    First I wanna say 98% of the guys here welcomed me. 20% hit on me but, when I say thanx not interested, only 2% persisted...might just be that same missing 2% - lol!
    But some (few) have questioned my intentions...

    Anyway I am on many other forums out there. Rather well known on bodybuilding.com as scoobymuscle. But I had one just too many encounter there with some really rude guys. Might be too much steroids or something but it feels sometimes like I've been mobbed by the mafia or the like.

    So started looking for some other forums to interact with like-minded guys (bodybuilding, healthy living, fitness, wrestling, surfing, martial arts, etc.).

    But why would a straight guy, happily married for 25 years look at this forum...some has ask?

    The thing is...when I look at people I don't put labels on them. I don't see black or white, gay or straight, Christian or atheist, rich or poor, I see human beings. In this case guys with very much the same passions as me.

    I am a loner with few friends and the online activity and interaction is pretty much where I get my friendship and male interaction from.

    So those of you that are wondering...I have a WELL SORTED sexuality..I know what I am, what I want to be and where I wanna go to. But like all who are on these forums I desire friendship and male interaction.

    Some are saying, but how can you flash your pics in white briefs all over the site...well, that is who I am...fitness and healthy living is my passion. That is what I do. All my photos is pretty much to this purpose.

    Died nearly 9 years ago with life expectancy of 2 years. Beat that, but much hardship as a result. That has shaped me and brought me to where I am today. One of my main objectives is to assist and help guys to achieve healthier living and to help guys who aspire to reach a muscled physique and thus my blog
    http://gertlouw.wordpress.com/my-transformation-program/
    Sort off my purpose in life now...

    I got no hidden agendas. What u see it what I am.

    I am just a white, straight, Afrikaans speaking, Christian guy, born and bread in apartheid South Africa inspired by people such as Nelson Mandela and ultimately, Christ.

    So stone me or welcome me...

    This is a golden opportunity for gay guys to live up to their tolerance and acceptance of other types of guys on this web site. We gays are always screaming oppression and homophobia at the drop of a dime. It is time for us to practice what we preach.

    Oh don't go by me, I'm perpetually butthurt. Sometimes I try clicking poasters off ignore and read some threads but I wind up with agita every time, even when that shit isn't directed at me, just at each other.

    So I say fuck it, revive the gardening thread and post pretty pictures.

    Here's one I was about to post there. It's a peach blossom from my garden.

    Perdy, idn't it.

    Welcome! I'm still drinking my first cup of coffee here in California so not sure what more to say. The fact you're straight doesn't bother me. I'm not sure you're going to find what you're looking for here, though. Rudeness and worse is a way of life for some people.

    There is humor here, too, though, and occasionally something heart-felt. As for fitness stuff, that's rather a small fraction of what goes on here. Depends what sub-forums you pay attention to, I suppose. The thing to keep in mind, I guess, is that some members have been here a very long time and know one another (via their online personas at least) pretty well. Others of us are newer members but have managed to carve a niche for ourselves one way or another. A lot of crazy shit happens and much of it may not make any sense to a straight man. Just don't know.

    In any case, the forum can be whatever you want to make of it pretty much. But flame retardant, that is, the need to not take things too personally, is often needed.

    Beyond that, you are hot and don't seem to be homophobic so, why the hell not? icon_razz.gif

    Well, this is a fitness site after all so, I don't see why would it matter. Just don't get to involve in the drama. icon_wink.gif

    Hello GuyFromTown *waves*

    lol, you're like a fair number of straight friends we have
    (in your outlook towards gays etc), so reading your topic was pretty nice.

    This site has its share of trolls and really great guys.

    Cheers!

    20% of the guys on here hit on you? Seeing as there are 1400 guys online now that means 280 guys have already hit on you.

    It's a forum for gay guys into fitness.

    Since we have many
    gay members not into fitness,
    it's only fair to have
    non gay members into fitness


    Welcome.

    PS : I would only find weird to have straight member not into fitness.

    Nah, I'm not like you or Jmusmc. Tiny skinny bodies with huge heads. Are you both related or space aliens? That huge head gotta be heavy. icon_wink.gif
