I have a great big question about. . . - Page 3

No, I am not going to date him. I can't explain it, but it feels wrong. I think it's him, but it may be the timing.

I went to a fun small party and then to a bookstore/coffeeshop and stole some recipes there from a cookbook.

Do I need to reply to him and tell him why?

Go with your feelings mama

Did you just blow him off or let him know you couldnt make it to karaoke?

I think it's nice to let someone know you're not interested.

I know when I've dated people, I HATE the situations that are left hanging. It seems like simple courtesy to let someone know you're no longer interested. After a really bad date, I simply email and say something like, "You seem like a really nice person, but I just don't feel a connection."

At least then, they know.

I agree, letting him know would be the polite thing to do. Be honest too, that way you're not leaving him hanging and he will most likely leave you alone.

the dreaded conversation

my friends and i call it the "thanks but no thanks" conversation. i think it's necessary. "we're just not a match" - dating is about trying people on and deciding if they are a fit. good luck!

Must laugh b/c I joined that one also and am getting flirts from guys 40-61 years old : I'd say 90% of my flirts are from that age range (for those who don't know I'm 21, look like I'm 16). I did get one today from a cutie I think he's 30, so not too old. He's a police officer, has 3 kids (9, 6, and 3) and *only* lives 2 hours away We've sent a few messages today

I dodged the call when he was supposed to call back and give directions.

I will email him.

Don't you just hate that 'dreaded conversation'? at least you usually don't know the person IRL , at least w/ internet dating. At my age though, I just don't care as much

Yeah, I have never let someone down gracefully. Ever. Of course, I have not been much of a dater.

Great practice!

Summer in NH, Pranamama? Seacoast, men in shorts and hiking boots? College towns? MMMMM

I did send the email. It is below:


I am likely going to deep six the xxxx profile. I have come to the conclusion that I am not ready for dating, and my involvement or lack thereof at the moment would not serve my counterpart well.

Thank you for your kind gesture and compliment. Have fun with karaoke.

fondly,

xxxxx

I met my husband on the internet in 1997 and we met after 5 months and married a few years later,we are now getting divorced,but I think that it was really no different then meeting someone in the local area,I dated guys from local areas and you really don't know a person until you live with them.Now I have my Ali,who I met on the internet too,we will meet this summer and we have gotten serious,he wants to marry me and wants me to come and live in Holland with him while he studies and works there with his job,then we would come back to the USA and he would work here.But I feel like I know him really well,we talk on the phone and internet every day,he calls and talks to my mother and she just loves him too.I pray that it all works out,but that is with any relationship.I have met some local guys,but they just aren't what I am looking for.This guy is the one for me,so I am going to do it and be with him.I think there are pros and cons in any dating situation,with the internet you just get to meet people you wouldn't get to meet if it was just local area.

Paloma that is a fine email. We don't call it a seacoast over here, that sounds so much more fine! expecially with those adornments
