Okay, so let's say you start reading this blog that you really like, so you email the blogger and strike up a correspondence. And let's say you've sort of got a digital, cross-country crush on said blogger, though you know he's not in the least attracted to you because the one thing that he said upon seeing your picture was "You look just like my brother." And let's also say that this blogger is like totally cool and has been there and done everything (and everybody) and, while you don't exactly want to be just like him since you're a totally different kind of person, you still like vicariously living through him. And let's say that, while not exactly seeing him as a father-figure, you do think of him as an aloof, distant mentor who you're desperate to gain the attention and approval of.
Now, let's say that his correspondence-volume has decreased in the last few months, to the point that he only seems to answer every other email. And let's say that, due to the wonders of Site Meter, you know that he doesn't read your blog, either. And let's say that all this makes you anxious that he doesn't really like you and is trying to tactfully hint that he just wants you to go away.
So, saying all of this, should you take the hint and accept your exile from his inbox, or should you email him voicing your feelings and concerns, or should you just ignore it and email him as usual?
