If your profile is verified does it naturally get viewed by more guys?

    Thanks! I'm pretty sure I set my profile to private on day one as I got a bit scared. I mean to be honest, if someone DID 'accidentally' find me on here, I would just learn not to care - but I certainly don't want it to be majorly obvious in any way. And it's nothing to do with being gay: if I was straight I would be equally embarrassed to have my friends know what sort of porn I watch or how many times I jerk off a day. Embarrassment is not shame...

    The reason why I post the things I do on here (no matter how crude) is because I never had that chance when I was younger, I never had and still do not have any 'gay friends' so RJ in a way provides an outlet for me to express personal interests that I have stubbornly hidden in the past. I like sex, I'm not going to lie, and I feel that I should have the right to express that without being judged by any persons.

    This is not a stab at you in any way btw!

    I agree totally with you and it's exactly the same for me, I like to be able to talk openly with other gay guys on here as I don't do that in my real life, but I like the level of anonymity it gives. I'm verified but set so only logged in members can see me. I think that's enough.

    By the way, how on earth can you fake being verified??

    But surely if you really want to find out who's real, can't you just use a webcam?

    This business of verification although well intentioned, sounsds like it causes a divide between non-verified and the verified members. Will verified members just say 'no, I'm not talking to you cos I don't know if you're real or not!'. That doesn't sound plausible nor realistic.

    I try to talk to anyone on RJ verified or not (I never even check) - they may not be who they say they are but at least I'm still talking to a real person. I will never ever meet up with them anyway so it doesn't really matter to me. If it did, we would just webcam or use facebook.

    What do you think? icon_wink.gif
