So I will not be seeing Mr Nice Change of Pace again and it has nothing to do with my calling him to invite him somewhere. (to see previous blog on calling etiquette click here)
Apparently, within the last 4 days he has had a change of heart. He sent me a charmingly written “Dear John” email stating he is getting back together with his former(?)/current(?) girlfriend.
It was a nice note and I am grateful for his honesty in the matter as opposed to leading me on or just never contacting me again. But I am a bit annoyed with my rotten luck.
It is difficult to meet suitable men in my age bracket and downright rare to find a nice one so this is a bit of a blow. I am also annoyed with the swiftness of the action. We had lunch on Tuesday when he told me he liked me and would like to get to know me better, on Wednesday he sent me an email suggesting we go on a trip together in the near future and on Saturday morning this email acknowledging that there is potential for a great romantic relationship between us but he is choosing to rekindle his relationship with this other woman.
Of course he wants to keep a friendship going- hinting that if things don’t work out with her we could give it a go.
I need some help here. How should I respond to that? Thoughts?
