I sometimes receive an anonymous ask in Tumblr. I’m not famous but I do have several inquiries. I used it several times to ask something I particularly ashamed of acknowledging, mostly regarding Young Adult Literature but nothing more than that. Yes, I used it to ask about Harry Potter and The Hunger Games, if you’re still wondering.
So after I wrote something about strawberries, I received an anonymous ask about picking strawberries in Germany and I thought how nice and then I found out who wrote it.
I don’t know how to describe the feeling.
One time, I received an anonymous number on my mobile. We texted. He said that he’s interested in me and would like to know more about me. This raised a great big red flag. I came from a girls’ school and I have no communication with boys that are apt to my knowledge so I am aware that I might be involved in a scam. Later, I found out that the number belonged to a (female) friend and she’s texting me just for fun.
I think the feelings resurfaced. It must be fun to coax people to believe something like that. She laughed but the trust is gone and was replaced with the kind of loathing that you wish you don’t know in the first place. Her Just Kidding is my Just Fucking Go To Hell and Die.
I don’t sugar-coat, sorry.
I don’t do that to people and I do not wish to know anyone who did the same thing, especially to me. Good intentions or bad. Whatever your intentions might be, the end doesn’t justify the means.
I bet it’s fun to break people’s trust like this.
