    So here's the deal.

    You try your best to be a good honest person.
    You don't do drugs, you don't cheat, lie or steal.
    You have children to raise and understand the importance of setting an example for them.
    You set up honorable profiles that have scruples and have been set at a certain standard.
    You even go as far as making sure those profiles have a great discription of you are and explain what is in your heart.
    Your status is set at Single in hopes of meeting the person that you would like to spend the rest of your life with.....

    Then, here's the kicker.
    You find a profile with a guy who has his asshole shown in his profile with if dick all out there for the World Wide Web to see.
    Some of his pics are XXX-rated that make him look like a total scum whore and his mama would be SO ashamed.... you look at his relationship status and it says: "Partnered"
    WTF!!!!.... just sayin' and wondering... any thoughts?

    Welcome to the World Wide Web

    I always wondered what this gay thing was like before internet. I watched the documentary on craigslist (24 hours on craigslist, on hulu.com) the other day. It's really interesting to think that everything is totally anonymous now.

    You can technically be anything or anyone you want without any repercussions. You can live out your fantasies all through this little keyboard if you want. Is this a good or a bad thing? No one's to judge.

    Speaking of judging, tone it down a notch. It comes off as bitter that you're single and the guy you're berating is not.

    Your profile is as significant as the guy who's ass and cock is shown for all the wrld to see. Everyone is in search for something and the Internet is another means of finding it and who he is now might not be who he is 5yrs frm now. Your profile no matter how honorable you think it is just might read to someone else as snark and arrogant. All you have to do is click on til you find something that's more appealing. Perhaps a guy in a suit and tie?

    *side note*
    Just because someone has naked pics does not mean their not a good honest person, they do drugs, they cheat, lie or steal. Have scruples and or standards. etc....

    Sorry you misunderstood that I think guys who go full monty on the web are losers, cheat, lie or steal. I don't think that.

    No, I'm not bitter, just frustrated.

    I want to start laughing...
    Not because I think it is funny. but because I was there 15 yrs ago.
    and think back about how Irritated & frustrated I was.
    I had just gotten a divorce and my daughter was 10...
    I so understand.

    The real reason that I think this is funny is because what you posted was the exact statement that I made with to my sister then and her response was this:

    First of all.... STOP!
    Just because someone says he's "Partnered" doesn't mean a DAMN thing.
    You know that!!!!
    You don't need anyone to tell you that.

    There are so many people, Straight, Homo, Single, Partnered, Male & Female
    who do the same thing. Those people are not anyone that you or I would want to be with, or their partners.
    Leave those people out of the equation. They don't count.

    Besides, there is one thing that you may not be taking into account by checking out this guys profile. If he is getting some action through his profile.. Would it be the same kind of action you would want?
    Do you want action or a relationship???

    Enjoy the search for the right person and stop stewing over the shit you know you wouldn't want anyway.

    blunt as my sister is... she had it dead on.

    it's not hard to find somebody who wants to be in a relationship, it's hard to find somebody truly worth being in one with in my opinion.

    "You find a profile with a guy who has his asshole shown in his profile with if dick all out there for the World Wide Web to see.

    So the guy may be in an open relationship, could be partnered with a girl (if he's Bi). He may be polyamorous and partnered with more than one person.

    In any case, not the kind of partnering you'd be interested in, as it sounds to me like you're a one man kind of guy that places a large personal value on exclusivity (like we do).

    To me, I think xxx pics are trashy...and certainly NOT something I want to see on RJ. There are too many other sites for that.
    I have a great deal of respect for guys who can post pics that are just provocative enough to spark an interest...but leave something to the imagination.
    THEN, if things progress to the next level, if the guy wants to email me something more.... I'll welcome it....gladly!!!
    Bottom line... if you don't like the guys profile...don't look at it.
