    I’ve actually been “unfriended” by guys on here because I don’t flirt enough. And I get asked for my phone number a lot so we can “help each other stay motivated.”

    Iv had this in the past "have you got facebook or another messaging service?" I'm like what's wrong with MFP, we are chatting right now?

    And they be like "oh y'know, it would be quicker to msg each other and easier to stay in touch"

    This is after exchanging a few pms, why the F would I start giving out my mobile phone number or FACEBOOK to a random stranger just cos he says that he also wants to drop a few pounds? And why does this random person want to cheer me on soooooo much in my weight loss journey that they actually need my home phone number? Actually weird people out there.

    So they can send the D pics.

    Oh the dirty *kitten* !! :astonished:

    Indeed! I think men/women need to both be more respectful of not being too scandalous. You can be cordial without being creepy. Some people (me) have delicate sensibilities and what could be nice discourse leaves one feeling gross. I shouldn't have to become a hard person just to get through life.

    I think these people arnt intrested in being cordial it's like they have thier fishing rod out and just keep sending messages hoping to get a catch and send thier weener pics.

    I'm almost 40. So no. But new to this site, the community part anyway. Just really interesting to observe.
    You're an attractive woman on the internet. It just doesn't matter. Kinda like when you try to explain to British guys that they are 100% in with that accent...no matter which particular British accent it is. Doesn't matter.

    Haha my son has a British accent. He's turning 18 and I'm scared lol. They're already coming out of the wood work.

    OP, you are stunning, I mean I’m not saying it’s okay I’m just saying I see why.

    Thanks doll :smiley: The funny thing is that no one talks to me or approaches me irl. *shruggie*

    Oh same! Not the phone number thing, although there's a few who have it. Once they realize I'm bored with their obvious attempts at flirting immediately in PMs, poof....they delete. It's happened so often that I even forget who they were and never realize they're gone.

    Same here. I think they’re doing me a favor by deleting themselves from my friend list.

    because its easier for someone to hide behind a avatar and a screen name and type things out rather than approach and get shot down ;)

    That's really sad, I'd like to get to know people.

    Well I can tell you from experience that if you use a cartoon image of an awkward teenage girl who writes erotic friend fiction as your profile photo you won't get propositioned on here :p

    Ditto an alpaca

    I only get fitness related friendship

    That's good! Literally no women have friended me, so that's why I think it's weird.

    I'd add you but you might not like my flirting

    I also flirt relentlessly with my friends, no regard to gender.....

    Ditto. I’m pretty sure have made a few gals uncomfortable :#

    Haha this is why we are friends. *butt slap *
