How Do YOU Handle Receiving Awkward RJ E-mails?

    I get these things from time to time, often from someone here who could be my grandson. I guess from guys who are checking Profiles and sending out e-mails like dropping bait to see what nibbles they get. I just got this one moments ago:

    show me private photos silverdaddy

    OK, typical pattern -- from a new member here, terse and not even a "please" with a basically empty Profile himself and no photos of his own.

    I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be flattered by the "silverdaddy" or not -- I've got at least a little ways to go to full silver, and I certainly am not a member of that site, either. The odd thing is, for once he's nearly as old as I am!

    Well, he can rest easy, I won't reveal his RJ member name, I never do that. But I really can't reply to him. I'll just ignore it, which I suppose is rude, but otherwise I might encourage more of these from him.

    Does this happen to you, and what do you do about it?

    When someone I've never exchanged emails with "unblocks their private photos for me," I block their profile. That's just kind of icky.

    Im fairly new to this site, but I have gotten about a dozen or so awkward e-mails like this. I have responded back, (i respond to everyone) but have done so in a way that shows no interest. Friendly, but not inviting in any way. If they insist icon_eek.gif then I stop responding.

    Well, this really isn't a cruising or dating site. It's a site for gay fitness & health, with a hefty amount of other stuff, to which I admittedly contribute heavily myself.

    My profile clearly says I have a partner and I'm monogamous. DO NOT hit on me, for pics, or for cyber, or for ANYTHING sexual. Can these guys not read? icon_rolleyes.gif

    I usually don't reply. I have been told I am hot before I have said thanks and that I appreciate the compliment. Then the guy will email be back saying "do you think I am hot too?" WTF is that?!?! I thought about replying with hysterical laughter because that was my real life reaction, but I didn't want anyone going and getting all sad haha.

    (1) "Unlock your private pics" from someone I've never talked to -- I ignore

    (2) Somebody hot lists me - I send a "thank you" reply

    (3) Somebody I've never talked to "Buddy lists" me - I don't reply

    (4) General "hello" e-mail from someone with no pics and no profile info -- I usually reply with a simple "Hello. Why don't you fill out your profile so I can get to know you a little better?"

    I almost always reply. Sometimes I'll write back something to the effect, I don't think we've ever chatted before - tell me something about yourself - can you send me a face pic? Usually, I never hear from them again.

    Yes...I've had a few. I play around with them a bit to see where they're coming from. If they're honest and just want to see and talk about life, sure.

    If they keep up the language and show actual porn, I will report them.

    But, like myself, in the beginning, I was just trying to be humorous and sexy when I asked something. I had offended the guy, oops! And then I quit emailing him. My fault.

    I have a guy (big and sexy all over) but he's constantly emailing me with pictures. One other guy talked with me online and was ready to fly out, seriously!

    It ebbs and flows. Fortunately, rj has block buttons and report forms for abuse.

    I try to respond as kindly as possibly or equally awkwardly. Lord knows I've probably sent some real dipshit emails to guys before. Please don't judge me! icon_redface.gif

    They don't bother to read profiles at all. They just hit up pics they like.

    I usually just say "Please read my profile - Thanks!"

    Very often I actually get apologies for not reading and it ends on a very friendly note. More often they just disappear.

    I get these emails from a supposed prince in Nigeria, seeking assistance with smuggling his fortunes out of his country. Seems legit, right? icon_lol.gif
