Hi. I'm very new to the site. I have a question and I guess it's geared more to the women. I'm assuming that us guys send more "unsolicited" messages out to the females (not trying to be sexist, that's just my instinct) scratchchin
I realize that everyone here checks their messages at different frequencies. However, when someone sends a message and you're just not interested, do you politely decline or just ignore the message? Personally, I'd rather get the decline than get ignored but maybe that's not the norm.

Thanks for any input you can offer!

Nick..............I think that most ignore. They just don't want to engage at all. I don't ignore them. I've found out that your "locals" are the one that will mostly NOT respond at all.

Johnny, you are so right! I live in Dallas-Ft Worth area. I have messaged folks all in this area, and of maybe 30-40 ONLY ONE REPLIED (declined, but at least responded). Many of the same folks who complain on the forums included! Such fear is unbelievable to me! Therefore, I suppose when I host a CM football game event, I won't need to notify them cuz they wouldn't want to meet any local women ? Hmmm...

Yes, I guess somebody way off knows they can talk without being asked for a date. They can chit-chat without fear of being personally chained down to somebody they can't stand, or that they might run into around town. Locals are more like, 'Oh man, not this guy...he's going to be bugging me at church, work,' etc...

Hello Nick,

I mostly respond and say"Thank you and good luck on your search" or ask a question or two.

For myself I like many types of people and am sincerely interested in them as another person.
I personally think it is rude not to respond. You can at a minimum send an emotio symbol that says "Thank you!" As someone tried to connect. That is a precious thing I think and requires a courteous response. How hard can that be? That was how I was brought up to be respectful and polite. I consider the other person's feelings.

It more important to be nice than it is to be important right?

I like to hear back from people and enjoy even helping them if I can. Especially if I happen to know a lady that would be a good match here.

That is me.

Proper decorum dictates that we at least say, thank-you.

(Imagine someone with an English accent saying the above. That's how I imagine it.) cool

The last two, among others, are true ladies in the finest sense of the word.

You'll find some ladies who aren't interested, won't respond back. Some will. No real rhyme or reason, other than they have their reasons for their choice.

Also, keep in mind that if a woman is not a paying member, she can't read your email or emote, and can't respond back (except for a blank emote) unless she decides to join.
