Some Things Never Change

Well, I have a number of ads posted on a number dating sites and occasionally I get some interesting responses. But they never turn out…so, it's with trepidation that I read their responses and offer anything in return.

Today I noticed that a gentleman had visited my profile on a number of occasions. So I wrote him a quick note….and said "Hello. Just a note to say I like your profile. It resonated because I was married…..blah…blah….blah…so it has been slow going."

"Good Guy" responded by saying "We do have a lot in common. I'm not sure that we'd be compatible dating or as partners, but a new friend is always nice. Let me know."

So, I responded, with "What are you looking for?" (Keep in mind that I did not say anything to him that even hinted I was interested romantically. I had just told him that most folks on that particular site were looking for the next best thing between the sheets….and that I was looking for a whole lot more……and it is slow going."

"Good Guy" responded again saying "What am I looking for in terms of friends, or partners? The former: wide open. The latter, obviously a bit pickier and I don't think you and I would be a good match on that score."

I responded: "You certainly have a way with words. Based upon your emails I certainly agree with your assessment with one addition: I don't' think we'd be good friends. I'm picky too. Have a great day!"


Now do you see why I've learned to be content in my life as it is?

Sounds like he was being very up-front, and not being a dick at all.

interests are interests, and at least he let you know up front his feelings.
