What Does a Wink mean to you?


I've received a great number of winks since AdultFriendFinder has launched the feature and in turn have sent out my share of winks. As I sent one out today I wondered, what does it mean to a person when they get a wink? In my case, I think a wink is a way to show a member that you've read their profile and find them interesting. It is a simple and non-pushy way of saying hi. When I receive a wink from a member, I take it the same way. Should I share an interest I will either return the wink or will send a mail. Does anyone have any opinions on what a wink means to them and what "wink protocol" should be? I'm just curious.

To me, it means there is genuine interest there. However, the last wink we got was from a couple that didn't want any "heavy" people, when it clearly states in our profile that we both are "heavy".

Go figure...

I've had several, and I think you said it: "I think a wink is a way to show a member that you've read their profile and find them interesting. It is a simple and non-pushy way of saying hi." Standard members can't initiate contact, but they can send winks. That's what they use to get your attention. Then, esp. if you're a silver or gold member you can contact them back with an email. That's how I do it.

With the male to female ratio so out of whack on here it's best to answer any wink you get. Hope this helps.

it is my understanding that a standard member cannot send an e-mail until an e-mail has first been sent by them to you.... so if it a standard member who winked, that is the only way they can make contact with you. Your next step would be to send them an e-mail, so that they would be able to reply to your e-mail.
if it is a paying member who winked then i have no idea.
good luck

I have to agree with rockme1942... a wink is a way to say hi, I'm interested...let me know if its mutual by a return wink or email. I don't think its a way to tell you that they were just checking you out..the "who's viewing me" tell us that. I love winks and always return them and email if I can. So, wink to you all! lol
