Answering e-mails

Why do so few men answer e-mails?  If you are not interested why don't you just say so.  Be a gentleman and at least do the lady a common courtsey of answering.  After all the person took the time to write.  What has happened to manners??

I think sending anyone a wink in response to an email is a tease and only leaves them confused. In my opinion it is the worst thing you can do.

I almost always reply to an email although it can get time consuming. Usually it is only to acknowledge a compliment,etc.and then politely decline. MOST people appreciate a reply even though it may not be want they want to read.

If I don't answer emails (and I admit I have done that), it is because I don't want to give the person any false hope.  To write back that I'm not interested also seems rude.  It seems they can figure out I am not interested if I don't answer emails.  Anyway, welcome to the club.  I get less than 10% of my emails answered from women.



The opposite: you give the false hope if you don't answer-they keep waiting,or thinking the mail did not reach you, or you didn't see it. I at least send a wink in response:"you are great,but I don't think the chemistry is there". Getting no answers many time gives the ideas that all the profile are false and the people do not exist. Will be nice if everybody will be polite enough to answer.




Personally, getting a rejection wink or an email saying they aren't interested is worse than not hearing from them.... at least for me. 



Nonetheless, I went back and answered all my weeks until I re-started here a couple of weeks ago.  I took your advice.  Thanks.



Excuse me all, I'm new at this but I noticed this post about the winks....I've sent the winks in response just to acknowledge. I would've sent possibly a message but most of these sites ask do their sales pitch and ask for funds before you can move forward/respond. Since I'm leary and still not sure about this on line match making stuff....I haven't PAID for anything yet. I'm a bit "old fashion" in some sense but realize times have changed and I've been told "I should"...just testing the waters. Bottom line is that I feel there's never any reason for rudeness or inconsideration and if someone was nice enough to send you any type of acknowledgement/hello - than at minimum, it should be reciprocated/acknowledged. For gawds sake...just because you respond doesn't mean they're "the one"...etc...

Just my two cents....

man should say in 1st email i want to have a marriage or to play.
he says "be Real" & she wants to move-in but he runs away & wants freedom, right?

I don't like getting winks.  I think men should be direct with an e-mail; he can simply say hello, I'm interested, etc.   Just something very short at first.

WELL CG.. It  appears yo uare correct here! It is a SPLIT decision... almost right down the middle!

I stick by my convicion... I don't have to have an email to verify a man is not interested.. However, I am one to write more for a reason than to send an email out to a man I migh tbe interested in...  So I am more into seeing what the men say THEY WANT TO HEAR when THEY write a woman...

yourinspiraton commented about a wink to send about not being chemistry there? I was unaware of this wink- so I ask MEN....

DO YOU PREFER THAT WINK OR TO BE IGNORED..???  Cause that's the best I got! I am not writing someone to tell them I am not interested.

Well CG... I may once again be in my own little boat w/out a paddle here...

BUT FOR ANY MAN I MAY WRITE IN THE FUTURE.... HEAR ME AND HEAR ME NOW!!

"IF" I actually gather up the gumption to write you .. it means I may hold some interest.. (unless there is a specific reason for writing)

It quite possibly took every fiber of my being to write you.. as although I am outspoken by nature.. I am NOT this way in the ROMANCE dept..

After gathering up enough "gonads" to write you... the LAST thing I want / need is for you to write me and tell me.. "You're not my type!" Cause seriously.. is there REALLY a nice way to say this?? Or are we just fooling ourselves w/ hogwash "polite- aties?"

I'm all for sweeping it under the rug.. I'm shmarrrt enough to figure out you aren't interested.. So deal w/ me looking at your profile a couple more times... and I will move on..

I DON'T NEED TO WITNESS A ROCKFALL TO TELL ME THERE MAY BE A LANDSLIDE AROUND THE MOUNTAINS!!

Just sayn... :)
