So for the first question, you have three things you can do more effectively.
When you're online dating, a lot of dates happen when they really shouldn't.
Like a misunderstanding over a spilled pint which quickly turns into a bar brawl, these things should be nipped in the bud when you have the chance.
Because you are so adorable, desirable and amazing, lots of people will want to date you, but you can't be into all of them. You might be surprised at how nasty this can turn, and how quickly. Some schools of thought say you should be honest and upfront, say thank you but no and maybe explain you didn't feel there was sufficient chemistry to continue.
So you should be clear from the off about what you do and don't want in your online dating profile. You should fully expect even the nicest of rebuffs to turn kindly Keith from Kettering into a whirling tornado of embittered vitriol. Well, yeah, but it's getting late and you don't want to put a downer on the evening, so the Guyliner school of thought says, just answer "Sure, why not?

If you're absolutely sure you don't want to 'go there', be firm but fair. Don't get into the dialogue they are so desperate for. But if you've not been feeling it enough to want an encore, this question can put you in a tricky position. Then, should they bother to get in touch, do all the hard stuff over text.You may think you'd want to hear the news in person, but, as I have touched on before in my guide to dumping somebody by text, there's not much point in the why and the wherefores when you're being ditched.It's mortally embarrassing for you both and you really just want to be out of there. I seem to have the opposite problem of most of the women in your blog when it comes to online dating – too much of a good thing!I get a fair number of interesting replies and first messages and there are two things I’m struggling with.First, is there an acceptable way to say, “My dance card is pretty full right now, but I’ll get back to you in a few weeks if none of those dates go further?
