The only married person was Otis, and he stayed drunk. <br><br> 'Happy Holidays'!

Why shuld I give you my phone number?   10/27/2004

It is just a thought, but why should I give you my phone number? I don't know you. My telephone is a private thing. your calling me without me knowing you is an invasion of my privacy. Why can't I first get to know you somewhat and when I feel comfortable, I can then give you my number that opens the door to my private life. And then what if you abuse it? You have abused my friendship, ...

young man/older woman   9/1/2004

I am a youngman and I am interested to date older women. Call it a fetish, but I really think that older women has a lot to offer compare to younger women. Here's a few : 1. OLDER WOMEN MORE CONFIDENT - THEY KNOW WHAT THEY WANT, WHETHER IT'S SEX OR COMPANIONSHIP. 2. OLDER WOMEN ARE FINANCIALLY STABLE - THEY DON'T DEPEND ON A MAN TO PAY FOR THEM, THAT MEANS THEY ARE ...

You think you connect...then he/she real?   8/21/2004

This is really a dilemna in today's world. So many people try to pass as someone they aren't for various reasons. Some are in bad marriages and want a fling. Some have agendas more attached to financial issues. It doesn't matter what the ultimate reason...what matters is our own security. Obviously all of us know that not posting a picture is a flag. There are good reasons for no ...

Reply to Dating Safety Tips   8/11/2004

While I understand the reasoning about being suspicious if someone will only give you their cell phone number, not a home number and that they could be hiding something at home, as a mate, etc. - I must say that some people, me included, have only a cell phone. (Several of my friends have only a cell phone also.) I have used only a cell phone for more than two years for my personal and ...

Reply - Small dinner party   8/11/2004

The problem that I see with hosting a small dinner party, which I presume would be in your home in order to meet the new person with the safety of others around, is that the person whom you have never met now knows exactly where you live. He/she may be someone that you won't want to have that information once you have met them. So I would have to say it is something that I would not do ...

Ref HappyTrail35   7/9/2004

I understand what you are saying about safety and should you take a cab and keep your car hidden. It seems to me like you are really paranoid (only my opinion) about meeting someone for the first time. In these times maybe that's not a bad thing but I really do think you are carrying this a little too far. <br> For the most part the man/woman you meet will be just as cautious ...

Better safe than sorry   6/13/2004

Putting your best foot forward on a first date is usually done. However, in the case of SFF members, perhaps it is safer to walk as if your feet are walking on egg shells. Taking it slow, steady and playing it out always is the best method to develop a relationship. No one shows their frailities until you know them for awhile. I wish you all peace.

Forget the coffee shops indeed!!!   5/20/2004

Most of the old English mystery shows portrayed the villian in some dark, foggy park....lurking in search of his next unsuspecting lady. Common sense tells us that a well- it, populated shop would be far safer than an isolated area where one is neither sure of the escape route nor sure of whom she is meeting. Better safe than sorry.

dial star 67 to block phone IDs   3/31/2004

When you decide to make phone contact for the first time remember by dialing “star 67” before dialing your phone number you block your name from the caller ID. I prefer to keep as much as I can private until I can feel safe with the person. A cell phone is a good first bet for beginning phone conversations. The cell number is easily changed if necessary.

Why are there so few unattached men on SFF?   3/28/2004

After reading through dozens of matches of Cupid's SFF, I have thought that my request not to be paired with MARRIED MEN is being ignored. Perhaps there are not enough single men on the site to give the volume necessary to maintain the interest of the women. My theory is "better quality over quantity" Please refine the Cupid's software to match clients with the single preferences ...

Be the tortoise, not the hare   3/20/2004

Experienced uses of chat and internet dating have learned, albeit with some mishaps, the importance of being patient, and not rushing into something. Giving out your personal email, phone number, address to someone you have just met will only endanger, not enhance your meeting with the stranger. If there is truly something positive to develop between two people, maybe we should all tread ...

Alice in Wonderland   3/20/2004

Why do some men seem like the rabbit in "Alice in Wonderland"? They are in such a hurry to meet, that they never inquire as to distance of travel, or even to get to know you before offering to meet in person. Several emails and phone conversations provide an excellent opportunity for both parties to hear things that they might like or dislike. Also, men should realize that women do not ...

That pitter patter of the heart on first talking to someone who seems interesting. The first conversation is so easy. That second phone call and you are hearing some disturbing things. Then the person says " why won't you meet me in a public place at least" The answer is; if you cannot engage in several conversations to see if there are mutual interests, etc., then what is the purpose ...

Be Wise Be Cautious   2/4/2004

Ladies, let the men know you are a cautious person and you will feel safe about meeting them if you chat online for awhile to try to get to know them. If a man is not understanding of your right to privacy it's time to move on. Ask them how they would feel if their Daughter gave her phone number or email address to ANY Tom, Dick or Harry???

A guys perspective   7/13/2003

All of the articles in this category are absolutely correct. If the man that you are exchanging emails with is in a hurry, then he probably isn’t for you. A true gentleman will always think first of a ladies feelings and safety before his own. Always meet in a public place for coffee or such. The time might vary depending on how far apart you live. During the week it would be safe to ...

how can I contact a person 0 miles away?   3/27/2003

I know SFF prefers to keep this safe but I can't seem to contact even a person in my home town. I suspect my e-mail is being blanked out when I decide to give it. Am I using this service wrong or have I just wasted my money. How do I contact someone in my town on SFF?
