So I have a confession; apologies for the length, I just need to get this off my chest. Me and a mun became mutuals (they followed me first which tbh hardly happens in my case considering how private I make myself out to be). They initiated interaction between us, they wanted to plot, they even wanted to be ‘friends’. I was ecstatic, because I’m never on the receiving end of this kind of attention. They send in tons of asks, by the bulk, I respond in kind, we exchange discords (which admittedly was a mistake; I’m too nice and easily swayed by someone being nice to me. Stupid, I know). About a month later, they go AWOL. Their discord is deleted, and eventually they remake their blog. We hit it up again, and all is fine. Then they go AWOL again, this time wordlessly deleting their blog.
Out of curiosity, I check up on their URL, which strangely enough, always had a green dot next to it. This url is, again, deleted, then brought back up; long story short, a new blog of a different muse follows me on my new blog… then blocks me literally not ten minutes later after messaging them asking for their rules. Me being absolutely anxious, check up on this blog (I know, I know. That’s no bueno. I know,) and basically I realize this person is the very same person that went AWOL. Their writing was exactly the same. I was hurt, and severely annoyed.
I sent them a long message via their other url, the one that suspiciously always seemed active when the new blog was also active; I vented as politely as I could. Let out my feelings and wished them to never inflict that kind of nonsense onto someone else with the promise of a ‘friendship’. I then blocked both blogs, and recently a new one that may nor or may not be them.
I guess part of me wonders what exactly went wrong. If I had said something offensive or distasteful to them, they never let me know; in fact, they just kept sending me asks and wanting to plot with me before abruptly deleting their blog that second time. I don’t understand. The worst part about this is that this isn’t the first time this kind of situation has happened to me. Not the exact situation, but definitely close enough.
Why do people do this? Why do people string you along and be all happy-go-lucky with you only to just cut you off? I will die on the hill of ‘nobody owes you anything’, I get that, I abide by that… but I don’t string someone along like this. Why? Why do you show interest at all? Just… don’t.
