so i have been crawling through the crunchy forums for a while commenting here and there especially on posts of people looking for others to chat or play games with etc but whenever i have messaged someone they have been cold and rather dickish, i just don't understand why people post looking for friends if they aren't going to be friendly to people who reply.

your thoughts peeps?

So you think people on CR are dicks? Is this your first time in GD because my reaction to that will depend on your answer.

I think your expectations are a bit high.

Unreasonable expectations. We may all be on CR, but we are strangers, with many of us even being working adults. The primary reason many of us are here is not to be buddy-buddy and make merry, but is, instead, to make use of CR's functions as a business. CR is just like offline life; a mixed bag of personalities, and with no obligation to be as friendly as you prefer.

People are rude? Unfortunately, not even CR is safe from pessimists. You learn to live with it or to move on.

I've discovered very few rude people but it might just be that you haven't reached out to the right people yet. I've met some great friends on here, it just took a bit for them to come to me or for me to find them. Keep searching and you'll find some great people!!

I don't know what sites and forums you go to, but there's dicks everywhere.

In conclusion:Welcome to the internet.

There are some Creepers on CR.
I had a guy ask me to sext him and then there was this one other guy pretending to care about my problems (depression) then he started asking me about my sex life.
Extremely inappropriate and a reason why I avoid communicating in general on this site.

If only you could block people on here. He will probably see this comment and he's lucky I'm not outing him right here and now.

You can block people from sending PMs to you. Just go to your account settings and inbox preferences.
Now if it works, I have no idea haha.

Because being a dick isn't against the rules, but calling someone a dick is.

So if you're a reasonable person who sees someone being a dick and says "hey, stop being a dick" - you are the one who gets reported and warned and banned. Not the guy being a dick. Which gradually reduces the number of people who will call out the dicks, while allowing the dicks to slowly accumulate until eventually that's the entire community.

Iunno, you have a dick and they are looking for forum waifus? Or they are females who think everyone personally messaging them labeled with an "M" is a pervert despite the forum post indicating they are searching for friends?

What is your typical message like? I would say be nice and friendly, ask how they are doing, but avoid personal questions, while chatting on a topic. Reveal some things about yourself so they can get a feel of you, often regarding a commonality of life that you may both suffer through, but make sure not to dwell on it to the point of complaining.

Essentially, make it friendly, but not too personal.

Do not message them out of nowhere though, but cite your reason, ask if they want to be friended, etc.
