A question for those of you who have tried the online dating thing. I've been contacted by someone who hides their profile. I was able to see it with the first email but in the second one he says his profile is hidden and gives me his email address and phone number. I can't figure out how you would even do that. Maybe I'm missing something in the profile settings. But why would someone do this? There were probably 7 or 8 pictures. Why bother if you're going to hide it?

Well if they aren't willing to share than I'm not willing to care. Sounds a bit fishy to me. But that's just my honest opinion from previous experiences.

Oh I have to agree with ZoiesMommy on this one, if they're not willing to share their profile don't waste your time.

Yeah something just isn't right. And his screen name is 2fun4email. But he says he does the same work that I do and seemed to know alot about it. But I'm thinking did he research it? Would someone go that far? He was cute but I'm not calling him or emailing him outside of Match.

The fact that he hid his profile would be a huge red flag to me. I would move on.

aloha,
I would be wary about anyone who hides their profile. They probably don't want their soon to be ex spouse (LOL) see it. May because he/she hasn't told their spouse he/she is leaving or they are looking for something on the side.

aloha,

Grazi, I'll keep an eye out for that. Guess it's a good thing I updated my fl res weekday ap to include weekends. lol

As with everyone else I would run the other way. The other thing you can do is search his email address on Facebook(I used to do that all the time). Sometimes they make an email address just for dating sites but most cheaters aren't that smart.

Who are you kidding? This has nothing to do with my new toy. I've been this kinda 'special' for a LONG time.
