3 rules to dead conversations

it is a genuine thing that happens and it pisses me off there is no alternative other than to say bye and leave

you can tell a conversation is dead when:

1) the person in question takes longer than 7 minutes to reply per once sentence you type
2) person in question gives one word answers to a maximum of 6 and offers no development what so ever or any emotional involvement e.g. lol, an emoticon, or any other type of non-robotic element to it.

they normally end what they say in a 'u?' followed by not replying for longer than usual as they feel 'you can wait' and you answering your own question has bought them some valuable time.

..this normally last around 10-11 minutes

3) the person in question asks no questions other than the ones u asked them,
or make no attempt to update the expected 'wuu2?' phrase

it gets really bad when the person ur talking to says

'brb'

as a means of excusing themselves from the insufferable deadness/awkwardness of the conversation when in fact they're still there the whole time noticeable by the fact they stupidly change their screen name or display picture or reply straight away when you ask if they're back or not, as they wont tell you they are.

its at this point you shud think about just leaving because this has now been officially driven into the 'dead conversation' folder. and it aint coming back.

there are other people out there, that the person your trying so hard to please is talking to, that are clearly far more important/interesting than you are!
similarly, they could be watching a movie or perhaps doing something else that requires their ABSOLUTE undivided attention!
so don't bother giving them exactly that.

dwelling on past mishaps is for the weak. you must stride into the future, unabashed and prepared to fuck up yet again.
