Someone asked me privately why I was
A) following so many people so quickly after joining agnostic and
B) why the vast majority, by some margin, of those I’m following are women, particularly women who state that they’re open to meeting men
Well; A) because I like to get as big a picture of what and whom I’m joining as quickly as possible, so rapidly sought out those I thought I had the most in common with;
And B) because I’ve always related more strongly to the female psyche than the male, since I was a child. I am aware that one of the aims of agnostic is as a potential dating site, one of the reasons I joined. And I use the match ratings for that, but, importantly, mostly as a means of identifying those whom I might have the most in common with. It’s definitely not because, as was mentioned, I appear to be a bit of a predator. I’m not daft - the vast majority of the people I’m following live too far away from me, often by some distance, for dating to be practical from a logistics viewpoint. Even the most determined predator would be hard pressed! I’m in conversation with only three people, and the other party started one of those. And that’s as much as I can cope with.
Sorry if this sounds overly sensitive and defensive, but I’d be mortified if others were thinking the same as the person who brought it up with me (very diplomatically, I must say).
That’s it. X
