    Step 1: Now that I'm out, I'm gonna boldly join me some gay message boards.
    Step 2: Woah, this RJ actually seems to have guys like me on it.
    Step 3: I'm gonna play this cool. Trade workout advice. Make new friends.
    Step 4: Wow that dude's hot. Oh wait, that guy is too. Maybe I'll just message a couple people.
    Step 5: Hm. Some harmless flirting is fine right?
    Step 6: MUST LOOK AT EVERY PROFILE AND COMPLETE HOTLIST.

    Will I recover my cool or am I just hopeless at this point?

    I don't think most guys here have an agenda.

    I'm here mainly for the the forums. If I meet cool guys along the way, then I'm fine with that too.

    Step 7: Try and befriend said hot people.
    Step 8: Still waiting for the reply.
    Step 9: Finally one replied! And he isn't saying nice things.
    Step 10: Jaded.

    Step 11: Participate in the forums a lot.

    Step 12: Develop a set of "favorite" forum guys you befriend outside RJ, online or off.

    Step 13: Realize that after about 3 months, all the conversations are repeats, and that they all are beginning to annoy you.

    Step 14: You're spending way too much time on RJ, your hotlist is up to 1000, your post count is in the high hundreds, but you start to realize all your posts are becoming more and more cranky.

    Step 15: Decide that making a half-dozen RJ friends is pretty much a high point, and that you should cut your losses. Then hide/delete your profile (with optional dramatic gesture of "sick of this place and never coming back" post).

    Step 16: Cool off for a few months.

    Step 17: Reactivate your profile, but now with a much more ironic and distant approach.



    OK, yes. I'm projecting.

    LOL.<3

    I'm alternating between Step 17 and Step 13. And I keep skipping Step 15 and 16.

    And thankee Brett. Although I contend that assertion, unless you mean hot as in flamable. In which case, yes, I like flame wars. icon_twisted.gif

    Now dat's a-funny! Some of the guys here we know followed different steps...

    Step 13: Realize that after about 3 months, all the conversations are repeats, and that they all are beginning to annoy you, but then you quickly remember when you were new, and decide to be more like the Cheshire Cat than the Red Queen.

    Step 14: You're spending way too much time on RJ, your hotlist is up to 1000, your post count is in the high hundreds, and by not getting too cranky, your buddy list is growing with guys that are thinking, "Hey this Meethead is pretty cool!" and you join the mutual admiration society.

    Step 15: Decide that making a half-dozen RJ friends is pretty much a high point, and that you should cut your losses. Then hide/delete your profile (with optional dramatic gesture of "sick of this place and never coming back" post). Then you quickly change your mind as you can't just walk away from all the fine guys, understanding that one nasty poster is NOT greater than 10 great ones.

    Step 16: back in the saddle! Yee-haw!

    Step 17: reactivate your profile, carefully wary of your own reactions to flaming posts; typing twice, posting once, because you've learned from the more reactionary posters how not to post, lol!

    Step18: buddy list grows - some of them are HOT!! Lo and behold, one or two put you on their hot-list...then.......

    Step 12.5 Go head to head with a few people...Realize there are a handful of idiots with irrational ideas and beliefs, that will never come round no matter how much you try and beat logical thought into them and give up...occasionally being tempted to jump back in, making that mistake once or twice and then resolving to resist

    step 15 should be "block a number of people" and then the rest is fine.

    Oh, yeah, that reminds me. One of these steps should be something about declaring your religious beliefs... either the complete lack of, or the ironic embracing of conservative Biblical principles that condemn homosexuality.
