It depends how it is written. If you are going to write a massive story please put it in paragraphs. If it reads like "So at 9:51 am today my friend said... this and her boyfriend said this... and O m gosh I can't believe she said this back to me and I said... then she said this O my gosh my friend is such a bitch and I said... then I get fed up with it. Also I know you need some information but it can be how a person words it, writes it etc that makes the difference. If the spelling or grammar or sentences are so badly constructed you can't understand it I often won't bother answering either especially if there are paragraphs of it.
As long as I have been here on GAG, @Imhotshot and as many MHOs as I have gotten, if I have time, and apparently I have had this Time, I will surely Answer a Long one, even if I 'Scroll down,' I can get the Jest of the Question and get right to the root of the Problem at hand. If I am busy and see some shorties, I will Respond and even make my own 'Answer'... Lengthy. Good luck. xx
Well i think the main question can be answered within the first few sentences of the description.
If a guy ignores your texts, for instance, no amount of "he looked at me and smiled once, and dropped his pen near me in class, and stared at me in the hallway. .. etc " will make me change my thoughts on the situation. I will skim to be sure I haven't missed anything, then pass judgment :)
I feel bad for sometimes skipping it, because honestly I do not want to be reading an essay, I want to skip all the minor things that don't need to be mention and get to the main point, I understand a little background info is needed but does it really have to be THAT long?
It depends on what type of question it is. I don't mind reading but not if it's some long, drawn out spiel about like why white people are superior or about someone's bf/gf obviously being a tool and then them asking whether they should leavee them.
