Earlier this week, we learned a lot from Julian Assange’s OkCupid profile: Namely, what not to write. But Assange’s dating life is the didactic gift that keeps on giving. Today’s lesson: How To Not Behave After A Bar Hookup.
When Julian was 33 and studying in Melbourne, Australia, he had a memorable night with a 19-year-old girl he met at a bar. The two conversed, and then kissed, but the girl wasn’t that into him.
This is where most guys would sort of, you know, let it be. But not Julian Assange! He creepily FOUND THE GIRL’S PHONE NUMBER and called her. She was naturally freaked out, and acted cold. But this didn’t deter our young(ish?) hero, who sent her the following email:
Nice, right? When she didn’t immediately apologize, he sent her THIS:
Are you shuddering yet? It gets worse.
Julian called, AGAIN, and this time the girl pretended not to be home. But he STILL didn’t take a hint.
The emails continue, and continue, and continue, getting increasingly weirder and more persistent.
The Lesson: Take a hint. The first time.
