DannyW saidWhat's so special about confidence anyways?
Are there no guys who like guys with low self esteem/confidence? (or maybe even prefer guys with low self esteem?)
Well you see falls under the same category as most gay guys flat refuse to get involved with gay men who have 'issues', even though a full third of LGBT have 'issues'. And the majority of others have greater risks for many other things.Pro-tip: those ads where they say 'No Drama' translates to 'no-issues'

I suspect the real issue is that most of us have issues and can't handle that fact thus project this sense of 'I's better than you's' and make unrealistic demands.
Due to how we are treated for being gay, most of us lack confidence to one level or another and have some form of 'self esteem' issue. You can only be told you are a perv, sicko, going to hell a few times before it starts taking its toll.Pro-tip: Every time someone uses 'gay' as a negative such as 'that shirt is so gay' is telling you that YOU are bad.
The other side of this coin is many gay men are looking for a partner who will 'fix' them. It is assumed that someone with low self esteem/confidence is unable to make another person happy, content and actually assist others.
Which is actually quite contrary as many people who do have low self esteem tend to be more compassionate/empathic and try to help others.
There are other forces at work, these are just the largest ones.
