My experience with people like that, and I'm sure you've found this also (as has R &E, unfortunately), that NORMAL thinking and NORMAL logic simply don't apply. You obviously were optimistic enough at the beginning, innocent and unsuspecting. And it is SO frustrating to think that what we would do in terms of a "discussion" just can't happen. Good people like you can't meet those kind of people on their level.
If it makes you feel any better, I was getting messages from some pervert a couple of nights ago. Live on the 'net!!!!
: Hi Marcia,
: : >>You are probably right, Chris, but his first letter was just ambiguous enough to sound like he might really be wanting a dialog, and I usually give everyone who writes me the benefit of the doubt...for awhile!
: Dang sneaky idiots! They just waste your time before showing their true colors.
: : >>Actually, what I did was to mark the last 12 of his emails "Return to Sender" in the subject line & send them all back to block up HIS email for awhile. Then I set my computer to automatically delete anything else he sends, rather than bounce it back to him. He'll never know whether I've read them or not.
: Oh, yes! A much better plan. I like it. :o)
: : Yes, I'm with you on that one...were I strolling along that riverbank, I couldn't get a frying pan heated up quickly enough!! Ummmmmmmm...salmon over the campfire. Heaven! *me, throwing sticks at the grizzlies, and telling them to fish on their OWN side of the river!*
: : MMMMarcia
: : *me, again, running for my life after determing that grizzlies do NOT like to have sticks thrown at them!*
: I was gonna warn you about that, but I see you've already learned your lesson. :o)
