Leonardo DiCaprio who famously dated supermodels Gisele Bündchen, Bar Refaeli and Erin Heatherton seems to be losing his touch. A few months ago his advances were rejected by 25 year-old Next model Heather Hahn in New York.
At Cannes, where the 38 year-old Great Gatsby actor was greeted as a conquering megastar, he did not seem to have the same effect on 20 year-old British model of the moment Cara Delevingne. According to Life & Style...
"Leo kept hitting on her at the 'Great Gatsby' bash at Cannes ... He even lunged at her at one point, and she dodged him ... He was begging her to go back to his hotel room, but she declined."
Maybe she has a really hot younger brother and knows Leo's intentions aren't for her
Leo is considered to be a doddering old fuck by these nubile young women. Today's straight girls think anything past 30 is ancient. Oh and Leo has gotten fat.He's not as cute as he once was so pussy is not as available. Oh and for all the queens that think he's the world's greatest cocksman/dickhound, sorry kids. He likes pussy...too!
I don't know if Leo is gay or not, but either way, the non-stop chasing models (for either beards or girlfriends) is really getting old and frankly a bit creepy.
My sense is that he is homosexual.
He looks like he smells of booze and pork rinds.
Anything but gay. His PR people would rather he be seen as a predator, sexual harasser, or stalker. ANYTHING but gay.
Leo's been famous since he was a teenager. So he never really had a normal life in terms of his socialization process. He's also been a "teen heartthrob" so he never had to develop a personality or learn how to interact with women young or old, in a social environment.
He's pretty one dimensional. His friends are all in the industry. So he's relied on his fame and his looks to get girls. Or boys. It's not working the way it used to. The girls he hits on are getting younger and younger and a lot of them blow him off.
Something must have happened between him & Erin Heatherton because she dropped him and never looked back. Maybe the younger ones don't want to be beards. Maybe they think he needs to join the 21st Century.
I wish Shirley Q Liquor would do a video discussing whether or not Leenardo Dicaprios is one uh them homosexicals.
[quote]Something must have happened between him & Erin Heatherton because she dropped him and never looked back.
I'm not sure what you mean by "never looked back". Isn't this what most people do when they break up?
Cara is a Lesbian so he was probably checking her out as potential beard material. Rita Ora would soon put a stop to that though hahaha
R2. I work in the arts. Recently we had a very famous male performer appear at our venue. During the post-show reception, it was quite obvious that this guy was quite interested in my female co-worker.
He's 44; she's 28. He was very pleasant, polite and friendly, but she made it clear that she was not going out for a late-night something to eat with him. She just wasn't interested. His age wasn't the entire reason, but it certainly was a factor from what she said.
Leo is disgusting to look at these days.
Maybe Leo should use the same agency Clooney uses to procure his beards.
[quote]Leo is disgusting to look at these days.
You mean to tell me you don't think this is beautiful?
R13, I thought that Clooney uses Cindy Crawford to procure his beards.
If Leo's so unpopular with the kids why is his latest pos movie making hundreds of millions?
[quote]If Leo's so unpopular with the kids why is his latest pos movie making hundreds of millions?
Because his fangurls from the 90's have young kids now and are dragging them to see it.
Because every high schooler's favorite book that makes them seem intelligent is The Great Gatsby.
R16, he's a popular A-list actor. These stories of him hitting on young women are either planted or true. If true, what does it prove? That one or two young women aren't attracted to him. As an actor, he is well respected.
Honestly, maybe these models are floating these rejection stories to up their profile. I remember Trump's daughter in law tried it back in LD's prime. Sure he's older than these girls he hits on and his looks aren't what they used to be, but he is mega famous and rich. I don't buy that even the younger girls wouldn't be all over that. I do think he should grow up and go for more age appropriate partners.
" I don't buy that even the younger girls wouldn't be all over that."
Believe it or not, not every young model wants to go out with a much older man, very rich/famous or not. Also, young models can have plenty of younger rich/famous suitors.
R20 I disagree. We all know he doesn't stick with one girlfriend for more than a couple years (if that), so the younger ones probably figure it's not worth it.
[quote]I do think he should grow up and go for more age appropriate partners.
I think that IF he's indeed bearding, a woman over 30 that would go for that is a lot harder to find, unless she's gay too and it's mutual bearding. A model/actress who's over 30 and doesn't have a career already is not going to get one just because of being with him so a career boost is not going to happen the way it did for the young models he was with. A woman over 30 who doesn't have kids already, often wants them and they are obviously not going to get them from him so no time to waste. The only thing he can offer such women is money and maybe he's not offering enough of it?
