She’s just not that into you

It baffles me that some people don’t know when to give up. Persistence is good up to a point. A point where you think you still have a chance. Beyond that, it’s not your game any more and you should throw in the towel.

There are many signs which point to a girl not being interested in you. If she’s not responding to your texts, that’s a pretty clear indication that you’re not all that important to her. Then why don’t men pick up on such cues? Why do they insist on torturing themselves?

Exhibit A

A string of one sided texts with no response from me.

Exhibit B

More texts, several days apart. Note that the sender realises the lack of response but thinks it's a technical glitch with his phone. Seriously?

Exhibit C

Failing to get my attention on Whatsapp, he attempts to message me on OKC. Again, citing technical problems. PLEASE, somebody, give him a clue!

Okay, granted, I should have said something. But it was quite entertaining to see how far he’d go. Cruel, I know. Such is the reality of online dating platforms. If this had happened to me, I would have stopped trying a long time ago. 

UPDATE:

Despite the radio silence on my part, he STILL was adamant on messaging me. Eventually I decided to give him a firm, unambiguous answer. He responded with a rather bitchy, butt-hurt message and also gave me a middle finger. 

This guy is just down right weird. He says “All good” with a smiley face, then proceeds to tell me karma will bite me in the ass. Bipolar much? Also, what’s karma got to do with anything? I changed my mind about meeting him because his OKC picture looked nothing like his Whatsapp photo. His Whatsapp photo resembled a troll face… No way I’m getting near that.
