    I'm about to give my profile a long overdue reconstruction. Plus a lot of men's 'about me' sections say 'dunno what to put here so I'll fill it in later,' or 'just ask.' So I thought I'd go ahead and ask.


    What kinds of things do you like to learn about the men of RJ from reading their profiles?

    I like to know how big their stockpile of weapons is.

    I like to know how many lives they haven taken, and the method of which they were taken.

    I like to know if they are rage!

    I like to know if in a fight, do they fight fair, or pick up the nearest blunt object and start swinging?

    In no particular order:

    *Athletic/active interests (in other words, why he is on a site called "Real Jock")
    *Cerebral interests
    *Passions
    *Personality traits
    *Whether or not the person is using passable grammar/syntax and has a decent vocabulary

    This, plus maybe music/book/movie taste, which gives some insight into a guy's personality. Being only on here for conversation (kinda giving up on the idea of meeting RL friends this way) I want to know something other than your taste in underwear.

    Also, if you have no interest in conversing with anyone other than a potential bedmate, maybe find a way to say that tactfully so those of us who don't fit into that category don't waste your time or ours, would be helpful.

    I should probably fix mine now.


    If that was a shameless ploy to get people to look at your profile...it worked. icon_smile.gif

    I like seeing details / specifics, and a sense of personality or style to the writing.

    For example, it's boring to read "I like movies". Ok... what movies specifically do you like? Find a clip from a favorite movie on youtube and share it.

    "I like to travel" can be replaced with "Last December I spent two weeks hiking through Colombia, sleeping on beaches, and drinking too much coffee".

    If you're really into your fitness or sports, share some of the specifics of your workout routine, or sports teams you train with / tournaments you compete in.

    Everyone has some interesting anecdotes that make them who they are. Plus it gives guys reading your profile something to start a conversation on. Isn't that kind of the point?

    I'd like to know how large his pussy is. And by that I mean his cat. I'm allergic to cat dander.

    To be honest, I seldom read the "About Me". I'd rather converse with the person about their interests and motivations and learn about them that way. It may not be as efficient as reviewing a list or reading a short paragraph but that's the way I like to do it. icon_biggrin.gif

    I love reading the "About Me" section. Especially when it's honest and interesting.... and gives me an idea about who the guy is. That said, I know mine sucks.

    If he's masculine.
    If he's into football/basketball and other sports
    If he lives in a city I would visit or have connections to.
    If he's into scifi movies.

    well here is a small list of things I don't want to know about

    How heterosexual you believe you appear.

    How "Chill" "Relaxed" "Awesome" you think you are

    Your "Shopping list" of "qualities" you want in a guy



    What I do want to know

    Who the heck you are, what kind of things your interested in and what your up to.

    and if you can keep sex outta it, even better.

    It says something about the person, but my luck has been that they sometimes don't come close as to who they really are. Almost every time I will look at someone's profile to get a sense of who they are.

    But I'm one of those "dunno what to put here" type of guys. At times I find it hard to describe myself, and whenever I start putting words down they start sounding corny and cliche. Maybe it's being modest or being shy, who knows. I find that with RJ the manner and way people post is a good indication of whether they really live up to their profile icon_smile.gif

    Bah! Not in the "about me". That goes in the headline, front and center. We're talking about a make-or-break relationship criteria here.

    Come to think of it, there doesn't need to be a profile. Just have pretty pictures and the word "top" or "bottom" attached to them.
