    Hello. Ive been on here for a few months now and i hate to admit it but i think ive been going about it the wrong way. I would like to take the time and start over.

    My name is Joe and I live in Grand Rapids, MI. Its a pretty conservative town consisting of Dutch people and basically a church on every street. Ive lived here my whole life. Im a senior at Grand Valley State University and have a year left.

    Previously I have tried the whole Comment on Forums and have tried reaching out to people... It just doesnt seem to work. Ive done the whole cam thing and thats instantly gratifying but its not leading to anything with substance. I would like to achieve some friends or something.

    I have always been a loner of sorts... I have a group of straight girls I hang out with but I need a time away sometimes. Every gay guy I have tried starting a friendship with seems to lead to one thing :/. I need some FRANDS! haha

    some of you will post on here saying im a sleezebag for using the forums as such but i am legit asking for some advice or for someone to reach out and have a decent conversation with.

    I am a great guy, funny, sarcastic, love to go out and do things. Being gay in michigan isn't easy haha help... or bitch or whatever you please.

    Thanks, Joe hope to make an acquaintance or two icon_smile.gif

    Hi Joe,

    I don't know why you should think you've been going about it the wrong way. Everyone is different, each person's way is right as long as it isn't intended to hurt anyone else. You say you've always been a loner of sorts. Sounds familiar, even though there are times one needs to get out.
    My recommendation is for you to continue being yourself in order to find people who like you as you are. Otherwise you might feel stuck with people you never cared to talk with!

    Buddy

    If I had a body like yours, I'd be banging every hot dude in the neighborhood just taking my morning strolls.
    Uh, what was the question?

    Too late now, but you should have been spending your weekends this past summer at the pool of the Dunes Resort. It's only about 45 minutes from you.

    If you're really just trying to make friends then feel free to email me. I think it's pretty brave of you to bear it all out in the open like this, forging a connection.

    My name is Nguyen. I left college for the Navy 5 yrs ago, traveled all around the world, but I've always wondered what life would be like had I stayed back. Now I live in Cali, about half an hr away from San Francisco, life is much much more liberal here.

    Our lives are a bit of polar opposites, so I would love to hear from you.

    Hi Joe. I'm sure you'll find some friends here soon.

    Maybe you should beef up your profile. If you list what interests you, people will find it easier to strike up a conversation with you. (I'm a total hypocrite for saying this because I haven't written my own profile yet.)

    I'm a better listener.... By better I mean selective.

    Plus, I'm a total message whore.

    Hello Joe... welcome to RJ

    So your town is full of Dutch people? Spreken ze daar ook Nederlands?
