What do you think about Personal Ads for Satanists, which may include singles (homo-, hetero-, and bi-), fetishists, swingers, and possibly more?

Do we really have to resort to the "Personals" Ads to get laid? This sounds a little desperate to me. Speaking as a male, if you want easy women, just attend a Christian church! It's still a great place to pick up chicks. Or just pick up people from your work place, campus, social groups, etc.

And as an old time favorite, you can always try a club or bar. There's nothing like large numbers of horney young females getting drunk and flirting hard with guys as they grind against you on the dance floor to let you know that the "mating signal" has been given! An old standby, but still a popular favorite.

But for those Satanists who want something more than a "meaningful overnight relationship," that's when some real effort may have to be put in to find someone compatible. But even that is covered in the above paragraph under "social groups."

But online singles ads are a popular form of "connecting" these days and if you want to try it, I can see no good reason why you shouldn't keep all your options open.

I am in agreement with Hauss.

Cheap fucks, be they; Hetero, homo, bi, are easy to find.

Meaningful relationships, I do not care what people say, do not start with dating websites. The only people you find there are too introvert to want to go out and find a mate in person, or just plain lazy.

I understand that "personals" have a bad reputation. Lazy people, desperate people, etc... I also know that this is not entirely true when it comes to people looking for specific situations or types of people.

Quite frankly, I didn't really start meeting other Satanists until I started going online to places like this. Truth be told, I discovered someone here on LttD whom I'd known many years earlier - and I had no idea that he was a Satanist! (Not to mention that Virus9 and I owe it to this message board for our first meeting...five years later and we're still laughing about how he was just looking for someone to babysit his cats!)

So I could see how such personals would be beneficial to people looking for others who think along the same lines. It's not like we can just go to a brick-n-mortar church to seek one another out.

By the same token, I can also see how such a thing could be problematic and I'd like to think that people would use caution. Not to mention how much fun it could be sifting through the genuine from the imitations - not unlike going to a goth bar and trying to sort out everyone wearing an inverted pentacle!

I actually met a girlfriend of many years on a dating website.

I made a profile as a joke and loaded it with my particular brand of low-brow humor, done in a serious-sounding dry format.

It was so twisted and odd that I did not expect any responses other than ridicule.

I was very surprised and pleased when my future girlfriend responded. Not only did she "get" my profile but she began to play back in the same style.

We hit it off immediately and were together for years.

Dating sites can be useful as long as you don't portray yourself in an unrealistic way. Even though my ad was silly and odd, it still accurately portrayed my sense of humor and general disposition.

What are the odds we would have met at a bar? Oh yeah, that's right- not a fucking chance in hell. \:D

Hell, our mutual acquaintances didn't fair any better at introducing us. The only one who bothered trying gave me the impression that you were an ever bigger flake than she was. ;\)

There's nothing like walking up to someone, fondling their jewelry, and asking, "So, are you a Satanist, or do you just wear this to piss off your parents?"

I'm sure you'll be quick to point out that my favorite line has yet to find me an actual Satanist, but at least it's gotten me a few interesting friends. ;\)

I used to frequent Bulletin Board Systems (BBS for all you young folks) that were for games. You had to create a profile and introduce yourself also. Mine read, "Fat. Depressed. Horny."

Similar to your experience, the one that 'got it' responded along the same vein; "I'm just like you. Wanna eat junk food and look at my pornography collection?"

We ended up meeting and having a blast. We are still friends.


On the topic specifically, generally my experiences online have been much like real life; some good, some bad, and very few that I truly connected with.

On one hand it's safer to weed through the cesspool, on the other hand, you never really know someone until you are in their presence: eye contact, mannerisms, tone, speech. When face to face in conversation, what is not said is often as important as what is.

Judging someone fully can only be done in person.

Not a bad idea.

I did meet a few Satanists online that I would have loved to get in bed with… if they weren't on the other side of the world*, I probably would have.

I did meet a few people through BDSM sites, though I got sick of sorting through all the crap and abandoned it.
It's always a problem getting hold of someone who can handle my twisted mind, yet isn't a psychopath (and there are a lot of those running around).

Nothing wrong with it.

If you wish to meet another Satanist who shares your same interest you simply can't (well you could and look like a fool) put a sign on your back that says:

"Looking for Satanist to share a good time with". It's simply NOT that easy.

I have met a few people as an end result of this board who have made My life so much greater as an end result of their friendship and who I adore beyond measure.

HOWEVER, sometimes the hunt is half the fun.

I am not opposed to it but do feel it could/would open a can of worms that would attract defacto Satanist, nutjobs, and possibly religious fruitcakes wishing to convert one to Xtianity.

Right. And now that I think about it, I'm positive that several people on this board have already hooked up. So what's stopping anybody from PMing someone they think is of interest?

Keeping in mind this post of course. ;\)

Priest LEVIATHAN!

Seriously though, I don't know about that. I certainly don't want every Tom Dick and Harry PMing Me when they have 'cat scratch fever'.

Maybe......maybe (but this would be more work for Magister Ventrue) there could be an option, an aside PM system if you will or a seperate forum for personals?

One could turn OFF this feature if they DO NOT wish to hook up with anyone and one could turn it on when they get that groovy feeling inside.

I still......don't trust everyone on this forum and it would be foolish to think everyone is who they say they are. A hooking up option may not be the best thing.

There are legal things and this and that and if someone ends up missing with a severed head well....who will get blamed? THE CoS is who.

That wouldn't be good.

I say, do things on your own. Be wise, use discresion and take Magister Ventrues advice to never meet someone from online without someone else there with you.

I watch a LOT of Forensic Files on Court TV.

That's what I meant. My guess is that it is already happening. I am not only referring to romantic inclinations, but also friends and mentors.

Be safe no matter what, but online networking has accelerated my understanding of Satanism. Especially when I consider that the books mentioned here in hundreds of posts I probably would never have heard of, much less have had them been recommended so highly.

If you understand how to filter some drivel, the resources available to you are invaluable. Including friendships, romantic or not.

Maybe you should move. ;\)

I ain't sayin', I'm just sayin'.

An aside: I've been a member and an admin on another site for years. It's a site for amateur writers (and even some non-amateurs) to post various kinds of writing and get feedback. People often meet up, and they often find they've got a lot in common. I've met two girlfriends through the site - one from NC that I saw for 8 months, and one who lives in NY now that I've been seeing for about a year and a half. Other users have met their spouses through the site. I don't know what it is about the site that lends itself to meeting interesting and attractive people, except that it's NOT a personals site and so everyone has a different reason to go there anyway. It's about sharing your writing, so nobody feels dorky or awkward about it, nobody has an agenda, and you get to be friends with someone before there are any expectations.

I reckon LttD already plays something like this role, putting people who have something common in touch, without the need for a formal "personals".
