Waiting for a response...

What do you do while you're waiting for someone to contact you? Do you ever get impatient waiting for a phone call, letter, or e-mail? I've been waiting for an e-mail since yesterday, and I'm getting rather impatient.

I'm a very impatient person, and get really frustrated if I don't hear back from people as quickly as I'd like. I forever seem to be waiting for people to confirm dates to me by email, and it's really tempting to just keep checking ... and checking ... and checking. It doesn't do any good though!

I'm always impatient lol. My cousin and I used to write each other back and forth a lot and it would drive me crazy waiting for her letters to come. I'm also going crazy waiting for an email from an old friend. I emailed her with pictures of my kids and asking for her help with getting a daycare started possibly, but she hasn't emailed me back yet. I just try to get myself away from the computer, otherwise I am checking my email every half hour lol.

I like to do other works and forget it for a little moment.

I'm impatient on some things but not on others. If it was something important, I'd really want to know sooner rather then later, but what's important to some might not be to others. Such as money, if your contacting a seller they might not get back to you soon if they have your money already, lol.

waiting is one of the hardest things in the world but i guess i have learnt to distract myself during this. i think worrying over getting a response from someone is not worthed... because i think when you are doing that, it leads you to have negative thoughts about the person. i just busy myself in other work or if i really really want to talk to someone, i take call them up myself rather than wait for them to do the same.

If you send a e mail. you must wait, who want to answer will answer, if don t want answer is not good to push him. You will be affected if try again to send other e mail and you don t receive the answer again. Depend what kind of e mail you wait. If is from a friend, you can try again, if is from your lover..you must just wait.

There is nothing wrong in waiting for a reply..Of course all the people doesn't reply at once they read your mail, they often take time to reply back. so patience is very important in this regard. If not you are getting reply for a long time its absolutely fine to remind the person that you are waiting for their reply..a polite approach will do the job..

Why wait if you can do the first move? It's not being rude, arrogant nor being too aggressive. It's just that if you value time, then you would've not wasting it. Right?
