It is Disappointing When People Don't Respond To My Friendly Email

This week I experienced a disappointment in trying to keep in touch with people from my former employer.  I am arranging a SABR meeting in early March and thought to invite former colleagues interested in baseball.  Only 1 out of 7 invitees answered the email.  At least he said that it was nice to hear from me.  I am disillusioned that the others did not have the courtesy to at responding to the email even if they are not interested in coming to the meeting.  I knew these for many years and now realize that I must put them in the past.  Likewise, I sent an email to a SABR member asking if he was interested in holding a baseball trivia meeting at a restaurant.  He didn’t respond.  I think that out of courtesy he should have responded saying that he just wasn’t interested.

There is nothing I can do but move on and let go of these people.
