Wow! I was just making an innocent introduction so i can access the site well and i'm being put off already. Tanx.
Your user ID and the fact your intro consisted of not much more than "It's taken me 2 years and all I really want to say is that I'm lonely, female, and single". And you wonder why people here went in a certain direction with their responses? :)

I can't help agreeing with Adrian on this one. Had you been 'genuinely' new, I would have thought the guys (and gals) were a bit rough on you, but before you posted your first post, you had plenty of time to check out the Forum and get an idea of the sort of questions and replies generally that come up on here.

You don't sound shy and retiring to me and your User Name alone is enough to catch everyone's eye (and imagination) which was, I presume, the reason it was chosen.
We can't have it both ways. Hope the storm calms soon and you can enjoy the benefits of the Forum.

The EF is a lot like being in a crowded bar or gathering. If you introduce your self by stating to everyone youre single "Hi Im looking for friends..... and Im single" thats a bit weird. Kind of classless. So if youre not a Russian slut looking for good man, sorry......

"Wait a minute! Just because I introduce myself this way does not make me a whore!" Which is true. Gentlemen, that is true. Just because they introduce themselves a certain way doesn't mean they are a certain way. Don't ever forget it. But ladies, you must understand that is ***** CONFUSING! It just is.
Now that would be like me, an old man, walking into the party introducing myself as a doctor. Somebody might run up on me, saying, 'Oh, thank God. doctor, help us! Come on. he's having a heart attack over here. Help us!'

'OH-H0H!!! Just because I introduced myself this way does not make me a medical doctor! I have a Phd in fish-breeding."

All right, lady, fine. But you are introducing yourself like a Russian "mail order bride" as terryhall alluded to.

Welcome to the EF.

Exactly.

I find it frustrating when people join and say they are looking for friends but don't say anything about themselves. As I mentioned in another introductions thread: How would you feel if a total stranger came up to you in the street and just said "I wan't to be your friend"? I think most people would be suspicious or run away.

I have to question the state of some of our forum members minds.

These are perfectly innocent words, but seemed to have fed a few twisted theories.

you could be right on questioning our minds,

BUT:

the initial Post is a Little bit too craigslist, if you ask me. We've all been in this forum long enough to notice (and overreact sometimes) to weird posts. She could have .. you know.. LOL'ED.

I've never closed an Intro before, but this one needs cooling down time.
