A few days ago someone replied to an ad I have. I dutifully sent a photo to him first, without ever seeing his by the way.
This morning this is what greets me:
Hey Jason, good morning. Thank you for the pic and the reply. I feel that I have to be honest with you from the start.
I am not attracted to you. I can be friends and we can keep talking, but I beleive in being truthful always. I hope you understand.
What type of painting do you do? I'm kinda new to the painting thing, but my work seems to be selling really well. I sold 10 paintings last month.
Now it's not like it's never happened before, but it always hurts a bit you know?
I'm not sure what to write back to him, you know. But I did anyway. I seemed rude not to.
I complimented him on his sale of paintings and thanked him and well, what else could I say?
