Why are you here?Page 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
Maybe the you get that snotty "Why are you here?" question because you are a beautiful woman. And when a man sees a beautiful woman, he wants to get to know her. Perhaps when you say you are not here to date and have a relationship it's a defence mechamism. Maybe they feel rejected, and use it to annoy you, or try to hurt you. Their hopes have been dashed, so it's only natural that some, not all, but some will be snotty about it. And when it's done online, there's really no consequence in being a jerk.



dwinottawa that was a lovely thing for you to say and I think you have a point there. Someone once posted in another thread on a different topic pertaining to rudeness that I have always remembered and keep in my mind when someone says something rude and insulting: There is always someone out there who will try to make you feel small so they can have a moment where they can feel big!

Once you clarified your question, I just mentioned what seemed obvious to me greanize. It always was that way, and always will be I think, just using a different forum. I remember back in the dark ages when we had no online dating, or even computers, if a couple of us gals went out to a bar to have a girl's night out, the men would hit on us, and when turned away, would get quite smart assed and snotty. And I remember some doozies. The thing then was at least we could turn around and embarrass the hell out of them in front of the crowd in a bar.

Times have changed, but human nature hasn't.

I hate it when men say " Why is a beautiful girl like you single...."

Maybe because I have a mind and I need to satsify that too along with my physical needs?? Geez.

I am here now, because most of my friends are here and I host a monthly event that if I stop I would be hung...lol

I do sometimes get hassled when men see that I am not interested in anything but friendship...but heck..I found my soulmate...and low and behold I found him at a POF event...so I stay and host an event to say thank you to POF and the gang for giving me happiness.

/\/\/\/\/\/\ See, that is what frustrates me. Why should anyone ever be hassled. If your profile states you are not looking to meet anyone or go out on dates, then that should be end of story. There is no need to be hassled or have to explain "Why you are here".

I solved my problem for a while. I hid my profile until the time comes that I feel I am ready to hang my single shingle out again!

Yep I have to agree with you Amore !
Seems more like a pof web party group who love to meet & drink .
And also have to agree about most events tend to only draw couples and very few singles if any .
Oh yes some will say their all singles but never saw many who actually were single at these events so I tend to not bother with much of these events any more.

the only reason you both would be thinking that is the length of time youve been on this site . Richard whats this your 8th yr here ? I guess some folks dont get the fact that their shitty atitude and bitterness towards the opposite sex may be what handcuffs them to pof or other dating sites .... Richard no one wants a grumpy oldman =] .... wow... some folks on pof have made friends with others on this site..... thats called socal networking ...isnt that what this site is for . If you people put in as much effort in your emailing habits as you do ****ing about this and that on pof you wouldnt be single .

amore dont be greedy that wasnt all ment for you , just the parts that apply to what youve posted . I dont see what the big deal is with couples attending the events where they met , its them that gets everyone on the dance floor .... how about this visual for your ALL singles POF party.......

people show up

they order drinks

the music is playing

girls are on the dance floor

guys stand around the dance floor like gators waiting for a snack

they order more drinks ( even the host =] )

the party ends

keep in mind... some of the people that complain about the couples being there have shown up at some point in time during there pofing career with someone they have met off this site ... or elsewhere

HAHAHA!
Theres Old almost got a name again !LOL
Hey firmbear has never been grumpy with available ladies ! He only gets grumpy with tranies and women who are not single on here! haha
Too bad alot of people do not know how to lighten up and realize just because someone comments on a forum does not mean the person is grumpy !
But I have noticed alot don't take time to read and understand most things posted in these forums or even when they read the local news paper !.
Maybe that explains why so many on here don't date but rather sit at home and complain about stuff posted in forums!
And as to when did I first join this site that was 2005 . And the first 2 years I never even knew about these forums or if they were even free to post in. And over the past two years seems to me by my findings that women I find interesting enough to send email to don't even read them . They tend to just check who sent them and see if they have a pic and then delete the email. LOL
And Old almost got a name I may not be geting any ladies from pof interested in me but I have and continue to meet sweet ladies even you'd kill to date !
But yep still no ladies really seeking long term that I have found .
Oh well life is short so who cares I am gonna have fun with or with out a mate.
