    fake pic on here? I just chatted with a guy who has a picture of "Berke" from Sean Cody as his one and only main pic. I asked if he modeled for Sean Cody and he said no and I let him know he looks just like "Berke". Then sounds of silence...................no reply. I just reported him.

    Why can't men be themselves? Show an arm, or a foot or an ear, but let it be you, don't be fake. icon_neutral.gif

    Since I discovered that google images trick, I've found out a lot of fake pics, even verified members have fake pics, like of them swimming where you can't really see their face and some of them had TONS of comments, saying, wow hot! when it's not even them icon_lol.gif

    I had some guy using Mike Ruiz's pics email me the other day. I mentioned it and his profile went "poof".

    There is some guy on FindFred.com using GaryJr's pics.

    Some guy on here, I forget his profile name (somebody please help me out with this), was using Marcus Schenkenberg's pics.

    These guys are just too stupid to think they are not going to get caught eventually. As to why they do it, well it's just a whole other layer of stupid.

    Isn't that the whole reason why RJ has the verification system?

    I know of one who's completely fake, picture-wise and would surprise many people.

    Insecurity and posing as someone they deem ideally attractive I guess.

    Well, if that's the case, then maybe you should threads about it and warn people. Maybe we should have a group activity thread - "report spotted fake pictures here."

    Let's bust these fakesters.

    What percentage of RJ guys are verified anyway? I can't conceive that it is anywhere near a majority.

    I can't tell you the amount of times I've been lied to by guys. I don't know if I'm just too trusting or a lying man magnet or what. Ugh. Lord knows why guys do that.

    Ehh... I would say the most obvious reason is fear of being outed... but lets be honest, how many Straight Guys come on this site looking for people they know? haha and the other reason obviously... is that its a 50 year old 300 pound guy who has a weird fetish for Fit 18 year old guys.... hahah

    I've had it happen too; why people get their jollies off of lying, I will never know. It is quite discouraging.

    There's at least one pic on this site that is being used by multiple guys. Who do they think they are fooling?

    I really don't get the point of uploading a fake pic. When the guy you're trying to meet actually sees you in person he's probably going to reject you so the person uploading a fake pic is wasting their own time as well.

    I dont think they are either closeted or ugly necessarily, I think fakers (on this site and just in general on the net) are just in it for the attention. When is it more likely that a stranger is going to approach them and start a conversation with them: in their usual day-to-day lives offline or living a fantasy life with fake pictures?

    Could it be that simple?

    Not anyone that I recognize, you can just drag any pic to google images to find out if someone's using a fake pic.

    It's so stupid using pics of other men from the showbiz or porn industry in a gay site... I think each and everyone of us knows a bunch of good looking men from such industries and thus using pics is not soo smart, which means not a smart person which means a big fat NO

    I'd like to add some the middle eastern guys who uses Arab celebs as well, some of you won't recognize that.

    Cheers guys and just let go.

    The stupid will be stupid till the end.
