    his is in response to this thread http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/205225/

    What are some thing that you like about a persons profile? What makes you want to linger abit longer on them?

    For me its cool pictures, or pictures in a variety of places. I also like a person who seems like they want more then a hookup.

    What makes an effective profile is the capability to convey who they are via pictures and words: to convey personality, aspirations, dreams.....

    First, I look to see if he is cute,

    Then, I look to see if he is short,

    Then, I look to see what he has written about himself.

    But in truth, if he is cute and short, I would try to get at least a hook-up with him, even if he were as dumb as a box of rocks. .... icon_lol.gif

    I agree with HndsmKansan, an effective profile is one that gives the viewer an idea of who the person really is. I am attracted to pictures of people that seem comfortable with themselves and their lives and not just here for a quick hook-up. Actually HndsmKansan's pictures of him relaxing at home with his cute Beagles are a good example, as are Timberoo with his pooch Montana.

    Also profile descriptions of who they are that don't contain "laid-back" or "normal", or "I hate writing these things" in the very first sentence are a plus. I didn't realize being "laid-back" was such an important characteristic for gay men to have until I joined RJ!

    probably a necessary distinction from the all too common drama queen. ;-)

    Yes that is what I think as well, but I have not seen anyone put in their profile, "I am a screaming queen who loves soap operas, bitchy attitude and Britney".

    I am as far from a "drama queen" as you can possibly get, but I am not sure I would call myself "laid-back" either. I can get pretty intense about things, it just doesn't show.

    In a profile I like:

    a wide range of pictures

    the writings bit filled out to get an idea of what he's like in 'real' life

    a spark of originality in his writings

    I love being an example.

    And how is Montana? If I win the lottery before I retire my partner and I will buy a nice house in a small to mid size city and get one or two dogs.

    Probably a big dog (poodles, golden retrievers, labradors, german shephards or a mix of the above) but I also love schnauzers, beagles, terriers and cocker spaniels. As long as they don't bark alot.

    Glimmers of intelligence, humor, genuine kindness, and optimism.

    Even the hottest guys are two-dimensional when they don't seem to be much evolved from the average pornstar. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I admit: I am a drama queen.
    You admit: You love it!

    My absolute turn on is finding a kindred soul who shares my same discriminating taste in music!
