    I'm just wondering, is RJ THE very BEST site for meeting people with fitness aspirations?

    In your own personal opinion, which site/app do you think is THE best for dating?

    In my opinion, this is pretty much the best page I've come across to. Yes there are plenty that seem cool and with a bunch of members, but this one is more fitness oriented and that's a definite asset.

    There's only so much you can say about fitness... it's not exactly an intellectual topic you guys, lol.

    I mean, you could attempt to make it a debate -- Do my legs going one in front of the other when I run symbolize the eternal cycle of birth and decay?

    owl_bundy saidthat's one of the reasons why this site has gone to shit though. people using this site for mostly the wrong reasons-validation purposes, followed with sex and dating. of course, all that shit is going to happen regardless but when you have hundreds of folks that think that's what real jock is only about, it throws the site off course.




    I don't quite follow. You make it seem as if I would have pointed it out as this site being only a dating one. Yet, I did mention it was fitness oriented.

    It is the best if you're gay or bisexual, obviously. You can discuss fitness and sports and flirt with a few guys once in a while. It's a perfect balance between fitness and sports, and dating and hookups.

    actually, i'm going by what you put though. you said that this site is good to meet with people for fitness aspirations and then underneath, you said which site/app do you use for dating? what exactly are you saying?

    and honestly, i don't think that most members of this site are really all that deep into fitness like that as in being healthy and etc. more into the aesthetic part of fitness for vanity/superficial purposes.



    Bro, I'm not denying in any way I consider this site a dating site. I'm saying it is, yet I also state that, in contrast with the rest of the dating sites, this one is the one most fitness oriented. I also said that's an asset. My only question was if this was the best one, but you're making such a big deal about it being "dating."

    And also, yes, people are superficial. But I really don't think you don't like looking good. What's the point on hating, anyway?

    After being on this site for many years..

    Bodybuilding.com is the better source for fitness resources.

    RJ is the better source for getting underwear suggestions.

    Dating? I dunno. This site is full of fake profiles and guys just looking for fap material. icon_lol.gif

    And you use it to tell the whole fucking world about your jack off experiences and how everyone else is "shitty" to you.
    You're just here to talk shit about people that have it better than you.
    Get over it.

    realJock is the only gay forum reaming in N America. A couple in a UK and a few odd sites. These options are not really dating sites. There are dating and or grinder sites, use them.



    A few people might remember private photos of realJock members getting lost stolen on the internet? Another naked man on the interweb is no big but seemed to bother some members here. low trust.


    some members have so many multiple accounts they could sustain a whole topic, the same person talking to it self for pages. Do you really know who you are talking to.


    fairly consistently the "who viewed me" images are of guys who never post here. Your chance to get connected to some one across the planet.

    It is, but definitely not all of it. I have received some really helpful advice from people on here.

    if that's directed to me, then fall back breh. don't have time to deal with some of you childish ass dudes in here and your sorry ass "i'm the better gay, i'm better than you" games that ya play on here. instead of acting like this is a contest where you're competing against other people for some prize that you can't see or for that matter get, humble yourself. you're not better or smarter than anybody simply because you don't curse or you lift weights. get over yourself.

    Yes, well why don't you try picking up a dictionary and learning some more socially acceptable words then. Prove that you're better or smarter than those of us that don't need to swear in every post or that don't need to complain about how mistreated we are or any other of the millions of complaints you lodge here.

    This is a wonderful site if you are (1) gay; (2) into fitness; (3) into sports; and (4) have thick skin.

    the thing about that is you know, i understand the thick skin thing BUT there's a difference between criticizing and attacking.


    I have a pretty thick skin. Hell my mom swore like a stevedore. But that was in casual talking. To TYPE swearing takes more effort. It strikes me as unnecessary. I can see using it for emphasis...I do on occasion.....but not in every DAMN post!

    I agree. The "Ignore His Posts" button helps some. Start with owl. He's crazy. And vulgar. And worst of all, unpleasant.

    Many of y'alls answers are very true, others are very funny.

    Owl_bundy

    Let me see if I get your point. You're basically complaining because people in here turned superficial and only care about looks and not what's inside. Correct? I get it, it would be nice to be able to have a deep, insightful conversation with people here instead of (like in my case) have people asking me for a face pic before even talking to me. But bro, have you noticed this is fitness oriented? People that's into fitness usually are into looks as well... It's quite a bit like... Common sense. I don't see the necessity of complaining about that.

    And yeah there is a bunch of fake people around here but this site at least has the verified feature that really gives it an edge above the rest of gay sites. At least that's what I think.

    One of the comments mentioned this site is perfect for bisexual people (like me) I agree. You get the best of both worlds because plenty of guys have similar interests as straight or bi people (not saying gay people doesnt) but I guess y'all get the point. So yeah many people is superficial and rude but that's one of the reasons why. And I think that should be considered as an advantage not a disadvantage.

    I think the main problem with RJ is that there is a Ingroup Elitism shit going on. It's like certain members will only comment on threads made by specific users, or dudes trying to justify their trollish friends just because they either think they're hot or because they're their besties. This doesn't even feel like a web forum. It feels more like a Facebook group.

    Could be worse you could be on Bodybuilding.com where they talk about "queers" and "homos" while they debate doing things with their hole for them on webcam:lol. I am sure that there are a variety of reasons people come here. It appears to be a health and fitness site for gay men which of course like anywhere gay men congregate they will be looking if they are single. Some just want to socialize with like-minded guys.

    to tell you the truth, i think bb.com and rj.com members share the same levels of insecurity. that makes sense though because most people that workout or care about their appearances are insecure about something about themselves.


    I used to visit bodybuilding.com just to view different exercises. I was rather disappointed with the forum posts using terms like "phaggots, "queers", and "homos". What is shocking is that these posts were regarding them considering doing some sort of gay-for-pay solo porn work.

    Edit:
    I do not believe in generalizations about fitness that they are doing it because of some sort of insecurity but I think some may be motivated by that. There are a varieties of motivations one could have regarding their fitness goals and they can change over time especially when they see results and reap the benefits.
