I don't know if this something that occurs only on this site or within the gay community or just with people in general but I’ve discovered a pretty disturbing trend on RJ. In almost all cases if I receive a message from someone I will send them a response. Obviously some of the more outlandish/hypersexual messages sometimes get ignored but generally I can find something to say back to them. I have made some great friends here, some really hot, some not so much. But a lot of my less attractive friends complain that when they message guys the just don't respond. I have even experienced that myself a couple of times. If someone sends you a message, that is complimentary/respectful, you at least owe them some sort of acknowledgement for trying to reach out to you. Even if you politely decline whatever connection the try to establish, it’s better than treating them like they don’t even exist-that’s grimy and if you do that you are a dusty person. If someone takes the time out to try to get to know you, but you don’t feel the same, grow some balls and just tell them that. Because some of what people do on here is just bad manners.
