Are Honest and Respectable People so hard to find?


Maybe it's just my way of thinking, but, I believe that if you take the time to send someone an email, you at least deserve the courtesy of a (polite) reply.

Whether the answer is "Yes, I'm interested", or "Sorry, I'm not interested", I would rather hear SOMETHING back.

And before someone says Standard menbers can't send emails - no, but, they can reply to an email sent to THEM. Or show interest with a wink.

I sent an email to a local lady. No reply. Then I figured out that sending contact info in a first email is a no-no. OK,I send another email. No reply, however, she accepts the invite to my friends network. Talk about conflicting signals!

Now let me say right here that it MAY not be her fault at all. There may be a mix-up somewhere, I don't know. Joining my network, but not talking or replying tells me ...what? I don't know either.

But, that being the case, I feel that I have to give her the benefit of doubt. She may be trying to contact me and not be getting through. Or she may not be interested. Just wish I knew.

My first contact here was from a lady who lives some distance away from me. Even though there's not much chance of us physically getting together right now (I wish there was the possibility), I still responded and talked to her (and still do).

Even if you can't actually meet or get together with someone who emails you, is there any reason you can't have another friend? Personally, I like to have friends. And I DO answer emails that come to me.

ABSOLUTLY RIGHT! I think everyone on here needs to learn manners that i know they should have been raised with. And what's up with these emails that state the obvious and say nothing else? HEllooo we know why we are here. Can't you just take the time to respond or just be nice to people? (So do you think anything will change now? lol) Glad to be a friend here. This is a really nice guy. kisses/hugs bye

You seem to be a man I'd like to get to know - friend or otherwise, k?

And by the way, I agree with you. If we take the time out of our day to send an email to someone, common courtesy should pop up and they should at least say no I'm not interested, but thank you or Hey, Hello, let's get together and chat...,
