    Is this common, or am I just unlucky? The majority of the chat requests I get are like this.

    I have a profile on bigmusclebears.com. A couple of times a month a get email through there (which can be sent by non-members) saying, basically:

    "You're hot. Want to get together?"

    No picture, no information, no location, nothing.

    What are people thinking? They would never send mail or IM a person with no pics or info, why do they think they'll get a response?

    I'm baffled.

    I got a message like that a few months ago from a guy who claimed he was local.
    Something in my gut told me he was probably cute, so I said "come on over."
    Fortunately, I was right. icon_lol.gif

    But that's the only time I've ever even responded to a no-pic profile unless I knew them before they signed up.

    Even a headless torso would be an improvement. But like the stats, are people really too "discrete" to let anyone know their height?

    It's because they are either too hot or too ugly. More often though it's because they're too ugly.

    That's brave. He must have had other info in his profile, no? These guys I'm talking about have nothing.

    I met up with one guy a year ago over on that blue-colored site and his pics were all blurred and weird and I thought he must be some kind of famous or notorious, and it turns out he was the latter.

    Good time, though.

    Nope...completely blank profile...and had just joined.
    I could tell by his style of writing that he was authentic.

    I simply keep my IMs turned off. I would receive IMs that mostly degraded into requests to cyber, either by talking dirty to them, or answering their intimate questions about myself. If anyone I know wants to IM me they can e-mail me while I'm online, I usually see my e-mail pretty quickly, and I'll turn IMs on for them.

    I usually ignore these messages...if you have balls enough to get on the site and set up a profile at least upload a pic of your body!

    See, you get those because you're an irresistible fox bear. They probably don't have time to create a profile before they're tripping over themselves emailing you.

    There was a period of a few days where I got them all the time, and then it suddenly stopped.

    I think it's crazy, but it must work or it wouldn't happen so much. My guess is that they carpet bomb 20+ members at a time hoping for a bite.

    I'm not fussed, really. Depends on how engaging they are (if it's IM anyway). Reminds me of how the internet was back in the dark ages, when I was at uni. Rarely did you see a pic unless someone had quite "advanced" skills and could email you one. And they were usually American. This was when the internet was largely confined to universities and offices in the UK.

    What bugs me more is monosyllabic morons.

    Like, "Hi, you're hot".

    "Thanks, how you doing?"

    "Fine".

    "What you up to?"

    "Not much".

    *close IM*

    Hate that. Impatient, yes, but Christ if you want to have a chat, don't expect me to do all the work until you've made an effort to warm me up a bit. Rest assured, once you've got me in flow, you'll be wishing I'd shut up.
