Finally tried online dating after being single for 5 years. Did not hit it off but dude is still texting me. How to let down? Should I just not text back?

I online date. I usually tell them that I’m not interested. It’s so easy to just be honest. Ppl have said that they appreciate the honesty & me not wasting their time. You could also block them.

Mmmm that's mean to not respond back. Just text him and say not ready to date again or didn't feel like you clicked. Idk if he seems like will really hurt his feelings just say u realized ur not ready to date or something?

Yeah be honest and let him know you’re not interested. I’ve been on the receiving end of the rejection before and I appreciate the honesty a lot more than getting ignored

Thanks- yeah, I’m worried about being mean but I don’t want to string anyone along. Looks like this online thing will be harder than I thought.

While you may feel as if you’re being mean, you aren’t in any way. You need to do what you feel is best for yourself.

That said online dating is a whole other beast. You either get the ppl that are there to swipe and pass time or you get those looking for serious relationships

PwC OP just text “I’m sorry, I didn’t feel a connection, but thank you and good luck.” Treat other’s as you wish to be treated and you’ll always be doing the right thing. 💕

Don’t not respond. Just be honest and tell them you were not feeling the connection and vibe and don’t think a second date would be a good idea.

At least my current role is with enterprise accounts which. Thought?
