You're my hero

One of my roommates broke up with his girlfriend over email recently. He was immensly proud of his letter so shared it with us, and so now it's shared with the world :) Miles (he was proud enough to not want to hide his name) says if you know him this isn't unusual and if you know her you know she deserved worse. Anyway, for your reading pleasure, how to tell someone you don't like them.
Hey, sorry, I haven't had time. There was a list of things I was going to say. Things that have been running through my mind for quite some time now. I was trying to come up with some way to say it all. But upon reflection I thought better of. You don't listen to people, and you're not going to start now.

It's been fun. I don't need to discuss anything with you. There's little if anything that you could say to make me feel better about how you've treated me. I've felt like the last thing on you're list of priorities, if I was there at all. I don't blame you, you're busy, and you don't even make friends a priority. Still, it's a pity how well you treat those around you.

I understand only too well why you'd lose interest. My opening can be good, but my midgame falls to pieces. I also definitely misread you. I saw a glimmer of potential in you as a person, even ignoring every part of me that told me otherwise. Sadly, I was wrong. It was foolish to believe that someone who likes to think that people are drawn to her for positive reasons would ever give time to someone who actually was. I only wish I could have told you what I saw when I looked at you. I could see through the facades, the foolish behavior, and ridiculous manner. I really thought I could learn from you and you could show me life from a different perspective.

So I say goodbye. And I hope you find what you're looking for.


And for the record, this was her response.
I have to say this is the most insulting email I've ever gotten.
