I think I have attempted to talk to close to 500 members.. and only three have responded... this makes it rather hard for me to actually meet anyone.. Oh well I guess I was just venting a bit.. Thanks for listening.

It is very hard sometimes. But I think if you show your personality here in the blogville...you will find that you have a little more success in connecting with someone. Good luck to you.

In now way do I mean to be hurtful. Having said that, here's a story:

You can make a hole in a coconut just large enough for a monkey to put his hand through it (if the hand is not in a fist). Once you place a prized object inside the hole, the monkey will reach inside, grab the prize, and make a tight fist in an attempt to hold on to the prize. Being that the monkey has made a fist, he canot get his hand out of the coconut - even if he tries for hours.

The point of this story is that at some point, one must realize that his approach is not working. It is at that point that he should start experimenting with different approaches to solving his problem. Make sure you try different techniques when you send an e-mail (witty, serious, polite, humorous, etc.). Also, you might look at the type of people you are attempting to contact - do you really have something in common? Finally, if all else fails, ask them to be very honest and frank in letting you know what you are doing wrong.

Good luck!!!
