    Can someone explain to me why guys hide their faces on this site? I mean there's tons of amazing bodies don't get me wrong, but what's the purpose of hiding your face?

    I'm probably not the only one that wants to see a face before the body, so I know who I'm talking to. I don't like having question marks on top of my head everytime I'm talking to someone who's faceless. So help me understand?

    Some of then are closeted. Some of them think they look better with their heads chopped off. I wouldn't worry about it. Who cares? They are mainly just the wallflowers.

    I thought about this briefly this morning, when I read about new image and face-recognition internet search software. icon_confused.gif

    Let's not forget the manwhores who wish to retain some kind of anonymity, OR the lovely gentlemen who are flirting with other men online while still in in a complicated relationship!

    There are a lot of reasons. Some people can't be out of the closet. Others simply wish to protect their identity. It shouldn't really matter to you.

    No it does matter to me. And others too. Not showing your face puts people on edge. You don't know if they might have a scary face that should be bagged before mercy sex. ;) yeah blunt. Or like the other two said, anonymous to hide from something. And the hiding from something is key to why people like me ask questions. But maybe you were one of the closet people too, or maybe your a cheater as well. Don't know but by look at your face, I can see your not a nice person. At least to people who ask questions.

    He's one of the nicest men on RJ.

    You're also not thinking about the number of pics that get stolen from here and used to create fake profiles elsewhere.

    You're also not thinking about the number of places in the US where you can be fired for being, or being perceived, to be gay. Google now has a handy image search, so someone can put an employee's face in image search and ...voila.

    Since you're not verified, I'll go ahead and assume you're hiding something, or that your pictures are stolen, or that you're lazy. icon_rolleyes.gif

    You don't know what people's motives are for remaining hidden. If you assume the worst, then that says more about you than it does about them.

    For some there might be consequences, and they shouldn't be verified at all, for their own protection.

    For everyone else, I can understand why people in the OPs generation are demanding more transparency. Hell, I wish there was a way that the aforementioned facial recognition software could be used for the verification process on this and any site where someone could be using stolen pics.

    Hahaha! Iv got nothing to hide, I'm using my phone to email people on this site cause I don't have a computer at the moment. and all those pictures I took with this phone. As far as lazy, mister your mystaken. People who have to hide their appearance are some cowards. As for me? My profile is filled out to the max. Iv got nothing to hide.

    Ill assume your a conservative and everything must go your way or no way. ;) sorry but the world dont revolve around you either.

    Why is having a face pic on a forum so important. You don't see people with face pics at forums like tripadvisor or bodybuilding.com. I'm not here to make friends but rather I'm just reading mostly and sometimes offering my opinion, even though nobody gives a shit about what I say anyways most of the time. But I have met a few nice guys on here and I'm glad

    Would you like it if I ate crow? I already talked to JOOU. He's a really cool guy. I personally hate it when people have to stray from the actual topic and throw it in thread makers face. I should remake this thread and address those who aren't a blogger type. ;) but this thread didn't address you. So why not just share your thoughts instead of picking a fight I'm trying to avoid.

    Good question. I can't speak for anybody else but I don't use this site to meet anybody or make friends. I just like to check out the forums. I have a private face pic but I just don't want any extra attention from creepy guys lol. This site to me isn't much different than youtube where I I make just make comments and get entertained.
