How do you feel when you are seenzoned?

According to Urban Dictionary, seenzoned is 'when you send someone a message and it says SEEN but they dont reply.' Like ouch. Alright, granted that you are busy or you are busy, the mere fact is there is no such thing as being busy for the right person. Why don't you say that you're not interested? Then it's clear to the other person that his/her existence is irrelevant. Or if you can't/won't answer back to someone's pm, then don't read it! As much as sending an impersonal emoticon is a laborious thing to do, then please have the delicadeza of ignoring the whole text rather than opening it and leaving the other person wondering why you're not replying. Some people are just so inconsiderate. I hope you're not.

There are perhaps times when someone really IS busy, but just opens the message to see if it's an emergency. They should get back to you later, but perhaps they just forget.

Depends on what the message says. I usually do that when i get perverted messages.

@sol_cee Well, I think that viewing the unmannerly behavior on TV, in movies, and from leaders of countries kind of gives the message that manners are unnecessary most of the time.

It all depends on their cultural background and how they are brought up by their parents.They are unsocial beings. When I somebody to call back at certain time and if they do not then I will not entertain their phone calls even.

I have a friend who reads my emails pretty soon after I send them, but doesn't usually respond until later. I wondered about this, but he explained that it's pretty easy for him to read the message on his phone, but he prefers to respond when he's back home on the computer so that he can see my message while he replies. I feel the same way, plus it's much easier to type on the computer than on the phone! Maybe that's what is happening, sometimes.

I guess I am inconsiderate because I've done that quite a few times. There are "friends" who didn't come to help me when I needed it. Years later, they message me to ask why I've been so quiet. I just don't feel like dealing with them, so I do see their messages but I don't reply. There are some times in life when I'm better off away from certain people.

@sol_cee if we get bored if we communicate with a boring person, it is bad, but when he or she is as active and enthusiastic to communicate with, i guess i will be all ears listening or chatting with him or her.

Oh, you know me, Sol. Technology is my kryptonite. If I've been "seenzoned" I probably didn't notice. And if I "seenzoned" someone else (can you do that when all you own is basic internet??) then I was also oblivious. Either way. It's all over my head; in one ear and out the other.

I don't do that to people but I have it done to me often and by more than one person and yes I must admit it hurts. But I try not to focus on it and let them ruin my day. God loves me and thats all I really care about as people let you down all the time and their very unpredictable. Thanks for sharing!
