I Respond to My Friends Discussions, But they Don't Respond To Mine!

I have made it a habit to respond to my friends discussions every morning. I have tried to be faithful in doing so, but I rarely see my friends answering mine! I thought this was a good way for both parties to earn some extra money, but now I am wondering! Do you have the same concern?

I try to go on each day and see if my friends have started any discussions too. I will try to respond to them. Some of my friends do the same for me but not all of them. I really appreciate the one's that do take the time to answer mine.

Dotn worry if they wont answer them others will. I am fairly new and I have started discussions that i never expected anyone to respond to and they did. I also check out the new people and respond to their discussions a lot. Last night I did not do any posting becos I felt drained. I kept meeting onthe smae topics and what i hve noticed is that when you respond to a discussion the moderators hardly if they ever do, respond to the posting, As said before this is all life and just take it in stride.

Hello, kitty. Here comee williamjisir responding to your new discussion. Don't be upset, dear kitty. I think that it very normal not to have responses from all of our friends because every day we recieve whole bunch of emails informing us of new discussions from our friends. Thus the latest dicussions could be very lucky to be responded to as they are on the latest page of our emails. I can understand that and hope that you can understand it as well. I have to say that up till now I have 743 emails from mylot and I don't think that I can digest them all in a short time. I can only respond to the responses when it is my day off spending hours and hours doing the responding job. I hope that you will still be happy posting new discussions.

Sometimes people create topics that people do not know anything about or are not interested in so I would not feel too bad. I do not let that worry me and just go on responding to whoevers topics interest me. I try and respond to my friends topics as much as possible, even if they do not respond to mine.

hi there, kitty1234! i must say i am 'guilty' as charged. try as i may to be faithful to respond to my friends' discussions everyday, my schedule lately has been so taxing i haven't spent much time on myLot. the last time i logged in, i tried to resolve my 'unresolved' discussions but fell asleep along the way... i share the same concern as yours and i'll try from this day forward to prioritize responding to your and all my other friends' discussions before posting new discussions. happy posting and see you around... :)

I respond to my friends discussions too. But there's also time that i not respond to them. If i don't have much comment or no comment on the topic they talk about, i will just skip it. I don't like it when there's nobody reply my discussions. It's sad when my discussions still 0 response for few days. Wish you have a nice day! ^.^

I have the same problem. I only have a few friends that I can count on to answer all my posts, even though I almost always respond to their discussions. It bothers me sometimes because I faithfully respond to friends before I do anything else on MyLot, but what can you do? I'll just keep on doing what I'm doing.:)

Its happening to me too. But to some friends. I think they are not login at mylot anymore, or just posting only a discussion and then logout. May be they been stall by busy at their own word, or so,... But some still thinking of me and we keep in touch by responding each other.

Please don't mind it. Perhaps they are busy or they are unable to find something to say about your discussion.

I do noticed that some of my friends don't respond to my discussions as well. Because if they all do, I think I can easily make few more cents a day than I'm doing now. However, I don't let it affect me. I continue posting quality discussions and respond to one. I try to give them the benefit of the doubt; maybe their just busy, or they don't find my discussions interesting, so I let them. However, I do remove some very inactive friends in my list if I think they only add clutter to my list instead.

You have to take it slow, kitty1234, because you don't know if they're still active here or not. Or maybe the discussions you start just don't fall to their very interest, just be patient and try adding more friends in your list. That way, many members can view the discussions you have started. Just don't expect too much from your friends, nor rely on them responding to you. I suggest that you keep on participating here, change your way of posting for a while and maybe respond more than create your own topics!;)

Hello Kitty1234! When I newly joined mylot, I also used to respond to my friends discussions and most of them didn't used to respond to my discussions. I didn't much care about it because then I had to concentrate on studies, so left the site for few months. Now as am back, I don't respond to my friends discussions. Instead, I respond to discussions of the mylotter who respond to my discussions and add them as my friend if they aren't in my friend list. I try to respond to the discussions of all the mylotters who responded to my discussions like for example, am responding to your discussion after getting a response from you to one of my discussions. vani^_^

Hi kitty, before yes, but now I don’t have this concern anymore. We know everyone has his own group of friends. It depends whether they have the same interests or favorites. It also might be due to some of our discussions couldn’t arouse their interests so it’s quite normal that friends do not respond to our discussions. Anyhow the best way is to keep on posting. As times go by definitely you would come across some good friends who will always respond your discussions.

I just got to a computer yesterday, so I have not seen this message until today. It depends on how much time I get and whether I can respond to the discussions in more than two or three short sentences. I will go through you posts, and see if I can answer or respond to in at least a few of them. Mind you, there are some discussions that I am not an expert on or cannot answer well and that could be the problem. For instance, if someone asked me how do I like, "favorite sports hero,' I could not answer that because I am not a sports fan. Oh I do know about golf because my sons are golf fans, but that is as far as it goes. So it could be that your friends did not know about a subject you introduced or they felt they could not respond to it intelligently enough and no one wants to look like a fool. It is also the time restraint. So do not worry, you will get responses.

In my friends list friends are classified in two groups, close friends and others with the others, I participate in their discussions if the topic is kind of interesting to me but with my close circle I feel I am obliged and I must participate and that what distinguish them from others. I always try to see my close myLot friends posts and respond as soon as I can and honestly, I expect the same back, even if you did not have anything 2 say I feel a friend must try to show up and say something. I fully understand your point .... Thank you ...

I know how you feel every day I make an efford to answer some of my friends discussion as there is hardly any topic that I cant think of writing few words to help a friend and jet no one does mine sometime write a new discusion just to air my frustration so I dont care much if 100 people answer or just 1 but sometime I need an advice or support and no one writes expecially none of my friends.
