I know that we're all just a bunch of profile pics, posts, and comments, but there are a few people who, for whatever reason, I find incredibly intriguing. Of course they have no idea...I think. Is that weird? Does this happen to anybody else?
I think it is easier to be intrigued by someone when all you know of them is an electronic simulacrum. Knowing someone in reality means having to accept all of those bubble-popping aspects. "You’re lactose intolerant and you do WHAT? after inadvertently drinking milk?" When we only know a little about someone and then we wonder about them, we never wonder about the bad stuff - only the good. So it is much easier to find them intriguing.
I don't really do this with people on-line anymore - I started chatting online in high school so I learned early on that people on the other end are just people. But sometimes I find myself doing that with an author or an artist. I should know better but yet when their art moves me, I am intrigued by them as a person.
I find that in the less than 2 months I’ve been here I see and meet more people here who are a lot like me than I have in my lifetime. I really enjoy being in the groups as most are relatively small enough for members to learn a lot about each other. You also see their posts outside of the groups and want to check those out. Most people are easy-going and open-minded so it’s easy to like them.
Have not thought about it I guess. I have spent very little time looking at profiles. I have enjoyed reading and answering posts more than anything. Its just cool for me to hide away in here away from the religious nuts Im surrounded by and talk with people who make sense to me. Lol
There are people on here whose profile pics I look at and think 'hel-looo' (in a lascivious Carry On... voice), but I WON'T go looking at their profiles just in case they think I'm being creepy. ?
I know we're encouraged to check out profiles on here, but I do feel weird about it. Even so, I'm kind'a hoping I'll make friends on here eventually who I'll get to have longer chats with.
Whilst I am still reasonably active (for now anyway) ...and still have the full sum of moving parts, I don't expect at my age to be forming heaps of new relationships. But granted there are plenty of interesting folks out there, and life being a glorious string of surprises, I would never say never!
I'm not dating, but there are certainly some very interesting, delightful, and dare I use that word "intriguing " individuals on AGM.
Such an eclectic bunch too..
It's easy and very pleasant to meat so many likeminded people from all backgrounds too.
I often think though if I was dating ..it would be like planet hunting in the galaxy..trying to find that elusive planet in the "Goldielocks" area of a billion stars..???
There are a few on here I find very intriguing. It begins with a post or comment. If I like it, I will usually visit their profile and see some of their other posts and comments, not to mention their photos. This sometimes leads to more intrigue, and I will follow them. None of them are in my area except one or two, and I'm already friends with one of them.
