I’m 26. What’s a filter?

There are very few times I use this blog as a personal sounding board. It’s now my 26th birthday, and despite my general distaste for “today I went to Whole Foods and then made a protein-packed paleo Pinterest-procured pizza” writer-driven life posts, this is just something I had to share, if only for other comfortably single women in their 20s.

It all started two weeks ago, when I met some rando at a bar. He was friendly enough, but annoyingly and sloppily drunk, which is why I offered my email address when he asked for my number. We emailed later that weekend, and I met up for a few drinks, which eventually turned to dinner, and then champagne. We had relatively good chemistry, but then, I kinda have chemistry with pretty much everyone, because I really like talking to people and winning over complete strangers.

We had dinner the following weekend (as in, two days ago), and it was equally  fun. I invited him to my birthday party, which I’m holding this weekend for my closest 125 friends. He wouldn’t be in town, so he scheduled a weekend in Virginia wine country the following weekend. It seemed a bit much, but I agreed to a singular day trip. When we parted that day, I didn’t think much of anything. In fact, I actually headed out to a bar to meet up with a former lover from 2012, with whom I may or may not entertain a few exchanges here and there. #timesbeing.

So imagine my surprise–which quickly turned to fury–when I received the following text out of the blue yesterday. FYI I have done absolutely no editing on this conversation; the previous dialogue is from Saturday night when he told me not to dress up (I haven’t dressed down since 2k5), and I jokingly asked if I shouldn’t wear my ball gown.

I was stunned into paralysis. I had no words–this never happens–and I just felt short of breath. There were many things that pissed me off, but I was so flustered I couldn’t even articulate them. Again, this is a serious problem for a writer and effusive communicator.

I was still so agitated 10 hours later that I had to leave opera rehearsal early. This is a serious no-no, given that opening night is Saturday at the Organization of American States.

Then I realized: I am on the eve of my 26th birthday. Why am I stewing instead of just expressing what I really feel? There is practically nothing to lose from just telling the truth.

So then it came. “And it came. And it came.” –(illicit tax-payer funded sext. Don’t worry, these have since been screenshotted to his superiors).

Cheers to 26! And may I (and you, and your girlfriends, moms, grandmothers, daughters, etc.) never remain silent in the bombastic, outrageously chauvinistic face of an insecure man. After all, only two months ago did a writer describe me as such when asked about my relationship status: “she blushes, giggling a bit. Translation: Ms. Woodward Pu is quite happy being single.”

Damn straight.

    • When Quin Woodward Pu—an overweight, insecure barfly from Georgia with a penchant for Twinkies, daytime TV and visually challenged and desperate men—receives her acceptance to Weightwatchers Institute, she is forced to make a decision between giving up her 8-designer-cupcake-a-day, sloth-like ways and pursuing a more sanctimonious and less caloric intensive path. Type A Diabetes is the memoir of her transition from feeling-eater to outspoken advocate of puerile, self-obsessed blogging. Like many Asian-Americans, she butts heads with her first-generation Chinese father when she strays from his life plan for her to be a subservient, quiet and productive member of society. She is encouraged by her equally clueless friends—from a nearly aborted housewife, to a behemoth BFFL, to a middle-aged psychiatric patient boyfriend—to follow her chocolate-coated dreams of becoming a victim of a drug band message board.

        • Ugh, I agree. This woman is SHAMEFUL! The irony is this blog post was suppose to make her look like some kind of “hero” when really it makes her the villain in this situation. She needs to grow up. She should be thankful that this man was honest with her, and tried to move on in an adult manner. I don’t know why she’s even dating, as she’s clearly not mature enough to be in a relationship. This woman makes us all look bad. Truly shameful. Maybe put your nothing blog on hold and focus on working on yourself. You clearly need a lot of work lady. So glad this story went viral with her picture so everyone knows to stay away from this toxic woman. She really needs to learn a lesson that someone treating you bad does not entitle you to be an asshole!

          • Honestly can’t agree with you enough, seen this posted from Sick Chirpse and was cringing through reading this. Honestly don’t know what the guy done wrong, he was honest, genuine and not a douche bag. This vile woman then proceeds to humiliate and insult the poor guy? Seriously, this woman has issues.

            If you read this Quinn, think about getting professional help. Maybe your 125 friends or selling one of your various houses can help you pay for it! Oh! Or maybe even some royalties from your – no doubt – egotistical and self righteous books!

            You deserve everything you get and every bad thing that happens to you, you horrible horrible person.

            Luke 6:31 – “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

          • “She should be thankful that this man was honest with her, and tried to move on in an adult manner. ”

            are you fucking kidding me, he ended things with her through a TEXT MESSAGE, please explain to me what is adult about that?

            • Who the fuck DOESN’T end things through phone or text? Do you honestly think people schedule dates to go break the bad news to people in person so they can watch them freak out in front of them? What’s the difference HOW you break the news to someone? Get a grip.

              • I’m not saying people don’t do it, but I still don’t believe it’s an “adult manner”
                I am also not saying that what she did is right, does it make for good blog material, I suppose, would I hope majority of people would not react that way, absolutely.

            • As she said herself. They had spent a collective 20 hours together. That does not constitute being in a relationship. So really he didnt “Break up” with her. he was honest about not wanting to get into a relationshup let her know where she stood. How isnt it ok to do that by text ? We are only getting her side. Maybe he had already worked out she was a vindictive psycho and that this was the safest way for him to end it without suffering some form of bodily harm.

              Fer her to go to the lengths she did and the vile text and actions she claims she did (sending screenshots to his boss) … after a collective 20 hours !! … can you imagine breaking up with her after a month / year / 2 years together. There are probably bodies in her backyard for heaven sake !

            • They’ve only met in person TWICE.
              A text is perfectly appropriate.
              You clearly have dependency issues; I feel very sorry for your friend and family to have to put up with someone so needy like you.

      • “I am so mature, well-adjusted and above this kind of childish behavior.”

        *Proceeds to be the EXACT opposite of everything she says she is*

        *…blogs about it*

        …you pretty much deserve to be unhappy. Because you are a terrible fucking person.

        • CAN WE TELL THE TRUTH HERE?

          She’s a fat, ugly, disgusting piece of shiiit and it’s luck this guy dumped this slab of bacon. Imagine if he actually ended up with this disgusting ugly hog lol!

        • Agreed. I have to say, airing a grievance with a dude who was basically attempting to be polite (based upon the displayed text messages in the blog alone) detracts from any credibility she may have had. Bitch. And yes, I’m throwing that word around, but in this case, she really deserves it.

          Despite her claim to feminist righteousness, I think she’s undermining the very cause she purports to support by confusing public vs private issues and using a movement to justify her poorly-formed emotional-coping skills.

            • And she says ‘two published books’ like it’s some kind of mega achievement when the reality is, lots of people publish books these days. Doesn’t mean they’re any good, and doesn’t mean people read them, LOL… How fucking narcissistic is this woman? Jesus.

              • Her books are SELF-PUBLISHED, so I’m not sure why she keeps bragging about her “published books” at all. It’s not like a legitimate publisher actually liked her work and wanted to distribute it. She had to go to a vanity press and give them money to print her writing. Absolutely anyone can write anything and then pay to have it “published” in that sense.

      • This girl is obviously a needy, easily-attached, control freak looking to latch on to any guy who will pay her any attention. If you’ve only known someone for two weeks you don’t know each other well enough to be “boyfriend and girlfriend” unless you’re desperate, which means this guy didn’t break up with her. He just realized how much of a mental case she was and decided to break it off before she either claws in any deeper. And judging by this girl’s vindictive bitchy attitude it was probably best to do it over text message, because she seems like the type to flip out and cause a scene, key your car, start acting like a man and take some swings at you, throw her shoes at you, take your pick.

        Her looks and her race have nothing to do with this, that’s stupid. But any man who comes into contact with this girl should turn around and RUN. If you mistakenly let her get her reptilian claws into you, do like James Franco and saw your arm off with a tiny Swiss Army knife saw. You’re better off with one arm than with two arms plus the weight of this human leach breathing down your neck.

        Quin Woodward Pu, go stick your face in a dirty toilet and bob for some integrity.

      • I just google-piced the chick. Fucking impressive. Considering that the dude was loaded the first time he met her, it is little wonder that he flew the coop after seeing her again sober, even if it apparently took him two dates to regain his visual senses.

      • He realized she was a self absorbed annoying human and did not want to see her again. She knows it is true and reacted according to her own insecurities. Looooosssssser

    • Who wants some ping pong fish head Asian noodle face with a slangy eyed snatch anyway? She should be doing two dolla sucky sucky bang bang in a dark alley in Chinatown, not butt raping stand up dudes on the Internet. Honestly, you need to take your fat pan head self over to the east river and jump in.

    • I’m not sayin this is what happened here. BUT, sometimes I have plans to meet one of those light footed Asian bitches in wine country. Then I take her out a few days before to see what’s up. Problem is, every now and then I get her naked and I realize the tits are too far apart and point oddly to the sides and five fingers go in like a greasy slip and slide. At that point I start searching for the ejection lever.

      • HI RACIST! My condolences for having to live with yourself and being angry every single day of your life with the world when really it is just you who has the ugly on the inside. You are no better than the unfair and egotistical, childish, blogger who wrote this piece. Guess you had better jump into the east river too, according to your scale.

      • Don’t do that. Seriously, asshole, don’t pull the death threat/call you whore/cunt card. Call her out for bad behavior, maybe she’ll learn something but DON’T FUCKING THREAT her with DEATH and DON’T USE GENDERED INSULTS, you dipshit because now you are THAT GUY on the internet.

          • My 2 cents:

            1. Ms. Woodward Pu’s response to a fairly innocuous “not that into you” was excessive to the point of being unhinged.

            2. The level of racist and misogynistic vitriol being directed at her is far more excessive and unhinged.

            • Agree with both points. Her rant was out-of-proportion crazy, even if played for laughs… but the hateful posts here are slightly shocking in intensity. I say slightly, because this kind of shit is just too common on the internet. :(

              • What do you expect from the modern entitlement “princess” complex that the majority of women now embrace wholeheartedly… acting rationally isn’t exactly the norm for women anyways nowadays. Theirs a reason for the decrease in marriage(s) and relationships and this emotional trainwreck is a poster child for why….. time for her to invest in cat food and the full series of Sex and the City to pass the time for this future spinster:)

            • She probably ruined that guy’s life over a totally innocuous polite text message. What are a few nasty comments compared to that? Honestly, I don’t know how she can go to sleep at night after what she’s done. The worst part is, she’s so self-righteous about it. I think these comments are a totally natural reaction to such a disgusting human being.

          • eh-hem, still a threat according to, like, courts and judges and stuff. but that’s okay! please go ahead and defend someone who is violently overreacting to someone who overreacted! that totally doesn’t make you look like a moron either!

            • oh by the way, Merchant of Venice and Jared, the above comment is *sarcasm*, I thought I should probably explain that to you. have a great day threatening people on the internet!

            • Eh-hem, where did you get your legal opinion on this matter? The level of arrogance you used to relate such incorrect information is quite astounding. Hopes are not threats.

    • Looks like he broke up with this selfish, high maintenance, back stabbing bitch just in time.

      I can only imagine if they had been together a month, she probably would have set his car and other belongings on fire.

      Psycho broad…

    • Oh, you are probably right. He should have flat out ignored you. Or told you the truth, which would have been way less painful.

      It would have been something like, “You are kinda fat, not that interesting, and probably not good in bed. In fact, let’s end this now before I even find out.”

      You should just be appreciative of him trying to be nice.

      • Let’s see—he met her while “sloppy drunk”, sobered up, met her a 2nd time, tried to get drunk again on champagne just to deal with her nauseatingly pompous arrogance, and broke up with her in the classiest way possible for a woman of her caliber. It’s so frustrating that women like her think their cuntiness contributes positively to the feminist movement—and I’m speaking as a feminist.

    • Let me get this straight. A guy u just met and went on like 2 dates with simply tells you (politely I might add) that he’s not looking for anything at the moment, good luck and you forward private messages to his superiors?! Bitch are you for real?! That is the definition of crazy. He’s lucky he bounced when he did. How dare you jeopardize someone’s job just because he let you down. You’re 26? Honey you need to start acting your age and not your shoe size. No one cares how many things you’ve got published or what you’re working on. If you don’t have class you don’t have shit. You should seriously be ashamed of this behavior. You’re disgusting.

    • Seriously though, if you didn’t like this guy at all, why would you have even entertained the idea of catching up with him in the first place, let alone been so obviously upset by the whole situation? Clearly you seem to think that you are the ultimate catch and are quite upset that he was the one to call things to a halt. You are single, not because you want to be, but because you have Psychopathic tendancies, have really high opinion of yourself and are probably a drama queen to be around. hahahahahahahahah………..! Oh look at me I’m so hot, how could he have done this to me! Ablsolute pissa, sucked in! And I’ll bet becuase this is not supportive of your narcissistic ways, you will delete the post!

    • Maybe he was just afraid to tell you this in person because he felt that you are a crazy person, which you just comfirmed with this screenshots. Also, he was probably initimidated by your size, you could wrestle a grizly bear and walk away like a winner. Concider going on a diet, seriously. Maybe then boys won`t run away from you. Maaaybe.

    • Did… did she… did she just insult this poor guy’s 9 year old daughter???…. because… because… she… didn’t like being rejected????… =( I am so sorry for you Ms. Quin… I hope… I hope you get everything you need in this life.

    • What a vile excuse for a human being. Even after so many people point out how disgusting her behaviour is there’s no sign of remorse or regrets only threats. I sure hope this poor guy doesn’t have any further trouble from this vengeful bitch. He’s lucky he got away from this psycho as quick as he did.

    • This bitch sounds like a crazy person. That dude should consider himself lucky for not having to deal with her. He was nothing but polite and she was a bitch.

    • I can sum up this event quite simply. Narcissistic, egotistical, entitled princess who thinks she is gold meets a drunk guy who is blinded by alcohol (beer goggles). He does not see the true psycho before him.

      After he sobers up, it dawns on him but after meeting up, all of his worst fears are confirmed. He does the smart thing and cuts off contact before its too late. Some how being rejected suddenly makes this guy an ‘outrageously chauvinistic and insecure man’. I suggest you get over yourself but I must thank you for illustrating your true colours to all of the men out there because it’s things like this that help more men wise up every single day. If you do not get over yourself, in a few years you will not have much choice in the matter anyway. Your behaviour in this matter was beyond childish, you could have ruined someones career and regardless of whether someone rejected you through text or phone, you handled it like a spoilt girl. I hope one day you will reflect on your behaviour, learn from it and be humbled. However, that is very unlikely.

    • “I was stunned into paralysis. I had no words–this never happens–and I just felt short of breath.”

      it sounds like you were offended someone had turned you down – it happens.

      i do think its very petty to blow this up to the point of contacting his bosses with personal messages & to try shame him for something when in reality he chose the lesser of two poor options –

      1) go to your party then break up with you – which looks like he just wanted a free night out
      or
      2) be upfront and honest about not wanting to take it further

      yes the timing is very poor but timing sometimes cant be helped

  1. Happy Birthday Quin…..Congrats on staying true to your fantablulous self. I would love to see his face when he reads the LBB.

    • Way to condone such awful, immature behavior. You also seem like the same person who talks shit behind her back. PS. Please stop using the word “fantabulous”

    • I’m quite sure, after he picked his jaw up off the desk, he breathed a huge sigh of relief at having dodged a complete psycho bullet. Do you really think your girlfriend comes off looking good here? Because I think she looks a text or two away from a 5150.

      • I know what the boss who receives the ‘sexts’ will say: Dude! you stuck your d in crazy. Never stick it in crazy. Cause its crazy son ya hear me?!?

      • Has anyone clicked this guy’s twitter link? I’m not sure if this is performance art or if he’s actually a magic- the gathering tournament competitor from canada.

      • It frustrates me how people see an opinion they don’t agree with, and immediately assume “Stupid American”.
        Not that I think her response to the break up was at all reasonable. Ruining someone else’s career over relationship problems is messed up.

  2. You are completely unhinged. That you’d bother responding to him in such a negative way shows that you are horribly upset he rejected you, and that you’d try to get him fired shows that you are unstable at best and perhaps even dangerous at worst. I’m glad your name is on the internet attached to this bullshit because this poor martyr will help all other men dodge your psycho bullet.

      • Couldn’t agree more. This chick is totally off the deep end. I pray that there aren’t girls reading this blog thinking this is a normal way to react to a man who sent a very nice message saying that he didn’t want a relationship with you. Jesus H Christ. I think Quin LITERALLY thinks that her shit doesn’t stink. Well guess what Quinny…it does, and it smells like shit. That was the most swarmy, childish, and dickish response to anything I have ever read…let alone to a text as insignificant as that. Wow. “125 of my closest friends”…you don’t have that many friends bitch, and never will. I’d venture to guess that the only “friends” you do have are the few people as materialistic and childish as you…and they won’t be there once something new and shiny rolls around. Just because you obsessively add people on facebook and linkedin doesn’t mean they are your friends. Grow the fuck up. You’re making all of us in our mid 20’s to early 30’s look bad, especially girls.

  3. Good choice of words, Bob. I particularly like how you hone in on the unstable nature of her emotions (which is a given – she’s a woman!). Unhinged, dangerous, horribly upset. As a man in the now, I too agree that accusing women of acting solely out of emotion is our clarion call as men to make sure they are never considered our true equals. Women should be thrilled we talk to them at all, and accept our behavior no matter how ridiculously unhinged, self-centered, and potentially dangerous (to our careers – or otherwise) it is.

    Cheers!

    • She’s actively trying to get a person fiored from their job, only because they rejected her. in what way could you call this mentally stable? are you having a laugh?

