Well, this is a dating site like you said so what do they expect? The only ones who say they are looking for friends are just looking for the long road to get into a woman's pants."You're right.
I have, in fact, met some really good friends off here, and clearly spell out that I'm not looking for anything more both in my profile and any conversations I have with other fishies. Looking for or offering "friends" or "lets just be friends" or "friends first" usually (and always online) = "I want to control and dictate the relationship. No matter what I maintain the self image that I am a good person, doing good altruistic things, an innocent hiding behind the shield of the word friend."If a woman is just looking for "friends", its an out.I have an idea of how you are supposed to behave, and how I want you to behave. But it's too much work to actually communicate them so I will just use the handy word of "friend" which really has no meaning by itself, only what I define it as. If she dates you and doesnt like you she can always pull the "I have always said I wanted to be friends"...Friends is one of the "looking for" options the site offers.2. Men and women both select "friends" and "hang out."4.There is a back button for getting away from such illegitimate types.5."I live in hope that men will stop emailing hoping to change my mind Actually, I am not looking for emails at all....................
I have my profile listed as "friends" - "forums" is currently not an option.
(and so do you ;) )This is not just a dating site otherwise there would be no option for just looking for talk/email or friends.
Stop being so concerned about what other people are doing and pay attention to your own life.
I'm not bitter, I've friend-zoned girls I wasn't interested in myself.
Give and take."Honestly, who in this day and age just comes onto a DATING site to meet just a friend?
We have no desire for those who are looking for those thing to contact us.
