    Erik101 saidI know a guy who does something similar. He states his high exec job as a way to meet guys and then proceeds to invite them to his home and show them the stuff he has. Example....his marble bathroom with a bidet.

    He continues to be single and I want to know his thoughts on why he can't find a relationship.


    If you look around on this site, I would say that about 90% of the men on realjock are single. And these guys are extremely attractive and built men.


    Not trying to be rude, but figuring out on why attractive, muscle men who can't get a date is not interesting. You usually get the same response: too picky, haven't met the right guy, wants an equal, etc.

    Guys with money however, that's different because I used to work in investment banking and it's interesting to see how money changes people into something they're not.

    If someone flaunts their car, ask them if you can have it icon_lol.gif.

    Now, I will admit, I love to pick up a date in this, and I am looking for a big bruiser of a cruiser just like this 61 PIMPerial.

    uombroca saidI had a date, when met through OkCupid. He is a real estate agent. We met at my condo first for a glass of wine, chatting before heading to the restaurant. When I decided to drive since I knew the area, we were heading to the garage to get my car and said "Oh you drive a Chevrolet"...I said yes. I said what do you drive. "Oh a BMW 4 series only the best car"...I knew then it would be a rough night of a date...sure enough he turned out to be a bad date. He obviously was judging on what I drove as a means of measuring someone. Suffice to say we never contacted each other, which was great do not need that kind of mentality.


    BMW 4 series is hardly the best car - in Johannesburg even it was quite a common vehicle


    And among homosexual LA residential real estate agents, it's almost required.

    Now that's very possible, circa 1963 & 64.

    And would be much more fun if the PIMPerial was equipped with the Mobile Director

    metta8 saidIt is not just a gay guys thing. I have known straight people who feel the need to flaunt what they are driving. It sounds silly when people say, 'I took the Mercedes to the store' instead of 'I went to the store.'


    I had a married non-gay neighbor who made a point of mentioning his Rolex.


    Man I need more sleep. At first glance I read that as:

    'I had married a non-gay neighbor who made a point of mentioning his Rolex'

    I've met more men through riding a bicycle than I ever did driving a fancy car.

    Not the case with old interesting cars regarding meeting folks. But yeah, I primarily biked (roadie) in SoCal and loved it.

    Get up early and with laptop in backpack bike to the boardwalk at Venice beach for breakfast and also get a little work done.

    I think it is at best naïveté (thinking gay men's minds work like women's) and at worst a deal-breaker. Having said that, I am thinking of buying a pair of Loboutins for men to wow dates with.

    I LOVE the old Imperial's. Mercedes are ok, as long as you can afford to repair the fuckers…

    It's not how much money you have; it's about how much class and character do you have ;)

    This happens in the straight dating world too, usually with men trying to impress a women or playing into a need to find someone who can provide resources. In NYC at gay bars you'll find people trying to impress you name dropping or saying "I just came back from my Fire Island rental/ the Hamptons" *translation they got an AirBnB or were with 12 other people sharing the place for the weekend to split the cost*

    It's also foolish because you don't know who you could be talking too, a lot of truly affluent people just look like average people.

    I know a few very wealthy people who you will never guess, even if they invite you to their homes! they are the real wealthy ones! you don't need to look like a million to be a millionaire!

    That's how I started losing money once the buying and selling turned into buying 'mechandise' that I really wanted to drive.

    Four cars, the 600, 6.9, XJ12C and RR Silver Shadow cost me just about as much for repairs as I made on the other cars. Had I stuck with 60s and early 70s high line domestics I'd probably still be doing this.

    A guy that has to rely on his car probably doesn't have that much in the looks category and that's what counts for me.

    If somebody is handsome and nice, I don't care if he's a janitor making $8 an hour. I'm not rich, but I have all the money and material possessions I need.

    I like this answer, of course. I think it's tacky that some Rich people have to announce to the world that they're rich. LOL, don't judge a book by its cover. Have you wondered why they're still single? Because they act like douches.

    Never drive a car so much better looking than you.

    The aesthetic mismatch is always unflattering.

    Let me be honest. If you drive an antique vehicle, please, please, please be an organ donor.

    Prepare to eat your steering wheel...and dashboard.

    Well, here's the thing...

    I'd need to run a credit check and see his bankbooks. Because oftentimes it's all smoke and mirrors. The Mercedes' leased. The house has a second on it. He's maxed out his credit cards. He's taken hardship distributions on his 401K with no other retirement savings.

    You see, I'm not shallow.

    bhp91126 saidTo each his own. Maybe that line would work on guys who are as materialistic as your suitors? At least they told you right away that you wouldn't get along.


    It used to upset as much as HndsmKansan! but I took it as good clue that the guy wasn't my type, and that was good, thank God! I once dated a guy with beautiful white BMW. he then went on by showing off its tv/radio/gps/cd/computer/and I can't remember what else stereo system in his car. We did have a nice dinner, and that is all I can remember! material things don't impress me at all!



    It's just another filter like, ripped or smoker or smart or outdoorsy or romantic. or Poz. It amazing how useless the questions OK Cupid asks since they beat around the bush. Some guys are looking for 4 star hotels and expensive cars. It saves one a lot of time by putting it all out front in the beginning rather than spending a 100 bucks on a going nowhere date.

    I will say that NHTSA knew just the right car to pick for a center offset head-on. Try that with a perimeter frame or unit body old car and results wouldn't be quite as spectacular. An X frame 59 Chevy was the perfect pick.

    No question new iron is light years safer, but I'll take a few risks to keep this wonderful old iron on the road.

    However, if you want to talk about taking risks? I presume you don't butt fuck?
