    What is it with some of the guys on this site? I'll leave a compliment on one of their photos, they will view my profile, and never say thank you. I'm not asking to marry you, just have some common manners. Do unattractive people not deserve manners?

    It's a digital world. Not only are we reducing communication to one modality, visual only, communication becomes the epitome of emotional unavailability. This is seen in classrooms across any university where students now look completely expressionless while the professor communicates multi-modally.

    It's fantasy land just like the ego, and we all love it so much or we wouldn't be doing it.

    TheGuyNextDoor saidPhoto comments are a funny one. Many guys won't say thanks and will post them.
    You're 19 and I'm 52. We both will have guys that think we're too young or too old to accept our photos comments and don't say Boo when they do. It happens. Not everyone's going to have the manners that you and I have.
    Just know when they don't, it speaks volumes about them, then move on, but never take it personal.


    Ditto.

    I'll thank someone in real life, but on here I only bother if I recognize them from the forum. I'm nonplussed by compliments from strangers and I don't see any point in pretending to be grateful that they have an opinion of me. I'm not fishing for compliments. I'd much rather see someone read my posts than checks my pics anyway. The forums are the only feature on RJ that matter to me.

    Its old fashion to thank someone for putting a comment on a pic? icon_confused.gif

    EDIT: Oh I see, you're 19, you were born into the internet. Old fashion has a completely different meaning to you icon_lol.gif

    Hmn.. I am not sure of all the 'customs' or what have you for RJ (e.g. when to buddy list, if/when a person should say anything to another, when one should hot list another and what that should mean, etc.). Maybe I'm too caught up in these small things but I have no idea how to talk to another without feeling like a complete idiot. I want to engage and be engaged but not so sure how to. I guess what I dislike the most is sending something to someone and him not replying back. Discourages me from even trying at all, as sad as that sounds. Perhaps I penalize myself too much for not getting any bites back when I show genuine interest in another.

    *Sigh* Interweb homo-sapiens are confusing. icon_confused.gif

    You have no shirtless pictures, therefore your opinion doesn't count. icon_twisted.gif
