"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."
And so she did exactly that. We'll let the screenshots speak for themselves. Let's just say that this roleplay probably didn't go as the guy planned.
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."
