    Yo, for real though, I needed to free myself from Grind'r, Jack'd and all that other stuff. With me living in the Bay close to San Fran, these dudes out here are completely weird for real, for real. Yes, I'm on RealJock.com as of now but my reasons are to connect with people that can carry a decent conversation, to have good laughs and workout tips. Plus, a friend of mine introduced me to this website and I like it so far. I know things are what you make it to be but I can't deal with the apps shit anymore LOL. Do any of you guys feel the same way? Do you find Grind'r and/or Jack'd to be overrated? Let me know icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

    I met my first boyfriend on online dating and met someone really awesome from the same site a week or two ago, but still, these hookup and dating apps really make me feel like shit. Most people are just very strange, blunt, and don't care to get to know you much.

    I feel a lot more positivity by doing my own thing and coming to this site. It's really an awesome place to be despite other people telling you otherwise. I've also met some great friends by joining gay groups. I even joined a gay 'bear' group and I'm the only guy who is 20 and NOT a bearish type. Most are in their 40's and up. They're some of the most nice and accepting people and it's cool to have older friends. On top of that my local gay bar has dudes my age who just like chilling and not really cruisy at all :-)

    Yeah those places are overrated but if they serve your purposes, then maybe not. As for RJ, it can be a great place for long distant friend connections, fitness information, and just seeing many beautiful looking men across the world. You'll find a variety of topics and personalities here I'll give yah that much! Best wishes to you finding someone who will like to get to know you and accept you for who you are here. Hopefully there are some nice open minded guys in San Fan that you can connect with through the site. I can't say the same for southern California...yet. The RJ topic forums are a stimulating social place to express your point of view while also getting a feel of how many gay men think. Welcome to RJ. Cheers!

    I've never used a hookup app so I have no idea what you're going on about.

    Yeah, which one?

    I met my fella on OutintheUK (now OutEverywhere). Been together 8 years. I was living in a small town outside of London. Not a lot going on in terms of gay bars/activity groups. The net was my only resource, really. Also, I hate gay bars/activity groups.

    I have a year and a half under my belt with a guy who once sold me pants... Yeah, maybe I was in his store and bending to look at something on a low shelf and my own pants split from pocket to knee, but that's beside the point...

    To me, dating apps are more about the hook up. What you do with it from there is all on you... (extreme rural areas are different of course)

    Try to get away man. Get out and get away from the socially awkward!

    I tried deleting grindr off my phone, but I got bored very quickly without it.

    Alpha13 saidHardly overrated. They are what you make of them as you say . Bottom
    Line is don't expect social skills on the Internet. "Social sites" are for peeps that are developing social
    skills no dudes that can carry their weight n the real world . icon_biggrin.gif


    Alpha lays down tha truth!


    Grindr and jackd is for entertainment purposes.If your gonna let a a phone app make you feel inadequate you have bigger issues you need to address. Take a good look at what is causing your pain and then remove to it is the only way to cure it! You did a good thing to delete it. I still keep jackd. It's not as cruisy as grindr.I'm not relying on it to keep my dance card full. I mostly meet guys either at the gym or at the club.

    Speaking of I did meet a young Asian babe on Jackd. I didn't expect him to be relationship material. Yet we did have fun.

    Focus on your personal value. When that is up the stud will be more than happy to be with you. Until then your life will be jam packed with hit it and quit its.

    One thing for sure is that these apps can be quite addictive. I try to stay away as much as possible from them and it's easier when you don't live in an area where the nearest population don't change everyday. I think I am able to just shut these apps down when I want and just go on with my daily life. At the starting, I used to spend quite a bit of time there but now once or twice a day I open them and then sign off after some time.
