But I'll also say that if a person it's going to reject you over one text, then they aren't someone you want anyway.
Have to agree here. IMO what you said was from the heart and phrased in a fairly positive way. The right guy would be thrilled that you can be so straightforward, and have no qualms stepping up on the niceties a bit.
If you can't be you, like what you like, and be honest about it how is that going to work?
Hope you get some clarity soon, and that life is otherwise treating you well.
