A lot of us are used to getting some unsavoury responses when we reject someone that we’ve been talking to romantically.
However, when this woman politely said that she didn’t want to take things any further with this man, his response was just rude.
When Sarah, a 24-year-old master’s student and freelance journalist from Nottingham, had decided that she no longer wanted to pursue anything with the man, she sent him a message reading: “Ah it’s okay. I hope you don’t mind if we just end it here. Sorry if that comes across as rude!”
His reply started off well before taking a sudden and alarming turn: “lol no worries at all. Honestly, could tell you were type that slept about but i just wanted you to confirm my bias!”.
Sarah then shared the message with her Twitter followers, with a caption that said: “I am SO tired of grown ass men not being able to handle rejection and being so insecure that they feel the need to backlash. What’s worse is I was expecting this because I’m so used to it. Men, do better please.”
Sarah spoke to Tyla about the events leading up to these messages and how the ordeal made her feel.
She firstly explained how the two of them had met on a dating app where conversation started pretty normally: "He messaged first and asked how I was and what I do etc.
“After I didn’t reply for a few minutes I got a message from him saying “why did you leave your ex” to which I replied how he knew I even had an ex. He said he “could tell” which I asked him to elaborate on but he didn’t really.
“He kept asking if I left my ex because “he wasn’t good enough for me” and I tried to explain that it was more complicated than that. But he didn’t really understand and just said it was clearly because I thought he wasn’t good enough. I then asked him why he left his ex."
"He said she was great but she had some “strange bedroom antics.” I asked him if he wouldn’t mind elaborating, at which point he asked if he could switch to whatsapp instead. I didn’t really feel comfortable sharing my number and suggested social media but he claimed to not have either so we settled on iMessage."
The man then offered to change the topic, but Sarah decided that she didn’t want to continue the conversation so sent the message that she shared. After he sent his reply, she told him that she found it “rude”. He then confessed that everything he had said about his ex was a lie and that he had just been “testing” her. This led to Sarah blocking his number.
"At first I was just angry because I could tell this was going to happen, but I just hoped I was wrong. I don’t think I said anything wrong and in fact, I was nothing but polite. My mood did dip a little and I did question whether what he was saying was true but even if it is, it doesn’t give him the right to be mean."
Too right Sarah, good for you for calling him out!
