Here’s why I don’t typically respond to the guys I’m not interested in:

For the record, I don’t think you’d be one of the those guys. But I “know” you. I don’t know any of these other guys.

Some people like hearing a response if it’s to decline interest. But others get quite perturbed.

At this point, I’m accustomed to being blown off all the time, so someone ignoring my initial attempt to reach out is not a big deal. But I hate being ghosted by someone who has met me more than once. That feels really tacky.

I feel like I have a lot more to say in response, but might throw these thoughts into a proper story (or two).

I will say this: There’s nothing wrong with sticking with the app/website that works for you! #teamjonathan
