That is usually the response of someone who has no coping mechanisms or self-esteem. You were being honest and direct. You were not trying to mislead this person. You are allowed to say, “I’m just not feeling a connection here” and following up with no longer interested in texting. Nothing wrong with that. What IS wrong is to continue to mislead someone with faux interest. And it is not cool to make someone feel like crap just because they aren’t instantly smitten. She’s not interested. Ok. Move along. But I’m sure it would have been peachy if he had been the one to tell you he wasn’t interested. Right? Why do (some guys) resort to calling a woman a bitch simply because she isn’t interested? You’d rather power-play on her politeness and make things super awkward by manipulating her to keep up the pretense of liking you when she doesn’t? I sure wouldn’t want someone to hang out or date me just because they want to avoid the awkwardness of telling me they’re not interested. Go. Be free. I’m not someone I want you to settle for. Be confident guys. Somewhere there is a lady out there who will want to hang with you without the games. Just don’t call her a bitch whenever she disagrees with you. That is not how you get someone to fall for you in any sense of healthy.
