Seriously I'd like to know?
Some gay men are so self-centered, they float through life and expect the entire world to revolve around them.
Blame their mothers
Thank God there are no self-centered straight people!
Some gay men are so self-centered because they learned it from self-centered straight people who do it so well because they aren't as self-loathing as some gay folks.
That's equality babe.
Some gay men are selfless.
Go find them, OP. Go find the well rounded people.
HINT: They won't be at the bar at 2 am, or the club, or at Hollister.

There's no way to stop it! You can't stop it, even if you try.
Or Datalounge, R5.
Trust me, I am surrounded all the time by self centered people of all ilks. It seems everyone is self centered these days. But to the extent that gays tend towards this, it might be because they are not generally forced by circumstances to think of others; spouse, children, grandchildren, etc.
Huh, OP? I was thinking about my own problems just then. Could you repeat what you said?
R10 has a great point.
When a gay man is so self-centered, they tend to treat others so shitty.
Probably, OP, for the same reasons some straight people are self-centered.
R10 wants to head back to all the b.s. floating around in the "why are gay men self-absorbed" and "why are so many gay men single" threads. The bullshit meter exploded on those threads and R10 is a homophobe who wants to go back there because he enjoys wallowing in shit.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
