|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.
