DG the Stoic!

I've made friends at the sceptics meetings I go to to the point they are glad to see me when I turn up, which is nice, but no romantic attractions.

I understand about the photo - but I can honestly say of the profiles I view, the ones without a photo I tend to pass by, it's a strange bit of psychology, but there's a profile saying 'pay attention to me but I won't show you what I look like!' Well alright yes I can understand there may be reasons for reticence but I'm much more likely to stop and read your profile and consider your advert as a person deserving of my affections if there is a photo I can see. Imagine if every time you introduced yourself to someone you hid your face? It's a bit like that.

I've heard craigs list is to be avoided at all costs, but there are other alternatives.

Honestly I find Match and OKC to be quite alright for both, types of people and for the atheistic contingent.

I think y'all just got to start looking in some new places. Also bitter is not good. Try stoic.

Who smeared Vaseline on the lens?

Anyway you might be too late - I may have wrangled a date with a cute guy from Manchester.

He is a runner and totally gorgeous. I've been hoping he'd reply to me eventually and eventually for the fourth time of trying - he did!

Persistence pays off!

He's friendly if you have something you want.

Correction: He's friendly if you have something he wants.

Richard: "I am not tall dark and handsome, though I probably don't have rabies either."

I always told men, when describing myself online or over the phone, that "I don't turn heads, but I'd like to think I don't turn stomachs, either."

-----

I'm kind of behind here on the posts from a few days ago, but like you other guys I find it impossible to meet other men. I've pretty much given up.

Besides my personal problems, like being unable to drink, losing my hearing in one ear, and not having a lot of expendible income to go out and stuff, I find that it is impossible to 1.) meet anyone who shares my interests, 2.) who's not an effin' retard who cares more about Cher than social justice, 3.) is genuine and sincere and honest and loving., 4.) who isn't silly, pretentious, or superficial.

I've been to quite a few of the atheist meetings in my area, but there are not gays there, and to be honest, I haven't been overwhelmed by the people there anyhow. I've never made friends with any of them.

I've been on gay meet up lists, but they are always inactive. To most of the guys there, it is just about cruising. I tried to chat with one guy on the Meet-up list (who I was not interested in physically) about music. He had posted some artists and I emailed him about them and other music. He just wrote back, "send a pic." IDK, gay men are just so superficial. Then you have all these gay christian fucks who are damn near certifiable.

I've been on some dating sites, but I WILL NOT post my real photo. I worry too much about people I work with, or people I don't know real well or only casually finding out more about me than I feel comfortable with. Plus, the few men I've chatted with on those sites are pretty dumb.

Craigslist is practically useless. I often email people looking for friends, you know "just moved to the area and I don't know anyone," and 90% don't bother to respond. It take effort to make friends, but these jerks can't even bother to reply to an email. Happens all the time, too.

One guy, who was in a relationship and just wanted friends, told me I was too smart for him. It was idiotic! Another guy in a relationship wanted friends but wouldn't put in the effor to meet or call, but when another guy gave him a free ticket to the symphony, he jumped on that and then told me about it later. I figured him out pretty quick. He's friendly if you have something you want.

I'm pretty bitter about all this, in case you haven't noticed. I'm a good person. I'm smart, responsible, kind, considerate, but I don't pretend to be perfect. None of that matters to gay men, at all. I spend all my time alone. All of it.

If I sold drugs, or looked like a model, or had lots of money, things would be different. It's very disappointing.

Richard, that's so right. This is for you:

Craigery Morgan acting out a SNL skit involving Christopher Walken and Kristen Wiig. Happy weekend, gays!

Jay, you are correct. Watching him is like watching Kathy Lee. He is painfully simple, and egotistical. I feel sorry for Mika, too.

Like two men, sunbathing together on a beach...
