several folks have recently guessed my age as being in my early 30's...no, they weren't shining me on.
The fact is, if you want any kind of serious relationship, it will doubtlessly be public. I'm not necessarily worried about people finding out (i'm more worried about the wrong people finding out.) I'm not paranoid - I'm just worried. So I really would like to find some companionships (think of that sentence as you may...) Do you think it really deters people? It's tough because 99 percent of the guys on these sites want a pic. Leave your Skype ID in your profile, tell people you are okay to do vedio talk. I think if people are really into you, they will try to find out what you look like.
I'd be willing to wager that the situation is solvable in a way where you can have both your career and a relationship, without running around in the shadows. Guys who don't send pix know there is a damn good reason why they are not showing their pix. They have something to hide and they know it...pix will tell the truth. There are two other things to think about: If you find someone through one of these sites, they will be either closeted or out. I'm sure that this thread could have relevance to a great many people, like photoguy93, if you care to reread his post.I know people in the deepest southern, most conservative towns that have come out and continued to be successful. If I do get into financial problems, will the same folks who are advising me to go public be willing to step up and give me money to bail me out of the mess if I get wiped out? Honestly, there's no care free, easy way to meet guys unless you know a Hollywood makeup artist. Often we get ourselves so stuck in a mindset that we don't even allow ourselves the luxury of considering alternatives... I stand by what I said - you have to make a decision. But if it makes a difference, just find some website. Once you take marriage vows, you have what a sacred sanctity.However, with up to 50 percent of all marriages ending in divorce, that's not exactly the case anymore—and online dating platform is well aware of this fact.
