I keep getting emails... from women... wanting to make a love connection. I've had three so far. Have any of you gotten these types of emails.... maybe I should take my email out of my profile.
P.S - I have nothing against Lesbians... I'm just curious as to why they would be contacting me based off of my hubpage profile. Thanks!
Take your email out...I got some but I get lots of spam...I think my email is on a loo wall in Lagos.
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 get them alot. I wold guess they are spam and that the "women' aer nto readign anything on your profile.
Hi, Just take out your email I guess or if not just delete those letters. I think those are spam. Don't let it bother you or destroy your day.
HOW CAN I DELETE THIS....... this was taken the wrong way. Sorry to offend...
Thanks Misha... you are attractive too... to bad I'm married... I might ask you out
Not that it ever stopped anybody
j/k, don't take it personally
What, people don't think you joke anymore? You're getting too politically correct when you have to inform them you're joking.
lol... I have a great sense of humor Misha! I didn't take it personal!.... I may make a hub about our pending affair some day lol!
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 just read your profile, and it indicates the exact opposite, as far as I can tell.
Apart from that, I agree with Misha.
Thank you so much! I thought it was really clear too... it seemed so strange. One even said that hubpages was a dating site .... wow!
Do a Google search of your email address and of your profile.
Maybe someone has tacked that information somewhere where you don’t want it to be…
thank you! Yes someone mentioned that they saw my profile on a dating site ugh... let me go check!
well putting your email address is inviting unwanted attention.
I get hit on by lesbians all the time and I sure hell dont look like one.. same with you.
Some lesbos really cant help themselves I guess..
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 !
That thought occurred to me too.
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 do not know. Are lesbians and their writing suppose to look different or something?
I don't think so...I'm a lesbian and I don't bother anyone aside from the fact that I look, talk and write as normally as anybody else..
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.
now how does one write like straight or lesbian or gay?..even i wrote about gay/lesbian and their right to decide..But I am straight...
I've been trying to attract them lesbians to my mail.
I'm a lesbian trapped inside a man's body.
I don't understand what is wrong with being a lesbian, I am one.................
Okay... apparently I offended a few people. That was not my intention. Like I said, I asked a few of my Lesbian friends and they laughed and joke about me " writing and looking like a lesbian ".
I sincerely wanted to know why I was getting emails.... that's all.
How can I delete this thread so that I won't offend anyone further.
You're not offending anyone. It's plain funny and hilarious, that's all !
I wasnt offended..and I seriously think they are just spam.
they havent read a thing about HP if they are saying.."I saw you on hubpages dating site."
You said nothing wrong by asking if you look like a lesbian. I have many, many lesbian friends, my best friend is a lesbian.
She always complains about how she is so feminine and "straight looking" that other lesbians don't ask her out or don't believe she is a lesbian.
So yes, lesbians do "look" lesbian, and they talk about that between themselves all the time. Some just hate it when straights talk that way.
Double standard in reverse, like many things are. A group can say things between themselves, yet get offended if an outsider says the same thing.
My friend always talks about how she likes the sporty lesbians or feminine ones but is not into the butch ones.
And yes, in a way you have a feminine lesbian look, which is what most lesbians go for.
There, now they will leave you alone and attack me now!
A little bit, yes. write? I don't know yet, but you are pretty and funny.

I have received two unsolicited emails now from a hubber requesting me to send him my email address. I find it a bit creepy. I just deleted the first one. Should I ignore it or report it? I have had legitimate email contact from other which I have welcomed and responded to.

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 account under the same email address? Thanks.

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 on my profile page, and someone shows up who I am following, the message in blue...
