    How to gently fade away??

    I recently started dating a woman I met online. After 2 dates I do not feel the chemistry. We do not talk as much as we did when we first started interacting, but sometimes she will text me. It’s been almost a week since we had any interaction. We have never kissed or really shared anything personal. The dates have been very friendly. I kinda don’t want to call her again. My friend told me I don’t need to send her a rejection letter, just don’t call.

    I am no rookie. I’ve been out on dates with women, called them, and never got a call back. I know how it works. You read between the lines.

    But I sorta made semi plans with her in our last interaction, which was a week ago. We never set a time, it was just a thought. Nothing is confirmed. I can easily just not call and just let it fade.

    I’ve been feeling depressed lately, and I don’t know how much I am up for it. Especially with a woman who is very nice, but I don’t think the chemistry is there. What do you all think?

    I just want to add that I don’t want er to get in too deep with m. I just know myself, and my gut is telling me that this she may not be for me, but I must admit I have a little self doubt.

    Yes in this instance tell her the truth and if you still want to be friends if possible ,be a friend.

    Agreed, was recently in a similar situation. Just sent her a text telling her I had fun but didn’t feel a connection. She texted back saying she respected that and appreciated me being up front and honest.
    If more people were more upfront and honest like that dating would be a lot easier and less stressful for all.
