Wow! Lots of responses! And also lots of confusion about my first post. Please realize that I speak expecting people to take my words at face value, there's no "between the lines" stuff.
First of all, despite it saying "Guys I'm looking to meet" on every profile, I never thought of this as a dating site, nor do I look for local or online fuckbuddies. FYI, I'm celibate and single by choice (8 years and going strowng!), so I'm not here to find anything but friends.
I have tried some other gay forums and ended up leaving for various reasons, so I'm on the market for a community to join. This one's got the gay members *check*, hotties *check*, and a different membership, a change that might make me stay longer than other sites. I don't know what else there is on this site besides forums and a chat window that popped up last night.
paulflexes, so you're saying that effeminate personal trainers and exercising fatties are not allowed here? Is that in the terms somewhere? You might want to read my original post again, because nowhere in it did I say I was femme or fat. In fact, I said I was skinny. You must not be eating well enough for your eyes to miss that. Try eating more carrots
! Get some beta carotene in ya!
Oh, and when I made the topic, I wasn't asking you guys if I was allowed here, if I was good enough to be here, or taking a vote to decide for me. I wanted to know what reception I could expect to find here, and I wanted to consider how you all feel. To see if it was something that was a problem and RJ was making an effort to keep the site "pure"
I'm no stranger to forums, I expect there to be trolls and people with perpetual sand in their online vagina being critical at the drop of a hat. What I didn't expect was for my consideration of you all to be thought of as a bad thing. I live in an apartment building full of inconsiderate, rude, and disrespectful people, and I am totally the opposite. And FUCK YEAH I'm proud of that! From my end, it was as asking "is someone sitting here?" and getting "you need me to tell you where the fuck to sit??" in response. nutso.
Caslon: "you might see the errors of your wicked ways...starting with your unhealthy eating!" Just try to make me!
Musclecomebac... I won't bother to fill out my profile if I won't be staying, that would be silly. If I do stay, I'd fill the shit out of it and be verified. I'm usually the one complaining about other people never putting much in their profiles.
Any other forum, I would cannonball-in, but since there's a theme here that I'm not a part of, I am restraining myself. When I get into a forum, I get very involved, opinionated but not insulting, sometimes a diffuser, funnier than I am in person, and post with quality over quantity in mind.
Strangely, Sporty_g's response was my favourite. Kinda made me feel at ease. Have one of my cookies err.. I mean multivitamins.
Thanks everyone for taking the time to respond whether friendly or intentionally misunderstanding, as it gives insight into how the community does.
