Internet dating polite rejection
Like conducting a job search, online dating is an exercise in patience, compatibility, and, sometimes, rejection.It’s not romantic, but to a certain degree, the search for a suitable partner is not unlike the job hunt.They want someone under 5’2”, someone who skis, someone without kids, someone who lives closer, etc.
By the end of my online dating experience, I became a pro at saying no and I constantly typed my “decline line”: It was clear, direct, and simple.Believe me, most men are so much better at this online dating thing than we are. (But keep in mind that men, especially men dating in their 40s, 50s and beyond, still have the same dating challenges we do; sometimes worse.) So just know this, and heed my advice to let the feeling of online rejection wash over you.They get told ‘no’ wayyyy more than we do, but they understand that this is a process, accept that and keep going. Let’s separate true rejection with what you consider as online rejection. Guys in their older years have the statistical advantage – there are more of us (women over 40 looking for love) and fewer of them (men over 40 doing the same). “I’d figure he probably went off to live his busy life and, since he didn’t really know me, I just kind of dropped out of his mind. Also heed my advice about how to make online dating work best for you. One advantage to being a woman over 40 is that you have the perspective of a life well lived.Don't worry, they will eventually get over you and move on (no offense).If you are worried that they need you in some way, you can offer to remain friends after the breakup.
