Mr. Sensitive

So, I don't need to let you know what kind of guy I am looking for. We have been over that over and the point that I do feel like a broken record. Anyway, I got my weekly e-mail from a nice-looking Catholic boy saying how we would be a great match. Those e-mails are flattering, don't get me wrong, but it would be nice to get them from a nice-looking Jewish guy (it only takes one, right?!). Well, I do like to e-mail people back, even if I don't think we are a match. I just know that I would like it if people would write back, even if its just to say we are not a match. Especially since I took the time to write in the first place. Anyway, I penned my usual response which goes like this:

Thanks so much for your e-mail, but I just don't think we are a match. I am looking for a nice Jewish guy to bring home to my mom. Good luck to you!!

Usually they leave at that, but not Mr. Sensitive. He had something to say and say it he would! This was his response to me:

I think Jewish guy was sufficient. The implication that we're not nice or not worthy of bringing home to mom is something we gentiles don't get.

Wow!! I did not mean anything of the sort. To assume that my e-mail meant that he could not possibly be nice or a guy worthy of bringing home was a bit of a reach. I mean, get over yourself! I am just trying to be nice by responding rather than ignoring you all together. Which I think is the way to go from now on. I did let him know that I didn't mean any offense and he shouldn't take it so hard. I once again wished him luck in his search, lets see what he says now, or maybe I can have the last word on this? I do love that!

Either way, good luck to you Mr. Sensitive! And to all you gentiles out there that just "don't get it" take this lesson from Mr. Sensitive, when the girl responds with a gentle let down just be glad she responded, or would you rather be ignored?

As someone who's sent out tons of unresponded to emails on dating sites, I actually preferred not getting the "thanks, but no thanks" response. I often forgot who I emailed seconds after I sent it, and getting a blow off email, albeit a polite one, just reminded me that I was being blown off. But that's just me.

Good luck out there!
