    I just love when I see profiles on sites and phone apps like Grindr where guys say they are "Partnered" yet "looking for friends"...

    That seems pretty innocent at first but then you find out they have physical requirements for their "friends" and they seem to not be interested in friends that are not attractive or sexually compatible...

    I think 100% of the time I meet someone who is "Partnered" yet "looking for friends" its been BS and an attempt on their part to find someone to have on the side.

    I agree with meninlove. I am in a monogamous relationship and while I appreciate the eye candy on RJ, I'm not looking for anything more than friends.

    I don't know much about this "Grindr" thing- but can't you be "partnered" and have sex with others on the side? "open relationship"
    It's a bit vague.

    Agreed. icon_biggrin.gif

    BUT...
    There are some out there who are looking for hookups, especially when their profiles say 'open relationship.'
    Mmmhmmm....

    So in other words, OP responded to an ad, got ignored or rejected and is now butt hurt and jumping to conclusions. Sound about right? icon_rolleyes.gif

    I've made a lot of friends on some "notorious" sites. How? I let everyone know what I want in my profile (friends), and then set firm boundaries. People usually test those boundaries, and then you have to remind them of the boundaries (firmly.) They either respect it or ignore you. Either way works great. Sorry you haven't found that to be your experience. Why am I on those sites? Because it's where the people are. *shrug*
