My reaction was... that works?
That, and, "holy horsefeathers, this person is seriously messed up." Between that and the weird separation of "Ryan" like that's an actual other person in the apology, this is some serious sociopath horsefeathers going on.
That said, we're reading it in a super condensed form, so it seems like it jumped from "chatting with rando sports dude online" to "sending him nudes because he's making weird threats" in no time at all. "Ryan" was grooming all of these women to be able to do stuff like this; putting in the work and the time to seem like their friend and a good guy, before seemingly consciously starting to twist the screws and slowly escalating treating them horsefeathers before jumping to, "I'm going to hurt myself or worse unless you give me what I want." This woman is messed up, especially to be doing this so drawn out and thoughtfully as a TEENAGER.
