Hey Dan

How you been mate? How's the body transformation going? Good to see you're going to up the weights.

You seem to be coming back frequently with what to respond with in relation to her texts.

If I remember, during the M you were the go to guy to get stuff sorted. You're not that man any more though.

Again, I would either ignore her, or just give her a phone number of someone who can help. Do you need her to do anything that is a joint enterprise in wrapping things up? If so, tell her what needs doing when you reply ie "Here's Tom the glazier's phone number. BTW, please sort out X, Y and Z and let me know when it's done. Regds, D35". Keep flipping the script.

If you want to be cheeky, next time an sms like this comes through, respond within a few minutes and say "I'm busy at the gym. I'll get back to you when I can.".

I interpret "I need" as her trying to boss you around. Don't let that happen mate.

Cheers, D
