I emailed a guy last night & this is what I got for a response:

Thanx for your email...I am just getting familiar with the site. At present, I am taking things very slow...and should I have interest, I will contact you. Again, I appreciate you taking time to reach out! Dick

So it's like "don't call me, I'll call you." Gee, thanks a lot!

Actually, I think it was a refreshing change from guys who don't respond at all, or exchange a few limpid emails asking "How are you?" and then never hearing from them.

I remember when I first joined match I got a lot of interest that first week or so, but being a female I could figure things out!

Sounds like an "out of office" email response.

Music;

Was this the guy who you went out with last week? The one who wanted to go out again?

If not then I know what those emails are? I used to call them form letters. I used to get these responses on OLD from men that they had written out one time and then when they are not interested or interested they mail out the same letter to a bunch of women. Am I explaining this right., Its like if a guy said Thank you; you are nice and kind but no thanks; This note would go out to the same women over and over. That way they dont have to think or speak from the heart. get it? It would be like their rejection letter and their acceptance letter to women without making any effort in writing out a note to each individual women.

I got really smart after awhile figuring out who sent these form letters to me. They sounded so cold and phony. Music it is not you so NEXT ..

sorry I went off on tangent.

Sheesh, how lame is that? Sorry, but OLD is not rocket science, dude. "I am just getting familiar with the site"?????? If he doesn't want to correspond with then meet women, why is he on the site?

At least he acknowledged your email, but I read it as not interested. I would rather not even get a reply. But that's just me.
