I like to say something subtle like "I enjoyed meeting you but I'm just not feeling the vibe I was hoping for"

Okay, guys, I have a simple request:

If you're not interested, do right by the lady and tell her! Ignoring her calls and texts is a crappy, immature, and gutless thing to do. Ladies, the same goes for you.

It's better to be upfront and possibly friends after than to just be a prick :)

people have been requesting this for years, don't hold your breath. I've been honoring this request but that's because I have courtesy.

I agree, all my female friends were women I tried to date but we both agreed wouldn't work out because we wanted different things.


Most guys are far as I remember don't do anything because they don't care either way. Old-fashioned manners seem to be out the window now. If I have no follow up, the answer is obvious to me.


the same can be said of women...

women have actually made a few threads with excuses for said behavior.

Like i said in a few of the "why dont they respond" threads, they simply do not give a fvck about you.

Meh...So thats what dating is for...Checking someone out. Discovering if theres chemistry and compatibility. At times Ive thought there might be a connection only to give it some thought and decide, yaknow, maybe not. All's fair. I always follow up with a thank-you and then I let the man contact me afterward. If they do, great! if not great too ...or I may decide thats its not for me. Thats what its all about. For both genders.

Generally you can tell, while on the date, if they're interested or not. Body language, how engaged they are in the conversation, if they're making good eye contact, and all of that other jazz. At the end of the date, if I'm not interested, I say "Well, it was nice meeting you." That tends to let them know that this was a meeting and not a successful one lol.

The men I've met here have been great about telling me they're interested in seeing me again, asking when we can go out again sometime, or even texting me quite quickly after the date has ended to tell me they enjoyed themselves. The great majority of humans can't hide their interest nor are they very good at feigning it either.

the truth....A hole is a hole ...interested or not....right boys...

OMG! This is the ultimate in poor taste & rudeness. This poster is little more than a wild animal. Good taste & decency are not apparently in his vocabulary or mannerisms. I would like to see Cowboy & some of the other honest, straight up gentlemen rip him a new one! You can simplly say thanks, but no thanks...we arent a good match, but good luck with your search!

I had this happen too. I don't understand the reluctance to say"Nice meeting you, but we aren't a match." Or at least text it later.
last week I went on a meet for coffee. We had messgaed each other for a couple of days and on the day of the meet were in constant contaasct all day. We were having a lot of fun. We met and continued talking and laughing until the coffeeshop closed. Oh ya, he brought me carnations. he walked me to my car and we talked a few minutes, gazing into each other 's eyes like silly teens. He bent towards me and asked if he could kiss me. we stood by my car for 5 minutes or so kissing the most sensuous kisses I have ever had. We decided to go on a real date for the next day..dinner and a movie. We even picked the movie and restaurant. sounds great, right? I got home he messaged me good night and I responded with the same. I texted in the mid-morning to say i was looking forward to our date. I got no response. I didn't think too much of it because he was at work.
Then a couple of hours later, he messaged and said he changed his mind and didn't want to get involved so fast. I said it's just dinner not a commitment. Anyway, I was crushed. I can understand the flowers and even the kiss; but why make plans for another date if you have no intention of going?

Same thing applies to women. When the women that I have talked to or had a few dates with lost interest for whatever reason, the majority of them have done the disappearing act. Or they will answer my calls or texts. But they will keep making excuses about why they are unavailable to go out on a date.

In communication before the meet I bring up the topics of the exit strategy. It may be love at first sight, we may have a fun time but no connection, we may be turned off after we meet ... whatever! Lets agree that anyone can call it a night no hard feelings.

At the end, I just ask them out again. Why wait and play games. They can always say no.

I met a guy recently. We hit it off online through messages and even on the phone. Eventually we met up in person and got physical. He was a gracious and generous host. Our communication dwindled after the first week on either end but we met up again. Was physical again. He got terribly sick this week. I was texting him to see if he was feeling better for about a week but by the fourth date I was feeling insecure. The third weekend, I texted him a message parting ways and wishing him all the best saying I wasn't the right match for him. He texted back hurt and I tried to console and apologize.

