There seems to be a lack of good manners and respect when things end... it's just silence and nothing and being left to pick up the pieces. Yup, safe to say I think they are a waste of time and resources a lot of the time...
I agree 100% that is a massive possibility. It is an incorrect and immature way to deal with problems. If anything, and this is something I am working to do all the time, you must communicate more...clearly in an online relationship. Sometimes its easy for both sides to fluff up the relationship and just flirt and talk the fun stuff.
Ideally one or the other or both on any given topic brings up the challenge, especially within 24 hours. It really helps clear the air and makes the fluffing a lot more fun
If those serious topics aren't cleared quickly, and this has to happen more clearly than in person, then things slide quickly on both sides.
At least thats my take
