I came across a profile that I have seen a number of times but I finally decided to read it. Now I know why I never read it before.


The profile status was:
Not Single/Not Looking. Not interested in a romantic relationship, just genuine friendship!




What would be the purpose of being on a dating website if you're not looking to at least go out on a date at the very least? I thought Facebook and Myspace and even Meetup were for people looking for "genuine friends"

Just curious......

LMAO!!! That's funny. I agree with you... if you aren't looking for a date, then why sign up on a dating website. What a hoot!

Well, they're apparently not too concerned with an honest 'genuine friendship'.

This may explain why he/she has no friends or a date.

Maybe she was there and found someone who she is currently dating? I don't know how those dating sites work, but would you normally cancel your account if you started seeing someone?

Gosh, don't you know anything about girls?! They say one thing but that doesn't mean they really mean it.

Go watch Hitch.

Rondot, did you ask them on that site?

Maybe they were just looking for like minds to be friends with, or already had friend there, or were keeping tabs on someone they knew? Worked with? Spying? Too much time on their hands?

Funny - ha, ha! & Funny - oddball!

Let us know what happens.

I dated a girl who had a profile like that. She ended up breaking up with me and dating some random guy off the site. Then she broke up with that guy and dated some other guy from the site later on. I don't see many people making friends off dating sites, so maybe she's looking for "something better".
