Figuring things out...

Someone explain to me why other standard members are winking at me, also a standard member. What am I supposed to do with that? Feel proud that I just got cyber-flirted with? Seems a tad silly to me since I can't even view their profiles.

I guess it proves they have a sense of humor.

Hi! Maybe it just makes them feel better that they did something!

Hey Lostlady,
I will venture out and take a shot at this.....perhaps they send you a wink hoping that you will be enticed and thrilled beyond anything you have ever experienced and will choose to upgrade so that you can bring some sunshine into their lives.
I could be wrong ~laughing~

Friendsforyou72 ~ Perhaps. But futile acts seem a bit meaningless in my opinion. Thanks for the comment!

Wuntn_u ~ Then they certainly have more hope than brains. Thanks!

Garysmithnm ~ I don't really see it as much of a tease. I see it more as an act of desperation. Thanks!

Agreed. Not much you can do as a standard member, but as a newbie, I've made that mistake just trying to figure this site out.

Well one can look for clues as to how to contact them. Sometimes thier handle is part of a screen name on a major service. Try this clue epa100 at the hoo Maybe we can chat more?

PhillipMcCracken ~ What boggles me is that I get winks from gold and silver member, too. They can write me, they've paid for that right. I don't understand what winking at me serves that a nice note would not much more effectively. Thanks for the comment!

mark156 ~ Sure, they can be sneaky and slip their e-mail address across, but if I don't know anything at all about them what do think inclines me to respond? Trust me when I say that I don't sit around staring at the walls trying to figure out something to do. I'm not hard up or bored. Interest catching is the main point. Thanks!

I am with you 100%. Why wink if you contact them or engage them. If you could engage them, we are back to the 1 syllable word thing anyway so.......
Did I tell you that you can contact me so we can chat, anytime.

Badboy ~ The number of winks has been increasing all day. It must not be showing up that I'm a poor standard member. Thanks!

IF I wink at you, you can reply that is why I bought that little additional piece of the gold membership.
Thanks for the earlier e-mail and yes we are oh so similar, like I said a female version. Bye!

You can view profiles as a standard member if enough people look at your profile. I sent a lot of winks hoping to get views so I could then view profiles and contact them normally. Not sure if it will work or not, but that's my plan.