The young women he hits on could definitely use the A list exposure and money but I guess many of them either think they can get it themselves or with someone younger.
His only options are
1) Bearding with a lesbian actress that needs the a list exposure.
2) Pay A LOT of money to a young/older woman to be his "girlfriend" for a while.
IF by any chance he's straight or at least bi, it's probably his issues, personality and social circle that puts them off.
Leo himself would not be procuring beards. That's the job of his team (manager, agent and publicist). The biggest closeted stars, like Leo, could even have "auditions" where the potential beards are carted out like mules at a wagon show and vetted to see if they're the perfect match for the closeted superstar.
The professional beards like Taylor Swift and Renee Zellweger are out of favor. DiCaprio and Clooney are wise to choose impressionable model girls who are desperate for a brush with fame.
Isn't Clooney still with Stacey Kiebler?
You don't see Bradley Cooper engaging in such behavior! :-)
Previously, when Leo dated Gisele Bunchen and Bar Raphaeli, they'd have "time out" periods then get back together for a while. Those on/ off relationships lasted maybe three years or so.
But he dated Erin Heatherton for not quite a year, and she was gone. Done. And they do not go near one another now. It was very obvious with her that at first she was flattered to be linked with him, and then she looked desperate to get away, and the " wash, rinse, repeat" cycle was a lot shorter with her.
R8. Thank you for the intro to Shirley Q Liquor!
R11 An older man can approach a much younger woman with respect, intelligence and manners BUT ageism is alive and well in the straight community .Years ago, a polished ,famous older man with money was seen as a "catch." Nowadays a woman just doesn't want security and money she wants youth and beauty as well.
I doubt that Leo is exclusively a cockgobbler.When he fucked Tico Torres' wife , I knew he at least liked pussy as well.No gay guy would go to those lengths to destroy a hetty marriage like that especially when it came to fucking the wife rather than the husband!
Rumor has it Leo fucked around with Miranda Kerr and he was "friendly" with Orlando Bloom, her husband but it didn't matter, R29.
She probably didn't want to share a bed with Tobey Maguire and Lukas Haas.
R30 Rumor has it that he didn't go near Tico Torres! He only fucked Eva and that was that. The guy is a modelizer just face it. Then again I never said he was completely straight either.....
You know what I can't get over? The fact that he's starring in this huge summer movie, a movie they spent hundreds of millions to make & market, and he crapped out on promoting his movie.
Baz Lurmann defended him. Of course, what else could Baz say. Leo barely did his duty in NYC, and once the Cannes open was over, he told them all to fuck off. Everyone else went to various countries to do their promotional duties, even Tobey Maguire, who no one gives a shit about, but not Leo.
He had his ass on the yacht, populated with random "fashion models" who very likely got paid for their time. I thought it was particularly shitty of Leo to not go to Australia, since that's where Baz is from, and it would have been nice if Leo would've supported his director.
Would it matter to the film's box office? I think it would, albeit marginally. Because if Leo would be willing to do even a few press junket interviews and some TV, it would boost the attention the film was given in these other countries.
[quote]An older man can approach a much younger woman with respect, intelligence and manners BUT ageism is alive and well in the straight community.
You mean unlike in the gay community?
[quote]Years ago, a polished ,famous older man with money was seen as a "catch." Nowadays a woman just doesn't want security and money she wants youth and beauty as well.
Unlike gays, of course.
For ages men could have their share of young women even if they were 30, 40 or 60. Women didn't have that privilege and it's still frowned upon even today.
Why should a young and beautiful woman settle for an old, wrinkled man with a pot belly and the beginning of health problems, when they can have any young, hot man?
You crack me up, Mr. Talk about projection.
The buzz around Cannes is that Leo is dating 20-year old German Victoria's Secret model, Toni Garrn. This is what, his fourth or fifth VS model? Does the guy simply go through the pages of their catalogues looking for dates?
Same old problem with outing Leo. His idea of suiting up is to put on a new pair of Keds slip-ons and maybe clean chinos. That just won't do at a major film festival. No matter how hard he tries he always looks like his idea of dressing up is to go up to the avenue to shop at CVS for all his supplies. And he ain't getting any younger.