My mistake was assuming that our communication was dwindling was a sign of loss of interest on his part. Plus I was feeling emotions for him and getting insecure and not getting positive reinforcement eventhough he texted me back on rare occasions leaving dear messages.

May this be a counter point for woman who aren't sure. Open communication is very important otherwise it leads to such misunderstandings.

This is a hook up site, most guys will hang around until they get what the came for, a piece of ass and never call again . Thousands of women on here can't dispute that fact.

If I go out with a guy and we just don't hit it off, we'll usually have a friendly lunch/drink, whatever. Then I will say something like, "I enjoyed meeting you and spending this time together." Then I will extend my hand and lean over to kiss him on the cheek and he will do the same. He will tell me "good luck" and I will answer in kind.

The ones that bother me are the ones who tell you they want to see you again, but never calll---the ones that suggest sex right away, that kind of thing. I can pretty much read the motives and dissappear.

Right now I am chatting with a man who says he "doesn't have umlimited long distance" and wants me to call him....how difficult is it to GET unlimited LD? So I don't call him but he continues to send me emails and chat on POF......what do you aall make of this?

Nothing really to say. I just excuse myself and go to the restroom and sneak out.

I think a lot of us here, guys and gals, are always chatting with more than one person at a time. I do sometimes. But if there is someone I really want to get to know, I do concentrate on him. When I find a guy is chatting with more than me, I realize he is holding an opening for the second choice in case the first one doesn't work out.

That being said, I have dated a few guys from here who have been real sweeties and we have stayed friends. Most of them tho, have been jerks and manipulators. I catch on quick and end any communication. I did get really lucky with one guy from Virginia---who was a stalker----got inot my computer and messed with everything after I told him we wouldn't work out----2 dates. Finally I turned him over to the State Police who have a unit for cyber stalking and they paid a visit to his house and that ended it.

All guys aren't jerks. Just read between the lines and if you like someone take a chance. Just watch for that ut-oh feeling you got when you were a kid and if you get that or any red flags, back out....

Some guys try to not hurt the girls feeling by replying to some messages after the first date if you have to text them after the first date to get a reply then they are not interested. Now, if after the first date they blowing up your phone and making plans for the next one then they are very interested.

if he really like you and want to talk to you, he'll make plans for your next date and he will also get long distance on his phone after a couple weeks other then that if he have a job. If he don't have a job then that's a little tricky. For me if i'm not interested in a women and don't want to hurt her feelings and we stay far way i would tell her i don't have long distance on my phone and would not waste money on getting long distance because i don't plan on seeing you again.

For me... if I'm not interested in a woman following a date, I'll be straight-up with her about it. The women I date all want honesty. I'm a guy who's honest at all times... even if it comes down to being brutally honest. The way I see it... if you have to let a woman down after a bad date, just be honest. She'll get over it, as will you. But never beat around the bush about it. And definately don't let her down from behind a keyboard or cell phone. Tell her face-to-face.

Need some help here. I'm new to the online thing and have met with a couple women and the dates have been good but the area I need help in is how do you handle when you find out that the woman you've been talking to online has been more than a little misleading about herself in her profile. I've had 2 so far, one of them I met in person after a meet and greet I told her "Thanks but No Thanks" and she was ok with that. The other I found out about thru a mutual acquaintance that her pictures and some of her profile wasn't what you would call correct. I ask her about it and she got rather rude in her response !!! What's the best way to handle it?

Why waste your time worrying about it. If the stupid ****es don't see what a great guy you are, ignore them, move on to the next. There's plenty of fine woman here that want to meet a decent guy and won't jerk you around. Plus a lot of them are just nut cases and better to be rid of them now.

I've never been not interested after a first meet.

Maybe a third?
