Hi! One local guy that I exchanged a few light emails with on eH was very responsive for a day or so and then he took about 2 days to answer my last email. When he wrote back he had some general reason why it took so long to reply and then he said "I wanted to get a quick note out because I don't want you to think I'm not interested... because I AM interested." I wasn't that into him anyway, so I didn't reply back. He hasn't written back at all either. A couple of days ago, I met someone on eH whom I really like and we have a lot in common. We've had a nice amount of email exchanges (just light stuff), but twice now he has written that he's really interested in me. One time it was just a general comment and the second time he said something like "Sorry if my question was too personal, it's just that I'm really interested in you."
I don't know why I'm running into guys who *tell* me that they're interested in me. You know what I mean? They should show me by just continuing with email and then slowly progressing things, not by specifically telling me that they're interested. Has anyone else run into this? Is it a red flag? Are they trying to subconciously convince themselves of their interest? :) It seems odd to me and wanted to get some opinions. Maybe it's nothing. I'm just not sure.
