I need ideas on how to word an email to an old boyfriend who recently tried to contact me.  I want the response to be polite, but cool. 

 

I don't know what his intentions are.  He says he wants to "reconnect".  Could be platonic, but probably not.

 

Thanks!

So you don't wait to "reconnect"?

Hey, Joe

So nice to hear from you and glad you are well. Everything here is great and I am enjoying being busy farming and picking flowerssmile.gif Insert what is relavent. 

Listen , it might be nice to reconnect on some level but right now is not a good time for me. Let me give you a shout out when things calm a bit.

Love,

 

Anyone else have ideas??

Let us know how it turned out.

I agree. I was contacted last year by someone I don't want a relationship with, and I just didn't respond. They haven't contacted me again.