R35, Toni looks really beautiful in that pic, and very "all-American."
"Nowadays a woman just doesn't want security and money she wants youth and beauty as well."
Women like to ride a hard young cock on a hard young body. Is that so wrong?
He's one of those rare cases when Italian and German doesn't mix well.
R38, Please do not generalize about what women like. I've turned down plenty of gorgeous, model-looking young men because they don't have enough to offer. A very good lover must possess sensitivity, intelligence, caring, etc.
It's not how old you are but WHO you are. Thanks to the jaggernauts in Hollywood for promoting youth and not the gifts that come with age. When you're old, you're your own library.
Boycott HOLLYWOOD standards. All they care about is money and Israel not America and it's citizens.
He's straight. Give it up, you pathetic losers.
R34 What are you preening on about? You must have a severe reading comprehension problem! Queenie McQueen the things you mentioned are a fait accompli in the gay community.That's why it wasn't mentioned! My point is that decades ago it was quiet accepted for a much younger women to marry an older man because of security,money social status and the like. Now that women are more independent economically speaking they want a man their own age with abs of steel etc so on.
R38 Not at all. If it's good for the goose its good for the gander.
R39 actually Leo is Italian,German,Polish and Russian.
R40 On a personal level, I understand your comment.However on a broader level, straight women are far more ageist than their forebears have been in the past. American women these days are far more reticent to get involved with a much older man. If even if she wanted an older man her parents would most probably be against it.
I'd never seen nor heard of this Cara woman, so I just googled her.
P I N G!
Is Leo a drinker? He looks a bit drinky.
Drinks, smokes like a chimney and God only knows what else. He'd still be gorgeous if he actually gave a shit.
R46, Clooney brags about drinking, used to smoke, and also indulged in "who knows what else." How many other stars regularly tempt fate regarding their looks? Or is that why there's such a thing as plastic surgery and unlimited funds?
He was never into working out much either, right?
R48, Do you mean that Leo never enjoyed working out (in non-sexual ways?)
Well R49, he's never had a gym body at all. And he's never played a role that required him to be ripped.
Straight or gay or bi, he just sounds boring.
The story at OP's link is so dumb. Everyone knows that Cara Delevingne is currently dating Rita Ora (they're both bi).
Was about to post that Cara is openly bisexual and possibly not into men at all but I see others got there first. Oh well, I'll just add support to the point.
He's boring and rancid. The performances are phony.
Maybe these supermodels are wising up to Leo's "bachelor" nonsense. They're superhot and young so they could get almost any man they wanted, I'm sure. Why bother with a bloated, aging, "playboy" when there are plenty of young, rich, good looking guys around, especially at Cannes.
I wonder if at some point, sexually speaking, he asks them to do things they'd rather not do.
I remember photographs of Erin Heatherton when she first started dating him, and she looked all shy and happy, and you could tell she was flattered to be with him.
But as the months passed, she looked stressed and tired and drawn, and you could tell she didn't want to be there. He has some very thuggish looking body guards too. I've seen celebrity bodyguards and Leo's look like real bad news.
Lukas Haas is repulsive to me. He has no career and he is constantly Leo's shadow.
R57, I wonder what "sexually speaking, he asks them to do things they'd rather not do," could refer to now?
Funny story...I was at a party in LA a couple of weeks ago, and everyone got really drunk. There were a few gorgeous straight girls in their very early 20s, and they were discussing the oldest guy that they had sex with. One girl confessed that she had sex with a rock musician recently, who was 37. She said that she made him do it doggie style, because his wrinkled face was so disgusting. She was also disturbed by his saggy balls. I am a 41 year old gay male, and found all of this quite amusing. There is no way that these young, attractive girls are attracted to middle aged men. They can have any hot young guy that they want. Some will tolerate the older guy for the cash, but I can't even imagine how much they must hate having sex with the older men.
Adam Levigne has the same dating habits, and he is straight. I do, for the record, believe that Leo is at least bi though.
I hope Leo takes that long break from acting after The Wolf of Wall St. comes out, so he can find a nice young man to settle down with.
WTF is with Lukas Haas always being with him?
I mean even if Leo is gay, he can't do better than this fugly elf?
[quote]Earlier in the weekend, Leo and his mom Irmelin went out for a night on the town together with a group of his pals in Venice, Italy.
"Yes, my mom IS coming with us! Are you saying you have a problem with that?"
