I know what you mean--I like to think I send it out into the universe & see what happens & then forget about it.  I do like the OLD sites where you can look up if you contacted a person, though, because sometimes I wonder--did I contact him before or was I just thinking about it?

If I emailed a guy and he is not interested I rather not receive a rejection email too.
Sometimes I have forgotten that I sent out the email.

Tell me the price. I am going to buy it :smileyhappy:
Ocean front? why not.

I used to live on an island and our house was ocean front property. It is not as glamorous as you think.
It is always windy with sand blowing into your face and the waves makes lots of noise. We couldn't grow veggies except for the coconut trees. When there is a tropical storm warning, we get scared. There is a tropical storm almost every year.

off topic.

The guys camp always say, reply to let him know since he took the time and effort to write to you first.

The women say otherwise. I learnt my lesson.

I don't respond either.  It amazes me what people think they can say when their true identity is hidden.  I find the block feature very convenient.

OH yeah, he wrote to you first but he managed to not be able to see your picture that was right there all the time?  That's a good one.  I usually don't say anything either but I'd get sucked in if I felt someone took some effort and seemed very nice, but then these kind of things happen & I think it's best to say nothing.  The thing is that on the receiving end, sometimes I think it's better never to hear from the guy.  If I write first and just don't hear anything, then I just tell myself "Oh well that didn't work out" but if I get an email I start getting excited, then if they write something and then go along & say it's not a match, somehow it's even more disappointing.  I remember getting rather a long email from someone who turned me down at the end by saying he had met someone, only wanted to date one woman at a time, blah, blah--of course then I keep seeing the guy on the site.  At first I thought maybe he had just signed on to email the woman he was dating but after a while, then I figured by then she would have given him her phone number--so then I assumed he was just lying to make me feel better--but it actually didn't.

A guy friend insisted that I should at least respond since he took the time to write to me first.

I don't respond anymore but this guy was so nice and polite so I thought at least let him know that I am not interested. wasn't expecting the nasty response.

Miss lynn, you are singing my song.  Been there, done that, bought the tee-shirt. Every time I do an ad, I get at *least* one nastygram.  Got one last week. 

Sorry!  But don't take it personally.  Because it is not.
