Have you ever been on a bad date? I’m pretty sure we all have. We try and stick it out until the very end, we politely say “this was nice, maybe I’ll call you sometime” even though we don’t mean it, and hope we never run into them again.
Well, for one guy, “Mike”, he couldn’t take the hint that “Lauren” didn’t enjoy herself on their date. She never returned his calls, so he continued to pursue her via a 1,600 word email (he Googled her address). Guess the guy can’t take rejection very well but he’d definitely ace a book report. This embarrassing email is longer than any college paper I ever wrote!
It begins with:
I’m disappointed in you. I’m disappointed that I haven’t gotten a response to my voicemail and text messages.
FYI, I suggest that you keep in mind that emails sound more impersonal, harsher, and are easier to misinterpret than in-person or phone communication. After all, people can’t see someone’s body language or tone of voice in an email. I’m not trying to be harsh, patronizing, or insulting in this email. I’m honest and direct by nature, and I’m going to be that way in this email. By the way, I did a google search, so that’s how I came across your email.”
The rejected guy goes on to explain how he believes their date went well because of their consistant eye contact, great conversation over dinner and the fact that she said “it was nice to meet you” at the end. He calls her immature and impolite for leading him on.
“I think we should go out on a second date. In my opinion, our first date was good enough to lead to a second date,” he writes. But that makes one of them. After his novel of an email (that she most likely spread around the internet) it’s safe to say he wont be getting that second date anymore.
“People don’t grow on trees. I hope you appreciate the potential we have,” he writes. The only potential this sore loser has now is landing the top spot on andPOP’s Top Facepalms of 2011.
