I was talking about this with a buddy over Yahoo fairly recently, and he said that he felt pretty disappointed keeping up with a few members from here, only to find out that they can't back up their claims or choose not to project their true, real selves in conversation. My friend was a little disappointed talking to guys who claimed to have garguantuan or truly huge measurements, only to find out on cam that they weren't as stacked as they thought. With the recent influx of members claiming near-infathomable sizes, stories, or livelihoods, I, too, must admit that my skepticism is on the rise. I don't know. I suppose my mood on this is somewhat confounded. I've had my fair share of Yahoo interactions with members who either lurk or rarely post, don't volunteer much information, or participates in real limited conversation. How big are you? (My measurements are posted somewhere.) Pic? (Yeah, check the gallery.) Is that really you? (Want to see proof on cam? Of course, it's me.) But anyway, hell... I'm sure people can be gigantic on here and purely 100% legitimate, whether or not they have digital proof of their goods. I know I've encountered enough people to flamboozle me -- until that all-around-the-Internet picture shows up in my e-mail box. So, fake porn pics don't do it for me. And, for that matter, eyebrows naturally perk up while reading someone's posts only to find out that they've switched dick sizes quite a few times. And not just a half-inch or so here or there. The way I see it, I try to be myself and nothing more. All my pictures are me, even if the webcam ain't all that great. I don't pretend to be anything I'm not, and it's not my job to impress people. I am thankful that people on here know who I am and feel comfortable interacting with me whether it's on the board or on Yahoo. I am appreciative of the blog hits. But I feel like if I had to pretend to be something I'm not, whether that's of the studly physical nature or changing my dick size, then that interaction would all feel really fake... and empty. And yeah, the Internet is the perfect place to be anything you want to be -- believable or not -- and that that need to be something great might stem from an insecurity elsewhere in your life. And while I feel for people who have to go through that, I also want them to remember one thing... People have come along for as long as I can remember with the sole purpose of flaming other members, posting ridiculous and/or inflammatory content, or getting a kick out of leading people into their web of lies. I like this support group a lot. It gives me really great information and good social interaction with people I normally wouldn't cross, I think. And I really treasure that. So before you follow through with the temptation to be something not, just remember that someone else is on the other end of that PC, hoping that you are nothing more than yourself so that they can have a good interaction with you. And if you're really you, you can feel comfortable knowing that you don't have to have any pretenses in order to feel cared about or to strike someone with your interest. Just be you. It's a lot to ask from the world wide Internet, but I think we could all suffice.
