Language exchange partner not contacting me. :(

Postby kentaku_sama » Fri 12.26.2008 9:16 pm

I have a language exchange partner named **** *******, she was helping me learn japanese and was a good online friend. But it's been weeks since she's contacted me. She hasn't been online to MSN messenger for weeks. And hasn't emailed me back even though I've emailed her many several time. Do you think something bad happened to her :shock:
or may'be she is just busy. I hope someone can help me on this. I won't tell her Email but it's "google japan" hosted.

People are very busy at this time of year. Hopefully she'll contact you soon after New Year's.
She might even have computer problems. I can't count the number of times I've worried about not having heard from my friends in Japan, only to find out weeks later that they had a PC problem. It seems to be very common.

Just a note though, if I was your language exchange partner I would not be too happy about you posting my name up on a website somewhere; perhaps you might want to remove the name from your post.

Oh her? Yeah, she told me to tell you she's in the middle of changing internet providers and hasn't been able to log in for a while.

Oh yeah, I remember her -- nice lass. It's been ages, how is she doing these days Keat? I hope you're treating her kindly, kantaku (or I'll be very unhappy).

Rumi? I just met her in Pandion and she told me she is busy chatting with Keat and Gunda.
Don't worry, she is fine.

I also sent an e-mail to someone weeks ago and she hasn't answered yet. Do you think she's also having problems with her internet connection? Oh, and my dog is lost. Can you tell me where he is?

Talking seriously: never, ever, post someone's real name in any website unless you have their permission. It's a breach to their privacy.

Maybe the mods could remove the name since the original poster isn't very actively participating this thread.

You guys might want to remove it from the titles of your posts as well.
