Why are almost all the gay men show pics of "themselves" looking all good?

    Really! If you have bodies like that then you don't need a dating site. At least not as many eye I'm seeing on here.

    Unless a gay guy is heavily involved in "the scene" they will need to have a profile on a dating site. We are not as likely to meet someone in the supermarket or at work. As to why they use flattering photos, I suppose it is a similar reason to why people use a spoon and not chopsticks to eat lentil soup.

    This is a fitness site primarily and we all now what attracts us. We like men who look good so we try to look good.

    Exactly.

    RJ started as a fitness site and as many of Us got to know one another it morphed into more of a social site. It is safe to say none of Us had difficulty getting attention when We went out or had difficulty meeting other Guys. This may be hard for some some to grasp -- but many of Us actuallly like one another and enjoy the interaction.

    The dating element is relatively new. Most Members don't use it that way and the long time Regulars rarely if ever do....although a few sparks have been known to fly here and there.

    I didn't realize showing pics of oneself looking good was only a "gay man" thing. We must be Instagram's sole means of support.

    Didn't you get the memo? Gays only meet online these days.

    I think you're just buying into a myth that guys with good bodies are different somehow. The only difference between someone who is in shape verses someone who is not in shape is a lifestyle choice.