Aww! You can see in the pics at R62's link that they share clothes!
Lukas was also a child actor. has some money sure not as much as Leo. they been friends since forever. Lukas IS gay. Leo i think is bi.
its hard to trust in hollywood and at his level you tend to get a bit paranoid.
Lukas also has a SAG pension. i do too. im in their age group and look better than both. mine will give me about $6k a month.
Whether he has a fondness for guys is debatable. That he has developed a fondness for carbohydrates is not. He's on the way to Elvis Syndrome.
So which of them owns the sweater?
Heavyset Datalounge frau sitting behind Leo at the French Open (R62). Please identify yourself, stalker girl.
Looks like it's Haas' sweater r70. Not that it matters to them.
Have never though Leo was handsome- certainly not ugly and he had a certain boyish appeal. In the right role he is a good actor as well- but not nearly as good for the roles Scorsese has put him in.
I do think it is very odd that he and Clooney, both very smart men, seem to date models in their early/miid 20s. Certainly adds fuel to the "they're gay" fire. One would think that these intelligent actors would go after someone closer to their own age and intelligence from time to time. Especially Clooney.
R73, Clooney chooses girls under 35 to be his pap escorts. He's been photographed over the years in intimate embraces with women much closer to his age and level of intelligence. As his personal assistant once told me, many in Hollywood know that they're budding romances can't handle the constant glare of the photogs. Not all girls need or want publicity.
BI about Leo, Bradley Cooper and a jealous Lukas Haas.
[quote]Blind Gossip] During a recent weekend, this multiple Oscar nominee and this one-time Oscar nominee spent some time together. They watched some sports game together, had a few meals together, and participated in a few leisure-time activities together. All very innocent, right?
Multiple has a jealous male friend. He is an actor who broke into the business more than 20 years ago as a minor. Now, we’re not saying that anyone here is gay… but Multiple has had a revolving door of girlfriends, One-Time has been in few suspiciously beardy relationships, and Male Friend spends an awful lot of time in gay bars in WeHo!
The Male Friend wasn’t at Multiple’s that weekend, but he quickly found out that Multiple was spending the weekend with another man. When he found out that it was One-Time, he went nuts! He sent One-Time a flurry of threatening texts and voice mails telling him that Multiple “is my man” and that he had better stay away from or that he would tell the press that One-Time is gay!
Uh oh! But it was an idle threat, and One-Time knew it. He knew that Male Friend wasn’t about to sink three successful careers with one call. But – just to make sure – he and Multiple did a photo op together that portrays them as a couple of regular, macho guys who were doing nothing more than hanging out, watching sports, drinking beer, and talking about girls. [/quote]
I thought the jealous friend in that BI was Tobey Maguire.
That blind was for sure Leo and Bradley. The photo op that came out around the same time looked obvious and a bit weird or 'off' to me. Lukas Haas looks like a jealous type to me so I can buy One-Time being him. While Bradley's relationship with Zoe S. was almost certainly the subject of another blind by Blind Gossip as being a set up.
That BI is obviously about those people and it doesn't sound wholly unrealistic, which is exactly why I assume it's made up. If a BI is obvious and expected and about stuff that is currently gossiped about, it's more likely that someone just used a small amount of creativity to write it, than that they'd have insider access to the exact content of messages Lukas Haas is sending to Bradley Cooper.
'One time' is Bradley Cooper.
Lukas is the jealous friend of 'Multiple' [Leo DiCaprio]
Here's Leo's latest. The article also mentions the tag along best male friend, Lukas. Do they have 3-somes?
I can't figure out if this guy is gay or not. It seems like he's gay, but if he is, then he must be DEEPLY closeted to go to great lengths to keep up the modelizer reputation. And it's so weird how Lukas tags along EVERYWHERE he goes. It's all just so strange.
In any case, Leo lost what little looks he had years ago, so I'm really not too concerned either way now.
Leo is another closet case, a younger George Clooney.
R82, George Clooney has been known to sleep with many, many different girls, and there is even photographic evidence online. Where's the pics of Leo almost getting a BJ from a lady, or intimately embracing?
Leo and Lukas have something very strange going on indeed. No straight man who "dates" women would have his best male friend with him at ALL times.
I'm surprised Leo's PR team hasn't put a stop to it.
To judge from those Daily Mail pictures at R80, I doubt he could pick out his "girlfriend" in a police lineup.
