    help - more Russian needed

    Okay, here's the deal: I have been dating a Russian and he really pissed me off and disapointed me and I want to send him an angry email in Russian. I know, I know, could I be more dramatic?

    Anyway, The header should be "You Suck" and the text should be a loose translation of "How can you be such a (jerk, asshole, coward)? If you can help me out, please also respond with the english translation so I know what I am sending.

    Thanks

    Header: Вы сосёте

    Body: Как Вы можете быть таким (толчок, жопа, трус)? Если Вы можете мне помогать, пожалуйста также ответьте английским переводом, таким образом я знаю то, что я посылаю.

    Спасибо

    The direct translation is incorrect here.
    My variant:
    Header: Ты придурок.(It means sort of "you're a jerk" because "you suck" can't be translated directly)
    Text: Как ты можешь быть таким козлом (трусом - if you want to say coward).
    But I hope someone will offer a more vivid variant. I'm not good with this stuff. But even more than that I hope that you'll choose to solve it in a more civil way. Good luck.

    How about .......Как ты можешь быть таким большым голобым трусом? ...Дрочила! ????
    How can you be such a big gay coward? ...Wanker!!

    or do you think that Дрочила should be in the Instrumental Case here?

    If he doesn't care about you, he'll just laugh. I guess it's not what you want. If he does care about you... Well, it's not what you want either, is it?

    Here's the deal: anything you write will sound pathetic. I can help you sound more pathetic if you wish so. Otherwise, don't write anything, silent treatment will do just fine.

    How do you know? Maybe he'll think it is cute and want her back. Or maybe he will get turned on by the thought of being abused by a woman. Just give her a nice selection of insults to slag at him and let her take it from there.
