    Is it just me, but I do not get why some complete strangers are writing me letters/message often from another galaxy ( ok from another country, basically far away ) and they start a conversation asking what I am into and what I am looking for or what I am up to?

    My first thought is always what do you want from me and why are you writing to me ? seriously, why?

    probably they want skype sex
    How do you start a conversation and any thoughts?

    Speaking from my own experience its about trying to make new friends with people you may never have otherwise met through the conventional route however I do realise that actually not everyone wants to be messaged so I rarely bother now. Don't assume everyone just writes messages though to have skype (nude) interactions though because I know for a fact not everyone does.

    In addition I like talking to people far away because there's no pressure to meet and have sex because on dating sites like Pof etc people get nasty when you say you don't want to meet for sex/hooking up.

    I get those online love scammers too. They send those letters to everyone. I have responded to some and none have asked for anything directly but they're emails are identical to those sent to others. I did get a serious email, a bi guy looking for a discreet hook-up close by.

    I relate. I want to know WHY they are contacting me if they say they "like me" because I mostly post up a lot of controversial shit. Is it my picture I posted or is it what you read? If I don't have that information I have no time for this.

    Well...aren't all your friends and colleagues and acquaintances, at some point of time "strangers"?

    Similarly... But it's human nature to take the initiatives when we find something interesting or useful or it's just curiosity, etc.

    IDK
    maybe they're lonely--they read something or saw something in you and thought, hoped, they'd made a connection; hoped, you'd fill that desperate ravenous void in their life.
    or
    maybe they're just a board 13 year old boy/girl.

    Oh, so, it's just okay for you to get to know them by their opinions but not for them to get to know you. Well, that hardly seems fair.

    But, ya, I got it. Just playin'. I'm not real into most of the intercreeps but I have had a lot of fun with strangers, so I wouldn't write them all off. Some of them wound up moving in with us. One time in the Bahamas on one of my neighbors boats, some chick started partying with us and then hitched a ride back with us and wound up moving in with my neighbor's son for a while. She was fun.

    And my first bud and I, we were certifiably nuts together. We'd take one of the boats down to Lauderdale, get on the hailer and yell to some good lookin' (read: still breathing) tourists on any random seawall, "Hey (that's landlubber for ahoy!) wanna party?" and then we'd pull right up if we though we had the water or if we were just really fucked up or more often find a close dock to pick them up. Sometimes we'd part that day as still strangers though better known and sometimes they'd move in for a while. Met a lot of people; had a lot of fun.

    But this internetz is a little spooky. So I definitely get that. The real weird thing is how just because people read you they think they know you and some of them think they've got a relationship going. It's real bizarre. So I certainly understand hesitancy on approach.

    Approach with caution. Just because you've mistakenly thought I have revealed the cheese in the trap, doesn't mean I haven't set a bucket of water over the door.

    Yeah, I'm, like, totally interested in your escapades from 35 years ago...Tuesdays With Morrie, Part Duh...

    Also, we've heard about your two-year...your first ten-year, your second ten-year and your back-stabbing x-cousin an innumerably and insufferably amount of times....you're a fucking bore. Get some new material!

    The minute I read the OP, I knew he was from New York. Then I clicked on his profile and sure enough! Only a New Yorker would join a social site like this and ask "what do these people want from me?" icon_rolleyes.gif

    You are not missing anything. Usually just some online scammer, some closeted bi guy or other random horny guy, or someone lonely 1000 miles away. Let's be realistic, a date is not going to happen if you are in Florida and I am in Philly unless you are going to send your private jet for me icon_lol.gif.
