    I'm sure there is another post about this, but what the hey.

    If you are one of the people that uses the hotlisting feature, do you ever talk to the person, or do you just say, he's hot *add to hotlist* and go on about your business?

    I get random people hotlist me, who has never talked to me, and probably never will. My question is, Why??icon_question.gif

    I hotlist guys without contacting them. I assume that dozens have already hotlisted them and have flooded them with messages.

    So I just admire the hotties from the distance.

    Only 5 have hotlisted me ( thanks much! icon_smile.gif ), and none have engaged me in message exchanges. That's alright.

    I talk to some (I at least make an effort with most) but being that this is a fitness site, some of the guys on my hotlist are just people whose pics have given some inspiration to help get me closer to my own goals.

    Just say 'oh he's hot', press the button then move on with my business. Heh

    It's a compliment, why do we always have to psychoanalyze everything? icon_neutral.gif

    And I disagree with it being shallow. I don't give it much thought, it's only shallow if you obsess about it.

    Hotlisting redux number 999... icon_rolleyes.gif

    Hotlist: Analogous to a wink and a smile

    Buddylist: Analogous to a pleasant conversation

    Hotlist: No contact required

    Buddylist: Contact required

    I think it's just that simple.

    Hotlisting someone is a compliment to them -- you telling them you think they are hot -- it's that simple. Doesn't require any more than that because sometimes you might hotlist someone just because you think they are hot, not necessarily because you want to date them, or even talk to them. If they hotlist you back, I suppose that is an opening to at least say "Hi" if you so choose but, again, it's not necessary. I have 900 guys on my hotlist, who has time to talk to all of them, much as I might like to icon_lol.gif

    You wanna know the honest truth?

    Hotlisting is like saying: "Ooh! Eye candy! Damn this guy looks good. I'm gonna add him to my collection of eye candy so I can look at it whenever I damn well please and consequently be happy"
    Which allows you to later say: "Man, I'm bored, and I lost my faith in mankind. Alas, where is my hotlist? Damn, these guys are hot!"
    So it's like collecting Pokemon cards, but with hot guys.















    HA HA HA HA
    That had to be the most shallow post I've ever written!

    If someone hotlists me out of the blue, I usually send a short note saying thanks or something like that. I mean it was a compliment after all. I figure the ball is in their court after that. If they wanna talk after that, fine with me. If not, okay.

    As for when I hotlist people, I usually like to say hi or something like that.

    I always send a thank you email and if the guy who's put me on his hot list me wants to talk, then we talk.
    If I hot list someone, it's up to him whether he wants to chat or not.

    Thank you to you guys who have put me on your hot lists.

    Ikaros saidSo it's like collecting Pokemon cards, but with hot guys.

    On a weird impulse, I bought a pack of Pokemon cards the other day. What the heck? They sell for a dollar now? They were like $8 a pack when I actually collected the things. Bah.

    As for the hotlist thing, I'll say what I've said in other threads like this: I thank everyone who hotlists me, and I'll send someone I hotlist a note if they have something chat-worthy in their profile.

    I just hotlist. To me, a "hotlist" is the online equivalent of a real-life glance. I see lots of hot guys that I have no desire to talk to. They're hot--in the physical sense. That's all.

    Well I agree with Oscar Wilde: "It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances. The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible."

    Well maybe I will call it being hollow then tehehe. In all honesty though there is nothing wrong with giving someone credit for looing awesome, that's the intent of the hotlist anywho!

    Can I nominate MNJock for site statistician? I'm hoping to see the ranked list of most repeated thread topics. I'm placing my bets for:

    "How do you use your hotlist?"

    "Old guys dating young guys: icky or what?"

    "I'm already 18 years old and I've never had a boyfriend. Please help me, I'm desperate."

    "Is RealJock really for real jocks?"

    "Bisexuals. I don't believe in them."

    "Does your gaydar work? Mine doesn't."

    "I've been working out a whole week already and I don't see any results. What am I doing wrong?"

    "XXX deleted his profile. Anyone know what happened?"
