I sometimes look at who is on the site and how many members or staff are also on. There are always way more "guests" than members viewing. Considering that everyone is anonymous why do you think so many people just lurk and never take the time to tell their story or actively seek specific advice for their SM situation.
Worksforme2 why do you think so many people just lurk and never take the time to tell their story
1. I have read that people "think" they will be recognized so they don't post. 2. Some people think they are betraying their spouse if they talk about what is wrong with their mate. 3. I suppose some people don't have the best or worst marriage and want to compare their life with others. 4. Some people just want to know how other people live and what problems they face. 5. Some people think about leaving their marriage and want to know what future issues will crop up that they didn't think of. 6. Some people want to see how divorce and dating works out. 7. Some people think their spouse might find out what the member of ILIASM forum said so they are reluctant to be found out and want to avoid an argument.
8. But I think the number one reason people read forums like ILIASM is they want to fix their partner. Why those people don't post is a mystery to me.
I often count the number of people that do not post
Maybe there are also those hunting? A web site devoted to sexually frustrated people must lure some weird types who think they can get lucky? Personally I hunt for someone who can cure my awful spelling.
Getting lucky (connecting) with a ILIASM member is really sketchy because most people live so far apart. Well for me any way.
I could see myself fancying some ILIASM female members if the interest was mutual and we lived in relatively close proximity but distance makes that unlikely in reality.
Maybe it (meeting a member) might work in highly populated areas, but for me and where I live it might be 50+ miles to the next small town.
My next question is, Has anyone gotten a PM from a non-poster? If so, what type of message was it? I remember a woman on another forum that got a blackmail message threatining to expose her to her H, from someone.
Maybe the people that do not post are checking on their spouse. I have heard of that happening a couple of times.
As far as the number of guests visiting our site the number is misleading. Every time I log in I first show up as a guest until I go through the login process. I assume it is the same for each of us. Which means the number of guests per day will be equal or greater than the number of members logging in.
"Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity."
This the "Shoutbox" -- basically a site-wide, group chat. (It's only visible to members.)
worksforme2: Since our esteemed governor has declared a state of emergency here in NC (a total of 12 cases so far) the hording of toilet paper has begun. Is diarrhea a part of covid 19? I see Lowes and Home Depot have quick install toilet retro fit bidets.

petrushka: I've no idea what it is with the toilet paper hoarding. I walked out of a supermarket yesterday and saw a woman with the jumbo sized trolley and some 4x 18 roll packs of toilet paper. Nuts. Completely nuts. Incidentally, a bidet is definitely the way to go

petrushka: Even her little 5 or 6 year old was questioning her purchase!

worksforme2: Former Miss Hawaii tests positive. Being the gallant lad that I am I have offered her the use of my guest bedroom to "shelter in place"..

worksforme2: Hey tamara68, there is a covid19 positive cat in Belgium, watch out for it.
Mar 30, 2020 14:05:56 GMT -5
tamara68: @worksforme I think I have to be more careful for all infected people. Most likely I already have Covid19

worksforme2: tamara68.....it's been a couple weeks since you posted you may have the covid19 virus. hopefully you are feeling better and are on your way to renewed health
Apr 11, 2020 5:31:38 GMT -5
tamara68: @worksforme thanks, yes I am feeling better. How is it in the USA?
Apr 14, 2020 1:57:26 GMT -5
worksforme2: some better and some worse,..virus seems to be slowing down, but people are beginning to refuse to stay inside,...worst thing I see is Biden leading in the election poles,...but that could be fake news

mirrororchid: Politics? Is that what we want to happen here?
Apr 21, 2020 6:21:24 GMT -5
petrushka: Certainly not American style politics. Toxic echo chambers.
Apr 23, 2020 16:21:52 GMT -5
petrushka: However, I feel that sexual politics, including political moves that impact the relationships between gender (misogynist, misandrist, etc) definitely deserve room in this context.

fred: just calculated that i've spent somewhere near 19,000 days (& nights) as a "rejectee".AND that allows for 2,000+ days (& nights) on business travel apart from her. i've chosen to "stay" .....would never do that again, and can't as you see doing the math
May 15, 2020 18:01:15 GMT -5
worksforme2: 19000 days and nights,....damn dude, that's 52 yrs.

fred: you're a little short works - was thinking this AM, there has NEVER been a day when she indicated desire for me physically (other than for heavy lifting or finance)........LOL...........earlier, i had enough libido for both of us, now i'm left with guilt
Jun 20, 2020 13:11:12 GMT -5
fred: over imposing myself on her rather than simply leaving .....DAMN LOVE ANYWAY !

mesulina: update everyone, still has not happened. I have now come to accept that I will live with out. It is just different now.

worksforme2: Sorry mesulina,... but on the positive side you did stock up on toys a short time back,..now might be the time to go for the gusto
