Not even sorry for this one.
Wow. This boy’s sense of ENTITLEMENT to this girl, even after she has made it BLATANTLY AND DELIBERATELY clear that she doesn’t want to date him is actually really predatory.
1. He forced himself to be her partner when she didn’t want to and then tried to pressure her into going to his house, which she was CLEARLY uncomfortable with.
2. He gives her an uncomfortable amount of romantic gifts, which she clearly does not want.
3. He corners her at a dance, making her so uncomfortable that she has to LEAVE THE DANCE to avoid him.
4. Another over the top gift in an attempt to coerce her into spending time with him- which she has made clear she is uncomfortable with. BUT he has made it clear that he gets angry if she doesn’t accept his gifts, so she takes it and tries to use it in a way that won’t force her to be alone with this asshole.
This girl is not a dick. this girl has been harassed by some asshole entitled boy who can’t see that his behavior is inappropriate.
I’ve seen this post go around about two times before and each time I’m appalled by the people who feel sorry for this complete and utter jackass who harassed and stalked the poor girl and and then publicly shamed her for not finding his gross ass attractive. None of this is romantic. It’s terrifying and unimaginably creepy on so many levels.It actually makes me sick that entitled little shitballs like this exist in the world
When she said “wish boys weren’t such dicks” she was probably inferring Toby Walters as one of them. Granted, we may never know the full story: maybe Zoey took advantage of Toby’s affection, maybe she actually told him several times “no” (or implied it enough) and he never got the hint, OR she literally thought he was just being a nice FRIEND. It’s quite obvious however that he put her on a pedestal and wasted half of his life chasing after someone who obviously wasn’t who he deluded himself into believing she was.
Guys, I know it sounds scary, but don’t beat around the bush by pretending to be our friends when you obviously want something more. Fucking tell us ladies straight up. If we say no, then you have an answer and you can move on with your life. “No” does not mean “try harder” either. Move the fuck on. Otherwise you’re a creeper and yeah we will start acing like dicks to you because you’re literally scaring us and refusing to take a hint. Sometimes we don’t even know you like us in the first place! We’re not mind readers! Nice and friendly just means you’re nice and friendly, plain and simple. And even if you act all nice and friendly doesn’t mean we’re going to spread our legs for you. You’re the one carrying all this UST around, not us. It’s not up to us to decipher every meaning behind your every action: we certainly don’t owe you anything.
Young love sucks but you got grow a spine or no one’s gonna be happy.
they’re both dicks. she never communicated with him in a direct manner (c’mon, guys don’t pick up on hints. it’s how they operate). and he sort of stalked her. both are guilty of dickery. case closed.
