Nowadays, it’s considered “clingy” when you double-text or call someone instead of messaging, even though it’s not really that big of a deal. But this one dude – let’s call him Broseph – takes it to a whole new level. He gets a little too attached to a girl he doesn’t apparently know that well; after his crush admits she’s not feeling it with him, it gets cringeworthy. Broseph lashes out despite being turned down in the most polite and reasonable way possible, reminding us that some men are actual garbage.
Reddit user lossaysswag is friends with the girl and posted screenshots of the awful texts this guy sent to her to get some opinions from the Internet. Broseph starts off seemingly normal, if even a little bold. He straight up tells this girl that he has a crush on her and wants to know her better:
Broseph is down for literally anything, so long as this girl will be in the general vicinity as him. Eager beaver much? Although he seems sweet and somewhat successful in his career, the over-enthusiasm has a hint of desperation there.
According to the Reddit poster, they had just barely met a few days before. And Broseph’s already drunk-texting her! Not that being sober would prevent him from speaking his mind, apparently:
Yikes. The girl’s subtle hint about not being able to have a crush on him goes waaaaaay over his head; it’s not just about him not really knowing her, but also her not really knowing him. Broseph even makes a comparison to “love at first sight.” If that’s not a warning sign, we don’t know what is.
So the girl tries for Plan B: ignoring Broseph’s messages. Even after the 14 O’s in that last message, she’s not too keen on answering. Somehow, Broseph doesn’t get the very clear sign that his advances are unwanted, and decides that he’ll skip some of the subtler methods and go all-freaking-out:
Yep. He sent flowers, an edible arrangement, a gift basket and a teddy bear to a girl he BARELY KNOWS. Broseph, why.
That was when the girl decided to confront him. She does so very politely and respectfully, even thanking him for the gifts. And that’s when sh*t went down:
Oh man, where to start.
Broseph isn’t a little much. He’s a LOT much, and that definitely shows when his first instinct is barrage this poor chick with text after text of insecurity and hyper-masculinity. The kind of dude who blames the girl for not liking “real men” who treat her wrong just because she doesn’t return his attraction is the kind of dude that you don’t ever want to date. It gets more awful when Broseph claims that he can have a crush on her – no matter how well they know each other – but it’s crazy that the girl could write him off without getting the chance to know him.
But don’t you worry! It gets worse!
Seriously cringing so hard now. Especially with the whole “Okay, I’m done…WAIT HERE’S MORE PETTY ANGER” approach. Sounds like he’s the one with “unsolved” issues…
Broseph’s awful attempts to blame the girl’s rejection on her flaws only prove his own inability to handle any sort of rejection. And also that she definitely dodged a bullet. Hopefully Broseph will learn that being a “real man” isn’t about being a whiny baby about rejection, but handling it with grace and acceptance of the fact that women’s feelings are valid too. In the meantime, the Internet will continue to cringe at the existence of these texts.
