Replying to emails...

This question goes out to everyone.....

Does it bother you, or offend you when you get no response from someone you've contacted?

Would you rather get no response, or a response saying they aren't interested?

Not bragging...but I've gotten alot of emails and sometimes I not sure how to reply, so someimtes I just don't. Maybe I am uncomfortable with telling someone I'm not interested.

My female friends on AdultFriendFinder tell me they receive a lot of email. One told me she'll send a simple no thanks to those that are polite and ignore the crude, rude and unacceptable ones.

i just send a little "sorry not intesrested but thanks". it's not mean but it tells them that you don't want to talk to them.

Rude, crude, unacceptable (if they don't read my profile) and one-liners get deleted everytime. If they are polite but I'm not interested, I will write them back and let them know.

I don't mind not getting a response from someone I've written to making an initial contact. HOWEVER, it really ticks me off when I take the time to answer someone who has written to me, and then I never hear from them again. UGH!

Personally I prefer a "no thanks". It feels much better than no reply at all cause I'm sure that you've received the message. If you don't feel well with saying no, try an auto message.

Have fun,

It just depends... if I emailed you and you didn't respond I would be upset... if someone else emails you and you don't respond well that's not that big of a deal... just joking

I guess what really matters is... how much time do you have, whether you really feel like responding to someone that you might not even know... and whether the email even deserves a reply.

Of course whatever you do I am sure it will be the right thing.

I'll make a note of that SigEp4U....and be sure to reply if you ever email me!!!

I replied to someone last night, and he was shocked that I did reply, and thanked me for being polite...that most women don't bother to reply.

Thanks everyone, for your insight.

When someone does not bother replying I will admit to feeling a bit dejected. But that is because I rarely write to women. So the failure to reply is "personal". However, I appreciate that my mail will only be one of 100s. If I received that volume I am sure I would not reply to them all.

Attractive women will get tons of emails. If the guy is a total asshole, just ignore him. If the guy is cool and friendly but not your type, then send him a reply. Your doing it the right way.

Showing concern for another persons feelings tells me that your a decent person. No need to be uncomforable. Your just being honest.

I appreciated that because I have to deal with so many people that are totally rude assholes everyday.

I agree with radlam about replying to emails.
If I take the time to send a thoughtful and directed email to a lady then I would surely appreciate at least a "no thankyou" in response.
I do understand that ladies are deluged with emails and such. While men get very few in comparison. But I think it is up to ladies to decide which contacts are deserving of a response of some kind and which are worthy of the trash.

A "No thanks" is definitely better than nothing at all. Now that they have the Qiuck Response feature you don't even have to type anything, just click the appropriate response and its off to the next email.

I recently had a situation like that where she emailed me first (from someone elses account no less) and I replied, she sent one reply to that and then after my second reply I have heard nothing. I have no idea what I said or did wrong and would love clariffication. I sent a follow-up email asking what was up and have not gotten a reply ever. If you ladies show a little interest at least tell us why you suddenly quit. Thanks.
