i don't think you look like a lesbian from your pic. as far as your writing goes, i can't say i ever read your work, so i wouldn't know anything about that. sorry. i wouldn't take it too seriously. if they ask you out through e-mails, then just e-mail them back to let them know your straight. if they continue to harass you after that, then report it to the hubpages staff immediately, with a copy of the e-mail, so they can take action against the people bothering you.
I wouldn't let it bother you. if it makes you feel better, gay guys in real life always assume I'm gay and try to hit on me at work. Just because I always have a nothing but business attitude and don't flirt with any of the girls there because I'd rather focus on my job. Thus, i'm always having to tell them that I'm freaking straight. most of them understand once I tell them, but there was this one guy once that didn't. Boy, did he ever used to p*** me off, as he kept asking me crap like "have I ever thought about being with another man?" I would always answer no. However, that didn't stop him, as he kept saying he couldn't help how he was born, and I turned it around on him saying "I can't help that I'm born freaking straight, so please stop hitting on me or else I'm going to report you to management." of course, he ended up spreading rumors at the store I was working at, saying i was a jerk to him and yada, yada yada, and suddenly i'm the bad guy...
yeah, i feel like charlie brown sometimes, as i just can't win in life...AAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH! Sorry, i had to have a charlie brown moment there.
I don't know about looking like a lesbian but...I'd definitely recommend taking your email address off your profile. Spammers can scrape it, meaning you could get put on a lot of spam lists. Just write a note to use the contact button under your profile picture.
I never had this problem before joining hubpages....my email is on other places around the web but I never once got approached by women. I hope that someone has not snatched my picture and email, to post elsewhere....
..ahemmmm....gotta make a comment....what does a lesbian look like?....not trying to cause trouble, but there are many g/l members of HP...just want to bring it to your attention....this is for whoever needs my comment drawn to their attention.
That's why I said I DON't have a problem with Lesbians.
I'm trying to figure out why I'm getting emails from them, since I joined Hubpages. I'm not trying to offend anyone. I'm glad I posted this because it seems that someone may be using my picture and profile on a dating site.
I'm fully aware that there are all types of people at HP. I love all people, and for anyone who reads this, I'm a straight woman with Lesbian friends who laughed when I told them about this. They told me that I look like a lesbian lol!
If you got only 3 e-mails from lesbians so far, as you stated, and you think you're on a dating site... then, you're not very attractive to them. You should get hundreds of them on a lesbian dating site, if by chance they find you attractive. He he !
See... now, that's why I don't post my picture - I don't want any Lesbians contacting me for a date. (What I tend to get in my e.mails from the "contact Lisa" thing on the profile are those "Hello, dear" and "Dearest friend" scam-things from some other country. )
I don't know, that's why I asked.... It was not intended to offend anyone and I made that clear above. I just wanted to know why women were contacting me saying that they saw me on a hubpages dating site( maybe I should have kept it at that).... I'm not attacking lesbians... my lesbian friends thought it was funny... sorry.
I was hoping to open a second Hub Pages account for "other" writings. I have tried to do this, but getting a message that I need to use a different email account. Is there any way to open a second Hub Pages...
It would be delightful if there was an easier way to contact some of the Hubbers. I have not done that often, since transferring from Squidoo, however - each time I wished to, I had to remember how to do it. When I am...
