I’ve found a common dynamic when it comes to dating and friendship is I’ll invite a friend or a romantic interest to spend some time together, and I’ll either get no response from them at all, or I’ll get a some kind of ‘I can’t this week, but maybe next week? While these two responses are distinctly different, what they have in common is that being on the receiving end it can be unclear what the response means, In this post, while I use online dating as an initial vehicle for discussing the dynamics of no-reply and I’m-busy responses.The more important dynamic I’m really interested in, is these responses from people who you know a bit better.

Recently I saw this image posted on my Facebook and it got me thinking about my own experiences with not receiving replies to text or Facebook messages.DEAR MISS MANNERS: I am a male member of a popular dating website.When I read the profile of someone I’d like to meet, I write them a personalized letter pointing out some of our common interests, adding a bit of levity where I can, suggesting we meet for coffee and conversation. Since we are both members of this group seeking the same goal — companionship — doesn’t social etiquette require some acknowledgment of receipt and a response?Jane Austen would be aghast at the behavior of her gender in the 21st century! Could you be confusing her with Lady Catherine de Bourgh, who allows no room for context when she issues directives?The Miss Austen that Miss Manners knows is uncannily alert to the subtleties in any social situation.
