The whole previous argument feels to have been defused by a post about a poster's kid in cosplay.

...

This is awesome, just sayin'.

Kicking myself for two reasons:

1. I'm not happy with my AP test scores.
2. I should be happy with these scores, because a lot of people would love to have them, but I'm not.

Not sure which I'm more angry about.

But hey! I guess I get to tell other people how they should feel about rape and rape jokes now.
And yay for that article! I just finished reading it.

In other news, I discovered today that the friend's boyfriend who sent me that weird shit? He's been sending stuff like that to other girls too. And each time, it's written in a completely different style. You'd think a different person wrote each letter.
And when my friend broke up with him he:

1. Told her he had physically seen actual demons.
2. Impaled his hand on an ice scraper and had to get stitches.
and
3. Waited for her outside her office building, making her too scared to leave work. (He has an app in his car with which he can track her movements as long as she's in the car.)

He's a sociopath. Or something. It's become pretty obvious. I haven't heard from her in a few hours and I'm honestly worried for her safety.

Damn, I wanted that situation to keep being weird and funny. What a dark turn. I hope he doesn't hurt anybody.

Here's what he sent me:

Quote:
Katie,

I'm sorry for sending this message anonymously, but I'm just not at a point where I can put my name out there. But seriously, I had to get this off my chest - even if this is anonymous.

You see, I've been a friend of yours for some time, and I've been keeping a secret from you, from our mutual friends, and from someone I am involved with. You even once asked me to confess without realizing it...so here it is, a secret I couldn't tell you before.

I've got a huge crush on you, and I've become very attracted to you.

It wasn't there at first, and when it did start to blossom I did my best to ignore it. I was seeing someone (still am), you were seeing someone (still are), and it just seemed like one of those crushes that is futile at best and self-destructive at worst.

But you have to be so damned beautiful, and you have to be so damned cool to talk to.

I knew and I still know that I'm no match for Jojo...you two are pretty set-in-stone as far as I'm concerned. And he's got a lot going for him. Then there's the fact that I'm involved with someone that is pretty awesome herself. But you're sort of like this star that eclipses the others in the sky. I just cannot stop having this growing attraction to you. You make my heart beat faster every time I hear from you, and you don't even know it.

What's funny, is that both my partner and yours have shown jealousy before when you and I had some good conversations. I even got called out on it by mine, but I denied it shamelessly. I thought I could just take command of the situation...but I haven't been able to.

It's strange.... I've got this powerful sexual attraction to you that thrills me more than it has with any other woman out there, leading to fantasies of picking you up and either having passionate sex with your bacl against a wall or turning you over the edge of a bed and and...well, yeah, you don't need this to be one of those creepy pervy secret admirer messages, so I'll stop right there. Just know it's pretty intense sexual urges, and there's a level of passion inside for me that I just don't have with my partner and have actually NEVER had for any partner before.

Anyway, what's strange is I have really exciting sexual desires like that, but then I also have this strong yearning to hike with you through the woods, walk down white stand beaches in the tropical islands with you, and even just the desire to whisk you away to some indie-owned coffee shop where no one we know would be, and just talk about all of the cool stuff that you enjoy talking about. Your personality and interests are cool as shit, and I could sit there for hours talking to you and I would savor it like it was Olympian wine.

So, okay...I'm sure this whole thing is weird and you're going to be like, "What the fuck?" Sorry about that. It's just...I need you to know I have these feelings, even if you don't know who I am right now. Heck, you may figure it out and if you do I just ask that you keep this confidential and message me privately if at all. Nothing has to happen from any of this. My fantasy is that you'll figure it out, meet up with me in secret, and that we'll make out like crazy between awesome conversations, even if it's just one time and everything goes back to normal after that. My expectation is that you won't figure out who I am, that you'll chalk this message up to a creepy nerd who doesn't have enough balls to confess to you for real, and that this will end up becoming an awkward story for you to tell your friends. Yay.

Anyway, hopefully you're at least a little flattered to have a secret admirer who you've managed to completely get to swoon over you (without even trying, based on your hot looks and you awesome personality), and hopefully as you make your move to NYC this gives you a confidence boost that makes your life a little awesomer.

Feel free to reply if you want to, and tank you Katie for giving me something exciting to dream about. It's been fun, for what it's worth.

- Your Secret Admirer

I know, right?

Here's what he sent the other girl, whose name has been changed.


Quote:
Dear Iliana,

You're probably going to laugh at this, but well...I'm a secret admirer.

I mean, how can I not be? You're insane, you're fun, you're not boring, your interests rock, you have cool friends, and you're so hot that it's just not right.

I haven't seen you in a while since you started college, but...spending time with you was always really awesome. It's way more spicy than the rest of this mundane life.

And then there's the mushy stuff. How I find myself staring at you when you're not looking. How you're so beautiful that I get those stupid fucking butterflies that no guy is supposed to admit to getting. How you're so hot and such a turn-on that I have to take a cold shower after thinking about you for too long, 'cause all I want to do is live out my steamy daydreams of you.

I know, it sounds pretty lame, huh?

So why am I not throwing myself at you if I feel this way?

Well, I'm pretty sure this whole fantasy is one-sided, for one.

For two, I'm in a relationship that's good enough that I feel kind of stuck in place between where I'm at and imagining the fun it would be to go out with you. Sort of like a tug of war that ain't goin' anywhere.

But seriously, you'd probably not be interested. I kind of think of myself as plain looking, a bit more boring, and not anywhere CLOSE to looking like one of those J-Pop guys you used to have on your laptop background.

Anyway, so it's probably a really unproductive crush, but it's strong enough and persistent enough that I had to tell you...even if it is anonymously.

Just...know that you're really special, really cute, really pretty, and that whatever asshole steals your heart is the luckiest guy in Houston. 'cause you're easily the best catch in this town by far. And that if he's not me, that there will be a guy secretly wanting to rack the clown for having such a freaking goldmine of a hottie fall into his arms.

If you want to reply, feel free. If you want to email and guess who I am, go for it - I'll own up if you guess my identity correctly on the 1st try. Just 1 try, tho. I know you. You'll copy/paste your whole Facebook friends list if I don't make it a 1st try thing. You're that way!

Take care, Iliana...

- Your Secret Admirer
See? See how he changed his writing style completely based on what he thought we wanted? The one he wrote me was more "writerly" ("Olympian Wine." PFFF!) and the one he sent her is all "Yo, you're so hot." Neither of these are how he talks.
I swear to Jesus he's a sociopath.

I am unfamiliar with this term.

EDIT: God, my avatar is so appropriate for this thread over the past thirty-six hours.

Totally.
And his story today is that he was on medication that made him have ridiculous sexual urges.

Well, you know what he could have done? Have sex with my friend, whom he has not touched, even though she really wanted to try to be more intimate. Why the fuck would you email chicks you know and act like someone else?

And that "I was on medication!" story seems pretty convenient.
But no. He was caught being a dickhole and is trying desperately to weasel and manipulate his way out of it.
Fuck this guy, man. He's scary and awful.

Memo to the men out there: nine times out of ten, secret admirer letters are cowardly and kind of creepy, not cute.

She pmed me too! And said something that unsettled me so I just blocked her.... she wasn't being very understanding/trying to get their sides of the story. And if she didn't trust I'd keep it to myself (which I only told Loli and Emmers who never said anything) then why'd she pm me?

She literally thought I told you because you used the word "clique" and I used "clique" because you used it.... time stamps bitch.....
