Could you expand your thinking on this one a bit? Or even a lot?
In which case I may gave already crashed and burned... maybe tomorrow will tell!
e-mail here has only been a very small part of the process. Do you go as far as to say not to use e-mail at all, like ever? In asking that I totally know what you mean and have seen so many examples in non-game situations, text, e-mail - all very easy to get the meaning wrong. Which begs the question... what the hell was I doing?!
And finally what would your response have been? And I include in your range of answers non-e-mail responses, obviously!
And really, really finally, let's say I have hit a bad note on this one, oh, reply was something like "And so very brave to tease someone of your stature!
" So, a bit too similar to the answer you reckon was a bad 'un.... what is your damage assessment and what are your recommendations for getting back in there?
#1 Eddiee seems to have explained it well (thank you), to expand - a woman wants a man who wouln't cry and apologize everytime she doesn't like something, she wants a man who's strong, secure, and confident; if you are weak and she can control you you have none of those traits.
#2 It was more of a suggestion than a requirement, it's not the worst reply you could've sent
#3 E-mail is acceptable to get/use, you Shouldn't use e-mail at all if you can, but if that's what you got it's what you got; just try to get to the next step (#close and set up a day2) asap (you can get stuck in the "e-mail buddy" zone very quickly, move out of this space FAST)
#4 Something like "i'll give you a chance to get me back, why don't we go to the bakery Wednesday right after work and eat some (insert food here)" is one example, there's 100's of options though depending on your situation
#5 Bad lol, first off that was a boring reply, she has no reason to e-mail you back and probably wouln't; second it has nothing in it, you want to do one of a few things - get her number, set up a date/day2, add sexual tension, or have some playful banter (in that order) - look at your e-mail with knowing it should have one of those in mind next time
Saying about her height isn't terrible BUT it is better in person is better because with facial expressions (smiling, smirking, Kino) she can tell a lot more when you are joking and is less likely to be taken the wrong way.
