Emotional connection?Page 1 of 1    
If you have one of those boring 'interview' dates with someone you don't really care what they think afterwards, there probably wasn't much of an 'emotional' connection. Some people scan through their laundry list of 'interests' with the other party to see what matches, but never bother asking HOW MUCH interest they hold in anything particular. That kind of stuff loses emotional connections pretty fast. The devil is in the details, and there's all kinds of nonverbal cues and spoken things that get missed or avoided than can drop interest.

The daters that make that snap decision the second you meet to NOT like someone really annoy the crap outta me. They make that decision to lock someone out emotionally before you even get to say, "Hi." Not a lot of people are like that, but they do exist. I almost feel like they need a smack upside the head to snap them out of their self-righteous stupor. They are the ones that spend a lot of the rest of the date smiling and nodding and not saying anything, because they don't want to send 'signals' that can be misunderstood as interest. Why they even stay five minutes, I'll never know.
