First I want to say that chat programs are great. I am using both ICQ and MSN and I have met great people so far. With some of them I am talking almost daily, with some less, maybe weekly, and with others even more less. I have also met some people in reality and some friendships still last.
Anyway, something very annoying happens to me right now. I got contacted by someone who so far still has not told me her real name (I didn't ask though because I'm not even interested a bit ). It is a 23-year old girl living in Germany who is originally from Mongolia and is working as an aupair in Germany. So the conversation started with a "hello" from her and a answered with a "hello" back. So usually if you contact someone, you present yourself a bit (who you are, what you do etc.) but nothing happened. So...i was busy anyway and did not write to her for a few minutes. So she starts to ask quite rude why I do not write to her! I mean come on! It's on her to keep the conversation up! So I think she got this and then "forced" me to talk to her for about an hour. Whenever I did not answer within five seconds she ask why I would not answer her...VERY annoying! So I decided to leave the chat. Nice as I am I told her goodbye and stuff but then she got rude to me again and told me I would only leave the chat because I would not like her etc. (hell, how right she was! ). Uff, so I open the chat the next day and guess who is online there!!! I go oh nooo and switched myself to "user is currently away". She did not care about that and wrote stuff until I needed to answer. Again a forced conversation and then again I needed 20 minutes to explain her why I needed to leave (it was late and I wanted to go to bed). I open the chat this morning and there are again messages from her, where I was and why I would not be online and stuff. So this evening I get online (because I wanted to talk with some nice people there)...guess who is there!?! I say shit and wanted to leave but within five seconds she is writing to me. Then she says: "Now I am going to call you, give me your number!" Please note that she did not ASK for it. She said: I AM GOING TO CALL YOU. Damn, how lucky I was not to give her my number. So she asks me to call her (she obviously did not get that I have not the slightest interest in her). Also she told me I need to visit her (I said no and then needed to explain to her why, god damn it). I then told her that I will leave the chat (and again needed to explain her ten times why I would do so...).
So people- what advice can you give me? If I delete her on ICQ then she still writes me because she saved me. So I am afraid of going online (which is not good because I want to talk with my real friends there). Anyone with similar experiences?
