    All right, so, to make a long story short, I've been posting here since august 2010, it's been two years now, around 2600+ messages and great exchanges with most of you.

    I remember back then, I had just moved to my new appartment in Montreal and it was a little bit the official beginning of my "gay life", hence I needed some support and gay entourage to rely on. RJ was there icon_smile.gif

    As much as I was becoming more and more at ease with myself, as a person, more confident and close to my principles, as much as my mind evolved, my body did so and, of course, I made a lot of progress for which I found a lot of inspiration on here. I think of guys like Larkin, Spiritreaver and many other members of the Former Fat Kid Club who brought a very big change to their respective lives, as well as to their observers' lives.

    I also met a lot of great people on here, and some in real life. Contrarily to some people who'd use RJ to hook up, I speak a lot about this website with my friends and parents. It's not a shame, it's actually a pride to be part of this community. I wanna thank more specifically Greenhopper, Doug and Bill, Dekiruman, Tony (aka TheGuyNextDoor), the looovely members of my adorable Secret Club (boys, you know who you are icon_razz.gif), and I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot of you.

    A special shoutout to my ex-husband, TrevorMark. Juzt thank you for playing the game icon_redface.gif

    I'd like to mention how I sometimes think of all these very nice person that posts a lot on these forums and that I didn't get to know better yet. I wish I could put you on that first list and will try to work on that in the following ;)

    Aaaand to all the marvelous people that voted me as a MOTD, well I honestly never really cared or cried over it, but I have to say it is very flattering when it actually happens (even 2 years later), and I really, rrrrrreaally appreciate it icon_smile.gif

    Long live RJ !

    WOW! You sound like such a swell guy! icon_biggrin.gif

    I feel the same way. I'm not out in real life yet so this site has really helped me and I've met such wonderfully, supportive kind folks here, Deki is definitely one of them. icon_wink.gif

    I'm not sure how I stumbled on to RJ almost 1 month ago, but I'm glad I gave it a shot. I haven't used any other sites besides this and so far this is leaving a very good impression. It's shown me a side to the gay world that most people don't even know exists.

    I think it's nice b/c it offers something for everyone. Hook-ups, training advice, friendship, online chat, dating site, etc.!

    Oh and you have an ex-husband? You are so lucky that you live in a liberal, open-minded country that allows you to get married and not just some civil union or whatever they want to call it. Never take that for granted! Hopefully, we'll be able to catch up to Canada in my lifetime. Probably not in regards to healthcare and other aspects but perhaps for equal marriage rights...

    Congrats on MOTD, sound like it couldn't have gone to a better man.

    Although a post count of only 2600 is kind of embarrassing. icon_biggrin.gif

    Thanks for the kind posts everyone ! I honestly think most of your deserve the next MOTD hehe ;)

    GAMRican, thanks a lot, although I'm not sure DP is a very good diminutive for my name. It could confuse some people... icon_redface.gif haha

    ACTIVE_ATHLETE, good luck with everything that's coming up. Coming out is surely not easy, but god damnit it feels so great ! Hope this website will continue to offer you what you need and looking for. Oooh, and my "wedding" wasn't a real one, it was just an online joke with TrevorMark, another member of the website. We played the game for maybe a year or so, but he ditched me lately (I know, right ? what a douche! haha) As for real life wedding, I'm still waiting for THE one, and I consider myself waaay too young to start even thinking about that now. One day, though... ;)

    WhyWhySee - Yeaaah, I remember that. I think I've been nominated like 3 times all in all, and I guess this one I got lucky ! icon_smile.gif Thanks again !

    Claystation : Yes. But show me you butt first.

    DudeInNova - Aaaah, I know right ? My bad. I should stop narrowing it down to significant stuff and start trolling a little more, I guess :p

    Aaaand again thanks to everyone, it's been a pleasure to read you and looking forward more exchanges in other threads ;)

    Nnnnow, gotta deal with that mailbox. Oh boy.
