    I'm still amazed how many guys on this site have poor manners. I was brought up to at least say a simple "thank you" when someone compliments you on something. Have we become so self-absorbed or full of ourselves that we can't extend a simple human gesture and show some gratitude? I sure hope not! icon_smile.gif

    The internet, where manners come to die.

    Don't take it too seriously dude, the world wide web depersonalizes communications so common 'thank yous' and 'your welcomes' are lost in the virtual world.

    I had rather believe people are nice, generally.

    Just learn to have thick skin and don't take it personally my friend! I have given dozens of heartfelt compliments, words of encouragement, and emotional support countless of times to a lot of guys on this website, and rarely do I get any feedback much less a thank you publicly from many of them! just remember one thing, when you give someone a compliment or share a word of encouragement or a heartfelt advise, do it because you want to help and not because you are looking to be liked! when you are being supportive the rewards is in the giving and not in the receiving!! unless of course if you are contemplating in joining "The popularity Contest Club" here on RealJock!?

    Some thimes taking a compliment publicly on this site has others thinking you're vain and narcissistic UNLESS you state you don't deserve such a compliment, or are angrily refusing to accept such a compliment and insult the ones that did. Then all is cool. O.o

    You know, a recent topic about being an RJ sweetheart came up, and we have yet to post to it, although we were mentioned several times. Saying thanks to those that like us may appear to be bragging, and so we hesitate.

    Sometimes saying less is saying the most!.....you guys deserved all of the praises given and much more....

    ......and "manners" are a "culturally subjective response"...... so, I say don't take too much posted on the web seriously.....icon_rolleyes.gif

    Those statements seem true. And I agree with you. I just think if everyone THINKS that way, RJ will become that way.

    BUT. It doesn't have to be that way. Everyone should think the other way. One person sets an example for another. And soon, RJ will become a better, friendlier place. It is not that hard at all. icon_wink.gif

    Well Meninlove I am going to put you on the spot, and I don't care if I made you blush!! icon_redface.gif or make others think you are bragging or vain if you thank me!

    Your words of encouragement and wise advise have helped some guys on this website, when others have not! and that is worth mentioning! if you say thank you or admit to it by no means that is going to make you look vain! I think is perfectlyt healthy and even admirable to recognize all the good things one does for everyone else!

    I don't think anybody has good manners 'all' the time, everyone has bad days or lacks of attention, especially on the internet. And everyone has a different interpretation of what it means to have 'good manners'.

    In other words, you can't please everyone.

    What baffles me is when you send a note to someone and they immediately check your profile to see (apparently) if you are cute or not, or whatever, and never actually read the note.

    Not every note that is sent is about sex or hookup or whatever. Read the damned thing, it might be useful icon_razz.gif

    I dont think that necessarily rude, though, at most just a bit stupid.

    "Bad manners" have become rampant in American society.

    It's become all about Me. Me. Me. Me.

    Most of the men here with whom I have exchanged words have been more than polite...even friendly. There are exceptions to this rule but that's also the case in real-time world

    I agree especially in the real world, people seem to not have these traits at all, but I honestly see it more with women then men. There have been times in have held the door open for women and they just walk right in not saying a word... RUDE!

    I was brought up to say

    Yes please
    No thank you
    Thank you

    What about people who text in front of their friends or answer a call? Really? You can't wait for that for later, show some respect to your friend and give them their time they are spending with you. You're not that important Mr. President!

    Amen! Lack of manners will quickly kill this site like it has many others.

    99% of the time, people at least say thank you. If "thank you" is the only response I get, I just take it they are not interested, but at least they were nice enough to respond. However, a couple of weeks ago, I really clicked with this guy's profile I read. It was like reading War and Peace and I got carpal-tunnel syndrome from the scrolling, but I really related to it. I sent him a very nice email telling him what great character and outlook he had. (Never once said anything sexual, because frankly I've seen much hotter.) He reads my email but no response. After a week, I sent a quick note just asking if he got my email. His response was that he gets soooo many emails and he checks his email from his phone so he rarely responds. So get the fuck off the website! Why write a 984,200 word profile if you're not going to fucking communicate? Jeeeezzzzzusss.

    I usually don't reply to things like hotlist adds... sometimes picture comments. But if someone sends me a message I always reply at least once to say thanks!

    Edit: someone mentioned always getting their profile checked after they send a message, because they think they're being checked for attractiveness. I -always- check a profile before I reply to a message.. but it's to see if there's anything on your page interesting enough to make conversation about!
