Manners online

Oct 24th 2013 new
Email 1 Woman - Like your profile etc
Email 1 Man - Likewise etc
Email 2 woman- How many siblings do you have etc etc?
Email 2 man- Answer questions and ask a couple of queries (eg love your photos- how long have you been skiing?)

Next-------------------- nothing.

Is it rude to start an email exchange and stop corresponding with someone when there remain "open items"? My view is that is poor manners. Am I overreacting? I appreciate many are very busy but I particularly find this odd when someone else has initiated the correspondence embarassed.

Aye,it is always rude to just up and disappear without saying good bye or why.

I think you can let something fizzle out naturally (ie by asking no queries).

"Thanks for your email. I have a cat and a dog. Have a nice weekend" (not inviting a response) in place of:

"What was your experience at Fatima like? Have you been on many pilgrimages?" (inviting a response).

Hi Gabor, it happens frequently for me as well. I was sad at first and I "expected" that they should say something at least to end the communication or "friendship". This makes me confused a lot, I'm not sure if I should care and ask if they are fine, nothing happens to them or not; or keep silence means they want to end communication. Sometimes I think I should ignore this issue, but sometimes I feel I should ask those "friends"... I'm confused sad. I just don't want them to think I'm pursuing them faint, I just want to see them as "friends" at first.

Or at least " Well,it was nice to meet you.. God bless and all the best with your search"

That is straight talking and not being rude.

Are you overreacting? In my opinion, yes.

Think of the example exchange like a casual conversation at a party or other social gathering: such exchanges can be suddenly interrupted in various ways; some times the other person returns to pick up where they left off, other times they don't.

Rather than taking offense at such situations, I suggest viewing them as a gift from God: an opportunity to build one's humility by ignoring the perceived affront and moving on.
