    Well, what was it?

    Hooking up? Dating? Friends? Exchanges of ideas?

    For me it was fitness tips.

    Forum participation primarily.

    I found this site by typing in a question or statement that related to a thread title and quickly became hooked when the forums popped up on google. I ended up reading the different and interesting threads for a while and the people on here seemed varied and cool, had sport/exercise in common and the personality types seemed much more three-dimensional, relatable and interesting to me compared to what I have found on other gay sites or from what I could glean from the gay scene. The expectation of sex was not the only underlying reason regular cool gay guys would interact and get to know each other here..... (might have to do with most guys being way to far and spread over the globe to realistically expect it ever to happen, but meh .... whatevs icon_lol.gif )

    The initial reason was to meet people and just be able to talk to other gay men similar to me. I was also thinking it would be a replacement for bodybuilding.com. Little did I know, if I want a lot of actual fitness advice, I still need to go over to that website.

    I saw an ad on some website (don't remember which one) that seemed to be too good to be true. A website for gay guys who actually like being guys; masculine and athletic. Guys who like dirt bikes, camping, working on cars, and maybe some heavy metal music. Guys like me.

    Not like 99% of gay guys I see in real life who like Madonna and Lady Gaga, acting like girls, shopping for Prada, and calling each other girlfriend.

    And after I was here a while, I found a lot of smart and interesting guys on the forums. icon_smile.gif

    I need help with working out. Still do. I only clicked on the forum area the other day after being a member for like two years. I am still finding my way with all y'all. I will be honest. It is a bit intimidating.

    to meet more gay people, be able to talk to other gay guys in a website that's not for hookups ...

    make friends .... and after i registered here, the forum was one of the main reasons i was like: Ok!, I'm staying here for good icon_smile.gif

    I just made mine about a week ago. I was looking to meet people and make friends in the gay community around my age. Maybe developing into more. It's hard meeting gays when your not into the whole bar scene.

    Meet fine ass men, put in my thoughts to each (or a few) forum posts, and have a f**king good time.
    nah just to reconnect with people I met on here back when I had an account before, plus give myself a second shot at being nice.

    a decent free site that did offer real information about fitness. I found more than I was looking for initially, and for that I'm happy icon_smile.gif

    Workout tips and the free t-shirt when I paid for the subscription! Then more working out, meeting some really cool people in the chatrooms. Then moved over to the forums and made some more cool connections and exchanged ideas. While the site has changed over the years as people have changed and moved on over the years, it has still remained what it was at the time I joined at it's core. As long as it stays that way, I will stay because of the motivation and the people.

    Fitness tips and just seeing who is out there. It's just nice to see and interact with the world from my finger tips. Other then that I have no expectations of anything else.
