On the gay dating scene, I have always wondered why there is so much focus on youth and beauty?
Gay Men sharing the same evolutionary traits with straight men are primarily visual when choosing their mates. Of course, there's no need to elaborate how straight men crave for big boobs, curvy shapes, clear skin, etc.
So put two men in a dating scene, then the emphasis for visual attraction doubles up.
It's just sad how these "visual factors" eclipses other important dating matters -- shared interests, sensible talk and other stuff that seems to be boring to so many young gay men I know.
