Feel i am becoming addicted to POF i am on it every spare moment. Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
I am a little worried i am becoming addicted to POF it is great fun chatting away especially as i rattle about in my house on my own most of the time but unfortunately i get nothing else done.
I sit up late, admittedly usually in bed chatting away and then struggle to get up in the morning i was going to start work at 7 and here it is 9.20 and i am still on here am i losing the plot? Has anyone else experienced this? Any idea how i can curb this addiction? I don't think time limits will work cos i have no one to answer to or to tell me off.
Opinions welcome good or bad but please don't b to horrid to me.

I would imagine most of us have at some point. I just close my account every now and again or actually get involved in the dating side more ............What better way is there of occupying your time than a good woman in your bed !!

The best way to curb your addiction could be to get laid? I find that I'll happily sit on here for hours unless I've got something more important to do (anything) prioritise your work, if you dont need to work, then it doesnt matter. My job is such that I have long periods of doing jaff all which get spread over various tinternet sites, its a hard job, but I struggle on.

it happens alot when you first start going on , after a while you will become bored of it, and sick of some of the people who post on here as well and will leave for a short while and then return.

it will straighten itself to a normal amount of time in the end , whatever a normal amount might mean

Open the closest window and throw your PC out, instant cure!
Try not to injure anyone in the process...

The best cure is another message board to become addicted to.

Many a true word.......?

I don't spend as much time on here now or write to anybody and prefer to keep
to myself since I came back recently after deleting my profile on here last month.....

I would suggest taking up another worth while past time OP like morris dancing or yoga

i'm also an addict...

i got bored with chatting, messaging and dating a long time ago tho, and only come on to read and post on the forums. it worries me too. every now and again i delete so that i can catch up with my life but i normally come back.

i'm really happy to not be involved or have profiles on any other sites because i just wouldn't cope with them all.

now i set myself targets... when i have done this, that and the other then i log on - learn to compromise with your committments.

compared to other sites I've been on I find the forums here quite slow - so actually find I spend less time on here which is great - I'm actually getting out and doing other things rather than getting too involved on here

I have to agree, i was on a different site, where there was chatroom, that was pretty addictive, the forums here are pretty slow compared.

Hey don't worry about it we're all addicted. I have noticed it's all the usual faces/forumites posting here.

I have tried many times to quit, but I can't. I no longer can find the time to date.

OP. Stick with it, but go fishing too.
Not getting any poffy points for saying it, it works.
The 'addiction' to the site will pass quickly.
I'm still dating and enjoying a fish that I met on this site.
Although, I have to say, "This my fishy friend" disnae work as an introduction

My names Mac and I am an addict .

I first come onto this site to meet like minded people then ventured onto the forums.
How was I to know the hellish journey ahead of me ?

I started off with the odd post here and there but then it became progressively worse as the minutes turned into hours and the hours turned into days.

Eventually my dog was taken into care where he was under nourished, I had neglected to feed him because I was too busy in a copy and paste war ( I had wondered why he had been whimpering under my pc desk with those sorrowful eyes)
But rest assured there is help out there !!

as a relative newbie to the forums on this site I'm still trying to come to grips with all the rules

It kind of stunts the flow when people reply to something you've said but you can't reply back because you've posted your alloted quota on a particular subject.

The longer and more wordy your posts the more posts you can have !!
This way you can override your alloted quota !!

ah so that's how they do it - I was wondering lol

but does anyone read all the very long posts?

I can never be bothered - lol





this is a very strange rule - I have had to pad this out to make my reply which seems a lot of hard work
