All That Glitters....

All That Glitters....


My little gold crown evaporated last week. I'd had it for 2 months @ $30 per month, dollar a day, not that bad. I was able to perv a lot of profiles, near and far, pretty soon it's easy to spot the fakes. One thing I did notice: when I would log on the initial 12 profiles "online" in my area were (a) women looking for women, (b) women looking for BBC, or (c) women looking like an example of a disease out of a medical text book. In other words, nothing for mc. Funny thing, after my crown of gold was gone, there was a slew of inviting profiles right here within my reach. Profiles that I'd seen before my gold, but never during. Tricky little bastards.

That's OK, I know a few tricks after 8 yrs here, and I'm happy to share them. If you buy gold at the full rate for a couple of months in a row, then stop, they'll offer you a rate "for your loyalty" of $9 a month for 6 or 12 months. That's not bad at all. PLUS, every time there is the slightest inconvenient glitch, call the 800 number. Whine, moan, and groan about how long you've been here, how you've paid for your gold status which is now worthless, and how you had true love within your grasp, until this glitch ruined everything. The powers that be in far away lands will give you a 2 week extension on your gold status every time just to shut your whiny American ass up. I don't know if this works for whiny Canadian asses, but give it a shot. I've gotten months free like this.

Another thing, when your beginning your whine with those cow worshiping folks so far away, the 1st time they don't understand you, tell them, "sorry, I'm eating a hamburger". And after you spell your password out 3 times and they tell you," that's correct" after logging in, I always make sure to tell them, "I know it's correct, it's MY password". Remember, the rest of the world sees us as "whiny and privileged", we gotta keep up appearances.

Got gold? Porque, no?

When it comes to whining, I should have a crown, because I'm the King!

I would have figured you have earned enough points in your time here to view however may profiles you want for almost forever. Since I'm in a rural-ish are I have plenty in case some new woman shows up. I have also found many of the women here are on Plenty o Flotsam and contacting them there is free.

But next time I have to call a "out of state" call center I'm gonna use the hamburger line

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

We're Canadians we say Sorry and offer to pay them. Arent you worried that now you have given out all your helpful hints your whining will get you no where fast. I am sure they all spend hours reading the blogs here taking names and adding people to the naughty list.

I don't have shit for points, I get squat for blogging, in the last 4 months I've accumulated 98 points. I've seen some here as well as POfish, problem is, I wasn't interested in them, anywhere.

Hahahaha y'all are too nice! I've told many of my friends about the 2 wk extensions, and they always respond to me, "It Worked!". Taking names? That would imply some sort of organizational skills on their part. I think we both know better than that.

I must be Canadian...I am too polite to whine and bitch at Customer Service...I'll just deal with the lousy glitches.

Good tips, though, I'll keep them in back pocket, just encase...

Thanks for sharing this. I've wondered if single men have any opportunities for free membership. I know single women and couples have free gold available to them pretty much in perpetuity, something that both reveals A LOT about this site and bugs me quite a bit.

It doesn't seem right and fair that single men are the only demographic group that is required to pay to use the site- you guys subsidize it for the rest of us. And insult upon injury, they create/allow these fake female profiles that are nothing more than fronts for scams and paid services... basically to feed (or at least buoy) hope against statistical odds- and keep the cha-ching flowing.

If I was a man, I'm not sure I could stay here, knowing the financial model of the place. But I guess the freebies they throw at you take some of the sting out of it. And, being completely realistic (albeit admittedly a bit cynical), I imagine that if all single males had the same access to free gold membership that women and couples do, the already disproportionate male:female ratio would get SO unbalanced and out of control that it would probably be downright scary for a single chick to venture out here.

I believe that long-term, active, and legitimate users like yourself should have the same opportunity for free membership, though. Does anyone know if they let ANY men participate in the Icebreaker program, or is there never any chance for a single guy to completely ride for free??

Gold is wasted on me...I never bother to perv anyone's profile. It would be nice if they gave the option of women being able to "donate" their gold status to some guy who actually needs it, ha.

They have to penalize us guys or like you said, it would be a total sausage site.

Without it you couldn't message anyone that isn't in your friends list, or post a pic in the comments area of a blog, only in your own initial post. Little annoying things.

She could probably say that about non-gold members too.

I just have to do the "ice-breaker". I kept getting rejected until Kay helped me with it. I haven't met anyone from here since Jan of last year, but he was sorta cool.

We don't get to do the "ice breaker", but if guys were sending them, they'd probably be called "ice picks".

Thanks for the tips . . . Interesting strategy I'll have to give it a shot when I get bored enough . .

As I wrote in "Low Hanging Fruit", I turned my auto-renew off last week and BAM , they offered me 12 months for $48. I jumped on it. That's like 13 cents a day.
