Have you ever been attracted to somebody because of what they post.Page 1 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
When I read an interesting post I do check the profile....Sometimes I think, oh he's cute...but I enjoy reading profiles and people's interests. Personally I'm not posting on forums for guys to check my profile....I just enjoy posting my opinion every now and again.

Absoluetly ... and I have gotten emails because a man was attracted to me after reading my posts. I can think of a couple of men who are posting that I would love to meet ... could fall for them in a New York Minute ... don't dare let them know though!

Hey, and aren't these posts the only 'food' one can chew on and chuckle ... add a bit of own mixture and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar (when necessary ) ... yes, 'food for thought' that in long run can make you feel even 'head over heel' ... and the 'food' is not enough suddenly.

Who doesn't love these charming avenues forums provide? Keep bouncing, keep being 'visible' and intruiging and spread good vibes

Definitely.
That's the way my favourites list has been created. Of course, they could remove themselves and that would be fine by me but I do hope that they also see from my posts that nothing attracts me more than their witty retorts, 'bon-mots' and 'food for thought' (because ladies are also on my favourites list).

Could this cyber attraction develop into something more meaningful? Surely it can ... if the 'tango is danced by '

Several of the people in my favourites list are people I have "met" through the forums who I might not have otherwise "met" simply by cruising profiles. The more I can learn about a person, the better I can make a decision about whether I am attracted and seeing what they write is a perfect way to see what the person is really about.

Since I've been posting in this forum, I have noticed that I am attracted to a couple of the guys. As others have previously said, profiles really don't cut it. Definitely find men more interesting and attractive after reading their points of view.. You really do see personalities shine in here...

Don't agree with that longte...I'm sure most of us signed up in POF for dating etc....isn't that what attracts a person to a dating site, not a forum. I didn't know there was a forum in POF until I started snooping around lol. Forum is fun, and great way to interact with people though. without going into a chat room.

As far as I've noticed on this forum site, most are looking for dates etc...At least that's how I've interpreted it...

I must admit that I do find profiles offer no great help in deciding if you would be interested in a person or not but as it has been touched on you do get a better idea about a person by their posts on the forums.

You can find out what people are passionate about, what they are against, their humour and surprisingly whether you would like to pusue a relationship with them as friends or a more deeper relationship.

I have been attracted to somebody that checked my profile out and then when I got into the forums I found some of their posts on various threads and thought I would like to meet them.

I did meet the lady but due to other factors we didn't really end up as a couple but we are still friends and I think this lady is well worth the time.

I think the meaning of attracted to somebody because of their posting on the forums is taken for granted as being looking for a romantic love meaning, where as I look at it as also meaning to converse with that person as in a friend as well.

I have made some good friends from reading other peoples postings and enjoying what they post.

I agree with Hilly to the point about what I find unattractive and some people have surprised me after having read their profiles. There they had seemed rather interesting. But then you never can tell until you meet in person and spend a lot of time with them.

The forums can give you an insite to what people are passionate about but that is about all.. Written text can be confusing and taken out of context.
