    I believe that to be, “an ounce of prevention” but most definitely a good saying @Lois Winters and one we should all take care to heed.:)

    @Ken Anderson This post is definitely food for thought. I have a habit of addressing anyone I get to know (male or female) as dear or hun at times and I have always been a hugger. Online people don't know what we are really like and such salutations could easily be misinterpreted. Also just fun joking around can be misconstrued as flirting with intent. You make a good point that while maybe two involved in friendly banter may be harmless, the others reading the interchange may read in something else. While the way I interact with patients at the cancer center is understood, the same conduct at the seniors center might be misinterpreted. Thanks for keeping this a fun and informative forum. I will try to be more attentive to such detail.

    Hopefully, you will keep missing them, because when there is something that is blatantly off-color, rude, downright inappropriate suggestions, or even adding private information into the post/thread, then either Ken or myself removes that as soon as we see it.
    As was mentioned in another thread, some of these remarks are so off-color that it is unpleasant to even read them, and certainly have no business on our forum.
    Like Ken said, those kinds of comments and suggestions are definitely best left for private messaging, and not to be put on a public forum. Putting your email and other private information in a post is not safe, and it would be removed for that reason alone, even if the post were not an objectionable one.

    I don't really have much more to say, other than what's already been said. There is a time and place for such things as " flirting, types of conversation to another, etc. " Not everyone wants to see or hear this in the public part of our forums. I feel that's what PM's are for, but that doesn't give a person a free ticket to be rude, hurtful or demeaning. Yes @Holly Saunders, thankful to the hands on Admin, very present when needed. Where does flirting and attention behaviour get a person....Nowhere....What is this " Dating online ", have never seen the sense of it yet, maybe i don't get out enough. :confused::confused::confused:. We all have times where we throw our hats in and have those KID MOMENTS, as long as we return to being adults when we're done. :).

    Actually........my wife and I met via a Christian Singles site and I am quite pleased with the results since we have been married some 18-19 years.
    Most forums are for like minded people. Car forums, knife forums, democrat and conservative forums so it would follow that there are quite a few singles forums. There’s even a forum out there for single farm women and men who are looking for yup....someone to marry.
    Matter of fact, a Christian forum I am a member of (but rarely post any longer) was just bought out by a Christian Singles forum.

    Alas, this is the SeniorsOnly Club and not the Seniors in Heat Club. :)

    Precisely what happened to me. Stalking that it was she was doing. Being vindictive by telling other female members that I was some kinda sexual predator. It sure was a mess. The big problem was I had no comeback as she made even admin believe her lies. I was not even able to plead my case.

    Sounds like a good title for a country song.

    As for me, there is a difference between flirting with intent and good humorous banter.
    Having to live on one social security check should come with some perks. :D

    I think the main thing is that the "rest of us" don't need to be unwilling participants in the blossoming romance. :D

    @Bobby Cole @Yvonne Smith So happy the two of you had a success story and results. Bobby, you so truly hit the nail on its head with your quote of " Seniors only Club...not...Seniors in Heat Club " That is why i'm so happy in finding this site, for sharing, friendships and learning, and not needed to make an impression for any other reason. :).
