But they can't throw those cards away when a real hottie comes along, so they'll just ignore it and pretend like they never saw the hottie so they can maintain face to the public... meanwhile they're looking for ways to call the girl a slut as to take the hotness down a notch with a chance of venereal diseases. lol...
It's not a pretty theory, but in my 29 years of existence around women (growing up in a house of 5 of them), I'm pretty confident it's not even a character flaw, but simply a deep-rooted survival mechanism or some shit.

I don't even think they mean to do it. But they do. All the time.
These statements are so sexist.

...

But also incredibly accurate.

But not one shows up when a sexy babe has a new pic up. It's like a self-defense mechanism for the insecure.
Yeah seriously, this is common on myspace too.

Well hell, now even if I wanted to post something about how smoking hot Ana is, and how if I were a guy, I'd totally hit that...it would just be weird.

Thanks guys...thanks.

As for me, the reason why I don't reply to "sexeh babes" photos is that I never reply on someone's sexehness.
And never really understood posting a pic of one's self, the same day that person joins. I wouldn't think anyone would care about some anonymous person's picture, even if they're the most beautiful creature on the planet. So that's another reason.
Absurd, I say (or repeat).
Yeah, it's a lot more fun to get to know people on the forum first, get them to speculate over what you really look like and then show them pictures.

I think it's annoying when all of the guys on here are all over some girl.
I wish more people were like that with Kayleigh, she's ****ing gorgeous.
Or Dayna, cause she is too.
Lateralus is one of the few girls on here who deserve all of the compliments she gets on her looks.

I don't completely disagree with this. In fact, I see where you're coming from very clearly.

My only issue is that you seem to think this "niceness" comes from a self-absorbed place. Why can't a compliment be given to a less attractive person and it be considered genuine?

Kayleigh is really pretty. But I'm not familiar with the other member you mentioned. So I can't really comment. I assume you were talking about Savannah and Vanilla when you say "all over some girls", correct me if I'm wrong?

See, you're a girl, and therefore you have a jaded perspective of relative female attractiveness levels. What's attractive to you might not be the same for most guys (and vice-versa, I'm sure).

If men here are forthcoming about how they feel about women here, it's out of genuine attraction for them and not some dour attempt to ingratiate themselves into another notch on the bed post.

my experience says, if you look ridiculous hot and are only posting professional photos one of two things is happening: you're spamming or planning on it, or you're another bandteacher. it's not like a real model wouldn't have regular 'bad' photos like the rest of us.
