So, I wanted to share with you all a little update on the Pastor. If you don't know who he is, you should read my first and second blog posts about him.
Remember how I said that I decided to respond to his 3 week late email, short, sweet and sassy-like. I had also said that I wanted him to know that I had assumed he wasn't interested because it took him so long to respond. I was worried that I might hurt his feelings, but he needed to know the truth and that most girls wouldn't have responded to his 3 week belated response.
Anyways, he responds with two emails: one email asked if he could take me out to dinner. I responded with my cell phone number and told him that I was looking forward to hear from him. But, I never did hear from him, and I don’t think he’s going to make the effort.
All in all, here's what I learned:
Just because a person has a specific occupation (ahem, a Pastor), it doesn’t make them any different than the person next to them. Even if that person has a fantastic resume, if the rest isn’t there: courage, confidence, respect, etc., it’s not going to be worth it in the long run.
Also, rejection, in any form, can be such a good thing! This was the first guy to reject me through online dating and the first guy to reject me since my dating hiatus. So it's a great thing to wrestle through, but, that’s another topic for another day!
