I got a text and call from date last week. He asked me if I were free tonight for a date and he asked if we were even talking. I resisted responding at first to give me some time to be civil. I then replied with a generic hi. He asked how I was, and I told him I was alright. He asked how my bird walks were. I told him fine. There was 15 minutes of silence, then I said "listen, I was really bothered by many of the events of last week, and cannot continue. I wish you nothing but the best." He wrote back and asked what I was bothered by. I didn't reply before being bombarded by there were some major red flags about me, but he thought he should look optimistically and give me the benefit of the doubt. I told him I was sorry he felt that way, but I really did not feel I could continue because of my gut feelings. He told me that I should have offered to pay my own on the date (which I did), he told me I shouldn't prey on old guys, and he's sorry we can't be together. Trying to guilt me, but also manipulate me into staying, and feeling guilty. No thanks. He sent another message asking why we don't just fuck. I told him that I wished him nothing but the best, and ended it. I blocked, then removed him from my buddy list, and my phone. I don't know if I handled it well- I suppose I could have told him what bothered me, but I was not in the mood to argue, and something told me it would be a no win situation.
