    I just don't get it. This is a gay site. Why do guys post pictures of themselves with girls? Total buzz kill. Especially when it's their main shot. And do these girls or woman know their faces are being shown on this site? It's great having friends but when you're posting pictures here it should just be of you.

    I agree. Total buzz kill


    And while we are on the subject...

    Guys in monogamous relationships should include a pic of their partners

    And if you are standing in front of some site of obvious interest, caption the pic and tell us what we are looking at so we can enjoy the pic more.

    Because this is a social site with people posting pictures of them selves in a natural environment. What turns me off is a profile with nothing but shirtless underwear pictures I like to see the other side of a dude just being himself with some buddies or bunnies no harm in that.icon_wink.gif

    In my book, girls in profile pics beat out faceless pics and profiles without photos.

    I don't really need a picture of someone's ass as their main forum pic.

    I wish we could just use avatars like other forums.

    People want to show off, put themselves on display. Most of the time.

    Maybe if this was a hook-up site it might be off putting, but this is a fitness and nutrition site with a social networking aspect. I would suggest that if you don't want to see girls, parents, kids or pets in someone's profile, stick to your manhunt account.

    The male websites are a respite from the females. I am over-surrounded by them at work so I'm overly not wanting to deal with them when I get home and go boi-hunting. If it's your mother or sister, that demonstrates that your family is supportive and a model for the families that we drag kicking and screaming into our gay lives. Then that's a good thing. If it's a friend, then, yeah, do they know their pic is posted on a gay site? It's distracting, more than attracting. You might be acting. I'm sounding like Jessie Jackson on the pulpit now. Time to end.

    "a fitness and nutrition site with a social networking aspect" that lets you post "Adult Photos"... wonder what THAT could mean.

    You would post pictures of your kids here? Wow. Now I've heard it all.

    Huh...so a gay site should preclude pictures with females? You made no comment re: guys in pictures with other guys...are you against that too? (let's hear THAT hypocritical reply) icon_twisted.gif

    The "buzz kill" bit is hilarious. Really. HILARIOUS. There are other sites oriented more directly to your crotch, so why not visit one of them for the, uh, "buzz" you are looking for? (and stop complaining about something so mindlessly trivial in the interim) Meanwhile, this complaint may have been a bit more valid (if still laughable) coming from someone that actually shows their head in their profile pictures.

    Oh, and barriehomeboy, do you ask guys if they are related to the females you're complaining about (so as to discern that 'acceptable' familial relation)? Personally, I find your use of "boi" as laughable as this thread, but to each his own, eh? Building on that idea, many men find family to be an extended idea, so the selfish, clone-oriented imposal of an all-male website (particularly one that targets fitness, health & life), pictorially or otherwise, is moronic.

    Actually, some members have in the past posted pictures of their children.

    One of them is on my hotlist, and another one is from Minnesota and has the most adorable autistic son you've ever seen.

    This site is different things to different people, and who are you to try to define this site for the rest of us? You've been here a year and you have six posts.

    Pics with friends are great, male or female it shows the man behind the profile has a depth of character, loves and is loved. Ditto for the kids, the parents and the pets.


    Watch porn if you need a crank.icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif
