    I can't just show my face openly like the other members do, since I am still in the closet. Secondly I found out a relative, who I'm also having a bitter relationship with, is also a member of RJ, so yeah.

    1. Not here for attention
    2. I'd rather choose who I want to talk to instead of rejecting people and hurting their feelings
    3. Guys without pics are usually better looking(from my experience)
    4. People can steal your photos and make fake profiles
    5. Putting your pics up for everyone to see makes you old news, people get bored of your face
    6. I'd rather be judged on how I behave and what I say instead of how I look
    7. It's not like I'm going to meet anyone on here in person, so what's the point?

    I do unlock for my hot listings or people I message out of common courtesy, and I'm not closeted

    Some of those. But also some of us travel to places (or live in places), or work in jobs where we need to maintain a low profile for safety reasons. In certain kinds of work, if your face is online, and you disclose even what seems to be innocuous info, you will open yourself up to be a target, literally. I know there are others on here who understand that.

    My reason is pride. Was out of the closet long before I had my pic up on any dating site or app.

    Well your experience is definitely different from mine. I usually find the opposite to be true.

    Yep, I agree with the opposite to be true. Good luck trying to convince people that your blind date will be Channing Tatum.

    looks like we have a new drama about to brew.

    but yeah, i feel you on that, dude. i'm still in the closet to plenty of people that i know BUT pretty much working my way on getting out of there which is why i've taken the step to not hide my face and identity to prepare myself for it when i tell them the one thing that i've been hiding or lying about to them. coming out is one of those things that requires self preparation. support groups and being around gay people helps BUT once you have to tell that person, you're ALL by yourself. that overwhelming sense of fear where you don't want to do it because of the negatives. coming out is scary. afterwards, it's a relief IF they take it well.

    and yes, it is a SMALL world out there. i've actually ran into people on here that actually know my homies who don't know that i'm gay. they can pretty much spill the beans if they wanted to though i asked them to not say anything and that i would too do the same thing out of respect for them. this web shit is deep. a lot of people are rolling in secrecy.


    Thanks for the encouragement. *fist bumps*

    I decided to hide completely tho, I had enough of drama from my life. I just need a quiet, simple yet blissful and peaceful life. icon_smile.gif

    Most people that don't have a face pic, are trying to hide something and I will not even chat with anyone, if they can not show me their face.

    Thanks for the kind reminder, buddy. icon_smile.gif
    My pics are in private and I only show them to those with profile pics. Other wise I'm wary with those no-face pics or profiles with no photos.

    Sorry Martin. 1:33 was all could stand of your voice.

    I suppose you didn't think that some of the men may not show their faces as a community service to keep from scaring wildlife and children. The reason I say you didn't think of it is because you didn't think of it before posting your audio/video which scared my cats and made my dogs run inside to find out if there was a squirrel on drugs in the solarium.
