    Dude, seriously, WHAT'S UP WITH PEOPLE IN THE INTERNET USING FAKE PROFILES?!!!

    I have tried to find a logical explanation for this type of behavior, I mean, I know some people is in discontent with their physical appearance but... In RJ?

    What do they win with having a lot of nice comments for somebody they are NOT. I mean, if I'd post a picture of a hot guy and get a lot of nice compliments for it... I mean, it's not me! those compliments are not for ME.

    So why do people do that?

    So they can talk to hot guys in here?
    and after they talk with them... what? I mean they just want to talk about stuff? heck go to omegle or something.

    I would really like somebody to explain this to me, I just can't stress enough the amount of mail that I get from unverified members. I mean, probably not every single unverified member is fake, but I just don't believe in any of them, and many of them are ACTUALLY fake... so why? WHY?

    WHY!!!!!!!

    Some possible explanations..

    - Bored/lonely and looking for pen pals/chat buddies. Some of these fakes are women.

    - Pic collectors/traders. Hoping to get more pics from you. Either as jack off material, or to create fake profiles elsewhere.

    - Assholes that get off on playing with people's emotions.

    - "Vigilantes" that like to troll douchebags.

    I generally advise guys not to emotionally invest in another guy unless they've met in person, or have seen each other on cam.

    Because guys who use fake profiles and pics are aware that they will be rejected at first glance if they are honest with their real profiles/pics.

    Guys who use fake photos, created a fake profile because they fear of being judged, rejected mostly. Some gay men can be vicious when it comes to appearances. I notice this on online dating profiles, email and reply too! on RJ, I'm a little weary when a guy is not verified or only post pics of his leg, arm, junks...etc. It's best to interact with verified profile but I mean, after all, it's the internet, don't get so emotionally involved. I mean, it's not like you're best friends with these people in real life.

    Broseph saidIf you don't want any mail, say you're in a monogamous relationship and ditch the fit pics. You'll get nothing! :p


    Lol, I notice this too, when I put single status on about six months ago. I get emails from random people, but when I put on **Dating, guys seem to back off a little! Technically, I'm single/dating around! Most of the guys I seem to like live in another state anyway but I don't get obsessive over them.

    I've reported a couple too and they're gone. I usually include a link to the actual picture of the person they're using and within days they're usually 'missing profiles'.

    I've had a couple of my pics ripped off a time or two. When friends tell you there's some guy in another state or country using your pics - with a whole new profile, etc. it leaves you with a disgusted feeling. I mean, how bad must the guy look to steal pics from a 50-something year old guy??? Hahahahaha.

    I contacted one idiot in another state who was using my pics. I chatted him up and he was getting interested. He asked for a pic and I sent him one! The bastard disappeared immediately. Shocked the shit out of him.

    Honey, no one could fake my profile.

    As for stealing pictures, the internet provides an endless supply, more than all of us could possibly fap to in our collective lifetimes. I don't understand the need for more.

    As for why people post fake pictures to get compliments or engage someone, I suppose any compliment or engagement is better than none.

    Some answers here really make sense. There are some others that I'm still skeptical about.

    I mean,Ok I get it, they don't like themselves, dot. But, using another's pictures as yours,I mean, at least in me it would make me feel worst. Where is the self-esteem in these people?

    The answer here that was pretty logical for me is that they are somehow depraved guys looking for material to jerk off or something but I mean, Google?

    What I'm trying to say is that it still doesn't make any sense to do that kind of stuff.

    People, please, just stop.

    Is not like they are committing a major crime or that I am too emotionally attached to that. Is just that people needs to accept, check that word again, accept themselves just as they are.

    And to reply to that comment about the mail: dude, I just don't like mail from unverified members, I never said I didn't like mail overall.

    Verified profiles can be faked, so there's no guarantee you're talking to the guy in the pics until you see him on cam or in person.

    Based on your 2 pics, you appear to be a good looking guy. I'm not saying you'd ever steal another's pics to make a profile, but if you were unattractive and continually ignored you might understand why someone would do such a thing.

    I've had the same thing happen and it caused a huge issue with my ex. I get f'in crazy when I think about it. Freaking Hannibal Lecters. There is a special place in hell for face stealers, lol.

    Not at all, I'm serious! I really don't think there is a need for hiding you're own self. I mean everybody is nice in their own way. I think.

    Actually, the chances that I reply to a hot guy with an unverified profile or a below average guy with verified profile go all the way to the verified one.

    You don't recognize the irony of saying "no need to hide yourself" while you hide your own face in your profile?

    Lol, this is ANOTHER reason why I don't like unverified members.

    And yes, of course, there might be verified members out there that still are fake, but the chances are at least, lower.

    And dude, heck, I get ignored many times as well, but I mean fuck it. I'm not going to stress out about it, trust me. Why? because there is a LOT of people who actually WANTS to talk to me, and the same applies to everybody. I mean if I was bad looking:

    1. I would do something for myself, there is actually a guy in here whose face is AWFUL but he has one of the most ripped bodies on RJ (NO, I WON'T SAY WHO IT IS)

    2. I wouldn't really give a fuck about people rejecting me. There will always going to be somebody who wants me, even because of money, lol.

    There is always going to be people above and below you, that's just the way it is. People needs to understand that.

    Dude, that has NOTHING to do with this topic, why? THIS IS A GAY SITE, and i'm not. I'm just protecting my privacy... I'm talking about people who hides themselves because they don't like their appearance.

    One thing is self-esteem, mine is privacy in order. Good enough?

    Next question from you: Why are you on here then? gay people is usually nicer than not-gay people... that's one among many... if you happen to have more questions, just read my profile man.
