    This applies only online I guess
    If a guy messaged you and you didn't find him attractive (body and/or face), would you still chat with him? Do some people really "talk to anyone" like they might say in their profiles? BE HONEST!!

    It's OK if you haven't responded to someone cuz you didn't like their pics. I am sure we have all done it. Oh and not responding to picless/headless profiles doesn't count.

    If it's not the pics, is it the profile?

    I admit to pick and choosing icon_redface.gif

    I don't talk to everyone, but I will talk to anyone if I have time and there was a proper conversation starter.


    of course there is a list of things that will automatically make me ignore someone.

    yes even though i know that some guys simply want to force me into a situation that i'm not comfortable with. there's nothing wrong with just chatting it up.

    I do. If someone sends me a message/IM, I'm at least going to give them the time of day to say hello. They might be short conversations, but I will at least say something back.

    I think I've sent a few replies back to everyone who's taken the time to say hello first. But after one or two back and forths I am guilty of just letting the exchange die, if it feels like it's just being polite and isn't going anywhere meaningful. They usually don't.

    it just depends on the situation. It personally doesn't bother me if someone ignores me. I just say "he's just not that into me" and move on.

    No, but it's not based on looks. I'm just a flake. icon_rolleyes.gificon_razz.gif

    Yes, I will reply to message from almost anyone. My primary purpose on RJ isn't to find dates or a hookup, so looks don't really matter that much. As long as the conversation is enjoyable, I'll continue talking to anyone.

    yes I will IM back anyone that IM's me ... I'm not that much of self-centered douche ... I am flattered when some one was impressed enough by my profile that they IM'd so I at least say hi .... the day will come when the only IMs you get are from princes some where near Zambia and Botswana that want to filter their millions through your back account

    The only emails I do not respond to (so far), are the ones from Africa stating that they're looking for friends. Those emails usually end up with that person asking for some sort of monetary assistance.

    NEXT!!!

    I've replied to most of the guys who have messaged me on here (including faceless etc etc pics). It's common courtesy. Even if I have zilch interest. The good thing about me though is I don't expect the same courtesy, which is probably why I'm more than likely not to message anyone on here.

    I like talking to people and getting to know different folks, so I will respond to almost anyone who messages me. The only exception would be if the messages were negative in tone/trollish, which so far I haven't experienced. (knocks on wood)

    I talk to everyone. There are some people I hit it off with, and others I have a harder time talking to. But I always try to give everyone a chance.

    This! I haven't been on RJ long but I have another profile on another gay forum, and I always replied. I'm just too nice to ignore someone.

    So is it safe to say that guys who don't respond to you at all are probably not "interested" which means they are actually looking for more than friends?

    Let's put aside stuff like business, etc

    Either they're not interested or they're too busy. Or both!

    no one actually looks for friends on the internet. The primary goal is always the "...or more" part. The "friends" thing is people's way of not "jinxing" the "hangout" with "expectations". Yea there are a few lonely souls who are actually looking for friends on the internet, but who wants to deal with that lol.

    I don't care how unique some guys' messages are... if I'm not interested physically, I don't reply.

    I'll talk to anyone... as long as they know that I'm not looking for anything more than friendship... most of the WOYM thread guys hangout in goole chat at night... I think that would qualify as talking to anyone.
