    Well folks, Doppelganger Week was fun but it's over now (at least for me). I received numerous friend requests from gorgeous men simply as a result of that photo I used. Some of them stuck around, others left very quickly once they got the joke. It just confirmed what I think I already knew: In order to succeed in gay ...life, one must be as close to physical perfection as humanly possible. How sad for us.

    So true. When I lived in Boston years ago I was in a relationship with the most beautiful physically fit guy who was the biggest asshole I have ever known. I was 19. I bought in to the whole it's about the look too. Thank God with age I got self esteem. Lots of it........would love to bump into him today, just to look at probably a much older superficial guy. You take your looks to seriously, the older you get the less you smile.

    no, to be sexually attracted to you.



    The guys that were messaging you were probably trying to get in your pants.

    Sad but true for the most part.

    I do have to say that I have met people who seemed shallow only to find out otherwise. Sometimes the physical aspect is what initially attracts someone but they're actually not so superficial if you meet them. The whole myspace/facebook... hell even RJ, the idea of creating a profile to show your shit is really just a way to... well... show off your shit. Shallow? Yes. Narcissistic? Yes.

    In other words... you're probably not going to find anyone who isn't superficial "randomly". People you meet in real life tend to be more genuine

    Come on man... there's somebody out there for everyone. If you're surprised that "gorgeous guys" found your gorgeous doppelganger to be hotter than you are, then shame on you.

    But your conclusion "in order to succeed in gay life, one must be as close to physical perfection as humanly possible" is absurd. Define "succeed."

    This is a naive post, in my brutally honest opinion.

    You sound like you're let down that you can no longer use a hot dude's photo on your Facebook page. If it means that much to you, leave it up.

    By definition, a doppelganger is supposed to be someone you look like.. not an underwear model you want to fuck.

    The hottest guy is ALWAYS - yes, always - the one who is comfortable in his own skin and happy with himself.

    um your "Double" most certainly doesn't look like you lol.

    There are plenty of gay over-weight / under-weight guys who find each other, just if you expect to get someone with a SEKSI body and face, you need to have one yourself.... usually. At least body, especially if that person is dedicated to the gym and you're dedicated to the couch.

    Maybe they de-friended because they realized what a sink hole poor self esteem and negativity you were

    Demonstrated by this thread which you seek to share the misery with the world icon_neutral.gif

    That's such crap! If that were true nobody would go home alone!

    They say being fat is a death sentence in the gay community. I say be yourself, or you will lose yourself.

    I don't know if it's a death sentence, but I've learned not to get too excited about meeting new guys.

    So you mean I can't use Jude Law or Ryan Reynolds as my doppelganger?

    Sooooooooooooooooo I'll be that "Guy".

    Why did you feel the need to falsely advertise yourself in order to get people to even talk to you? No offense but if you had to pretty much lie about yourself with a pic and they quickly "unfriended" you then it's rightly justifiable since you did misrepresent yourself regardless of what their intentions were.

    Can you really blame them? In doing so you might've thought you were proving a point but at the same time you just proved that you are unhappy with yourself because you feel you gotta be someone else in order to get noticed hence the doppelganger stunt you pulled which would be a classic case of absurd. That's just sad.

    If you can't like yourself then how can you expect others too? You're experiment is flawed on more then just what the obvious answer you sought is. It's starts at home.

    I think guys are just superficial in general. But I also think that a lot of people seek out conventional good looks because it's what is expected of them. No one can argue that Chris Evans is ugly. However, I think there all sorts of other kind guys people find attractive (that might not movie star good looks).

    You should know that 99% of the guys with giant sweaty six packs and model stares are often unappealing to me. The attractiveness comes from the voice, the personality, the smile and circumstance. That sort of bond you can feel with someone. FML I'm so fucked.

    Well you know what they saw.

    "It's all fun and games til someone gets hurt."

    If it was just in fun then why bother making a comment like this? Sounds and looks like it didn't turn out to be so fun for you regardless og whatever week it was on facebook.

    Yup. Totally agree with you here! Although, having that sweaty six pack definitely does not hurt...
