It’s none of my business, really, but I sometimes send notes to submissive men who I think are shooting themselves in the foot.
Re your post:
When you ignore messages from newbies like me you are probably missing out on the potential of a great sub…. [etc.]
Your profile picture is likely to put off 99.9% of women. Honestly, when you are contributing in a thread or sending an email, you are, at the same time, screaming, “Look… LOOK… I have a thing… a THING STUCK UP MY BUTT!!!”.
It is really offputting.
As I said, what you do is none of my business, but please believe that I am trying to help because your actual post was sensible and reasonable, and if you are being ignored, I would not be surprised if your profile picture contributes to it.
** I would note here that said recipient thanked me for my input, asked for my advice on what might be more appropriate, and immediately changed his profile picture… yay, wins!!