    • What are you taking about? I’m a woman and a feminist, and this young woman has some serious, serious issues. She IS unhinged, and this sort of behavior is not healthy or conducive to a happy life full of successful relationships.

      • Sorry, but there are some sexist replies here, but many are from normal adjusted people who just think your friend Quinn has done a very shitty thing to a person who doesn’t seem to have deserved it. If 90% of people who have seen this story think Quinn is a shitty person, we shouldn’t be suprised if some of that 90% are misogynists, but that doesn’t invalidate everyone else’s opinion about what a shitty/unhinged person she seems to be.

    • I am disappointed in you, fellow Asian-American. For you to stoop so low to publicly shame a guy you barely knew. Did you know karma’s a bitch? For this very public act you’ve done, you can say good bye to having a respectable career.

      Also, 26 does not mean you know all in the world. For shame that you think 26 is a grown-up age when you act like this. I have no respect for people who get high and mighty. See what the next two years serve for you.

  4. What on earth is wrong with you? The guy sent an honest message including several compliments, why did you throw a shrew fit on him? If he went on the date, you would be whining that he was leading you on and criticizing him for not just telling you that he doesn’t want a relationship.

    • her biological clock is ticking, i hear it all the way over here.
      problem is, she was probably spoiled as a child and always had things go her way *on threat of tantrums*
      but it’s to be expected, they are the weaker sex. *mentally and physically*

    • Agreed. Unlike me, i would RSVP and not show up and ignore all the follow up messages. That’s just me. Dude now has to deal w/ this shit. Fuck you dumb bitch. Get well soon. And this is coming from a girl who makes more $ than you. Ps your blog sucks

  5. You sound like a child. I don’t even know you but I wouldn’t WANT to date you. He’s probably laughing and thinking to himself, “wow, I dodged a bullet.”

    Grow up. Guys get rejected all the time and we live with it.

    • she sent shit to his job and posted online he still got grazed by that bullet.
      Every man on the planet now has to avoid Quin Woodward Pu , you have been warned about how fucking crazy she is, she told everyone her self.

  6. So let me get this straight… you’re attacking him and potentially trying to get him fired because he was honest and forthright with you? Instead of giving you the fade out, or making excuses, he was honest. What’ wrong with that?

    • She is crazy.

      Guy dumps her and lets her down easy. This is what happens.

      1) Send crazy text to guy saying way more than needs to be said.
      2) Take screenshots of personal conversation with the guy and send to his boss.
      3) Go online, post screenshots of all personal texts and write a blog about it.
      4) Expect sympathy or praise but get none because you are completely out of your mind and are exactly the opposite of the adult woman you claim to be.

      Her actions were like a childish tantrum that just would not stop. I’d hate to see what happens to the guy who dumps her after 3 dates.

  7. Jesus Christ. You are completely unhinged and have zero self awareness. That your deep-seeded insecurities would extend themselves to taking vengeance on a guy for simply being uninterested in you is laughable and sad (amusing yet tragic). I predict a string of highs and lows, of bipolar proportions, for the remainder of your twenties culminating in the realization that your own delusional and warped worldview and masculine tendencies (make no mistake about it – your demeanor is entirely unfeminine and this is likely irreversible given your own unjustifiable confidence in your naive thinking) have precluded you from finding a man to settle down with. You will be alone, surrounded by your books, in your condo, with some cats. Just LOL @ how objectively insane you must be. In an earnest attempt to bestow good advice upon you, which, for your own sake, you should heed: take a look in the mirror and truly reassess what your priorities are. Your pride, and published feats of lackluster and mediocre writing, WILL NOT keep you warm at night when you are 36 and alone – and you will be if you keep this shtick up. Best of luck to you, my dear.

  8. Maybe you screenshot the wrong thing. I was expecting a lewd sext or something inappropriate. What I saw was a fairly thoughtful text from the dude and an over-the-top, self-promotional, vindictive, butt-hurt reply from you. Yikes

  9. So, from your own account and reading here, you had a couple of dates, he attempted to make sure you were on clear terms along with let you off gently and you decide a reasonable response was to attempt to destroy a career of a man with a child to support. And you chalk this up to “being 26″ and “not having a filter”? wow. I’m amazed.

    • I KNOW, RIGHT?
      I mean, way to be calm and balanced, you psychotic bitch. Good job, standing up for yourself against an unusually polite and complimentary rejection text that a normal person would appreciate as a courtesy. And way to show men what pigs they all are, by trying to ruin the career of a man with a child to feed. You sure showed him what happens to people who are polite to you.
      Man. Heaven help the guy that actually breaks up with you.
      That is, if you ever evolve that far, you whiny screeching harpy.

    • you nailed it. I’m just…I guess I am still in shock at this behavior. at how callous and reckless it is, at how devoid of perspective it is, at bottom, at how MEAN it is. It’s just…MEAN.

  10. I hope this is a joke.

    Also, you think a little too highly of yourself Quin. As a guy, we only care about your accomplishments in relation to your looks. So between two good looking women, a man will err toward the intelligent, funny, and accomplished one. However, between an unaccomplished good looking woman and a accomplished unattractive woman, we’ll pick the unaccomplished good looking woman every day of the week.

    You sound accomplished (of course it could be your strange narcissism), but you’re not very attractive. A bit overweight, actually. That’s why he did not want to give you a chance.

    • Am I alone in thinking getting people fired for blowing you out is probably the “gateway drug” for bunny boiling.

      but i digress

      So what lesson did we learn from today’s story folks?

      Yes, that’s right, “never respond to rejection texts whilst on the rag”

  11. Anyone needing some insight into what a terrible person she is should probably look at her “books,” which are exactly the sort of “look at me! look at me!” shenanigans you’ve come to expect from Obama’s America. Also, LOL at people who write for Examiner who think they’re “journalists.” Her parents have clearly filled her with a vastly overinflated sense of self-importance.

    Her book-length text is basically confirmation that she can’t handle rejection. It’s a huge list of reasons she supposes he should like her and some pretty pathetically transparent attempts to cut him down.

    In any event, any man who takes 10 seconds to Google her will know to run far, far away.

    • Well she does have a condo and more than 125 friends, as well as an award winning personality. After taking a moment to consider her blathering, I think it’s likely “friends” was actually “cats”. A 125 cat party is just too much for some people.

  12. Even though you trying to get someone fired for hurting you, and that is way over the line, I want to help and not just insult you. You should consider this intro link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcissistic_personality_disorder

    you have nearly 14 000 facebook photos of yourself. Perhaps you can use this event today as a wake-up call and turn it into something positive. It is not your fault for being narcissistic – you have done NOTHING wrong. But, I hate to see you destroy other peoples lives, and am afraid if you’re not careful, this is a real possibility.

    • She did nothing wrong? Are you fucking joking? She tried to destroy a mans life. “Oh but she wasn’t being herself”. That doesn’t make it okay. What if she drove him to suicide by not only ruining his job, but getting child services called on his kid? “It won’t matter because she is narcissistic.”
      White Knight elsewhere.

  13. “I am not an insecure little girl, to prove this I am going going to go on a narcissistic rant, try to get you fired and insult your daughter, because you don’t want to date me.”

    WAT

  14. Ignore the misogynistic idiots.

    The way he rejected you was condescending. “Sorry to be a downer” stinks of patriarchy, as if the rejection from a male is capable of destroy a woman’s passion for life. You were obviously being sarcastic with that gown comment, but he was too busy wallowing in his condescension to even consider it.

    Maybe next time he’ll think twice before doing what he did (and before your Birthday no less).

    • ^This is absolute trolling,

      The truth is–your fat. It is almost insufferable for an attractive female to act like a cunt, but we accept it because she is appealing to our eyes.

      You are not anywhere close to attractive. You are not entitled to behave this way because of this.

      • Please.

        So you think it’s perfectly acceptable to tell a girl to meet you at a romantic place for a week, and then dump her days before the event that YOU planned?

        It’s disgusting and just shows how arrogant he is (along with the perceived “dominance” he has over any girl that shows the slightest bit of interest in him).

        • He let her down politely.

          Are you saying that he should have been forced to follow through with his plans? That’s like saying a girl isn’t allowed to flake on a date.

        • As a guy, i have been rejected by countless women. I always appreciate when a girl can be honest before it gets too serious and real emotions become involved. How can you not see this? Is it only because you are a hateful bitch and you think that every man is scum? yeah, i think that must be it

        • Two comments here:

          1) This perspective on his response is dripping with insecurity. The invocation of “misogyny” in a situation like this is not indicative of a strong woman; a strong woman would brush this aside as “his loss.” Your (and the author’s) over-sensitivity to certain phraseology as being a slight or a show of male dominance is reflective of immaturity, and not strength of character. Saying “sorry to be a downer” was doubtlessly intended with no reference to male dominance, but rather to the simple nature of breaking off plans right before someone’s birthday. Switch the gender roles in this scenario if you don’t believe it.

          It has nothing to do with gender roles, and the need to frame it as such is indicative of a desire not for gender equality (as someone whose desire was for a gender neutral society would not so immediately perceive such things as an assertion of patriarchal dominance), but an oversensitivity to those issues. A true Feminist would be highly disappointed with this reaction, and would be infuriated with the author and responders such as yourself, Johanne, flying such a response under the banner of that movement.

          2) People need to stop attempting to interpret text messages. If you haven’t figured out at this point that people’s true sentiments are nearly always misconstrued through text, you need to unplug and start talking to people in real life for a while. Grow up.

        • You’re as unhinged as she is. “sorry to be a downer” does not stink of patriarchy. It’s actually the opposite. He’s clearly saying, hey, sorry for delivering some not so great news before your birthday…but in a more condensed version…and for all we know it could have been part of the conversation they had on the 2 dates.

          You an Quin need to take a long walk off a short bridge. She’s CLEARLY defined herself as an over inflated whacko and you are right there along with her.

        • SO he has to be emotionally raped or she gets to to this?
          Johanne, No that is wrong. So if a girl organise to come over for some sexy time and I’m an ass earlier in the night She still has to have sex because she organised it earlier?

          Choice is a 2 way street, he gets it too!
          she had no right to talk to his employer or post online, she could have sent him the nastiest message she wanted (it still makes her a child doing that though) but by going beyond that really she should be arrested, If a man had did that sort of thing to a woman he would be in serious trouble. This is clearly harrassment on her half. NEVER an excuse to call someones place of employment over a romanitic issue, that has finacial impact she should be liable for any loss of income he sustains.

            • A girl sends her would-be boyfriend some racy lingerie shots. He then forwards this to messageboards, her employer, her parents and her pastor. She had it coming because he didn’t ask for the shots, amirite?

              • When did I say he had it coming? I said that it was a poor decision (idiotic) to send sex messages to a woman that you had been on all of two dates with.

            • No proof they were unsolicited . . and reported only AFTER he split with her . . evidence she consented, implicitly or otherwise . . .. Also, her complaint was not that they were unsolicited, but that they were sent on a government account. If you are not into IT, no marginal cost to emails sent after business.

        • Not to mention dumping days before the date that he planned with a text message and only when she didn’t agree to spend the whole weekend with him… the guy tried to play a game and got caught so he took the cowardly way out. It’s unfortunate that so few people see it.

    • “. “Sorry to be a downer” stinks of patriarchy, as if the rejection from a male is capable of destroy a woman’s passion for life.”

      LOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOLLOLOL

    • “Stinks of patriarchy?” Are you serious? If you construe that dude’s text as anything other than “it’s been nice but this isn’t going to work” you are as removed from reality as the “author” of this blog. Take that way-of-the-mark, unfocused ray of third-wave feminism back to whatever school sold it to you for 300k.

      • All Social Justice / Gender Studies types simply have no clue of how normal human social interaction functions, so say rubbish like this with complete sincerity.

    • Yeah, the strong feminists that need no man in their lives, lose their shit when they get dumped politely after two dates, because they thought that they would be forever with the guy. Yeah, the strong feminist who needs no man, tries to get him fired and the consequences of that, which are a daughter would get poor and hungry and maybe lose her father and her home, where totally known to her. So, the strong feminist tries to get a man fired because her ego was broken because she didn’t have the chance to dump him first. And then, her strong feminist friend actually approves her actions because she read his polite comment as “stinks of patriarchy (the abstract notion of men in the glass ceiling ruling the world, but fuck the glass bottom which is full of poor and homeless men because those do not suit our feminist agenda). How dare he brake up with you? But of course you are a strong and independent woman, you will not make a scene right? you are mature enough to accept the fact that all relationships (this was not even a relationship) end, just like everything else (even our lives)? I agree with your last comment though. “Maybe next time he’ll think twice before doing what he did”. Yeah, now the man will know to never date a feminist ever again.

    • Em, rejection from a male (or female) for either sex can indeed quite often be a downer, you psychopath. In fact, it was obviously a particularly extreme downer for this other psychopath you are defending.

    • Honestly, I’m a woman and I could see myself writing such a text. I don’t think he was condescending, he was just trying to be polite.

    • It wasn’t “condescending”. Nobody likes to be rejected. Should he have started his comment with “I don’t really care how you feel about this” or “no big deal, but…”

    • Are you insane?!? He owed her NOTHING. People go out, sometimes it doesn’t work out. You need to learn to handle rejection like an adult. Think Twice, Ugh Women like you guys give us all a bad name. You are not entitled to hurt someone because they didn’t feel a connection. Gross. You are Gross!

  15. you’re an absolutely terrible person. I don’t have the words to describe how little humanity you lack. You risked a guy’s ENTIRE LIFE. Why? because you got friend zoned? He obviously didn’t mean that much to you if you were meeting with a former lover while he was out of town. You’re a scumbag. Plain and simple.

    tl;dr fuck you cunt.

    It’s habbening, pol is coming

  16. LOL. Hold on a minute. Not only are your “memoirs” (written at the tender age of 24? 25?) self-published, which you conveniently omitted for obvious reasons, but they are adorned with obligatory “sexy” shots of yourself on the cover. LOL! Are you kidding me? How on earth are you so entitled? Have you looked in the mirror lately? Jesus Christ, no wonder you live in DC. You would get negative attention (as in less than zero) from anyone in New York City. Here is the brutal advice that no one has the courage to tell you in real life: lose 25-30 pounds (seriously), change your attitude completely (become sweet, deferential – someone a guy actually wants to spend time with, you horrible shrew) and marry the first pathetic, nerdy Asian-fetishistic white guy with a six figure income who doesn’t run away from you. As much as it’s not in society’s best interest for someone like you to procreate, you are the textbook example of a “self-empowered” dumb bitch who will regret not having had children in your 20s when you are alone and barren at 35. Please know that I am harsh because your blinders are likely on way too tight for an otherwise reasonable response to resonate with you. Best of luck, Quin.

    • After a quick google search of Peter Green, I come up empty handed. Unless, of course, you are Peter Allen Green(baum) of Fleetwood Mac, or the Australian gastroenterologist of NYC fame (great review on ucomparehealthcare.com). I only mention this because, after googling Quin Woodward Pu, I am flooded with information about her.

      You may not care about her life, her blog, her success – which by clicking and commenting on this article, you contributed to- but I am alarmed at how hostile you seem to be towards Quin for reacting to someone who treated her poorly. While she did post this personal interaction online, this man clearly made a series of poor decisions. If you don’t agree that talking about and/or sending pictures of your penis unsolicited on a tax-payer funded mobile device is a poor choice, I guess that’s your prerogative (talk about blinders being on too tight). Telling someone you don’t want to see them again after having “a great time”, and sending them pictures of your dick in the near past seems really seems confusing to me, though.

      The fact that you attack Quin for her personal appearance, lack of children at 26, and call her a dumb bitch (did you turn down Johns Hopkins?), clearly highlights your misogynistic tendencies. If a man wrote this about a woman, would you tell him to lose 25 pounds? FYI: women are not barren at 35. Don’t worry – Quin already knows this, as she put herself through Vanderbilt in part by teaching MCAT classes. As for the sentence where you advise Quin to become sweet and deferential, there are no words.

      You also seem racist, for example, when you suggest that only someone into asian women would want to marry her, which is eerily devoid of any modernity, tact or common sense- this is a public forum, Peter. Similarly, you must have missed the part of Quin’s life when she was half caucasian, as in one of her parents is, you know, white.

      If you think Quin is entitled, fine. Her parents cut her off when she chose not to become a doctor and she made her own way. Feel free to ask her about it… or just read about in either of her books.

      Also, while your at it, ask her about the time her blog got so many hits after a certain article went up, the advertising revenue paid her mortgage that month.

      Best of luck, Peter.

      • Hi Quin,

        Interesting definition of “success” from someone who, quite transparently, lacks any sense of identity, is a single girl yearning and unsuccessfully gunning for male companionship in DC (ha!), and forcefully, and poorly, attempts to cultivate a quasi-cosmopolitan persona, thinly veiled over the real you: a self-aggrandizing, legitimately clueless, directionless, mediocre “writer” who exhibits such obliviousness, who is so disengaged from objective reality, that you make your equally aloof and self-entitled millennial peers look like the Greatest Generation.

        It is irrelevant that someone else should have made the horrible decision to text you pictures of his cock. You are no less guilty of errors in digital judgment by loudly letting the world know you are the kind of girl who deserves to be treated with that little respect.

        Your ignorance is further highlighted by your attempt at drawing a correlation between one’s actual intelligence and rote memorization + their ability to diligently follow orders. That you think admission to JHUSOM precludes any contention of your legitimate stupidity (yes, you really are a dumb bitch, Quin) is fittingly prescient on your end.

        Otherwise, I am happy that you might make a few hundred extra bucks from ad revenue this month. You should use those pennies to pay interest on the mortgage to the bank which owns your condo.

        So again, my dear, I wish you the best of luck.

