In England: do you have to send an e-mail before an on-line chat? It happened twice that I was chating online with someone from England and they ended the conversation by giving me their e-mail and saying (if you wanna send a message) and they didn't appear on-line to me afterwards. I wanna know: did they do that cause they thought of me as a boring or silly chat-mate or only cause it's the normal thing in England to "book" an on-line chat by an e-mail in advance? @Asamichan89 Thanks. Actually we had a conversation for one time and it was ended that way. I assume it means that they have already 'judged' me.

Hi Heba, perhaps they had other things to do. Why not try and communicate?

Well, it depends. They wanted you to send an e-mail first so in that way they will get to know you better before they add you as a contact/friend in whatever application they use for chatting. And also, sometimes they are not available to 'chat'. They can just reply you via e-mail whenever they get time :)
