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".

If one is *polite* about it (at least until he is sure that the other side wouldn't mind getting dirty about it ;)) so there really isn't anything stopping one from using this message board.
But it would be much easier to hook up if there was a special site that would specify who is looking for what.

Of course you can never know who you are dealing with.. even on a message board for Satanist.
But it sure does increase the possibility that you might find a Satanist in a Site for Satanists. Right?

I highly doubt that could be possible if the service would come with a clear "at-your-own-risk" condition.
Even if they were to blame the CoS, there wouldn't be any legal backing to it.

I always think that the ones who are foolish enough to do that, are the ones who deserved whatever happened to them (unless they were children, of course… then it's the stupid parents' fault).

BTW- was this meant for me? Or did you thread it to me by accident? (because I can't see the connection between my post and your reply..)

The CoS certainly doesn't need ANY bad publicity. Satanist are already thought of as Devil worshipping baby killers who pull dogs tails and the wings off of butterflies.

But yes, I would love to be in your club as long as I get to wear my cool leather jacket.

I'll agree that The Hunt can be fun, but it can also be a pain in the arse when you know what you want and don't want to spend forever and a day looking for it when you have other things to do! \:\)

One thing I like about personals is that there's no guesswork as to what people are there for. You state exactly what you are looking for, be it friends, one-nighters, possible relations, whatever... and toss your line out with absolutely no obligation to reel in every fish that nibbles at the bait.

Personals are just another tool to help narrow down your playing field. Have a few chats online, pick a nice public place for a first date, and see what happens. I think the risk factor is about the same as going to a bar looking to get laid.

It's probably not a great idea for Satanists.

Or at least to be advertising as such publicly. "Getting laid" is easy enough. But 'dating' websites can be good places to meet people of similar interest.

Yes. I got sick of the bar and nightclub 'scene' a while ago. It makes it easier to filter out the unattractive headcases.

But that's just it! You don't KNOW that the person who put out that information is TRULY seeking out that type of person.

They could be a serial killer just 'fishing' so to speak.

I have found that people are usually NOT who they say they are online NOR do they truly tell you their intent when wanting to meet you.

Remember as a general rule that people are at their MOST deceptive when first meeting another person. They will tell you what you want to know even if it is NOT the truth.

I learned My lesson. It is a hard lesson.

I agree but I think sometimes this has to do with the expectations of the other party. I have talked to people online and, when I met them in person, I expected something else. Not a fault of theirs; just an unfair expectation by me.

I've found the same to hold true with blokes you just meet in a bar, a library, wherever...

Believe me, I've dated a few complete psychopaths who were just the most charming creatures during the first week or so that I was in their acquaintance. It's been my experience that people tend to be on their best behaviour for the first couple of dates and try to impress the Hell out of you - be it online or in person.

The best you can really do is meet your date a few times in a nice well-lit, public place with lots of people around. (or better yet, double-date with a friend!) And then trust your gut instincts before taking it any further after that. If something doesn't feel right, don't take it any further!

I'd be content to know which Satanists on LttD are single and which are not. Beyond that, I don't need personals. I mistrust personal ads.

I'd guess it's a matter that often writing can reveal much about the true nature of the writer, even when it's fiction, and so reading another's work gradually over time allows you to get to know that person at least as much as you would on a first date. Effectively, it can be a filter.

(Though like you said, that's not the agenda, just something that happens naturally though the happenings of that board.)

I've seen this question come up from time to time. First, regarding personal ads in general:

I've used them. And I pretty much got the same results as I've gotten from women I met through other means: some were enjoyable and even led to some long-term relationships, some women I couldn't stand, and others just faded away with both parties rather indifferent.

Now, regarding the idea of a Satanic personals:

In theory, I understand the pros. Many of us would like to meet people of like-interests, and with Satanists being such a minority it would seem that we should try a "direct hook-up" of sorts. But I see a few problems:

1) Isn't this what we have things like lesser magic and the Conjuration of Lust for? Again, I've shamelessly used personals, but a Satanic dating service seems a little weird on this point.
2) Would everybody on the list be a Satanist for sure? Who knows if it would include devil worshipers, christians posing as Satanists, etc.
3) Would you have enough people to make it geographically worthwhile? If you don't live near a metropolitan city, chances are you might see only one or two candidates that live within a 100 miles radius of you.
4) You'd still have a lot of the problems that plague classifieds in general: a disproportionate number of men, 90% of the readers of either sex saying "Well I'm not going to post. I'll just read." which gets nobody anywhere, etc.

