really?  this guy couldn't think of a question to ask me or say anything that would give me a faint glimmer of hope that he's interested?  is he typing from his iphone or droid that makes it difficult to type?  I copied our emails below

Hi,
Happy New Year. Nice pics. I used to be a runner but had knee surgery. It's not the same for me anymore. 


Sorry to hear that . Happy new year

Assuming he is the 2nd one, then I'd say he's not interested, but who can tell what guys want?

I found this guy who was going on pretty much about really wanting a relationship, not just dinner dates and such, so I emailed him something that was more than a few sentences, then I got a response that must have been from his phone because he used "u" for "you"--and this guy is a college grad.  It was like "U are so good looking that u must have tons of guys after you" and I couldn't figure out whether that meant he was interested or it was a fake compliment like "I'm not interested but if I tell you you're good looking, then you won't feel bad" so I actually asked him "does this mean you're interested or not?"  I didn't hear anything from him (this was a few days ago) so I thought oh, this means no--but then he wished me a happy new year last night--so why would he even bother if he's totally uninterested?  I figure that he's probably talking to someone else but somehow wants to keep me on the line--am I cynical or what?
