As they say women are from venus men are from mars.
This is reflected in the way we communicate. Men tend to be more direct and the way they write will indicate whether or not a response is indicated, whereas a woman tends to be more circumspect, and while a response would be expected, the communication may not indicate that this is so.
OK other foot in mouth.
Maybe instead of saying how nice the weather is. pose it as a question, what do you think of the weather. This puts the onus on the receiver to respond.but then again the receiver may well be shallow checks the profile and ignores the communication.
since I now may have both feet in mouth I'll stop while I'm behind.
OK MMSH, Gutenberg, Primeboy, etc. etc. help me out here.
