    I'm not talking about a romantic context here, I'm talking about friends. Why do some guys have one or two great conversations and then seem to lose interest?

    It's almost like it's more difficult to make friends on RJ than to make relationships or sex partners. It get's annoying to send a person a message, get a response that says "how are you" or "what's new in your life" and then spend time writing to them only to get no response to the answers you gave or the questions you asked. The worst thing is when the same person does it over and over. Have they lost interest in chatting with you?

    It may well be that some, but not all, are busy with other things. I agree that it's a matter of civility to respond to email, text, and phone messages.

    Blame it on the cellphone company they use. Most of them suck baws.

    They're just looking for a reaction from another human being before they run, squealing, from the room.....

    It could be that

    - Maybe they are too busy to write a message.
    - Nothing new happened in their life, if I had a boring life I sure as hell wouldn't want to bother you with how boring my life is (some people like to though).
    - They're just not into talking to you.
    - Some friends are better in person instead of messaging online.

    I think there are a ton of reasons why this happens but one reason that I sometimes break off conversations with people on here is that the questions/subject get a little too personal. I respond to pretty much every message and photo comment that I get; however, there's a point when I just start to feel uncomfortable sharing personal information with someone that I don't know in person.

    I'm not saying that you do this but it might be something to think about.

    I get that, but it's hard to keep a conversation going if you don't start talking about something other than the weather. Not sure you bridge that gap.

    The people I've chatted with the longest on here, I've talked about sports and working out. Guys who want to talk about politics, work or sex tend to have a limited repertoire that makes anything long term difficult for me. I just don't want to talk about those subjects online.

    I can see other guys being fine with those topics long term and plenty of others...music, books, movies, whatever interests them. Seems like the key is finding a topic you both like that isn't easily exhausted.

    Gay guys have the attention span of a cat. They don't lose interest...they get distracted by color, movement, or a shiny object. Then they take the litter box for a spin, forget all about you, and spend the rest of the day licking their paws (and other parts).

    Maybe they're just no good at holding conversations online ._.
