What would you do?

We don't receive too many emails to begin with. Most of the time the e mails that we do get are well written and says a little something about the person/person's that send it. To me, it let's me know what the person is interested in. This is the way that I like to receive my e mails.

On the other hand, sometimes we get the one line e mails. "Let's get together" or "Let's try something" just doesn't interest me enough to send an e mail back. What would I write back to something like that anyway? Are the people looking to hear "OK, let's go"?

I like to get to know who I am speaking with first before going out to meet them. I also let people know who I am so that there is no awkwardness in meeting.

Am I wrong in thinking this way? What would you do in this type of situation? Would you repond to "Let's get together"?

Whether the email is a one liner or a well written one, I wouldn't reply if I am not interested. Some people might think that they suit what I am looking for but most of the times they are totally wrong. This is a small issue so no worries. Just reply if you want to.

We all have our preference... Do whatever is comfortable for you. There is no wrong or right, just be polite

well i think this goes along with your last post..it is impossible to "Get to know" someone by a couple of email...most of us are looking for some sort of sexual relationship or we would be at a different site..most people want to at least somewhat know the other person, be comfortable around them and their thought process, etc
I think that blogging allows people to do that...i hope that by blogging someone who is interested in some sort of sexual relatonship will know alittle more about me..and give things a better chance to work....but the email line of "hey lets get together" generally does not work

MrNutz- Thank you for your understanding. No matter what the situation is, I always do try to be polite because you never know what can come back and bite you in the ass.

Night- You could not speak(write) truer words. It seems as though we are on the same wavelenght.

My advice would be this: if anything about an email makes you uncomfortable; dont' respond. Trust your instincts.

A two-word email from one person might raise your hackles, whereas the same words from someone else might spark your interest.

Just go with your gut and be careful.

As a rule, I ignore the "overly simple" emails. I don't like feeling like an afterthought.

I could be wrong about this, but I feel that the amount of time and thought put into an e-mail is indicative to the amount of thought and attention that person will give to you in person. I'd love to send an e-mail that says; "you're hot, wanna hook up," and instantly get a million replies from a million horny ladies. Of course, it never works that way. (Even in my dreams!

Keep your standards. I'll bet you do in every other aspect of your life.
