    So, most of us here have some experience with this site and others.. like gay.com, Adam4Adam, Manhunt (which I've never seen) and others. What I'd like you to do is rank sites you been on on a 1-10 scale

    10: Quality, fantasic, very helpful and speaks to you individually. The men on the site are worth chatting with and the subject material is interesting


    5: Fair: Mediocre

    0-1: Trash: You give it the thumbs down (for reasons you may want to list).

    List each site name and give em a score.
    ____________________________________________________
    Me:

    RealJock: 9.5-10: Excellent
    Definitely better than anything I have seen. The men here are a cut above other sites.

    Gay.com: 5-5.5 They do have some good information if you choose to look, but the main reason to go there for many is for a hookup.

    Adam4Adam: 2 I think its pretty trashy. Its a sex site strictly.

    I give RealJock a 9. The forums are great.

    Manhunt is a 4. Its good for its purpose (sex) but it can get a little too trashy.

    Adam4Adam gets a 3... This site was too much for me. When I first accepted being gay I went on this site. Someone said he wanted to fuck my man pussy and I deleted my profile.

    Dudesnude, I will give a 7.5 because of the pictures and video clips

    i would agree w/the above. realjock is bar far the best. i'd give it a 9.


    gay.com - 6

    out.com is another site i'll frequent. but usually just to look at the "hot guy of the day". some of the guys are so cheesy. a few are hot. and the comments can be pretty funny. i'd give it a 5.

    Realjock is definately the best gay website. I give it a solid 10. The second best gay website is Outsports.com and that site gets a 9. Fitness-singles has a good gay website with its men searching for men. That site deserves a rating of 8. The rest of the gay websites that I know of like spandexguys and ChrisGeary.com are mediocre to lousy so they get ratings ranging from 3 to 5.

    After I met my Significant Other online (at gay.com), I've pretty much given up the gay sites. However, I'm trying to get healthier, and I don't count RealJock as a hookup site at all. The guys here are supportive of the quest for health, and seem to be smarter and less "smarmy" than other sites. If I were an advertiser, the RealJock community is who I'd be going after (depending, of course, on my product!)

    Frankly, the tone (heheh, look I made a little pun) is much higher on RealJock than any other site I can recall from the old days. A solid (heheh, another pun) 10.

    Hookups were always pretty easy on craigslist, though!

    Outpersonals.com - 1 TRASH, almost all the profiles are fake profiles the site creates to bulk up membership.

    Guys4Men.com - 4 They keep saying it's free. And then you find out that it requires you pimping the site or paying a set fee in order to access members from outside your country. And I just am not attracted to my countrymen icon_sad.gif Also the focus is sex, and that was the site where I got my two rudest messages ever. I joined this when I was only 18.

    Admittedly I've only been on those two for like 2 weeks each respectively. Heh. Just checking out the goods.

    RJ certainly a 10! icon_biggrin.gif

    Manhunt And Adam Trashy? most people saying this are the ones whos inboxs had tumble weeds blowing around in them.

    Im opposite. I spend much of my time on Manhunt and Adam this site is nothing but mostly national. I get alot of hits here also but its with people from so far away the most we do is send a few msgs back and forth. Your Hot, No Your Hot, No Your Hot. bla bla. Im more into makin ish happen sorry.

    I give Manhunt a 9

    I give Adam a 7 for only having three spaces for photos.

    And Real Jock a 6

    For removing the top btm verse categories. ( Now I gotta ask.) thanks RJ


    The forums and verified Idea are great though I gotta say.

    I think it depends on what you're looking for... RJ is great for non-hookup information/relationships/fun but A4A is great if you're trying to meet up with someone in a specific location and xtube is great if you just want to be "alone"! LOL

    Real Jock = 9... I really like the site and the guys.

    Adam4Adam = 7... It's OK but same group of people and no general discussion area.

    Dlist - haven't used enough to rate.

