I already have trouble initiating phone contact with boys I like, but every now and then I'll feel a rush of confidence and send my homeboy some flirty texts. So, it's doubly troubling when my efforts are misconstrued. I think the problem is that you thought I was being supercreepy when I was just trying to be sweet.
For instance, I thought I was being cute when I texted you, "I'm right outside your office." I was running around doing errands downtown! I thought I'd let you know I was close to you in case you wanted to give me a smooch on your lunch break. It was innocent!
Or, the time I texted, "I'm counting the minutes until I see you again." Again, I was trying to be cute! I wasn't seriously counting the clock. That's crazy!
I think the final straw was when I texted, "I can't stop thinking about you. When can I see you again?" I WAS BEING FLIRTY! I was trying to show signals of interest to encourage you. So, when you told me that I was starting to freak you out, I was stunned.
Now, looking back over my outbox, I see how I came off as stalker-ish. I regret that. I clearly need to hire someone to handle all of my communications with men for the rest of my life.
