    I'm here on realjock to meet cool guys, get fitness advice, chat, make some online friends, more than say meet a guy to hookup or date.

    I'm wondering if guys on here mind if you send them an email, to say hi and say that you like their profile, or if that is pestering them.

    I'm a good listener and not very demanding, think I make a good friend, so just wondering.

    Don't want to be a pest but don't want to just browse profiles, if you seem like a nice guy!

    Depends on who you email. Some guys are actually open to just making friends but they can be difficult to find. Other guys may think you're pestering them if they don't think you're hot.

    I suggest looking through the forums to see which guys you think would be open to just being friends.

    I'm new as well and was also wondering about that. I've been looking through the forums and posting quite a bit and have received a few e-mails that way. I'm also written to a couple of guys that are trying to achieve the same goals that I am. And that has worked out well for me so far. Always welcome to send me an e-mail icon_smile.gif

    If you're really hot, you can do absolutely anything you want and no one will criticize you.

    If you're not, you'd better be polite or certain members would see fit to ridicule you in public.

    But the main thing people do wrong is joining the site, posting a huge message about their life and their problems and expect others to care and help. It's the same as real life, you need to build a rapport before being someone's friend and earning their time.

    Having a filled out profile and participating in the forums for a while is the best start.

    It's a good thing to send an email to every person you find attractive on this site. It shows you are paying attention and are willing to take risks. Also,if they don't respond. Feel free to post a thread about them to gain their attention. It will make them feel wanted and special.

    Also, if you have ANY questions, such as; Are people attracted to Asian? Do buff guys like slim guys? And do I have HIV? Feel free to make threads about these subjects. There are NO dumb questions.


    Enjoy your Real Jock experience. Guys on RJ aren't like the rest of the gay community. We are all kind, compassionate, and sensible gentlemen here...

    ENJOY!!!
