So I’ve been trading emails with someone from JDate. I’m not extending my paid membership beyond the end of this month, so it’s a last ditch effort.
He’s nice on email, seems interesting, educated… the good stuff.
Unfortunately he lives 30 miles away – about 5 blocks from my late mother’s condo. I know that drive well. Very well.
And the bad news is he doesn’t drive.
So… if I’m going to see him, it means that I’m driving into the city to do it.
I sent him an email explaining that the hour drive is too much for me to do during the week. I work until 4 or 5, and to then get in the car and drive an hour is too much. And, of course, there are the dogs… I wasn’t nasty, just honest. I also said that we could see how the weekend would work out.
I got a pretty strongly worded response that he was angry by my judgmental & accusatory email. Seriously. I’m not sure how my response was judgmental and accusatory.
