    We were having a restaurant dinner last night when I saw an RJer I know walk in, with his husband and another couple. I got up and approached their table because I wasn't sure they had recognized me, with my new full beard.

    RJers haven't talked here lately about meeting other members, and I don't think we've had many group get-togethers scheduled recently. It really is great to meet you guys in person, and if you haven't done it yourselves, I definitely recommend it.

    Funny, I was just looking at the RJ New York Meetup photo in my profile and it seems I'm the only member there who's still active here. Guess they've moved on. icon_sad.gif

    I also got fucked by a British muscle queen and a Turkish muscle daddy. It was marvelous.

    Fable wasn't apart of that tho. What were we talking about?

    Do you know how to do an RJ advanced member search? I plugged in Dover, NH, within a 50-mile radius, and no other criteria. Came up with a boatload of guys.

    We sometimes stay in Keene, where out best friends keep a second home. We can use the place anytime we want on our own, but we'll only go there when they're at home. Usually around Christmas, and a bit in the summer or fall, like the Pumpkin Festival.

    And when we go I broadcast it here, for anyone there who wants to meet us.

    No I have never tried that. I will have to see if I can figure it out. I'm not the most tech savvy for someone my age. That's pretty cool you guys come around here. Keene is very nice. Whenever we used to play them in football we rented a coach bus because it's actually a little over 2 hours from Dover haha.

    I agree! I've met RadRTT, PolaroidSwinger, ithnku8micr8on, Kiwi_Nomad, Genre, Redessence and Shawnathan and I loved it! I'd recommend meeting up as well! ^_^

    Well, yeah, I've driven the roads.

    Searching is simple. First, go to the RJ homepage. You can get there from virtually any page, by clicking on the REALJOCK logo on the upper left.

    In the left sidebar scroll down until you see SEARCH in a dark box. Click on that and fill in the blanks. You don't have to complete them all, merely additional filters, just do those you want. If you wanna refine your search further there's also Advanced Search, but for now this should be good.

    You can skip the age range unless that's vital to you. Click on the checkbox for "Within _______ miles of" and enter a mileage number. I tried 50 to see what I'd get. Enter something closer if you like.

    Work your way down through COUNTRY, REGION (US State), CITY (Dover), then finally click on SEARCH NOW. Don't worry about Member Name or any of that for now.

    No problem. Now of course realize that among them many may not be active here, and so won't be answering their RJ email, or at least unsolicited email. And may have partners/BFs, despite what their profiles say.

    But still, we really are everywhere. What has worked for guys who want to have a group get-together (including here in South Florida) is to announce it in the forums. And then email some of these guys near you. Most events take the form of a drinks & dinner gathering. Smaller groups have visited local attractions, too.

    I'm not quite sure what a "G" is. With other gay online groups I've used, a GT was short for a get-together.

    I met up with JackBoneTX not too long ago but that is cheating because we were friends before RJ.

    I don't think I ever met anybody from here, in any of my three stints of membership. I was supposed to meet GreenHopper but he seems to have vanished.

    LOL! Well, I'll have to see if I can have a new pic taken. But I prefer not to show my face online anymore, as I did previously here, because of pic poaching and misuse. My reluctance is NOT due to the fact that my beard had turned almost totally silver, since the last time I grew it. icon_redface.gif

    The RJer who met me at the restaurant can vouch for it, though, if he's monitoring this thread. He's occasionally active in the forums.

    pazzy saidsince you mentioned it, which member are you talking about?

    rigsby, the member who helped get me get involved with golf, and with whom I've played. Charming man. He and his husband have been together around 43 years, perhaps one of the longest on RJ, which rigsby himself has mentioned here before.

    That's awesome icon_biggrin.gif

    Unfortunately not many RJ users can be found in India let alone Mumbai, it'll be very nice to meet one (at least). Hopefully soon icon_smile.gif

    Yes, what's happened to this site? Forum discussions are lame. Most of the crowd is gone. Seems like trolls proliferate. I'm thinking of bailing too, but where else to go?

    Yeah, we've been to their lovely home, gone out to dinner with them, too. And rigsby had organized the South Florida get-together we had here.

    Another I would regularly see is paulflexes, though not in a while, fun guy. His flying sometimes takes him out of this area. But most of the RJers I've met are those who come down here to vacation, a world-famous destination. Guys like GAMRican, and NJDewd, to name just 2.

    So maybe that should be your approach in Mumbai, and India overall. Arrange to meet members when you travel, if you do, or those who are coming to Mumbai.

    I did that myself with Key West. Announced we were going there, and got in touch with a great RJer living down there. We continue to see him on many of our subsequent trips, go to lunch & dinner with him. Believe me, gurl, you can do it if you work it. icon_wink.gif

    RJ used to say when a member was last here - Now only says "more than a week ago" - which in many cases is many months or even years.

    No I have never tried that. .


    Did y'all ever do G?


    Thought it was eXstacy, but not 100% sure, so I looked it up on urban dictionary. Interesting how they used "G" in a sentence:

    "Johnny took a few sips of liquid g and was so high off of the effects he remained mashed off his face for hours."

    JM, was that you?

    Cool!
    Will give it a thought...but most of the people I see are looking for random hook-ups. Which is very much not friendly and approachable.
