Answer My Texts


Answer My Texts

you never answer my texts

he texts me

why not

he wants to be a friend

to know what I’m up to

one day the texts came so fast

he didn’t know

which one I was replying to

when in fact

I didn’t want to reply to any

it was a waste of my time

plus I hate texting & walking

it was none of his business

what I was up to

at any given moment

he wanted to made sure

I wasn’t having sex

when I wasn’t even having sex with him

he wanted to be my friend

I wasn’t sure why

we had little in common

other than being male

we’d met twice face to face

which was enough for me

and he built on that

even as I made it clear I wasn’t interested

after the flurry of texts

to set up that first meeting

I knew I wasn’t interested

I am not suspicious by nature

but I value my privacy

there is nothing worth discovering

no trade secrets

no best-seller plots to pirate

he wants something

I’m not sure what it is

but I’ll never text fast enough

to find out

28-toy01Law 14 brought to mind a piece based on an actual experience. My brush with one of the dangers of on line life – the stalker. A guy I might have developed more with if he hadn’t turned into a needy nut case so fast. It was the texting that put me off. Turns out his phone takes text dictation – hands free.

28-toy02The first meeting was okay too. One of those guys who are almost mute when they are face to face with someone. Not that I’m a chatter box but it was odd to meet someone who communicated best with a device. But I do see people texting each other when they are in the same room, at the same table – a generational thing. Plus he had a very thick accent so I understood the need to text.

He was presentable but man I don’t need or seek a text addicted guy who after meeting once starts to text me first thing in the morning. I call that a red flag. I’d delete his texts without reading them. I told him directly to stop & he said he would if we could meet again. Which we did. He didn’t knock at the door he texted that he was here 🙂

28-toy03I wrote recently about lack of chemistry & this was the case here – mainly because of his communication skills. I told him directly I wasn’t interested. He texted the next day, the day after. I found it weird. I wasn’t sure what he was after. He wanted friends, I didn’t, he wanted too much too fast & didn’t know how to go about getting it.



I eventually blocked him on line. His pose was one of wanting friends, a lover, but in reality he wanted a caretaker. I stopped responding. Telling him to stop was permission to him to ask why I wanted him to stop. I can be a nice guy but co-dependancy is not my thing.
