My first (and last) date with C wasn’t great. He was sweet and nice and there was nothing really wrong with him, but there was just no chemistry there at all. Right from our first contact when he hugged me in greeting I could tell there was nothing there. Rather than drag the relationship out I wrote him an email last night saying that while I enjoyed the date and his company, I didn’t want to pursue things further.
He wrote me back (which I wasn’t expecting) asking questions like, “What did I do wrong?” and saying, “I thought you were the one for me.” Sigh. This makes me feel like an awful person and like I really hurt him, and I hate that. That’s exactly what I was trying to avoid by ending things sooner rather than later.
I know I would much rather be rejected than have to dish out rejection to somebody…it just makes me feel very cold inside.
