Madonna-whore complex (Merrick)


Note: my best friend Merrick is diving in the unfathomable dark depths of dating over thirty and recently got this email.

i do appreciate the call and your apology about your behavior. but now, i really have to thank you for the head trip on top of everything else. so, you're "just not into it." that's great. thanks for pursuing me from the beginning, thanks for texting me while my ex was in town, for wanting to spend every night in my bed, for telling me how much i turn you on, for explaining that your hesitancy is because you want to take things slow. what the fuck, Merrick? you were doing all this because you think you should be attracted to me? because i'm nice and you respect me and you think i'm the kind of person you should want to be with? what kind of fucked up shit is that? i can't believe that even though i am now telling you to get lost, i have to end up feeling rejected by you. that just completelysucks. i wasn't even looking for this.

i honestly think you have a drinking problem and a madonna-whore complex. you should consider therapy.
