    Perhaps I misunderstand the purpose of dating apps. Are online and real life not supposed to overlap?

    this is not necessarily a bad sign: means you left a mark on people if they can remember you from a bottomless(no pun intended) list of horny eager beavers, means you can now follow up with "ok, so did you like what you saw?" and go on from there.

    You've got a window of opportunity here that you can slide thru before it closes....

    It's complicated
    A. You know you supposed to have a blank pic up there and then play the pic game: Send me a pic first homie since you hit me up first.

    B. If you gonna have your pic visible, you need to remember to take that shyt down when you get back to your neighborhood. That way the neighbors aren't running into you are the stop sign asking if you live in so-and-so complex down the street.

    C. Damn, you definitely outta the closest with your pics splashed across all them apps. You as famous and recognizable as Walter L. Hampton.

    ***footnote to C.*** since you so well known and recognizable now, you have zero chance of getting with a masculine bottom because they are going to be treating you like you used to treat those fem dudes who were social media famous a few years back. Will masculine discreet homies want to be spotted with Nick Delmacy at Dave & Busters; therefore, being outed? Stay tuned. This is getting interesting. LOL

    @Sean P and @Infinite_loop Yea, like the both of you, I thought that was the whole point as well. lol
    I dont get it.

    I mean I know there are men on there that don't show face as the main profile (those I dont give the time of day either). But I have my face as the main picture and I give zero fvcks personally about if anyone recognizes me. Im single and Im out here available and interested in meeting guys or casual hook ups. I dont see anything wrong with the.

    However, Nick has the right to feel the way he does. But I agree with your action, if you never want to be recognized by any of those apps, just delete them all.

    I don’t understand how this is such a mysterious idea for so many of you. My goal in getting on the apps was not to become a local gay celebrity getting approached by strangers on the street.

    Let me ask you this, which would generate a better response from you in public:

    Stranger: Excuse me, what’s your name? I think you have a dope style, we should hang out some time.

    Or this:

    Stranger: Hey, you’re on Jack’d right? I recognize you from your profile.

    Sir Nick, So you have all these guys chasing after you and you ain't snatched one of them up yet. I've been listening to the podcasts to get a sense of you guys, I still got a ways to go. I'm about to download the Bottom panel and listen to it.

    Didn't you guys do one about why gay men remain single and a podcast on Jack'd? I'm looking for that one too.

    Anyways, I had a guy recognize me once from an app & it creeped me tf out.

    He was just like, "I think I know you from somewhere," and then he said my old screen name and I just looked him and nervously smiled...

    It's always creepy to me when a blank profile hits you up also and says something like, "I want you.." and you ask them who is this and they don't respond.

    I deleted every single dating app I had because I'm annoyed by them and the dudes on them. Plus even though, I've thought about hooking up before, I kinda don't want my neighbors to hear me getting f**ked by some guy either....thinking on past experiences. I don't want no kids hearing that.

    I've never used Tinder though and I see it mentioned on here a few times.

    I'm gonna come to ATL and be like.."Get together Sir Nick..Get it together," and then I'mma go find a restaurant.

    If dudes are sweating you on the street without the app(s), you should definitely delete them. Problem solved...

    I feel like folks don't realize that apps (and by extension, all of social media) are a two way street. You may have a certain emotional response to someone recognizing you from your profile, but that doesn't mean that it makes sense to have a prohibition against people doing that. If you don't want that to happen, don't put your picture in your profile. That might mean you get fewer responses (I don't respond to faceless profiles) but you will definitely not have anyone recognizing you on the street from your profile, so problem solved.

    Anything further than that is just policing the behaviors of other people.

    What makes you delete the apps if the purpose is to find companionship? It's the same thing as if someone were to notice you from IG.
    The sole purpose or social media is visibility.
    If you are uncomfortable with being acknowledged in a public setting, you should edit your photos so you're not completely visible.
    And if you are as handsome as you sound, you probably don't need the apps and guys will flock to you regardless. Just get out there :)
