I don't disagree with the basic premise of consideration. I've made statements to that effect in several places.
I do take issue with those that try to force others to respond in a way that they want others to and get peeved when those others do not. One should be responsible for oneself, and not try to force others into their mold of expectations.
At any rate, I am getting my needs met, and I suggest anyone that is not ... and I quote myself "would be best served to drop their senses of entitlement, see their therapists/psychologists, take a class on Coursera on Communication, in others words work on themselves and come into interaction with their best attire on". Annnddd back to the pursuit of cuddling ....
. Snuggle, you talk way too much sense for some. Always a pleasure to read your posts.
Because they are lining up to get to you @SnuggleCub! People recognize and respond to good energy, as they avoid not so good energy.
I have a question.If you walked up to me, face to face, and asked me a question, and instead ofanswering I just walked away, what would you think? I'll bet onethought would be - man is that guy rude. How is not answering arequest any different. It has nothing to do with ego, power,chauvinism or entitlement it has all to do about beingpolite. My parents taught me to be polite and respectful of others.Maybe that is out of style now. I'm 64 years old and I am probablyconsidered a dinosaur. Men just like women have feelings too, even usold guys. A simple Thanks but no thanks would suffice. At least acknowledge the person exists.I sell things on eBay and Craigslist and Iexperience the same kind of behavior. It appears to happen more withthe younger generation. I'll answer and there typically won't be a"Thank you", just nothing. What has happened to whatwe used to call "common courtesy"?I think it ispretty ironic especially when the woman has in her profile howimportant she thinks kindness is, or how caring a person she is. Iexpected this site to have members that actually did care and wouldbe more understanding. I am sadly disappointed.
