    This isn't really a question about "Relationships, Discrimination, and Jealousy," but it has to do with one's feelings about others, so of all the forum headings this one seemed to me the closest.

    If you have a gallery, how do you feel about the comments on your pics? Are you gratified by them or do you not much care? Those of you who have received a large number of comments on your pics, do you eventually lose interest in reading them?

    Speaking for myself, I have to say that I have been hugely gratified to read the comments on my pictures, especially the ones that seemed as if some special thought went into them. (I have spent most of my life as a scrawny guy and am still socially awkward, so being thought "hot" is a comparatively recent development that I am far from being used to!) So far, I am always excited when I see that someone has posted a new comment. This has led me to start posting comments on a lot of other members' pics when I liked them, since I assume that others will appreciate them much as I do. But then I wonder if they necessarily do so.

    They really boost my confidence level since i have issues with self-acceptance.

    At first, I was flattered... then all of the comments started sounding the same. It's gotten annoying. Maybe with some originality... D=

    I read all comments carefully. I keep a log of who says what, and if someone doesn't comment nicely -- or forgets to comment regularly -- I send them stale crackers in the mail.

    I didn't attach too much importance to comments back when I had a gallery - I attached the photos just to prove I was who I said I was. I was somewhat flattered by compliments, but that was tempered by the knowledge that the etiquette here was "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all".

    That said, the comments/compliments from people I knew from the boards meant more to me than the ones from semi-anonymous gallery surfers.

    I have had self-esteem and body issues since well before I entered puberty. :frown1: :redface: With every year I mature and grow as a person I learn self-acceptance.

    There have been about 3 or 4, 100% gay men (They know who they are) who felt the need to make horribly cruel, hateful, and rude criticisms of my pussy in my gallery comments. I wish to hell they wouldn't look.

    I have made a few negative comments in gallerys but ONLY when they were obviously photoshopped or stolen from another member or porn site. I would never dream of leaving a comment that a mans cock was ugly or too small or too big.

    Off Topic: I don't think it's a mistake that the people who make rude comments NEVER have a gallery or a profile. IMHO if you can't be bothered to show and tell as I do you should not be allowed into chat nor should you be allowed to post gallery comments. I t's cowardice combined with hatefulness that makes it so hurtful.

    Holy crap, I'm sorry to hear that, njqt466. I think that the vast majority of posters on this forum have the sense and decency to keep their opinions to themselves when they see something that doesn't agree with their taste. But it only takes a few troglodytes to cause a lot of hurt.

    Your pussy looks fine to me, by the way!

    Ditto....for me Calboner...well said; I also enjoy the PMs I get too.
    I hope my sense of humor sometimes doesn't offend anyone.
    I mean no harm or degrading to the males or females in the LPSG gallery.
    It does take some courage to share a pic on our site...it's all good.:wink: :cool:
    I'd share more if I had the computer equipment & knowlege to do it like some of our members.
    Maybe one of these days, I'll get more high tech and updated:smile:
    Thx for asking too!

    Ref to njqt466.....:eek:
    I'm sorry to hear this too about negative/troll comments directed at you:mad:
    The only criticsm I have is for me lickin and bumpin my head against my computer screen when I get to view your lovely pussy damnit.
    Perhaps they're just a bit jealous they don't have one... would you say:wink:
    The best way to get rid of a troll is to flush them away with unwanted shit...you know that darlin'.
    Love U:smile:

    Dude, you need to get your computing or photographic skills up to speed, and soon! I've seen the one photo in your gallery and, maddeningly fuzzy though it is, it makes clear that you are one fabulously gifted man. Share your gift with others! :smile:

    The funny thing is I often make glowing comments about the many beautiful 100% Gay men I see in the gallery. I'm not trying to convert them or anything I'm just stating my appreciation. I certainly hope I haven't grossed them out by doing so.:redface:

    I always appreciate someone taking the time to leave a flattering comment.
    I think we should be able to delete the trolls from our own galleries,though some would leave their comments visible so that everyone can see who they are.

    I appreciate anyone stopping what they are doing and taking the time to comment - I should do it more often. I often sigh and think.."how hot" and then move on.

    Yorkie, your comments are always so gorgeous xxx

    I don't have a ton of comments but I think people here are pretty nice and honest and out to make each other feel accepted.

    The gallery is a temporary confidence booster - at least that's what I use it for. Nothing wrong with that.

    Sorry to hear about the neg comments njqt. It is a far from perfect world, too bad we are reminded here at lpsg.

    It is nice to have the comments. If there weren't any, I would have to tuck all my stuff back in my pants which would be like locking up some wild animal because it is very dark and confining in there. I like it when others recognize some other quality besides just the inches I was born with.
