The situation is quite simple, you see a profile that peaks your interest so you decide to add them! You're in luck, the person accepts your request! Good job! Now comes the seemingly complicated part for some people, you message them. Doesn't seem that complicated right? Well that's where you my guy or gal would be mistaken. You message them interested to plot a roleplay, still seems easy but no, your message then proceeds to sit unanswered for days, weeks, months hell maybe even years if it comes to that. Now this part sucks but what sucks even more I hear you typing? The person who you messaged being online all the time still not replying to your message but seem to be chatting and roleplaying with everyone else! Now this is where I leave it to you my internet friends: Why do people do this?
I'm looking for active roleplayers who will actually take the time to talk with me out of character so we can develop a plot and have an awesome roleplay together! Some specific characters I'm looking for are the members of the band 5 Seconds of Summer and a Harry Styles. I'm looking for someone who is literate that writes in third person, I write anywhere from one liners to a paragraph I don't really do multi-para or novella (sorry!) I'm a big fan of the romance, band, celebrity, drama and real life genres, I'm not a fan of doing doubles so to anyone who is hoping for that I am again sorry. If you are also looking for the same things I've listed above, feel free to add me! I look forward to hearing from you! :)

Yeesh, you and me both. Just joined a Zombie Apocalypse Discord roleplay promising to be big and awesome.
Haven't heard anything.
No one is posting in it except for me.

I feel your pain. Unfortunately I grew up in a pretty rough situation so when I RP “gritty Street Life” I’m just talking about being five and that apparently terrifies people. So I thought well I’ll do Crime or mafia RP. Nope, these people have no idea what crime is and finally when I find a crime/Mafia discord group... no one is active and they hate me when they are active because I can shut their entire organization down immediately. It’s not braggadocio it’s just a familiarity with criminality. I have a clean record. Either way I want to create a vampire RP. A group of sorts.

[I might be interested. My luck around here seeking out new roleplayers has been "meh" as well. I'm a multipara/novella writer if you don't mind.]

Yeah. Anymore my involvement here is limited to who or what can help me with my professional writing. So if I need an interaction with a modest person, I can try and find someone for my OC to have coffee with. If it seems like it went no where that’s because I’m not going to do all the heavy lifting and I see how my OC would behave now that it’s the subject of an independent video game development. People here are all about them. What can you do for me me me me? Well, I can do a lot, why should I? From now on I RP on discord with people I find or have known here.