Ultimately there's that barrier called Privacy that most cannot get past, plus going up to someone and asking them 20 questions is just sort of out of the ordinary. If there would ever be such, then security would be high priority, and the like. So an Adult Personals for Satanists sounds like a good Idea, but is a complete waste of space and time.

If you want to meet someone, then merely contact them, and get the business out before the pleasure. Lay out the requirments that must be there for any sort of meeting to take place.

Don't ask anything you feel could be as a way of coaxing personal information from someone. That could be looked at as invasion of Privacy, and keep in mind they may very well be able to decide not to answer.

It serves far better then an adult personals site, if you're looking for a certain type of person. ;\)

Be respectful and try to get to know the individual first, so as to not offend anyone.

Yep, I reckon that's exactly it.

On a singles site, you see people present themselves the way they think they need to, to attract the kind of person they think they want.

On a site where other things are going on, you see them present themselves in other ways. The more that's going on, the more facets you get to see of them.

Even then it's not perfect. I've met lots of people that I knew first from on-line (sometimes for years), and very often they tell me they always thought I'd be really serious and not the kind of person to laugh a lot. Text-only perceptions can be deceiving.

Well since this is a personals thread, I'm going to take a little advantage.

What's up! Single black Satanic male looking for a single white Satanic female. Not because there aren't any Satanic black females, I just have jungle fever.

These are the requirements:

- must have a big butt. A brotha can't get enough of that ass.
- must shake it fast, watch yourself and show me what you're working with.
- must know how to cook the following foods:

fried chicken
collard greens
macaroni and cheese
yams
bbq ribs and hot links

- must be willing to walk around Compton, Watts and South Central.
- must be willing to go to the liquor store.
- no cuddling after sex. You must get your stank, sweaty ass off of me, walk to the kitchen and make me a sandmich.
- must hustle on the corner.
- must listen to gangsta rap.
- must know how to play dominoes and roll dice.

If you meet any of these requirements, please email me at:
satanicgangstapimp@dmail.com

Come on baby. Let's do this!

HS!

If I was a big-bootied female, how would I be able to resist?

One thing to specify, make sure that it's only the butt that is big, and not the rest to match! \:D

I'm sure many people have met through this site, but it isn't the site's purpose. Not to mention, a personals site would refine the search on those types you may be interested in.

How about the use of a personality test, such as the Meyers-Briggs, to help define the individual?

The use of such tests do help define the personality of the individual, and make things a little easier.
While the tests can't fish out ALL of the bullshit, it can certainly thin it out.

The structure of the test involved doesn't necessarily need to be like any of those you may currently find.

Suppose there were a personality test that involved questions that were designed specifically with the Satanist in mind?

How would you feel about that?

It seems to me that this could be accomplished easily enough with an extra field or two in the personal user profile, perhaps named "Marital/Relationship status". (Of course, I've never actually run a webforum so I can't say for sure how easy that would actually be. For all I know it'd be like asking for the elevator in a fifty-story building to be moved twelve lousy inches to one side.)

Precisely! You got it. And maybe extra space in the field to just state pressing preferences, a la "blondes need not apply" or "must be polyamorous," but not enough space to go on and on and on.

From there, I think we know by now who we do and don't like, so I think we can match ourselves.

I second that Bill. To add to this, it sounds as if the assumption is that all or most Satanists prefer to be with other Satanists, which I don't think is true. I like to post on this board here but I don't know any other Satanists that are near by. I am getting married to a wonderful lady in a couple of weeks, she is not a Satanist and I like it that she's not. Most people who encounter us as a couple assume that she is though. Someone else had mentioned on here awhile back that the whole idea that Satanists should be with Satanists is bunk! I think personals are allright too but only devoted to Satanists-nah! I read somewhere that if you are in the market for a mate, go somewhere where people share your interests and hobbies. (not online but in the real world). Go to a different shop or coffee store everyday and pay attention, is there someone there that interests you? If there is keep going back and make yourself known to them. I like to fart around on the computer as much as anyone, but look at it this way, if I am looking to have fun fishing, I am going to go to the lake and experience it in full!

