Thanks, Liesel. From my experience, acting scared does not help, acting
nice does not help, and plain hanging up doesn't help. I refuse to let
such a person have any effect on my life. Thus, I decided I was going to
have fun with it. I've adopted the tyrannical mother persona, the
religious fanatic persona, and the person on vacation from mental hospital
persona. I would advise any woman to not hesitate to be totally crazy,
disgusting, or aggressive whenever the situation calls for it. The point
is to be the one in control.
I think the private exchanging of phone numbers and addresses is good. If
anyone needs my info., let me know. If I don't give it to you, then you
know I think you're a wacko. :o)
