*** I'm need to get this off my chest so I can feel better about my situation.
I found out two days ago that one of my two pen-pals was only interested in my money, and as soon as we finished talking about how odd it was that he expected me to send any, there hasn't been a reply since. I know I should feel happy that I'm not wasting any more time on someone that doesn't care about me as a person or pen-pal, but it kind of hurts knowing I was led on to believe he was a friend. Also, I did send him a birthday card, but he never even thanked me for it, so... ouch. His loss, right? I'm just mad at the fact that he has my number and my mailing address (since I usually stick with JPay)... lol. I'm trying not to blame myself, but since I didn't follow the whole "Tell them you aren't a bank!" advice, I feel like I'm at fault. It's as if my company wasn't good enough for him. You live and you learn, I guess.
But how do I move on from feeling bad about the situation? Has anyone been through the abrupt ending of correspondence with no closure? Has anyone dealt with a pen-pal trying to use you for money?
