    Hello all, Having recently joined the world of online dating..I have come to suspect that there is a set of unwritten rules that I am totally unfamiliar with? You may email a few times, and then that person seems to drop totally off the face of this earth! I'm clueless!

    Hi! They're usually corresponding with more than one woman until they decide to focus on just one. They won't tell you they've met someone for the fact that they don't want to burn any bridges in case it doesn't work out with the other one. In some it's a case of simply being rude. They assume that you'll figure it out since they've stopped writing to you.

    I don't want to be a back-up or treated rudely, so when men do it to me, I say a quiet prayer of thanks for them doing me a big favor early on.
