If I indicate via email a willingness to sign a contract but never sign it, am I bound to it?
Question Details: If someone asked me to sign a non-compete contract, and I respond via email "Happy to sign it" but they never give me the contract. Am I bound to signing that contract or bound to its terms? I met a potential business partner and they told me about their business. However, I also learned that they were lying to their clients and now I don't want to be involved with their business. Still, I see that there are business opportunities with the general model and I think hat I could serve the market better. I had indicated via email a willingness to sign a non-compete agreement, however I never received the agreement. Am I somehow bound to my statement of a willingness to sign this agreement?
