Thanks for sharing that story, Mary.

Thank you for your response. This was a difficult experience to write about because I often think I should have answered this man’s calls. I _should_ have been interested. And because I didn’t and wasn’t I was perceived as being a tease. Or a “ball-breaker” It was hurtful because even my sisters thought I was being too tough on this poor guy. But on the other hand if I was a man and some woman tried to talk to me all night at some random party then called me multiple times I would be totally safe in saying — back off, stalker” and then relating to my friends what a crazy bitch she was. This double standard baffles me.
