Ever get the feeling someone's avoiding you here?

If I don't message first they seem to come online and disappear.
And the longer I leave not messaging or communicating with them on any posts the more I feel they're happy to come and go, almost like moving in the shadows.

If I leave them, can I rightly say I'm being ghosted?

....like I care. If I worried about everyone who is avoiding me, ghosting or doesn’t like, I don’t know where i would be right now. Stop caring. Thats it. LIKE. they. DID

I'm sorry you feel that way, I'm in my office doing paperwork & talking to clients.

If you would have made your interest more noticeable to me, I would have given you my attention.

[@1203332,AussieWhisperer] aww thank you, that's very kind. I didn't want to say as I didn't want to appear like a desperate paranoid weirdo

Sometimes I go offline to show that I don’t really have time to talk but I would always try to say that first in a message (sometimes it’s not possible and I feel bad.)

[@1162798,Strongtea] I get you. But I can't tell if it's a feeling of inadequacy. Not really liking me or my paranoia

I wouldn’t worry too much, sometimes I feel like I want to talk but have nothing interesting to say so I may not message back, but I really want to, could just be something like that[@1196310,Mellowgirl]
I’ve felt this before (not necessarily on here). I’ve found that these kinds of feelings surface when you are someone who is genuinely seeking connection and are communicating with someone who is very detached and nonchalant about things. So the air can get pretty awkward and confusing. That’s why it’s good to discern who is up for genuine connection and not pay much attention to those who aren’t.

It doesn't have to do with you, per se. Maybe they decided to work out twice a day and thus to not spend a lot of time on SW or sth

It is the beginning of summer. Everyone is busy, busy, busy planning and doing.

We see this in a business communication and sales drop off as well.

No worries....

[@31253,Threepio] maybe for business communities... But it's strange otherwise. I'm sure friends make room for each other
