A man (and I use this term lightly) contacted me via anonymous E-mail last night / this morning, and this is how it went:

I figured that my "thanks, but no thanks" would suffice, but he turned nasty. I actually let this punk of a mean-spirited person hurt my feelings enough that I cried. It's hard for me not to justify his comments with a response of my own... but, I won't stoop.

Your right! You belong in a straight jacket anyway! Not to mention that when you fell out of the ugly tree, you hit every branch on the way down!
40 and never married? No wonder................
I bet children and dogs don't like you either!
I would never bother hating you and I see why nobody would love you!
** Though I think I hide my occassional feelings of self-dislike quite well, there's often something that creeps up that makes it harder to hide. This would be one of those "somethings." Friends and family wonder why I am less than thrilled with being single, having no relationship potential in sight, and never married at 39... they don't understand why it's such a drag for me. Unfortunately, this man's opinion isn't all that unusual... and it hurts. **
