I’m getting rather tired of people saying “yes let’s meet” or something similar.
If I’m not your type of wrestler, say so - I won’t be offended.
If you want particular type of opponents, put your preference in your profile - saves everyone a lot of time!
For info, I’ll meet anyone who is respectful and understanding that I can’t meet at the drop of a hat - we all have lives away from wrestling (although I do question some guys who seem to take it far too seriously).
I’ve taken time to build up a decent list of past opponents - the vast majority I’ll happily meet again.
Sorry if this sounds aggressive, arrogant or negative - but I’m tired of people cashing cheques they don’t want to honour.
To the member concerned,
Thanks for doing this video and allowing them to incorrectly label it.
Thanks to your stupidity, respected U.K. members are considering, (or already have) left this site as they don’t want U.K. be associated with what non-wrestlers would see as a “fetish”.
I’m not going to name him - as I’ll be the one who gets punished by moderators - but I wanted to thank him personally for his selfish and ridiculous act.
Firstly, I am NOT going to directly name anyone - as this will get me suspended, and MF is a great site that I do log onto several times a week - but I felt I wanted to post something a little more personal about myself - and might give other members food for thought about how they select meets and behave towards each other.
I do, like a lot of guys, have an issue about my self-confidence. It's been there since my childhood - and I often mask it with wit, being brash or just coming across as confident.
Since joining this site, over a year ago - I have met some truly amazing guys - and rematched some I had met from other sites.
A few of the guys I have met, I now consider friends - we have met numerous times and there is always a friendly rivalry when we meet - just to have a good old wrestle and enjoy ourselves.
I have found out - and I wont say who or how - that some guys, some from UK, some from abroad, that I have wanted to meet have visited the UK - I offered a match and the response was always along the lines of "I am only here for a couple of days to see a friend" - so I accepted that.
Now I find out that during the time, they have managed to meet people during that trip..... so how am I supposed to feel?
Would it not be easier to say "I have meets booked, and I don't think I have the time?"
ALL the guys I am talking about are well-respected members, with numerous past opponents - and the past recommendations are all glowing - so I have trouble understanding why they behave in such a manner.
Now this isn't a beef about our EU friends, far from it - as I've had my hospitality and trust abused by guys from England too - thankfully that has been sorted and although I am not likely to meet some of them again - there is one I would still like to meet, and he knows that.
So come on guys - say what you mean, and if you're going to lie - at least cover your tracks convincingly enough that you cannot get found out!
I know that we're all on here for different reasons, some of us just want to talk about wrestling, some of us actually want to meet to wrestle - box - fight.
There is, to my dismay, more people posting suggestive or erotic photos, that really don't have a place on this site, in my humble opinion.
I could name the worst offenders, one of whom is known for being more of a director in unauthorised filming rather than actually wrestling - but I won't as it's against terms of service.
Yes I've turned off the X rated pictures, but it doesn't stop them appearing on photo verification and maybe, as the community we are, request that the man of mystery, Admin, work on a way of trying to encourage members not to attempt to post them?
Is this a fighters site, a dating site or a fetish/hookup site after all?
"Join meetfighters", he said "full of decent guys who don't mess you about!"
So I did.....
Yeah ok, I've met a few awesome guys on here - that I won't deny.
I've also been messed about by guys who have been very active on here with glittering recommendations!
Changing minds minutes before leaving home or costing me money in various ways - either accommodating their requests or arranging hotels that I can't get refunded.
Said people then don't even have the decency to stay in touch!
I've even held out olive branches to new guys to break the 0 past opponents mark - now I know why it's at 0 for so long!
I tried to organise a friendly group meet in Manchester and shocked at the arrogance and downright damned rudeness of some that I asked to join (despite great recommendations about how nice they are!) so I've got to the point of trying to decide whether to stay in here or whether to put away my speedo and call it a day!
To those I've fought and want to stay in touch, you have my contact details should I disappear - to those who have behaved so badly - shame on you!
