Anyway, I've been doing offline consulting and providing other services for a while and recently began to use social media for networking. Potential clients have come to me with an interest in learning more about the services provided, and just when they've been talking enough business, they begin to switch gears and blend in subtle flirtations. I know not to take those serious and they don't pan out anyway.
However, I was going back and forth with one for a few weeks. All serious business. I'm waiting for the contract, and I like his FB fan page for the business (so I can analyze it). He sends a friend request, which I accept, only to send a highly inappropriate message, and then halts all contact when I'm non-responsive on FB but press on as if nothing happened in the emails.
I'm sure other women have had to deal with this. And I'm sure a few men will say they've had to as well.
What gives? What to do? How do you handle this and separate the serious from the time-wasting?