Leo has the face of a middle-aged character actor.
Much credit has been given to him for the success of "The Great Gatsby", at the expense of Baz Luhrmann, his director.
I think he's not going to come out of the closet, as long as it threatens his boxoffice with the public. Simply a career choice.
I know Leo, he is straight. Get over it.
R73 and R83 Paid for by the "George Clooney Is Not Gay" campaign. My god they're everywhere.
I'm sorry, that was meant to be R74 and R83.
R88, R89 I am not being paid for any of my posts, nor am I a member of a "George Clooney is Not Gay" campaign. I only report what I've clearly seen with my own eyes, like many other posters. I've also been told some very specific details by those who have worked very closely with the star for a long period of time. In addition I study body language in pics. Should I link the pics of Clooney in intimate situations with different girls?
Also I was the one that posted the DM link to Leo's new gal pal. I thought that was a very strange picture.
*cough* Bullshit. If not 'paid by' then obsessed with. He is not exclusively hetero and if you've actually 'talked' with people, which I doubt, then they don't know you very well and handed you the party line.
Leo is obviously not your concern.
Oh and, body language my dick. He doesn't even remotely look 'into' his beards. The women he is into you can't take on the red carpet.
Nice try, though.
Why do gays even want him? He's so repulsive.
Wonder is he'll try and hook up with Rafa Nadal while he is in France?
[quote]Why do gays even want him? He's so repulsive.
God knows I don't. If he wants to keep bearding, he can go right on ahead.
R91, I never said that George Clooney was exclusively hetero or that he was sleeping with his pap escorts/paid beards. I don't believe that he had a strictly platonic friendship with Juliana Margulies or JLo on sets. I only brought up Clooney in response to a previous poster who compared his actions with DiCaprio. They're totally different. Did you ever read Keri Russell's description of the night she and Clooney first slept together? How about with that soft porn actress who he got a small part in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind?
Sorry you don't believe that I've talked to Clooney insiders. What can I say? I know a lot more details than I've posted on DL.
Doesn't he think this is a little ... transparent?
Why not "date" a normal girl for a change?
R96, What I don't understand about Leo and George is that if they're supposedly "actors," then why can't they act like they're at all into their beards in public? I guess the Daily Fail and similar paps prints garbage for the gullible public to swallow in quantity. Of course many see only what they fantasize to be true.
DDL or Rickman would make a far better Rasputin than Leo. I think Leo should do lightweight buddy comedies rather than those requiring much darker, more complex characters.
Yet another Daily Mail article featuring Leo and his latest bimbo gf as the headline but scroll down and there are pictures and uh, comments on Leo's "male friends". I think they know - play along with the PR game but can't resist some hints.
Have to say that Leo and his friend Lucas do not look remotely like any gay couple I know or have known (I'm gay and nearly 60 so I have a bit of experience.)
They look like kind of typical straight guys. I still find it weird that Leo dates all these 20 something models.
Clooney pings a bit and looks much more gay than Leo. But really, I have no idea. At least both are very good on all the issues.
Sorry, but Leo and Lukas DO LOOK like a gay couple.
And they DON'T LOOK STRAIGHT at all.
A younger gay
R98 Yeah, the bearding shit it really getting stupid and pointless at this point. I don't care if he wants to stay in the closet, but cut the bearding shit out. Except for the fangurls, nobody is fooled.
Straight men that are 40 do not bring their "pals" to Europe with them or "pal around". Straight men are actually less social the older they get.
[quote]Straight men that are 40 do not bring their "pals" to Europe with them or "pal around". Straight men are actually less social the older they get.
And it's not just Europe, but EVERYWHERE Leo goes, Lukas is there too. He was with him in Asia and Australia too.
Exactly r103 - he just needs to come out, but then again, I don't think he'd have a career. Are there any blind items about him?
R104 The thing is he's probably one of the few people who could come out and it wouldn't affect him at all because someone who's been A-list for almost 2 decades isn't just suddenly not going to have a career anymore just because they're gay. His fanbase is too big.
Back to the adult men don't have best pals thing. I find that to be too weird, if it was true it would creep me out if he were straight. "Oh I'm 40 but I need my BFF with me at all times, he lives with me too!"
Yeah right...but if it were real, and he were straight it would be really creepy.
R101, Not all fangirls are that stupid; however
R104, Leo's popularity in foreign countries where
being gay may be a death sentence could be the reason his management team forbids honesty.
