    I often message people on here or other sited too... not even looking for anything in particular just to make friends... and people constantly just ignore and never write back. Or I complement their photos and they never respond... Even though a I do it with good intentions, if people don't want to be bothered for whatever reason, either because of my age or I'm not their type, is it really that hard to just simply respond with a "not interested" than to just ignore and be rude?

    Honestly don't let it get to you. If they don't reply just move on. I mean in a prefect world, everyone would reciprocate but such thinking is a folly.

    Continue to be who you are and don't be jaded about it.

    It ain't worth it to go over such a small matter.

    I find myself not replying to a lot of things, especially if I think it may lead to something I'm not particularly interested in.

    A guy messaged me today, I read it, and had every intention of eventually replying (when I had more time). Within two hours, I checked back and found another message from the same guy saying "guess yo'ure not interested, sorry to have bothered you". That certainly didn't help his case and I no longer have any intention to message him back.

    I find some guys on here have crazy expectations. I try to reply to most messages, as long as they're relatively substantial (Even though I sometimes do take my time to get back to people). But honestly, it's a gay mens website with a bunch of shirtless dudes. With improper grammar and only one or two sentences in a message, it's sometime hard to separate the guys who are genuinely interested and the guys who are just looking to satisfy their horniness.

    I totally agree!
    one problem is that my internet is so intermittent that It doesn't send messages that I thought it did. Or even worst, I will spend a while writing it, and then I'll loose my connection, and the entire message would be lost.

    BTW with your looks who the hell isn't into you?

    It's the internet. It was made for unavailable persons.

    We can create any fantasy or ideal image of ourselves without ever exposing what truly exists. Inflections, prosody, pragmatics all get thrown out the door with a keyboard in front of us. What could be better?

    Don't take anything too serious on the internet. Try giving someone a compliment in real lifeicon_smile.gif I do it all the time. People can't run then.