      • WOW! Just when I thought this could not get any better. And then you come and try to defend your self under an alias because you are too stupid or scared to face it yourself. I’m loving following your pathetic blog and story. This certainly has undertones of ” Amy’s Baking company ” fiasco. Im just going to watch you slowly ruin what little you have accomplished.

      • Yeah, the strong feminists that need no man in their lives, lose their shit when they get dumped politely after two dates, because they thought that they would be forever with the guy. Yeah, the strong feminist who needs no man, tries to get him fired and the consequences of that, which are a daughter would get poor and hungry and maybe lose her father and her home, where totally known to her.

How dare he brake up with you? But of course you are a strong and independent woman, you will not make a scene right? you are mature enough to accept the fact that all relationships (this was not even a relationship) end, just like everything else (even our lives)? Grow the hell up, get back to reality, read a book on psychology and social interaction and check your brain for a mental disorder. Then come back as a human being and see how stupid you look for defending a bad, vengeful person, who can’t be mature enough to accept that the man was being polite and sincere and tried to cut this off before emotions got involved.

      • @will
        “hostile you seem to be towards Quin for reacting to someone who treated her poorly.”
        are you deranged or not read the messages?
        Quin tried to ruin a mans livelyhood and destroy a child life, because she got politley advised that they guys she’d seen twice wasn’t that into her. He treated her Exceptionally well If he was aware that she was even 1 fifth the Bitch this blog proves her to be. Seriosuly how did he treat ‘poorly’? by what stretch of the imagination did he treat her poorly? he honestly advised her amongst a bunch of compilments (obviously he tried to be nice) that he was not interested in a romatic relationship. That is not Poorly that is Nicely, that he didn’t like her is just life, people are allowed to not be in love with someone. Ever think maybe he googled her?
        So Will what would you have done, how would you break up with a girl you meet while drunk taken on 2nd date to realise is really ugly and has a awful personality and you don’t want to have a romantic relationship with?

      • maybe he sent the text on the birthday (and risk seeming like and asshole) so she would feel free to flirt with other guys?
        maybe he was being super considerate.

        oh btw i did a quick search on google for “Will” and unless you’re a legal document you do not exist, because EVERYONE can be found on google straight away, right?! you freaking kidding me there’s probably like a million Peter Green’s in the world, this one maybe doesn’t own a condo and hasn’t published TWO books, but i guess you have your PROOF that he’s fake? stupid.

        google Quin Woodward Pu in a couple of days and you will be ‘flooded’ with info about how she’s the most hated person on the internet.

      • Quin did not “put herself through Vanderbilt” or get admitted to Johns Hopkins Medical School. She is completely full of shitm and always has been.

  17. Maybe he could have waited until after your birthday/birthday party to tell you, but in this day and age, considering how busy so many people’s lives are, two weeks notice on a cancelled trip should be appreciated. When he said he wasn’t looking for a relationship and combined it with compliments about you, it’s clear that he sees you as relationship material. It’s a compliment. He’s just not ready. He was forthright and honest. Sure, timing could have been better, but you have an entire work week to get over it before your glamours 125 person birthday party. Putting him on blast on the internet is an indication that maybe you’re not capable of dealing with the dating scene and really should just stay single.

  18. I’m really embarrassed for you. You might think this makes you look good, but it doesn’t. It makes you look insecure and desperate and a bit of a psychopath and what you did to that guy makes you nothing short of a complete cunt. Now I know, the first thing that should be asked on a date is; “are you a feminist?”, because if the answer is “yes” then they’ve basically admitted to being a cold blooded, psychotic bitch.

  19. FYI, she has a room in her english basement which is plastered with photos of Republican politicians who she idolizes, complete with a big photo of Dick Cheney.

    • She sounds like an insufferable liberal cunt to me. Plus, she lives in DC (the only place Gallup has ever reported that there are more self-described liberals than conservatives). She probably walks in gay parades, drives a Prius, eats organic, and rails against corporations in her “deep” conversations with friends at her local Starbucks.

          • Yeah bro… This is a conservative. Not a liberal. Your denial is like seeing a banana in front of you and declaring “maybe it’s a banana BUT IT HAS THE HEART OF AN APPLE”

            I think there are batshit crazy people on both sides. It’s ok to admit this to yourself, it is good critical thinking. best of luck in coming to terms with the idea there are assholes in every party, Wally!

      • Oh yea, because it’s great to eat food laced with chemicals and hormones in it. I don’t drive a Prius or eat ALL organic and don’t describe myself as a liberal but I do support things that are right like supporting gay, religious, political rights, not eating hormone or chemical laced foods, or putting more exhaust into the atmosphere. You couldn’t even get her political leanings right. What a joke you are. Stick to the facts. And what’s wrong with supporting gay rights you bigot? You don’t think they should be proud of who they are? Maybe they should hide in a dark corner and be ashamed of themselves like you do? Wow, you sure are telling on yourself aren’t you? People like you a)don’t need to be commenting on things you have no idea about, and b) mind your own business.

  20. Two dates and you’re furious that he sent you an “it’s not you, it’s me” text. Seriously, woman? You’re lucky he even had the common courtesy to do that. Most of us would have just stopped answering the phone. Hell, I’d probably change my number, seeing how unhinged you are.

  21. wow. what an absurdly histrionic reaction to gentle honesty. rants like the one you sent that man, exemplify everything that is wrong with people today, and what projection! your response clearly indicates how self-aggrandizing you are, not the other way around. ‘ah bloo bloo bloo, i have two books published, how could anyone not want me!?’, ‘ah bloo bloo, i was rejected after a couple of casual dates, time to try and ruin someone’s life’. what vindictive trash you are.

  22. WOW! I am a female, altho older both physically and otherwise. I have daughters your age and would be completely ashamed if they behaved this way. There is a way to have respect and genuine love from the opposite sex and honey, thats not it. You do sound insecure, vindictive and mentally challenged to go to that extreme. The text you received was mature in its nature and yours was not. It seems like you are offended he wanted more than what you have to offer. Learn about yourself and get off your pedestal. Real princesses dont act that way, you are way too full of yourself. No wonder the men of this generation are confused.

  23. Solid 2/10 on looks department on top of being sadistic and cold.

    It’s going to be hard to get a guy to date someone as fat as you to begin with, but with that personality, you might just want to leave the dating scene all together.

  24. I’m guessing it was the second part of his message which irritated you, since it seemed to imply you were weak and in need of encouragement after getting dropped. To be honest he was probably just trying to be nice, but crossed into condescending. Your response was disproportionately defensive and vindictive though, and seemed to be very ego driven, so maybe just think twice about where a response is coming from before letting it loose on someone.

  25. The criterion of scholarly inquiry is not whether it is of “help” to someone. Publicizing potentially embarrassing, unhinged text screeds is of “help” to lots of people, but it is not scholarship; and the prole Irish novelist James Joyce was of “help” to the modernist avant garde of the 20th century (he basically defined it), though I’m quite sure his Ulysses is unintelligible to most Vanderbilt grads. The criterion of scholarly inquiry is whether it makes a contribution to knowledge and understanding, not whether it “helps.” Of course, we know from history that genuine knowledge often helps with a host of practical and concrete problems, but it is the central premise of any reflection on the first 26 years of our lives that the measure of our achievement is the quality of our scholarship, i.e., its contribution to knowledge–whether of law or biology or literature–not its practical pay-off in the short-term. American women, including many women in the District of Columbia, have an extraordinary track record on this score. That we need more diversification of missions among American women shouldn’t obscure these facts central to the mission of echo chamber DC millenialista blogs.

  26. in a few days, she’ll find out how horrible she made herself look with this blog, that she’ll probably either
    a)take it down
    b)disable all comments
    c)drink bleach *suicide due to cyber ‘bullying’ *
    d)apologize for her childish behavior

  27. Wow. You are completely psychotic and full of yourself. I feel sorry for any man who has had to deal with you for anything more than a quick “Hello” in passing. Due the world a favor and seek professional help immediately.

  28. So i just saw a picture of the author Quin Woodward Pu

    shedding a few pounds would probably help with the future rejection

    just sayin. it would go great with your stellar personality

  29. Ha, you have got to be kidding me with your reaction. Face it honey, you’re an overweight 6 at best…you should probably work on that personality since you’re clearly not getting a guy on looks alone. He probably only went out with you in the first place because all guys know fat chicks love to…you know the rest

  30. wow. you need to get over yourself. you sound immature. dude politely doesn;t want to be involved and you freeak out with a super defensive text and then blog about it. not to mention you sare being spiteful and targeting his work? are you 12? you sound immature, defensive, insecure, and vindictive.

  31. As a fellow woman in her mid-twenties, I have to say that I am embarrassed for my gender by what you have done. How are we ever supposed to move up in this world and gain respect when women like you continue reinforcing the stereotype that we’re all irrational, immature, and spiteful? This man was nothing but kind to you. He could have used you, lead you on, and hurt you but he didn’t. And your response was to do this to him? Possibly get him fired when he has a child to care for? You’re not just immature, you’re just a flat out bad person. I would encourage you to apologize and do whatever you can to help him keep his job.

      • Whether it was actually threatened is not germane to the conversation. The point is that she actively tried to threaten his job. That’s a terrible and immature thing to do to anyone, let alone some seemingly-polite guy who let her down gently. Normally I would ask if there was more to the story, but this is all from her side, so…

  32. pretty huge overreaction to a rejection text, I don’t understand the level of vitriol, you might have an anger problem. also wow the amount of vanity! mentioning how good you are at everything, how many friends you have, dropping that you are a writer several times, that you were recently interviewed etcetera, you come off very obnoxious.

  33. Personally, I prefer honestly and openness to the gradual fade out or radio silence, but hey, that’s me. While I think that Quin grossly overreacted to a honest and pretty gentle letdown, there’s a way to express your differing opinion without resorting to name-calling and comments on her appearance. That kind of vitriol is counter-intuitive to being persuasive, or even a decent human being.

  34. You are ugly and fat as sin. Please kill yourself as there is no value to your life being such an ugly woman. Worthless. That guy is just smart and was probably on a desperation binge and not thinking clearly at all the 20 hours he spent with you.

  35. THE NDT IS THAT FEELING YOU GET WHEN A BROWNIE DROPS DONG LIKE KING KONG ON YOUR GROOVE JUNGLE AKA ANUS, MANDINGO CHILLS TO THE SIDE WITH THE SWANG DIP SWANG DIP SWANG DIP, A BULGE BOMB TO YOUR SHIT TRENCH AKA BROWN EYE. LEX CHILLS IN THE BACK WITH THE TSKA TSKA TSKA, A MEAT MISSLE SET ON B’COCK, AND BARBS BRINGS IT ALL BACK HOME WITH THE DEEDLE DE DEE DEEDLE DE DEE IN HIS BALLOON KNOT, A PENORIFIC DICKDOWN, HIDDEN IN THE ASS PASTURE, BLOWING OPEN YOUR CHOCOLATE STARFISH, THAT IS THE NDT.

  36. This chick is clearly out of her mind. It took 2 dates, 20 hrs for this dude to put the crazy tag on her and got the fock out. Job well done. Chick has serious mental issues.

  37. i’m guessing her parents threw her away when they realized how ugly and out of sync her eyes were. thus she has daddy issues that translate to being single at 26 and still getting mad when she gets dumped.

  38. Wow. You’re completely insane.

    There was absolutely nothing wrong about his carefully worded rejection. I think the person suffering from insane amounts of insecurity is you. But then you already knew that didn’t you? Pathetic you would try to ruin someones life just to sedate your own lust for attention. People like you make me sick.

  39. disgustingly obese fatasses having confident moments in their basement computer room and getting the courage to post “glamour shots” showing skin is easily the worst part of the internet. this girl is prime example.

    • olly Mahoney (Natalie Portman), called Mahoney throughout the movie, is an employee at “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium”, a magical toy shop run by the eccentric 243 year old Mr. Edward Magorium (Dustin Hoffman). Besides Molly and Mr. Magorium, store bookbuilder Bellini (Ted Ludzik), a strongman, is also employed. Eric Applebaum (Zach Mills) is a boy who comes to the toy store and regularly interacts with the adults and volunteers at the store, acting at times like a part-time employee.
      The toy shop is magical. The toys have a life of their own. An over-sized ledger, known as the Big Book, can magically materialize any toy on command, and a doorknob, when rotated, can change the interior of a magic room. Mr. Magorium states that he imbued the shop with the same youthful characteristics of the children who visit it. Because of its similarity to children, the shop is also prone to temper tantrums.
      In response to Mahoney telling Mr. Magorium that she feels stuck, he gives her the Congreve Cube, a big block of wood, and tells her it will guide her to a new life and adventure if she has faith in it. She is unsure what to do with the cube at first. Mahoney wants to become a composer and concert pianist, because she was a musical child prodigy. She went to school for music, but has not been able to write any music since graduating. At home, she works on a concerto with little progress.
      Mr. Magorium suddenly announces that he intends to “leave” and is giving the shop to Mahoney to provide her with the means to move forward and become “unstuck” in life. When Mahoney expresses her upset and doubts about her ability to run the store, the store throws a tantrum, causing all the toys and its inner workings to go haywire, ambushing customers of all ages. In preparation for his departure, Mr. Magorium hires an accountant, Henry Weston (Jason Bateman), to organize the shop’s paperwork and determine the monetary value of the store he will leave as a legacy to Mahoney. Henry does not believe that the toy store is magical at all at first, arguing with Molly over its magical properties and debating the actuality of Magorium’s records.
      Mahoney finally realizes that Mr. Magorium is leaving not to retire but because he is going to die. Desperate to stop this, Mahoney rushes him to a mental hospital where after a little mischief, he is discharged the next day because there is “nothing physically wrong with him.”
      After leaving the hospital, Mr. Magorium asks Mahoney how she is doing with the Congreve Cube. She states there are a million things she could do with a block of wood but she doesn’t have a clue how to unlock the cube’s secret. Mr. Magorium then tells her that there are a million things one could do with a block of wood, but what if someone just believed in the cube? Mahoney does not understand but attempts to prevent Mr. Magorium’s departure by showing him the joys of life, but he has lived a full life and it is time for his story to end. He uses the stage notes of Shakespeare’s King Lear to make the point about the importance of having a full life, and the importance of death, noting that the last lines of one of the most important pieces of literature are simply “He dies.” Mahoney, Eric and all the children have a funeral for him.
      Believing herself to be unworthy and incapable of owning a magical store, Mahoney puts it up for sale with Henry’s firm overseeing the sale. The store grieves and loses its magic. All the toys, walls, and even the furniture lose their color, becoming varying shades of gray and black. Eric tries to reason with Mahoney over her decision to sell the store when he sees her at a restaurant playing background music.
      Henry meets Mahoney at the store to draw up the sale papers, where he sees the Congreve Cube and asks her about it. When Mahoney confesses her complete faith in the store and the Congreve Cube’s magical ability, the block suddenly springs to life, and proceeds to fly around the store. After witnessing this, Henry faints with shock. When he later awakes and questions Mahoney about it, she tells him that it must have been a dream as she went home the previous night, leaving him to finalize the paperwork for the sale.
      Henry is not deterred as he knows Molly made the cube fly and though she does not believe she can do magical and wonderful things, he believes in her. Henry realizes Mahoney is the Congreve Cube. The block of wood that can be anything she desires if she can somehow believe in herself. Henry’s whole hearted belief in Mahoney ignites a tiny spark in her and for a second she believes. The store responds to her spark of belief and continues to respond as her confidence builds until the entire store magnificently transforms.

  40. You need a certain amount of wealth, but basically you have this limited time span 16-60 where you can truly enjoy life. Prime years are 18-40, then we all grow old and eventually die. Striving is pointless if it involves spending 60+ hours a week so you can drive a slightly more luxurious car than your peers. Seriously fuck this shit, give me 80k and enough free time to do some hobbies and I’m good.

  41. I really wish that those bombs we dropped on your people seventy years ago wiped all all of you slopes. You’re an awful excuse for a human. I can’t wait to see you around DC again and point your miserable ass out to all my friends.

  42. I can’t decide what’s more disgusting:

    The self-congratulatory, privately self-esteem-less, self-proclaimed “maturer-than-thou” girl who reacted with such unwarranted bile and vengeance towards a guy who, by her own admission, really owes her nothing in terms of their “relationship”– to the point of (at the very least) threatening to ruin his career and life and even dragging his 9 year old girl (who she doubtlessly has never even met) through the mud– when his only crime was honesty with a complimentary tone.

    Or:

    Said immature nutbar’s “loyal readers” (who I’m guessing are either her real life friends or people with similar maturity issues) who congratulate and encourage this behavior.

    The author comes across as a scorned teenager, lashing out because she has yet to learn how to handle disappointment with dignity and maturity. You sound like your personal embarrassment at the perceived uncommon occurrence of rejection flipped a borderline unstable personality disorder within. If you truly weren’t thinking seriously about this “relationship,” as your casual language in the first paragraphs suggests, you would not have been so over the top with your response. I think you need to take a long, hard look at your behavior– and follow it up with a big time apology (as if that would come close to repairing the damage, if you did in fact actually bring his work/life into play here).

    This is not an example of the assertion of “independence” or “empowerment,” it is an insanely hostile and improper response to a *perceived* slight– that was, in reality, nothing short of polite, courteous, and thoughtful.

  43. YOU GO GIRL!!!!

    He rejected you in the kindest way I’ve ever seen. Probably because he caught on to how insane you are and feared for his life. Your response most likely proved his suspicions to be correct.

    Seek help, they have a wide array of treatments to deal with all types of personality disorders.

