|I don't know if its just me, but i think it is hilarious that someone will put you on their favorites list and never drop you an email or anything. What is the point of being on your favorites then? Wishful thinking won' get you a date. Say hi or something. Anyone else get this?|

|these are the only people who add me....except for the great friends i've made on the forums...and one spectacular nonposting fish. i don't ever call 'em on it....i'm shallow...and like people thinking i might actually be popular or something.|

|I guess it just seems to me that if you are gonna put someone on your faves list you'd at least say hi or something ya know. You can't be that much of a favorite if they won't even email you, so i think maybe they should just rename it or something|

|I end up deleting them. Like you I wonder the same thing.|

|here is the thing though... i delete them, and then they add me again????? its obvious they are interested because they keep adding me after i delete them but yet they still don't email. Freaking baffling to me!|

|I have just recently joined here, and I admit, I have a few people on my favorites that I have yet to contact.|
I added them because something caught my interest and rather than sort through a hundred people to try to find their profile again, I figured it would be easier to have them all in one place. Eventually, after giving them some thought, I plan on either contacting or deleting them.
I did contact one of them and got a positive response, so until I speak further/meet with him, I guess the rest will sort of stay in limbo. However, if they decided to delete me in the meantime, I would not add them again. I would assume that to mean that they saw my profile and were not interested.
I wonder if some people are just too shy to initiate contact and are hoping that by adding someone to their favorites, that person will take the lead.

|i agree with you that it is easier to put someone on your faves temporarily so you don't have to go through finding them again... i guess i am talking about the one's that have you on their faves list for over a few weeks. I don't think shyness should play a part in this because this in "online dating". You aren't talking directly to someone... you are typing on your computer and maybe looking at a pic of them...not too hard. I guess i will never know... until then, i'll keep on deleting|

|__I message the ones who place me on their fav list. Almost all said they like my posts on these forum. Make me proud. |
Posted: 7/30/2005 11:32:17 AM
|I think I've contacted all the people on my fav's list....the one's that live too far away I may not contact via email, but I like to chat with them in the forums, but who knows...maybe I will drop a line and say hi from my neck of the woods. I wind up deleting the ones that put me on their fav's list if they've never spoken to me through forums or by email.|

|I use my favorites list so I can stalk, um I mean FIND them later. hehehe|

|Hate to tell you this texas - those are guys posing as girls - they like your pics!|

|I'm not sure I understand why a complete stranger would add me to their fave list. |
Maybe the comedic purposes of my profile?
Maybe use the pictures of me as a visual to tell horror stories to their kids at night?
Gathering around the computer with friends for a good, hearty laugh?
I highly doubt it'd be a positive reason for my looks. I could give Shrek a run for his money.

|The best thing to do is to pay no attention to who has you on their fave's. They'll either contact you or not. I've deleted people and had them add me time and time again ... so I just gave up on it. The number of people who have me on their list flutuates from time to time .... it usually goes down when I add anything that may be perceived as b*tchy to my profile. |

|TexasGuy, some ladies are a bit old-fashioned when it comes to contacting guys. They want YOU to make the first move, and are trying to give you a hint that they are interested. Maybe you should drop them a line, "Hey, I see I'm on your favorites list. Want to chat?" It wouldn't hurt to try.|
Posted: 7/30/2005 12:28:27 PM
|I might just have to try that... thanks for the tip. Really, i only am deleting the ones that i don't have any interest in whatsoever.|

|Texasguy....I thought I was the only one. I'm new here and I found it odd. Me being me, I give people the benefit of the doubt. With that being the case, I figured they may be shy or insecure. I am sure in some cases they are and maybe in time they will send a message. Reality is if some one takes the time and intrest to want to keep tabs on a Fish Bowl member and won't contact them it's kind of creepy. I think it would be better for all concerned if you come across some one and your contemplating contacting them or maybe your just some internet stalker make yourself a list in a word file or in a note book. Atleast, that way if and when you do decide or gather the courage to contact the member of your intrest, they won't know that 'You've been watching them' or for how long. |

|I completely agree...I don't have alot of people on mine- but at least most of them have contacted me...|
It is kind of creepy to have someone on your list and they don't contact you at all
I think it would be a good idea if the admins made it so you get notified of being added to someones fav list....That way- at least you know...Or even if they allow you to take yourself off of thier fav list...Ewww....I know- but I think its a good idea
Well- backto my party :)

Or even if they allow you to take yourself off of thier fav list

|I find it a compliment, although I haven't figured out how to do it myself.|

|We should have a list labeled, "People we are interested in, and want to contact" or something to that effect. |
I agree, fav's should be for people we've met.

To add someone to your fave's ......
View their profile.
To the right of their headline you'll see "Add to favourites"
Click on it.
