me: hey, thanks for the stars – very flattering. how are you? nice profile. did you vote yet?
random dude: Hey, sorry for the slow response, but I think I’m not emotionally available right now. Thought that I was when I clicked your profile (which is very nice, by the way) the other day, but… not yet. Sorry ping you too early. Maybe later. Good luck.
Well then. Thanks for “letting me down gently and wishing me good luck”. Reality check: you contacted me. Back away from the internet, buddy.
