Do you ever get PM’d by people who have nothing to say?

I don’t want to discourage people, but strangers I have no connection with will be like -Hi, what are you doing? - what are you doing now? - what about now?

I find small talk on social media so very awkward.
Send back a photo of the bluewaffle

Be interesting to see what they respond with after that 😌

I just PM [i]'hi'[/i] to like 50 people and wait for the replies to come rolling in.😅

When I would still answer just any message, yes. Believe me, I'd do my damndest to be engaging and keep the conversation, but some of these individuals just were not chatty. It's like, then why the hell did you message me and are still doing so?!

As a bit of a social gardener, I've generally known what weeds to pull, and what plants to cultivate.

That’s how I respond to most texts. The harder they are to talk to the more plain my replies are to them.

Lol....not really these days, but in the past, yes.
The ones that bothered me most were the ones who say stuff like.. ' hi, i really like yr post, i thinknyou are very interesting and ud like to talk to you' so id reply asking which post and they'd say, ' i can talk about anything....what do you want to know? Ask me anything!! ' messaged me? I dont have anything to ask you......🙄🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Sometimes it's just "Hi", and that's it LOL

A good PM stopper usually is to ask them about themselves. They really don't want to say anything about themselves. They want you to talk about yourself. That's how catfish get info about you.

Yes, it was a catfish.

There's nothing worse than 1, 2 or 3 word "discussion" Or when it's all one sided and nothing is coming back the other way.
I get some very interesting messages that i just won't answer. All i know is that some people should use the toilet 🤦🏼‍♀️

I'm not good at small talk and the group mergers are causing confusion because some are now the opposite of what I originally joined. :(

Poor souls just trying to start a conversation. Can be an effort when the likelihood is she will ignore you
gdon39 · 41-45, M
I certainly have. Some people are just awkward. I wish they would message other people. Lol
Carissimi · 61-69, F
I’m the one with nothing to say, and I don’t message anyone, except on rare occasions.

Perhaps when I had my photo on here. That doesnt really happen now.
HeidiA · 41-45, F
@PaleandPolluted Curious. Might try that
caPnAhab · 26-30, M
I used to get a lot of those when I was new here

So, what do you think was the real cause of WWI?
calicuz · 51-55, M
I'll bet they're all men too
GeorgeTBH · 31-35, M
nope i only pm a few people
Jimmy2016 · 61-69, M
Folks who have never spoken to me ever and pm with "hi".
Chickie · F
This! This is why I don't respond to messages with only the word "hi" the conversation is awkward and weird. Then they'll ask "what do you want to talk about?" I dunno you messaged me!
