I joined about a year ago with no success so dropped off for a while. Now I'm back hoping to find a gentleman to ride with. So what's the formula? I send messages to a few I'd like to ride with them but not one replies...yea or nay. Can someone give this middle-aged, divorcee some tips???
Welcome to the jungle LadynBlack. BK is a warm friendly site and you are sure to meet some great people here. I have made some wonderful friendships with people I would never have met any other way. That in itself is well worth the time spent here. Just be friendly, patient, and keep sending out your winks. You know... some guys are shy so like DD said, don't be afraid to send out a second one. I wish you luck in your search. Ride safe, ride hard and ride free.

Hiya LnB --
On behalf of all of BK may I be the one to say - "Nice to see youre back!" ( as well as your front!) =)
erm', I mean, heh, seriously though...
I think my best tip would be to simply keep the expectations to a minimum if at all. By that, I'm NOT suggesting you settle for anything other than what your heart desires, but instead just be yourself and look for friends.
What is it they say: "A watched pot never boils". So don't expect every potential connection to be "thee one"!
Or: Fewer expectations result in fewer disappointments.
If he is here, you'll find each other. Until then -- make some friends and have some fun!
Tx has a lot of men.
Bk has a lot of people. I got so many winks and emails at first--couldn't keep up and may have offended some by not answering. I'm not a paid memeber yet, so I haven't been able to email unless someone emails me first. I've still been making up my mind to see if I am going to join this site. I do want to say, I've already had a blast in the last few weeks. Met 3 people live time. Made friends with some. Love reading and posting here.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. On advice columns for on-line dating it's been stated that you give 2 weeks for any response. Then, email or wink again, just in case something did mess up and they never received or saw the first message.
what you do is going riding two up with a friend and some good passenger platforms you know the kind you really can leap from.
So when you see the guy riding down the highway that you want just have your motorcycle chauffer pull up quietly beside him if he winks at you take your leap of faith and nab him. He will be so busy keeping the bike up that by the time he gets control he will have grown to like you and will let you stay onboard because you are so daring.
Now I wouldn't recommend it if he is riding with someone already cause that is just plumb dangerous.
Welcome aboard again...and good luck. Just have fun and see what happens.
