On Sulkowicz’s birthday, Nungesser sends Sulkowicz a message:
oh hai happy born day you better be celebrating muchos, no? donde estas tu i mi viva – see i’m so desperate with out you, i even try to speak spanish – anywho: merry happy days
She responds the next morning:
I love you Paul. Where are you?!?!?!?!
Nungesser claims they start to drift apart; they see each other at meetings and parties, but plans to get together alone never come to anything. Nungesser says he assumed it was simply a matter of hanging out with a new crowd and, due to Sulkowicz being in a new relationship. He claims the drift is:
Very amiable; nothing was changed or different or weird or anything in her behavior.
