I agree with you, Tara ......... 3 weeks is a good enough length of time to get to know a little bit about him, either over the phone or thru emails. I say, the sooner you meet, the better!
. . . you are so darn cute, the ladies were probably afraid you wouldn't like them. I am older than you, so I can get away with calling you cute.
I agree, Joanna ...
I know you were asking the ladies, but I thought you might like to hear from another guy that I, too, find that many women are quickly scared away and may take any small reason to end a dialogue or terminate a budding relationship. There's a lot of fear. Be not afraid, women of the world! I suppose there are a lot of creeps out there, but boy do they spoil the scene for all of us! Personally, I feel that in your scenario, Dave, distance matters a lot. I don't think it's odd to state that you prefer meeting in person rather over chatting online and to suggest you meet after a couple of messages if you're in the same city or, say, within 90 minutes of the other person. But if you seem eager to meet in person after two messages and you have to travel a significant distance, then I'd find that odd. I think it sends a message that having a partner is more important to you (general "you"--not you, Dave!) than who that partner is and that you may not have a good pulse on what it takes to get to know a person. Hope these thoughts are useful.
