One of these days, whatever we do to harm other people will come home to us in one way or another. The people that complain are the ones that have been fooled into thinking it was "dating", or fooled themselves into thinking of it that way when it really wasn't presented that way. You protect yourself against someone "stealing" the bases (the players) by paying attention to the clues and not letting yourself be fooled by a false play. If someone ignores the signs, or prefers to totally skip any observance of the "players" game skills/behavior before dancing around the bases with them- then it's just as much their fault as it is the "players".
Part of the game of baseball, one of the ways to "score" is to "steal" base (or home) by fooling the other player into thinking what you were doing was something other than what it really was. When you meet someone at an event that you might be interested in, you have the opportunity to pre-screen their game skills (watch them in action) for as long as you want before deciding if your interest might be real.

I received a message today from a collaboration of two friends who are wondering about the stages of a relationship. Does a home run in a relationship mean a sexual score or obtaining a committed, meaningful relationship?
In all seriousness, though, is it not this business of trying to score exactly what is wrong with the dating scene and what a lot of people complain about?
Hard to imagine the mindset of married people on a site like this who are lying through their teeth just for the purpose of scoring on the sly.
This is the first breakdown (which you posted) I've known about of the precise definitions of those terms.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...
A scorer is nothing more than a low-life who is hurting one person after another.
I'm a firm believer in the concept of reaping what we sow. But-- it's up to the "catchers" to be observant about how the game is being played.
And do the men's "notches on the bed post" also equate to us women's "chewed gum being placed up on the bed posts" LOLI would think a woman would have a special necklace that she would add stones to make the necklace longer to record her sexual conquests?
If you are out there I have a rock................precious stone to add to your collection!
