How to respond to strange after first date email?

Published on February 10, 2013 by scarletred

I went out on a first date with a new guy last night. I'd like to see him again in hopes of eventually having a relationship, but he sent me a strange email this morning. How should I respond? I'm going to paste it in so that you can tell me how to respond. Thanks!

Just following up to say thanks for last night. It was good to get out for a change.

I have to admit I'm way out of practice on the single scene. The immensely tiny part of my brain that is allocated to making decisions on social issues was way overloaded. I kept hearing myself think things like "hold her hand you ninny", "put your arm around her", " take your heavily muscled Mr. Atlas arm, firmly wrap it around her tiny supermodel waist, gently pull her pelvis into you and plant a smootch on her until she transforms into a quivering ball of enfatuated she-flesh". Yeah, thats my brain all right. Trying to imitate a romance novel. It's too bad they don't have brain tune-ups. I could use one.

We never did talk about the "what are you looking for in a relationship" issue. I've been in a few in the past and now I'm twice shy as they say. Couldn't help but notice there are a few things that don't mesh between us but I still find myself feeling kind of fond of you.

If it's O.K. with you, I'd like to keep in touch. Since we are both pretty busy though, it looks like we will probably cross paths only rarely. I'm OK with that if you are.

In the meantime, I need to figure out where "quivering ball of she-flesh" came from. Seriously, who thinks like that?
