You made it clear you wanted to talk and I offered you the opportunity, as I would like to talk to you as well. I would not be lying to say that not a day has gone by in the past 18 months that I haven’t thought of you. The conditions I requested are not onerous and are for my protection. You have not proven to be someone I can trust with my physical safety.
The offer is still on the table, same terms, though the available dates have changed, especially since I realize you may not be able to get away during the weekend. You can pick any day between 4/18-4/27. I need at least 72hrs notice to be able to make the date.
You initiated contact and I responded. I give you the opportunity to get what you asked for, and your response is inexplicably violent and obtuse (hawk and sparrow game???).
You need to understand my role in your life has changed. I’m not an escort you’re buying, you can find plenty of those all over Houston, Austin, or Dallas. The terms of any relationship between us henceforth are going to be different and the lunch is a starting point. If you want my respect, it has to be earned. You have worked very hard at destroying the genuine affection I once had for you, that I know you saw in my eyes. If those are things you truly want, you’re the one who has to change your current direction and take the first step.
I think the lunch will be illuminating for both of us.
