    It always makes me wonder why men on here complain SO much that they have no one in their lives and do nothing to improve their situation.

    Just think if you spent less time watching TV or on here/internet you could be working out at least an hour a dayicon_idea.gif

    At least your body will improve and you will feel better about yourself. Added benefits from physical exercise are better sleep, better mental clarity, less stress, increased energy, better immunity, better sex. etc....icon_idea.gif

    your thoughts??

    This is not a real question, right? Seems like a lot of projection. I have never complained about dating or working out and I don't own a TV, so I am free and clear of all of this, but this question just seems loaded with BS. Just judging by the profile pictures, a lot of the guys on this site do seem to work out a lot. I read these forums and I don't see many complaints about not enough time to work out. I do see a lot of complaints about trouble finding honest and healthy men to date, but I think that speaks more about the average gay/dating population rather than the people who post here.

    Yep. I can't stand when people complain and complain, like they're not in charge of their own lives. If you don't like your situation, CHANGE IT (and yes I realize there are certain exceptions to this).

    my experience with dating is that gay men as a group don't know how to date. I have met with over a dozen guys in the last year at coffee houses and restaurants. Only a few 2nd dates. Guys say they are interested and don't follow through, etc.

    Americans spend something like 29 hours a week in front of the idiot box/flat screen.

    Sometimes they are on the Internet at the same time.

    Then they ask why their lives suck.

    A good body doesn't make someone worth dating. . .

    I agree, just makes you want to fuck them more that's all. Not that there is anything wrong with that icon_wink.gif

    Perhaps working on yourself as a human being should also be encouraged to become a more likable/datable person.

    Over exposure to TV can make you shallow/vacuous so I agree there are better things to be doing with your time although I don't think 90% of the guys on here suffer from a lack of working out..........

    But it's more likely to happen than with a bad body


    I mean, don't get me wrong, I probably wouldn't date a guy that didn't take care of himself. . .but that alone isn't something that makes someone worth investing in as far as a relationship goes. If there's nothing else there. . .

    I spend my time on here and spend about 60 - 90 minutes in the gym 5 days a week.

    As far as the title of the thread states - increasing my dating prospects, well, that remains to be seen. I am open to the concept.
