People online pretty much refuse to talk to me.
Posted 10/24/15 , edited 10/24/15
I have a problem where people just don't respond to anything I say. On Crunchyroll I send messages, no one responds even though it says their online. I've sent messages to multiple people. On PS4 I will see my friend playing a game or something and I'll invite them to a party or send a message, and no reply ever. I don't see why people don't respond, it's not like I'm mean or anything, just trying to make small talk. Can anyone offer advice or something?

Maybe they didnt notice your message, or CR was glitched and said they were online when they werent or they were doing something else (like they were watching anime instead of checking their messages)

People online suck. They're shy, they're apathetic, and you know what? Screw them. PV is here, and he'll message you!

Maybe the people who you message aren't ones for small talk? I know there's some people who don't like replying to messages like, "Hey, what's up?" or "How are you?"

Online is where most people go to be "alone-together."


I'll say it is very difficult to make true friends online. I am certain many will say a lot of their best friends are those they met online, or others that say it is so easy, but whatever. Even my best-online-friend is someone I saw at an anime convention and I told my best friend after the convention they were cute and my friend exchanged our contact details [friend of a friend, but the person was too shy to talk to me].

My only advice is to take it slow. Perhaps - Hello ^_^, how are you? Oh, I see your favorite anime is -------, would you recommend it and why?!

Only do something like that if you're genuinely interested in whatever your asking about. The main thing that is off-putting with online interactions is that people can't tell if you're being sincere. If you flood them with shallow messages [and later, shallow replies] they may not take interest. Also -- if you ask too much at once you come off as desperate. Not saying that's what you do, but yeah.


Best of luck <3

Don't think too much about it. There are people out there, myself included, who sometimes just don't want to talk. Maybe they come online to get away from social interactions. Doesn't mean they dislike you or anything, probably. So don't worry.

I am like super shy online and for some reason, I don't have the issue when offline. I don't mind talking about randomness to kill passing of time. For some reason I've begun to only activate myself in crunchyroll forums this week or so, if people want to talk about anime/fiction/etc. I'm all game. xD

Don't think much of it. Sometimes they just don't feel like talking. Sometimes theres just not much to talk about. Most of the time they'll come back. happens a lot.

Sometimes people don't notice their messages or they're just shy. That's all I can think of.

I have a question kind of related to this, but if your inactive for a couple of hours but cr is still up on your computer does it show your offline or online because I'll leave myself logged on but won't be on my computer maybe that's whats happening with you when your messaging people.

I've wondered this as well. Although I close my laptop I'm still logged in and the website is still up, but I don't know if it shows me as being online
