BestpackagedealonEarth,

Imagine if POF gave us an option for sending a "gift" of a Roll of Toilet paper?
That would cover so many ways to say"bad comment" or "not interested"

Favorites??
Posted: 6/4/2009 9:08:45 AM

I could careless if someone has o or 1 rose but if they have alot of favorites then I won't contact them. If someone has a lot of favorites then they are most likely here to talk only and aren't serious about finding something long term in the future. And is most likey to continue chatting or seeing other people on the side.


Wow. That's a lot of assuming... and you know what they say about that. :) Most of those who have favorited me, have never contacted me. The vast majority of men I have been contacted by and conversed with... don't favorite me. (hmm, should I be offended??) My assumption on the favorites thing, mainly because it's what I do... is they see something interesting about me and "bookmark" me, intending to come back later and say "hi." Though of the ones that favorite me AND contact me... they move to the front of the line. I don't know why... they just do. :)

And back to the topic... I rarely contact guys anyway, and if I see they are down roses, it DOES make me hesitate, because I wonder if they are already interested elsewhere. But it doesn't keep me from contacting them if I'm truly interested. If he contacts me, however, I don't pay a bit of attention to how many roses he does or doesn't have. As mentioned several times already, roses can be sent to anyone for any reason. They're virtual... and don't mean a thing past "I find you interesting at the moment, let's get to know each other better." Which is kinda the whole point of this site, so why take offense?

What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;

Romeo and Juliet

Can so much importance be placed on something so insignificant. it's a virtual rose if you gonna be upset ask the guy did he send her real ones because the virtual ones are worth just what you pay for them nothing.

No hesitation at all.
Wouldn't date a POF'er without a rose...
(she might not be a virgin)
If she has TWO, then she's GOTTA be a virgin!

Love these playful sarchasm threads...

of course, Stein, Frost, Shakespeare all said it first...a rose is (just) a rose...
(even if its a non-wilting VIRTUAL rose)

... been here years...never gave one...never got one.
But there is an amazing "american beauty" bush out front,
and "blushing chastity" bush out back. real rose, real prolific.

I give roses all the time...to all the women in my non-cyber life.
My mother, my "adoptive" mom, my daughter, my dates, the church ladies...
my secretary, the Doc's wife, my neighbors...
I hope they don't think I am too easy!

One rose left...
I leave her alone.
She is obviously keen on someone.

No roses left....
I may email her.
She wears her heart on her sleeve and is sending em out willy-nilly.
Obviously the first didn't take, so the second may not either.

I send the roses as needed to someone that sounds like they need it.

Some won't contact if they have several "friends" but I think that no longer displays on our profiles, so now you have to just count them... yeah right!

Think about this a minute. If an inventory of digital flowers is all it takes to stand in the way of sending a "person of interest" a simple e-mail hello, then what does that say? Good grief, people, this is an on-line dating site ... not a game show to guess someone's character or whether they're involved with somebody else or not, based on 0, 1, or 2 roses.

Same holds for the digital steak, glass of wine, or box of chocolates. E-mails are inherently impersonal enough, but if all it takes is a picture of a dog in a cardboard box to win someone's interest then it's a good time to take a long, hard look at what we're doing here.

Logically, we could argue the meaning behind a 5,000-pt. background, too. Does that mean a person is selfish, stingy, and can't be counted on to buy an occasional digital tap beer?

I'm with angelsback -- this whole "digital gift" concept is beyond juvenile.

I get two roses a month, so I send out two a month. If I see a nice girl who I think deserves one, out it goes, eh. How many women do I know who get offended somehow if they receive a real rose? Not too many, I don't think, and they all have issues, so I send the roses and the bad ones stay away.

Any nice girls out there not get a rose?

Ok I started seeing a guy here whom I gave a 2nd chance to. It was same thing different day. He just did not have the time in his day to pick up the phone to call. He text he a quick message once a week.

Weekends he would want to come over MAYBE for few hrs on a Sat night NEVER SUNDAY.

I happened to look at his profile said 0 roses can be sent.
I sent him one awhile back, I never got a rose. He said he can't control who messages him.

True, but with how unreliable he has bee with me no doubt in my mind--HE'S LOOKING at someone else! So if no roses I guess I stand by my previous word--he's taken--he's wooing someone else. Dealbreaker.

Exactly, Melissa49ca,

He had 2 roses. I sent him one. Then I noticed he was missing the other when he gave me all this BS that there was no other GFs. We already started seeing each other and he always had 2 roses could be sent. There's someone else--trust me!!

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.

its kind of a weird issue....

it turn me off if someone send me a rose too quickly, and I would probably be telling them to Slow Down...

So I guess that means the virual rose means something in my book....

Thus if a man or woman has no roses left to say be mine...Wouldn't that kind of mean that they are either playing around willy nilly or are so desperate they are giving them to everyone they talk to.

I would say that yes it would bug me that I had someone talking to me who had no roses in their account, especially someone that says they are not daing right now....

So that explains it. I have these imaginary scratches on my arms and hands and I had no idea where they came from. It's from the imaginary roses I've been hanging onto. I better send them to my imaginary girlfriend.

the roses refresh every 30 days....

Interesting one person had of putting it to me....

If they not committed to you yet then its like a Valentine's party in grade school.

Yet if they been telling you different, or trying make you think they the only one they talking to...It might be a question one would want to bring up....
