Rematches

Why is it that no one rematches? I have had a few good 1-1 games, but then people just run away. Its fun to play the same person a few times. Can someone explain why players 1400-1600 don't rematch 1/0 or 3/0?

It's because we're scared of you, chess freak.

depends are your games fun or boring... i tend to rematch the people who can get into weird positions more over the ones where it's the same games over and over again

I think people rematch me about 1 in 10 times I offer it, whether I won or lost the game. It's starting to get so annoying waiting for a response to my rematch offer (which usually remains unaccepted and unrejected), that I'm just going to start leaving without bothering.

I never accept a rematch because from my experience in chess.com, in the few times I accepted a rematch, the opponent fired an engine (probably) against me.
So I am not willing to take the engine risk.

Why there are zillion threads whining about re-matches? why can t people learn to press "new opponent" button and move on with their lives?

#6, so people play at first a regular game and cheat in the second one? Did you hear this, Irwin?

Strange are the people and I have no decoder.

@sargon
What do you find so strange about this?
Immature people are so mad that you have beaten them, so they use every weapon they have to beat you back.
I wasn't imagining it, suddenly after a patzer game they became Kasparov. or if they got in trouble in the rematch, suddenly they made super excellent suspicious defensive moves and won the game.
If I could ensure my opponent can't use an engine, I'd gladly play a rematch if I have time and not too tired from the first game.

I'll rematch sometimes, if it was a good close match and the rematch might be another good close match. If I took a real crushing I might not. Also, if I know I screwed up somewhere I might want to go straight to analysis to find out where/how.
