Just a rant

I hate auto reply. Why bother, unless you really have some specific detail you want to drive home? There's no point to saying I will reply soon. Either you will or you won't. This like people who say, "Can I ask a question?" You just did, but it had no point.

Or, "Let me be honest." So you weren't being honest before? Stop wasting air and space, shut it off! Thank you

I do use auto-reply because I find men don't read my profile carefully enough.

It says in my profile that I have genital herpes, and then my auto reply also directs them to read what I've written in my blog about preventing the transmission.

And, still I've gone to meet a man who said, "No, I didn't see that."

Aagh! What a damn waste of time. So, how about a rant about not reading auto replies!?!


Oh, and thanks for visiting my blog!

I understand your reasoning, and as I said, if you have a specific detail you want to drive home, auto reply is good. I just don't see the point of a generic one. Some people, like you, have a message...

OK I am guilty. I use the Autoreplies. I usually use them for people who are way too far, people who are attached or married, age difference is too great etc... BUT let me explain why I do use them.

I used to answer all emails personally but I quickly found out that even if I sent a very nice "no thank you" to a specific offer and good luck on your search, the person would continue to write to me. I might get 3-4 emails from someone who lives in Turkey, obviously there would be no chance of meeting, but they continue to write to tell me if I ever changed my mind to contact them. If I ignore the second email, they continue to write.

So I think using the Autoreplies has cut down on the emails. Maybe I am wrong, but men have to understand, we women get SO MUCH email that sometimes it is impossible to answer them all anyway.

FOR EXAMPLE: Scenario #1 might get an email from a guy who is 18 years old. He is way too young for me and I write and tell him that. He writes back that age is just a number and he is very mature for his age. I write him back and tell him that I am not comfortable with someone so young because I am old enough to be his mother. He write back again and tells me about his last girlfriend was 45 and he loves older woman. I email him back again and tell him that he is really too young for me. He writes again and says that he could make me so happy. While all these messages back and forth are going on, he is also sending me winks everyday and network invites that I have to keep deleting and declining.

Scenario #2: I get an 18 year old emailing me. I send the Auto message that I am looking for someone older, then I block them and block their invites as well. I never hear from them again.

So let me ask you... why scenario would you prefer??? I think you would do the same if you were me.

My advice to men.... If you know that you are COMPLETELY not right for someone, just send one email and/or one wink. Stop resending them on a daily basis. If the woman is somewhat considering you, you just blew it because you were being so annoying.

Ok, good point

And I now understand just how much email women get, something I didn't grasp before. I'm not hurt or annoyed when a woman doesn't reply, I'm pleasantly surprised when she takes the time to
