Polite online dating rejection
Ignoring it will just make you come across as very rude and could give you a bad name with other potential daters on the site.
No one wants to be known as the “ignorer” so always send a polite message clearly stating that you are not interested and the reasons why.
Granted, for some people, a more heavy-handed approach is necessary. Polite is good, but if it doesn’t work, try sterner and firmer.

The site will then begin to monitor all your e-mail messages and kick you off the system if it doesn’t like what you’re writing.” Afterward, break off the communication.
From then on, your approach is no reply, no comment, no nothing. If you think you have a problem prospect, even if you’re anonymous, don’t feel uncomfortable reporting the situation to the site operator (usually under abuse or Webmaster).
