Dating sites - is it better to ignore those your not interested in, or say no thanks?

Ok i ignore messages i get from guys who are mingers not my type

But there are some persistant feckers out there with inflated egos who cant take the hint

So, this one bloke, who i have constantly ignored up until now, just send me this:

'hi tex me on <inserted mobile number here> for a chat'

So i replied:

'Thanks, but no thanks.'

and i got this back:

'go on we can have a laugh sexy xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' wtf?

I should have just continued to ignore, cos now im all fired up and feel like saying

'do one, minger'

He sounds like a knob. Just ignore him until he gets fed up or block if you can. From what I've heard lots of guys on these sites don't get any replies at all, expecially if they are mingers challenged in the looks dept. Best not to encourage

Totally puts me off meeting someone who calls me 'sexy' before we've even met.

I don't tend to reply to anyone I am not interested in.

I would say that you should never ignore someone who has made the effort to contact you. A polite "no thanks, good luck" won't kill you.

That said, if anyone can't take no for an answer, block them. you shouldn't have to put up with hassle.

You've already given a polite reply - which I think is appropriate for anyone - ugly or beautiful - if you're not interested.

However I'd now roll with "do one, minger"! wink

Reminder: Don't write off the ugly ones - we all know it's how they treat us not what they look like. But feel free of course to dump the ones who can't spell, want phone sex or are just plain creepy.

PS Tell him your moniker is "VinegarTits" elsewhere - he'll write you off as a lesbian bitch! wink

Ignore the tw*ts;
Block the persistent tw*ts;
But do send a polite 'thanks but no thanks' if a guy has gone to some effort to read your profile properly and write a decent email... I did that and have made 2 really good friends - not my type but great guys nonetheless! smile
