    I've noticed that adam4adam, manhunt and those types of sites seem to be flooded with fake profiles nowadays.. Just a few years ago, I noticed not so much of this going on.. But seems like this is happening all the time and getting worse.. Im not talking about the profiles that lie a little I'm talking about profiles usually with a hot body pic with cut off head, big dick shot, sometimes even a whole face.. I know I'm not everyone's type and vica verse but damn 9 times out of ten when I message these profiles you either won't get a response or they will talk to you but find an excuse not to meet... It seems that this has made it impossible to meet nowadays online.. The bar/club scene suck around here and no one goes to them, so basically the only way for meeting for dating and sex is online.... What's the purpose of this and why?

    can't imagine anybody not responding to you, so there must be something up with that. seriously.

    I had a guy on manhunt who unlocked his photos for me (unasked for by me), and he was hot , I mean, nice curvy dick, thick, latino, handsome beefy. I am usually a bit too shy for those types, but I responded, No answer. Wrote again and said "hey, you unlocked your photos for me", still no answer. grrrrr

    I ' not sure what the reason was though. Was he real? Was he indeed in my 'hood?, Was it just a spur of the moment and i was not avail when he was looking and the moment now passed? Those questions are all unanswered.

    I think I had something like that happened to me once on there too... I think alot of them are set up to in trap good looking and hot guys to get them frustrated and to make them feel bad about themselves, after they send a message to the profile and get no response... I wouldn't be surprised if the actual staff of these sites set up fake profiles to attract people.. But then again if they play games with people than they would chase them away...

    I can think of a couple of reasons why fake profiles exist:

    1. "Str8" and closeted married guys. The sites are used as outlets.
    2. Gay closeted guys. Self explanatory.
    3. Anonymity is very powerful in the online world.
    4. Pic thieves!

    The good thing about the RJ site is there's an optional verification process so you know who's real and which ones to look out for. Have you tried connecting with guys on this site? It may be more beneficial than the Adam or manhunt site.

    Yeah, I usually have problems with this, I actually just try to make friends most of the time, but then after a couple of messages I never hear from them again. Even when I actually do hook up that one time, I never hear from them again. Sucks.icon_neutral.gif

    I wouldn't open skype up to talk to someone new. It would probably make me update it first, and I can't remember the damn password.

    I think it's about competition rising. They see other people using fakes and it either gives them the idea or makes them feel like they can't get attention (or even basic respect) from hot guys without looking like a hot guy too. Many people on these sites aren't looking for in-person meetups, they just want a bit of attention from a hottie.

    it's not a bulletproof verification system though. I've seen people get verified around it.
