Pinkyblue, that's worth celebrating. I'm awfully shy about taking the initiative myself, and I agree that this was a great step to take, regardless of the outcome. Yay you!
Wonder, you are not hideous or anything like it! This doofus clearly has his own issues.
But since you do seem to have interests and a sense of humor in common--and I'm starting to find just how rare this is in the online dating
world, even though with the sheer quantity of guys out there one would think the pool of real possibilities would be larger--maybe give it a few days, and drop him a Match email, just briefly saying what you told us: that it looks like you have these things in common.
Or not, of course, as ye list.
I know I'd be reluctant to try again after getting no response. But hey, I'm 42 and dateless, so I'm thinking my instincts have not served me particularly well...
Also, as Pinkyblue said, cats are good. I miss my dog a lot; she was a good snuggler. I need to go hang around some of my neighbors with dogs and sneak in some tummy rubs and ear fondling. On the dogs, of course, not the neighbors.
