Additionally, your formerly blissful nights spent at Dorrian's and Bounce will be forever marred by hauntingly inevitable run-ins with past dumpees.
I can tell you that this is an experience about as pleasant as a root canal and provides an ABRUPT reminder that time does not heal all wounds.
When you don’t respond, you’re leaving the other person clueless, and this can be damaging to his or her self-esteem.
If one person expresses interest in another date, the answer is yes!
If the chemistry was lacking and there was no follow-up on either part, then it’s ok to go your separate ways in silence.
Rachel, 28 "I am very blunt when I'm not interested.
I don't have to do that very often, though, because I'm also very blunt when I don't want to give someone my number.
So if you're texting me in the first place, I'm probably going to say yes.
If it's any date other than the first one, I will say no and tell them why, in the way that I'd want to be told—I'm not feeling it going anywhere but thanks for your time, etc.The reason I give is true about 70 percent of the time; the only ones I lie to are the really nice ones where there was just no chemistry, because men never believe there was no chemistry if were attracted to you.To them I say, 'Hey, so, I really enjoyed getting to meet you, but things have gotten a bit more serious with someone else I was seeing and I'm going to see where that goes. Most of them are just like, 'Cool, text me if it doesn't work out.' And that one actually works BETTER if you've been dodging dates/texts for a week and feeling like a dick about it, because it has a built-in explanation for your flakiness. I usually double the amount of time I wait with each response, but you can use any time frame you deem appropriate for your predisposed texting cadence.) I do realize that this technique is far from unique or unorthodox—in fact, it's probably the easiest way to dump someone.The longer you keep someone wondering, the more you tie up his or her emotional resources, and that’s not fair.At the end of any of these statements you can throw in a “Good luck out there,” “Best of luck dating,” or “I know you’ll find someone great!Being straightforward saves this person mental anguish and wasted energy spent obsessing and overanalyzing your non-communicative behavior.
