    what about the brain? Don't get me wrong... I like handsome men. I thin I am a pleasant person too but here guys it's all about 6packs. Is there a good gay dating website for free?
    Cheers

    Well this isn;t a dating website, it's a fitness website.

    Try plentyoffish, some good stuff there, not hookup oriented.

    plentyoffish is decent... it hasn't really given me too much to work with but it opened up the possibility, at least icon_razz.gif

    I think the fact that this site is fitness oriented has a lot to do with it. Guys that come here are, or are trying to become fit. They like to share their progress in profile pictures, which is perfectly natural.... but it ends up producing the atmosphere of physical beauty is #1. Believe me there are plenty of extremely intelligent and personable members on RJ, but many of them aren't on all that often or shy away from the chaos of the forums. It just takes a little searching.

    Anyways, good luck

    Thanks guys, maybe it takes time.
    I am sure it's plenty of clever, sensible, romantic, sexy (even without 6 packs) intriguing men ;).
    I need to find one then!

    then why have 27 guys hotlisted me, even though I have no body pics. Maybe there are guys that have hotlisted by hundreds of guys, but 27 is a huge number for someone with my low self-esteem. Apparently, some guys like me, and that's enough to make me feel better.

    yourname2000 saidJust gonna add that you only have 36 posts...it's not a lot of time/info for guys to get to see the man behind the pic.

    I'm definitely NOT a bod. I'm on my way to being a bod, but I'm a year away. Still, I've been really impressed with guys on this site. There are a ton of amazing guys who are way out of my league who have been sincere and really generous with their time and friendship. It's not really a good hookup site (and that appears to be by design). It is a unique site that provides a venue to talk to gay guys from all walks of life and from all over the world. So it is what it is.

    But I wouldn't say "it's all about body" on here. If it were, I wouldn't have had some of the amazing conversations I've had with some of the guys on my buddy list.



    I agree a lot of guys on here are really great people and really committed to getting fit and encouraging and supporting others to live that lifestyle.

    RealJock is a positive site, a lot more positive than other sites on the web!

    I'm here to get advice and support on getting fit and achieving my goals. Yet there is nothing wrong with respectfully admiring guys who are in great shape.

    BTW plentyoffish... all ugly guys! But believe me sometimes I fall in love for "non conventional beauty" but those guys... no way!
    I have no hopes icon_smile.gif
    I'll try to have a walk in London and winkle all the ones I like icon_smile.gif
