Sexting and roleplay via text can be a lot of fun, and it can even be great for your relationship. With one crucial caveat: Both parties have to be into it.
Last week, a Reddit user who goes by the username TheOwlAndTheFinch posted a series of screenshots of a conversation between herself and a man who she said had been “begging for weeks to do a ‘sexy roleplay'” with her.
“I finally said yes,” she wrote. “I think he regrets everything now.”
Upon looking at the screenshots, we can see why. Her matter-of-fact responses are understandably reluctant at first, and get hilariously mood-killing as the conversation goes on.
“For some persistent people, simply not talking doesn’t work,” she wrote on Reddit. “They are perfectly content to keep spamming until you respond, so you have to give them a reason to not want to respond.”
In a further comment in the thread, she clarified that she does know the guy (though they haven’t met in real life), and he’s not just a random stranger who happened to text her. She met him on Steam, a video game platform. He has made some unwanted advances, she said, adding that he’s generally harmless.
In case you thought their conversation ended after those screenshots, it didn’t. Luckily, she’s come up with a perfect solution for keeping him at bay (since she says she personally doesn’t like to have to block people).
“He’s crazy persistent,” she noted in a comment. “This whole thing was two weeks ago, and now every time he tries to message me anything at all, I just say something along the lines of, ‘Sorry, the zipper’s stuck. Gimmie a minute.’ It’s worked like a charm.”
