What is the most extreme thing you've done to get a person to stop being interested in you?
When I had a daycare, one of the mothers had a boyfriend who was in jail. Then he got out of jail and came with her to pick the child up. He was a huge, hulking mindless and very frightening individual and he scared the crap out of me. (Like what Lilly C said…he was just creepy in that way you just know but can’t explain.) And he made it very clear that he was interested in me for sexual reasons. The fear kept me up at night, literally. I was very close to letting it “slip” to the mother that I had AIDS (I DON’T!!!) but before I had to resort to that he wound up back in jail.
Another time I went out on a couple of dates with a guy, decided I wasn’t the least bit interested. After he brought me home from our last date I was thinking, “Oh lord. He’s gonna want to kiss me and I really REALLY don’t want him to!”
Sure enough, he moved in….and without thinking I said, “Did you know that after 5 years of celibacy you can reclaim virgin status?” I don’t know WHERE that came from, but there it was! And it gave him pause just long enough for me to slip away! Heh!
