May I ask...
If a person leaves you a polite message, even if you are not interested, do you not respond or do you politely let them know?
If a person has checked out your profile, maybe even said they'd like to meet you, but you aren't interested/attracted-do you ignore them or even block them; or do you politely let them know?
Hopefully, you are of the latter mindset.
This site has been less than lackluster, but has entertainment value.
It totally depends, obviously meeting in a public place & talking would be a great first step. Then seeing what happens naturally, no rush or pressure! I'm pretty intense at work so I want to enjoy my time away from it, by being laid back & enjoying your company. I would hope you would, too!
