    I know we all have profiles for the express purpose of sharing information about ourselves with other people, and we put up pictures of ourself for people to look at, but I feel weird looking at profiles. I don't really know why.

    Because it's not right for a K9 to be dominating mice?
    Does it feel like peeking into something you're not supposed to be seeing, and so you feel slightly embarrassed/guilty? And since you know those feelings have no basis in rational thought, you feel 'odd'.

    Sorry, time's up. Kimberly will give you your invoice. Same time next week?

    Excellent pic there Tim, btw....

    I actually don't spend a great deal of time looking at profiles on RJ, I tend to look at those who either make an interesting comment on a forum or those that might have looked at my profile.

    Consider it a sharing moment. When you read a profile you are being introduced to someone. It should reflect the personality of that individual. Your interested and/ or curious. Looking at a profile doesn't mean anything inappropriate, its curiousity.

    I'm disappointed when someone has a profile, but it contains nothing... the more the better!

    Uhm, just thought I'd mention your 'other' head has a few black spots on it. icon_eek.gif
    Might want to have that looked at.

    To be honest Timberoo I don't know either. I was just looking at your new pics, admiring your dog Montana, etc.. I guess because I find people fascinating I enjoy the profiles.

    I just wish people would try and bring their personalities across on the profiles a bit more. I know we all want to come across as likable and personable people, but I am not sure using the term "laid-back" so much is getting the point across. Maybe they are trying to reassure people they don't fit the stereotype of the drama queen? I don't know.

    I don't know, sometimes I feel like I'm intruding, or being pervy because I think the guy is attractive.

    I feel exactly the way you do, Timberoo. And yet, strangely, I put a lot of time into wording my own profile.

    I completely agree, when I read somethng I like that someone has posted, I have to look at their profile and see more about them. I don't see it as being "pervy" at all (although there are somce DAMN fine profile pics) icon_redface.gif

    I don't find it pervy at all actually. I figure that if someone doesn't want me to read through their profile, they wouldn't have one.

    I don't understand your guilt. Profiles were made to be looked at. Do you maybe feel like you are not being faithful to someone?icon_question.gif

    i dont get it either. i will look at a profil with no problem. if i really like it i even leave a note and they dont have to respond its jsut a compliment. there is no reason to create a profile if u dont want to share it.

    Just wait until you start tracking IPs and using neat-o letterheads to get ISP customer information. Gotta love the PATRIOT act. Anyhow, THEN you can feel weird. icon_razz.gif

    Did you take your pills today timberoo coochie poo? icon_biggrin.gif

    Profiles are meant to be read. Read mine until you get to the top secret part in cipher. When you start to understand it, then you'll feel lost and scared and alone. And then I'll have to kill you. icon_twisted.gif

    I love looking at profiles. I enjoy reading profiles. But then I'm nosy and curious, oft fascinated by how people choose to present themselves via these social networking sites.

    I used to bristle at the people who'd unlock their photos without so much as a hello, but I'm over that. Sure, I'll look at your dirty photos. I'm especially fond of the bent over shots with your cock and balls saying hello from between your thighs. But that does not mean I will unlock my silly underwear photos! I've even left on the function that allows others to know that I've viewed their profile. I can't conceal a lengthy glance at the bar, the mall, the grocery store or wherever else. No reason to do it here.

    Yeah, I like to look.

    I don't know why, maybe i'm afraid I'll be judged by the other person?

    Hmm, I wouldn't worry about that too much. If someone's uptight because of who's viewed his profile...he needs a Xanax.

    PhxAriz08 saidI don't want to sound rude, but I always get a lot of private (pictures) in my e-mail from RJ's members. I mean why send me private picture without getting to know me? How am I going to reply? Oh nice cock or oh nice ass? lol... I prefer someone to send me a short message, then send me their private pictures. Now that make sense. icon_wink.gif

    Yeah, I've gotten that lately since I've begun to post more in the forums...I don't get a note, just a "I have unlocked my private photos" or something like that....I've yet to look...I just hit the delete button...I didn't really join this site to look at a strangers penis or whatever....and I'm sorta the same way about looking @ other peoples profiles...I feel "stalkerish" for some reason...perhaps its knowing that they know, I'm looking....icon_redface.gif

    I enjoy it immensely. You're not invading anyone's privacy when they post public profile info and photos.

    I just updated my profile thanking all those who don't have second thoughts sharing with me their privates, erm, private photos...and those who unlock them for me voluntarily... to shut me up, maybe? icon_lol.gif

    You don't know why? That is sweet. I personally think it is because RJ members are attracted to you and immediately have this impulse to reveal themselves. Perhaps they are hoping for reciprocity?

    Perhaps you were raised in a family environment that emphasized privacy and not talking about one's self?
