    When I was at the SF Meet up I got an off hand comment and someone said,
    "You don't look like a RJer..."
    He's right and I honestly didn't mind him telling me that, he was just speaking the truth. Then I thought to myself, what is an RJer supposed to look like? Physically, not even a year ago I would've considered to be what someone could possibly think of as RJer but it's really hard to work out with a traveling lifestyle especially in 3rd world countries. I have been going to the gym at least 3 times a week since I got back but it would take me a while to get back at that level that I once was at.

    I have noticed that many people here do not look like RJer's physically as well and there is nothing wrong with that, people are beautiful in each of their own ways. Even though many do not look like what some people would consider what RJer should look like, many of these people provide valuable knowledge and participation to help this online community thrive.

    So my question is this, how do YOU define a RJer is it strictly based on looks, is it their participation in the community, is it their lifestyle? What is it? What does it mean to be a RealJocker to you and do you think that you fit into any of the categories that you described what a RJer should be???

    Wouldnt it be boring if we all looked the same? I guess as we dont have "jocks" here none of the Aussie guys look like the USA college ideal of a jock. I would have thought that just by being on this site and actively connecting with other guys that makes you an RJer.


    BTW OP you are incredibly handsomeicon_twisted.gif

    A real RJer in my mind is someone who participates in the community, lives, or is trying to live a healthy lifestyle, and likes/plays some sport. Most people can get away with just having a good body though icon_rolleyes.gif

    I think I fit into that role for the most part, but being in the closet, I can't really do the first. And I'm tryng for the second, but I don't really live by it all the time. And as much as I like some sports, I never have time to be really active in it.

    Well I suspect looking like an RJer means you either look fit, look healthy, or aren't dead (fitness, health, life). icon_wink.gif

    No zombo.

    An "RJer" means you either have great photo editing skills or have the money to hire a professional photographer to take perfect pictures of your "perfect" body.

    Don't be bothered by that comment. It takes time to "look like an RJ'er", and even more effort to maintain it... If you're allowing yourself the pressure to look a certain way in.
