As to the original thread question?
First and most importantly, colding me in any manner will get you iggied. If I am in a good mood I will just ignore the request the first time but a second will most definitely get you iggied for being a pest.
Walk up to me to talk. But if I'm with my husband anything more than a hi is unrealistic as I am not about to get into a conversation with anyone if I am already lost in his eyes. And it should also be noted that if you are a friend of his and walk up to us as we are in a cuddle of any type and expect him to break it for a cuddle with you that will also get you iggied by me. It is rude, self-centered and inconsiderate. Want to hug him at that time then pm him saying 'hugs you'.
But laughter is the key. Make me laugh. Be creative. I've been known to message people who's profiles make me laugh. Which brings me to the last. A great profile. One that at least hints at who you are will get my attention. Creativity is a must. Dick pics are unimpressive and a turn off.
