I really doubt you've played games for that long considering you don't seem to understand something that has been in games since they were able to connect to another device.
Also, what reason do you have to ignore those games? What do you think people do when they finish trading? Get off the game until items magically pop into their inventory only to trade again? No, they go back to playing the game to get more items to trade.
If you're having problems playing with others, then I don't know what to say or how to help. I've had friends from all over the world and not once have I ever heard them complain about lack of players, even ones from central Europe, where you claim to be from.
