In the past few hours, I've received two emails via HP from male hubbers interested in dating. Neither has written a single hub, nor does either one have a pic. Are they just confused? Do they think HP is a dating site? Am I just so amazingly beautiful they can't control themselves? Are they just "chubby chasers"?
Oooo you sending me one LMAO. Be sure to attach pic in top right hand corner. Link to web cam page. What color socks you wear to bed. How much body hair you have. From a 0 for none to 10 for full on cave-man style. Hahaha.
OK, I've read the hub, I only have like four of the eight problems (I won't say which ones....) ... I promise, I don't have all of them ... now, will you PLEASE rescind that restraining order? Pretty please? ... wait,wait, wait ... put that scalpel back ... I'll be good, I promise ... YIKES!!!
I have a similar problem...not so much from hubbers here, but externally - people who find you on google through HP and email (unverified) via the site. Ridiculous stuff like, 'I find you hot, wanna talk on msn"! I just delete without another thought....! It's not even flattering....
As for within HP, I think we've all had our share of those shadowy, hubless characters who within an hour of joining want to date you! IGNORE is all I can say....!
I've wished many times that I was a lesbian so I wouldn't have to put up with men's crap. But I can't help it if I love men - hairy chests, rough hands, facial hair, beer guts...is it getting hot in here?? lol
Since I have been here I've had about 7 men write to me to talk about how they view my looks and not once regarded my husband. They don't acknowledge I am married even when I tell them. These are my followers and have many hubs.
habee, you are a lovely gal, and I don't see why they would be at all shy about asking you out, but I am shocked! I thought this was a site for gay dating and soft porn hubs - at least according to some of the emails I've had.
Yes, and phone numbers, too - right in the comments! I think some of those "lonely gals" would have charged a really high rate per minute to call them back though, LOL
Also I have had a couple of requests to write hubs of a very explicit nature. WAAAAY too explicit.
My goodness, ya write one lingerie hub and things get completely out of hand
Hang in there, my girl. You're not alone, and you can always report the swine!
I have never gotten a rude, crude or explicit email from an anonymous other on this site, not once in three years.
I don't want to receive any, I don't think I write in a manner that particularly encourages it, and I wouldn't perceive or present it as meaning I'm irresistable, but more the opposite, that I'm being disrespected... such correspondence would be an unacceptable intrusion.
If it did happen, I would look to my own behavior and see if in any way I was encouraging that kind of interaction via my presentation of self. And either way, if it's HubPages traceable, I would turn it in to HubStaff rather than deleting it but then talking about it in the forums.
Actually it's not about sex, it's about history, economics and abuse. Might want to give it a read.
And it did cross my mind after I posted that you might think I was referring to you specifically as you started the thread, but if you thought that, I'm sorry. my post wasn't directed at you but more just my opinion of the general situation as there has been a series of these type threads and none of the OPs keep the email and turn it in to HP.
I did read the hub, and I found it interesting and very informative. Oh, and I loved the video - funny!
Nah, I didn't take your comment personally. Most of my hubs are about animals, cooking, travel, health, and education. I was just joshing ya! I had read the hub about Dublin recently, and I thought you're the one who had written it. I went back to check, and I was right, so I thought I would tease you a little.
Your sexy honor...I am sadden that this man didn't show his love or appreciation to me by sending me emails. I haven't gotten a single one *takes out a tissue and cries a little* and...he hasn't sent any to you either..
Ive had a couple... from WOMEN! Not that I am against that, but I do like a well endowed man... This is of course, the emails telling me of my amazing Nigerian inheritance by a long lost family member... all I have to do is send them my bank details for transfer of x million dollars! Gee! hehehe
Hahahahaha you wouldn't believe it I just received one from a guy. Speak of the devil hey?
Extract: 'My name is seyiafara from the nigeria, I'm 20years old and I'm single and looking for a nice, loving, honest, humble and loving woman. I like swimming, dancing, music, meeting with some friends and good family is what I spend most of my time doing. . I need true love. I do not play and I'm not ready to play .... I also have poems in my spare time.'
Hmmm......? It seems like there are plenty of people who like to spam out messages for whatever reasons. When received, these things should be simply discarded to the trash barrel and not thought of again.
It is kinda ridiculous and pathetically sad at times, but with so many different ways to steal someone's identity and scammers who want your money....it's absurd.
Hey Habee, no biggie it's just a waste of space. Even your acknowledgment of it happen, is a side effect from these sad things. Why bother? Most people know to disregard them and don't bother responding to them.
Either way, hope you're doing well, as with everyone else here too.
Been watching the news coverage of flooding/mudslides etc. in So Cal and wondering if friends like Tony0724 are safe. ARE YOU SAFE?The Midwest and Northeast and Southeast have also had their share of extreme weather...
I have often wondered, I mean we can pretty much be anyone, that we wish to aspire to on Hubpages. Sometimes, you just get a feeling that although, there is a machoo or feminine avator and character, you are in essence...
I'm sorely disappointed in Hubpages right now. On Wed. night I stayed up until 3 AM helping a friend of mine join Hubpages. He already had Google Adsense so I thought I was starting him on a path to more...
