Too cool to respond from wer27944ru's blog

If you are too cool to respond to a message someone sends you, I am happy you feel that way. Personally I am not too cool to reply to anyone. I make time to be here and replying is what I am here for. If you don't want to reply because you don't like our pictures, THANK YOU! I don't have room in my life for shallow people anyway. The absolute best response I have ever received from a woman was "I am not interested, I don't think we match." She and I are still talking! I have the ability to chat without any strings. Try it some time, some people on here are very interesting.

Nicely said. It used to be simple politeness to respond to correspondence, now it seems like just another bit of manners that's fallen by the wayside.

The way I look at it (although being fairly old fashioned in my manners I am inclined to agree) is that a different norm of etiquette has arisen out of cyber communication that is different from older forms of communication and it is perhaps a mistake for us who are older (35+) to expect the same form of manners that we were raised with under these older forms of communication. I recall (early 90s) losing a bit of respect in my friend when she dumped her (sweet) boyfriend by simply 'not being at home' when he called, she in effect ghosted him in a time when it was a little weird, now it is common. Raging against change is a useless game, whether I dislike it or not, so instead I just put it in my mind that 'No response is a no' no one owes anyone a polite response because they are not the ones who instigated a correspondence, you did. Their silence is saying 'I do not wish to communicate with you in any way' and that can be upsetting. Some people don't take that rejection well and respond in anger, throwing insults at the person that hurt them OR refuse a polite 'no thank you' and demand to know WHYYYYYYY you don't like them! These responses are emotional labour some women don't feel like risking which is understandable. I hope this gives a bit of explanation as to why you might encounter silence and perhaps instead of seeing it as an added insult, just see it as a new way of saying no thank you. xThe way I look at it (although being fairly old fashioned in my manners I am inclined to agree) is that a different norm of etiquette has arisen out of cyber communication that is different from older...See more

Being able to reply or not reply without having to own our actions tends to make people less human. People get awfully brave when they don't have to face anyone.

That assumes there is not an different but equally valid form of etiquette to replace it that WE don't 'get' but trust me, the younger generation are not lacking in humanity. And being a keyboard warrior is not age specific, some of the worst trolls I know/know of are middle-aged and should/DO know better.That assumes there is not an different but equally valid form of etiquette to replace it that WE don't 'get' but trust me, the younger generation are not lacking in humanity.
