    Most of the time I hear back from guys, I have messaged. I would say 80 percent of the time.

    I have ignored a couple because the message was a little strange. One guy wanted a private e-mail address.

    I never ignore. I treat people how I'd like to be treated. Unfortunately, a lot of guys here can't say the same.

    i feel like i get ignored quite a bit (then again, i rarely initiate a message). i try for the most part to reply to messages. i even respond to the generic "hey how are you?" messages. however, if after one exchange i sense the conversation remaining very superficial (eg, asking "how was your weekend" right after asking "how are you?" or commenting about my body), then i'll start ignoring. the way i see it, i've already made the effort to be nice, so i'm not willing to continue wasting time exchanging back and forth inane messages when it's clear the only reason they're messaging is to hit on me.

    Is asking "how is your weekend?" superficial?

    I will admit to ignoring a couple of messages...but they are usually from an 18 year old living in So. Africa who says I'm hot, and they just joined RJ within the last 24 hours. Sure, I'd be happy to send you money for a plane ticket...icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif
    I am rarely ignored by others to whom I have sent messages.

    I always get confused when a guy's profile (on anysite) says something like "say something other then hello". I mean wtf? Not only does it immediatly kill my intrests but what exactly are you supposued to say? Sorry, I'm not going to validate you in the first email which you aren't likely to respond to anyway icon_rolleyes.gif

    Some of us get a lot of generic "hello" or "what's up" messages which ~90% of the time lead to them wanting you to either cam with them or unlock for them, and thus they lead off with "can i see ur pvt pics." ...block. So it's meant to filter out a lot of the crap.

    yes, if the last question he asked was "how are you?" superficial as in lacking substance. sometimes it's pretty obvious when someone has nothing in common with you and are just trying to strike up conversation just for the sake of interacting and hitting on you. however, i always try to respond to the initial "hi how are you?" unless it's a no pic or the person is just plain creepy.

    I always acknowledge every single guy who messages me. I have been ignore once out of one (initial) msg. sent out were I complemented one of the most popular forum (and not to mention unfunny) clown we have here.

    Apparently he only like to read compliments from certain guys. That was the last time I did that. No more compliments unless I heard it first and no more initial msgs. going out.

    This.

    I like IM's. Sometimes they lead to long interesting conversations. Sometimes they start with lewd come ons. Sometimes it's just a boring conversation. And sometimes I leave my IM on and I'm not around when they appear. For any of these and other millions of reasons I'm sure someone's interpreted me as a stuck up asshole for not engaging them in a 3 hour long conversation that led to us getting married.