  44. I’ve read reports she also used an assault style keyboard to post this offensive drivel.

  45. I had secretly fantasized about getting charged up. I’m a bareback bottom , love to get fucked, and having a guy breed my hole. The idea of having a hot guy fuck me and blow his dirty seed in all in my ass had inspired many spank marathons. I’m sure that I have taken a poz load before not knowing the status of whoever was fucking me or really even caring for that matter. I had never knowingly let a guy that was poz fuck me. One night I was cruising all the slut sites looking for other bareback guys to play with when this really hot guy messaged me. He said that he had read in my profile that I liked to go bare and that I was a btm. He told me that he was looking 4 a hole to use 4 the evening. That got my attention I had never been submissive and must admit it had been another fantasy of mine to completely give up control. He asked me if I was into pnp and I told him that I do party sometimes. We chatted 4 a little while with the standard Q&A, u know how big, what position, where to cum. Then I asked poz/neg? He responded with poz. I told him that I was neg. To which he responded “u want to get a charged load n u tonight?” I was shocked and very turned on, I asked him if he fucked neg guys bareback. He told me he did all the time and that he even hosted several conversion party’s. I wasn’t familiar with the term, he explained that a conversion party’s was were a group of poz tops get together and breed a neg guy. The soul reason 4 this was to spread dirty seed, and infect the neg btm. Before I could answer he asked me if I liked to pnp. I told him that I did, but I didn’t have any party supplies. He said that if I wanted I could come over to his place and get ass fucked and get high. He asked me if I had ever slammed, I told him that I had been slammed before but I was terrified of needles. “I’m very good at slamming others” he returned. Should I go? The thought of getting slammed and pounded was so tempting but was I ready to take that step towards becoming poz? “I might ass well” I responded. He gave me directions and I was on my way. When I got to his house we sat and talked 4 a while. He told me that he was going to enjoy planting his dirty seed in me, then asked me if I liked groups. I told him yes and he said good that he would get us slammed then have a few of his top buddies stop by and load my ass. He told me that I was going be a cum dump 4 him and his friends. I asked him if the guys were poz or neg he told me that they were poz. This made my dick begin to grow. He got the slamm ready and did me first. When he released the belt on my arm I could feel the rush hit me instantly. Then came the cough. I could feel that it was a very strong slamm. He did himself and sat down on the bed next to me. I started sucking his dick while I was taking off my clothes. He stood up bent me over the side of the bed, lubed my hole up with some elbow grease that was laying on the bed, and shoved his dick all the way in. Normally this would have brought tears to my eyes and a fist to his face, but it didn’t even really hurt, I guess I was so high that I couldn’t feel it. It wasn’t long before he started to pound really hard and said he was about to cum. He stopped and pulled out and made me tell him that I wanted hid seed. Which I told him. He managed to get his dick back inside me, and with a few hard thrust he unloaded in my hole. He walked out of the room and told me to stay put. When he returned he had a collar and some restraints, which he fastened on my wrist, ankles, and neck. Then I followed him into another room, it was a play room, with a sling, TV playing porn, fuck bench, some toys and lube and a computer set up with a web cam. He helped me into the sling and hooked the restraints to the chain supports. Then started to cruise the sex sites 4 tops to come and try out my hole. In no time 15 or 20 mins. there was 3 guys in line to blow their load in tight hole, and 5 more on the way. I realized that I had just came to this guys house let him drop a charged load n me and now was going to be a cum dump 4 who ever he wants and I hadn’t even gotten his name. He walked over to the sling and let me know that the web cam was on and I was going to be used all weekend. There must have been 10 or more guys that had charged my ass with dirty seed before the slamm started to fade away. He could tell that I was beginning to come down and he mixed up a booty bump and told me to get on the floor face down with my ass in the air, as he unlocked the restraints. Once I was on the floor he inserted the booty bump and told me to squeeze my ass tight so that the booty bump and all the spunk wouldn’t drip out. As I started to feel my stomach cramp up from the booty bump he dressed me and told me that we were going to the baths and that I was going to take all loads. He rented one of the sling rooms and told me to get into the sling as he mixed up another booty bump. I secured the restraints myself , all but one arm. He came over secured the last arm and started to insert another booty bump. I told him that I was ok 4 now. To this he responded by placing a ball gag n my mouth and continued with my booty bump. It had only been about 20 mins since the last one. Now I was so high that I couldn’t focus my see straight. He began to fuck me again, telling my how sloppy my hole was and that when he had fucked me the first time that he had ripped me. He said that he knew because when he pulled out there was blood all over his dick. He said that was a good thing, it would make it easier to ensure that my neg status was gone for good. Then he told me that he had used the point 4 my slam and that when he slammed me there was still a good bit of his poison blood in it, and now it was running thru my veins. He must have been fucking me 4 at least an hour, not that I was complaining. My ass was so hungry from the booty bumps that the only thing I could think about was getting more dick. He shot another death load in me then opened the door and walked away. It was a few mins before the first guy walked in and began to get his dick hard so that he could fuck me. He was a much older man probably 55 or 60 but he had a huge cock. He came after about 5 mins of fucking wiped his dick off and left. I didn’t realize that there was a group of 4 guys waiting, they took turns one after the other all loading my eager ass. A while later my friend returned, closed the door and mixed up a huge booty bump. He squeezed it into my hole and for good measure he pushed a large rock of meth up my ass with his finger. He massaged it until it was completely dissolved. Then he removed the ball gag and asked me how I was doing. I was so high I couldn’t hardly answer but I managed to say that I was feeling a little dizzy and hot. He gave me a bottle of water and told me to drink it all as he unlocked the restraints. I drank the water and instantly began to feel better. He said that he had to leave to do something but that he would be back. Then he told me that he had left a message on the all the dry erase boards saying there was a “eager ass in the sling room taking all loads POZ IS A PLUS” as he left. I knew that I should probably get up and leave but the meth was starting to take effect. So I waited. It wasn’t long before a line began to form, I eagerly took every load that was offered. I’m not sure how long I was there in the sling room or how many guys filled my hole with their juice. When I finally started to come down from the meth climbed out of the sling, put on my clothes, and left the bath house. I felt so trashy when I walked into the day light, like everyone knew what I had just done. Not to mention that there was a wet place on the ass of my jeans where some of the spunk had slipped out of my now opened hole. It has been a few months since that happened so I’m not sure what my status is but I did feel like I had the flu about 2 or 3 weeks after it happened.

  46. So, no one can see what exactly he sent her in the first place and how bad it really…and we just attack her with racism and shaming to the point of telling her to kill herself? She deserves to die for losing her temper via text? Really? 90% of all gossip is all about some girl overreacting to something some douchebag did. This is no different.

      • “She” (meaning, you) thought it over carefully for 10 hours before acting–that’s not “losing your temper.” Also, it wasn’t just over text–you didn’t text it to his employer.

    • actually we can see exactly what he said to her… did you even read the blog?

      he was really nice in the way he rejected her. only an insane person would react like she did.

  47. lol, im a juggalo with a damn good life. not my fault you hate yourselves so much you feel the need to internet troll like little bitches. lol, last person who said shit like this to me in person ended up in the hospital. so quit your pussy ass talkin shit over the internet n say shit to my face. or any real juggalo for that matter. we’ll teach you some respect.

  48. I’m an Aplha male.

    And girls want to fuck alpha males. Let it piss you off as much as you want, but you know it’s completely true. That girl you like who is kinda cute in a weird way, but is totally sweet and you have the biggest crush on? The one who keeps going back to guys who treat her wrong for reasnos you don’t understand? The one who calls you up at 1 am to cry about how her boyfriend hasn’t called her in 3 days, and no matter how long you listen to her, she’ll never think of you as anything other than asexual? The one who will curl up next to you on the couch, hug you close, kiss you on the cheek, and never let you fucking touch her beyond that?

    Yeah, I’m fucking her.

    The hot girl who won’t even look at you when you nod at them and smile? The one who laughs when you trip in the hallway and drop your stuff? The one who comes up and coyly aks for your help with her homework, and then pretends you don’t exist once you finish?

    Yeah, I’m fucking her too, even harder.

    The geeky girl you think might be enough like you that you have a chance with her? She plays warcraft on your server, and watches anime, and reads comics? She’s so incredible and you just love her so much but you still haven’t worked up the courage to tell her how you feel about her?

    Guess who just sucked me off and told me they’ll always love me?

    And what’s more? I laugh at guys like you. When you cry about how much girls treat you bad, and wonder why they can’t just see that you’re a nice guy who would always treat them right? I nod and tell you to hang in there, you’ll find someone right for you someday, don’t give up hope man. But inside? I’m laughing my ass off at you you pathetic fuck. Every girl you set your sights on, who isn’t a disgusting pig-monster, I’m going to fuck 6 ways from sunday before you even tell her you think she’s cute. I won’t bother trying when you finally settle for that 350 pound girl who works at hardees, you can have that. Anything else I’m going to cum on her face before you get those lips near it.

    And the biggest reason I laugh? It’s not me doing all this. It’s the girls. When you cry about how lonely you are? Or talk about how you just want to curl up and dissapear, and all that emo bullshit? You’re triggering her “Don’t Fuck” instinct something feirce. You’re a miserable weak coward, why would she want your genes? Feel free to buy her a new computer and help her decorate her apartment, you’re great for that. But her baby-maker is barking orders at her, telling her to wrap her legs around me and hold on for as long as she can. She needs it, on a primal level you’ll never get to see first hand, even if you do get a chance to fuck her. Sooner or later one of them will lay back and spread their legs, but you won’t see any hunger in their eyes. They won’t beg you to love them forever and make them yours. You won’t know what it’s like to see her animal side needing you as much as she needs to eat and breath.

    And she’s cheating on you, I promise that. When she sits around quiet and uncomfortable, acting irritable and irrational towards you, wanting you to just back away and leave her alone, it’s not her period. It’s because I haven’t called her for a day or two and her instincts are telling her to go find me. The primitive section of her brain doesn’t want to risk smelling like another man when she gives herself to me, she wants me to know she’s completely mine. We do things together she tells you she never would. Her pooper? Mine. I want to give her a facial? of course. I want her to suck the cum out of my dick, even though I just finished pumping away at her ass? she’s never going to tell me no. She doesn’t WNAT to tell me no. She wants me to know she’ll do anything it takes to keep me. She’ll rim my ass while she’s down there sucking me off if it means pleasing me. She’ll drink my cum from a shotglass. She’ll wear a buttplug when we go out to dinner. She’ll sleep handcuffed to my headboard. Anything.

    And then she’ll go home to you and tell you she’s not in the mood today.

    I’d say you should become an hero, but you being aruond makes her want a real man all the more, so keep fagging it up emo bitches, I’ll keep that pussy warm while you’re crying in the corner.

  49. Im 21 I know more than everyone else, I’m invincible, I drink 12 jäger bombs at the bar, go beast mode and hit on your girlfriend, you know she wants me, so I’ll fight you faggot, just to impress her, I rock the flatbrim, phillies camouflage, two ears pierced with hetty plugs, working on skeeve’in my right arm, got the half on the left arm, work, I got plenty of cash flow, love slanging beasties to my highschool friends, slack half eighths all day for $30, pinch a little more off for my personal, my girlfriends only sixteen but its all good, her mom lets me sleep over in her 2 bedroom apartment, she’s cool, not even like her mom, more like a friend and she buys the booze, I love rolling in my Pontiac sun fire, even got a nickname, fire shard, god I love being 21, got life all figured out, sorry took you faggots 30 years to figure it out, rent and tax free for lyphe, I wouldn’t change for the world, where’s my dutch master, time twist a phatty

  50. Here’s the thing.
    I’ve been fucking the hell out of my neighbor’s wife for the past two years. He has no idea, and I’d prefer to keep it that way. He’s crazy as hell, and could very well kill me if he ever found out. Certifiably crazy. How else could you explain why anyone would willingly marry a paraplegic struck down in her prime by spina bifida?

    When he leaves for work in the morning she wheels herself over to my garage, and I work her over like Rocky Balboa on a speedbag. I built a contraption out of some spare lumber (cedar fence) that allows me to penetrate her deeply without jeopardizing any sort of corticospinal impact. The cedar smells great too.

    Well, this lady, bless her heart, decided to pull a little prank on me last week. I had her hung upside down on my fresh cedar fuck pedestal, and was just absolutely pouring it to her when she starts to feign injury. For a full second or two I thought I had killed her, and started to worry about how I could successfully arrange it so it looked like a suicide.

    Then she starts laughing.

    So, being the good hearted man that I am, I decided to “return the favor.” Last night I broke into their house and stole her precious Merlexi Craft wheelchair. I left a note that reads, “You’ll not see it again until you make me a homemade blueberry pie.”

    That’s right.
    I’m holding her wheelchair hostage.

    The only problem is that I have no idea how she’s going to get around the kitchen.

  51. Caught that movie, Warhorse, on netflix last week. At first it was a little slow, but before long I was bawling like a school girl who was just raped by a clown and was banging my head repeatedly against the led screen.

    The intensity/flashing lights in some of the battle scenes must have induced some sort of epileptic fit. I regained consciousness perhaps ten hours later. Part of my tongue was missing from where I bit it off. More disturbing, however, was that I appeared to have decapitated my pet bulldog and fashioned his head into a hat of sorts.

    Unfortunately, the sight of all the blood reminded me of warhorse and I started bawling uncontrollably and ripped the led screen off the wall before dropping into another epileptic fit. A week later and I’m starting to feel more like myself.

    Excellent film BTW, a definite must watch.

  52. Just watched War Horse with the family for Christmas. We have been sobbing, hugging, crying, drooling with sheer emotion for the last four hours. My father is just staring at his hands weeping like a little girl. My mother is fainted. My brother is cackling in excitement at the battle scenes.

  53. Gave the eulogy for my grandfather Sid’s funeral last year. Without a doubt the hardest thing I’ve had to do in my entire life. Bawled hysterically the entire time and could barely pronounce the words on the page in front of me. Afterwards, my entire family thanked me for being so brave and courageously letting my emotions out. Strangers came up to me and shook my hand. Sid would be so proud.

    The tears weren’t for my grandfather. What I’ve never told anyone to this day is that I’d seen War Horse the night before in my room at the Red Roof Inn.

  54. Look, I know I have a weight problem. That’s not news to, I’m reminded every time I look in the goddamn mirror so shut the hell up about it!

  55. Typical Self absorbed, type A, millenial, socialite, attention seeking, insecure cunt. You will never be happy. You will get uglier and fatter as the years go by and even your unloving children will turn against you when your ex husband decides to leave you for a younger and **GASP** nicer person. I hate people like you.

  56. The day before seeing Warhorse I became married to a beautiful and sweet girl named Ella who came from a broken home in Mississippi and grew up perpetually barefoot, but who was kind as kind can be, and for our honeymoon we rented a cozy little cabin in the mountains and rented War Horse and I guess it was about halfway into it that I began to feel funny, and shortly after that I was heaving violently and shedding unstoppable tears and she was bent over me rubbing my back asking what was wrong and then about a half hour later I woke up on the floor after blacking out and Ella was dead, stabbed clean through the neck with a fireplace poker and lying in a pool of her own blood. Just bought the movie on iTunes today.

  57. I just want a hot girl from this board to fuck the shit out of me, or I can fuck the shit out of her, either way. We can probably do both.

    I want to be able to dominate, yet I like being submissive as well.

    I think we should start off where you dominate me for a while, then I dominate you, then we switch back for a bit, and then it will be a mystery when I cum.

    When I cum I will either be in the dominant or submissive role, it’s up in the air.

    I just need someone, preferably a cute to hot girl who likes Phish and his fairly big tits.

  58. Dear Miss Pu,

    I would like to cordially invite you to get up in here and tell your side of the story, on a little place called Phantasy Tour, at the GREEN BOARD. Some people have doubts that you actually committed such an egregious display of fuckwittery and are accusing you of fabricating this whole sequence of events. Others just think you’re an irredeemably narcissistic psychopath. We’d like you to weigh in on the issue and clear some things up for us.

    Sincerely,
    Kayisa Dainauf

  59. oh god, i shudder, as a woman i shudder.

    for every one woman that takes three steps forward girls like you take us 300 steps back.

  60. I never saw Warhorse but I damn sure tried. Three times, I tried. Thrice death lunged, thrice I evaded. I don’t cry anymore when I think back. I do however regret sending dick pics to that unhinged celestial from my third go ’round. That caprice I would take back, could that I would. Could that I would, damn you Quin Woodward Pu! COULD THAT I WOULD!

  61. Trying to ruin his career because he rejected you (in a pretty innocuous message)? Not something good people do.

    Bragging about it? Makes you seem completely detached from both social norms and reality.

    Allowing the message to make you so upset (because he called you a girl?) that you had to leave an important rehearsal? Well, I think that means you’re overly sensitive and insecure.

  62. Choose Life. Choose a med school. Choose a near-ivy. Choose a blog name. Choose a philanthropy, choose heated floors, #maybach twitter tags, a gold iphone 5s and the kennedy center. Choose good mascara, non-GMO, and insured jewelry. Choose eastern market. Choose a starter condo. Choose your society rag. Choose ball gowns and matching luggage. Choose birchbox and choose a youtube channel. Choose FOMO and texting new almost-acquaintances. Choose making small talk at gala after gala, celebrating nothing, stuffing salmon foam into your mouth at a tasteful pace. Choose moving to Chevy Chase at the end of it all, politicking your daughter’s way into Deerfield, nothing more than an embarrassment to the brawny titans of Rawls and Disraeli who made this decadent life possible. Choose your future. Choose life… But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin’ else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you’ve got scholarship?

  63. I can’t decide if you are stupid enough to have engineered and contrived this train wreck, in an effort to “publicize” your otherwise vacuous life, or if you truly are as shallow, bitchy and contemptuous as you sound. Either way, you have clearly won the title of this week’s biggest loser. Maybe you can console yourself–and your 125 close friends–by eating some more birthday cake, or you can just get a spatula, and apply it directly to your thighs, since that appears to be its destination under any circumstances.

