I was on my way to a game developers conference (hobbyist), I was searching for the room of the conference (is in a bloc for shared offices/workshops), and there in office in the corner, there was a woman sitting alone working on a laptop - I asked her if she knows where's the developers conference going on.

She looked at me and told me "I know you, you're the guy I met from okcupid" - (I remembered her too, probably was 5 years ago - went on a date with her for 3 hours date with her, was very amusing yet she barely replied to my messages and never initiated hence lost interest with her).
What's funny that a year ago she initiated a text with me once, out of the blue but then ghosted me again

Anyway back to yesterday incident, she started reminding details of that one date ages ago.

Then she said "You're the most decent guy I ever met from a dating site". I was like "Oh...why, thank you". (Yet I was thinking in my mind "Why then hell then you ghosted me as if I am an insect?" - ghosting is a major act of disrespect)


I was like "Oh, nice to meet you again then - hopefully we'll meet again" and she replied "I think we will meet a lot again" (Good sign! Wow...not really, it's just talk), she admitted that she still single and seeking for someone - anyway I left to search the conference.

Then in the same evening I sent her a text a pic of the seminar inside, telling her that I managed to find the conference room, she replied with a thumb up - then I asked how is she doing.

Guess what? She read that last message....and ignored me. Fascinating! It seems, even I, the "most decent guy she ever met from a dating site" didn't deserve a reply back then...and still doesn't deserve a reply from her highness for a such normal question today - nor further communication.

She literally has wrinkles on her face now; wrinkles but still single and still the same same exact confusing attitude 5 years ago.

Some women are really laughable and hilarious.

I predict that this woman will die single.

You were too nice to her. I would have just told her "Yeah, yeah, yeah cut the bs and screw off."

My guess is that she likes to see persistence from guys. Perhaps her ghosting was a test to see if you will still be interested in her.

Or she's just not interested in Mr. Boo.

If that was indeed a test, it probably explains why she's still single. Few men are going to waste time on a woman who appears to ignore us. We'll just assume they're not interested and move on.

Exactly. I thought you would have responded along the lines of "and you were just another flake who will always be single". As I have mentioned before, of the women I dated and still see around town, all of them are still single to this day.

My biggest regret from my dating days was not (politely) telling off a few of the flaky princesses. I was WAY too nice to most of them.

All the younger guys should start taking notes.

Perhaps she just said that to be nice.
It's also possible that she thinks guys will be more interested if she plays hard to get since some women & maybe her fall for guys who play hard to get.
It may also be a Sh!t Test like 314pe said.

The best revenge is to live well.

You've got a girlfriend, she's on her own. If you see her again pretend you don't recognise her, that will annoy her a lot more than anything you could say.

If Boo was the most decent guy from dating sites, I'm glad I never joined any!

Well, it's her problem not yours, anyway.

actually I pretended that I didn’t recognize her quickly, and she was like “damn I really got old it seems”.

I should have continued pretending that I didn’t remember her at all though, nor should I should have texted her after all these years - lesson learned.

You did the decent thing, Boo. Always take the "high road" with these things.

I sense that this lady has problems. I'd steer far away from her.

Maybe she was busy at that moment?
Maybe she got distracted and forgot to reply?
Maybe she's really not that interested?
Maybe she's more socially inept than most?
Who knows..

I feel that this women really liked Boo---but that she was scared to "take the next step." She was scared to be "too happy" and to feel that this is "too good to be true."

I lost many girls who didn't like the "too good to be true" feeling.

Maybe she likes the attention, and just isn't interested.?
