My email response to Mario...
I thought there was a reason why you didn't call. I find it confusing since the way you kissed me and told me how much you like me and "definitely" wanted to spend time with me was a great way to end a first date. You even told me you wouldn't change a thing about me. As dates go, it was a very good one. You kept saying how ready you were to get something started and it was a bit overwhelming. I don't like to give too much to someone I haven't even met since I don't know what it will be like when we do meet. We don't know each other well enough for me to say I'd move to Kentucky with you. I thought you'd want to friends at the least if things didn't work out.
In any case thanks for a nice time in case I forgot to say it.
Again, it's just unrealistic to expect that you will connect on EVERY level. Like I said before, often chronic singles have unrealistic expectations. From the way he was kissing me I was pretty sure he was totally into me. Whatevs.
So here were his red flags that had me freaking out:
1. Declared bankruptcy last year. Yes, we all have troubles. He bought a condo, then lost his job. It could happen to ANYONE. I was prepared to be understanding.
2. Didn't go past an AA. I didn't tell him I had a Master's Degree. I didn't want to make him feel bad.
3. I'm allergic to something he really loves. I am not kidding. I'm allergic to horses.
4. Really pushy about being ready to start a relationship before we met.
5. Inappropriate comment after we kissed. Said, "I want to know what it feels like to be between your breasts." I was so embarrassed. My jaw must have dropped and I completely blushed. He then recouped by saying, "Well you surprised me, so I thought I would surprise you."
Somehow I think I'm going to be OK.
