OK, I need to rage a little bit and figured this was the perfect place...
I'm in the process of sending in my info for that whole Confirmed ID crap cause I think it's nice that when someone looks at my profile they can actually say, "I know that this person is real". Not real from the standpoint of whether I act fake or not, but really real. Like that I actually exist. Some guy that's just trying to scam your e-mail address didn't create me in his spare time. Now the fact that I'm actually a paid member will probably tip people off to begin with, but I'm sick and tired of getting the same crap back in my e-mail box. It's rather tiring.
Now let me explain...
I'm not here just to score major ass and see how many people from AdultFriendFinder I can hook up with. That's not me. I'm cool with the whole "friend's w/ benefits thing" but the friend part is there too. I work a lot and it's tough to meet nice people, that's why I'm here.
What bugs the shit out of me is when I send someone a short message, something like this:
"Hi, I read your profile and you seem really cool. Check mine out and let me know what you think. BTW, I've paid so that even though you're a standard member you can read mine and send me e-mail.
That seems good right? Probably about 90% of those types of messages are returned with a message like this:
"HI! IT WAS SO NICE TO HEAR FROM YOU! I'M SO HORNY I CAN'T CONTAIN MYSELF AND THINK WE SHOULD HOOK UP SOON! SEND ME AN E-MAIL TO imgonnasellyouremailtoeveryoneIknow at hot mail dot com CAUSE I DONT PAY TO BE ON THIS SITE!
TALK TO YOU SOON! JENNY"
Now the handle of hte person sending the e-mail is something like DeborahISHOt or some shit like that. Yes, I agree that you might be protecting your identity or something, but it's really screwed up when your handle isn't close to your name when your handle has a name in it!
Also, I've paid so that standard members can send me mail for free. I'm really not interested in sending you e-mail to your personal account so that it can be sold and thus I end up with a million messages in my personal mail box like:
"want a bigger penis?" no, thanks, i like mine the way it is
"want hot sluts tonight?" no, thanks, I'm good
"cum see lola, she's only 12" ok, last time I checked... that shit was illegal, maybe not where you live, but definately where I live... lol
I guess this is going on forever, but I'm frustrated... not because I haven't received huge success on here yet, but because of the fact that there might be 100 profiles that match what I'm searching for in my area and of those 100 profiles, 90 of them are completely fake and a total waste of time.
Not that I think it should be totally required, but it might be nice for everyone to be required to show proof of identification to have a page. That way you know that who you're looking at on their profile and who you're talking to are actual people and not some made up profile to try and scam your address.
It's just a waste of time
