I’m being kind of stalked right now. Not in a scary way, but in an annoying way. A guy that I had a dalliance with many years ago has made a career change from bartender to candidate for a rather high position in state government. A few months ago he messaged me on Friendster, alerting me to his campaign and checking in on how I was. Ever since then, I’ve been included on his campaign’s mailing list and the emails have not stopped. Nearly everyday I am reminded of how he is a real Democrat for change, but what I’m really reminded of is how I once took him to Banana Republic to help him pick out shoes to wear when he saw his ex-girlfriend again. I am alerted to the five new endorsements he has received, but the real alert is the subtle nausea I feel over the fact that he was uncut. Here is the problem — even though I want the guy to win because his intentions seem good, I desperately want to be deleted from his mailing list so the bad memories from my single life go away. But how can I do that without seeming cruel… or like a bad Democrat? Any advice?