I was thinking the same thing. My wife has no real interest in Satanism beyond the fact that she's married to one. I did ask her to read The Satanic Bible, so she would have a reference when I talked about it. She was glad to, said it made a lot of sense, but has no interest beyond that. What is important to me is what interests we may have in common, and what kind of person she is. As with all my other relationships, I need someone who is intelligent enough to engage me in conversation, attractive enough to keep me interested, and likes long walks in the moonlight...wait...that last was a quote from my personal ad.

True, just the fact that two people are both Satanists is no guarantee of anything, and there's certainly nothing preventing a great match with a non-Satanist. As with most everything, individuals matter much more than generalized categories.

But if you're on the lookout for a smart, interesting, self-aware person, it'd be reasonable to at least keep your eyes open when interacting with a group of Satanists. I can say for myself that there are one or two ladies on this board who've impressed me greatly and with whom I certainly wouldn't mind sharing at least a dinner-and-conversation date.

A Satanic "meat market" probably wouldn't work, for all the reasons Bill_M pointed out, but I'm liking TrojZyr's suggestion of a simple, unobtrusive way to broadcast "available" vs. "unavailable".

I personally think the dating scene should be left where it belongs. There are many websites with the focus to meet people with particular interests for a possible relationship.

I personally think it is a terrible idea !

I want to keep my eyes on my one true love and that is my personal Satan, Satanism and the beliefs as a whole. I do not want my focus diverted to possibly just one thing, such as looking at personals.

How would I meet my purpose and objectives when my attention is diverted ?

I'm not sure that a personals section for Satanists would do very well, or last long.

Dating sites are not my cup of tea to begin with. It seems as if the criteria is a bit forced, and never truly represents the character of the individual. The mystery of actually reading and getting to know another person from scratch is gone, and initial judgment calls can be subconsciously based on an internet profile.

Having said that, I don't think it would be wise for Satanists to post personal information on a forum, especially about the religion of Satanism. You never know who's out there, or what lunatics, clingy nutcases, or "Satanist" pretenders are lurking around on the internet.

Time for me to chime in on this one. I, myself, am also dating someone that isn't a Satanist but is aware of my affiliation and is very cool with it. She is one who agrees with a lot of the philosophy but that's as far as it goes. I don't trust dating sites at all, and yes, I've tried them. They are definitely not for me. I love interacting with people of like mind and this seems to be one of the few venues I feel comfortable doing so. Although, to be perfectly honest, I would love to interact in person with people of like mind but that comes in time. Always willing to grab a micro-brew and talk. Portland area troublemakers and misanthropes....er...Satanists "hit me up". Heh, I've always wanted to use that annoying phrase, now it's done and I'm over it.

It's true there are fruitcakes out there, but that's the real world. If this is the mindset people choose to take, they can lock themselves up in their homes and order pizza every night. No matter how you look at it--online or off--it is STILL the world as it is.
People can be just as deceptive in person, though it is a little more challenging than online.

As far as personal information, limits may be drawn.

This is irrelavent.

Why has this even come up? It wasn't mentioned that Satanists shouldn't or couldn't be with non-Satanists. That isn't the topic.

I suppose if enough people were interested, one method could be to just open a specific forum downstairs, and those interested could post there what they're looking for and let it go via PMs after that. If someone isn't interested, either in an individual or the whole idea, they can skip that forum or thread the way they can skip any other particular forum or thread.

Or it could be a separate area like LttD Photos or the Arcade.

If done in this manner, at least there'd be some level of assurance that the individual is indeed a Satanist, plus you could scope them out a bit through their other posts in the forum to get a broader idea of what they're like, which is an added advantage over regular dating sites.

Time would show how much of a demand there is.

Leave it to the herd. Quite frankly the security issues are the highest concern, and quite frankly would serve to do more damage then good. To go and step into a personals for Satanist only is a waste of time. To continue to say otherwise is to say you don't get the point.

