An old acquaintance (we never met in person) contacted me via internet dating site as my profile came up as a match. He had no clue who I was but I spotted him right away and let him know about it.
He asked a few times about why am I single and I just brush it off as I thought it's really dumb question to ask.. After a few more emails he rememebered who I was and asked to catch up.
I then said to him I'm already in a situation and don't want to lead him on, I'm more than happy to catch up as friends.
Since then he disappeared. I thought I was polite enough to not "ghost on him" and still offer the friendship?

I can't see any rejections happening. "in a situation" yet still on a dating site shows you are looking to jump ship.
Exchanging emails is giving him hope that may be he can upgrade to be your boyfriend or be your side guy.
He is now asking how seriously it is and that really is supporting my point. If you want to give him a rejection you have to tell him that he is not your type or something along the ling.2

One never knows how these 'Behind the computer curtain" wing things will Go or even end Up... I thought I was polite enough to not "ghost on him..."
He sounds like the kind of Fellow who is just Mellow and comes and goes like the wind, not really into a Real Relationship, not even 'Friendship'... Here Today and gone Tomorrow to Another lost soul, you could Say... I know his type.
Good luck and More real Deal guys with better tries. xx1
