I mentioned The Old Dude in my last post: he invited me over to his house for a beer. He was okay to talk to but I wasn't the slightest bit attracted to him. As well, I suspect he was considerably older than the age he claimed on his squirt profile, probably in his mid-60s at least. As I left, I told him that I was not going to be hooking up with him.
He apparently wasn't listening because in the past several days, he tried to contact me by means of e-mail, cell phone texting, voice mail and sending both messages and trying to start chats on squirt.org. I received 3 or more attempted contacts for each of these five methods. Clearly, ignoring him wasn't working!
Finally, I responded to his message on squirt.
Old Dude: I wish I knew why u are ignoring me.
Buddy Bear: Sorry, I thought I did tell you clearly how I felt when I was at your house. Whether or not a person is attracted to another person is a highly personal thing.
I did enjoy chatting with you and the idea of going on your boat or going fishing* had it's appeal; you are an interesting person. But I wasn't attracted to you physically. At my age and at my level of self-respect, I don't HAVE to hook up with some one if I don't want to. (*he owned a 25 foot cruiser and owned some 40 acres of wilderness islands offshore,complete with a modern log cabin).
Do you remember that I told you something like this: "Do you know how you want some guy to help you figure out whether or not you like guys? Well, it isn't going to be me." That meant that I didn't want to hook up with you.
And all your e-mails, texts, chat attempts and squirt messages were just starting to becoming frankly alarming to me. Sorry if I wasn't clearer on how I felt.
Old Dude: sorry _____ , hope that you have a great life, bye
I felt a bit sorry for him and wondered if I was too blunt with him. But he was starting to seriously creep me out.
