Remember Matt??

Yesterday, when I logged on, I was very surprised to see an email waiting for me from Matt.

I haven’t heard from him since that cold day back in February when we met in a bar and I told him that I didn’t want to see him anymore and his response was less than pleasant. Since then, I have done a very good job at putting him out of my mind. I’ll admit it hasn’t been easy but I can honestly say that in the last month or so, I have hardly thought of him at all.

I nearly didn’t open the email but of course, curiosity got the better of me. Here’s what he had to say:

Hey there, it's been ages since I've been in touch I know, so have decided to rectify the situation! How the hell are you? Work still busy?

I suspect you are still looking super amazing, and with the sun out all the time at the moment, I bet you are driving the guys in the office wild with your summer wardrobe!

Trust you are still singing. I’ve decided to give it a miss for a while but I'll be along to help out at the shows if I’m still needed.

Hope the family are cool, anyway, curious to hear how you are. I think I'm just about holding up without you, but I better not go down that road or you’ll tell me off again, so I'll say ta ra!

What the hell is that about?? What is the point of this email??

I sat for ages looking at the screen trying to come up with a suitable reply that conveyed a friendly tone but nothing that suggested any desire to return to how things were. But then realised that actually, I think he’s a tosser and I don’t see why I should try and be friendly because I don’t want to get drawn back into his stupid games.

So, I deleted it !


  1. yep, that one goes back in the fish pond...good for you!

  2. I think he's a tosser too! He WAS trying to drag you back in...and not very subtle about it either. Personally I'd block his emails from now on.

  3. Totally right response. Delete and don't reply. It's the kindest way of letting him know where you are and staying truthful to yourself. He's merely chancing his arm - let it fall on deaf ears. Sorry. That's an appalling mixed metaphor.

  4. Good on you, Selina! You'd made your mind up once before and he should accept that decision.

  5. Well done. If only we could all be so decisive and brave. I wouldn't be, I know that for sure.

  6. A rather pathetic attempt from him at fishing - on the lines of "never venture, never gain". Deleting it is the mature solution. Eventually he'll learn...

  7. Good for you! I'm glad you deleted it. I think you deserve so much better and you've just proved that by raising the bar.


  8. Totally right course of action, gotta love that 'delete' button! Delete is your friend! :-)

  9. Excellent course of action. Presumably you then emptied your trash?

  10. Awesome!! I had a dude that play games like that with me. Sending me e-mails and stuff...I finally got the courage to block him from my e-mail account.

    Plus, a guy said "summer wardrobe?" LMAO!!! Talk about passion killers! xD

  11. You did the right thing with the tosser
