Unfortunately, this problem affects almost everyone! - you are not alone!
We have asked people time and again to make sure that they reply to all their messages. There are various reasons why they don't:
Some members receive a lot of messages and find it difficult to respond to everyone.
Others may be involved in a particular correspondence with another member.
Some may have signed up then not visited the site again, even if they've been alerted that they have a new message.
Some may have to subscribe in order to respond to their messages.
Sometimes people feel uncomfortable saying 'no thanks'.
Make sure your messages are as best as they can be by reading our Mailbox tips, and if you haven't already done so, don't forget to upload a profile photo!
