I Hate It When Someone Messages Me And Say Hey Or Hi

for people who get annoyed with one word messages 599 People

    I'm guilty of this, I'm not really sure what I

    should say. Maybe I should ask a weird question? "What's on your mind right now?" Sounds okay I guess

    I really do hate that.

    I delete most people when they inbox me and they say hi or hey! I don't block people who say that I just delete the message because blocking someone for no reason is evil and I am a nice person. saying hi, hello, or hey doesn't give me enough to go on. It doesn't let me know...

    If you message me and only say something like

    "Hi" or "Hey", I will just delete your message without responding to it.

    Four guys out of nowhere,

    at different times, messaged me saying hi. And we talk for awhile, then they ask for pictures, and say they like me and need me, and pant leave me alone, until I finally have to block them. Happen to anyone else? I think that's why I don't trust guys..

    I just do it to start off the conversation.

    The interesting things come later if you're interesting. I don't see what's peoples problem with starting off the convo like this is to be honest. I'd rather just say hey or hi and not say what I want to say right off the bat, kind of invasive or pushy if you ask me. If you're...

    honestly, no I don't.

    I would love it. Fact is, I very rarely even get a "hi". I am happy the times I get a simple "hi" and I try to create a conversation myself with the person because I appreciate the fact the person took their time to send me a message. If they initiate, I'll live up to my end of...

    You obviously want to talk to me

    because we have something in common to share, don't bore me with an opening of just "hi", "hey" " how are you" BORING!!!!!! Make the opening interesting and we'll talk.

    When you send me a message saying,

    "Hi" or "Hey" or "Wassup" or anything just as thoughtless with less than 30-40 characters, it tells me quite a bit about you. 1) You didn't read my profile. 2) You don't care about me as a person, and you don't care about my experiences or stories. 3) You have nothing...

    Because you're too damned lazy to make the effort to actually make conversation. Why should I bother to make the effort to reply to you? From previous experiences, I'm the one who's end up carrying the conversation anyway, so why bother? Even now, during the last few days on...

    sense to introduce yourself? Let them know something about you. I'll be looking at your profile directly anyway, but still. It would also be nice if you gave some kind of hint of what you are wanting to talk about. At least that way I would know from the start if you just want...

    especially if we are not friends.

    if you just message me hi or hey i'm most likely not going to message you back. like come on come up with something more original would ya. it's even worse if people just keep sending hi or hey all the time like shut up i don't care.

    It's such an emotional turn off.

    It's bereft of personality, and I'm here to talk with people, not robots. I know some people are just shy and need to warm up, and I give most a chance to see if they can carry a conversation, but I can't help but feel initially disinterested.

    Next time I get one I'm going

    for no reply. Not only is it boring and doesn't grab my attention but 99% of the time the convo ends up being dull. That's what I get, if it starts out boring there's already little promise of it getting better. First impressions, ya know?

    You just say Hi or hello

    and I am deleting the message. If you want to get to know me let me know why you are messaging me - like my nic, profile pic, experiences, story? Make a connection with a little effort... or don't bother!

    It annoys me when someone just says "hey"

    or "hi." Like can you at least give some reason for why you are messaging me? Whatever it is I like to have some reason. Even if it's just as simple as "hey I'm bored wanna talk?" But seems like all the people who message me just say "hi" and nothing else. I find it weird.

    Why can't people start out with an intro
