    Some guys looked at my profile overnight. Not one of them had a face picture on their profile.

    Good lord, it's 2014--Be gay, be proud and show your face! That little bit of courage goes a long way.. it says a lot!

    Yeah, you have a great chest.. but for god's sakes.. Show your face!

    One of the dudes--in all of his pictures he's covering his face with a big-ass Ipad--come on, man!

    I've been chatting with this sexy-as-hell man.. and his face is right there on his profile picture. Take the hint, chesters!

    That is an individuals choice. Some people do not want to post their pictures for various reasons and that is their right. Freedom for everyone and to each his own.

    Some of the reasons are:

    Not wanting to be affiliated with people that post naked online pictures.
    Privacy
    Not wanting to be judged and objectified by other people because of my age, race, body and so on.
    Some of the people are misrepresenting themselves by showing older or even bogus photos.

    I for one are looking for honest genuine people to associate with. You are are hard pressed to find that within the larger community of people today. People that are intelligent and have regard and respect for people for other reasons besides a perceived subjective interpretation. I look for substance and quality within a person. Something that is lacking with many in this society.

    Most, if not all guys my age I think are afraid to take the plunge and go somewhere public with me. I'm starting to suspect it's normal.

    Honestly I own a big IT/Telecom company and don't want everyone to see my face. I'm also getting a nose job done so I'll post more pics of my face when that is done and I look btteer.

    Or they're just dishonest. Showing your face is an act of honesty. It's saying 'This is me, world.. I'm gay, proud, and this is what I look like.' That's what I say in my pictures.

    Are you referring to the closeted, DL-types? Now that gay couples are getting married, you have to be more specific!icon_smile.gif

    *Shrugs*

    I don't show a full front of my face in my profile because I have a pretty bad scar on one cheek from a home invasion.

    I'm sensitive about it. It bothers me. So I prefer to not show it. I did it to get verified only after making -damned- sure I didn't have to show it in my profile.

    That is a totally understandable reason, but you shouldnt be ashamed but i understand where you are coming from.

    So you're gonna hide your face for the rest of your life because you have a scar?

    There are some awesome men with scars out there:

    I'm working on my issues concerning it. For example, I no longer wear my hair long enough that it covers that side of my face. It's slowly becoming easier to look in the mirror.... Or talk to people face to face in daily life without being bothered by the constant curious glances at it.

    But the fact is? It takes time. And I'm not there yet.

    A lot of dudes here don't show their faces because of a shitstorm that happened a few months ago with a member's pics being stolen. Too much controversy. Most dudes don't even have private pics anymore thanks to those fucks that did what they did.

    the site enables members with a lot of anger here.

    the anonymous posts and multiple accounts are lets say dangerous for dating purposes. I am thinking why people would put such great effort in doing that type of stuff. You can do better.
