Your question was: I find both the Confused.com and the Match.com adverts most annoying. would you agree? if not what a.
When you want to make sure that you convey interest in a guy, but really cant go out the evening that he has asked you to go out..dont turn him down..state that you cant make it BUT that you are available another night (pick the night)..
Generally it feels less personal to be asked out by way of text messaging. Since it feels less personal the response can be less personal too..
You mentioned that he tried to kiss you. Did you turn your head away?.
So you turned him down twice, then you asked him out, you went out and now you've asked him out twice and he's turned you down? Let him come to you now..
Not that you did anything wrong but sometimes in the early stages best to let the guy initiate. Say hi when you see him in a friendly way to show you're fine and leave things be.
I agree with Carrie and the 'Dating Doyenne'. LED HIM TAKE THE LEAD. If this just so happens to NOT work out, take this as a 'lesson learned'.
Asking him out the first time, cued him in that you were interested. By asking twice more, I really think that could have affected the dynamics..
