How do you express displeasure early on?

So, new guy. Contact between dates has been solely by email, and has been sporadic enough that it's driving me crazy. I'm not looking for a clingy relationship, but I can't deal with guessing whether or not he wants to see me again. I don't want to go out with him if the current situation would be come the status quo. How do I indicate displeasure that's it taking him 3 days to respond to email, and my desire that he act more excited about seeing me again, if in fact he feels that way? [more inside]

"He's Just Not That Into You": Fact or Fiction?

Question for the guys: I've been reading "He's Just Not That Into You," which posits that if a guy is really interested in a woman, he'll pursue her relentlessly, no matter what else is going on in his life. Is this a valid theory? Has there ever been a time when you really liked a woman and were attracted to her, but didn't pursue a relationship because of external factors that had nothing to do with her (e.g. work problems, family illness, trauma of past relationship)?

How does a decent, caring but impotent and shy guy ever find a girlfriend?

I am a 38-year-old man who has many good qualities (I hope so at least) but two drawbacks which understandably be dealbreakers for most women - I am impotent and I have a small penis (around 4 inches on the rare occasions it is erect), so even if my impotence got treated I am not sure I could satisfy a women. On the other hand, I have heard that it's possible to have satisfactory sex life with a 3 inch penis, but have no idea how that can be. So basically I am what would be a figure of ridicule for many other men, and not exactly a strong candidate to be a boyfriend for most women either. However I know some women while still heterosexual may not want a sexual partner e.g. they may be celibate for whatever reason. And there may even be women who will overlook a sex life without penetrative sex for the right person. I have just come out of a four-year relationship which had lots of affection and companionship but not strong feelings of passion and obviously no sex, but I eventually want another relationship again and believe I have a lot of love to give the right person. How can I find her? [more inside]