Link from earlier in the thread. The grey sweater worn by Leo in the top pix is worn by Lukas in the lower pix.
Again, heterosexual men or even gay male friends at 40 don't do this.
I don't think he's 'dating' her R115. I think she's actually a friend and the Daily Mail is reaching.
I think they're going to have him skirt-chasing in the press for a while befher they officially serb Jim up with another beard.
How come Leo allegedly dates "model" after model and yet none of them have ever gotten pregnant? Logically, if he's screwing these women and the guy's 40 so he has been at it for a while, if he is at it, one of these women would have managed to forget to take her pills so she can get a nice little earner in the form of a rugrat.
It's not like he ever "dates" anybody who actually has a career. These models have the shelf-life of fruit flies. You can't tell me one or a lot more of them wouldn't have got pregnant by accident.
I assume he has never fucked any of them. Why don't his fangirls wise up? They must have figured this out too.
Really, after all these years one of those models would have "accidentally" gotten pregnant by now, to get some very generous financial support from a wealthy star. How many hetero stars has this happened to? Hugh Grant and Ryan Phillippe just had "oops" babies within the last couple of years.
A man like Leo, with an estimated net worth of $400 million, would have at least one gold-digging babymomma by now.
[quote]He's one of those rare cases when Italian and German doesn't mix well.
That's true. Most of the time, Italian/German produces people who are insanely hott.
Apparently, Ryan Gosling future kid was conceived during ex-sex. McBongo's baby mama got him with repeated pregnancies. Let's face it, if these guys are fucking these women, these women will end up pregnant. If there aren't any little Leo Jrs. running around it's cause he has never stuck his cock up a woman.
I completely agree with all those who have said that if Leo WAS actually straight and fucking all these supermodels there would DEFINITELY be a baby by now! In fact, I'm in my 20's, did modeling, and if I ever got a crack at Leo my FIRST order of business would be to get pregnant!!
There is no question in my mind this man is gay. I was SO in love with him when Titanic came out. Leo was truly in his prime. But it doesn't surprise me in the least that he's gay. In fact a lot of people "know" he is.
And I see an absolutely SHOCKING amount of closeted gay men bearding these days. It's really rampant (esp. here in NYC). I'm continually horrified at how many of them just won't come out of the closet. Plus it's very frustrating for me as well, because I've unknowingly been a beard (or have been used as a beard) for periods of time, BELIEVING the good looking man in question was really straight. But of course, time told the tale, and the fact that they weren't touching me. But yes, DiCaprio, Clooney, and so many others are ALL doing it. Mark my words.
Oh, and in addition to this, if Ryan Serhant from Million Dollar Listing could still beard, when he is FLAMING GAY, then truly nothing is off the table.
Add Clooney to DiCaprio. Clooney also has weird nonentity gfs. The one he has now must have her eye on a big divorce settlement. But I bet there won't be any little Georges.
[quote]And I see an absolutely SHOCKING amount of closeted gay men bearding these days. It's really rampant (esp. here in NYC). I'm continually horrified at how many of them just won't come out of the closet.
Are you talking about people in the public eye or just "regular" everyday people?
And I agree with everyone else - LD has supposedly been with woman after woman the past 22 years and there hasn't been ONE accidental pregnancy yet? Give me a break.
Seriously, isn't he like old enough to be my father? Yuk!
And what 40 year old man hangs around with his childhood buddies all the time? Is he still with Lukas Haas?
He makes decadence look really boring.
"Women like to ride a hard young cock on a hard young body. Is that so wrong?"
I think you are confusing women with gay men. Hardly any guys today have "hard bodies" - most straight men are overweight and out-of-shape because they know women don't care that much what they look like.
Latest photos of tubby Leo. Ain't no hard body there. Just rolls and rolls of fat.
To R124, I'm talking about both. I know both people in the public eye who are bearding or pretending to be straight, in addition to lots of "regular" guys who are really gay but pretending to be straight.
Even though it's 2014, there are just so many men who don't want to come out of the closet. Yet these very men go around like DiCaprio... they pretend to date, but are never serious with anyone, never get a girl pregnant, etc. And the older they get, the more obvious it becomes. So many of them that I know though, don't go to the lengths Leo is. But that's mainly because Leo stands to lose so much more.
Look at how far Simon Cowell went with the models and now he's been outed in UK court.
"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 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.

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...