For a Satanist, Security is everything, keeping those whom are Psuedo satanists away. It's like taking the Elite out of The Alien Elite, and an Adult Personals for Satanist would still have insecurities, where as getting to know the person through their posts, talking in private, and actually meeting them is far more secure. What's even more secure is actually the ones that live around you.

Even then it's not a sure thing that the individual is being honest.

I suppose it could be both good and bad, the good side is that an individual may find a suitable mate without the trial and error of traditional dating. Then again it would be akward if the person you where in contact with was a co-worker or your supervisor. So I suppose it would be a risk either way, but what the hell, I suppose it could be interesting either way. \m/

I think personals for Satanists is a good idea. True, personals can be viewed as an introvert's haven from the reality of actually going out there and getting some. Yep, there is always the possibility, even likelihood, of people misrepresenting themselves online. Still, I like the idea for its ability to reduce exposure risk.


I can only imagine that there are untold numbers of Satanists and like-minded people that are looking for a mate that shares his or her values. They may be equally interested in not exposing their affiliations and such on less Satan-friendly sites as Match.com, or sites that attract lots of occultic-crazies such as GothicMatch.com. Having a personals site for the exclusive use of registered members would help reduce this risk of potentially unwanted exposure, much as these forums are viewed a haven in comparison to others (See item 2 of Agent_Noir's stickie in the Introductions Forum for just what I mean.).


As far as personals being an introverts' haven, so be it for the introverts. For the rest of us who are not afraid to go out and get some, why not have a place where you can cast a net while you fish elsewhere?


I eventually met My wife on Match.com, and in the time before and during, I had plenty of fun with women I met on and off the Internet.

Well, they already all do it indirectly at 90%

Easy, how can one smell the single wolves :

1° They never laugh with enthusiam when it's a lady with a pull-over.

2° even if she is the dumbest one ever, but they can even barely see a piece of leg, here you'll read :"Woooooah haha ,you soooooo cracked me up !"

...

Voilà.

Hello:

 Quote:
To add to this, it sounds as if the assumption is that all or most Satanists prefer to be with other Satanists, which I don't think is true.

I'm not sure I agree. While I accept that Satanists won't only work with other Satanists, there has to be a number of things in common. I've tried dating women of numerous ethical and religious backgrounds and the only ones that have worked have been Satanists or Atheists; this is because a Satanist (at least how I understand the term) has more to do with a personality type as opposed to a choice of what are considered desirable attributes (see the dictum born not made).

The bottom line is that a "religious" person will be one of two things:

1) They've thought about their religion properly and accept the title in response to said thought.
2) They've not thought about their religion and simply chosen the one they think is best.

If the former is true, I'm dealing with someone who will more than likely have a large number of personality differences and I suspect most of them will be irreconcilable.

If the latter is true, it's more likely that you're dealing with an idiot that'll do pretty much what they're told.

No, thanks.

So while I don't think a Satanist will necessarily be best off with another Satanist, it would take someone who is at least very close to being one to share the right type of personality.

I suspect it goes further than that, actually. If you're careful, online Hunting can be safer; you can build up something of a rapport, see if you have anything in common to discuss and then, if still uncomfortable, call the whole thing off without anything to worry about.

Going to a pub, getting drunk and picking up a sexual partner you've never met before doesn't have a get-out clause.

Spunkeater7,

I come bearing news from the underworld! Satan, the almighty lord of jean jackets and fine wine, requests your presence in Hell for a party; the likes of which have not been seen since the last party that people had not seen the likes of.

Please BYOS (Bring Your Own Soul).

The purpose of this infernal shin-dig is to solidify your allegience to quality footwear, sparkly gemstones, and the Unholy Lord of Torment and Eternal Waking Nightmares.

When you arrive, please hang your soul neatly on the soul-rack located next to the Adolf Hitler Memorial Anus Stretcher. We will send your spirit out to be dry-cleaned and pressed. Don't worry, you will get it back at the conclusion of the party (or the end of time; whichever comes second).

Lastly, please bring a gift for your gracious host. He enjoys antiques, pork, dead letters, saltwater taffy, and small pointy things with attachments. If you decide to bring a small pointy thing, please do not connect the attachments as this will anger Lord Satan. He is fond of connecting the attachments himself.

Please RSVP by punching yourself in the face until your knuckles crumble...then begin slapping.

