Today I received an email from an MM member telling me they know of the perfect match for me. Then supplied me with their email, and told me to write them. Initially I thought it is the person writing to me, and he is just giving me his personal email in hopes that I'll write back to him directly. But why would he need to do that if he can already email me through the site? Confused in Calgary! lol Would you email someone based on a recommendation from a stranger you know nothing about?

dbltwin...I wonder sometimes if I'm becoming accustomed to being alone...scary thought, because I wonder if there is a chance we can reach a point where we feel we don't want or need someone in our lives, therefore, remain single. TONstigmata...if I did that, they would have my email address. As thenewman states it is good to have some of the protection that sending emails thru MM provides. thenewman...you can say that again...about strange world & people! Winking me is not the best idea, because I tend to ignore them. Thanks for you 2 cents. AAidol...I'm with you...but friends haven't any idea what my type is. If they set me up and it doesn't work out, it is alway uncomfortable explaining to your friends, why you don't want to date their other friend! Pauline...yes good friends might try to do that, but this fellow is a complete stranger from MM, who lives across Canada from me.

I'd be pretty leery of it myself. I wouldn't trust any of my friends or relatives to set me up with anyone, because I don't really have any in-depth discussions with them on what I look for in a man, so they'd be clueless on what "my type" is. Maybe someone who read my profile might be a little more aware of that, but the whole giving out someone else's email behind their back thing kind of creeps me out. I wouldn't want someone who knew mine giving MINE out, just because they thought the person they were giving it to might be a match. That's probably why I don't like the idea of people with no profiles asking me to give them my email to send a picture to. They'll probably NOT be anyone I'd find attractive, and if I tell them that, now they've got my email. They can use it and subscribe me to all kinds of unwanted porn and spam lists just to be obnoxious or vindictive.
