    Someone had started another forum with regard to guys not responding to messages you have sent.
    What do you make of guys who don't acknowledge that you have added them to your buddy list? Do you only add guys with whom you have had many back and forth emails? I had exchanged some emails with someone recently regarding a relocation I was planning and appreciated their feedback, so I added them to my buddy list. But they never responded, only to say "Do I know you?" I wrote back to recap our previous email conversation and the guy wrote back saying, :Oh Yeah, good luck on the move" but then never responded to my buddy invite? What's up with that? I added him only for friendship reasons.

    Why would he have to respond to your Buddy-Listing of him?

    The Buddy List thing is weird. After reading previous threads on this topic, it just seems to create lot of drama. That's why I don't use it. icon_lol.gif

    There are no set rules. I only buddy list people that I talk to regularly, and I usually wait for the other person to buddy list me first.

    OP try this..send an e-mail asking the guy for permission to buddy list him..

    .sounds weird.. i do it ...it makes a big difference..

    only 1 guy didn't respond and just like you...we were mailing each other back and fourth.. except.. twice a week for 1 1/2 months...he never responded to me asking to buddy list him first..
    ...The buddy list is a weird thing like Rich said!

    I think that a 'correspondence list' or 'address book' visible only to that one person would be beneficial (to keep track of people you sometimes correspond with) and eliminate uncomfortable situations.

    As for visible buddy list and hot list- if you have a need for others to know - that's up to you.

    I used to think sending a "thanks" for a hot listing was the right thing to do but I got over that. All the guy is doing is clicking on a link. If he wants to have a conversation, he can start a conversation by writing a message.

    I'm becoming amused by the sense of entitlement some guys on this site have over simply clicking on a link.

    A little bit of effort works wonders..
    And what if the guy secretly want's to kill hates you?..
    If you send that letter..and he doesn't respond..Clear signal!!

    would you say that the guy became your buddy? i don't know about u, but i see buddy as someone who is your friend and with whom you communicate often. from where i'm typing he's not your buddy.

    he's not into you. he has no interest in being your friend, much less your buddy. you are not hot enough for him.
