devozione, why the grumpy bum? Would it be any different offline if you went around proclaiming nett worth as selling point? Our profiles are selling points, photos, voice, these boards...everything we do or say is being measured...just as we measure the nuainces of people in real life vs the facts of themselves as presented to us by them.
There was a thread before asking about the importance of communication in relationships...the responses a unanimous yes, but I pondered how many people say that, without asking the question 'how honest?' is this person/am I being here?
Putting something like you're nett worth on a profile, while an innocent act for most, is used as a hook by many...men buy sex...women sell sex. What is 'sex'? Is it just the act? Or is it everything you did, every moment you breathed, every action you caused, to getting it? Is it the promise of? Whatever the driving forces, the lure of money, using or wanting, innocent or otherwise, is found in every sector of society and will be no different on here.
You've learnt a timely cyber lesson. The same lesson women learn when they realise the idea of 'men' online can be generalised as 'looking for sex' or are 'players'. The fact these have being Dominant women is neither here nor there. Another timely cyber lesson...don't believe all you read...you're believing these women to be Dominant just as readily as they are willing to believe your nett worth.
Yes it can be offensive to think these women may have only being interested in your 'worth', but the same offense can be taken by women who only get approached when they have a pretty - to - provocative picture?
As genders we both have our crosses to bear...the trick is to not be the one carry it.
But who is anyone here to condemn, dismiss or stereotype monetary relationships? Or why 'gifts' should be considered anymore tasteful than hard cold cash when they both give the same result?
Whether it be D/s or vanilla, as long as all parties involved consent to the boundaries of the relationship, I see no reasons why any monetary or gifts should be considered distasteful?
For me the honesty with which the relationship is conducted means more than the pedantics around it.
