Dating & Friendship for the Over 40s...

Thanks for your email, but I do not think we are a match ;-)

I logged on to the Mature Free and Single website and instantly saw that a guy who I would like to get   to know was online. I had added him to my favorite’s ages ago and he had sent me a quick email saying thanks for the fave tag. I quickly sent one back saying you’re welcome and asked him what he thought to the site. He responded a day later saying It’s great; Then nothing more.

I did not want to seem too pushy and believe me I had no desire to embarrass him or myself for that matter. But omg he was so lovely. He was also an avid diary writer but there are only so many times that you can send a message saying that I enjoyed the diary entries that he had put on the site.

I sat and pondered for a while thinking, should I just give up on him because he may not be interested or should I think of another angle. Chewing my pen I decided that I would try one last thing and that was to write an entry in my diary titled Thanks for your email, but I don’t think we are a match, so I wrote the following.

“Online dating can be a bit difficult because we can’t always tell if we appeal to the object of our desire. When we see someone’s photograph and profile we can quickly tell if there is some sort of attraction but if it is obvious that there isn’t then how hard is it to reply, sending a polite email simply saying thanks for your email, but I do not think we are a match!”

I clicked send and it was gone waiting for approval before becoming live on the site.  I was reading through the other diary entries online when I received an email saying my entry had been accepted and was now online.

Fairly quickly I started getting emails from some members some of which were cheeky saying so when are we meeting up then? I smiled to myself and replied quickly. Thanks for your email, but I do not think we are a match.  I had to giggle at the guy at 82 who lived 400 miles away because he obviously had a good sense of humor.

Then I noticed that I had received an email from the guy who I fancied who had written “Hi that’s a great diary entry regarding thanks but no thanks, it can be difficult letting people down gently” then he went on to say “that he just tried to be polite and hoped that people would get the message and realize that he was not interested in taking it any further”.

I quickly sent him a reply saying thank you for taking the time to reply I know I have sent you a few email regarding your entries too. I also went on to say that I had hoped that we had connected in some way and pressed the send button.

Shortly after he replied saying “thanks for your email, but I do not think we are a match”!!!!

I had to smile but at least I knew that he was not interested….. Onwards and upwards
