I am just wondering why men in their 40's and early 50's are never on chat. There are plenty of 18-40 year olds and more than enough 55-65 year olds. Once in a great while, a man in the age range I am referring to stops in. There are plenty of women in this age range and we have very few men in our age range to talk to. So I am just wondering, why men are not chatting?
I can't speak for anyone other than myself, but I entered one of the chat rooms once a while ago and haven't been back in there since. In high school, I didn't take a typing course, so I still type somewhat slowly and not necessarily accurately.
And as one gent said above in this thread, I like what I type to be somewhat well thought out, and there just isn't time for that in the chat rooms, which move at near the speed of light and have several conversations going on at once.
By the time I would get a response typed out, others would be two or three topics beyond that, and they weren't looking back.
I'm sure that the chat rooms are good for some, but for those of us who aren't light-speed typists, it's like trying to catch a waterfall with a sieve.
