    If you've reached this website from Profiles or LocalSexting (or any of our even smaller sites), you might find yourself asking, "why the new website?" We'll address this here and hopefully this will resolve the question for you.

    Profiles has had the same loyal regulars for a long time, but has been stagnant, and shrinking, for some time. We have a lot of server resources dedicated to it for it to do very little, and the software the site runs involves some third-party packages that are pretty hard to maintain and require frequent manual intervention. LocalSexting has a healthy number of site users, but its chat never got very popular, beyond a few regulars.

    We do not have any plans to change the LocalSexting website itself. Profiles, on the other hand, can have all its popular functions, like confessions, tributes, and friends (through the "follow" feature) served in a way that works similarly, but runs better on the hardware that we have, through OnlineFreeChat's forum software.

    Rather than have the chats get quieter and lonelier, we decided to combine them, to make things more lively, more interesting, more populated. In fact, we've seen most Profiles regulars already come over, and a few I recognize from LocalSexting, so it's not really like starting over at all. You could think of it as the same website, since it's the people that make the community, running different software at a different address. Now, though, you get to meet some new friends along the way.

    We're still here!
