I too am a MYSPACE user, although I have neglected it lately due to the Letterboxing AQ time. I had met several people through MYSPACE, mostly just friends, dated a few, and then almost 2 years ago met Charlie through there. Although he lives just in the next town 8 miles away and we could have met in the grocery store or in church, we didn't ..... we met on the internet. It does sound funny to say people are so leary of it still.... but it's been great and I think the internet is a great way to meet people, no matter what you're looking for. New friends to go letterboxing with, a date for Saturday night or the love of your life.

I've never considered using it as a dating tool. I just plain don't care for it. I like Facebook better, but I still wouldn't use it for dating. :o)

Ick. The Craig's List in Hartford is all about married people looking to cheat. I hope it's different in your area!

One of my friends told me I should get a MySpace page back when I was married, so I could re-connect with old friends, and I did, but soon after I was seperated and changed my status on the page, I was getting about a dozen friend requests a day from women with web cams.
All got reported as spam, but it just got annoying after awhile. I noticed though when I was briefly seeing someone and I changed the status to "in a relationship" that the numbe r when down to one or two a week. After we stopped seeing each other a few months ago I just left it the way it was, since I just use MySpace to contact friends and people I went to school with.
But I was thinking of changing it back if people had positive experiences meeting others through the site.

I am on MySpace, but I wouldn't consider it for dating either. I also ignore friend requests unless I know a person, or they are a letterboxer or a Postcrosser. My MySpace link is in my profile if there is anyone who would like to add me as a friend that hasn't already. :)

Hi, all! I'm new to this board, but have been a member of AQ for a long time. I'm in the process of a divorce and thought I'd join. I'm not looking right now, besides friendship. Too busy with kids and full time college student.

That's my fear, too! I did go to my facebook and joined the letterboxing groups there. I'll probably start doing something with that. I'm afraid to join myspace because of everything I've heard about it.

May I ask what it is that you are afraid of? I have been on it for several years and I haven't had any problems.

I tried it as some friends of mine in Alabama were on it. I was not pleased. And I picked up a really bad virus that crashed my computer. My advise, Use extreme caution!

Quote I have been on it for several years and I haven't had any problems.

I haven't had any huge problems with it, but one guy sent me pictures of his... equipment. I reported him, then looked at his page and it turned out we went to high school together. I sent him an email and said that I vaguely remembered him, and that was unacceptable. He said, "I'm sorry. I just kind of liked you back then and I found your myspace page so I thought I'd send you an email." I said, "Clearly, you don't respect me, if that's the kind of email you're going to send..." But that's really where it ended. :::shrug:::

I've been on it for a few years now too. I started it because my teenagers all had one and I just wanted to monitor. I havent had any problems either. I think, with everything, there is good and bad. For example, the 6 six girls from Mulberry, FL that beat up a girl because of comments she supposedly put on myspace. Locally, thats all they talked about hear- how myspace was the "anti-christ" and how it should be removed completely. Ridicuous!!
I dont think I would use it for a dating tool but its great for keeping in touch with friends and family.

I'm on Myspace, but haven't had much dating luck, there. Some interesting forum conversations, especially on the SCA page; the thread "You Know You're In the SCA When...." is just laugh-out-loud funny, if you know the background.

Hmm, thinking about your question, I guess I haven't heard a lot about myspace, but the little I've heard about it makes me leery. Such as getting messages from married men, seeing pics of "equipment," etc. I have enough issues right now with my (ex)husband that I just don't want the hassle of having to deal with people who aren't on the up & up or don't respect my boundaries (such as no married men, or men wanting "friendly" relationships, if you know what I mean).

I just want to keep my life as simple as possible right now, and I'm afraid that myspace will be more hassle than fun.

Does that make sense? Not that I'm not up to meeting new people . . . I am a letterboxer, you know!! That's part of the fun! But here on AQ I'm safe from all the things I mentioned about myspace. I know I don't have to worry about those things and that's one reason why I enjoy AQ so much.

I think you hear about those because those are the worst cases. I would have to guess that those things have not happened to most people. There are always going to be morons like that on the internet. MySpace just happens to be *one * outlet for them.

It is kinda boring in its appearance, but a few of the applications can be fun. I am addicted to the Buffy trivia. :)

Hey 3H, did you ever add me to the AQ Facebook group?

I would, but I'm not the group owner. :o) I don't remember if I sent you a friend request. Hmm... Can you AQ mail me your name (if you don't want to put it here) so I can check? I tell ya, it's making me crazy looking at all the names in the AQ Facebook group and trying to figure out who everyone is! LOL :o)

I started a page on there, but it is pretty empty. I need to get a more recent photo. The ones I have on MySpace are several years old. I did put my MySpace page in my profile on here though. Just so everyone can see my cute boys.

I was wondering if anyone had used MySpace as a tool for dating or meeting people,


Funny you should ask. There was one pserson that lived in the same town as me. She worked for a weekly newpaper so I sent a message or two to her about that and always got a reply. When I sent a message asking what she liked to do in her spare time I never got a resonse. Go figure.

I don't think you need an invite. I was able to do a search and join the groups from my facebook page.
