How do we get that same feeling of "one on one"? Why do we "connect" with one person but not another? After all, we really don't know anyone we haven't met, do we? What IS that "spark" that ignitesrepparttar "fire"? Why do we "connect" with some people and not others?

I've found so many kind and helpful people onrepparttar 127460 internet, and I often wonder what "IT" is that causes that.

Why do you join a program or two? Is it because somehow you seemed to "connect" withrepparttar 127461 owner(s)? You just "feel" you can trust them, right? Why?

I think a lot of it has to do withrepparttar 127462 fact they respond to your inquiries with a personal touch. They takerepparttar 127463 time to email you - not just send a cold impersonal autoresponder message.

Ever emailed (to their personal email address) after receiving an autoresponder message and waited for a reply that never came? I have. Did you continue any further? I didn't.

Ever come across a great looking site and sent them an email complimenting them? Perhaps even feeling so "fired up and bold" that you throw in a question asking for a little help? I have. Still waiting for a reply? I am.

Ever unsubscribed from a newsletter because you don't have a clue whorepparttar 127464 editor is? There's no mention of a name? I have.

How long does it take for someone to send a simple email? A "thank you" or even an acknowledgment that they've received it and will get back to you as soon as they can?

Maybe soon they'll have allrepparttar 127465 time inrepparttar 127466 world! But it won't be onrepparttar 127467 internet.

Be interactive. Let people know you're a real person onrepparttar 127468 other end of that mouse.

Pretend you're seated across from me at a kitchen table on a hot summer evening with June bugs bouncing off repparttar 127469 screens and distant heat lightning inrepparttar 127470 horizon.