I am kind of split on what I think of the idea. Part of me thinks that it's a great idea and could benefit many Satanists around the world and the other part of me defaults to the fact that the CoS is not a lonely hearts club. I'd have to think on it harder to give a definitive yes or no.

What's up! Single black Satanic male looking for a single white Satanic female. Not because there aren't any Satanic black females, I just have jungle fever.

These are the requirements:

- must have a big butt. A brotha can't get enough of that ass.
- must shake it fast, watch yourself and show me what you're working with.
- must know how to cook the following foods:

fried chicken
collard greens
macaroni and cheese
yams
bbq ribs and hot links

- must be willing to walk around Compton, Watts and South Central.
- must be willing to go to the liquor store.
- no cuddling after sex. You must get your stank, sweaty ass off of me, walk to the kitchen and make me a sandmich.
- must hustle on the corner.
- must listen to gangsta rap.
- must know how to play dominoes and roll dice.

If you meet any of these requirements, please email me at:
satanicgangstapimp@dmail.com

Come on baby. Let's do this!

HS!


I'd be happy with just the sandwich after sex.

I'm not.

Nor was I mentioning bringing Satanists together as a community.

Just because you seek the company of like-minded individuals through a more efficient method than crossing your fingers, doesn't mean you are not an individual yourself.
It doesn't necessarily mean you are, either.

I don't believe Magus Gilmore wrote that essay to condemn socialization between Satanists.
And even if he did, what Satanist would blindly follow something simply because it was written?

To me, his essay was about those pseudo-Satanists who feel the need to be around other Human specimens that claim themselves, Satanists, in order to gain a sense of confirmation of their supposed identities.

In other words, dimwits that want to get together and do "Satanist stuff".

That is where it is an oxymoron; doing that "Satanist stuff" means putting forth the work and effort to accomplish personal goals, learn new skills, create new things, etc. Many (if not most) can't even get that far! For those who simply (albeit unconsciously) want to fit in some how, they aren't going to do that much work because...it's work! They just want to belong somewhere, and where they want to belong may have a lot to do with their nature/nurture disposition in life.
For the true Satanist, it IS life.

Some Satanists collaborate in order to achieve a common goal, but solely for the purpose of their own satisfaction (in my opinion).
But I digress...

I'm talking about ads for sexual fulfillment, and quite possibly relationships, if one is so inclined to seek out those who share their perspective of this existence.

Anyway:

So, you're talking about ads for sexual fulfillment and quite possibly relationships......

What's stopping ANYONE from finding that ANYWHERE?

Why here?

People are great big FAT LIARS! I hate to say this but I'll bet you dollars to donuts that many people on here aren't who they say they are.

Quite possibly Baptist High School kids doing 'a controlled study' on the Satanic EVIL MINDS' ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

I'm all for the idea of personal adds for meeting others. Name/Interest/Locaton, but if this is what an individual wants, can he/she simply not put it into their profile? If we begin to post adds discussing our sexual prefernces and/or what we are looking for in a potential personal relationship, wouldn't this make us look like a bunch of swingers dressed in satanic drag? What kind of image would we then be presenting to the masses?
I am inclinded to think this is perhaps best left to each persons personal website, such as like what we see at myspace.

I think the bottom line is this:

If two people or three or four want to hook up? If there is CHEMISTRY between two people on this forum? They'll find a way to make it happen personal ads or no.

I would just for some reason hate to see a personals section in the long run....I think it would make this site look 'cheap'.

This isn't a lonely hearts club.

I don't mind a sex ME UP CLUB but.....in the shadows so to speak. Private. Personal. Not.....personals.

My opinion only...

I'm neither for or against this idea. It's just an idea. Personally, I wouldn't use it, but my reasons have nothing to do with "the masses" or an image or people lying to me and hurting my wittle feewings.

So far, I find there to be more pros than cons. Most of what people have mentioned as to why they are against it has little or nothing to do with the productivity behind such a thing, but a concern about their egoes being subjected to shrinkage because they're looking for someone through a personal ad, and they seem to take that as an insult rather than a tool.

