On an online dating site over the past week, I’ve been messaging with this guy who seems pretty cool. We exchanged a few messages through the site, then I told told him that he could email me directly. I haven’t given him my number yet.
Today, I noticed that he found me on Facebook and sent me a friend request. I have some stuff on my page that’s publicly viewable, but most of my pictures I’ve set to private. This leads me to believe that he sent the friend request because he wants to check out my pictures. Just to clarify, I already have more than 10 photos on my dating profile, so it’s not like I’m being all that secretive or anything.
The last message he sent me before I got the Facebook request was, “I’ve enjoyed messaging with you and was wondering if you want to meet sometime?” I haven’t responded yet, but I think he sent the Facebook request right after sending this email.
I’m thinking of denying his request and telling him that I only add people if we actually communicate from time to time. But, I do want to meet him, so I’m not sure if he would take this as a rejection. Any suggestions on how I can handle this?
