Thank you!

I like to read all the evil, sharp, and funny comments by the forum ladies.
They give me ideas as to what to talk about should date a girl similar.

I agree I think in the long run people will find out that the forums is where the action is. It contains live updated people and eliminates the inactive ghost that only do profiles and answer there messages three years later.They have a lot of ghost that view forums too. Look at the amount of views verses amount of comments.

I'm here for Igor's posts, occasionally someone else writes something inspiring or funny but mostly the OP just gets the crap beat out of them when they want some perspective...dating, done with that, have a cyber crush on Igor :)

I like the forums because I actually become attracted to people by what they say and how they debate. There are some people I wouldn't contact on their profile alone, but they were so engaging during a debate they had me enamored. Oh my goodness I totally had the hots for this Aussie, we use to subtly flirt on this board. He was fun to engage discussions with. And then there this bigger bald burly musician I looked forward to reading and crushed on. Some of the women were a pleasure to converse with too. Then there are others that have a so-so profile but you see their insecure misogynistic rantings and you know you're not interested even if their profiles were OK. The forums can definitely supplement your profile - for better or worse. Sometimes I wish more people would participate just so I can get more of a taste of good ones.

Those that stopped trying to date on here and are for the forums only - that could be to your detriment if you're great conversationalist, liberal, open-minded and understanding. If not... well trying to date from here and being on the forums is probably more of hindrance than a help.

Both, but the forums are much more entertaining than the men who message me.


Exactly and I'm so tired of getting 'hi' messages. Right now my profile is hidden b/c I need a break from the people who are messaging me. Ugh.

I'm new to the forums, what does "OP" mean, and how do I look at a profile of a member on the forum?
I am much more interested in reading forums.

hahaha I come here for the forums only as well.

My whole purpose of joining this website was for finding a date but considering the lack of good guys on here, I found forums to be a bit more entertaining.

^^^^ Congrats Zermatt!
I am here just for the forums too. I live in a rural area, and I had no idea some folks think the way they do. Its been a great learning place for me. Last month was the one year mark for me and my sweety. :)

All the cool kids hang out in the forums...yep ;)
I think it can work for both sides of the coin though.
Contributions into forum discussions offer way more insight into peeps than reading a profile does in my opinion.
If I was looking, I'd start here.....

I use both sides...when the dating side isn't so fun I'm here learning and laughing. If I've had a bad experience I just read about other bad experiences and realize mine wasn't so bad after all.

I agree.

But I never wanted to date, I only create a profile to be able to post on the forum. I only uploaded photos in response to a poster who has since left (Gwen) thinking I must be very fat because I did not have any pics.

Yep. Just forums for now. I will use the site for dating again, once I'm fully recovered from a recent experience with easily the most horrendous, harmful, heartless, havoc-causing, haranguing, hateful, heinous, half-assed excuse for a human I have ever dated.

^ See? not recovered.

I know you will recover, Helen.

In the meantime, it's great to have you back!
