I attended a speed dating event last Sunday evening. I got my matches Monday and had about 6 of the girls say yes I had also said yes to. Shot a quick email off to them that evening and spoke with one on the phone last night. (Planning on more tonight) Today I received an email reply from "Allison" who was the one I was actually most interested in.
"Hey - Thanks for messaging me. I just wanted to give a quick message back to let you know that even though we matched, I dont think this is going to work. I have a few other potentials brewing and i dont want to waste anyone's time."
Not sure how, (or if), I should reply to this. Obviously I'm disappointed as I felt she held a lot of promise and it's pretty obvious that even though she said yes she's made me 2cd choice (or worse lol).
What's a good and classy way to reply, and possibly leave it open should some of her first choices turn out to be jerks.
