What's with all the blokes on Facebook & Twitter etc., especially from middle/far east, wishing you things like good night, good morning, and happy birthday almost every day and all year round?  

Doesn't it creep you out a bit?

I say glamour models because I don't generally see it with other models, I'm presuming it's some sort of chatup line combined with a serious culture clash & misunderstanding of what's creepy/not creepy.  Bizarre.

And further to the middle/far east thing.... why do they tag girls in seemingly random images?

But surely these guys are their friends, aren't they?

I say good night and good morning to my friends all the time, as I was taught it is politeness to do so; though I must confess that I don't use TwitFace etc. to find friends so maybe my friends are different from (glamour) models' friends.

As for the Middle East dimension, if a specific 'culture' prevents females making friends with males it's not really surprising that some of these males might look to make friends with females who are not constrained in the same way as those who are closer to them.

One thing I forgot to mention is the emphasis these men place on referring to these women as 'princess'.  Surely you don't refer to all your female friends as princess in every sentence?  (again, it's very creepy and a bit nudge-nudge-wink-wink when coming from someone from this country)

As the traditional form of address for females where I come from is 'hen' or 'doll', as Ella and Joe in turn refer to Mary in this clip, princess strikes me as quite sweet really.

I mostly get guys talking to me about various TV programmes I watch.

Although there are people I have blocked so the only way they can "contact" me is to post replies to everything on my page. I don't get any notifications though so I leave them to it.

If I have a disproportionate amount from Asia that's because I've met people through visiting Asia and learning Mandarin. None of them call me princess. They never tag me in random images.

hahaha - i WISH that was the weirdest thing I got on twitter lol And also just to point out it is men from ALL over the world and english guys are equally as creepy sometimes - what you have to remember in the glamour and adult industry is that these people pay the bills so best to just to smile and accept the creepiness because they are going to be buying the content

Twitter is less of a problem. Facebook.... Ugh. Not at all confined to Middle Eastern blokes at all (not sure where you got that), Though I will say I do get a lot of random Pakistani/Bangladeshi/Turkish/Indian dudes who see my personal profile (not associated with Amber) and puresly from my first name and photo they can see I am female so I used to get lots of stupid messages, before I locked down privacy on it. What I didn't not realize before Facebook is that it seems 95% of the male population appear to be sadly lacking in vocabulary beyond, 'hi' or sometimes slight variations. I swear it's an epidemic. my inbox is filled with: Hi hi Hi Hi Amber Hiiiii Hey hey.... Amber Some get really aggressive and escalate quickly from 'hi' to telling me what a rude slag I am. I also had one British gentleman who seemed rather concerned that I don't know the time of day it was, 'morning', 'afternoon', 'evening', and 'night' went on for weeks! I can assure you all I can be a bit ditzy, but do know how to tell time! As for tagging thing, I don't always think it peoples fault as half the time think it's just spam bots

From my observations it's a bit like an arms race (metaphorically speaking). I was talking to a young lady last week who was supposed to be working for me, she had 2500 friends; within days she had over 3000 so-called friends. Why do people feel the need to add people they don't even know? By the way the young lady failed to turn up.

I'm too old for this, trying to gather as many friends as possible using tactics like, I'm a lesbian and this is my lesbian partner. Then there's the one where they show a bit of boob, deliberately, and then moan when Facebook suspends them knowing full well that their friends will rally round. That's just 2 attention seeking tactics I've noticed. I could mention many more....

Probably out partying with her 3000 friends.

The TwitFace sites are geared to helping people who don't have many proper friends out in the real world. A not insignificant proportion of internet models have self-worth issues, as we frequently see in the popcorn-generating Drama Llama forum posts and sometimes even in  profile notes, so to them TwitFace sites are probably the sort of places where they can boost their perceived self-worth by collecting loads of 'friends'.

I would rather have a handful of proper friends than a thousand internet 'friends', which is why I state on my profile notes on another portfolio site; "Your best chance of becoming my 'buddy' is to work with me or get drunk with me - just asking me to be your friend probably won't work".
