    I didn't know I was a "type."


    I mean, honestly, What "type" am I?

    Don't take it personally, any gay guy worth his salt will hear this at least a few times in his dating career. I certainly did!

    For me it meant either I wasn't his physical type (I did not turn him on), or if he found me physically attractive, he didn't think there was a potential bond between us. Probably because we did not have enough in common to warrant getting to know each other better.

    Life goes on.. I'm not many guys type of guy... they find me uninteresting, or two cocky, to talkative or happy or just plain unattractive in what ever sense of the word..

    you shrug and move on

    Well not his obviously. Not the end of the world. As one poster already said - shrug and move onicon_smile.gif.

    This other guy just volunteered this information out of the blue like the voice of God or was it a response to something? Context.

    Not dating, I'm not sure if I see things more clearly or more naively, but a guy who would casually draw that conclusion w/ no more than a 15 second review of a profile would definitely not be MY type.

    I think it's just a less than subtle way of saying "no thank, I'm not into you". Ultimately, you cannot do anything about other people's desires or preferences and the sooner you come to terms with that fact then the happier you will be in life.

    Now this is the man you need to listen to. Voice of experience when it comes to revolving relationships.....tell you anything you need to know....you got a situation....he's got an experience.....no interpersonal relationship too small for his encyclopedic man-file. The man's personal magnetism has grown a veritable asteroid belt of affairs, affiliations, hookups, liaisons, and close encounters. ....All good, mind you. .... icon_biggrin.gif

    Hey Daniel.. you aren't a "type". Any "category" you are placed into is done by the perception of those who evaluate you.
    ... or by yourself, many times to your detriment.

    I'd forget it.. The next guy might have you in some "very hot" category.
    Be prepared! LOL

    I'd need more information to offer anything constructive.

    That means you did not light his firecracker or otherwise fulfill his fantasy. You just have to move on. There are about 6,706,993,152 people in the world .. about half of those are male .. not sure how many are gay adult men. Go out and find your type or fantasy.

    In a world of 7 BILLION folks, if you aren't someone's type, then, do yourself a favor and move on. Even a child can figure that one out.

    We all have our preferences, programmed at a genetic and social level. They just ARE. (flex89 and I watched a program last night on Discovery about just this topic.)

    Don't be so self-involved as to get wrapped up in it. If you don't hit it off with someone, go on to someone else. That's how the world is.

    True compatibility is often just "magic."
