Status: Not Interested

658533_90667552

Buzznet is not my all time favorite place for storing photos online (I just keep a few "family photos" of the cats in there), but they did score some points with me in having, I noticed only today, a "Not Interested" option under Status.

At most sites, you get the usual choices between married, single, divorced or whatever and I'm often tempted to select married (call me old fashioned, but I don't like to lie, even on social networking sites), because if I truthfully select single or divorced, a flurry of lovesick Romeos wants to be my "friend."

Often I've resorted to spelling it out on profiles, but that makes no difference, whereas, I'm sure this is a field people would be able to search on at most sites, so you would HOPE that those looking for other single members would not even see the profiles of the irrelevant and "Not Interested" ones in their searches.

Whilst, I know some people use social sites as dating sites, it's wrong to assume that single always means "and looking." It would be nice if more sites added a "Not Interested" option for those of us who are "Not Interested".

It would be nice if there was some sort of equivalent that worked in the real world too, but that's a whole other story / rant for some other day! :)
