You're not being weird on your idea, it's just something you like. Here is one I received from a gal after sending her just a simple emotigram of (Hello): she replied, "Hi there. Thanks for the emotigram! Good luck to you on here and wishing you a blessed Christmas :)." Can I use something similar to gals when I'm not interested in her at that moment. However, I sometimes just run out of things to work with her to continue the conversation. I personally don't think I'm being rude if I don't reply to their message if I have nothing better to say at that moment. Just for fun, I'll wish every lady who has sent me a message (awaiting reply) using a Happy New Year emotigram .
WHAT???? Having too many messages to respond to on here is totally a guy problem and why I say it is easier for Catholic guys than us women. The pool of women is much larger to choose from. I do hope that there is a not interested button in place soon. But I also think that a simply note saying "best of luck to you" would convey a similiar thought and also fulfill the charitable aspect of it. Remember men; charity in ALL things. What would St. Joseph do?
