    I've been on this site for a few years and met some awesome guys...both in person and online. And I just changed my status in my profile for the first time from "Single" to "Dating."

    I met a guy who I had been chatting with off and on for about a year on RealJock. We met on a recent trip I had out west for an Ironman race. I spent four days with him after my race. We followed that up with his visit to see me on the east coast which just ended yesterday. We spent an amazing week together.

    I know it can get discouraging when you read the forum threads and guys are bemoaning the perception that there are no good guys out there who want a committed relationship. I also know that I've heard others mention that they met their true love on RealJock. So, there is always good news and not so good news. My take on it is that there are some great guys and some not so great guys...and finding the right one just takes time.

    So this thread is to offer hope to those looking. Who has found their bf or partner on RealJock? Or broader yet, who has met a great guy from RJ that they have dated?

    I'm a sucker for love, and falling in it has to be the most amazing feeling in the world.
    I did meet someone here on RJ, whom I love and still care about very much. It didn't work out in the end, though going our separate ways was the best thing to do in our situation. Saying that, I encourage anyone (including you) to not shut down the idea of potentially finding someone amazing here on RJ, because it's happened to me, and it can happen to anyone as well.
    Go for it man, and don't get discouraged at all. I'm happy for ya.

    that makes two of us icon_razz.gif although as the OP said ''he heard others mention that they met their true love on RealJock'' which I've heard and read encouraging stories as well!! most of them turned out to have a happy ending.. so far icon_smile.gif I'd like to meet in person all of those great guys that I've met on RJ.. and all RJer's on here have the same chances to meet others who are awesome guys, don't lose hope!!

    Title alone sounds like a reality TV show of sorts. What network is it on?

    I'd totally watch it, btw.

    And yes, I have met the most amazing guys - both online and in person - on this site, although not my current beau.

    We met right here in Forums in '08. It began slowly, with a few notes exchanged about whatever topic we agreed on. Then we began talking by phone. We lived across the country from each other (Connecticut & Arizona) so we didn't actually meet for a long time. When we did finally meet, it was at the Phoenix airport. We'd sent a few pictures, so we knew what we each looked like. (At the airport before he arrived, I had fantasized about hiring some 380 pound guy to walk up and say, "Hi - I'm Gregg!" You can imagine how pissed you'd be to fly 2600 miles only to find out the guy lied about his weight and was 200 pounds fatter than he'd claimed to be!)

    Anyway we met, got along just fine, fell in love, made many more visits cross country, then moved together to California. Here we are. Now we're engaged. Who knew you could meet the love of your life in a Forum?
