    So, you're viewing a profile and you're drooling over the superhot guy showing off his 8-pack abs........then you look further in the pic and realize:

    - he's a slob

    or

    - he lives in squalor

    or

    - he has a cat and you hate cats

    or

    - there's a box of Girl Scout cookies sitting on the table

    or

    - he has no furniture in his place or his furniture appears to be jacked up


    Whatever the case may be, does what you see surrounding a guy in his photo make you think differently about him?

    *checks own pics*

    We all have busy lives. I'm not going to fault a guy for having a little clutter. As long as there are no dead animals under the pile of laundry or biohazards growing in his fridge, that is. icon_lol.gif

    I don't really pay much mind to it. I don't assume it is a pic from his own home necessarily.

    I like the pet pictures.

    It could be worse...it could be a guy with good surroundings in his pics, but no 6 or 8 pack.

    I know right...? Such slutty men.

    They should be covered from head to toe in burqa and niqab, so as not to offend Allah.

    I just enjoy the view and if I feel like taking it further then I will.

    They say a pic is worth a thousand words but often it only just needs one. icon_biggrin.gif

    @ cold: This is a gay fitness site. Nothing wrong with some skin I'd say.
    @ EastCoastNAZ: I don't usually pay much attention to it.

    I think the stuff in the background of people's pictures is hilarious. You can tell a lot about a person that way though it's obviously not 100 percent accurate. However, it's almost always a good way to start a conversation/say hello.

    For example, someone had a fixed wheel bike in the background of his pics. You don't see those too often and I ride a fixie. I'm also amused, for some reason, by the guys with three or four different brands of toothpaste on the counter in front of them though I've got five in my medicine cabinet...not sure what that says about me/them.

    People should really whipe down their mirrors now and again.

    Yep, I do look at the pic, all of it. Finding a fancy book with a great looking cover is easy, finding a great book that's a great read, not as easy. If I'm thinking about approaching a guy, then yep, I want to know more about him than just what his abs look like.

    Unless I'm married to them I don't really give a fuck. Unless there's something actually offensive like an animal being tortured. I mean I know that's not as bad as A BOX OF GIRL SCOUT COOKIES HEAVENS TO BETSY.

    OP
    DOMINUS saidYou need a new hobby.

    +1
    From your pictures I infer:

    You decorate strait out of Target, but have yet to find the drapery section.
    Your place is lacks art on the walls.
    You find it more important to take self-pictures than put a way your gym clothes
    You have the exact same style of lamps in several of your rooms (boring)

    So, just a quick anthropological assesment says that you're just another nice guy in the herd who does exactly what society expects you to. Mom's love you for your dull reliability.

    With the exception of outdoor shotz, I have never once even given a thought to the background of pics. Are we not judged enough? Will we now have RJ Decor of the Day? G.A.Y. Threads dedicated to whether or not the guy should keep his furniture or re-decorate?

    It would be kinda funny if there were a noose hanging from a rafter or a cage or a rack of evening gowns in the background.

    Of course I am regularly horrorfied by Men taking pics of themselves with their shirts off. DISGUSTING.

    I agree with all the points but I must say, Cash, I am disappointed in you. That salmony color you have in the background is so 2001, catch up with the times!

    It is a very deep Claret Red. The light in the pic is weird.

    I don't do Salmon.

    Your responses are cracking me up.

    The point of my post was that I was looking at my own pics and for some reason, I got a bit paranoid. Probably because someone was judging the pics I have on my Facebook page and I was interested to know what you guys thought.

    And to respond to FredPDX:

    You decorate strait out of Target, but have yet to find the drapery section. Um, no. Never bought one thing from Target to decorate my place. I don't like drapes and I wouldn't put up drapes in a rented apartment anyway. Just too much work to put up and take down when the lease is done.
    Your place is lacks art on the walls.I'm still searching for the right art to put on my walls. Pictures of naked hot men just won't cut it anymore.
    You find it more important to take self-pictures than put a way your gym clothesI have one whole pic from the gym...geez!
    You have the exact same style of lamps in several of your rooms (boring)If you're going to observe, at least do it right. The one lamp is a floor lamp, the other is a table lamp. And, actually, they are now both in the same room.
