    As the subject says "What brought you to Real Jock" how did you find it or come across it.

    For me personally every time i typed a question in Google about sexuality and other stuff it came up with forum posts.

    Honestly, it's been such a long time I don't remember. I started coming here in the summer of 2007, though I didn't really join the forums until that October. Almost seven years.

    Same reason as you. In fact we may have discussed this already. I finally joined when I couldn't get an answer to a specific question.

    I have plans on migrating after I finish my master's and every time I googled to look for opinions on people who have migrated, this forum ALWAYS came up. So after looking around at the forum topics I decided to join. I thought that I would be able to get some fitness advice on bulking up since it's hard for me and make a few fwens in the process icon_biggrin.gif.

    Really to talk and discuss things with "like minded" guys. I think the "What's on your mind right now" forum serves as a FB post for gay guys. I wouldn't talk about my obsession with Beyoncé or how I get upset about gay marriage even being an issue with acquaintances. Although I know a lot of my friends agree with equality, it just seems like I would be "flaunting" it if I posted about gay issues. I want to avoid becoming the token gay guy among family and friends. Now on RJ I can be as gay as I want and I don't give a crap.

    Also it's nice to know common concerns among the gay community that I wouldn't otherwise know about. I also have my favorite posters that offer some insight or a good laugh.

    I still remember Mr. Shark and I on a forum. I said something to the effect "Your milkshake brings all the boys to the yard"

    He responded: I think my milkshake is curdled by now.

    I couldn't stop laughing icon_lol.gif

    Also searched chat. I remember I was tiring of heteros in cyberspace.

    Was looking for a site where other gay athletes gathered because I had a lot of questions and insecurities at the time (still do, really).

    I don't remember exactly, but a Google search for meeting or chat with other gay men brought me here!

    I got curious about bathhouses, so I googled bathhouse forum or bathhouse experience (something along that line). Then an RJ forum was the first on the list. The guys on here are so hot so I joined. icon_redface.gif

    It was recommended in an article as one of the better gay sites for meeting guys instead of just hooking up for sex.

    A lot of us have answered this before, but I'll repeat:

    I did a Google search on "jock straps", looking for pics of guys wearing them. This site was a top hit. Plus I had heard about it from an RJ member on another gay site, to which we both belonged.

    Recognizing the name on the Google search I clicked on the link, and promptly joined. icon_biggrin.gif

    Yep, I'm afraid good old GOOGLE to the rescue back in 2007. At the time, RJ was somewhat new.
    Not all that many members back then.

    It is guy's like you that keep a few of us around.

    Yeah, Googled PX90 to get some real world information and dropped right into a flame war.
    Had no problem giving up my credit card info so I could join in the fun.

    I think that it started with a google search for how to come out to one's father.
