If a man sends me a "how about me?" email and I check out his profile ...

and it sounds like some desperate sad sort of man that can't do much besides sit behind his computer sending out silly POF roses...

sure enough, when I get to the bottom he HAS sent out his roses.

Hehe. Yes, Colonel POF-tart with a rose in the forum...

I nearly sent a rose in a message in appreciation of a forum post recently, but then I saw the 'Be mine' comment and found it unfitting. I am not begging to get blocked.

No, mostly thorns!!

On a seperate note, yes, yes, that's the first thing I look at when opening a profile, not the picture, or the about me section, height, weight or intelligence and interests but whether she has a freakin electronic rose to send me!

Lord love a duck, this place is batsh1t!

Would they be called rosediggers?


I gave away my full allotment of roses to a nice lady who sent me both of hers (just on principle, and for purposes of making a point on this thread, lol), a full stable of roses, still intact, no less, only to discover that, under cover of darkness, the pof elves put them back. Yeah, they rearm you, after 30 days, whether you want to be rearmed or not. Sooo, if you got ditched by a rose enthusiast, without even trying, heave a "Whew!", but brace yourself, cuz they grow back, and next time you might not be so lucky. Lol


Oh, crap.

Ummm, it's a red herring, which makes it lots trickier than Clue (that rearming thing). Only if you catch him during the right 30-window, with his pants down, as it were, will you really know whether you're getting involved with a cyber slut.

Hey, I think I'll put a rose quota in my mail restrictions. I'll get pre-blocked if I so much as say "Hi" to any woman seeking intimate encounters on here. Soooo, seems only fair, and an equivalent, to debar roseless pofers.

Let's cut the bull chit for a second here......it's a virtual rose, doesn't mean anything but your are in a virtual environment trying to find a mate....a bit of cherry picking I see.. If that rose is not real then none of this "online dating" is real...

We all know that's not the case. Our online actions lead to real life encounters. No roses means, she wants to boink someone else. I'd pass....

I pay no attention to the roses. Seeing that someone has used all their roses is a pretty flimsy excuse to not contact someone. Some people have made assumptions on why someone sent one or all of them. Who cares? I have received some digital gifts. It's nice that they took the time to hit a couple extra buttons but that's about it. Mostly I've received them as a thank you for writing.

I do admit to looking at how many favorites are listed and I'm guilty of making assumptions if it's a high number but it doesn't stop me from contacting them if I wish to. One man in my age range has 305 people who have him on their favorites. I have to admit that it makes me wonder on how very particular he must be. But then again, he has nothing to do with who chooses him to put on their favorite lists. And I did write to him.
*starstuff* who is apparently not on this site anymore

Roses, favorites. How can you know why they send them? Maybe he or she knows someone struggling with and illness and sends them to that person every day. Maybe we should judge the person who never sends roses. Same for favorites, most people I know of with a large favorites number, play on the forums, "meeting" people from all over and liking what they said on one forum or another. As I have said before, my favorites list has as many women as men on it. Mainly I want to know who the person is, can they articulate who they are and are they who they say they are. I don't even look or notice roses or favorites.

This is only an issue for those who wish to continue justifying being alone in their divine splendor. Roses are only significant to frigid old bags who send them to each other. Anybody of any worth doesn't care.

I never even check that. I also have no idea if anyone has added me to their favorites and I add no one to my favorites because it reeks of either cyber stalking or, junior high popularity contests.

If someone likes you they will find a way to express that in the real world.

For some reason whenever I view someone's profile and I notice that they've sent out all of their roses, I hesitate to contact the person. I'm not quite sure why, I guess it makes me feel like they've got their heart set on someone else. After all, sending out an electronic rose is kind of a BIG DEAL


No - it means they either "accidentally" dispatched one ...or it means they worked a little extra harder at grabbing that person's attention. I tend to stay away from these profiles.


Does the rose thing make any difference to you?


Yes. It does. On the other hand, what somebody sends to somebody else in this medium should remain private. There is some PoF "logic" behind it - I guess. :/

i agree with capn_america. who gives a crap about roses? a serious conversation with the other person telling them that you actuall LIKE them beats sending electronic roses any day of the week

It's seems a bit like going into a bar and complaining about people drinking.


I'm a bit unsure why someone looking that hard for reasons not to talk to people

would bother with a dating site at all.

This whole thread is a good example of why I don't actually use this site to meet women to date.


Electronic roses?


HUH?

I have seen them, but I didn't even know what they were for. I assumed they were some stupid thing like winking or what have you.

When I receive a virtual rose it's always from someone who shows a lot more interest than most of the others I'm communicating with. So I figure two roses gone? His attention span for the month is already being spent elsewhere. Pass.
