    would you say hi?

    (based on real life circumstances)


    I was at a club (or two) tonight, investigating what made people want to NOT go to certain areas of clubs (specifically downstairs at Touche and Jackhammer in chicago). I didn't get into anything raunchy, despite the random porn's on the tv's.... but, I could have sworn I saw a face or two who looked familiar like some of the RJ guys.... and I wonder if they would say Hi if they recognized me....

    So the question lies: Would you say HI if you recognized a fellow RJ'er somewhere? (regardless of where)

    I've been tapped on the shoulder once or twice. But that's only because I was making a spectacle of myself. In a dark club, you aren't as easy to spot as you might think and the "jock" look is far more prevalent than you might think. I'm sure what happened isn't what you think happened.

    Sure. Especially, if they were surrounded by family or colleagues and had a girl hanging off one arm.

    Yeah - it would depend on the circumstances and the guy. You could say hi to me in any circumstances though.

    Well, I doubt I would meet an RJ member, but I have met members from other websites and I usually say Hi icon_smile.gif Expecially if we have exchanged personal messages...

    I wouldn't walk up to someone and say hi just because I recognized him from here. It would have to be someone I liked.

    I don't recognize people, I get recognized. icon_twisted.gif

    Having made that stupid comment, it is usually true. I'm usually not good at recognizing guys from RJ in real life. I have two friends on RJ, both very handsome, muscular, nice....and they stand out in a crowd. I already knew them before I knew they were on RJ.

    Other than that, I love it when guys come up to me and say "I know you on RJ" or something. None of them single of course....but what you gonna do...

    Absolutely I would say hello to someone from here if I recognized them! I would do that to anyone I recognize. Also, I would hope that if someone recognized me, that they would come up to me too and say hello!

    I'm under the opinion that one of life's greatest collections is friends. He who leaves this life with the most friends WINS! icon_lol.gif

    If this comes off as sounding douchey at all...it's not meant that way! People come up to me all the time...and kinda gets annoying! While most people feel it's false modesty on my part, I personally don't believe that I'm one of those people that just sticks out in a crowd. With that said, people come up to me, not just from this site, but a few others and try to talk to me like I'm their best friend, and it doesn't matter where I am. As for me approaching someone I recognized, if I've talked to that person before, and it seems like the situation that would be appropriate for it I probably would. Other than that, I'm actually kinda shy. icon_eek.gif

    I don't think I'd recognize someone from RJ in real life, but I'm actually really shy and wary of strangers, so I wouldn't walk up to them and say hi. I'm actually REALLY afraid to talk to strangers.

    I definitely would say Hi. I think it would be really cool to see someone from here out somewhere and say hi in person.

    Yeah I would. Of course some RJ guys won't even say hi online so I'm not totally surprised if they didn't say hi in person. Could also be they're in the closet and wouldn't want an awkward situation.

    I'd definitely say hi—I'm always down for making new friends.

    You know what, chill out. I'd hate to infringe on your right to be an individual, but if you really want guys who are on a jock site, so limited clearly, to link you to an inch high avatar that you've got your head titled upward in, you may need a gimmick of some kind.

    kaicho saidalso,

    I have an excuse too, I was up binge eating.

    There are three active RJ people in my town I have never met any of them (and there is like 30,000 people here). I would probably through my panties at them if I did.

    To an RJ guy?
    Hell yeah.

    To you?
    I'd probably use a Hawaiian greeting - Hiawanna Leiya.

    I would say there is a better than 50% chance, yes.

    Wouldn't if it was clear that the "hello" might be an interruption or
    might not be appropriate given the venue or situation.

    It also depends who it is honestly. If its someone who I've chatted with or the like, sure. If I don't know them, it may not be welcomed.

    I have a memory like a sieve... my mother's lucky I recognize her.
    However, if I did see someone I recognized from RJ (and who I liked from online) I would absolutely say hello.

    I'm pretty friendly and hope that if anyone recognized me that they would say hello too, *especially* if I didn't recognize them. I love when people help me remember... what was I talking about?? And who are you?

    Based on previous experiences on another site, no I would not approach or say Hi to someone I recognized.

    However, if it was someone that I chatted with frequently and got to know a little, then yes I would.
