The Hook-up Index

Here's my new AdultFriendFinder product idea of the week: The Hookup Index.

Here's how it works: When you fill out your profile you're asked two questions. The first question is "Which of these statements most closely represents what you are looking for in a sex partner from AdultFriendFinder:

1. I am looking for a life partner
2. I am looking for a long-term relationship
3. I am looking to spend significant time over a period of months with a person I meet here.
4. I am looking to meet and date people, ideally more than once.
5. I am looking for a friend with benefits.
6. I am looking to pick up people.
7. I am looking for no-strings sex.
8. I am looking for anonymous sex.
9. I am looking for an instant hook-up.

You pick ONLY ONE of those choices.

Next, you are asked, for your prospective partner, what range of values (one to nine, inclusive) are acceptable for you?

If I was answering this, I would answer the first question with the number 4, and the second question as 3-7.

When you looked at my profile, you might see a display like this:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

That would tell you that I answered 4, and I am interested in meeting someone who answered between 3 and 7.

Nothing is perfect, especially not this (after all, I thought of it... how perfect could it be?). But I read two blogs today in just the last hour of people who were disappointed with what they were finding on AdultFriendFinder. This would at least show people in a graphical way whether or not they might be on the same page.

You could do the same thing with other categories... such as monogamy, multiple partners, cheating, safe sex, etc.

AdultFriendFinder, if you do this, I get two years free membership for thinking of the idea!

    Quoting BigGirlzRSweet:
    Interesting idea... I'm not sure it would really help the situation some men are in, though. I mean, it seems that many men are looking for the occasional hook up... fuck buddies, as it were. This is fine, but they lead you to believe they are looking for a friend with benefits... NOT the same thing. So, IF people are HONEST with what they choose on that scale, then it might work... but when have you known people to be HONEST on here? I know some are, but let's face it, some people don't post their real pic, some lie about their age, some lie about their body type, and so on... what's to keep a horny fella or gal from saying they are looking for something more regular when they are really just looking for NSA one night stands? They get what they want whether they tell the truth or lie, right?
People who are dishonest on here only hurt themselves. Ultimately, people find out that they're not being honest, and it just makes everyone miserable... In other words, all it does is delay the rejection to the point where they're face-to-face, when it hurts a lot more.

Then there are the people that are lying to themselves. Not much you can do about them.

At least with this system, one could say that they're looking for a quickie, but it could be with someone looking for a life partner.
