Profiles still up but in a relationship??Page 1 of 1    
I was wondering why so many women (and men too I am sure, although I don't peruse their profiles) keep their profiles up, are active weekly, if not daily, yet are in a relationship or seeing someone when you email them, (of course could be just a nice way of saying no thanks.) Way I see it, if you are in a relationship then why are you still looking?? If you don't want to converse with someone, just tell them no thanks. It is much better to just be honest then not answer or give a "I'm seeing someone" but are still active on the site, makes me wonder what the other party would think of that??
Any thoughts on this??

I was in a multi-year committed relationship while still here on POF.
Enjoying the Forums was fun...and I made it VERY clear that I was not looking, not single, and not dating at that time.
Heck, there are people who meet, date, get married, and still enjoy chatting about relationships on POF Forums!

I only date one man at a time. Right now I am getting to know a wonderful man. I want to see how this relationship develops.

Is this a committed relationship? No. But I want to respect this new relationship by focusing on him.

I don't know I mean it could be a number of reasons for doing it. I think they could be keeping options open or they simple don't bother deleting and either leave it alone or like I said keep options open.

From my profile, the Headline/Intent/Marital Status/For/About Me/First Date and something from my Interests list, make it very clear I'm in a relationship. My boyfriend and I are here for the Forums. LOL Now if I could just find a way to make everyone READ my profile BEFORE they send me a message! Yah, I know, good luck (to me) with that!

Well...my sweetie-pie enjoys following my posts in the forums, and no one can by-pass my filters to email me so being contacted by other singles is not a problem.

In most cases, that's it.

I am currently in a relationship, and have my profile hidden. I have not bothered to update my profile in any way, so forum posters will see it as single and looking, but I don't really care. When I do get the occasional message now, I politely decline.

I was with someone like that...kept his actively seeking a relationship on here even after I had moved in with him. His rationale....he files his taxes single therefore, he is single until he's married. Yeah....don't know what I was thinking! Anyway I didn't like it and ONE of the reasons I dumped him. Men or women who do that while in a relationship are just plain selfish and quite frankly deserve to be alone.

Why do you care what response they give you? Do you really feel the need to control the honesty of other people? Whether they say they are dating someone else or not interested in dating you the end result is the same: they don't want to date you. Just accept it and move on.

I am dating someone now, took my pics down so I dont get messages anymore. I enjoy reading an posting on forums as others do. Being active doesnt mean youre looking.
