This one guy, emailed me for the first time a week ago. We had exchanged 3 emails. He sent me his picture as I requested on Tuesday. I wasn't feeling well this week and didn't email him back right away. Then yesterday (Thursday), I took off for the day with a friend. When I got back - there was an email from him asking for the courtesy of a response. OK, perhaps that is just his way of speaking...
So I wrote back last night, telling him a bit about my day and said "I did receive your picture - thank you. You look very nice, and I appreciate your sending it to me..."
So today I get this ranting email from him, that I haven't even tried to get to know him, that I don't ask enough questions and that he expected much more from me. That I obviously don't have the time to have a relationship with anyone and I have shared nothing about myself. It went on and on...
I have asked questions, shared a little of my day with him each time I write, told him about my kids, and my dog. He has told me nothing about himself. Interesting enough, I just realized that he hasn't answered one of the questions I did ask - why he is not yet married at 53y.
I was going to write back a polite reponse - but now I am a little afraid of attracting an avalanche of emails telling me off! What would you do?
