Writer Publicly Shames Man Who Broke Up With Her By Text (After 2 Dates); Sends Messages To His Boss

October 10, 2013  |  


Any writer will tell you when a significant other has moved them, they will write about him or the relationship.  Such is true for Quin Woodward Pu. Yesterday, Pu appeared on the talk show “Bethenny” and recounted how a man she went on two dates with broke up with her via text, which in her mind was the ultimate no-no. Their relationship began in typical 20-something fashion at the bar. Pu stated on her site, The Little Black Blog:

“It all started two weeks ago, when I met some rando at a bar. We emailed later that weekend, and I met up for a few drinks, which eventually turned to dinner, and then champagne. We had relatively good chemistry. We had dinner the following weekend (as in, two days ago), and it was equally  fun. I invited him to my birthday party, which I’m holding this weekend for my closest 125 friends. He wouldn’t be in town, so he scheduled a weekend in Virginia wine country the following weekend. When we parted that day, I didn’t think much of anything. In fact, I actually headed out to a bar to meet up with a former lover from 2012, with whom I may or may not entertain a few exchanges here and there. #timesbeing.”

Though Pu comes across as your modern day Carrie Bradshaw, dating around and playing it cool until Mr. Right comes along, unfortunately she lost her cool when she received a text message the next day from her government-employed  beau telling her he didn’t want to see her anymore.

What appeared to be a nice, to-the-point text message enraged Pu for some reason. She wrote:

“I was stunned into paralysis. I had no words–this never happens–and I just felt short of breath. There were many things that pissed me off, but I was so flustered I couldn’t even articulate them. Again, this is a serious problem for a writer and effusive communicator.I was still so agitated 10 hours later that I had to leave opera rehearsal early. This is a serious no-no, given that opening night is Saturday at the Organization of American States.”

I understand as a woman Pu was upset at not being able to move further with a guy she was interested in, but the way she responded to his message and what she did with his messages will make you question if she even genuinely liked him — and if she’s nuts. She texted back:


Not only did Pu lose her mind with her text response, sent also sent the text message she exchanged with her ex-beau to his supervisors. Thankfully, no disciplinary action was taken — because why would it — but the guy was horribly embarrassed, and publicly so. If you read carefully,  you can see Pu projecting her true feelings. Hidden underneath all the sarcasm, it’s clear this news probably really did ruin Pu’s birthday and any hopes she had for a future relationship. What I want to know is how can someone you have only known for 20 hours have such an effect on you?

It seems Pu didn’t really get her feelings hurt but it was her ego that took a bruising. According to The Huffington Post, Pu claims she was not upset with being dumped via text. “She was actually just upset that the guy was “presumptuous” enough to think she could be broken up with.” Currently, the man who stirred this pot is still employed and Pu even claims he still keeps in touch with her. Yeah, we gave her the side-eye too.
