    I would like to know why some of you think you are coupled. A great majority of the people on this site are. Why do you think you're coupled? Is it location? Lifestyle? You just don't have time to be single? The right guy came along? You're confident? You think you're cute? Is it because you enjoy being coupled? If so will you be coupled forever? Or is it because the Prince Charming you have been waiting for all your life came and swept you off you feet?

    I am not asking you to look at your self in a negative way. I'm just wondering why it is so many "good looking" or "good guys" on this site are coupled?

    I'm coupled. I really enjoy having to worry about someone (my partner) but sometimes it would be nice to not have anyone around. I've learned to enjoy my couple hood and I think that matters quite a bit.

    I'm not sure if most of the guys here are coupled, but a lot are compared to other gay sites. I think there might be a lot here, because there is really not a place for guys who are coupled on other gay social sites.

    I'm coupled because almost 12 years ago the right guy finally came along.

    I was married for over 20 years and enjoyed the company of a partner. After dating several guys and not finding someone I was really connecting with, I decided to just enjoy being single then I met the guy that had such awesome qualities and we connected and the rest is history. I love having someone in my life.

    I "coupled up" several times. Obviously they didn't work out. I guess I'm not a "couples" kinda guy.

    why am I coupled? because my current boyfriend kept on bothering me until I finally got fed up with it and agreed to hang out with him. And I'm really glad I did.

    I'm coupled because I met a really loving man who wasn't afraid to be him self, who didn't play games, or thought he had the tools to be in a relationship but really had no clue in reality. I met him here 8 years ago.

    I got what I wanted, a husband, baby, and a dog. I didn't always think that I would get to be a father being that most gay men don't want kids. It was a huge bonus that we both wanted a little one...and a baby too! icon_wink.gif

    woodsmen saidI would like to know why some of you think you are coupled. A great majority of the people on this site are.

    FYI, most guys on RJ are single, not coupled - A search of profiles (limited to guys in the USA over 25) showed 76% classified themselves as single, and 24% classified themselves as dating, in some kind of relationship, or married - or roughly a ratio of 3:1 single to partnered.

    I'm part of a couple because I fell in love with this guy I was dating. Years later, we are still together, because we have grown together - we still like each other for what we found. Now there is also a wealth of shared experience.
