Shelly now you also have to show interest in them. When I took my interest levels to 0 for everyone no one could see our profile.

I am not sure since the system upgrades, but in olden days in order to "HIDE" your profile from a group of people, (I think it's still in use also)

HOME PAGE -- select TOOLS ----select PRIVACY OPTIONS

and you should see a section that will allow you to HIDE your profile from males, females or couples. If you are a paid or lifetime profile, you can even HIDE your profile from FREE MEMBERS.

Previously, by doing that process... those groups could not see you, but you were able to view their profile.

On a side note, when MR. U was a SM and he was contacted by a couple that had SM's blocked in general (therefore HE could not see the profile contacting him) he would block that particular couple from the block option in the email.

I am genuinely confused. There is clearly a choice between 'Block' and 'No' in the 'Who are you looking for?' Single Males category. Yes, SLS says SMs can't IM you (I've gotten several IMs over the years from 'straight' guys who see my profile and want to play away from their wives!), but SMs should be able to see the profile and see the 'meter' for SMs is zero and get the hint that they are not potential playmates. I have run across several profiles like this (I'm looking at one right now), and the site will let me send them mail, though I would not attempt to propose a tryst with them as they are clear about their preferences. However, currentrider, when I attempt to see your profile, I am blocked, what gives?

I agree that it seems really dumb of SLS to equate zero interest with "I want them blocked". And that changing the interest level to "a little" in order to solve this problem can only lead to confusion.

So why can I see some profiles with zero interest in SMs but not others?

Maybe it just works with couples? Maybe single guys have to have one segment on the bar section for single males, so other guys can contact them for non-sexual purposes.

SLS admins, can you shed some light on this?

I have several of the quick replies set up for the inevitable messages that you end up getting from people who aren't compatible for one reason or another.

They probably get hit up by a lot of gay, bi or bi-curious men which can be annoying. It happens to me who clearly states that I have no desire to meet gay, bi or bi-curious men so I can feel where they're cumming from like one of the posters indicated below.

I'm not sure that all single guys realize that by not indicating interest in men, that SLS prevents other single men from viewing their profiles. As someone else wrote, I think SLS needs to change that, or clearly indicate that it works this way when you are setting your interest levels.

Though I am 100% straight, I do not block single guys. Quality guy friends are important and earlier writers addressed that well.

I've had a few bi men approach with interest (even though I clearly state that I'm 100% straight near the top of my profile!), but when I've replied with no interest, I had no more contact from them.

As far as the current conflict of the indicator bar showing interest, when I don't have interest in playing with guys, I have the following statement very near the top of my profile: "I am 100% straight and do not play with single guys. I have one segment on the bar section for single males, so my buddies can contact me. We don't play with each other but will do threesomes with a lady."

I would think that is pretty clear.

Oh, sorry I neglected to mention the disclaimer....we are very aware that not all single males are interested in gang bangs or group, some are just looking for 3-some with a couple, 1-1 with a lady, a girlfriend, or a swing partner and friends.

We all are entitled to play the way we wanna play!

Welcome to the forums:

We hear that frequently. Every person is entitled to swing however they want to w/willing partners and manage their profile as they see fit. Good luck to you!

This profile (OP) is now a couple, but we are still moderators of a group with another SM administrator. Single males OFTEN want to join the GB group so that they will have access to any events and they want to meet the couples and single ladies. If a SM applicant denies the administrator the opportunity to review their profile pictures and content {Mr U liked to meet them for a beer also when he was the administrator} their membership request will probably be denied unless we happen to already know him. But even if one does get in or if he re-blocks SM's again...we don't post our member's GB location details on the sign up board anyway. They have to get that info directly from one of us in a birdie....and if they have signed up....JUST how if they blocked the administrator, how does he expect to receive the sls email with the address, rest assured that I wouldn't give my telephone number to a stranger by texting him the info either.

Like Mr. U said in the OP, we have encountered many that demonstrate a lack of common sense.

I can't speak for all who block single males but for me it was because even though my profile indicates I am neither bi, gay or bi-curious I kept getting emails from single men and couples with a bi male who seemed hell bent on "converting" me. And while your motives seem noble enough and I am sure there are others that are like minded, I felt I was left with little or no choice but to put the block in place. While I understand that this might "limit" some options for me, the trade off seemed worth it.
