The site has levelled the playing field!! No longer will we know if someone has 189 on 0 favorites!!

We still can see who has added us as favorites, just don't get the numbers posted. Not hard to take, and there is another thread on the topic.

(Think I may move to Greenville South Carolina!!)

Now instead of the last 5 posts, you get to see the last 25 threads they posted in!!

We are all a bit snoopy when it comes to knowing what other people might have said, oh these are public forums, so we aren't sooping, we are gleaning information.

If at first you don't succeed, try try again!

I use the favorites to remind me
1:) of whom I have sent a note to, or
2:)of whom I would like to send a note to or
3:)of whom I would love to get a reply back from!

The latter is usually the part that is most excellently upsetting, as nothing comes back.

The best way to meet someone from this site is to attend events, OH wait, they don't happen as often anymore, so will some one please get a meet and greet organized!!

I got tired of sending out notes to say "hi, blah blah" and getting no response. So I added a note on my profile that states that if I put you on my favs its my way of flirting so drop me a line. I have gotten more polite responses this way rather than wasting my time with notes. Sad, so sad that people cant even write back to say Thank you for the favs compliment but I am not interested. ... guess some people just got no manners.

Well, at least the number no longer shows on your profile

I add my favorite people from the forums and the occasional local guy if I'm enjoying the conversations. I don't warn them beforehand, I assume that they will figure it out eventually and if they don't like it, they can simply remove themselves..

I never check out my favourites list. Usually, when I don't have time to message the person, I add her into my favourites, but then I noticed that she took herself off my list.

So I don't bother messaging back, I figure she wasn't interested probably.

Well I've perused the replies to this thread because I, too, was wondering why I was made a favorite several times and why only two of the people have actually contacted me. So I should either:

--take it as a compliment and let it be

--take it as a hint and contact those people if I'm interested

--ignore it completely

--assume that if I was not contacted at a later date, than those people changed their minds

I dis agree,,,not that it means anything, but on Facebook, or here, lots of "Smiles", and whats her name has sent a gift", send me a message. No need for a "Gift" Some, or, well, a couple, have been very interested in, but get a daily gift...Friggin annoying.

random people add me to their fave list all the time.
its kind of creepy without even messaging?
I thought its to remember some ones profile, be friendly and than send a message.
If they add me, i have no desire to contact them first.
If you found something that interests you and added me to that, than message me? dont just have me there or ill remove you. I wait few days first. but it doesn't do anything, so i don't really care.

I know it may be rude, but if someone adds me to their faves list and does not contact me, I delete them! It's kinda creepy. What do they want? Just to know when I was last online?








that's exactly how i feel lol

I personally only add someone to my favorites list if I've met them in person and we're still talking.
Otherwise there's really no reason for me to favorite anyone.

i dont understand why add someone to favorites after you already talking? lol the emails or phone number exchange should establish the idea of friendships. i look at who favorited me and if im interested ill email them or fave them back , if not i delete them , kinda like a non interested idea

if you do not want to draw any attention and go back later to read a persons profile, you can add their profile page link as a favorite or bookmark in your browser (IE, Firefox, Safari, etc.). yes, that's right... IT for the last twenty years. :) never use favorites in here. well, unless you want the attention of course.

happy days.

I agree with some posts above that "favorite-ing" is just another word for "bookmarking". There is no reason to make a big deal out of it. If and when contact is made, so be it. It's a good convenience. But one thing that puzzles me is that the system seems to keep shuffling the order of the favorites when I return to give them another look. This makes it hard to keep straight whom I've contacted, even with that note feature.

Well, it's one thing to add someone when your profile is open and viewable. It's another thing to add someone when your profile is hidden, and you're only here for the forums. Especially when said person keeps adding you, after you've removed them.

The problem isn't that you have "hidden" your profile, the problem is you have been added to hsomeones{/i] favorites list and therefore you are not hidden. You have to go to the list that says " who added you" and delete yourself them from that list, while staying "hidden" anyone that has added you or you have added will still be able to see your profile.

At least that's how it has been in the past, but with all the changes happening it may have changed, but I don't think so.

It's a great place to use as my disingenuous file.People that are inviting and down to earth and welcome
all messages.These are where I have more than 4 or 5 things in common.Basically where the liars are.

It maybe different for the ladies, but scammers use favorites as bookmarks, so if you're a guy I would just delete them
