Have you ever read a profile and thought to your self "that was interesting she/he would be fun to be a friend". So being a little naive you send friends request.

Since i am married i tend not to want to offend someone so i will most often sent a request before sending a message. I figure that if you are not interest you will not reply-or you will send a nasty email. If you are interested you will read my profile, and add me or send a reply.

I am alway flatter and a little surprised when someone adds me as a friend--and I alway thank them. On the other hand, I have many times when I send a message to someone thanking them but never get a reply. Why is that? When someone sends me a wink or a friends request the first thing I do is read the profile. Why would anyone add someone without reading the profile 1st-and if you add someone to your friends list-- why would you not reply? If you made a mistake and added someone by error--just delete them! Any thoughts on this--or am I simply blowing hot air

Personally I don't accept anyone I don't know. If we've talked thru the forums or blogs for awhile then yes but a stranger? Nope

I don't think being married is an issue. But I get the impression that you are sending the friends request far too early in the process. Instead, I would suggest writing an email to the person mentioning the points of commonality in interests and perspectives that you detect in their profile. Just a simple, polite email is sufficient.

I cannot speak to the forums as they are not my cup of tea, but blogging is. Comment on the blogs. Also, go into the blogs posted by the person of interest and make a comment. Not only do you establish communication, you demonstrate enough interest and diligence to show you are sincere. Women appreciate that.

You must always allow that you are a married man and many women are very conditioned by the unappealing messages that they have received from married men in the past. Good luck.

I agree with Lisa....If i see a blog that interests me, I'll comment, and maybe from there, get to know someone. But I won't automatically accept a friends request. And what WoW said, goes too!! Listen to him...he's a smart man!

I agree with the bit from WOW,
some women are so used to being hit on by married guys running around behind their partners backs,they give all married guys a wide berth,or sometimes they are worried that they may attract a nasty mail from their partners warning them off if they are insecure about their relationship and if thats the case then maybe this isn't the place for them.
I am always open about the fact I'm married,the friends I have that are female are cool with that,just cos you want to be friends doesn't automatically mean you want to race them off to bed..well not all the time.
