    That would be a good idea. Somehow I feel that all of the flame wars would grow even larger though...



    Nobody is ignoring you on purpose, I promiseicon_wink.gif

    I've actually made quite a few friends on here. There are a lot of great people on this site.

    Maybe you should put more in your profile about what you like to do and your interests and it could spark more conversations with people. You are very cute too which helps icon_smile.gif

    Well, this does appear to be your first post, so I wouldn't panic yet. As suggested above, fill out your Profile, post some more, the rest will just happen. icon_smile.gif

    I have made really good friends on here. In fact... I have a pretty impressive crush on one of my RJ friends.

    I haven't had much luck here, but it makes me feel as if I am part of the gay community that I rarely venture into anymore. It's nice to feel accepted and belonging to a community.

    You just have to speak up lad!icon_eek.gif I am sure there are lots of people that would like to know you!

    Maybe you should describe yourself and the things you like in your profile section .. it's an ice breaker and helps people find common interests perhaps icon_biggrin.gif

    Here's a saying you should perhaps apply: Anything worth doing should be worth doing well. Noting that, take a look at your own profile. You were so lazy as to not enter data, nor to put forth anything of interest to the viewer.

    You got back just what you put into, and, yet, you're complaining. If you make no effort, you should expect nothing in return. That's not a complicated equation to figure out. DOH! Doh! DOH!

    I suggest walking away from the computer for a moment, going to the library and getting a book; a classic: How To Win Friends And Influence People by Dale Carnegie.

    Folks like to associate with those that they share a common interest with, be it being a Real Jock, cultural, socio-economic, academic, military, and so on. You made no effort to drive any interest in you, and you got back exactly what you put forth: nothing. Having a penis, or liking dick, is generally to broad of an interest to get inquiries from others unless they're bottom of the barrel.

    It has nothing to do with being judgmental (good judgment is a very good thing), prejudice (we like folks we share common interests and experiences with), or being obnoxious (I share little in common with someone inactive, out-of-shape, that smokes, and is looking for a sexual connection, so it makes good sense not to deal with those folks.)

    Tell folks, via your profile, what you're looking for. Learn the art, and decorum, of good conversation. It doesn't start with a blank profile, or something dumb like "Top, or bottom?", or "You're hot." You need to be engaging in conversation. It's o.k. to have some manners, but, stupid to be animated and all-accepting.

    Another thing, try team sports (in Real Space), going out (in Real Space), or going somewhere with a friend, in Real Space.

    Hold yourself to a higher standard, and the rest will follow.

    After reading through the forum topics this week, I have concluded that nobody wants to be your friend if one or more of the following apply to you..

    - You're over 25 years old.
    - You wear Abercrombie & Fitch or Diesel clothing.
    - Refer to yourself as boy or boi or lad.
    - Don't own an iphone.
    - Wear Speedos at the beach.
    - You are effeminate.
    - You describe yourself as masculine or laid back.
    - Have a picture of your crotch in your profile.
    - Smoke cigarettes. (But marijuana is ok).
    - Drive a convertible.
    - You're from LA.
    - Your ethnic background is anything other than Martian.
    - You are not Verified and/or a Supporter.
    - You have not been on this site since Day 1.
