Apparently my last post was too preachy and stalled this thread out. I apologize for letting my "Present Moment" fervor get out of hand. I realize sometimes my spiritual insights do not translate to other people's lives - that's why they're my spiritual insights. Sorry!
Well, the jury's still out for me on whether "seeking friendship only" is the way to go. Sounds like it might help one to get more people to view your profile, but since as Donna said, this moniker is only displayed when a person views your profile, this leads me to the next question: does posting a status of "Seeking Friendship Only" make one more attractive because you no longer care what people think and start posting what you really think in the fora? Perhaps you just become more comfortable with being yourself because you are not impressing anyone? (I obviously don't have any such concern anyway - I've been posting what I think and am probably annoying people. Oh well! ) I'm asking because why else would people know to post on your profile?
Anyway, I wouldn't change my status anyway, because it wouldn't be honest. I am looking for more than friendship - although I'd love some more friends too! One can never have too many friends!
Kristen, the only problem with your previous post was the apology for being too preachy; otherwise, it is right on the money. Keep in mind that: (a) you can't please all of the people all of the time, and (b) when people don't like what you have to say, the problem may not be what you said, but rather how it was interpreted.
