Here is your revised letter:
I wanted to apologize once again for our conversation last Wednesday night. I know I caught you off guard and realized later, that I really came off 'creepy'. There may be nothing I can do to repair your impression of me at this point, but I just wanted to explain the situation a little more. The way we left things has really upset me and I hate that you think of me in such a negative light, especially as it could not be further from the truth. I was having such a nice time getting to know you and it breaks my heart to know that I upset you the way I did.
To briefly explain more about my interest in that case, let me just say I did a very poor job of explaining how and why it happened. When I worked in San Francisco, my company was located one hour away from where the victim, Annie Le, grew up. The story was a huge local story and when it went national, my whole company was talking about it. This is where I got caught up, along with my coworkers, in the mystery of what happened and why. We were all playing armchair detective to some extent, and in doing so, we got to know the details of the case as we watched it play out in the national media. I used the term obsession to describe my interest in the case, but I did not mean that literally; I was just casually referring to my following of the case, and my coworkers and I talking about it. We all became true crime junkies. When I used the term "crush" to describe my sympathy for the victim, I of course did not mean that literally. Annie Le was very sympathetic as a victim, and the crime was such a tragedy, that we all felt terrible for everyone involved. That is all I meant. I did not in any way mean to imply some literal crush I might have on her, or imply I had some perverted fantasy concerning her. Annie Le being killed 5 days before her wedding was a horrible tragedy, so it was hard not to feel for the her as a victim and sadness for and her family; everyone felt this way. The mystery and our interest was born out of who killed her and why. Everyone had theories, and it was of course a huge story in the news. My coworkers and I were not alone in our following of the case and I was no different, nor more or less interested then thousands of other people. I did a terrible job of communicating all this last Wednesday, and I was so caught off guard once I realized I upset you, I didn't know what to do.
None of this excuses me for inadvertently upsetting you, as I did, but I just wanted to reiterate that I am not a dangerous guy and I do not have any perverted ideas concerning this case; in addition, I definitely do not have any issues concerning Annie Le being Asian and you or anyone else I would date, being Asian. Please remember that Yo, my girlfriend in San Francisco before the crime happened, is Asian, so I would not need to date you or anyone else to fulfill some creepy fantasy I might have of dating an Asian woman. That is not who I am. I was dating you solely because I really thought you were cool and interesting to hang out with, you love movies and tennis, and you are attractive and smart. I enjoyed your company a unique individual.
I have never lied to you or given you a reason not to trust me. I am very honest. I may put my foot in my mouth on occasion, but I do not lie.
I am sorry for this long message, but I really wanted to clean up things one more time and explain some of what happened because it was really hurting me that you left with such a terrible and incorrect idea of who I was. The idea that maybe you thought I had misled you in some way was haunting me. The Chris you thought I was before that awful conversation is the real me. I was not hiding anything and I don't have skeletons in my closet.
I really hope you will give me a chance to talk to you again, but I will not keep bothering you with long confessions. I am not a stalker. I was, however, really excited to talk about the US Open and to share movie news. If something especially cool happens I may text you a link of some gossip I come across, i.e. like Ben Affleck being cast as Batman. I know you may or may not respond.
I really loved getting to know you Sherry, and I am so sorry for that one dreadful miscommunication that derailed things.
Please let me know if you need any further help with this or if you would like me to change any of the wording. I hope it is to your satisfaction.
It is very heartfelt and sincere! : )
