Modernity

I wrestle with modern behaviour and sometimes don’t understand it at all. This guy has been messaging and commenting on my social media photos for *years*. He’s funny and quirky. But after I offered to meet him in a public park, radio silence. Apparently face to face contact is not the goal at all. Meeting a new friend was my goal. But he seems to prefer typing the alphabet to me on his phone. I honestly don’t get it.

Just block him and forget about him. Leopards cannot change their spots.

You want to escalate, he isn’t interested in escalation.

Not to be too obnoxious, but if this was a woman going radio silent with a man then complaining about the escalation being rejected you’d be figuratively drawn and quartered in the square of public opinion.

With all respect, you should respect his decision and move on. He doesn’t owe you an explanation. He is free to make his own choices and not be answerable for them, no different than if he was a woman, gender non-conforming, or non-binary person.

Modern behaviour?

What? I think we don't want to kill the Earth like mom and grandpa, that's modern.

Yeah, the boomers that I know really couldn't care less of what's taking place with the environment despite watching news reports on the 'climate crises'. I'm not joking, when the news is over they go right back to discussing cruises and car purchases. It doesn't even register in their brains what's taking place on earth. One I know claims he was a hippy in the early 70s. He sits all day in his enormous home and own three cars. What a mess we're in.

Why do you feel entitled to men's bodies?