    Maybe you and your weigh- watchers-group-meeting of a “staff,” can sit around and justify your infantile rant, and your childish response to events that just happen in life. You are such a catch, that after all of this exposure, you might be able to get a date again, in Afghanistan, as long as you are wearing a burqa. If this was a joke, it backfired; if it wasn’t, well then you are even dumber than I gave you credit for, and I gave you a lot of credit.

    You don’t need a filter. You need a brain to put a filter in.

  64. Wow…so sorry people are giving you such asinine comments. I feel like you did nothing wrong, he came off as such an asshole. I feel like a lot of butt hurt rejected men, who can’t handle how you gave a rebuttal, are the ones who are commenting on here and flooding your blog.

    Also, if I were you- I would message amazon about how people maybe reviewing your book and leaving false comments. Hope these assholes don’t damper your birthday!

  65. A gun rack. You bought me… a gun rack. I don’t have a gun, let alone many guns that would necessitate an entire rack. What am I going to do… with a gun rack?

  66. Seeing this post on Facebook from you in my feed intrigued me so I clicked through and read your story (and then unfriended you). We weren’t really friends anyway, more like the single serving kind when you meet someone once at a party and add them. Usually a lurker rather than poster I couldn’t help but come back after stewing on this for a bit to actually comment on it. The fact is this guy was honest with you and did so in a way that wasn’t harsh or insensitive. Responding the way you did through text, sending pics to his employers, and making this post clearly shows he got under your skin in a big way and points out real immaturity or some major insecurities (probably both). Yeah it stings to get rejected but anyone with real self-confidence would have blown it off. Checking out your site even further and looking at your book descriptions its apparent you’ve got some extreme narcism in your life. I hope with age you learn some class.

  67. What nerve, that guy sounds like a fool for turning down such a fine, rubenesque young lady as yourself. He obviously knows he doesn’t have the proper equipment for a strong healthy dime piece like yourself.

    Was he Asian? There’s no way you’re dating Asian guys. Gotta get yourself a man with the right mushroom tip for the job, and you know what I mean about that.

    I got something protein packed and paleo-approved for your pupu platter. East meets West Combo 69 right here for you.

  68. Move on. It was two dates. It’s hardly like it was official you guys were together. Better he told you now that it wasn’t working than years down the road. Making these texts public just makes you look pathetic.

  69. Everyone, allow me to use my hamster translator on this thing. Everything that’s being said is not quite what it appears.
    Translation marked by ****
    There are very few times I use this blog as a personal sounding board ***I always use this blog as my sounding board***.

    It’s now my 26th birthday, and despite my general distaste for “today I went to Whole Foods and then made a protein-packed paleo Pinterest-procured pizza” writer-driven life posts, this is just something I had to share, if only for other comfortably single women in their 20s. ***I feel that my birthday means I have some special privilege to do whatever I want……drivel about sounding board blog entries…I’m so bad at being rejected I want sympathy and want to hurt the man that did it any way possible*****

    It all started two weeks ago, when I met some rando at a bar. ***I’m a fat slob in a bar and I think words like “rando” are cool***

    He was friendly enough, but annoyingly and sloppily drunk, which is why I offered my email address when he asked for my number. ***He had on major beer googles, which I realized was my big chance to push my email on him***

    We emailed later that weekend, and I met up for a few drinks, which eventually turned to dinner, and then champagne. We had relatively good chemistry, but then, I kinda have chemistry with pretty much everyone, because I really like talking to people and winning over complete strangers. ***I emailed him my number the second he sent me a message and THAT NIGHT we met for drinks, and ordered nachos with everything on it at the bar (my fave!) before I could get him drunk enough to get over my fatness and invite me back to his place for champagne. I could tell he was drunk enough to want to have sex, since I’ve developed a 6th sense about how drunk guys need to be to want to fuck me, and I could tell that since I’ve “won over complete strangers” just like the people in the comments section of this very entry, It was on!****

    We had dinner the following weekend (as in, two days ago), and it was equally fun. I invited him to my birthday party, which I’m holding this weekend for my closest 125 friends. ***He stopped by my place for a quick booty call and when he was leaving after 30 minutes from his initial arrival, I made sure to tell him about my birthday party that only 12 people will actually turn out for (including my parents and cats)***

    He wouldn’t be in town, so he scheduled a weekend in Virginia wine country the following weekend. It seemed a bit much, but I agreed to a singular day trip. When we parted that day, I didn’t think much of anything. In fact, I actually headed out to a bar to meet up with a former lover from 2012, with whom I may or may not entertain a few exchanges here and there. #timesbeing. ***He blew me off with some half hearted excuse and made some vague reference to a winery I said I’d always wanted to go to. I was thrilled to think we would go! I went to the bar by myself after sending a mass text to the 6 guys that have pumped and dumped me in the past 12 months, none every respond but it’s worth a shot you know #timesbeing***

    So imagine my surprise–which quickly turned to fury–when I received the following text out of the blue yesterday. ***I completely lost my shit and started fretting and walking back and forth furiously for hours***

    FYI I have done absolutely no editing on this conversation; the previous dialogue is from Saturday night when he told me not to dress up (I haven’t dressed down since 2k5), and I jokingly asked if I shouldn’t wear my ball gown. ***I’m hoping everyone else can see all the things he implied rather than just taking things at face value, also he didn’t get my overthought joke about a gown and probably realized that might be a good time to break things off***

    I was stunned into paralysis. ***NOT AGAIN!!! I drover another one away!!!***

    I had no words–this never happens–and I just felt short of breath. ***Because I’m fat and a drunk slob, I tend to wheeze a lot anyway, but especially when I get rejected after I built up a whole life with this man in my mind***

    There were many things that pissed me off, but I was so flustered I couldn’t even articulate them. ***I’m an irrational person***

    Again, this is a serious problem for a writer and effusive communicator. ***I desperately want to be a writer and learn to communicate with people***

    I was still so agitated 10 hours later that I had to leave opera rehearsal early. ***It was actually 24 hours of sleepless tossing and turning and I just flaked on rehearsal***

    This is a serious no-no, given that opening night is Saturday at the Organization of American States. ***I do this a lot from being hungover and no one notices I’m not there anyway***

    Then I realized: I am on the eve of my 26th birthday. ***Waitaminute, Its my birthday! Mommy and Daddy told me I can have anything I want on my birthday!!!***

    Why am I stewing instead of just expressing what I really feel? ***I need a sounding board and because I’m hurting, someone ELSE MUST PAY***

    There is practically nothing to lose from just telling the truth. ***I keep telling myself this is the “truth”***

    So then it came. “And it came. And it came.” –(illicit tax-payer funded sext. Don’t worry, these have since been screenshotted to his superiors). ***I’m not sure how I feel about my over the top text, does it reek of insecurity? I hope my blog readers will make me feel better -(I sent a bunch of sext messages after our first night that he half heartedly responded to, I’d post them here but they make me look pathetic, I didn’t really send them to his employers)***

    Cheers to 26! And may I (and you, and your girlfriends, moms, grandmothers, daughters, etc.) never remain silent in the bombastic, outrageously chauvinistic face of an insecure man. *It’s my birthday! I can do whatever I want! And I’m hoping that other women are as fucked up as I am and will sympathize with me and tell me the lies I tell myself are true!***

    After all, only two months ago did a writer describe me as such when asked about my relationship status: “she blushes, giggling a bit. Translation: Ms. Woodward Pu is quite happy being single.” ***My imaginary friend is a writer and in this fantasy she wrote this about me***

    Damn straight. ***I’ve temporarily convinced myself that everyone will see things my way***

  70. Kill yourself, you annoying, self-righteous, egotistical, cynical, overweight, feministic, waste of food and space. Your life means nothing to anyone, and you wonder why.
    I am so happy for the man that got away. He dodged the bullet with you. Also, I HIGHLY doubt that his employers received your images.
    too long; didn’t read version (so your little mind can comprehend it) kill yourself you stupid cunt.

  71. You have issues. Any normal feminist would find this both stupid, amusing, and a terrible representation of feminist values. He wasn’t being a jerk. He wasn’t thinking you’d be sobbing your way into oblivion. He just thought it’d be nice for him to do that. You know that? Being nice to others? Pretty much one of the most important and frequently mentioned social values in modern society.

  72. It is amazing how the MALES (not men) on this post resorted to juvenile jabs and insults. VERY MATURE!!!! I wish we could go back to a time where men acted like men not pubecent teenage girls!.

    Bottom line he blew her off, and she let him know the world does not revolve around him and she was not picking her china pattern (That is part of the wedding planning ritual for you who are ignorant of that) based on two dates with him. Bravo to her and I hope her birthday celebration was a blast!

    • We could go back in time where men acted like men and not pubecent teenage girls? It’s happening right now from the text she recieved. Then Miss Poop got all stupid and came up with a flimsy excuse to justify her behaviour and posted athis. Either way, she is an idiot and so are you for supporting her

      • Nailed it Broseph! The guy acted like a gentleman, wrote a very nice text, complimented her, and she flipped out like a spoiled brat on her birthday. Quin is a nutjob and anyone who agrees with her is certifiable as well.

    • He blew her off in a very kind and gentle way. She didn’t have to even reply back to him and that would have been the end of it.

      But no, she gets him in trouble at work and goes on this long tirade about him. That’s being immature and selfish.

      • Even IF he thought that the world revolved around him, which, there is no proof for and considering he is raising a child alone, I highly DOUBT…

        What she said was the OPPOSITE of “showing him” You know what WOULD have “shown him”…a display of disregard. An “Okiedoke! Have a nice life. :)” Because he DOESN’T matter to her. Her tantrum however proved beyond a shadow of a doubt how much Quinny DID put him on a pedestal.

    • You will never be happy and find someone that loves you if you think that’s the right course of action to take.

      That’s why I’m gay master race. Women are far too emotional when it comes to decision making and anything else. I can’t stand 95% of them.

    • Bottom line is..she is reading into something that isn’t there. He was just honest and cray women seem to think that means he blew her off hahahahaaha SO IF HE DOESN’T GENUINELY LIKE HER HE SHOULD SHUT HIS MOUTH AND KEEP GOING ON DATES?????? ALL OF MY WHATTRTWEDATFASFa

        • No joke, that’s a Spanks figure.

          Spanks being “foundation” garments for women that more or less hug the body and give a girl a “slimmer” profile. The reality is it’s not at all hard to tell when a woman is wearing one; either in touching her on the waist or in a photograph. In almost all these photos, she’s wearing them.

          There’s no shame in wearing foundation garments, at all.

          …honestly.

    • Brown Betty wants to go back to a time where men acted like men, popping women in the jaw when they posted garbage like this post. Birthday party is this weekend, toots, and it’s just her closest 125 friends. Guess you weren’t invited.

    • Yeah, the strong feminists that need no man in their lives, lose their shit when they get dumped politely after two dates, because they thought that they would be forever with the guy. Yeah, the strong feminist who needs no man, tries to get him fired and the consequences of that, which are a daughter would get poor and hungry and maybe lose her father and her home, where totally known to her. So, the strong feminist tries to get a man fired because her ego was broken because she didn’t have the chance to dump him first. And then, her strong feminist friend actually approves her actions because she read his polite comment as “patriarchy (the abstract notion of men in the glass ceiling ruling the world, but fuck the glass bottom which is full of poor and homeless men because those do not suit our feminist agenda). How dare he brake up with you? But of course you are a strong and independent woman, you will not make a scene right? you are mature enough to accept the fact that all relationships (this was not even a relationship) end, just like everything else (even our lives)?

      • FYI, I’m not a strong feminist; I’m a middle aged man. The guy tried to play games with her; I’ve seen it hundreds of times. He sent unsolicited sex messages from a company phone, if he gets fired for it, it’s his own doing.

  73. It’s women like you that ruin mens opinions of women because we only ever hear about the bad ones.

    Imagine you’re someone else and you read what you wrote to him, and imagine he was your friend or brother. What would you think of the girl in the text? You’d think she’s a psychopath and he narrowly dodged a bullet, and you’d be right.

    You’re also fat, you should do something about that because it’s not healthy.

  74. Jesus fuck me christ stop wearing those weird little dresses, you need something to make your body look longer not shorter!

  75. Here’s a note from a guy who received a message like this once upon a time, Ms. Pu.

    I think we’re probably good to go. The fact that you have your own condo, your own life, and a social blog centered around being a crazy single female in the middle of a town known for women whose entire life centers around non-essential functions (IE, galas, benefits, etc) is perfectly fine.

    It’s just not for me.

    It’s not that I don’t find you attractive. I’ve dated many women I initially found attractive, then realized I was more interested in her “exoticness”. I’ve found many women your age to be mature, intelligent, and capable of holding a conversation involving something other than the gossip column or what shoes someone was wearing at said function, but usually, they were capable of understanding when I wanted to talk about something else.

    It’s not that you’re not smart, or that you’ve written two books that read like a series of gossip columns condensed into two self-publishing debacles.

    It’s that if you felt so, so very confident in yourself and who you were, maybe you would have understood that I meant “dress down” because I didn’t want to have you show up to a t-shirt and jeans function blinged out to the nines. I like opera, I do. What I don’t like is your inability to listen. To comprehend. Or to pay attention to what you’re saying when it’s coming out of your mouth, or your fingers.

    Hey, maybe I shouldn’t have asked you out on a date. Maybe I shouldn’t have tipsily staggered over to your table, and given you my email address. Maybe I should have actually paid attention to you tapping your phone left and right during our dates. Maybe I should have checked to see what you did for a living, and maybe, after I realized that you were self-centered, self-involved, and out to play the wild woman about town character with her “sassy crew of female compatriots”, yes, I should have walked away. I should have done it with more class. I should have refrained from doing it on my phone using text, but as I have gathered, you’re quite comfortable smearing anything people say to you on your phone in the interests of “gossip” and blogging.

    But, hey. I tried to be nice. I tried to be pleasant, and I tried to explain to you, in short, that I don’t think you and I are going to work out. I had a good time on Saturday but in all honesty, you made me think there was something to worry about if I dated you. It looks like I was right.

    If I were going to write about this little incident, I’d probably throw in some telltale dirt. I’d throw it in my own little blog. I’d mention how, late at night, with me and you making out, finding the angles all wrong, awkward, the sex never lining up, your inability to move your body in anything resembling coordination, with the sudden comprehension through the red wine haze that I was trying to mate with a female version of a cubist painting or an opera diva – bad angles, a hideous posturing, and viciously calculated stances. I was trying to have sex with something that held together under the highest tension of Spanks, creaking corsetry, tautly wired underbras and a careful two hours’ worth of makeup and hairstyling before even attempting to move, and once stripped of even the most basic of that armor, the expectation was for me to do all the work, in its entirety. I’d mention how you barely moved, how you lay back and moved your head fractionally, as if you were still in Kodiak, the prettiest girl in the bar, instead of the girl who has suddenly realized that she doesn’t even rank on the top 20 list, and comes behind most of the bartenders (who aren’t even the same gender).

    I definitely shouldn’t have mentioned my daughter to you. I shouldn’t have talked about my life, and I guess the fact that the little text messages you sent to my employers are screenshots, and can be easily faked – as most gossip columnists who make their living by trashing other people’s lives and livings definitely know.

    That said, I have to say that if you are so very, very crushed by my realization that I made a mistake, that you have to write a single blog post, that you have to rant about me, my life, my request for a single date with a girl who didn’t have to pretend she wasn’t everything she left in smalltown Georgia, or my own daughter…

    …well. You spent four years getting an excessively expensive education, so you ought to recognize the quote, “Methinks the lady doth protest too much”.

    For a more clear answer, if my single rejection of you, who you are, and the realization that I, a guy who was not only definitely older than you, but also had a more serious obligation to myself and my life, and what I was looking for in a relationship didn’t involve a trite partygirl whose most serious work conversation involves what someone was wearing to what society function, well, I’d say it’s got very little to do with my life, and far, far more to do with yours.

    In other words, Quin, I think you cried your eyes out over a quart of Ben and Jerry’s, then hit the gym for doubles on Monday to purge the consolation ice cream from your system. I think you bought yourself some new shoes or a new dress; maybe some MAC makeup, and then stormed around thinking of the best way to respond, publicly, to show how much of a strong, sassy, independent single female that you are.

    And it might have worked, had you not posted your flameout, your immature little post, and attempted to “snark” your way at my job. The problem is, Quin, you’re not Carrie from Sex and the City. You’re a smalltown Georgia girl by way of Alaska who tried like hell to shake off the red clay and the salmon to make it in the DC area. You’re not witty, and your writing is filled with cliche, hacks, and one-offs that read like a bad comedy sketch.

    But I want to say I did think you were smart, funny, and cool. I do. Everything that was presented to me at the bar, on our date, and everything else said you were a great girl. But underneath it, the Spanks, the red wine stains on the couch, the sloppiness, and the exhaustingly applied layers of makeup shone through.

    I regret texting you. I regret making sexts to you. But in all honesty, I regret that you felt so lonely, so threatened, and so afraid of being rejected that you found solace in making any and every excuse in the book to demand “respect”.

    So I should say that I thought you were smart, funny, and cool. Now I think you’re sad, lonely, and barely holding it together under a tough, alpha bitch veneer, a revamped True Life version of Sex and the City, and drowning any challenge to that fragile little illusion under Vermont ice cream and gallons of red wine.

    And now I just think of you that way. Awkward angles. Lights out to remove any hint of the supporting underwear or hosiery, and only when you come home at the latest hour possible, do I think of you as you are – a half-empty glass of red wine on the table beside the couch, a melting pint of ice cream, and heels in an awkward ying-yang comfiguration from where you released your aching feet.

    So to be truthful, I don’t find you sexy, or smart, or cool – I pity you. Because in only a few hours will you get up, layer on makeup and clothing, and you’ll go back out, convinced that because you wrote a post about a guy you barely know, you’ve vindicated your life, and what you do. Yet the entirety of your life’s work thus far has come down to this: a petty post by a jilted girl on a blog about the pettiest lives in the most vibrant, important city in the nation.

