Do you judge other users based on their profiles?

I read a few different threads recently that mentioned this and it honestly look me a little aback. I hadn't paid much attention to what I had in my profile, hadn't provided much personal information for want of privacy, hadn't put in little sayings or anything because I couldn't think of anything interesting etc. Apparently some people don't trust individuals with such a profile lol.

How much stock do you put in what others share in their EF profiles? Do you care? Do you even bother to look?



There was also specific mentioning of the favorite websites feature, and it got me thinking. Exactly what sort of websites are we supposed to be putting there, anyway? I currently just put up ones I felt were relevant to EF, but I have several other "true favorites" that aren't specifically related to sex/relationships/sex toys etc that I'd be happy to share but am not really sure if that's what that section is really meant for. Thoughts?

i don't bother to look, unless I'm curious and then i usually go "oh" and move on. I have been told that a few people followed me because of my profile pic though, if that counts as anything.

I generally look when someone follows me and then move on. I don't judge anyone by what's on it. I think it's a snippet (and a very small one) of what someone wants to project about themselves. Can't judge a book by it's cover so to speak.

I'll sometimes look if I'm curious enough, but beyond that it doesn't really matter.

What's there to judge? I'm just an information junkie who likes to see what people are like. I guess with being a fiction writer I tend to be overly nosy about people as "people" instead of seeing just a single facet of their personalities. Everyone has a story, and I do respect those who don't wish to share.

Has nothing to do with trust or distrust. Just my own curiosity about others.

I read the profiles, but I don't judge. If I'm on someone's profile, it's because they are following me or because I want to follow them. Either that, or because I read something interesting they posted and wanted to know more about them. I also like to know a little about the person writing a review. They might love a toy, but for different reasons than I would. That perspective helps me apply their reviews to my preferences. I guess I just read them for practical reasons.

I'm curious to learn, but if there's no text there to learn from I just haven't gathered any data---it's not "bad," it's just "absent." I have a fond impression of you, so obviously I judge people more by what they write in the forums...

That said, I like it when people list their "true favorite" websites in the website section! None of mine are sex-related, but I think if anyone read through them they'd get a good impression of what I'm interested in.

On the whole, I'm not fussed. However, I do remember finding one or two profiles that had idiotic writing on it. People writing 'I tell it like it is' I find laughable. Most of the time, when people say that of themselves, it's really just an excuse for being an arse. I remember one woman wrote 'I'm a domme but don't go into that BDSM crap' I almost choked on my drink I laughed so hard

However points farming profiles make me fussy.

Here's the way I look at:

You want to know about me? Then engage me in a conversation. What's on my profile is just a tiny piece of who I am, what I've been through and where I hope to go in my life. If anyone judges me by that then that's their problem, not mine. I can't be worrying about what people think about me all of the time.

And I have solid opinions of a lot of the users on this site, but it has nothing to do with what they've put in their profile, it has everything to do with how they interact on the forums.
