what is the difference between actively seeking a relationship and looking for a relationship....is it the way we have answered questions or something else?

Maybe it's just me but they mean the same thing. Isn't actively seeking the same as looking?
Overall to me it means desiring to find one.

If you go to the drop down menu of options for that setting, in "edit profile" you will see that one of the options is something about "serious and looking for someone to marry." When that is selected, what shows up in the profile is the "actively seeking a relationship." If you pick the option of seriously looking but without the word "marry" then what pops on your profile is "looking for a relationship."

It's beyond me why we're not only asked to select TWICE on what we seek (we already had the friends, dating, etc options) but furthermore the language used when you make your selection is NOT the same as what winds up in your profile but...pointless to wonder TOO much about the mysteries of this site :)

So, in brief, the difference between the two is someone actually picked the looking for someone to marry...I discovered this by selecting each of the options and updating profile and then looking at my profile to see what popped up. As w/ many things in POF, sometimes you have to run your own "tests" to see how things work !
