Don't you ever worry when OLD that a lot of the men might be the horrible ex partners of MNetters?

I find myself looking at profiles on OLD and thinking "oh he might be the one there was a thread about earlier" or "hmm, I bet he's the one that that poor woman on mn had trouble with" or "ooh perhaps this is the man whose partner posted on mn about finding him on dating sites".

It's hard enough as it is without me now factoring in extra (and probably completely irrelevant) obstacles! But all the awful men on here must end up somewhere - and knowing my luck, they'll all be on the OLD sites I try!

grinsome of them probably are, if only we could leave reviews!
Some poor woman is going to have my ex.
I just hope I can find less of a dickhead next time.

Oh dear lol! Maybe we could have a thread where when anyone's considering someone on OLD we post their profile pic here to check if they're one of the known wrong'uns.

@SoulofanAggron there's a Facebook group for that already!

@MrsDaveGrohl78 there is??? What's it called?!

Is there really MrsDaveGrohl?!

Yes, wouldn't it be useful if we could put pictures of potential dates on here and see if mnetters recognised them as their exes! Kind of like police "Wanted - have you seen this man? Do not approach if you do, he's armed and dangerous". But more like "Unwanted - do not date this man. He's dishonest and useless".

Yeah it’s called Official Prick Advisor, I’ve posted in there after awful dates etc, there’s been men that are unbelievably bad and they’re all named so we know who to avoid! Some of the girls are quite young so they’re advised about Claire’s Law etc. A great group!

Yes I have seen my abusive xh on POF pretending he wants a relationship. He doesn't. He wants to abuse you and steal your money. But he wears the mask

It certainly crosses my mind!!

A few years back when I was in New York, a friend told me of an app where you could 'review' your exes and hook-ups. Called something like Lulu, if I remember correctly?

Can't work out whether it's a good or a bad thing that it never made it to England...
