Classifying yourself as "VGL" and "GL"

    Why do people feel the need to tell others that they are "GL" (good looking) or "VGL" (very good looking)? We have eyes, why not let us decide for ourselves?

    When people classify themselves in a certain category of looks I don't think it's going to change others perspectives. So why bother even writing it? Perhaps they are just trying to validate themselves.

    What do you think? Do you find it useful when someone categorizes themselves as "VGL/GL"? Or do you find it downright irritating and egotistical?

    I think that some men feel the need to remind themselves why they wake up every day.

    Classifying yourself in a certain category of looks isn't going to change my view of what I find attractive. I always cringe a little when I read profiles that begin with something like: "Sup dudes, I'm GL iso other GL"

    Do they have a minimum number of characters to fill on their profile?

    Usually the VGL or GL tags go hand-in-hand with no face pic or a clearly lifted pic. So it's wishful thinking.

    The "VGL" guys are amazingly average looking at best - nothing much stands out about them physically.

    The hyper-attractive guys tend to be more humble about their looks (sometimes to a fault).

    Funny how these things work in reverse.

    I prefer crackers and therefore I can't possibly venture outside of my preference to try other things because preference means you don't like anything else OBVIOUSLY.

    I was sadly born without a face, so don't even get the chance to use those terms

    I have learned to read all online profiles as if they were written on opposite day.

    Usually, anyone that describes himself as VGL gets instantly blocked...

    And "everybody thinks I'm straight", "dude", and "bro".

    Most guys who post "GL" or "VGL" are too chickenshit to post a real pic of themselves, but they're still desperate for attention. Alternately, they're trying to convince themselves that they're good-looking, much like the guys who go to the greatest lengths to proclaim their own masculinity are the ones who doubt their own masculinity the most.

    I skip over profiles with VGL or GL declarations in them. As well as I skip over profiles that tell you how much/many times they work out in the profile description. Or profiles that tell you when their last HIV test was done. .. "straight-acting" declarations.. etc

    Ha! So that's why VGL guys only deserve others who are VGL.
