I see where this is going and not to be a party pooper or anything, but I don't have the energy to craft hilarious paragraphs about myself, my background, and/or how my day is going before we've even had our first official date.
What can I say? I'm burnt out on writing long, funny emails! I feel bad because his emails are great. They're lighthearted and breezy. I couldn't ask for a better email exchange with a semi-stranger. His grammar is almost perfect. His spelling is above average. Bravo, sir.
But, when his email lands in my inbox, my eyes glaze over when I see a solid block of text. Great. Now I'll feel like a dick if I just write him back two sentences real quick. I considered copying and pasting some of my wittier observations from other emails I've written guys when we've entered this stage, but even that sounds like too much work.
Usually I'd be stoked that a guy was putting this much effort into writing hilarious emails but for some reason this time around, I'd prefer he just be radical in person when I see him in a few days. He doesn't need to draft hysterical superlong essays right now. Seriously, three to four upbeat sentences would do here.
