    It kind of pisses me off when I go to somebody's page and see that they are very descriptive with whom they want to meet. News flash there are many different types of people out there, all with great personalities and character traits that out shine any persons looks and physic. Could you seem any more racist by saying I only want to meet white people or black people or what ever, as if they are the only people that you can stand talking to. That's craziness. Just because you can't see yourself hanging out having a decent conversation, dating, or even fucking does not mean it isn't possible.

    Does anyone else feel the same or am I alone on this one.

    Why would you honestly allow yourself to get bothered by ANOTHER person's preferences? It's their life, let them lead it is they please.

    I know exactly where he's coming from, 'cause I've had enough guys slip. By that I mean that they read my profile and think I seem like someone worth getting to know. Then at some point down the line - "I didn't realize how old you are" and the connection ends just like that. I also get this pretty often when I'm on the prowl in a Gay bar, interested glances start getting exchanged, and a conversation's underway. "Oh, I thought you were younger. See ya." icon_rolleyes.gif

    You do get PO'd, and you do move on. That doesn't make it right though. Especially when all the ugly "ism's" of society at large are as widespread in Gay life as they are.

    I agree with you, op. There are lots of good guys they are missing out on.

    I'm thankful when I see profiles like that.
    It's an easy way of finding out that the guy's an ass, ignorant, and potentially racist. It saves me the time I could potentially have wasted dating this guy, until I would have found out about this.

    I think you have to strike a balance between being too specific in what you are asking for, and not specific enough. My experience with 'dating' sites was that unless you said what you were looking for, broadly speaking, you'd get anyone and everyone hitting on you and it gets depressing.

    If you put in a few details about the sorts of guys you generally like, it might weed out some of the ones you have no interest in whatsoever. Of course, you'll still get some who chance their arm, like guys 10 years or more outside of the age range you've indicated, but it does cut it down.

    I agree a lot of gay men are like women who have their ideal knight in shining armor., Too bad they cant get out of fantasy world
