    The point of this forum is to seek dating advice of the other gender while still keeping to the general Posting Rules and Posting Guidelines posted at the top of any forum. While any gender may respond, it hasn’t been limited to the specific targeted gender and it would be courteous to respect who the questions are aimed at. Do be advised that constant non contributory replies in this limited reply forum, will not be tolerated, and if you are found to be doing so, your posting privileges may be subject to daily limits, suspensions or outright revocation. The rules and guidelines are no different elsewhere on the POF forum - they are simply expanded on here, to give examples to new posters.


    A viable thread consists of you posting a topic or question that "you" have an opinion on, or state a position on, by which the subject of your thread can be discussed or debated back and forth. Surveys, Polls, Lists (eg. Favourite this or that) have no potential value for a back and forth dialogue and should be avoided. Warning threads about other posters will see your posting privileges removed immediately as this constitutes libel and you or the site could be legally held accountable - no questions asked.

    Special Note

    If your thread needs more in depth responses please post it in one of the other appropriate forums:

    Profile Reviews
    Dating and Love Advice
    Relationship Issues
    Dating and Love Advice
    Sex and Sexuality Issues
