    so just curious if this happens to other people. i have found during my time here on realjock, that when i IM or email folks if the person is around my age, 30 and below, very rarely will i get a response. i will see that they stop by my page to look at my profile, but they wont respond. on the other hand, if i email or IM those that are 30 and older, i will almost always get a response. if i do talk to the younger person, most times its a one time thing and thats it, but with the older person, i have found that we tend to converse past that initial conversation, build a repore with each other. and im not emailing inappropriate comments. i usually am looking to strike up a convo because i liked the profile and think the person would possibly be a cool person to know. whats the deal with this?!?

    I tend to answer people, but I find its them who don't respond.

    However, there are a few I chat too on here and they always respond.

    I do know I tend to be very forgetful, I'll read a message but can't respond immediately because I'm busy or my response needs thought and can forget to respond, I usually get there in the end though.

    I'll also always respond to everyone who sends me mail unless its just down right rude.

    BTW nice music.

    I always respond, unless it's something rude and then I just delete it.

    It's good manners to answer messages, maybe it's that younger people haven't got any mannersicon_wink.gif

    I typically respond to people unless they are younger than me. I guess I am kind of opposite though, I just don't like guys younger than I am. ha!

    YES this has been my experience as well.
    It seems many of the younger guys simply don't think anyone older is worth talking with so it's OK to ignore or be rude.... very sad,,, let's hope they change when THEY get older,

    I always respond - it may be good or it may be negative, and to be honest it may take a couple of days. It's just good manners...

    I never noticed the age difference thing

    I've found most guys relatively friendly on here
    but when I contact somebody it's usually with a specific question rather than just the generic "Hi"

    Have to admit I might be bad with the IM's only because
    I leave to computer on when I go in and out of the house
    so I am not always able to respond back... icon_redface.gif Sorry

    Manner and wisdom? lol. My guess is that older guys have more respect. The same things happens to me. I just find it funny that it's almost like they're be physically hurt to respond to a message or an e-mail. Haha. That just goes to show that that are better guys out there for you. Don't give up. icon_razz.gif

    I tend to avoid sending messages (initially) to anyone more than 10 years younger than me. In the rare cases that I do, it's usually to acknowledge something that they said in a forum, I rarely expect a response. Because that it so often the case (such as when I ask a harmless question) and get no response, I will just make a note that this is someone I won't waste my time communicating with.
    If some kid thinks I'm 'creepy old guy' because they read something subversive into questions like: How much of your workout is cardio? Have you been working out for more than a decade? Does your job's schedule get in the way of your workouts? That is their problem. I'm not hitting on someone just because I ask a question, though that seems to be the expectation because of the age difference.
    I will sometimes specifically say that no response is needed.
    If I ask a simple question and get no response at all, I'm less likely to ever consider or even read their posts.
    I often can't respond as quickly as some, but I always try to. If it takes someone a week to get back to me, that's no bother at all since I appreciate the response.

    If someone's clearly taken the time to read your profile and write something releveant to it, (more than just "how are you?," "you're hot etc.") I feel like the polite thing do is to respond. I definately read peoples profiles and compliment them on things that they've written or posted, but some just don't feel like that even deserves just a generic "thanks."

    Sadly, most idioits think that your having sent them an email is much like approaching them in a bar or socail setting and they assume you are "attracted" to them... So they don't "respond" cuz they don't think you are hot or are not attracted to you - in other words they have a huge ego and figure if they ignore you, you'll go away otherwise you'll just be all over them.

    I've complimented guys on here, not because they ARE SOOOO HOT, but because their workout efforts have [obviously] paid off, or I found their profile to be funny as hell, or because - sure you're attractvie" but that doesn't mean that I'm Jonsing for you.

    Agreed, how hard is to to say, "hey, thanks for the compliment/comment", and leave it at that...

    I'd get the hint and the thanks and move on.

    Outside of that, kiss me ass bitch you ain't that purty! icon_biggrin.gif

  • Jun 27, 2008 2:52 PM GMT
    If someone has obviously read my profile and makes a comment or asks a question about it, I usually respond. Usually I get questions of "Is that really you? Are you really eating fire?) that kind of thing. I enjoy my fire arts, and I enjoy talking about them. Sometimes I'll get someone emailing me about something I've said in a forum, and I tend to respond to that as well.

    But if the email is just a "you're hot" or "hi" I generally don't respond.

    That being said, I am also only human, and a busy guy, so sometimes I do miss replying to people that I should reply to.

    Perhaps the younger guys are more likely here for hook-ups and the older guys (who may get fewer e-mails) are here for friends? IDK, but I was raised to be polite, so if someone gives me a compliment I will respond with a thank you. Not to do so in my family was considered rude.

    What's annoying are guys who go on and on about how nice they are on their profiles and/or on the forums and then total zero on a friendly email. LOL

    I'm not naming names though. icon_wink.gif

    Yeah I don't get it either! I mean if someone pays you a compliment and NOT in a crude way, what's wrong with saying "THANKS!" ?????

    I always try to be courteous and respond. Some times it's hard when all you get is an email to look at some private pictures but in that case I usually compliment them in general. Any over the top email from someone I've never had any communication with that starts off with ... wanna fuck? or something like that I just laugh at and ignore. but all others I will definitely be courteous to. I've even sent out compliments to some on behalf of friends who have been looking at the website but aren't members. It's always cool to let someone know they have an admirer. I don't get caught up in the fact if someone doesn't respond. I'm me and do my thing. No expectations.

    I try to answer all emails I receive, even if it's just to politely say 'no thanks, I'm really not here for that.' That said, I tend to be pretty brief in my replies when messaged by somebody I don't know, because I figure if somebody sends me a two-line message, they aren't expecting or wanting a five-paragraph response. If they respond and seem to be interested in 'talking' in more depth, I'm game. Sometimes, though, I do forget to reply to messages. Usually, its when I'm at work, just checking in for a minute or two, or otherwise don't have the time to really sit down and compose a real message...and then later I forget I never got around to writing that message.
