I think a good commentary helps and then this is backed up by emails
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
I think some meaningful commentary at least tells me that the person has put some thought into what they want out of the community and out of the massage. It is very important to me.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
Yes a good profile gives me an idea of what the person likes and what they are looking for and I put as much as possible in my profile so they know what I can do for them.
No: people can lie so a commentary is meaningless to me
I prefer to find out with emails and phone comversation

Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
Gives me an idea of the type of massage the person is looking for or what issue he/she is trying to correct
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
I don't think the profile should be just a "sales tool" as I prefer to think of it more as an introduction. Assuming the commentary is true until proved otherwise, its there helping us to find out a bit about each other and see what interests or needs we may share. Offline in the "real world", the vast majority of massages I've given or received have been with someone who was introduced or recommended by mutual acquaintances.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
Someone who takes the time to let you know who they are, is showing that they would take the time to connect with you. The massage is as much a part of connecting the body as it is the mind. Feeling that connection makes the experience so much greater.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
I like to read the comments so I can make a judgement.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
Yes...Always. The commentary is more important than the photos, primary and secondary. However, all, taken together, make up the whole picture and lend to the decision whether to contact or not.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
I'm not going to agree to an exchange with someone without getting to know a little about them and what they hope to get out of an exchange. Commentary is a good way to start that conversation. Without it the conversation has to take place in emails which can be time consuming. Also some meaningful commentary tells me that the person is serious about exchanging. Blank commentary sends the message that the person isn't all that serious about an exchange.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
The information given can help you decide whether to contact them or not
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
I want to know something about the other person. If a member doesn't leave any commentary, it's unlikely I'll reach out to them.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
What use is their profile if it says nothing about them and probably doesn't even have a picture. Blank face male looking for female...UGH! Click hide.

No: people can lie so a commentary is meaningless to me
Most important is the PHOTO .  Also seems to be what's always missing.  That's understood by this company.  Women are hard to get,  so they are holding back, thus the company sells lots of tokens to men trying to get a visual of who they may want to meet up with. Why,  because a picture is worth a 1000 words.
No: as long as they match my search criteria it's enough
People can say what ever makes them look good...as long as you are willing to submit to my request and remain a gentlemen at all times...it's how you act that will leave a lasting impression.

I get a very clear sense of a person from their commentary, which helps me decide if and how to go forward. But a brief commentary can also be fine so long as there is a detailed email exchange afterwards.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
Profiles should be rejected if they don't have a meaningful commentary. It would help sort out the genuine people from the time wasters. A photo is nice too, but I understand why some would not want to have a picture on their profile

A picture can lie but commentary cn lie more.

Need to meet someone in person. They might make up some of the information to sound good to others.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
Meaningful Commentary (More About Me) makes communication much easier since common interests can be immediately addressed as well as knowing boundaries. Without it, one can enter a frustrating game of 20 questions. If "Yes meaningful commentary AND Yes a primary photo OR photo gallery" had been a choice, I would have gone with that as I feel photos are essential.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
You can get some idea of the type person by what they say in the commentary.

i dont know thats why i say maybe but maybe i am wrong
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
In your commentary please tell me what you want so I can determine if we are on the same page. Put some effort into this. I did. If all you write is, "I love massage but I can't afford it," I will probably not be as inspired to contact you as if you're open and show me how you communicate by saying what you want to share. There is some vulnerability in trading massage. A meaningful commentary helps establish trust.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person

Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
helps to know who you are meeting. Hopefully there is some honesty.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
The specifics of the commentary are helpful, but in addition the command of the English language, punctuation, alliteration, and vocabulary all help identify traits of the writer. PLUS, it is a certainty that people who can't take the time to tell a bit about themselves aren't *really* interested in moving forward.

Nothing is certain - but it does need to invoke a beginning.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
A commentary helps Gage what and whom I am about to connect with. A personal live chat would be helpful also. Pictures are nice, but live interaction prior to meeting is always cooler.

I feel that a new member may wish to give ME a try before adding commentary. When I see this, I usually contact the member and recommend that he/she includes something and can always adjust it later.
No: people can lie so a commentary is meaningless to me
It's the internet! Folks have a tendency to use their internet height, weight and body type, instead of their 'real life' stats. ... And don't get me started on the 10, 15 or 20 year old photographs.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
I use the commentary an an initial indication of the person's personality. The more personality that appears in the commentary the greater the likelihood that someone is going to be interested in an exchange. Many people are as shy as you and will find some warmth or humor to be a comforting suggestion that the exchange will be pleasant and rewarding.

Telling me nothing is actually telling me a lot about your intentions. If you want to my keep my interest, you're better off telling me something about yourself. Besides, I've already extended you the same courtesy. Reciprocity is the foundation of any worthwhile relationship.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
I like to see a photo but the commentary tells me more of what to expect and the intentions of the person.

I've actually blocked a couple of people but I've had great exchanges with many people overall.

Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
I like to know something about a prospective massage exchange partner and the way they write their commentary does say something about them. Yes, there are liars on here but I don't dwell on that. I figure you just have to screen past them to find the ones who are serious about meeting.

I love it when a guy without a profile pic asks to see a pic, hmmm is that double standards?
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
People do lie, but what's the point, if you exchange they will be found out. I take everything at face value, so I do mostly go by the commentary although a profile photo is always good too
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
Lack of disclosure in one's commentary tells me that they are not really interested, so why should I bother? If I can't learn something about a person in 10-15 seconds of reading, I hide their profile and move on. ('Hide' is a nice feature by the way!) I've met many wonderful people on this site. But I won't waste my time if a member can't put forward a minimal effort to tell me something about themselves.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person

Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
The profile is important, but having a real interest in meeting other people and exchange massage goes farther, many people have nice profiles and photos and everything and never bother to answer to emails o requests....
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
The genuin intention can be known by the words.and to be obvious makes both parties know limitations that leads to being comfortable and relaxed.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
I currently find that people lie to get past limitations set in here. I understand the need to run a clean site, clean of riff raff. But they will never get rid of them. Best to allow more open commentary and allow the profanity filter or personal choice decide if they want to contact. Block works for most sites.

It only needs a few words, but taking the time to do that shows a genuine interest. I understand people have time constraints but if I can find the time to write anybody can!
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
The way they write can be instructive - and you often get an instinct as to whether there's likely to be any chemistry between you. You can gain a lot from reading between the lines.
Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person

Yes: a meaningful commentary tells me something about the person
A commentary tells you something about how a person wants to appear and be seen, the image they want to project.
