    Why Do Guys Not respond to a guys e-mail? Even to say sorry not interested!

    Why do we need to ignore?

    I usually reply to everything but some people just don't go through the common curtsies over the internet because there's no face to face contact. I don't think you should take it so personal man, shit flows down stream.

    Just cuz you send an email doesnt mean he has to answer. You have no right to think you can obligate someone else. Just like someone doesn't have to answer the door or the phone.

    This used to bother me, too. Especially with guys who made a point of seeming friendly in their profiles, and saying things like "Drop me a note," or "Hit me up!"
    Anyway, I decided I wouldn't be interested in the ignorers anyway, so it doesn't bother me now. icon_biggrin.gif

    Because once you reply to someone in whom you're not interested, you open the line of communication which only prolongs the inevitable.

    Not really...a sorry not interested, actually keeps the guy from NOT responding, rather than keeps messaging you???

    A lot of guys don't take the 'sorry I'm not interested' reply gracefully.

    It took me while to learn that online no response is a response. It means 'sorry, I'm not interested'. In other words "i'm not interested enough in you to reply". icon_smile.gif

    Yes. Some guys don't get "I'm not interested" and it turns into a question and answer session... instead of a simple "This guy blew me off oh well..."

    It depends on the guy.. If there's no picture I will not respond 99.8% of the time. If it's one word.. i will respond 50% of the time. If I am just not physicaly attracted to you I will respond 70% of the time....

    Yeah, I can understand the idea behind not responding because you aren't interested in someone but it still seems pretty rude to me.

    As long as the message isn't "Want 2 cam lol" or "Let's f*ck," I'll reply.

    I have to say - I get a fair amount of mail from guys here & I try to always respond. I notice guys respond to anything I send out as well. I haven't seen any issues with a non-responder.

    I don't expect every guy who e-mails me to be my Next Love !
    There are guys on this site including myself that value friendships..

    I didn't think you needed to be attracted to a guy to reply to an email. Some people are very shallow if you have to look at photos/age/physique before replying to someone. Maybe it's just to say "hi, saw your profile and see you're from my hometown." There's nothing committal to that and no reason to judge.

    Replying to emails requires using up valuable energy stores that would be better used in the gym. Typing is hard work, ya know.

    They don't wanna make the effort. Just move on. There is a plethora of fathomable conclusions we could fabricate as to why. However, everyone does it for their own reasons. Write them off like

    Shiver and shake, quiver and quake
    no denying you'll whither and break
    You slithering snake, gibbering fake, fibber and flake
    I'll twist you into a different shapes
    And toss you in Michigan Lake, for fisherman sake
    If this is a dream you'd wish you can wake
    Every dis you can take, personal
    We ain't friends trying to make amends

    Some people are dicks, some are not. It sucks but that is reality.
