    I've just recently become single, as a lot of you know. So, as part of that I signed up for ManHunt... well, I re-signed up for the site as I got rid of my old account not long after I met Dave.

    I thought it might be fun to share anecdotes and observations about using hook-up/dating sites and apps. Could be something that happened as a result, could be things that you notice about guys on there, could be how people use it... pretty much anything.

    I'll start the ball rolling in a post below this topic thread. icon_biggrin.gif

    Manhunt Orientation Translation Matrix (for Vancouver):

    Bottom --> Yup, total bottom. And owning it!
    Bottom/Versatile --> Still a bottom, will pretend to have some top ability to snag a guy to fill his holes.
    Versatile --> Bottom, but open-minded.
    Top/Versatile --> Trickier. Could be a top that's only "oral" versatile, or "gets fucked in a blue moon". Or could be a bottom in waiting. A toss-up for interpretation.
    Top --> 50% chance true top, 50% chance bottom-in-waiting for the right guy.
    Oral Only --> Bottom that just wants to ease into it.
    JO Only --> Fooling himself icon_razz.gif

    Oh dear. This thread is just a loaded gun for me. Without going into a lot of detail, I wish I lived in a more dense city so that internet dating wasn't the only option I had for years.

    I had one guy on Grindr offer to let me live on his couch and share his heroin with me..

    "You wanna couch crash for a few days. We could turn trick together make some money. Im sure youd probably get more clients than me though lol ive gained a beer belly and i stopped buzzing my body hair. Dont even shave my face with a razor anymore lol."

    Some observations..
    - There are almost as many fakes on those apps as there are on this site.
    - Seems 80% of the guys on Scruff are partnered.
    - When a guy's profile says he likes "smooth guys", it's secret code for rice queen.
    - [+] in the profile handle means the guy is poz.
    - )'( in the profile handle means the guy is a bottom.
    - I've seen a few RJ guys on Scruff and Jackd.

    Funny story..
    A guy sent me a message and kept calling me sir. He was only 3 years younger than me. I played along. Eventually, he asked me if I had any leather boots. (Uh ohh, submissive boot licking leather kink was my next thought). I told him no (even though I do). He seemed bummed out. Never heard from him again. Kind of a shame. He was really cute and had a tight body. Well, assuming those were really his pics. icon_neutral.gif

    "Looking for friends" means "ask me to come over to suck on yo' penis"

    I was at dinner with a guy and he was talking about how he was working on his house and how he had tools laying around, and when he mentioned the table saw on his table I said
    "Am I going to lose some organs tonight? I better not wake up tomorrow in a bathtub full of ice missing my kidney"
    damn I'm terrible lmao

    A guy who is into forced domestic chores contacts me every now and then. I must admit I am tempted to get him over to do the washing up and clean the bathroom icon_lol.gif

    Grindr phrases and their translation:

    What are you looking for? --- I want you to come over now so I can bone you.
    I'm muscular, athletic and looking for the same. --- I'm a douche who won't give you the time of day.
    Got more pics? --- I'm a pic thief.
    Looking for friends only --- I have a boyfriend on the side but I'm not telling you that.
    Cute pic --- Not interested. If you chat with me any more, the block button is inevitable.
    No fats and femmes --- I forgot to add, also not into Asians, blacks, and everyone else that doesn't look like me. But I'm not putting that on my profile since guys will think I'm racist.

    Hehehe... OK, this has been re-classified into the dating/relationships forum. I was worried that it would get too risqué. Hopefully that means higher visibility. icon_cool.gif

    "I'll know when I see it."

    I was thrown into the internet dating world after a 15 year LTR ended over 4 years ago. Like many have said before on this site, lots of fakes and I’ve gotten pretty good at spotting them….or at least I thought.

    Late last year I had three encounters with three different attractive guys that all messaged me first. Each of them was completely different in style but all of them were essentially my type. Each of them asked me to meet them for coffee and each of them cancelled our “date” less than an hour before calling me “shallow” and “low”. Nothing I could have said or done would have warranted such a response. The third time this happened it occurred to me I might have been played by someone with an ax to grind or just someone who enjoys fucking with people. Long story short, with a little bit of research online I learned that two of these guys were in fact the same faker behind two separate sock accounts. I could not make a connection to the third but since they all shared the same M.O. I decided not to waste any more time and chalk it up to another lessoned learned in internet dating.
