    Hi everyone. I just wanted to welcome myself to these forums. My name is Tim. I never would of had the courage to do this a year ago let alone create an actual profile. But today I updated my profile. I'm sick of being afraid. Let it be known I want to love a guy.

    I feel like myself for the the first time in 24 years.

    This is exciting. I ask myself, why now? And my answer to that question is before it's too late. I just want to be happy. For the first time in my life I'm willing to be happy to just be myself and that feeling is tremendous!!!!!

    So I just want to wholeheartedly say hi, nice to meet everyone. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you and begin this new journey. Freedom, it feels exhilarating. 24 years in the making.

    I would welcome you here, but you already welcomed yourself.

    So instead, I'll just say "congrats on deciding to be yourself!" icon_biggrin.gif

    Congrats, and welcome to a new world with the same racism, bigotry, shallowness, and rejection but in a much smaller population.

    Welcome! Here is a great place if you want to feel like yourself, because no one here will judge you about being gay or any of that! Trust me, after being here for a few months you'll definitely feel a lot better about yourself that in real life, you had to hide. Can't wait to see you post more man! icon_biggrin.gif

    Thanks everyone for your support!! I actually sent a friend a message on FB tonight that I very much trust and told him I was gay. He couldn't of been any sweeter. I haven't told a soul so it's a relief that friends will still be friends.

    Congrats!

    But the real question is...

    would you rather date, fuck, or pass on the guy above you?
