I genuinely set up a profile on here to chat about fitness and gymming. I have found it to be less useful than I expected, but I'm still glad I found RJ. I have found a few guys who really enjoy chatting about fitness on here. We swap ideas and chat about gym in general. I've even skyped one or two guys to exchange ideas about fitness and gym techniques and diet and stuff. These are the guys that make me happy I joined. I also see some really hot guys and I find it motivating that I can achieve the same as them, really...
Sadly, for the most part, closeted guys from South Africa use this as a dating website for other closeted jocks and guys they hope won't be fem. Guys also send dumb sexually charged messages or unlock their pictures often despite my profile explicity stating I have no interest in it. Oh well... *blocks and moves on*
Beyond the fitness, though, it is nice to engage in some casual conversations about gay life as active, fit gay men rather than with other members of the gay community that have no interest in fitness. I find that most of my friends don't seem to understand a huge part of my life as I consider fitness and well-being a lifestyle. It's just better chatting to guys with the same lifestyle (healthier eating, conscious of alcohol consumption, gym etc
Ultimately, sticking it out and finding the diamonds in the rough that enjoy a cyberconversation about fitness is what makes RJ worth it for me
