I have noticed in Sydney where I live that guys often ask if their potential profile target is Masculine or not. Even If you don't believe it's important in deciding if a guy is your type everyone has an idea of what being masculine is to them.

    Since Gay men come in all shapes and sizes, diverse range of interests and our mannerisms are also diverse so what one thing about a guy makes you believe that he is masculine (I personally don't have it as a criteria but many do and there doesn't seem to be a consensus on it which is good) but what do RJ forum bloggers think

    both masculine and feminine are both by them selves a lie. Masculine; work an obscure job that puts a guy at a desk for 8-10 hours doing the team thing?

    As soon as you reduce everything a person is about into a single word you know your eyes are closed. People are sooo different as individuals. It is possible lack of experience drives people to not see what a potential mate can bring to the table. Combining with their skills, to make the household more complete.

    This forum blogger types that when you refer to another person as a "potential profile target", you've allowed yourself to get sucked into the very world about which you complain.

    I have to explain continuously to some of my family and friends who worry about me being currently single, particularly those of my loved ones still in long-term relationships that formed pre-E, that the disconnect between people now is so strong as to make even hooking up annoying as shit. That you could go to even a gay bar now and 1/3rd of the idiots there have their faces in their phones looking, I presume, for gay people?, giving rise to doubt that all this connectivity supposedly connecting people with each other instead interferes with the potential of chemistry reacting naturally between people first meeting each other in person, not in profile.

    To me it is a disgrace of technology. I think it temporary but I'm pretty sure it will fuck up the current and some future generations. As it moves from faces in phones, to google glass to implants it will get worse for you as bits of text substitute for chemical reactions until eventually the connectivity develops to the point of connecting the very neurons from one person to another, creating yet another set of huge problems (how many can't even handle intimacy at this, the fuck, level) but also will provide opportunity, for those who can handle that, to evolve a whole new world.

    Good luck with that and until then, good luck with this that you guys seem stuck with. Sometimes all you can do is ride out the bad times as best you can. Or find your way around it.