People lie, and will lie, regardless of where you go to find a fuck or mate, be it online or off.
To get past such a thing, personality tests could be utilized to filter the fibbers as much as possible, and as far as I can tell, that's more than what you'll get from first time face-to-face encounters. To get as far as a quiz could take you would require more time than if you could just click on the results for compatability.
Responsibility to the responsible. I can't imagine any Satanist needing their hand held, so I've no doubt that someone responsible enough to read a disclaimer and realize what you see isn't always what you get, will keep it in mind when opening a dialogue with someone who just might fit within their lifestyle.

It's an alternative. ;\)

Well, there you have it. Responsiblity to the responsible. If someone can't be responsible enough to find a partner then what can you say?

Nope, no Satanist needs their hands held nor do they need a dating service/personals section. (My opinion again).

Not SO! I strongly disagree. You can lie on those damned personality test.....BUT when you meet someone (even though you can lie there as well) a person CAN have a 'spidey sense' about them where they just know something isn't just right, or that the other person is full of BUNK!

You just can if you are gifted in the art of 'feeling people out'. Eve ponders 'The Satanic Witch'.

Sincerely, if one wants to go boff someone they WILL find a way without any test, without any screening, without any personals.

I think you're missing the point.
What you have stated doesn't indicate anything leading to it being a "bad" idea. Whether or not it is necessary for you (generally) is irrelavent.

For Me? I AM as YOU ARE a member of The Church of Satan.

Anything that looks 'cheap' or such reflects on the whole does it not?

I think it is a bad idea. As I HAVE STATED which maybe you are missing the point is that THIS IS MY OPINION ONLY.

I don't care what wavers one signs....opening up a personals section is opening up a can of worms.

TRUST ME the MEDIA will swarm on the CoS like a pack of Wolves if something bad were to happen as an end result of someone meeting someone HERE that isn't who they said they were. Bottom line.

I don't feel the CoS (and no I don't speak for the CoS) needs any bad publicity.

I am not missing any point and don't wish to debate this any further.

Just so you know... there is NO HOSTILITY in this post. I do want you to know that.

I think Satanist personals are a good idea, especially for those of us who are isolated or stuck in the bible belt. Of course it would be for more than just getting laid. Some of us would actually like to find mates who share or at least tolerate our beliefs.

Bible belt......pish posh!

You are only in the belt if you allow yourself to be. What the HELL is a BIBLE BELT? I live in INDIANA! CORN, CORN, CORN! A giant corn field with a race track smack damned in the middle of it. I GET LAID WHEN I WANT TO GET LAID!

ANYONE of worth can find a nice warm hole or a hard stiff one.(Hate to be crass) but it's the damned truth.

Looking for a life long Satanic mate? Hire a dating service!

This isn't a lonely hearts club.

I don't mind a sex ME UP CLUB but.....in the shadows so to speak. Private. Personal. Not.....personals.

My opinion only...


Exactly what I was previously saying, though I still think the security of in the shadows outweighes the lack there of on security for such a section period.

The only reason I see it as only a very slight good idea is for not having to keep secrets from one's own partner. That in my own personal opinion is the only plus, otherwise it truely isn't worth it. Actually taking the initiative and setting something up with someone in the shadows is just as effective, if not more effective.

A personals just for Satanists would be selfdefeating, and truly a wasted effort. ;\)

We're all adults here...there is crucified porn. Not sure of the technical term, but S&M using crosses as a prop. It gives new meaning to the expression "holy fuck".

There is only one reason I would not like to go through a Satanist Dating Service...trying to figure out what all those damn abbreviations mean:

SWM seeking SWF. Must follow LHP and be a LS...NOT a member of the FCoS. Interest in S&M a plus. Not really into DP, but am open to PP.

No sir...

Well, at least such a web-based system would not be restricted in the number of characters allowed, hence no acronyms - at least in theory. I never understood why people bother with them on the internet, unless it's sheer laziness.

One could always do what alt.com and a few other sites do - have a big checklist for people to note what they're into as they set up their profile, then have it display as normal words. Saves a lot of headaches and makes the database more easily searchable.

I am really stunned to see that if we were listening everyone, Satanism would become something for every Mr And Mrs Smith of the world.

This is the religion of the flesh, attraction and charisma, passion and presence. All this is among the REAL WORLD.

