TOPIC: What is with people who IM you but then don't say anything
Created by: ugot22001
Original Starting post for this thread:
Anyone else run into this? Person IMs you - you accept - dialogue as follows:

Them: hi You: hello there <long pause> Them: whats up You: not much (or whatever) <long pause> etc.

What is the point of this? If I am going to IM someone, I will have something to say/ask, make conversation. I just don't get why they IM in the first place.

Yep, and it's usually either a single guy or elderly couple (at least more "elderly" than us;) from across the country. The trouble is that it takes about twenty "decline" clicks to get rid of the IM. This website would have been great in 1996...

At least with an email, you can politely respond with a "no".

@VAbeach - We've gotten IM's from totally random guys from "wherever the h*ll" who just wanna chat and look at my (pix) and talk about when they were stationed on Oahu when they were in the military! Lame.

That shit drives me bonkers. If you made contact with me, it's up to YOU to drive the conversation at the beginning.

Especially if you're from the other side of the country. If you're from fucking Arizona, don't IM me just to shit talk.

And don't lie and say you're from here originally and come back. It's easy to tell when people don't know jack.

"I'm from Chesapeake. I was back to visit my mother 2 weeks ago."

"Oh yeah? Did you do a lot of skiing at the hills here?"

"Yeah sometimes."

LOL, nope, never had that problem. 99% of the time we'll IM someone and either A) be ignored and timeout, or B) be refused. Never had anyone IM us and have nothing to say, though.

I think sometimes they're just IM'ing everyone they can find, and only take the time to study your profile after you've replied to them.

Such people may also be not very good at typing.

Mostly all we ever got with IM's. Big waste of time, so we shut IM OFF. Email only for us. People seem to put a bit more in emails. But now not much contact. hmmmmm.

we enjoy recieving ims, but we agree if you IM someone have something to say , dont expect the other person to carry the conversation. We just close the IM when that happens

That's just a person with multiple conversations going. Not just single males. Couples have done this with us, too. I just hang up on them.

This is why we have right at the beginning of our profile that we don't accept IM's from single males unless we tell them in an e-mail that it's okay to IM us. Although its not just the single guys that are guilty but they are the majority.
