Dating rejection message
If they don’t work out — which is always a possibility — I hope I can contact you again. Men are so unaccustomed to getting treated with this level of honesty and respect, they will love you for it, and you will absolutely be able to go back to them in the future — even if they were, technically, your “second choice”As for your second query, you’re making it much more complicated than it needs to be.
My second question is about saying no/rejecting people. I know what I am supposed to do – spit it out, be direct – but I really, really wish there was a less uncomfortable way to do it (men have it easy, all they have to do is not call). Really, I hate to toot my own horn about my embarrassingly vast online dating experience, but, well, TOOT TOOT! You want to act with integrity and be nice, but not hurt anybody’s feelings. Most people, men and women, have no interest in hurting anyone passively or actively.
When I was actively online, I had the same situation.
I would keep my profile active though because I didn’t want the guys I was getting to know, to think I was getting to serious.
You can probably finesse the wording a little bit: It’s been really great getting to know you, but I have to tell you the truth: I started to see a guy and things are getting a little more serious.
So I’m going to hide my profile on for now and see where things go.
If you find that online dating has overtaken your life and you have no control of your own schedule, you’re doing it wrong. Learn to screen guys better and make email and phone into a fun challenge for them and you can have as many or as few dates a week as you want.
