Yep. I always read the profiles. How else would I know if there was a chance at making a contact? Still looking for that lady with the same desires as mine so we can chat some time. Seems its not easy for us older guys to hook up on here even though we still know how to please a lady:-)

I wonder why someone would NOT look at a profile when looking to make friends or even responding on the Forum.

every time, how are you to know anything about the other person if you don't read what they have taken time to write about

I do every time, I'm very particular about who I allow on my friends list and if their profile gives me a bad vibe or they give me a bad vibe I won't accept it. You can tell a lot about them by the things they post.

I look each and every time even when I get a friend request. I don't go by just their message alone even then.

Yes I always check the profiles, it's the same in the chat rooms, I always check the profile after the initial hello. It shows, I feel, that you are at least interested enough to find out something about them. I can't see the point in chatting to someone, or asking them to be your friend if you can't be bothered to look beyond the face pic . Like you said, we are not all here for the sex, but then again if we weren't here for at least a little bit of that, we wouldn't be here at all.

I allway read the profile. Well it would be rude not too thats why they have written something there in the first place. To filter out people that they maybe dont want on there friends list or to make sure they get the right people on it. The same as when somebody asks me to be a friend I will look at there profile.

I'm not sure about the last line, some of us just don't like those puzzle books.Whistle

If it's a simple 'Hi' then it gets rejected immediately. Unless the requester has bothered to make the effort to write something then I don't bother to even look at their profile. But in general I'd give their profile a look.

I always check the profile before I request them to be friends and before I accept their friends request

whoever wants to be my friend on here, I say yes. But if you send me an interesting introduction or a sexy fantasy, even better ;]

Every time. I would not ask to be a friend if I did not like what was on the profile book

I am like 95% good at reading profiles find it interesting. I think that is why I have a low count of friends. I just wish guys would put more or even put in a short bio on them selves. I said would never accept without some kind of bio but I have.

To post something in response on the Forums without seeing what the person your responding to has for interests, likes, what have you, to me is rude in the extreme. How can you know that they'll smile, giggle or even get 'interested' in your response without knowing such things.

To ask someone to be a friend without getting to know at least a little about them is also quite un-mannerly. Learn about the person at least a bit before making that connection.

To do otherwise, in my opinion, is to toss darts blindly and hope they hit the wheel, much less make a bullseye.

I recently purged the scant profiles from my Friends list. If you can't be bothered to at least put a little something in your profile then why should I friend you??? Some people and I never talk but I like them so they are on my list.
I simply can't add a person who says:Add me so I can fuck you with my big ass cock. Uhm...nope. But I will add:Hey I like what you said...or I like your stories or I like some of the things you like or we are friends with a lot of the same people etc...I am no prude but manners are essential wherever you are. I have learned the hard way here that I needed to be a lot more careful.

WHAT! WHY?
Why would anyone have more than two? I was going to say one but I'd make an allowance for a trans or c/d who may take on a different persona. Even in that case it should say on both profiles.
I assume this is for the purpose of the chatrooms and not the forums? It must be a lot of work if it was the forums trying to remember what you've posted and as who.
I have to stick with one, as everyone knows, I'd end up argueing with myself!

I know this sounds naive but I was genuinely surprised that people did this. How do you have the time or energy? Plus it is their fault when the black boxes are either slow or you get 8 of the same responses. But again. How do you have the time or energy?

Every time - I choose friends because I believe I will enjoy their company. I dont accept friends requests unless I have asked them first.

Always. It's one my hobbies - reading Lush profiles. I also enjoy reading their profile before I read their stories. (Makes the images more erotic😉)

I read everything, from bio to forum. I don't do add every one, if the person is interesting to me I accept.

I always do. I need to know if I have something in common with the person.

If you enjoy first time stories, read 'how I lost my virginity to Lara in a car right behind her boyfriends back,' in my story 'Lost Keys'

I don't add anyone until I know they've read my profile. My profile specifically states that I was them to send me a message first. Then I creep their profile.
