Do you allow other to see that you viewed their profile? And if so, why?

    Since there are a few other threads about hotlists, and then the see who viewed me list -I figured I would take it a step further and ask another question..

    Do you allow other to see that you viewed their profile? And if so, why?

    For me, I am a bit of an extrovert and I like to be visible, so I do.
    How about you?????????????????????

    I recently nixed that ability on RJ. I am constantly reading people's profiles, sometimes re-reading some. I don't want people to think I am a stalker. icon_lol.gif

    I didn't realize that could be altered ... I assumed you could always see who has checked out your profile.

    Hi Eric
    As you can see, I have read your profile several times.

    I have no problem allowing to guys to see that I have viewed their profile and hot listed them either.

    I kind of like knowing who's been looking at my profile, so I figure turn about is fair play and let people know I've been looking at theirs....

    ...which could easily be restated as a game of "doctor" if I were feeling more punchy.

    sooooo.....if you want to look at someone's profile without him knowing (pussy), you just turn off that functionality for a look, then turn it back on if you're OK with it otherwise?

    All I'm doing is reading a public profile, not standing outside their bedroom window with binoculars. I assume the same of those viewing mine.

    Sure, I'm happy for people to see I'm viewing their profile, just as I appreciate them viewing my profile.

    I really don't care if someone sees that I've looked at their profile, that's what it's there for.

    Simple.

    If a hot guy looks at my profile, and I see he has, it makes my day. I can say "dayum, I'm an attractive man. look at the hot man that viewed me"

    If I'm gonna get that boost, hopefully I can do the same for someone else.

    anticipating a ridiculous flurry of "improve your self-esteem" related posts....

    I don't see why not.

    Although once in a while (not so much on this site) there are some weird responses. (And I don't really spend very much time trolling through profiles.)

    "I don't want anyone over 30 looking at my profile" *BLOCK* Um... can't always tell how old someone is until you've looked at their profile.

    "I don't want anyone I don't know looking at my profile." Huh???

    A few times, I've even clicked on a profile that I'm sure I'd never seen before and got a message saying that I had been blocked. WTF? Preemptive blocking!

    I think it's like mosquitoes... the real pervs are probably running silent.