I would be for the service all though I would not use it. And on the bible belt thing. I own a tattoo shop in a tiny town with 13 churches. there is actually more seating in the churches than there are people in the town. I have had no problem finding a mate even in these conditions. The only downfall are all the damn cross tattoos I have to do every time some one gets trashed at the beer tent and dies on the way home! If I had a nickel for every time I had to do a memorial tattoo with a cross.....oh.. I charge a whole lot more than a nickel. never mind.

I'm curious as to how you made the logical connection between a lack of abilities to charm and using the internet to find dates...?

Even if I did enjoy going to many parties and interacting with a lot of people on a personal level in the "real world", the odds I would find somone amongst them that would suit me are very low.

Personals make it a lot easier to know who might suit your taste.

Now that one is able to speak to and see the person he is talking to over the internet, it certainly does take charm to make it work. The internet isn't so anonymous anymore.

To some internet dating service may be useful, to some it might not be useful.
I see no harm in this, and I think dismissing this kind of courtship has more to do with prejudice than with logic.

And anyhow- who gives a damn how this might look to "others"?
Everything one does can be misinterpreted, so what?
as long as it works...

I think people are making too big an issue out of something that shouldn't be such an issue.

I am not talking about a "if it works for some, fine, only the result is important"..

I just see that Satanism is in the real world. I just think that it is sad to see people even confessing that without internet, they would have went on with their religion, absolutely ignoring what was the Satanic Bible.. Bunch of Agnostics and so on..

There is no misinterpreted things here. it just makes me laugh to know that some are able to say "Oh I think I love you" on internet...And this by watching 1 pic and a so called "mighty connection"... That's only my opinion.

Now about the sex subject, well I can understand it, but still do not see the link with a presence, a charisma, which are Satanic traits. Words on the web never replace all this.

If such a connection does not bring to a meeting in the "real world", then yes- it is silly.
It might be a nice spice to "real world" sexual and romantic activity, but it should not replace it.

And again- since the internet offers one more than pictures and written letters these days, the options are much wider.

As to the issue of Satanism as an "internet-religion" instead of a real-world religion- well, we agree here completely... though I don't see what it has to do with the topic at hand.

I've used different personal ad websites to find someone to date. I've found that a lot of the women are single mothers. And others, you just shouldn't date. They've managed to get a bad enough reputation in their own circles, so they broaden their horizons and seek their new soon-to-be-Ex from a wider area. Many have had countless failed relationships, not lasting very long. You have to ask yourself, "Why?" It's best to talk for an extended period (at least 2 months) on a regular basis to figure out if the person is serious about themselves and having a real relationship, or they're just blowing smoke up your ass and looking for someone better to leave their current partner for. Be wary, lots of people in this world are dishonest. And like they say, all is fair in love and war.

If there were a "SatanDate" site, I suppose it would be nice. The possibility of finding someone who echos my own philosophies about interpersonal relationships and other things definitely intrigues me. It would have to be heavily policed to keep the nutjobs from wandering on in through the open front gate. And believe me, there's some really REALLY strange birds out there in the world, man! I came across a he/she through my blog who claimed to be the mistress of Satan and to be having the devil's baby. KOO-KOO, KOO-KOO!!!

Satanism is also about pragmatism.

Assabrah...I understand that there is a laguage, in Africa I believe, the details escape me...that has no nouns. When they describe something, they do so with verbs. A man who is running is called, simply, a running. If the same man is sleeping, he is called a sleeping.

I may not always agree with what you say, but I do agree with the spirit of the posts I have read of yours. You always remind us that Satanism is an action word. Pity we cannot call it Sataning.

I agree - I think that a "Satanic Personals" would look bad for The Church of Satan--It would imply that Satanists lack the skills to find mates on their own.

Not only that, but there are already websites that offer the "find love" service for a price (and I'm sure you get to create profiles on these sites so you can market yourself.)

Surely you must get a little glimpse of what people are like by viewing their posts and it's probably better than reading a thought through "ad" which is only meant to serve as a sort of pick-me-pick-me-thing. Either way you'll probably get to know someone interesting. Nothing to lose, right?

Personally, the idea of "viewing which males are available" would be a total turnoff. Like looking for a new pet.
