    Hey guys I was just wondering if anyone had any advice. I used to live here a while back and I just have straight friends in the area. I never thought I'd be making one of these threads but I guess I just want some advice on how to get started in the scene over here. I was in Berlin this summer and it just happened really easily, I don't even know how but I made a ton of friends really fast and was clubbing every night basically lol.

    But over here I donno, I have all the apps open to meet people. But its sort of awkward because everyone's pretty much on them to date/hook up. But I don't want to be that guy that goes to a club alone lol. :-/ Anyway if anyone has any tips let me know.

    I live here (and actually lived for years in Berlin). But the best guy for the Miami area is paulflexes. E-mail him directly. All I really know well is Fort Lauderdale & Wilton Manors, a difficult drive 30 miles to the north. And Key West, but that's when you have some time free. Yeah, contact Paul, he'll set you up.

    About 30-35 miles, depends on where you are. But the drive up I-95 is a bitch.

    If you do try to come up here let me know, I'll give you some guidance. But you won't want to meet us, we're like your grandfathers, a total downer for someone who's 22.

    paulflexes is your better point of contact. He knows the things that might interest you much better than us.

    Hey thanks for the advice man. I've heard of Twist before. Though I've heard people saying thats more of a hooky uppy type thing. Is it the kind of place you should go alone to meet people and be social or do you suggest I find someone to come with?

    You are doing a very good job of that yourself, southbeach.

    Yep, we have quite a bit of drama here. Sock puppets abound, and Caslon is always screaming for attention, our own RJ prima donna. If you don't bow to him he gets quite upset.

    In any case, do shoot me an email if you want some practical info. Disregard these other pretenders here who don't live within a thousand miles of Miami.

    As I said, Wilton Manors is kinda far for you, but it's Gay Central at the moment. I'll send you a link for Paul (though I didn't clear this with him, hope he doesn't get mad at me), because he knows the gay scene where you are better than I do. I know it a bit, but he's the expert, as I posted earlier above, and you want the best.

    If you do ever consider taking the long drive up to Wilton Manors please email me. We know all the club owners, can arrange a nice reception. Can't guarantee you'll meet guys, that's up to you. But you won't be a stranger. icon_biggrin.gif

    Please disregard what Art says. His faux celebrity status he has given himself is laughable. I would have more fun meeting the manager at Arby's than any of his friends.

    And it appears Art has stuck his stubby diabetic foot in his mouth, once again. In a thread about the city of Miami, he claimed to report it as, in his exact words, " grubby, dirty, run-down residential districts, heavy traffic, crime, and nothing nice in any way." yet all of a sudden he doesn't know anything about Miami. Which is it Art? And if Miami is such a hell hole, why aren't you doing your best to prevent this young man from destroying his future by moving to this dump????

    If there is anyone here that is the Qween of starting flame wars, it is you Art.

    I just moved back to Fort Lauderdale from Miami a couple of weeks ago. I only lived there for about two months before moving back to Fort Lauderdale. I honestly didn't like it. The traffic was horrendous and the people were so rude, but that was just my experience. I find the people in Fort Lauderdale are a lot nicer and a lot more laid back, not so edgy and in your face.

    Miami Beach/South Beach was really nice, though. I like the party vibe and the outdoors activity that the beach allows you. I worked in South Beach for awhile, and I had a blast walking across Ocean Drive and watching all of the muscle jocks working out on the beach and rollerblading the sidewalks. Eye candy everywhere.

    As for Miami, itself, I lived in Coconut Grove (more of South Miami), but I traveled throughout Miami-Dade a lot, and it was crazy! I've never been as scared driving in a city as I was there. The drivers are horrible and downright rude! You'll have to get used to the way they drive down here.

    I noticed that a lot more people approached me and talked to me when I was walking up and down the streets, something that I never encounter here in Fort Lauderdale, unless I'm walking down Wilton Drive. It shouldn't be that hard to find people to talk to there, especially if you are an outgoing person, yourself.

    laughing-smiley-male-smiley-laugh-smiley

    What a nasty fucking bitter wanna be-

    Bob Deco--don't be badmouthing Caslon. I have copied text of a deleted post that shows everyone how nasty you are and can be-- and that's not a threat--just a reminder that you are not who you pretend to be--and there are numerous people who will vouch for this

    ---You are the prima donna self appointed A-lister here on RJ--
    Caslon is twice the gay man you could only hope to be--
    Feck off and go raise your POST COUNT again by posting for the 10th time about how you cut your own hair-- You are 63 years old and it's all about whose post count is bigger? Sad

    Twist is my favorite bar(s) in the entire US (7 bars under one roof).

    Yeah it's very hooky uppy (which is why I like it), but I've also made some good friends there. In fact, Twist is where I met the guy I've been dating over a year...which started as a hookup in the parking garage. icon_lol.gif

    They've always got some kind of stage setup on Sobe. I used to take pictures of them. Now I just ignore them and keep on flying. icon_lol.gif

    BTW, today I was pulling the "Magic City Casino" banner. Don't even try to tell me you didn't see it. I was out there 3 hours flying circles around Sobe with it. icon_lol.gif

    And this is the part where you forget that I wouldn't want a thing to do with the nelly bottoms who can't speak English that were sitting on your lap and I go home with a hot tourist top (preferably from one of those cold eastern European countries) who can't speak english either...
