Why Are There No Ads in the Forumosa Personals Classifieds?

Let us know what you think about Forumosafieds. Questions, problems and new ideas are all welcome.

Postby ImaniOU » 30 May 2006, 02:11

My ideas of why there's not much traffic on the forumosa personals:

1) Many of us know each other in real life. How awkward is it to put your hopes and dreams of love in a place where people you might hang with can see it?

2) There aren't many female posters on this site. It's a bit lopsided in that way.

3) A majority of the posters on this site are either married or in long-term relationships so they have no need to post a personal ad.

As for me, relationships are on a far back burner. Finding a job is occupying most of my thoughts (although finding a local husband might become my only viable option the way things are going) so even if I hadn't thrown my towel in a year ago, I'm too preoccupied with trying to manage to stay in Taiwan legally.
