I agree with Rikki. Ginge, I mean no disrespect to you, but people come and go from websites all of the time. And besides, every website pretty much has an open door policy ~ you can take it or leave it, come back again soon, etc. Web communication is completely different than one on one human contact as I am sure you would agree. It is totally different if you choose to not post on a message board as opposed to breaking off a long term relationship face to face. Face to face, people would want to know why. On the web? It's just part of the routine. But take care!
