This was his response. Would love to get your opinion.
Glad to know you are back safely–from any and all major cities…I envy your Paris experience–it’s always great to hear anyone say they feel they’ve experienced the best of something.
As for our hanging out together, I am sorry to hear that I disappointed you…I am honestly taken aback by your judgment of me.
I am trying to read between the lines–so forgive me for any misinterpretation–but I am assuming that your disappointment over check splitting is due to the fact that you don’t believe a woman should pay while on a (romantic) date (?). Proceeding under this assumption, I’m not sure what to say…
Most important, I suppose, is that I honestly have not felt you were interested in me romantically. I am very attracted to you (on a number of levels), yet based on your reactions I was fairly sure that friendship was your goal–though I would certainly value you on that level as well.
If you are talking to your guy friends about me I suppose I should be flattered to some degree that you felt me worthy of discussion, but I am also definitely at a disadvantage because you have to successfully communicate with me on the subject…I would certainly appreciate a chance to understand the ‘logic’ you refer to below, and the chance to know you better. If you have any interest in that (or not), please let me know soon so I know whether to save a ballet ticket for you.
