Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

Thank you!

If you don't get a response within a day or two of your e-mail being opened, you're not getting one.

Depends on how often you check your emails.

I saw when you get the email if you have time do it than. When ever I get an email I try to answer it than.

If say it is one you read at work or something or have to think about what you write. I would make sure you write back the next day as the person that wrote the email is saying what the hell why haven't you wrote back.

I respond within a day. I may read an email but wish to put some thought into a response. If I happen to be online when I receive an email, even if I have time, I do not reply immediately, so as to not look like I was desperate and sitting here waiting...

ok, i'm a geek. i like getting emails and HAVE to open them, because I'm just too curious (didn't curiosity have something to do with a cat??).
if i don't know the person, then i check the profile and judge from there.
if it's a chatty one, i'll respond quickly, within the hour most times, but if it's a little more serious than that, i will think on it a little more, sometimes a day or two if it isn't an emergency.
i also consider who it is from. seeing as how a lot of the people (but not all) who i correspond with are in the friend category, i also consider how often and quickly they respond, and respond accordingly.
if it's that special someone, then i usually respond by the end of the night, after a bit of thought. i hate to rush my words too much, or seem too clingy or needy.

but after all that, i like writing them and sometimes go overboard and don't wait for a response if i have more to say (i always seem to have more to say...) trying desperately not to be a pain in the a$$! lol

I realize that not everyone has a great deal of time to respond to messages so, as a general rule, I always give a great ordeal of time to first Read a message. After that, I will allow about 2-3 weeks to respond and, if after that I still don't get a response, I will simply delete the message as I can see that they are not too interested in either myself or wanting to date.

I do find it interesting that if we were paying for this site, everyone would get back to messages sent much sooner and would not stop with the “I'm thinking about my response”. But it is what it is and, we need to adjust to that.
