I had gotten a note a unit of time ago asking if I thought the asker was annoying.
Which was a statement I was pretty taken-back by, especially since the asker was someone I considered pretty close to me on the spectrum of internet buddies. :c
It got me thinking, do all of my watchers, or any/all people just interacting with me on dA, see me like this?
Am I cold?
What would make me seem cold?
Yes, maybe I don't always respond to comments, or sometimes take an eternity responding to them. I'm sorry if you feel ignored if/when I do that. I don't exactly put 100% into conversations a lot of the time. With simple praises like "nice picture" or "looks cute" and similar stuff, I don't have a lot to say back except "thanks" and I know that it only takes 3 seconds to type and send a thank you, but I feel like it's implied. Don't get me wrong, I'm always grateful for your guys' interest, god knows I don't deserve it, but, I don't know, if I don't have a lot to say, I tend to keep my mouth shut. Unless I'm SUPER CLOSE TO YOU (sorry for the dozen or so rambles, to those who know). Also, sometimes when I read over a longer comment, I want to put a lot of thought into the response, and might put it off for LITERALLY MONTHS and then proceed to feel too ashamed to reply. I know, I know.
I mean, this is not a social media website (at least to me. LOOKING AT YOU, SELFIES IN THE PHOTOGRAPHY SECTION). So I usually try to keep my best, semi-professional attitude out there. But I still always try to be welcoming, even if I'm completely and totally an ass sometimes.
Anyways, I juts hope that this clears some things up and know that if I don't respond to you or give a simple thanks, the comment still does mean a lot to me.
