Being straightforward saves this person mental anguish and wasted energy spent obsessing and overanalyzing your non-communicative behavior.
This person is, after all, someone who wants to find love.
The reality is that not every date or relationship is going to work out.When you don’t respond, you’re leaving the other person clueless, and this can be damaging to his or her self-esteem.Many people don’t call or send a text, and even fewer say it straight to someone’s face because they dread hurting someone’s feelings. Stop wasting people’s time and emotional energy that could be invested back into the dating market.However, if one person expresses interest in getting together again, I think proper dating etiquette is to clearly communicate that you are no longer interested.If you’re not feeling it, it’s important to just be clear with the other person.Dating is hard enough, and the fear of rejection is real.Let’s make the process easier on everyone by showing some courtesy and respect.Be assertive and tell it like it is—in a kind way, of course!♦◊♦You might think you’re sending a message by just ignoring or subtly decreasing communication, but it’s confusing and hurtful.The male fear of rejection spans from being turned down for a first date to having their hearts broken in a long-term relationship.Women know this - but we also have a lifetime of cultural conditioning telling us it's a man's job to put his ego on the line in romance. For all the good, non-creepy guys out there, it's up to you, modern woman, to get your flirt on so he knows you're likely to say yes!
