    There are lots of guys here with anonymous profiles, who may or may not be out in real life. Have you ever been out in real life, but not online? If so why?

    In my case I deliberately chose to have a low tech life, and didn't feel any need to have a car, tv, cell phone, or be online at home, etc. About a year ago I realized that by not engaging to some degree with social media what had been an informed decision a decade was now uninformed (still car, tv, cell phone free!). I was surprised how coming out online was similar to coming out in real life: lots of anxiety. I found this site early on and prowled (Hello Brad! Your profiles still out there!) then checked out other gay sites. Eventually, I made the jump.

    So, guys, what's your story?

    The only sites I'm "on" are just this and facebook. I made my facebook account awhile ago, before I was even really aware of being gay so I didn't say so when creating my account. However, the majority of people on my friends list are people I actively talk with and already know so it seems silly to change it now.