    I only wish you knew how utterly sad and pathetic that makes your life.

    So thanks, but no thanks, and I hope you find what you’re looking for. After all, you like men, don’t you?

    Anywhere else, that’d be an open admission. Here, it’s just you being a sassy, single girl in the city.

    • As a quick note: I was this guy, once upon a time.

      I’m not THIS guy – as in, Ms. Quin’s erstwhile tipsy DC “I may have made a slight error in judgement” dateboy.

      But I was on the other side of this situation more than once, on the other side of the country, and all I can say is:

      Damn. I’m so glad I didn’t date either of those women for longer than the two single dates before the latent psychopathy kicked in.

      That said, I am happily married to a woman who not only gets me, but tolerates my ridiculousness, and has done so since the day we met.

      And, as a second note: I really do hope Quin finds someone that makes her happy. The problem is, I somehow doubt there’s going to be a long line of people queuing up to be treated this way – publicly on her blog, or not.

  76. You’re reaction, while a little steep for only a couple dates with the guy, was justified given your birthday. But to send the txt messages he sent you to his place of employment, regardless of it the phone is paid by them or not, is entirely unacceptable and, excuse my french, completely FUCKED UP. How can you expect to ever find love when a man will have to risk his job breaking up with you, and knowing this going into the relationship. I wouldn’t even take the chance. You need to relax.

  77. A filter is what you put in a coffee cup.

    It’s also what made what looks like nearly 5,000 people hit your blog and call you an idiot.

    Being 26 isn’t an excuse for you to act like a retarded monkey, hurling its feces about when it gets its banana taken away from it.

  78. So a guy lets you know that he isn’t interested after a couple of weeks (granted, it was through text but at least he didn’t lead you on) and that’s how you react? You think it’s appropriate to go after his job, belittle him and then be nasty about his daughter (I’m assuming that’s who the nine year old he has at home is) because he’s being honest about not being interested in you like that? Or is it because you read far too much into his use of the word ‘girl’, deciding to take the whole thing as an insult?

    You’re a foul person who still has a lot of growing up to do.

  79. The amount of privilege in this article disgusts me. You are a middle class, cishet, bigot and your very existence oppresses millions of trans* POCs.

  80. Seriously this is just bat-shit crazy and makes you out to be a gigantic cunt. Pretty fucking unacceptable behaviour from a grown up. As far as I can tell he did nothing wrong except for realise he wasn’t into you. So… I’m not big on flaming strangers on the net, but you’re an extremely shitty person.

  81. Quin,

    The verdict is clearly in regarding your actions and your decision to post them on a blog that also appears to be your “professional” one, so I won’t repeat what’s been said. However, you should also understand that you’ve drastically set back if not ruined any chance you may have had at a prosperous freelance writing career.

    I say this as a person whose job it is to review pitches for an online publication I won’t name here, but is one that, if you are younger than 40, you have definitely heard of and probably read at least once a month. Our unique hits/month number is usually around ten times the population of Washington, D.C.

    When I get a pitch from a new writer, I see what I can learn about the writer online. If you pitched us, I would be on this page or an archived version of it within two minutes of knowing your name.

    Your online presence shows that you lack kindness and decency (this post), and also have issues with honesty–for example, your claim to have read Ulysses “dozens of times” is completely unbelievable, and this is exactly the sort of embellishment that ruins journalist and memoirist careers.

    For these reasons, no matter how good your hypothetical pitch was, there is no chance I would ever pass it on to any section editor at our publication. If you want to believe I am some sort of outlier, so be it. But know that I passed this around to a few of my colleagues and their reaction mirrored–in a slightly less troll-like tone–some of the more enraged comments above. Our “Women” section editor’s jaw practically hit her desk and she was still shaking her head when I left her.

    And just to disabuse you of a notion that may or may not have entered your head over the last 24 hours, this is NOT the sort of publicity that will help you in any way.

    Character does not change overnight. You have a lot of work to do–that has nothing to do with writing–if you ever want this as a career. Good luck.

    • Rich Moyer, you are brilliant. I’m surprised at the fact that no one on here has acknowledged this. But this is the most useful piece of feedback the author could receive.

  82. Hey assholes with the some odd 2 fucking responses or whatever it is. It was a legit response using software that I’ve never used. What does it matter? If you knew the answer, you should have responded to the text rather than be a complete fucking asshole on the page. Been around these parts 10x longer than you have and your kind, make me want to fucking puke. Good thing your pics aren’t up because if they were I’d fucking kick the living shit out every one of you if I EVER saw you at a show.

  83. That such BS actually bothers you is pathetic. If he was half the ass you claim he was (though he isn’t based on what you say here) all the better for avoiding getting more involved. You seem incredibly full of yourself, yet obviously you have low self-esteem if this bothers you so much, so I think its just an act. Go ahead and shove your privilege in everyone’s faces, it just shows how shallow you are. Who gives a flying fck if you own a condo? If you people like you for what you have rather than who you are, you must be a incredibly lonely and miserable person, and I pity you. My only advice would be to use all of that privilege and wealth (and yes, I mean ALL of it, not a pittance, and not other people’s money) to help others while living as simply as possible yourself, only then will you know who your true friends are. You know what you should be upset about in the world? Injustice. Poverty. Disease. Maybe use some of that cash to help just one of the hundreds of thousands of kids out there threatened by easily preventable diseases and/or without access to clean water actually see their 26th birthday.

    I really have to stop reading garbage like this, damn you imgur; you will make me lose my faith in humanity one of these days.

  84. Oh, and I am a real lawyer. I’ve also really done all of the following things:

    – Been in non-public areas of the White House
    – Produced papers that were put into the hands of the President
    – Had my picture taken with the President
    – Attended a private briefing with the First Lady
    – Sat in the President’s box at the Kennedy Center
    – Sat in the office chair of a well-known Presidential candidate
    – Had a private lunch with at least one Senator
    – Had lunch in the private Senate dining room
    – Been to a private party with two (different) Senators, and two political talk-show hosts
    – Had drinks with a (different) Senator in his chambers
    – Been told an off-color joke by a (different, and of course Republican) Senator
    – Represented three Members of Congress in communications with the public
    – Been one of four people in a meeting with the Mayor of a top-3 American city
    – Had drinks (and been at a Dead show) with the Deputy Mayor of a (different) top-3 American city
    – Been sought out as a source by one of the top reporters on cable news

    And all of that was over a decade ago, before I turned 24.

  85. I dated a girl just like you once — a sassy, fashion-obsessed, party girl bitch that thought the world owed her something because of her skewed perception of her own appearance and her rich daddy. You seem crazy. Maybe this dude read your blog and realized how narcissistic you are…but I’m sure he picked up on that in the first 5 minutes of talking to you. Girls like you are the kind that guys don’t want to date because it requires way too much energy to keep up with dealing with a girl who thinks she’s God’s gift to the male population. You are a booty call because it seems like the only time you are tolerable is when drunk. Especially since you aren’t even that attractive. A girl who is a perfect 10 could MAYBE get away with this, and even then most guys wouldn’t want to deal with her, but when you’re a 5 or a 6, you don’t stand a chance. “Happily single” is just a mask for “I can’t find a guy to tolerate my ‘fabulous life’ for more than a drunken, hazy weekend.”

  86. Last night my girlfriend came home earlier than she ever has and caught me, naked, watching porn, and stroking it with a mask and snorkel on.
    There’s not really much to say at that point. She walked right past me and went into the bedroom. I quickly turned the porn off, put on some pants, and took the mask and snorkel off. Five minuets later she came out of the bedroom and asked how my day was… it was like she didn’t just catch me throttling myself with a mask and snorkel on. The rest of the evening went as normal. We had baked chicken and green beans for dinner, and then watched the simpsons.
    I don’t really don’t know what else to say.

  87. Well the downside is that you’re incredibly defective and handle rejection with the temperament of a 15 year old girl. The upside is that you advertised this on the internet, so other men can spot the red flags and run before it’s too late.

  88. Kudos to the Man for being open and honest in his message. Not everyone is going to connect the way we hope and if someone isnt as into you as you are them, be happy they are honest and forth coming about it. No need to send a snarky reply boasting about your accomplishments. His message did not in any way say something negative about your character, just that he was on a different page. I wish more men would be like this, however many choose to disappear to avoid drama like this.

  89. Are you insane? You’re trying to get a man fired from his job because he broke up with you, in a fair, honest way?

    You need to see a therapist.

  90. you’re a fucking psycho. WOW, trying to ruin his career after a 20 hour stint that he tried to end politely (albeit through text). You’re a fucking horrible person and I hope you die alone and miserable you stupid cunt

  91. In all honesty, I don’t understand. I’m a 26 year old feminist and the one thing I see wrong with this is that he decided to text you instead of a more straight-forward form of communication to express himself. What about this is bothering you? And where is the need to involve his professional life in a random encounter? Am I missing something here?

  92. Well, I appreciate the opportunity you’re giving me Ms. Pu as the single sweetest scholar in this comment thread, to speak. Well, ladies and gentlemen we’re not here to indulge in fantasy but in philosophical and academic reality. America, America has become a second-rate SSRN power. Its citation deficit and its publication deficit are at nightmare proportions. Now, in the days of tenure-track when our country was a top academic power, there was accountability to the scholar. The Langdells, the Coases, the men that built this great academic empire, made sure of it because it was their scholarship at stake. Today, faculty has no stake in the scholarship! All together, these women reviewing your Amazon book have read less than three percent of all of its drivel. And where does Ms. Pu put her three page footnotes? Not in any peer reviewed journal! You own the scholarship. That’s right, you, the law review editors. And you are all being royally screwed over by these, these practitioners, with their conference rooms, their billable hours and flat fees, their CLEs and business development.

    Pu: This is an outrage! You’re out of line Leiter!

    Little Black Blog, Ms. Pu,Little Blag Blog has 5 different guests bloggers each producing over 200 hyperlinked cross-citations a year. Now, I have spent the last two months analyzing what all these hyperlinks do, and I still can’t figure it out. One thing I do know is that your blog lost 9 of its 10 subscribers last night, and I’ll bet that half of that was due to all the cross cites between these guest bloggers! The new law of evolution in academic America seems to be survival of the unhyperlinked. Well, in my book you either do it right or you get track changed. In the last seven law reviews that I’ve been involved with, there were 2.5 million footnotes which produced an as-printed total of 12 billion citations. Thank you. I am not a destroyer of law reviews. I am a liberator of them! The point is, ladies and gentleman, that scholarship, for lack of a better word, is good. Scholarship is right, scholarship works. Scholarship clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the philosophical spirit. Scholarship, in all of its forms; scholarship of life, of money, of love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind. And scholarship, you mark my words, will not only save Little Black Blog, but that other malfunctioning society rag called the USA. Thank you very much.

  93. My goodness. This Quinn person doesn’t have much self-esteem. Poor, stupid girl. And make no mistake. She proved herself to be a GIRL.

    I really wish that the feminist studies psychopaths would stop being each others Narcissus and water. It’s nothing but a circle-jerk.

    Seriously. Go off yourselves if your lives are so horrible. Leave everyone else alone. I’m a woman and I SWEAR this mentality does NOTHING but insult me everytime I hear such garbage. There are REAL things that could be addressed…but instead toddleresque fit throwing is all you do.

    You don’t want to be talked down to? Be someone who is WORTH seeing as an equal. You don’t want to be infantilized? Don’t act like a fucking infant.

  94. Wow. I don’t think you proved anything to him here. I think you only helped him see what a bullet he dodged. That is some major butthurt, there.

  95. I can imagine what a girl would think about that last text message, if the tables were reversed. She would have thought – what an insecure defensive, needy jerk, that he had to follow up with such a long text, whining about me gracefully telling him that I am not interested.

  96. You’re crazy as fuck. So because he rejected you, you feel the need to attempt to ruin aspects of his life because he didn’t feel a connection with you? You have issues. Quit feeding your ego talking about how published two, more than likely, less than readable books and live in a discount condo. I hope posting this blog backfires on you and turns your career for the worst. He was even nice about saying he’s not interested and you still acted like a psycho. Seriously I have to ask, what the fuck were you thinking and what the fuck is wrong with you?

  97. This isn’t funny in the slightest. You aren’t being a witty, sarcastic, interesting person by responding to people like this. You are being cold, heartless, and completely taking things in the most negative light possible. If anything, your reaction shows you’ve been hurt in the past and are taking it out on this guy. The only person you will ever date when you treat people like this are shells of individuals that you can mold into doing whatever you want. Have fun with that, you’ll get bored and realize you’re alone even in a relationship. Psycho.

  98. You are batshit insane.

    Did you really think people were going to side with you on this?

    When looking for your “you go girl”s in the future, try to make sure you are in the right. You aren’t even on the same planet as “right” on this one.

    Oh, and can’t wait for your next story. Here’s an idea. “You are trudging through the rain trying to make it to an important appointment. A guy holds to door open for you. You kick him in the balls.” It would be hilarious.

  99. At 26 you’re way too old to be acting like this. You should be ashamed of yourself! Honestly! You were hooking up with other men anyway, so why were you so upset? I hope you have some good friends who can talk you down from doing such absurd things in the future! Jeez!

    • I think this wretchedly pathetic blog post is better known as “too clever by half”. Just sayin’. I bet this blog dies a hot sweaty death before December. It certainly deserves it. Team Pu – time to pack it up and look for some real careers – this one just went supernova.

  100. The man tears in this comment thread are absolutely delicious. Keep crying, boys. “Waaah, a girl was mean to us! Waaah, we’re such nice guys, why are you such a crazy bitch?”

    Here’s a hint – if you’re going to go off on a girl and call her crazy, a bitch, a whore, a slut, “unhinged” or a little girl… you’re not as nice as you think you are.

    Please put your fedoras back on so we can spot you easier.

    • nobody said anything about nice. We’re talking about this crazy bitch threatening to ruin a man’s livelihood for daring to break up with her.

    • Please keep spewing your bullshit so we can keep our dicks away from you. Have fun clearing the cobwebs out of your vagina with that attitude lol

    • LOL…no, darling, nobody is going to be crying over this chick any time soon, that is unless it’s tears of relief when she goes away, or maybe her parents crying when they pay her credit card bills again.

      Don’t worry about her though, she’ll be fine, she HAS A CONDO!

  101. It’s women like you that perpetuate the stereotype that all women are crazy.

    Only, in this instance, it’s true.

    Because, man, you are CRAZY.

    Stereotypes: 1 – Women: 0

    As well, to the women that are applauding this type of juvenile response: I’d revise my relationship/acceptable behavior standards if I were you. Your cats will only live so long. Then who will be there to keep you company? This silly girl? Me-ow.

    • I’d also like to add this little tidbit from LBB’s mission statement:

      “Though a blog, LBB is not any of the following: personal diary, open forum for bad poetry, area to learn cheat codes. Take that ish to yourbloghere.blogspot.com.”

      So… Why is this obviously personal rant posted here?

      • Very well said, I’m disgusted that a person(man or women) could be treated so disgustingly just because they took a chance on somebody and decided it was going no where. Needs to keep her ex lover around(why tell us) clearly insecure and hated having to accept that no… in fact the world is not in love with her.

  102. Did you send these texts back before or after you met up with your ex-lover? Talk about bat-shit insane. This guy dodged a ticking time bomb. Good on him for not winding up on the news murdered by a jealous, self-entitled 26 year old “author.”

  103. You overreacted like a complete psycho. He’s lucky to have gotten away this early on. Nice one star reviews on your 2 whole books, btw, and congrats on the condo, I can tell you two will be very happen together since you somehow think having one is all that matters.

  104. Your attitude is utterly disgusting and you show hallmark signs of someone with narcissistic personality disorder.

    You go on a few dates with a guy and he tells you that it’s not really going anywhere and you flip out needing to lash out and attempt to hurt him via sending messages to his boss, show how vapid you actually are by thinking writing a few trash books and having a condo somehow validate your worth as a human (tip: they don’t) then attempt to brag about it to people on your blog, whilst trying your best to convince everyone (mostly yourself) that you’re not destroyed because a man doesn’t worship the ground you walk on with your petty “I was seeing an ex anyway”.

    You bring up the semantics of him calling you a “girl” well maybe when you start acting like a woman you’d have some reason to believe you should be called one. In short he had a lucky escape and you’re probably going to go viral so everyone can see what a vindictive and poisonous person you can be, congratulations!

  105. You need help, and that’s ok. You are emotionally wounded (like most people are, including me) and are a danger to other people at this point in time. You reacted in a way that demonstrates exactly that. The way you wrote this and the text you shown us show clear signs of abandonment issues and a compulsive need to control other people (aka manipulative behaviour). If you do it unconsciously you can change yourself if put in the work. On the other hand, if you already see your manipulative and controlling ways as ego-congruent, you’ll rationalise your way out of putting in the work of self-healing, and will live a self destructive and misery spreading life till the day you die, with some intermittent rushes of dopamine along the way. Good luck in your journey towards self healing, hope it ends up happening. PS: you may also search in youtube for the name Pia Mellody, she can bring some light into what I’m trying to getting across to you here.

  106. Girl, the dude was not interested, he was polite and complimentary in declining the invitation to your birthday party. The type of tirade you gave should be reserved for a guy you have been dating for two years or broke off your engagement. You met him in a bar when he was drunk and went on two dates with him not quite a let’s get married moment.

    To the dudes with all the “c**t” “B****h comments you hastily posted on this post, you need to get a grip and a life. Based on your responses, maybe it is sorry excuses for men like you that merit these type of over the top responses from people like her.

  107. “winning over complete strangers.” — as I can tell from these comments, this is really is you’re stront suit! put a sock in it, psycho hose beast. you are a huge loser.

