dating; friends; talk/email; long-term ....perceptions of these termsPage 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
The first part of this one, posted 6/23/06 is more what I've found. For a brief - very brief - time, I put Talk/Email on my profile, since I'd come to the conclusion that was the best I'd get where I lived then. I was inundated with requests to chat naked via webcam (give me a break, I wouldn't have done that 40 years ago, and who in their right mind wants to look at a 60-something naked woman?), phone numbers to call because they wanted me to talk dirty to them - ad nauseum. One man I'd been in contact with for quite awhile also had asthma, and one afternoon he started wheezing in the middle of a conversation. I asked if he needed to take a break and use his inhaler, and he said no, he just liked the sound of my voice and was jacking off. That was our last conversation, btw.

Well, I'm a guy so to me they mean

Friends = Casual sex
E-mail/Talk= Talking about sex THEN having casual sex
Dating = Going dancing then having sex
Long Term = Not getting any more sex.

I find most people just ignore the "looking for" section. The terms are very general and depend on the person as to what they really mean. The way I look at it. Talk to a person, learn about them. Much better than judging somebody by a term.

I don't even pay attention to that part of the looking for section tbh. its too vague and it can mean different things to different people. I'm not even sure what mine is set at right now...
