    I don't know how people can send the same stuff like 'Hey, how are you?' or 'Sup'.. I mean its TOO common, ridiculous almost, but at the same time I guess people work with what they know works ... icon_rolleyes.gif

    SPICE IT UP PPL!
    If you've received mail from me you know what I'm talking about.o

    Hot guys incoming

    I state quit clearly in my profile that I detest these sort of messages... so when I get one like this, I dont even feel guilty if I delete without replying because you would think that reading a profile FIRST would make sense, eh?

    But yeah, some people are just lazy.... errr like me, I find that even when I get a message I like I kinda get to it a bit later! ha

    Fed up, much?

    Procrastination is the leading cause of hurt feelings on this site lmao.
    No I actually do it too, it's not an obligation to return messages instantly, and only clingy people would worry about how fast someone responded to them.

    But for the love of Hesús, blank profiles without 'Picture in Review'...and same goes for people WITH face pics but are not Verified..what gives?!

    a-bit fed-up

    JustRandom's definitely a 10

    I'm not the biggest fan of being asked how my day is. Or my weekend, for that matter.

    I just presume they are genuinely retarded.

    No Picture.
    Years older.
    In another country.
    No text.
    How are you?

    Like, wheres the appeal? I didnt even realise until recently that when I clue into how empty their profile is after getting the message I screw my face up in annoyance, like smelling a really lemony egg fart.

    You're preaching to cattle. Believe me I used make this a point but then stopped caring. It really boils down to either laziness or lack of intelligence on their end. The only thing you can do now is just delete their message without replying. Ironically they might call you an asshole for "ignoring them." But don't feed the trolls.

    I think a funny/witty/endearing message that picks up off of something particular from one's profile/thread posts/pics, or something original and intriguing in it's own right makes a message worth replying to.....




    (or if the guy is just realllllllllllllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy hot...either or ....jk...Mostly;)

    Yeah but its also annoying if you think they are really hot but refuse to unlock their privvate pics even if you yourself have tons to show which are all public - that grinds my gears too. Oops peter griffin...

    Hmmmm... I hear you....However, I usually find that asking for somebody to unlock their pics is a bit forward, especially when they most likey would have done so by their own volition after perhaps a few messages without feeling they were being prodded into it..... Perhaps ;p

    There's also the other end of the spectrum. It really sucks when you take the time to send a nice email with content specific to that person and it just gets deleted or a simple "thanks" reply.

    Either way it sucks.

    Excuse me but soyfan, somrandom, and sage I am still having problems interpreting your younger hip Queens English. I only know the colonial Queens English 60's I think!

    If I hear you right you are complaining about getting an over abundance of drab dreary adoring emails asking you SUP!

    From genuinely retarded guys with:

    1. No picture......Not everyone is as witty charming and flaming hot as JAKE

    2. Years older.....30 and over chicken hawks.....yep not pretty

    3. In another country ....where Scotland, Whales????

    4.Text.......not everyone past penmanship in school

    5. How are you?....Fine thanks for asking guys!

    I guess it is up to Ariodante to handle the situation for you

    Some don't even receive mail so I'm sure they'd be more than happy to read your unwanted mail

    See, here lies what's REALLY going on, it's sooo annoying to get a plain e-mail, unless the guy is hot, then it's totally acceptable. icon_razz.gif

    I think it's because some people don't want to go through all the trouble of looking at your profile, thinking up something UBER creative and thoughtful and sending it, only to have the guy look at your profile, see that he's not into you and then not reply. I'm fine with the common "how are you"s and I send them myself sometimes (although with a little extra) as a "Am I hot enough for you?" kind of message. That way I don't waste my time. What I don't like is if it goes something like this:

    you: "hey, how are you?"
    me: "Everything's grand. how'r thing's with you?"
    you: "great. what's up?"

    We are just venting out annoance at the fact that people message where there is just no incentive to reply. Fair enough if you can speak fluent english no matter where you are from, and only have private pics, and have only written a bit... but what myself and the thread creator are saying is there are people who message you, as if to expect a reply, when it would take too much time to complete a message exchange just to find out basic things you could find out quickly if they had just uploaded some pictures/written something in their profile.

    Still...

    1. You dont have to be hot, you just have to have a face
    2. There are plenty of good looking older guys
    3. Scotland, wales, yes. Also many other all over the world that I am not particularly willing to travel to just to meet the person.
    4. I suppose yuo prefer the type of profiles that say "just ask"?
    5. "How are you" - if this is the first thing I get, whats stopping me from thinking the rest of the interaction will be this mild?

    Point is, be quick and concise - have something to say, or dont say anything at all. Its nice to be polite, but not nice to take somebodys time with something as stagnant as the aforementioned message style.

    I know, right? All I can think of when I see it is the old English word meaning "to have dinner."
