(quote) William-1004521 said: I ask for advice, sage wisdom, or just a reality check. I was having a decent conversation with a woman on here and suddenly she quits responding, my initial reaction is to send another email, but don't want to be over bearing. It's been about a week since I sent the message and I have seen her online. Has she lost interest or does the email system on here just suck?
I know what you mean, William. What I come across more often than what you described is members not responding at all. I've sent emotigrams and emails and get nothing back. A simple response saying you're not interested is much better than ignoring my attempts at communication. Plus, as you mentioned, the first reaction is to send another message just in case the person didn't receive it for some reason. On the other hand, nobody wants to be overbearing. So my plea to everybody out there is this: Please respond when somebody takes the time to contact you. Even if you're not interested, it is curteous to thank the person for their interest.
