The end of 8

So I finally got around to ending it with Date 8. I have to say a weekend with the family and various people asking me what 8's name really is made me laugh. Cause really who wants to waste precious space in the memory banks for a name that will be totally unnecessary shortly?

Hi 8,

Sorry I didn't get a chance to call. It was a very busy weekend. I didn't get back until late, and I had a massive headache.

I have enjoyed getting to know you, and thank you for putting effort into making fun dates. You are a great guy, but I don't think we are a good fit. I have no doubt you will find a lovely girl that is perfect for you. You deserve to find someone who is a good match for you.

This is my standard. Again, I recognize I am total chickenshit for not doing it in person, but really, in person is awkward and uncomfortable for everyone involved. Email is so much better, cleaner, etc. It's not like I want them to like me forever and talk well of me. Mainly, I just want them to go away with minimal fuss.

8's response has to be my absolute favorite.

I enjoyed our time together and wanted to talk with you about the same subject. It is good to know we were on the same page about where this was going.
I hope you have a great time in Europe!

Take care,

I just like that we are on the same page!! ; )
