No Strings

I hear this term a lot, usually found in the profiles of many men on this site, not so much in the female profiles. I am just not completely sure what it means. I would understnd that marriage would fall into that category, but whatelse does. Does that mean that no friendship can develop, does it mean anything that might be emotionally involved is not allowed to be involved? Does it mean we are only allowed to meet get naked and have sex then get dressed and leave with no conversation. I am just not sure what it means at all can someone please explain it to me. Maybe its something I can actually accept and I haven't been responding to these people because I thought no strings meant no respect. Am I wrong?

it has nothing to do with just means we don't want to have to explain ourselves to any do what you want and we do what we want.

I think its a get out of jail free card. If they meet you and don't have the guts to tell you that they don't like you, or are un-attracted to you, then they can just not call back, or ignore your messages because it was "no-strings attatched". At least thats how i'd view it.

To me I think there are allllways strings attatched, even if you never see each other again and there was very little conversation. I also think that people who say no strings are perhaps not seeking a real relationship. They may desire a fuck-buddy, but then there is the risk of the other person becoming attatched and that scares some people perhaps.

Dunno tho! Anyways, I did want to say ladylumpz i'd love to chat with you sometime...i'm on this buggered free account though, so can you message me and we can chat on msn (or on here) sometime?

As far as we've always known, the term "no strings" means that there is little to no emotional involvment. Not to say that friendship can never develop or anything like that, but just to be a warning (so to speak) that the person(s) invloved is not necessarily seeking a relationship of sorts.

Good question. I agree it could mean just about anything to anyone. To me it means, sex. A fuck buddy. No expectations for anything long-term or meaningful. Don't want to be your best friend, don't expect me to come running anytime you call, don't care about your problems and won't be a shoulder to cry on and I'm free to have sex with anyone else besides you. If you're horny give me a call and I will be there, otherwise don't expect anything more.

I'm not judging, this could work for some people and other's may find it very cold. I each his/her own.

I guess like so many things we (cause I am one) have chosen a short handle to describe what we are after.

Here is what I mean(want)
1. Someone who like me needs to get together with someone occassionally. The new face and excitement are the key.

2. Someone who comes to the situation not looking for a lifelong partener, but comming in with a we are here today attitude lets have some fun.

3. Someone to laugh with... this is preferably after talking not disrobing.

4. I don't need to meet your SO and you don't need to meet mine

What it dosen't mean to me is
1. A find fuck and forget (pardon the language) - this may have it's place, but is not what I am primarily after. I am a guy though so all you hotties that are into that just let me know =}
2. We can't talk about what got me/you down.
3. It has to end after n encounters...

Hmmm.... I thought that this would be lucid and enlightening, but I'm not entirely satisfied with it. This ring a bell with anyone?
