"Friends" Taking Too Long To Reply
I am in a crisis. I know that some people have work to do, and some have important things to do, but I've met over ten people from different parts of the web, and they all take just too long to reply to one single message. And they are all of different ages. I don't know what's going on!

I think I'm a fairly interesting person, I talk about controversial topics with them, I listen to their interests and give them my opinions, I tell them what I've learned from the books I've read, and I have a whole two years of stories to tell ever since I've wanted to be a game developer. I also take interest in some of their interests.

I'm just lost here. I don't know what to do.

By the way, by long, I mean in terms of weeks and months.

How long are you deeming too long? Remember you are talking to people from around the world. If you aren't giving at least a couple of days, you're going to be disappointed.

By long, I mean weeks and sometimes a month or more.

And what kind of thing are you requesting exactly? It might not have a simple answer.

I'm expecting them to come up with opinions, take interest in what I'm doing too, share thoughts.

Re: "Friends" Taking Too Long To Reply
Do they share interest in the subject you are asking about?

Well, I'm sure of it, they certainly say my topics are quite interesting and great, and that they would have never though about it that way, but then, they say they will give further opinions later on, and many more messages, and... They just never reply. And so the cycle continues.

Maybe they have the best of intentions, but are in fact too lazy/busy/etc to follow through, and then they forget about it.

This can be tricky, at least for me, because I hate sending people a second messages if they never responded to the first one... I mean, I don't want to seem pushy or something, but at the same time, I do need a response.

Sometimes people do simply forget though and you just need to send them a little reminder. If it was actually important at least.