    Don't subscribe to any of the pay sites. yet

    RJ - the best I've seen - for friends / communication - not hookups

    Dudesnude - Good - the section for fitness minded guys is best

    MH - Is fine for hookups

    DList - Just getting a look at this - but it seems to be a top site

    Connexion - I'm rarely on there - but some friends like it a lot

    I am a big fan of Connexion myself. Like this site, it has some good quality people over there.

    As for gay.com, manhunt, and outpersonals, I have had an account on each in the past, but I grew tired of the hook up scene, so with my changing of ways, I deleted those accounts and put one up on here.

    The hookup scene not on realjock? Ok sure. The romanically challenged- so quick to lable people who enjoy sex for sex's sake trashy. Quality? Self delusionally thinking there above those that dont carry the same viewpoint.

    So far Realjock gets a 10
    The forums are great, it's a clean site, the focus is not on sex and it encourages positive interaction between men. If two guys meet through here the context is much healthier if they choose to pursue a relationship than if they meet through manhunt. The message is always clear here and even though the focus is on health and fitness, I've found great acceptance towards those who aren't athletic or in great shape.
    Overall, this site has focus and a good message!

    Manhunt #1 trashiest site!
    Why? Because it utilizes reverse psychology, preys on people's insecurities and sums people up by their ethnic background, top/bttm, meet now or later, HIV+ or HIV- and doesn't encourage positive interaction. You can see if somebody has looked at your profile, read and/or deleted your email without reading it, etc. This causes men to get trapped in a cycle of suspicion and doubt. They also send conflicting messages, advertising bareback porn and then safe sex messages. They also don't have safe sex preferences as an available profile option. This is problematic because there are many men who don't want to engage in sexual acts with guys who bareback. Manhunt also doesn't review the content of people's profiles well enough. I've seen profiles on that site that were more like advertisements against certain members, encouraging others to contact them to get the person's screen name in order to harass en mass. It's filled with arrogant players, fakes, liars and some of the most lonely and sad examples of men I've ever seen. To top it off, Manhunt is the most active GLBTI site on the internet.
    For all those reasons I deleted my account off that site.

    MULATTOMACHO saidThe hookup scene not on realjock? Ok sure. The romanically challenged- so quick to lable people who enjoy sex for sex's sake trashy. Quality? Self delusionally thinking there above those that dont carry the same viewpoint.




    "Romantically challenged?? Interesting way to describe someone who might (imagine the thought) want to improve their health, nutrition, mode of living in addition to sex! And your premise is faulty... no one is labeling people who go here or there as "trashy"..
    only the sites.. and if you want we can call them "lesser quality" sites if you wish.

    I think Adam is trash because it is strictly a sex site... period. When you go there, the ads aren't clean and when you read a profile what you see is a dick.. not a face in many cases. Sure, 99% of us here like and enjoy sex... but, there is more to life than just... and thats why I'm here...

    This is by far the best gay site around. Good members, good forums, good workout plans and not totally dedicated to the pursuit of dick. icon_lol.gif

    If you need a website to encorage positvie interaction between you and the people you meet. Please Seek mental help Immediately! It doesnt matter where or how I meet someone, I treat people with respect, it doesnt matter what site. Whos judge to decide whats positve for someone else. Subjective comments run rampant in here. Anyway the proof is in the numbers. Its the #1 most visited site, Manhunt must be doing something right- Its one of many connection sites and a way to cut through all the fluff I wouldnt ask in a bar. MANHUNT is a good site and they leave you to be responsible for yourself in the long run, thats where it lies.

    If you like the whole courting thing, or are pissed at the amount of guys just enjoying sex. This site is an option for you then. But dont get the wrong Idea, the same stuff happening over at manhunt is the same stuff happening on here. Just without the porn adds, some forum topics- and the imagined definetion your a jock because your on a site called real jock.

    RJ gets a big 10 from me!

    Gaydar gets a 7, there are some good guys, but some just want to fuck really.

    Gay.com gets a 2, it is basically just a hookup site. Just serves for some eye candy.

    Gay Youth Corner (thegyc) gets an 8, has quite alot of good information and forums that helped me out quite a bit.
