Am I overreacting here, or is this dude doing what I think he is? (Note: I've had many men send crypticish messages because it's the only way they think we will respond).

  • I'm betting that you're the kind of guy who sends cryptic messages to women in the hopes that it will get our attention. Consider mine gotten: you're getting blocked.
  • We're not toys for you to play with, treat us like humans.

For clarification: This is the godknowswhatnumber in a series of OKC messages I've gotten from men who just send me cryptic, vague, or one word messages. They're not interesting enough on their own to send a message that catches my attention, so they hope they'll confuse me into responding. I'm not okay with that. Engage me as a person, or leave me alone.