  108. Who throws their own birthday party? Funny.
    The real problem with dating is that people TEXT one another. Try picking up the phone and having a conversation. If you are going to break up with someone, have the decency to call them and let them know. If you are annoyed that they texted you a breakup – CALL them and tell them that it was inconsiderate, but thanks anyway.

  109. It is absolutely unbelievable how far back you have just taken normal, 26 year old women. If ANY woman reads this and thinks anything other than the fact that you are a a sociopath who is incapable of rejection, then I assure you, they will stay single forever, as I’m sure you will. I just hope the NORMAL women reading this don’t take an example from a PSYCHO like you.

    Enjoy the single life….

  110. You’re a cow, you really are a child trapped in your own fantasy world. It’s a shame you can’t pick yourself up and alter yourself, you’re behaviour is clearly not attractive to men. And sending his texts to his company, you’re a bitch.

  111. Funniest part about this is, he was trying to be nice letting her down and she went over the top, like all Asians do. A+ in school? WHY NOT A++!!!!

    Note: I bet those tits touch the bed when shes on her back. Never seen so much space before.

    Viva la Stool!

    • Oh wait, people called you that already. And then you were defended by others. Cool. It’s just that, you truly come across as a childish little bitch with an unrealistic idea of who you think you are, versus who you are in reality. Normally I wouldn’t come to comment on things like this, but you’ve managed to cram a mass amount of idiocy into your blog post here.

  112. You are the definition of an obnoxious, stuck-up cunt. he obviously sensed this and bailed before he ended up in your web of cuntiness. Fuck you and fuck the dolts who cheered your petty little revenge scheme on.

  113. You sound like a crazy person. You went out once, wasn’t feeling it, and tried to spare your feelings, and you acted like a child throwing a tantrum in a toy store cuz she didn’t get what she wanted. You look like the fool by posting this.

  114. From all the comments I’ve read here, and on other sites. about 95% of both men and women think this Quin Woodward Pu is a total batshit crazy, stuck up, bitch. who is attempting to get a guy , that she just met fired, because he dumped her via text. Really? I’d be afraid to give you the news in person. He was probably smart enough to notice how freaking off your rocker you were and figured this would be safer. I really hope this comes back and blows up in your face you fucking nut job

  115. Your reaction was completely unwarranted, petty, and self-important. It reflects so poorly on you that it went viral.

    Maybe you’re of the opinion that all publicity is good publicity. This may create opportunities for you (you know the kind where people love to hate you because you’re inexplicably proud of your shameful behavior), but just remember: you’re now more famous for acting like a jerk than for anything else you’ve accomplished in your entire life. Great job!

  116. Enjoy reading your “two published books” in your “condo” alone for the rest of your life because I’ve never seen a more self absorbed bitch in my entire life. The most pathetic part is how proud of yourself you are for this. The only thing that makes me feel a little better is knowing how fucked in the head you are and how lucky this guy is to have gotten out early you insecure, narcissistic, fat, ugly cunt.

  117. Jesus it was two dates! I dated someone 4 dates before she told me she didnt think it was working. You know what I did. I became her friend instead!

    Get over yourself!

  118. The girl comes off very desperate, immature and insecure. I’m embarrassed for her. Hopefully this is a troll and not a real person. If it is real it might be time for this girl to delete her blog and get counseling

  119. Just because you wrote 2 shitty books and own a condo, doesn’t mean your life is perfect. Because, jeez, if you’re life WAS perfect, you wouldn’t be picking up men at a bar, fantasizing about having a serious relationship with them after 2 dates, and then when they don’t want to be with your bat-shit crazy ass, breaks ups with you via text message (which is completely normal and common after 2 casual dates), you go crazy and try to get him fired and send some lame response ALSO via text message trying to showboat all your life achievements. Sorry that someone sees through all your crazy bullshit and doesn’t want to be with you. You’re probably boring and contrite anyway. Life’s going to get really fun for you when you realize having a condo doesn’t make you safe from the world, that you may die alone, that you may date many men who lead you on longer than 2 dates and dump you or trick you into loving them. That’s when it’ll really hurt. You have a lot of learning to do, I suggest you man the fuck up and stop being such a crazy fucking bitch. You’re a horrible worthless person.

  120. I have a condo, hahaha. You are pathetic person. You must feel good about yourself after this. You went viral, everyone knows how bad of a person you are now, good luck with that in life.

  121. You’re obviously a certified lunatic. The reason he “let you down easy,” was he didn’t wanna end up in your freezer. Can’t imagine why you’re single!!

  122. Put it like this chunk chinga, blend the toxic soap out of water with stevia to make pureH20. Your body will transform into perfect health, lean and ripply. No shit, Rosanne Barr.

  123. a guy youve spent only 20 hours with says he doesnt want to get serious and you react by trying to get him fired & blasting him on a website…smh. There is nothing “outrageously chauvinistic” about a man saying their life is “in flux” and not wanting to get into something serious. In those 20 hours that you downplayed, you were impressed enough to allow him to sext you and you were probably impressed enough to drop your skirt and spread your legs which would explain why youre so hurt. You were a hoe, plain and simple. Got treated like a hoe and now are acting out like a crazy, scorned, hoe.

    cunt.

    • Usually I’d feel sorry for the person on the receiving end of all this backlash, but in this case I hope she’s reading every single word.

  124. This has to be a spoof, right? It’s disturbing to think there are women out there my age who are this petty, vengeful, neurotic and self-absorbed. It’s almost enough to put a guy off dating completely…

  125. Serious question: why are you such a petty, mean and vindictive person? I mean does being nasty and obnoxious bring you pleasure, or is it merely part of the “young and don’t give a fuck” persona you’re trying to craft for yourself? It isn’t attractive, nor is it funny or interesting either. You went on TWO DATES with a guy, he politely told you he wasn’t interested and he even took the time to compliment your personality. Your response is to defame, annoy and pester him? Why? And why do you claim not to care when you so clearly DO care?

    Advice: Try to grow up and accept life’s little setbacks without tossing a giant pissy fit. Not everyone is obligated to swoon over your specialness. try living life as a nice person and perhaps someday you’ll end up with one.

  126. She knew this man for literally two weeks. That isn’t even real friendship level yet. I would not consider this to even be called a break-up. It sounds to me like he saw her in a bar one night and due to being buzzed, thought maybe she was worth a second look. Quin openly calls him sloppy and annoyingly drunk, so why did she give him her email address in the first place? She’s obsessive. She wants to make it look like she barely thought about him, that she’s worldly and busy and has a “lover” for the inane, lowly human desires such as physical affection. She is an independent woman, blah blah blah. So when she and this guy got together, he quickly realized that she was an absolute nightmare. Rather than risk hurting her feelings by dragging out the acquaintance (that is the only apt word for their “relationship”), he quickly cuts her loose in the most polite way he can manage. Note how he even compliments her. The text is friendly. It’s nice. It masks the truth that this woman is a petty, narcissistic psychopath and he is 100% positive she will never find love. He could have told her that. Instead he was nice. He told her this via text because look at how Quin reacted JUST TO A TEXT. Can you imagine if he would have broken up with her face to face? It would have been a veritable shit storm. Now this woman Quin, who claims to be happily single, does not respond to the situation with class and dignity. Instead, she emails sexting pictures to this man’s boss. Just because he doesn’t want to date her. What gives her the right to do something so absolutely hellish to another human being? He wasn’t mean to her. He didn’t lead her on. He went on a couple of dates, got to know her better, and realized she was not someone he wanted to spend more time with. So he ended things immediately rather than drag himself through a long and miserable relationship in which he would probably cheat on her and she would in turn burn his house down or some other wildly unequal punishment. Quin’s returning text to this man is supposed to make us admire her woman power. It does not. It shows that she is clinically insane. If all it takes to ruin her birthday is for a dude she barely knows to skip out on attending it, then how can her life be as great and fulfilling as she claims it is? P.S. Anyone can self-publish. It takes no talent whatsoever to self-publish. Boasting that you are 26 with two published books does not mean shit if you just took it to a vanity press. The fact that you published two memoirs about your own life, which does not sound remotely interesting, speaks volumes about the crippling level of narcissism you’ve attained.

    In summation: You cannot punish someone for not liking you. You do not justify ruining someone else’s career – or trying to ruin someone else’s career – just because you feel you have been wronged by them on a personal level. You reacted in a bizarrely childish way. You were vindictive. You may have destroyed this man’s business life, and subsequently his financial life, which affects every other aspect of his life. You punished a man you met two weeks ago because he doesn’t want a relationship with you. You deserve much worse than a break-up text. You deserve to be humiliated all over the Internet.

  127. You can’t seriously be proud of yourself right now, can you? In all honestly, I’d say this guy, and from now on, any guy who Googles your name after a barstool flirtation, is dodging a major bullet of cray.

  128. Wow, just wow. And here I thought I was acting crazy when I demanded my ex-fiance break up with me in person rather than over the phone.

    This guy’s boss isn’t going to punish him for sending a couple texts on his personal phone. He’s definitely not going to get in any trouble since it’s abundantly clear that *you are out of your fucking mind*. I thought about calling you mean and petty the way other people here have—and they’re not totally wrong—but I think the underlying factor is that YOU. ARE. CRAZY. You went on two dates and he very gently let you down, and you flew off the handle. You are an insane person. Please get help.

  129. Happy birthday, Quin!

    Happy for me, not for you, because today I get to relish in the fact that a narcissistic cunt is one day closer to death!

  130. This is my favorite of her 1 star book reviews on Amazon:

    “This book is perfect if you have a coffee table or chair from IKEA that you couldn’t quite figure out and it’s got a leg too short. It’s the perfect size to slide underneath and prop it up correctly. People who have self-published 2 vanity books and own a condo may also be interested.

    I would also recommend it for anyone who needs paper for a fire, lining a birdcage, or just because you like killing trees in the name of sophomoric, navel-gazing prose by 20-nothings with very little of consequence to say. Reading this and, say, hitting yourself repeatedly in the head with hammer would also produce similar results. Hammers are cheaper though.

    I think my favorite part was where Pu (rhymes with ‘poo’) tries shaming a guy who broke up with her after two dates and a “collective 20 hours” via text message, only to come off looking like a complete and utter psychopath, full of insecurity, anger managment, rejection, and entitlement issues to spare. I mean, who wouldn’t want to propose on the first date to a winner like Pu (did I mention it rhymes with ‘poo?’)

    My advice? Buy this book, and then give it to your worst enemy. They’ll know you mean business.”

    • “”I had fun reading some of this book, but quite honestly, I am in a state of flux right now and am really not looking to read the rest of it. Sorry to be a downer, but I have no doubt the author will write another memoir because she is a funny, smart, cool girl! Good luck.”

  131. Someday, after you’ve grown up, you will read this stuff again and you will be absolutely mortified at what a pretentious twat sandwich you once were. Good luck, best wishes and one tip: lay off the night-eating.

  132. If this girl (sorry, woman) can’t take rejection (welcome to what it’s like to be a guy), then maybe she shouldn’t date. Just another example of someone who HAS to have the last word. When a girl I’ve been out with a few times let’s me know she’s no longer interested, I don’t lash out in anger. Rather, as a mature ADULT, I simply don’t respond and move on to other prospects. Or sometimes I’ll politely respond and we’ll be friends. Surely a woman who invites 125 friends (nice humble brag) to her birthday party can understand that concept. I particularly like how she lashes out and calls him a “self-aggrandizing disaster”. Newsflash – she’s the one who CHOSE to spend 20 hours with this “disaster”. Calling him such doesn’t merely reflect badly on him…it reflects badly on HER. Maybe one day she’ll realize that…

  133. Keep your personal life and private life separate. If you feel the need to rant and rave on your website, so be it. Hell, even write one of your books about it, but contacting the guy’s superiors at his workplace is irrelevant. If you truly feel you’re as awesome a person as you try to make yourself out to be, then go be awesome and make him feel like he lost his shot. That shit you pulled is uncalled for and makes you look like a huge bitch.

    P.S. You may also want to consider therapy cuz your reaction to such a short term relationship isn’t normal.
    P.P.S. If this is some sort of joke post (which I really hope it is), you might want to make it funny or more obvious.

  134. Well Miss Pu, it appears that you have been tried and convicted of irrational and psychopathic behavior but, before we sentence you to death as some have already suggested, I think it prudent to examine the evidence of the young man in question. Here is what we know:

    – He was intoxicated when he asked for your phone number
    – You voluntarily provided it to him (perhaps not wise but this is not your trial)
    – He was sober when he asked you out to dinner
    – He was sober when he asked you out for champagne
    – He was sober when he rejected your invitation to your birthday party
    – He was sober when he invited you visit a winery with him
    – You agreed but for only a day visit
    – He was presumably sober when he sent explicit pictures of himself to you
    – There is no evidence that you reciprocated by sending pictures of yourself
    – In the apparent absence of reciprocation, he cancelled the winery trip using the reason that his life was in flux and that he was not looking for a relationship.

    Reasonable questions to ask:

    1) Why, if his life was in flux, did he ask you out on dates #1, #2 or #3?
    2) Why would he send explicit pictures of himself to you?
    3) Why would he cancel the winery trip after you only agreed to a day trip?

    Logical conclusion:

    This man is a “player” that was only interested in a self-gratifying sexual relationship; when it became evident that he was not getting into your pants anytime soon, he put an end to the courtship. Unscrupulous men have been doing this for centuries and you just happened to call one out for it. This appears to have upset a number of other men who also suffer from a distinct lack of respect for women and to aid their ailing ego’s, they have decided to go on offense rather than to defend this type of repugnant behavior by a man (not that it is defensible).

    Summary:

    Your are not responsible for him or his daughter; you merely called out his unscrupulous actions but he is wholly responsible for whatever consequences befall him. He attempted to take advantage of you and you stood up to him; for this, you are being labelled a “bitch in the exact same way that thousands of strong woman have in the past. It’s unfortunate that others choose to turn a blind eye to this man’s behavior but I applaud you for having the courage to hold him accountable. I wish you all the best and hope you find a man that is truly worthy of your time and affection.

    • Logical conclusion my ass. You should check your logic honey pie.
      “he attempted to take advantage of you” you don’t know that.
      “you stood up to him”, not really, do you even know that the fuck “standing up to someone” means\? sure it’s fwding his sexts to his boss, ok.
      “bitch in the exact same way that thousands of strong women have in the past” no, thousands of bitches in the past.
      “this man’s behavior” what? courting, dating and taking to bed an ugly woman with serious mental issues? the dude’s a legend, this chick should be thankful.
      “hold him accountable”, yep, ranting about your private life on a blog sure is the honorable thing to do.
      Poor Pu is in for many years of therapy and medication. You should join in Truthseeker. Good luck.

  135. I am a chick that is totally over dating, I have had my fair share of let downs and jerks that is for sure. I’m sure at 25 or 26 or whatever it must seem like you have been dating forever but seriously get over it. This was the most immature response that I have EVER read in my life. Number 1, you are lucky that the guy was honest with you instead of dragging you around for a couple for weeks or months. Sometimes people just aren’t the right fit and that is ok, that doesn’t mean that he didn’t think that you have value. it just means that he didn’t feel a connection. Number 2, stating how cool you are and that you basically don’t need him isn’t necessary because if you don’t need him you don’t care and as much as you made it sound like. If you WEREN’T planning your next 50 years with the guy it sure came off like you were disappointed that you couldn’t. If you truly believe that you are super awesome you will never have to explain that to someone else, they will get it. But in the end it’s ok if someone tells you that they aren’t interested, it saves you some time to find the guy that is right for you. I strongly suggest you read the book He’s just not that into you. It’s an eye opener for women and it could have saved your pride from this entire situation. Instead of understanding that he was being honest with you, your ego got offended and responded. That is never a good place to come from.

    • The guy tried to turn her into a booty call and when it didn’t work, he sent her a condescending text so she called him out… more women need to be willing to stand up to sleazy behavior like what his guy exhibited here.

      • *laughs*

        Keep telling yourself that; the reality is that your friend here just exposed herself as a world-class bucket of crazy. Two dates is not a “relationship.”

        Perspective: Try to get some.

        • You’re right; two dates is not a relationship so why is he sending her sex messages and inviting her to spend the weekend at a winery with him? Why did he cancel the trip when she only agreed to go for the day? Seriously, why is everybody so afraid to take a long critical look at his guys behavior? Especially the women? You get angry when a man promises to call and then doesn’t but then you rationalize this guys actions just because he sent a polite sounding text…. It’s unbelievable.

          • Rubicon, as said elsewhere, if he was sending her unwanted sexts from a government device, she should have advised him that sending any more would result in his being reported to his agency. And then, if they continued, she should have reported him to the agency’s Inspector General. That is how well-adjusted adults handle conflicts, and she’s supposed to be D.C.-savvy, correct?

            Ms. Pu chose not to do that. Instead, after hearing that a guy she met late one night at a bar and had two dates with was not interested in pursuing a relationship, and who relayed that information to her by text message, she stewed for a day, and then composed a hysterical, histrionic, psychotic shit fit of a text message in response; actually hit “send” on it; and then screen capped said text message and posted it here as a badge of pride. To those screen caps, she added a gleeful narrative that included how she hooked up with an ex after one of the dates with the text message guy – signaling a disinterest of her own that apparently is not to be held against her because… why exactly?

            That is not how a well-adjusted adult handles conflict.

            Sorry, but your friend is a fucking bag of cray, a self-centered, deluded, maladjusted, misfit and aspiring famewhore. Deal with it and stop excusing her conduct because of what the guy is alleged to have done (over and above politely dismissing her interest in him by text message). She had avenues for handling his behavior privately and appropriately that she elected not to pursue, in favor of this course of action: “LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT HOW I OWNED HIM!” It’s not simply what she did, but how proud and eager she was for the world to know about, and subsequently validate, her behavior.

