I've noticed that some members seem to think everyone wants to live the EXACT same lifestyle as they live

    and it's pissing me off.

    It's as if their life is far more superior than others...
    for example:
    running11 thinks that young men should not search for relationships because that's not what young men are supposed to do (I disagree).
    he thinks that young men can't settle (which is completely ignorant).

    I accept you for living the life you want, but don't even try to impose your idea of how young gay men should live their life... on me because you aren't me... that's the bottom line.

    and I am sure there are some young gay men out there reading this too who agree... who are sick and tired of being categorized into the "let's fuck as many people as we can because were young" group.

    We all have different opinions. Maybe you should ask yourself why an opinion that's different than yours pisses you off.

    thing is, i've come to accept their views... but hate it when they try to make it seem as though because I accept their views, that I want to be like them.

    It's something you taught me ... I don't need to agree with them.. but I can still appreciate theirs.
    but they don't understand that.

    I used to care what others thought because my ego was so inflated with pride. That's not the person I am today. A Miracle happened to me and fortunately along the way I gained a 'teensy wheensy' amount of Self-Worth. What matters today is what I do and not what I think because I'm not the one doing it. I've relinquished control of the things I have no power over. Some think I'm just apathetic or medicated.

    He only responded to a thread you made. If you only want responses that agree with your position, then why bother making a thread? What kind of a discussion is that?

    He makes a good point!

    Instead of going nuts about everything, why don't you try to work on disproving the stereotype that young gay men turn everything into a drama? If you want to settle down with someone that's great - it shouldn't matter to you whether anyone else doesn't understand that, as you point out, you're living your life, not them. Live it how you want to and prove them wrong. All you're proving by going nuts is young gays = drama.

    I have no problem with hearing the views of others... it's how they word it that annoys me.

    Saying "I disagree... I believe that young people... blah blah blah..." is one thing and I'm cool with that.

    but saying "You're young, you are this and this ..." is another thing and I hate that.

    nipples don't classify you as whether you are a twink or not.

    People are going to direct their responses at you, assuming any generalizations you made in your question apply to you...

    They only know about you, what you have said, so they will often expand upon the ideas presented and judge the fuck out of you.

    Don't take it personally.

    ok well if they are going to judge me, they might as well do it properly... and if they are incorrect, they shouldn't get all upset when I correct them.

    So if someone has the right to judge, they also have the right to be corrected on their judgments...

    I'm sure everyone needs this at some point in their life. Most of us at many points.

    I don't need criticism b/c I don't agree with their lifestyle in the first place...

    If I am asking for advice... then I would be asking those who have been together since they were 19 and have stayed together... not whores... of which RJ is filled up with.

    and don't get me wrong... a whore isn't a bad thing... I just don't agree with that lifestyle.

    Actually, Mohamed, I found running's reply to your OP very similar in tone to your OP.
    You did, after all tell all of us that gay men aren't responsible enough to be tied down to a commitment. You also said, "GUYS, LEARN WHAT COMMITMENT MEANS"

    ...so with that in mind I saw nothing wrong in his post, and in your reply you were quite clear that you didn't agree with him. icon_wink.gif

    I have yet to see one gay man who is willing to commit to a relationship at the age of 19 other than myself.

    Prove me wrong.
