    I don't. I'm good at sustaining conversations but it's kind of my opinion that if you message me you should have SOMETHING to say.

    exactly, matty. that's all i'm sayin'.

    paradox, i'm not saying i don't enjoy a good chat, i just think if someone IM's you, they should say more than "hey," and when i say "hi, what's up?" they say more than "not much," then say NOTHING at all.

    I've had that happen to me a number of times, though not too much here. it's very annoying. Guys who call you and have nothing to say. And even when you try to carry along the conversation on your own, when you try to engage them, they still have nothing to say. You speak, you pause, you wait, and nothing. But he keeps calling you.

    This is what caller ID is for. If it happens here, just respond in kind.

    Wassup?
    Wassup?

    Sometimes it's good to respond to a stupid, pointless question with the same stupid, pointless question.

    Or ignore him altogether.

    I try not to blind side someone I do not know with an IM. Always email and ask if he is interested in a chat. No response? Then that's a big clue and move on. Should he be away from the computer and IS interested, he'll get back to you.

    if someone messages me with 'hey,' i am usually unimpressed and will either ignore it, or respond in like. usually, after responding with a 'hey' of my own, there's a good long silence, and then i leave. lol

    bahaha too many times.. but i hate it when they try to get you to cam or show nudes. Sorry bub not interested. I'll chat if you can keep a conversation going but other than that most don't care for what i have to say.

    My favorite conversation:

    Him: Hey, how are u?
    Me: Pretty good... u?
    Him: Bored, horny...
    Me:

    Can we just accept the fact that every guy is horny to some extent 24/7? And as for bored, due to your conversational skills or lack thereof, now so am I!

    HAHAHA! LOL! I actually get the occaisonal IM in which I don't get anything...not even a "hey" or a "hi". Just a blank nothing. I give them a few minutes and if they don't say anything, I close the window.

    Matty, I am with you there,

    I am very gregarious and love to talk but at least have an idea what you want to chat about before you IM.

    When I have IM turned on, it happens to me all the time. So, I turn IM off. It really bugs me to get an IM from someone I've never talked to before. At least exchange a few "mail" messages with me first. It's like calling some stranger up on the phone, out of the blue, and expecting them to hold a conversation with you. WTF!?

    Sometimes the words get lost between the time they hit send and the convo box opens. I have had this happen a lot here. I usually say 'Hi...I think the IM lost what you typed.'

    If they didn't say anything then I'll move on, but I usually try to see if it was the technology and not the person before moving away from the convo.

    Well there is that and something I call a...."drive by camming".

    You get an IM out of nowhere from someone you've never spoken to and bam, the cam starts and there is a hard one staring you right in the face. icon_cool.gif

    Usually followed by...."c2c?". icon_surprised.gif

    I don't and after about 10 minutes it times out. I really am tempted to try to turn the function off simply because it really interferes when I am trying to post in the forums. Nothing like the cursor disappearing in a reply post or jumping to the main page and losing your reply you are trying to post. Ticks me off it's so annoying.
