    ....what's your success rate? Nightly? Every time you log on? Rarely? Depends on your luck that night? Let's discuss! You can be honest. I won't tell and I won't laugh. icon_cool.gif

    Got rid of them all. Tired of the flakes, people lying about how they really look, i'm either too old or the wrong race. I prefer sites where you have to be verified or there is web cam capability so there's no mistake about who you're going to meet.

    All sites work but I've found that found that some sites work better in some areas and other don't. For example m4m doesn't work well around Annapolis, but mh does - go figure. I'm not always looking, but, when I am online I am looking and i can stir something up. While sometimes it can be hit or miss depending on who's on and what they want to do, in person, on video chat, it's pretty easy to get off!!!

    I like Scruff personally, guys tend to be more grounded and honest about their appearance and intentions.

    I'll be honest - no real reason not to be....I've been here on RJ for about 5 years, Connexion for nearly 10 (my favorite site) and A4A for about 2 years. Just got an Android, so i started grindr about 2 months ago. I was on MH, but up here in the high country, not many are on it, so i dropped my account there.

    Up here in the high country, being about 175 miles from civilization (Denver), and being single, you gotta cast a pretty wide net, hence the reason i'm on several sites. I've had success and failures from all sites, and each site does seem to have it's own demographic. Connexion, which doesnt allow naked pics, is my networking and friend making/meeting site - the nature of that site just naturally weeds out the hookup only type of guy - which i'm fine with. RJ comes in a close 2nd in that respect. A4A seems to kinda fall in the middle ground, with about 50% of the guys looking for hookups, and the other 50% looking for a relationship. grindr, in my relatively short time on there, seems to be 'all business' icon_smile.gif As Humble noted, that might change shortly....hehehe..

    With regard to the quality of people met - I'd have to say that Connexion and RJ guys are the most 'real' - and are guys that I've made the most lasting friendships and relationships with.

    I get hit on quite a bit, but never seem to do anything, jus too picky I guess, have a few times but it almost always went bad, really just not worth it, at most ne more all I'm gonna do is tell a guy I think might be hot what bar I'm gonna be at, no more blind hookups for me

    Hardly ever. Half the time I honestly am there to see who is who, and what is going on. Let's say a friend is totally clueless to the internet sites and he has someone come up to him at a club. I can let him know that the guy is in an ltr and just looking for a threesome etc....... Also, the guy looking for a threesome already knows I'm not into it because he read my online profile so he doesn't bother me. I can walk into a club and already know intimate details about 20 guys because they are online, and my friend doesn't know anything about it. I'm like his internet helper monkey.

    I've met some great guys at gay.com a few years ago. Scruff right now seems very promising, and I'm talking with a guy that's a few hundred miles away but we seem to have a lot in common. Scruff is majorly out of control for me....get tons of emails and woofs....mostly all nice guys on there it seems...

    It depends on the region too, In northwest Indiana mainly I get hit on by closet cases and men cheating on their significant other.

    Horny cocks and asses fall out of Grindr and Manhunt every time I sign on--and that's any time of the day.

    But I know the problem .. there's a lot going against me.

    A4A only. I think most of us who take care of our bodies have no problem attracting people but less success finding what we want. It isn't about having high standards, its more about the fact that we aren't forced to meet the people to find out who they really are. For example, most of my good friends from work are people that I would never have been friends with had I not worked with them on a daily basis.

    In Austin, there are up to 800 torso/chest/ass/dick pics online at any one time, so it just creates visual overload unless you're just looking for a warm body. Some guys that seem ok, will write one message that could be misread and I'll pull back from connecting with them for fear that the guy is a lunatic. Having been stalked before, it's better to be cautious on there.

    I'm about to get rid of my Grindr account. The vast majority of guys on there are flakes, and it seems like everyone is "30". I like Scruff much better...the guys on there are much more genuine.

    Burn! He just totally ignored your comment. Or maybe you guys started privating each other already. Wow!!! If that's the case that's hot.


    Edit, Oh yeah you guys did talk. You guys are mutual buddies now. Aww that's cute! icon_biggrin.gif

    You should change your main profile picture. This one has too little light and therefore it doesn't show your best features. Your other pictures are nice.

    Hardly ever? But you are one sexy beast. I got hard just from looking at your pictures. You must be very picky. I'm sure most guys want to have sex with you.

    Grindr - I don't use it

    A4A - have an account I rarely use, though when I peeked at it whilst in Toronto last week during Pride, I had a butt-ton of emails lol

    MH - haven't used since 2002-ish.

    Scruff - I've looked at it, but it seems to be more of a bear/otter/wolf/cub thing. My genes more or less got me hooped (very little body or facial hair lol)

    Jack'd - Seems to be less driven by hook-up factor than A4A/Grindr and has some possibility for meeting folks for fun.

    * Side note - I really don't seek to hook-up much, despite my exhibitionist streak, lol. So my "success rate" is very very low.

    I can be quite picky about "hook-ups". icon_biggrin.gif

    I have grindr (I rarely go on it these days tbh, I prefer RJ) but when i do use it, it's to chat to new guys, sometimes flirt a bit. Mostly for me it is just something to use out of curiosity/no burning agenda- just window shopping but still keeping my open for a pot of gold. I have made a few friends via the app.

    Albeit, I have hooked-up less than a handful of times via the app (to guys I had really liked and gotten to know mostly) and i've had the app for well over a year now.

    However, I could have certainly hooked up mannnnny maaannny mannny more times from the app if I was a lot more inclined to do so.

    If I have a shirtless pic up i'll get several new guys messaging me daily, sometimes (not bragging, just giving context) i'd log on to over 30 messages from a range of guys (mostly just seemingly looking for a wham, bam, thank you ma'am scenario, but also some apparently looking to date/ltr too). If I have a non shirtless pic, i'll get less traffic, still some interest though, but at the same time it does weed out a lot of the, erm, 'undesirerables' ;]

    Really like A4A; have met several really good friends/FBs there for long term fun and conversation.
