It was not my intention to come across as nasty but I call it like I see it.
I didn't say I was implying things as a general statement (other than the winks because I did say WINKS are lazy), I was implying them to your actions (that said, they are the actions of many and I would say the same thing to anyone who said what
I rarely bother to look at the profile if I am sent a wink.
Your not very good at apologies are you? You sound like a reasonably intelligent woman. So the difference between I am sorry you are offended, and I am sorry I offended you are very different, no? Since you chose the former, it only tells me that you are not sorry for offending me, which pretty much is a wasted attempt at apologizing. If you don't mean it, don't even bother. I can jump to my own conclusions about you from that lame attempt of an apology. Unlike you I wont write it because I do not enjoy offending people and I actually care about what others think of me in this world.
Actually, I am fine at apologies.
You are right about one thing.
Well, I was going to put my extremely profound views on winks and such forward on this post, but now I'm a bit trepidatious.
Oh, and I've made up that word. Fearless I am. I'm supposed to use "with trepidation" but it doesn't sound as fun as my fabricated word.
No one will ever agree with everything here. I don't like winks either. I get to thinking that the guy who's winked me isn't really into me, just trolling around a bit, passing time. I overanalyze, though.
But the other thing about winks--and I may be wrong--is that non-paying members can wink, but they can't write and they can't check their e-mail. So that may be another reason women don't go for the winky, winky.
The OLD thing is supposed to be fun, not cause angst. It's good to change things around if something you're trying isn't working.
Just my polite attempt to help.
Winks say you are kind of interested but not really.
