I am working hard.. creating variety of topics... under different interests.. and not obvious ones.. or just yes or no.. or stupid things about my love.. or about being stupid.. Is it that there is no value for sensible posts? I'm not being harsh.. its just another doubt!

Hi aravindkrd, you need to make some friends who share the same interests as you, look at the people who have responded to you and see if you share the same interests, that's the key. Unfortunatly we don't appear to share the same interests but that is fine, there's lots of different interests out there. Maybe try looking at profiles for people of the same age group would be one suggestion I would offer. Hope you start to get responses soon.

Hi, friend. I am not very certain what is the cause but there may be four reasons. First may be, the topics that you think are out of the box and interesting, others may not think so, a difference in interests. But, as you said, you raised variety of discussions, it seems less likely. A more likely reason may be it is just by chance, that you have not yet got many responses. Keep raising quality discussions and you will get a response in future. Another more likely reason is that you may not have many friends in your mylot friends list. Most mylotters prioritize on responding to friends` discussions first. Try making new friends. The most likely reason, in case your discussions contain quality content, may be the materialistic nature of most mylotters. Actually, a majority of them respond to discussions that are easy to respond rather than those containing topics of real value, as they are here to just earn money. For example, i raised the discussions on -Water conservation : Got three responses only -Comparing titanic and matrix movies: Got 17 responses. So, as i love raising only meaningful discussions, i have nearly stopped raising new ones and try my best to answer good discussions first.

What is a sensible discussion to some users is stupid to others. Why would talking about your love be stpid? Surely it is an importnt issue in your life and therefore noat a stupid thing? Of course I could ask you the same thing - why are YOU not responding on mine You will find that if you respond on other users' discussions they will then search out yours and if they can relate to the topic they will definately respond.

Some of us here, if we only accept them if we only know them in person, would have no friends at all. Once we accept them THEN we can start to become friends with them. No how matter how long we live we always have enough time to try and improve I see you have received several indications here - now it's up to you! Have fun and happy Lotting!

Sometimes you get responses, sometimes you don't. It depends on what you talk about. Also depends on who sees your posts and whether they feel like talking about it at the time they saw it. May depend on other factors too. Here, you got some responses... isn't something better than nothing?

well arav, all i'll say is keep up the effort. secondly people like topics where they are more personally involved. (i'm talking about reality, not just mylot) so when you are starting a new topic. I guess you kinda have that going on already, based on some of your topics. I reply to others too, more than creating my own topic. but i'll try replying your topics from now on.

Yeah thats right.. I'm working on that point right now. People always like to express their character, their views, their attitude, their opinion.. everything personal.. Like how will you handle this.. how will you do that..! Nice idea.. should be thinking of something similar Thnx for the tip!

Coincidence, This was also one of my discussions when I still had my old account (before it was deleted), then mysdianait said the same thing. you should always be creative in making discussions and accept defeat if you have zero responses in some of your discussions. it's either the right responders aren't there at the time you create the topic or simply they missed it. don't give up. you should aslo respond to other people's discussions more often, so that some will do the favor in return.

aww I'll go to some of your discussions. Ive only put a few topics up here but I know a trick to get people to go to them too. Just hang in there. It will happen.
