Multiple AFF Profiles by the same person

Say why you believe someone has more than one profile on AdultFriendFinder.
To screen who is contacting them versus are they others who are similar
To see who is looking for one quality / feature over others
To collect pictures of people
To find out what a person says - do they use the same 'pickup line'
To hide themselves from some members while on-line with others
other - any other reason select this one - would be nice if there was a comment area so responders could add an option they beli

well aren't you Johnny-On-The-Spot?
First post and you just DIVE right in to the tough stuff...

I voted "other" because it depends on who the person is. All of them could be true. And then, perhaps, someone can't be "characterA" any longer, and they want to be "character B" instead... Or, how about someone needs to expel a little aggression or sarcasm and they can't do it under their current profile? Then again, maybe they've killed themselves off but want to return...that's happened before.
Or they've got a lot of time on their hands and they get a lot of joy from fooling people.
Who knows...anything goes.

Hi EroticaXTC,

Thank you for sharing. As you say, there are multiple reasons and likely some are simultaneously valid.

The one I've found that was really annoying was a guy with a female profile, female pics, and advertising to want a guy. This kind of basic dissembling goes far beyond the lattitude often found with respect to looks / physical dimensions...

Have fun

I have seen some men who have a profile as a man and a women, to get the benefits of a female profile.

The other reason I've seen for doing it is so they can continue to function here once a profile is "removed" for some reason.

If you want examples of this, research Papyrina's blog. She keeps getting banned for stuff that goes on in chat rooms, but wants to keep blogging.

maybe sometimes they just want to hide behind a fake profile cos they do not want any serious chatting that could lead to meeting up?

First of all thank you for the invite to respond.

I will talk about a friend first. He has a few profiles because he loves to write and all the profiles are quite humorous. I enjoy reading his blogs and profiles. And there are purely for laughs. But ... to my surprise he tells me some take the profiles seriously.

Also men pretend to be women on this site to attract and find Bi women. Of course men rarely think or write like a they are easily caught.

Now for me. I have a highly viewed profile. I love to take pictures, cam and have enjoyed learning about myself in the process. But in person I am quite shy and reserved .... so my profile and the amount of mail I received made it difficult to keep up with or even narrow the search. So I made a new profile. Not to fool.... but to have time to get to know someone before rushing out to have wild sex. Of course that didn't work and I ended up meeting someone from the heavenlylove105 profile. Because I am both me and heavenlylove105.

I chose the last one, if you could take the time to read [post 4biddenlove4us] and [blog Damn_Dilemma] maybe you might get more insight as to why I did it. Maybe it isn't to everyones taste but I was always me and still am me regardless of what some believe. Another good reason I found was, I got mail from the same people with the same chat up line on all of them I used and I do write profiles for people who ask me to write for them because they prefer my way of writing than their own. Nothing seriously wrong with that is there? Hope you get the answers you looking for!!

I know some women who have two profiles just to see what kind of responses portraying themselves one way will get vs the other. (Like playing passive vs aggressive) Others have two, one with almost no useful information, just to see what men are just responding to everything. They use the dummy profile to weed out the people who are using the shotgun approach to finding somebody.

Here's the rub...If you know or suspect someone has multiple profiles, and it's someone you've put trust in, that trust is shaken. Especially if you're not privy to the how's and why's. I've had more experiences with multiple profilers than I care to have had. In some instances, I don't know what to believe is true about the person(s). And that's sad if the person actually is worth knowing. It's also not very fair to those of us who are always what we have been, who share ourselves with the "real" and "fake" alike, to be duped, mislead, lied to, and even used. There's no way for us to truly know the intents when someone visits and interacts with us using multiple profiles. A lot of the time, we just get hurt.
