Posters' Personals Confidential
Posters’ Personals Confidential
Here’s my idea: people post their personals type ad, and fellow posters discuss how to make it better, how to find that “tall dark handsome stranger in a cowboy hat,” etc. So, I envision this blog doing two things: posting personals; improving that search for your match. Whether a romance, someone you can ride horses with, or a friendship, post your personal here.
I’ve mentioned this blog was coming for a couple of weeks. Some warnings/disclaimers are at the bottom. I hope we can have fun and treat each other with kindness and respect. A few of the very grumpy LJWorld posters have said that blogs are often just “lonely hearts club” activities. So, with a big laugh at them, I thought we’d really do that!
*Post your personal as “X Seeking Y” at the top, i.e. “Conservative Woman seeks liberal man for steamy relationship.” Then describe who you’re looking for, and yourself. Do it all within one 3000-character post.
Describe yourself, but avoid personally identifiable traits like “I’m the guy who always sits at the last table to the left in Louise’s West.”
No pictures please, let’s use words for this.
Use the LJWorld’s private message system to make contact so no phone numbers, addresses, etc.
Remember people may not always be who they seem to be on the Internet.
If you are uncertain about contacting someone or responding to someone who writes you, talk about it with somebody you trust.
If you arrange a first meeting, do it in a safe public place like a restaurant, park, the law enforcement center [lol], or a bar. Please be careful and no one else is liable.
Never ever put up with verbal, physical, or sexual violence toward you or another.
*Only adults should participate.
