    I mean, it could have been "gay jocks"

    You could have Googled, "Hot fit gay guys"

    How did you FIND this site? icon_twisted.gif

    The truth about a guy I met online who used to be a member here, and was exposed as a fake.

    Stayed for atmosphere; I was looking for a forum like this and it seemed serendipitous.

    I think it was "gay fitness" or something like that. It was one of those fluke things that brought up RJ. I remember, I joined and was thrilled, but I didn't take part in any forums at first... it was sort of.. "well how does this fit in". It wasn't until the next year that I really started participating, reading and appreciating.. this site!

    I caught my bf at the time using RJ to attempt to cheat on me. (Turned out the guy he contacted via RJ was someone I knew through work that he didn't know I knew, ha!) After we split up, I stayed joined the site and have been on it since.

    Was that the guy you say you've just decided you actually hate?


    No. Two different people.

    The site we were on tried an experiment - completely zero moderation. It promptly fell completely to trolls, and became a wasteland of fuck yous without any conversations. and all topics were immediately flame-wars for no reason other than lulz.
    Ironically, the last time we were there to see what was going on (about 2 years ago) the TROLLS were starting topics begging for some admin intervention, lol.

    Truthfully - I think I was looking for hot guy images and saw a banner ad on something like Dude's Nude... that was actual 2 or 3 years ago.

    I opened a troll account and was a faceless troll - long before I actually posted pics and started posting. icon_razz.gif


    Then I actually became interested in fitness and decided to start interacting here. My perspective very quickly changed.

    I was looking for other gay guys that were into sports. Specifically college football. I have had season football tickets for many years now and would like to talk college football with other knowledgeable guys. I also enjoy baseball, basketball, Olympics, soccer and hockey.

    I'd met my last best bud in the early days of aol m4m chat rooms. After burying him, I thought lightning would strike twice so googled gay forum and wound up here. It's not the first time I've been wrong.

    Apparently their karma ran over their dogma.

    looking for workout not catered to women or *str8" men (heteronormativity in fitness sites no way!). So I remember looking up gay athletes for the Gay Games seen the interviews here. Stayed and did the workouts!

    I was looking for a forum where there was some helpful substance to the topics. A friend recommended it as a great way to make connections and I am glad he did. The gay community is surprisingly small out here in vegas and so its nice to be able to get in touch with a wider base of like-minded individuals. I think making some friends is really the main reason while picking up some tips on working out to keep from staying on the plateau that i was on.

    I joined and became verified because there were two different guys who set up fake profiles with my pictures.

    i joined because i was sick of the other sites out there. RJ has its drama, but its an inclusive drama...a drama for all...not just the select few who have somehow been graced by god as the official "hot guys". That, and I was sick of being contacted only by twinkies (and never being able to get the attention of anything other than)

    I googled 'Hottest Baseball Players' and found this site. It took me to a thread with photos of super hot players. I was hooked!
