    What the hell does chill mean? I see it in a lot of profiles? Can it mean they just generally don't care about things and they don't get emotional over anything?

    I like when people get happy or upset and show it. Why are guys acting like they are so drama free just because it may be "the thing" or it's masculine

    "I'm a chill dude" means "nobody likes me offline but I'll try to make you think they do so you'll talk to me."

    Everyone here is "chill, laid-back, masculine". Lucky us!

    I'm not saying no one is chill on this site. But chillness is way over-represented. I take that description with a grain of salt.

    I think that it is more like what Cold is saying. The guys are saying that they are chill and not high-strung. I have a couple of gay friends that are high-strung and freak the fuck out over minute shit. One friend in particular threw a party for his 29th birthday. All of his friends from D.C. to New York to L.A. came for the party. He blew up and threw everybody out of his apartment because one girl was late arriving because she was finishing some intricate dish that he wanted on the menu.

    I say i'm chill because i'm generally lazy and passive, it's rare for me to get emotional over most things. But it does happen on occasion, and then people act shocked lol

    Rather have chill than "drama queen". In fact, although many guys here don't like it when they read "laid back" on a man's profile, I long for actually meeting one.

    Case in point:

    Drama Queen: "Well I didn't get the job."

    Me: "Wow. They were supposed to call you today and let you know. So they called you and told you already?"

    DQ: "No."

    Me: "Well it's only 10:30 in the morning. How do you know you didn't get the job?"

    DQ: "Well, I just have a feeling. They should have called me already if I got the job."

    Me: "Ok, thanks for wasting my time."


    *very exhausted here*

    ...Um, grammatically speaking (if grammar is even relevant here), shouldn't it be "chilled" (an adjective -- ie. a chilled drink) as opposed to "chill" (a verb -- ie. to chill a drink)? It's sort of like saying "I'm a run" when you really want to tell people "I'm a runner". I'm just wondering....icon_rolleyes.gif

    Whether they are truly "chill" or not is debatable, but it means that "I don't get hyper-emotional over every tiny thing."

    I go for a healthy mix of chill/drama. Drama happens and you have to deal with it, and the "masculine" thing to do is to face it head on. But, drama is goddamn exhausting, and so it's nice to avoid it when you can.

    It's a slang term to use the word "chill" as an adjective.

    As another example: "That guy is whack.".

    "chill" and "laid back" actually turn me off when I read them in a profile. It's so trite and .. really, do you really have to say that? They rank right up there with photos showing that 2 finger sign.

    My experience has tought me that describing yourself in a gay profile as "chill" means you aren't into the gay lifestyle, in the closet or on the DL.. Seems like most of them are like that.

    A simular phraise "looking for guys to chill with" often really translates as "I'm really looking to hook up descretly NSA but can't write that because it sounds too gay and sleezy".

    But I agree with the earlier comment that however it's used it always sounds douchey....

    my least favorite: "i'm masculine"
    and then you hop in a video chat and they've got tweezed eyebrows, and a perpetual gayface smirk

    "Chill" as a self-descriptor is indicative of a lack of self-awareness and of self-expression. Or it can be a cover-up for a person of little substance, probably self-absorbed, and unwilling to compromise or care for another.

    While no one wants someone who makes a mountain out of a mole hill, I personally don't want someone whose personality is best suited for a mortuary either.

    When someone puts 'Not into drama' in their profile, who does he think that is going to keep away? Very few think of themselves as a drama queen. How many people have you met that said, "I'm really into drama. Can't get enough of it." Stop wasting your profile with phrases 'Not into drama', 'Looking for masculine guys', or 'I'm a chill dude'. You just become one of the thousands of profiles saying the same thing and although you have words in your profile it is really the equivalent of empty profiles without any information. The best profiles emphasis your individuality.

    chill means not getting upset over a couple words in someones profile, no matter how many times you have seen them.
