I met a guy online, we seemed to have similar interests, so we met up for a date. It actually went well, and there were no awkward pauses and a lot of laughter. He doesn't have a phone so we've been trying to email back and forth, but I found it extremely frustrating, because we were both busy and we'd only have the time to email in the evenings. So often we would just exchange one email of about three sentences every other day.
I realized that this is not a relationship that I want to get into (if you don't have a phone, I think you need to be more proactive by either frequently emailing, or putting more effort into emailing, or just by picking up a pay phone and calling), so I ignored his last email message for a week, thinking that he was probably not that interested, and that the contact would just fizzle out.
But he actually emailed me a couple more times since then, which makes me think that he's either just lazy or bad with communication, even though he is interested. I feel like the polite thing to do is to let him know that I am not interested (in the nicest way possible). I thought ignoring him was the best way, but should I respond and say something? Any recommendations?

Why the fuck are you just not telling him your concerns? Guys are not mind readers and never will be. Instead you are resorting to shitty, shitty mind games. Girls, its 2014 stop doing this. What would the guy think if out of the blue you are ignoring him? Instead tell him, hey listen this doesn't work out for me. Communication is important for me, I need someone in my life who communicates more frequently. If he tries to change but you already made up your mind, again tell him sorry, I made up my mind already. Good luck and have a good life.2
