We've never asked for a cert and won't.

We did have someone ask us for a cert once. Quite frankly, we were shocked. We'd met him when he was single, but just had drinks and had never met her. They just wanted a cert to be credible. HOW were we supposed to do that? **boggles the mind** Had we spent some time w/ both of them and thought that they were cool, we wouldn't have minded at all. Most people agree that being certed is important or at least a factor and a lot of couples want to get that first one posted and that's reasonable.

We tend to only certify people we have played with. The reason in our mind is b/c we're on a swing site looking for swingers. Not pic collectors, people that email a thousand emails with no intention of ever meeting, etc... Rarely will we certify someone we haven't played with but sometimes have b/c as some of you have pointed out just b/c you're not compatible with them doesn't mean the next couple will be. This does let people know they are real and will meet.

The tricky certs are the ones you meet and they're great the first time. Then the second meet they really show you thier true colors or they become clingy or have different agendas.

Good luck and happy swinging.

Reminds me of "I gave YOU a gift NOW where's mine???" If the Cert isn't given from the heart it's worthless and if you've only given one to expect one in return it wasn't from the heart.

I've never "asked" anyone from a cert. If I met them and had a good time and certed them...if there was no response after a couple weeks...I've tried to discretely drop the hint by mentioning people and their certs. As far as asking people about certs...if they have been on the site for a while, I try to judge it by whether they have other certs or not.

Here's our question...is it wrong to ask a couple you've met (and gotten along with, regardless of if you played or not) for a cert? Or is that considered "bad form".

Subsequently, is it wrong to cert another couple without asking them first if they'd like one?

Thank you, curiousity, I feel the exact same way.

If I meet someone and have a good time (whether we have sex or not) and they are a real genuine person, I try to cert them. I know that free members can't return certs, and that's fine. What gets me is the paid and lifetime members who I cert, they accept the cert and put it on their profile, but they never return the cert. Don't get me wrong...I'm not trying to collect certs as notches or something...but I believe that you should be curtieous to one another.

Certifications were intended to just Certify someone is real, their profile accurate, and they actually met. Thus the definition of certifying a profile. This profile is accurate and the people who wrote it are real. Just like so many other areas nowadays, so many have to rewrite the definition of something to suit themselves and weight it all down with BS. All the folks that only certify cause they played, turned it into the kiss and tell list. The idea that if you can't say something nice don't say anything is crazy, just cause you didn't hit it off doesn't change whether they are real or not and actually showed up. Instead of certifications being worded by the certifier, it should be a simple check list. Such as but not limited to: Profile accurate___ Couple was on time___ Communicates well___ etc etc You either check it off or you don't, that way there is no kiss and tell aspect, compliments, and personal stuff don't need to be there anyway. Also for those that want to use it as a play list that could be something to check off as well. However, IF THAT WERE ADDED, I would think that should be a required to answer. yes or no. Just some thoughts

Is it true that only paid members can give certs?

Although we do understand the true meaning of posting Cert's but, we chose not to write or accept Cert's as a result of a rather embarassing situation three years ago where a couple we became very close and lasting friends with decided they didn't care for the sexual preference of a couple we met, played with, and did a Cert for. The couple who read our Cert and the couples profile very childishly sent the couple an e-mail belittling them for their choices. Right or wrong, we view Cert's as "kissing and telling" since that incident. We are upfront with everyone about not doing Cert's and most see our point. We really enjoy our lifestyle experiences and never want violate our close friends confidence in us.

We tend to not certify just b/c we have run into people who pull them if they are not interested anymore but don't let you know, or have run into people that certify everyone as long as they meet face to face. However, if a couple that we get along well with wants us to certify them we will.
