    Let's say a guy here on RJ writes you an e-mail, you reply, he answers your reply, and you reply back, then ... that's it!

    Just wondering how do you keep the conversation going? does this happens a lot?

    Have you my dear reader have actually made friendships on this site?

    If you've finished the conversation, then that's it, right? Why continue small-talk if there's nothing interesting to talk about?

    Usually if someone writes to me and asks me a question, I'll answer it. Sometimes I'll have a question to ask myself. Same vice versa; if I ask someone a question and get an answer, I'll tell them thanks, and I'll think to myself either, "this person is really cool for answering honestly" or "this person took what I was saying the wrong way" etc. When I have more questions, I don't think twice to PM them and ask again. But when the information requested has been transferred, why continue with mindless babble?

    Then again, no, I haven't made any friends on this site that have turned into something where I meet the person in real life and go talk to them. There are people that I find friendly, and people I think positive thoughts about, but we don't hang out on weekends and grab a beer or anything.

    The mailing back and forth thing has an expiration date.

    To answer your last question, I actually have met some good friends on this site.

    If you're interested, why not send another e-mail on a different topic? If he's interested, he'll probably write back and if he doesn't, well there are thousands of other guys on this site.

    Eh if the mail things goes stale then I just send private pics to them and that gets their attention.




    Of course my private pics are of other hot guys at the gym I wish I was. I can't help it if people think it's me. LoL.

    I've had email conversations seemingly go on forever, but I really didn't mind. Other times, the conversation doesn't go on beyond a simple hello. I can tell by how the first emails start off whether there is potential for it to be a long conversation. Usually I try to talk about them and their interests or hobbies, or how they are doing - ultimately it is a mastery of small talk.

    If they don't respond or show much interest in talking with you, then it's probably a key indication they are not into you. Normally at that point, I just decide to let it go - there is no point talking to someone who genuinely has no interest in you. Yes, I have made several really good friends on here icon_biggrin.gif - some of which I speak to daily.
