    I'm thinking of giving up on telling handsome men* how good-looking they are. And given that I'm as gay as the day is long, this isn't going to be easy. Smoking is probably easier to quit.

    It's not that I don't like handsome men, I love them. However, whenever a guy posts on a thread of mine for the very first time, I send him an e-mail thanking him for his post and also telling him how handsome he is. Then, most times......I never hear from him again. 33.gif

    Yes, I know...it's probably just my lot in life....Alas!...Alas!....just sing me a song of Torch Song Trilogy. smiley_singing.gif

    Vasabee saidya seriously, i didn't get one either.


    I'm sure it's on it's way, ya just gotta remember the time difference between me and wherever you are. I am on Pacific time, so that means guys in NYC get it 3 hours later, Central is 2 hours and Mountain is only 1 hour later. 71.gif

    I'm thinking you might be a "pleaser" which although it seems like a great personality type, it really hurts your self esteem.. Being uber nice is self-destructive and is insincere at the core. It says, "I put you first" without the person even earning it. You deserve to be first most of the time, man. Why should you be so thrilled that a dude posts on your thread? You're better than that. I would recommend a book called "Anxious to Please".

    Nah....I don't really think I am much of a "pleaser".....I kinda gave that up when I became a Baptist. 19.gif

    I get the same thing for the most part.
    The thing is, when you really stop and think about it, would you actually want to know someone who is so conceited and self centered that he can't take even a half a second to write "thank you for the compliment" ?

    Courtesy is easy and appropriate, but something that gay men are completely incapable of.

    2 things come to mind:

    1. Giving a guy a compliment doesn't indenture him to your company for life. You have to have something he values for him to want to establish a friendship or sexship with you.

    2. Giving compliments is fun, but not always a good thing. Giving a child a chocolate bar will make him smile, but sometimes doing that will spoil him and encourage him to grow up to be an entitled asshole. Beautiful men are given more "chocolate bars" than they can handle. A good parent gives treats to reward good behaviour and will suffer the tantrum and unfriendliness exerted from lack of reward. They care about the child's development. In short, if you care about a guy, don't contribute to his overinflated ego.

    Wow, a principled defense of bad manners. Woo hoo!


    It's not bad manners to withhold drool Miss Ross, rather the opposite.
