So how do you handle unexplained dropped responses after previous, frequent, very pleasant exchanges of the type you describe, Pat? This sort of behavior really freaks me out when there's no explanation provided!

Marie, there is nothing you can do. If people want to be like that, at this age, we are not going to teach them differently!

If you want, you can send an email saying, I am sorry that after our X exchanges of messages on here that you appear to no longer wish to communicate, given that you have not responded to my message of x weeks ago. I enjoyed talking to you, and wish you all the best.

That way you get the last word (if that matters to you), and maybe just maybe, someone will get the idea that they should have "ended" it more properly than to have just faded away.

But most people won't get the message, so you will be wasting your breath in general.

But if it makes you feel better than do it.

Sometimes I do, but most of the time I don't care enough!

Bottom line is they are not interested. They found someone else, something else more important has come up, their subscription expired and they don't care anymore...whatever it may be....they are not interested.

Well your phone should have the T9 method on there to spell words out.

I've got the kind of phone that when you show it to the Sprint salesman, he says, "Whoooooaaa! I've never seen one of these before. My granddad told me about these, but..."

Thanks for your input, Pat. I need to work on accepting the fact that the person is simply not interested. I guess I'm mad at myself for hoping a relationship was developing.

Hi Marie,

That is frustrating. It's also frustrating when a person has no motivation to email you consistently. The "lukewarm" I call them. Maybe you're dealing with one of those and you'll get a surprise email from one of them all of a sudden. Actually just block them from your list so if that's the case they get stonewalled. LOL. It's like a preemptive "get lost" type of thing. laughing

Thanks to all the advice, it is greatly appreciated.

I try to always reply to people who message me. I will try to ask more questions and suggest texting!
