Oh Cory, I think I might have found the answer to your query, "Why cant people be real and not give those stupid pick up lines and just get to know someone, really know them[?]
???I am just your average hottie haha nah im a basic guy with basic needs. Love the outdoors, movies, music and just good old fun. Not looking for anything other than good friends. Not into random hook ups or having sex just to have it. Rather have good friends if its possible in this gay world.
Who does this describe? You? Or just about anybody else on this site? Who does not enjoy outdoors (in some fashion), movies (of some category), music (of some genre)...and just good old fun (as defined by each of us in our own taste)? And who wouldn't like to have "good friends"...and doesn't thinks himself above "random hookups or having sex just to have it"...but wouldnt turn it down with a hottie?
Well, it describes everybody, doesn't it?
May I suggest that you take the time and trouble and make the effort to develop your profile to tell more specifically who you are. Give specifics to the outdoors, movies, music and good old fun, so others of like ilk can connect with you initially on the similar interests beyond your pic. Because, really, that is the only thing on your profile that distinguishes you from anyone else presently...oh, I am wrong...your pics just show a hunk of meat...handsome...but still only skin deep and indistinguishable from the rest of us. So dont be surprised that the initial contacts are only "skin deep."
