I went on a first date with a seemingly nice, independent, self-confident guy on a Sunday…by Monday, all of that changed. He sent a text the morning after our date informing me that he was reaching out for his “obligatory post-first date communication.” When I chose not to respond to his ridiculous and off-putting attempt at creating a connection, I was harassed for multiple days by an incredibly rude, needy, insecure guy who ended our brief encounter with a text that posed the question, “I’m a big boy…What, just cut like that?” Yes, I guess I do just cut like that.
