talking and then nothing?

A curious trend that I've experienced lately. I've had a quite a few contacts recently. These contacts included more than a few exchanges of e-mails. The curious thing is how after these correspondences, it all of a sudden stops?

I don't get it? I wonder why anyone would share a few ideas and give no indication that there was not a spark or interest. I guess being on the Internet makes it easier to let it go without any explanation. In the medium where everyone is anonymous, it's jus too easy, to not take into consideration the other persons feelings?

But are there feelings? I think in some cases just sharing ideas can give some people a feeling of knowing, or connection to the person their e-mailing? I won't go into my take on the those out there that are dependent on the cyber community for their social interaction. And those I'd really be worried about going psycho. No, I'm talking about how to deal with my perceived lack of courtesy. Being adults, should we not be able to acknowledge and let the other person know?

I guess to each their own? And I guess it's not any different than the way people act in the regular world too. I guess I had a preconceived idea that in this world, the people would be more responsible? Or at least more upfront and real? If anything , I'd think it be easier to tell someone off, or let them know it's not there? Hell, people usually have trouble doing things face to face. So what's up with this?

Just some lazy thoughts.

From my experiences..if someone wants to meet me and I can't meet them within a week..they lose interest and go on to the next great set of hooters..
