Testimonials


OK... how do you get your testimonials? Do you ever request those you have met to leave one, or is it somehow tacky to ask? I now have 2 (though I think I got one hidden) on my profile, one from a guy in Germany, another at least in the same state but still too far. Both i've never met and probably never will. (Though them leaving testimonials did reinforce my notice of them, once I realized they were there).

The 3 people i've met in person have never left testimonials. (the one of you who reads my blog: i'm not complaining you don't have to leave one. *hugs*).

Reading other ppl's profiles, and reading complaints on blogs, This seems to be a common occurance. Most testimonials are of the "Very nice person, wish to meet him/her" variety. I have seen a few "Met him/her. Great sex. Highly recommended" types (by blog comments i've read: mostly not appreciated by other women). Surely there is a medium ground out there somewhere? Just something that says, "This person is real."

heh... now, all that being said... I'm going to go leave testimonial on a certain couple-friends profile... "Great People... wish to meet them." (Though I swear the female half is my long-lost twin. We've so much in common... it's uncanny).

What an interesting question. Perhaps a testimonial is simply a 'strong signal' of attraction, rapport, intent or experience, and these are very different from each other.

Thought-provoking.

When I first got here last March I browsed profiles quite a bit. I noticed that more than a few of them had testimonials written by the same "friend". This person simply cut and pasted his testimonial and sent it to everyone.

LMAO! After seeing this phenomenon several times I quickly came to the conclusion that they are not accurate indicators of how the person really is. Besides, who's gonna allow a testamonial that is negative anyway?

Many of my friends have written testamonials for me. I just keep them private.

And yes. I keep them private because each one disses a different aspect of my personality!

I have never written a testamonial for anyone else.

Shawna...thanks for the idea. I will also be posting this in my blog!

Here goes...

OK, first of all, I believe this site (and I know that there is a slightly different twist in "blogland") is about meeting people and yes, perhaps sex is a part of that. There is so much spoken of being stood up or a potential friend not being the kind of person they make themselves out to be. In my mind, testimonials are proof that a person is real and is actually what they portray themselves to be.

I have written testimonials for people that I have physically met and had a good time with. I would not write a testimonial about someone I had a bad time with (and that has not happened yet). A few have written them for me.

Unfortunately, two of my best encounters were with people who are uncomfortable with writing testimonials. That is quite OK (sort of). I on the other hand, think it is a joke to write a testimonial for someone that you have not met!
