if:

you and the other person were both friends for a year on social media.

no physical stuff, only talking on website.

on a scale of 1-10, 10 being best friends. you both were considered a 4-5.

the misinterpeted person automatically calls you a creep in front of everyone on site, no questions asked.

the misinterpeted person sends e-mail to you not to talk to them again.

You can't...

Maybe you said something to creep the person out. Honestly, there isn't a way. This person has made up their mind about you, and there's nothing you can do to change it.

Depending on how badly you want to rectify the situation, you might consider utilizing a third party, perhaps a common friend to relay information to this other person if it truly is 100% misinformation. One would wonder why the person rejecting you isn't calling to clarify but at a 4 out 10 friendship, why bother.

Let it go. Most who read it, won't remember.

I try to avoid being a creep in the first place.

Just let it go!
Stuff like this is easily forgotten unless you make a big deal out of it.
It happens so often online that it's borderline troll-baiting.

Let it go!
People won't even remember this one month from now.

you're probably right in that it'll never be the same. but if i were able to tell them my side of what it really meant then i could at least let them think about they're own actions towards me.

it's not misinformation everything is facts, it's just misinterpeted. and i have no idea why this person wouldn't ask to clarify because the relationship was solid before the post i made. the reasons why i would want to speak to them are because of our history as friends, and that they supported me in times when no one else did, althroughout the one year relationship. i'll consider your advice though, thanks.

Exactly. Stop doing what made them think you were a creep.
