Thanks for sharing. I see that you are very opinionated. Here in the forums we can agree to disagree. I disagree with most of what you said and here is why.
You should feel flattered and just blow it off.
You have no right to tell another person how to feel-- those are her feelings to feel.
How long have you been on this site?
How many times has this happened to you?
What does these questions have to do with her situation? If it happened once that is one time to many.
instead you post this to a forum and make a major deal out of it.
What is wrong with her posting to the forum? @MercBrit responded to the topic "This Is Not a Dating Site!"
This issue is very real and the only way it is going to get better is through discussion and awareness.That is what the forums are for. To have conversations to encourage, be fair, polite, and transparent.
Had to be said-- with no apologies.
@Blueyss I'm curious:
Let's assume that you are heterosexual. How would someone of the same sex messaging you and telling you that you are hot, asking if you are single, and whether they can meet you alone?
Would you just feel flattered and blow it off?
Would you want to be told not to react and to just wait for the person to move on? Not to make a major deal of it, but to just let it until it will goes away, because it’s not like the person is stalking you?
Would you feel comfortable being told not to make a major deal out of it, and to get over yourself?
Most heterosexual men and women would be very uncomfortable in that situation, and would want the help and support from their community. And most women, regardless of their orientation, are similarly uncomfortable with uninvited sexual attention from men.
