    I wouldn't say "so many" because there are just as many who aren't! unfortunate shallow people crave attention at any cost, so they get the most attention.

    Not whining. Just make a statement. I really couldn't care less about my relationship status. I'm just not too impressed with the overall lack of actual attraction that goes past physical appearance

    Some are, and a few are amazingly quarrelsome. But there are some pretty interesting folks as well. Not unlike any other anonymous public forum, really. Just ignore the ones you find shallow or rude, and you'll enjoy the site much more. And feel free to bit just a bit shallow every now and then, too - it's good for you!

    Well, if you had been here 5 years ago, you would have seen something different. A lot of the guys on here were very unlike the stereotypical shallow gay however, then came the trolls and those who really wanted to be heard, seen and thought they were so special. The result was over 100 members dumped the site and moved on to establish a new community leaving a much higher concentration of those that need attention, have no idea how to interact socially, continuously complain about how poorly they are treated, how the world owed them more, deprived them of happiness and couldn't find a nice word to share if they had to. Welcome to the new RJ!

    Are you new here, or a re-incarnaton of a past screenname?

    Too great a proportion of current posters on RJ came from the shallow end of the gene pool.

    Every gay man I have ever met/spoken with is quite shallow.
    Surprisingly, some of the least shallow gay people I've conversed with are on this website. Some aren't shallow at all.

    I've noticed that the shallow guys from this site are the ones that get the most attention and love in the forums. Trolls are glorified here.

    But what does the OP mean by shallow? You mean when you send messages or hotlist a guy and they don't respond?

    My thoughts also.
    Sometimes it's like a high school popularity contest.
    cutelad89Yes and many are here for all the wrong reasons.

    To be honest and fair I'm probably one of those.

    What did you expect? I wonder, why did you join the website? Don't tell me you came here looking for some brainstorming session?
    Most of the time guys come complaining here because they can't get any attention from the guys whom they find attractive. It isn't any different from the real world.
    I am sure OP rejects dozens of guys online or in real life, but when it happens to him, the world seems shallow.
    Again, shallowness isn't specific to any gender, race or sexuality. It's part of every human. Have you interacted with your heterosexual peers?

    At the first glimpse, this site probably does give that impression, but some of us here are genuine.

    Just watch out for the trolls and idiots and you'll do fine. You'll spot the troublemakers soon enough.

    The site is for many types and ranges of people but what i meant is some are here for chat, some here for fitness, some here for eye candy, some are plain and simply here for trolling.

    Shallow meaning that most gay guys seem to only ever be interested in the surface level type of relationships like the fact of getting a shag and never caring to actually have a relationship. A lot of gay men seem to be obsessed with flippant things over serious life things, not saying that you cant do what you want but i get what the OP means the gay community seems very very shallow.