            That is not the mark of a mature, secure woman with even a fraction of the self-esteem she is desperate for everyone to believe she has. Your friend is a text or two away from a 5150 hold. Mark my words.

            • First, she is not my friend, I have never met the lady or even heard of her until today. Second, and I said this in another response, as an older man, I’m familiar with the games that young men play. This guy found an overweight woman in a bar and thought he had an easy score; when he found out that it wasn’t the case, he took the cowards way out. Third, she definitely miscalculated how her actions would be construed and yes, I don’t question her motivation behind them. Fourth, even if her motivations were self-serving, I would hope that some women might get the message that they don’t have to accept this kind of treatment from any man. And finally, I admit to being old-fashioned in regards to “sexting”, I find it repugnant. Frankly, if he gets in trouble for engaging in it from a “taxpayer funded phone”, I have no more sympathy for him than I did Tiger Woods.

              • 99.9% agree the guy did nothing wrong. that puts you Rubicon600 at a similar level of misguided delusion is this attention seeking bitch. You have NO IDEA what his intentions were you’re just guessing, and even if he was looking for an ‘easy score’ so what? some girls also are looking for easy scores. No one is impressed by your chivalry.

                how much tax does the USA collect a year and how much does a handful of text messages cost? if it’s government phone the plan probably includes a certain amount of texts with no extra cost. stupid.

              • Well for someone not her friend, you seem to be awfully defensive about her actions.

                As a woman a few years older than Ms. Pu, I can assure you she is the exact nightmare our gender has to deal with for stereotypes: The crazy psycho woman. Doesn’t matter what *he* did, she could have iced him easily and appropriately. Instead, she threw an insane, embarrassing temper tantrum on text and posted it here because she thought it showed how witty, clever and powerful she was being. Sorry, but I’m not buying what she’s selling.

                Have you seen her youtube video? Read her other entries here? We don’t have grounds to believe that he sent what she says she he sent, other than her rather tenuous claim, although in responding to you, I took it on good faith to be true. However, in the context of this site, and what of this guy she was willing to share with the public as it is, we should have serious doubts about that. People who have to remind us constantly how “truthful” and “fabulous” they are generally are neither. Also, after two dates, she knows which is his taxpayer-funded phone and which isn’t? (I’m not the only person who juggles two.)

                But again, taking Ms. Pu’s claim of “sexts” on face value – well really, you think she’s the first woman to receive those without solicitation? Of course not. However, you don’t hear from other women who do because – and hold on here, this is important – we deal with them appropriately and privately. So you’re only high-fiving her because she asked you to, not because she actually did anything right, or handled a situation better than countless other women who have come before her in dealing with it.

                Maybe he wanted a booty call – who cares? Again, she’s not a special snowflake, this isn’t the first time in human history someone was interested in another person for strictly physical reasons. Not only is it not the first time, it’s not a situation that is exclusively one-way, plenty of women, myself included, have looked for guys to be temporary eye candy and move on quickly from them, whether or not we get what we’re hoping for. Big. Fucking. Deal. That’s life. A polite “goodbye and good luck” text is more than many people get (or deserve).

                Lastly, as an “old fashioned” man, I would hope you find it far more repugnant that this girl not only published all of this dirty laundry about a guy with whom she had a tenuous “relationship” of any kind, but that in so doing, she she dragged his nine-year-old daughter into her shitshow of psychosis.

                Sounds to me like you need to take a long, hard look at what you think qualifies a woman as “wronged” or a “victim,” because my dear, what Ms. Pu has published isn’t any sort of a grievance. It’s an advertisement of herself as an unstable individual, and a cautionary tale for any man who encounters her in the future. In that sense, she’s performed a public service for men nationwide. Drunken barroom flirtations will, after a quick Google search, know better than to bother with her.

                As a woman, for setting us back and reinforcing the “crazy woman” trope, however, I’d like to punch her in the ovaries.

      • A date to wine country is not a booty call you stupid poon. Too bad the nukes we sent over didn’t knock out that entire bloodline.

  136. Hahahaha, if you get any more full of yourself you’ll probably explode. Seriously, 125 of your “closest friend”, that’s the first sign of a complete narcissist. And bringing up how many (self-published I assume) books you’ve released and your home ownership status in a text really makes zero sense in response to what he said.

  137. Haha, what a douche. Hitler published too you degenerate hatchet wound….

    Gangrene has probably already consumed your vajayjay

  138. I’m sure by now you know that Gawker.com has owned your crazy ass. Enjoy your internet flame out! But I thought I’d come rub it in anyway.

    Pretty sure he declined your third date via text because he figured out you were crazy (this “blog” post is proof enough of that) and didn’t want to risk being in public with you. Oh yes, sending screen shots to his boss was waaaay less awful than a poilte text declining a date.

    Your awesome chemistry hasn’t “won over” too many “complete strangers” on the ol’ Internet today. Especially with the cheap and nasty shots at a 9 yr old girl. Excellent.

    Enjoy, enjoy the 15 minutes, you totally crazy person. Good luck getting a date in DC now.

  139. just so you know….

    When you wait 10 hours to message back and come up with a childish, bitch like comment like that the guy takes that as:

    “What a loser”

    And deletes your txt and then smiles to himself and probably says “good thing I ended it”

  140. Honestly from the bottom of my heart I hope you die. In an alley, behind a jewel, while a crackhead butt fucks yours corpse. Ahhhh that feels better . Feminist bitch.

  141. Why ANYONE would leave this blog post up is beyond me. It looks like her book went from 4 stars to 1.5 stars overnight. Way to put your foot so far in your mouth it’s coming out your ass.

  142. He sent her sexts and invited her out of town after only two dates; does this seem like appropriate behavior? If she looked like Halle Berry; would people be so willing to turn a blind eye to his actions?

  143. When I first heard about this blog post, I thought, “Awesome! A girl standing up for what she believes in!” Then I read it and was appalled and embarrassed for you.

    I agree with your feelings of hurt. It’s never pleasant to be on the receiving end of a break up, especially through such an impersonal method. However, I do not agree with your method of dealing with it.

    A lot of people peg certain human emotions as being bad, such as anger or jealousy. Human emotions are not bad. We are all capable of them – it’s in our nature! What’s key, though, is how we deal with them, and therein lies the problem with your reaction.

    It definitely can take a while to get over things that deeply hurt you but until that time comes, you need to stay honest with yourself and keep yourself in check. Self restraint is a large part of being human and it takes a great amount of willpower. Hopefully you will come to terms with this break up sooner rather than later and realize that there are better ways to handle this type of situation.

  144. Honey you TOTALLY over-reacted. This guy actually was honest with you instead of just ignoring you or leading you on. Also, you are 26 and a blogger, not a “memoirist”. Also, your blog post is completely pretentious and silly. “I kind of have chemistry with pretty much everyone”….lol were you trying to be ironic??

    • He was not honest…. he was never honest.

      Reasonable questions to ask:

      1) If his life was in flux, why did he ask her out on dates?
      2) Why did he send explicit pictures/messages of himself to her?
      3) Why would he cancel the winery trip after she only agreed to a day trip?

      Logical answer; he pretended to be interested in her as a person when he only wanted a sexual relationship. It was degrading to her and frankly, more women should have the courage to call this kind of behavior out.

        • Sad; that you would attack the woman with hyperbole rather than rationally examining the actions of the man. If we as a society continue to sweep onerous male behavior under the rug, women will never receive the respect they deserve.

            • Would she have earned your respect had she gone to the winery for the weekend on their third date or sent sexy photo’s of herself back to him? Would you respect her more if she just let’s men treat her like an object?

              • Have you read anything this “woman” has written? In her second memoir about late-night parties and going home with drunken guys she just met (I’ve read all of 10 pages and this has happened 3 times), she describes forcing herself into a guy’s bed (with no intention to “do anything”) and, upon waking up in the morning, demanding he drive her home. But then she decides she wants coffee and so he makes her stop to get her some. And then she’s surprised when he calls her up for a date. She goes on said date and after about half an hour decides she wants to “play hard to get” and so she insists he drop her off at a party. I mean fucking hell, it’s one bitchy demand after another.

                She admits to acting sexually promiscuous, so I don’t think the men are fully to blame. She admits to leading guys on to get favors, so I’d say she’s actually 100% at fault if they get the wrong impression about the relationship she’s misrepresenting.

                Also, I highly doubt he just wanted a sexual relationship and it wasn’t going fast enough for him. Much more likely he realized that she was a self-absorbed lunatic and decided he needed to be rid of this girl as quickly as possible. And this wasn’t her first vengeful crusade. Her first boyfriend in college made the mistake of “talking to blue collar lunch ladies” at a dining hall, and this was a huge no-no. So she broke into his room and destroyed shit. I fucking kid you not. I only read 10 pages of her horribly written book and I’ve got all these gems.

                She’s a delusional psychopath. There’s no getting around it.

                • If everything you are saying is true here, her credibility is certainly compromised. Taking her story at face value, I consider the guy a game player and a coward but, given this information, it may not be reasonable to take her at face value.

                  • F*cking irrational feminists are the worst, “I’m right until you can prove otherwise, and even then I’m still right.” C U Next Tuesday’s, like Rubicon here, set their feminist movement back by being so thick-headed. It’s okay to admit that it might not be the guy’s fault 100% of the time.

          • Yeah, it is always the man’s fault. She has no responsibility on this one. I mean, it was his fault that she tried to get him fired because he dumped her after only two dates. Taken her actions into face value, she is an insecure child

  145. Whoa, I am so sadden by people’s responds to her blog for being so open about her life. I find it strange people are so vile and rude on the internet and act differently in person. Anyhow, that’s a separate discussion.

    I’m surprised how many didn’t comprehend what she was trying to say. She’s upset not because of rejection. The fact he assumed she WANT a relationship after 22 hours. I don’t think she convey her point quite well. The fact this guy thought her focal point of happiness was based on his attendance and a relationship with him. Are we reading the same post?

    I would be offended too if some guy I went on 2 dates with told me,”Argh, I can’t attend your birhday I’m out of town. I make it up to you with a vineyard weekend.” She’s smart to say NO to weekend and only a day trip because she states “it was a bit much.” If she was desperate for relationship would’nt she jump on the chance.

    Basically, from my stand point the guy want a easy lay and she respect herself. He caught on doesn’t want to invest to getting to know her. Atleast, he was respect in his text but to insulated she wants a relationship???!!!

    I do disagree with the whole screen shot to the boss thing but wonder what she send exactly. What did he say to her?

      • I know!?! Omgosh I’m so disappointed by everyone’s arrogant and dense response. I bet you half of the people who are commenting didn’t read the blog correctly.

        She had right to call him out on his douche egotistical move.

        • He tried to have sex with her and her response was to attempt to get him fired from his job? How does that seem reasonable? And we don’t even know if he tried to have sex with her — that’s just subtext you’re getting from the person who’s irrationally pissed off at the guy.

          Please head over here: http://www.amazon.com/digfast-Quin-Woodward-Pu/dp/1484142098
          Read a bit of her second memoir. Let me know when you get to the part where she gets drunk with a guy, goes back to his place, sleeps in his bed (she just met him, by the way), and then starts demanding he drive her around town. Do you see how that guy might get the impression that she wanted to sleep with him? Because I certainly do.

          Then let me know when you get to the part about how she broke into her first boyfriend’s house and started wrecking things. ‘Ya know, just put some Windex on his toothbrush, etc. etc. Why did she do this? Because she got was insanely jealous when he talked to a female “blue collar” (her words, not mine) cafeteria worker at a dining hall while getting his food.

          The guy described in the blog post above is a fucking angel. This woman-child is a psychopath.

        • Reading the blog correctly for is basically to say that she is right to react in such a way, even though it is so obvious she is not right and 99.9% of the people here will agree. Unless you believe you are smarter than all the people here. In that case, you are as self-centered as the “two self-published books” bitch of the blog

    • I agree with a lot of things you said and I get your point, but why would she be this mad about him assuming she’d want a relationship with him?

      Perhaps I understand the emotions she’s feeling but the degree to which she feels them and her actions behind them just don’t seem rational.

      • Hi Nimias,

        That’s a good question why would she mad at him for assuming. I guess that’s a deep root issues she has to answer for herself. If it was me, I would of been offended but not taken the route she has especially after two dates. Perhaps it’s a build of things from the past?

        I do agree with you the emotion and the degree of action doesn’t seem rational. But when is human emotion ever rational? lol

      • She’s angry because he treated her like a piece of meat. He takes her for dinner, then champagne; then rejects her birthday invitation but invites her to spend the weekend with him at a winery while sending her sex messages/photo’s.. AFTER ONLY TWO DATES. When she agrees to a day trip only, he suddenly does an about face and says his life is in flux. He pretended to be interested in her but all he wanted was a quick roll in the hay. To me, it’s repugnant.

        • Yeah, the strong feminists that need no man in their lives, lose their shit when they get dumped politely after two dates, because they thought that they would be forever with the guy. Yeah, the strong feminist who needs no man, tries to get him fired and the consequences of that, which are a daughter would get poor and hungry and maybe lose her father and her home, where totally known to her. So, the strong feminist tries to get a man fired because her ego was broken because she didn’t have the chance to dump him first. And then, her strong feminist friend actually approves her actions because she read his polite comment as “stinks of patriarchy (the abstract notion of men in the glass ceiling ruling the world, but fuck the glass bottom which is full of poor and homeless men because those do not suit our feminist agenda). How dare he brake up with you? But of course you are a strong and independent woman, you will not make a scene right? you are mature enough to accept the fact that all relationships (this was not even a relationship) end, just like everything else (even our lives)?

        • Rubicon, you sound fat. You also sound like you know far more of the details than what is published in the story. Why not just out yourself as the author?

          Who is being “being treated like a piece of meat” by going out for dinner and drinks? It’s a date. She even admits to staying out afterwards, so she hardly sounds traumatized by the veal piccata.

          Who is being “being treated like a piece of meat” by him being out of town (according to the story) and not being there for a self-indulgent princess’s party? Did she really need guest number 126? Only non-condo having peons have 125 at a birthday, but 126 makes it a GALA?

          If the sexts are so bad, like you assert, where are they? Fatty Pu-pu has no shame, so why not publish them? And being naughty/flirtatious is something adults do. Even a self-professed virgin should know that. If she didn’t like it, she should’ve said so. He seems clued in, and likely would’ve stopped. Again, who’s being used if she stays quiet?

          And using a calendar and the OP, i see that Saturday (which one would assume was the day of the 1-day wine trip scheduling) was the 21st, and then the break up came on the 24th? I’m hardly seeing the “suddenly” in the “about face” you’re attributing here. There’s neither smoke, nor fire here. Just your hysterical hand-wringing

          Your breathless offense at imaginary sins is no beacon of having a moral high ground. It just means that you’re an uptight twat who most people make polite excuses to get away from. In other words, you must be loads of fun at a party. Just like Pu-pee. :(

          • I get it, you don’t like her; that’s your right. I also get that strong, motivated women intimidate you; that’s unfortunate but your burden to bear.

            • Nah, hardly. I employ 15 in my current department and I respect the hell out of the good ones.

              But the boastful, arrogant and histrionic ones sure do annoy me! But I get that you’re not the sharpest knife in the rack, so I can understand your confusion.

    • Reading her blog I almost threw up. She sees men that show her interests as her “winning them over” like men are some kind of conquest for her to conquer and control. And when the man shows that he’s not been fully “won over” and conquered by her she gets pissed and takes radical measure to punish him. That is something no one has even mentioned. I agree with everything her “haters” say, but I would also like to add that she will always be a sad person for being so fond of herself.

    • read the words, he doesn’t necessarily ‘assume she wanted a relationship’ all he said was he doesn’t want a relationship.

  146. WOW…your lucky he even took your ugly fat ass on a date. That’s more then most men would

    Turning 16 more believable…….slightly

    Grow up and quit blogging and waste time at the gym instead

    @Enea77

  147. Get off your high horse. You’re not even pretty and the guy made the right decision. Why don’t you right another published book on how you are a whiny little girl that thinks she’s the shit and cries when a man doesn’t like her. Wahhh wahhh wahhhh….

  148. Trying to ruin this man’s career because you’re butt-hurt and stangry (stupid + angry) is just loathsome behavior. You owe him a sincere apology. Writing a nasty, vindictive blog post is one thing but sticking your nose into his career is just unconscionable. How would you feel if a man did that to you? And making nasty remarks about his nine year old daughter too? Wow, just an awful display of petty narcissism. You should be deeply ashamed of yourself.

    • If any man treated my daughter like this guy treated Miss Pu he would have a lot more to worry about than his taxpayer funded job. And she didn’t make nasty remarks about his daughter; the remarks were aimed directly at him.

        • That’s exactly my point… she went out with him twice and he was apparently sending sexually explicit pictures and asking her to go out of town for the weekend with him. When she said she’d only go on a day trip, he suddenly tells her his life is in flux (Translation: If I’m not getting into your pants, I’m done with you).

          • Then she should have told him, explicitly, to stop sending the images or she would report him to his agency. That’s what a mature adult does; they don’t write an unhinged text message,screencap cap and post it on her blog for the world to see. That is the behavior of a crazy person.

          • That’s his perogative. He doesn’t owe her anything. She chose to decline his original offer he chose to withdraw from the whole arrangement.

            She can be pissed off or not about it but he demonstrated decency in the way he terminated the discussions she responded by being an absolute prick.

            Seriously, trying to get the guy fired because he’s not that into her?.

            • Just to be clear, I’ve never defended her attempt to get the guy fired. I have stated that he was an idiot for sending sex messages to a woman that he’d only been on two dates with; if he gets fired for it, I won’t be able to muster any sympathy for him.
