I’m suing a woman for $2.2 million because she won’t date me

Don’t let the fear of withdrawing keep you from playing the game, but don’t continue if you land in the friend zone either..

A man in Singapore has filed two lawsuits against a woman who refused to date him – claiming she caused him ’emotional trauma’ after telling him she only wanted to be friends.

The man – identified as K. Kawshigan – threatened to sue Nora Tan when she rejected him, but initially put the trial on hold after she agreed to attend counseling sessions with him – which she did for a year and a half, according to Singapore news site the Straits Times.

When Tan – who met Kawshigan, director of drone company D1 Racing, in 2016 – continued to reject her romantic advances and eventually cut off contact with him, he filed both lawsuits.

A lawsuit has been filed in high court with a claim of $2.3 million, for allegedly causing “damage to his stellar reputation” and “trauma, depression and impact” on his life. He filed a second lawsuit in a district court, seeking $16,700 in damages for breaking an agreement to improve their relationship after she stopped attending counseling sessions, according to sources. court documents obtained by Channel News Asia.

The latter lawsuit was later dismissed by Deputy Clerk Lewis Tan, who reportedly called the lawsuit “grossly baseless and baseless” and said the court would not be complicit in Kawshigan’s “calculated attempt to compel the commitment” from Tan.

The court ruled the two had been friendly after meeting in 2016, but their friendship broke down in 2020 after there was a misunderstanding over the nature of their relationship – with Kawshigan believing it was romantic .

While Tan believed they were friends, Kawshigan considered her his “closest friend” and was dismayed when she felt the need to take a step back from their social interactions and encouraged him to be “self-reliant. “. This prompted him to send her a letter alleging “monetary damages resulting from the negligent infliction of emotional distress and possible defamation” and to continue the lawsuit.

Tan filed a harassment suit against Kawshigan in April last year and stopped attending counseling sessions. In response, Kawshigan continued to contact her, allegedly hinting at the potential lawsuit in the text messages. She completely cut off contact with him on May 19.

Kawshigan launched the High Court lawsuit against Tan in July, claiming she told third parties he had harassed her, which caused damage to her “stellar reputation”, as well as “trauma, depression and impacts” on his life.

The magistrates’ complaint, now dismissed, was filed in August.

The judgment, delivered on Saturday, said Tan, “after years of massaging the plaintiff’s displeasure, finally decided to resist his threats rather than cower and give in to his demands.”

The trial in the High Court is set for a case conference on February 9.
