What does the special person in your life think of your involvement in RealJock?

    Does he know about it?
    Does he care about it?
    Do you share your Realjock experience with him or is it your private little world?
    Does he take offense about it?
    Does he think you are wasting your time on it?
    Does he participate on RealJock as well?

    or.....
    Perhaps "he" is a "she"?

    The reason I am curious is because I was sitting around tying out a post and the guy I am dating looked over and said....

    "What exactly IS this site you are on all the time?"

    I had him lean over, take a look.......
    and within minutes he was bored and went back to reading his book.
    LOL.


    How about you? How does RealJock figure, or not figure in your special person's life?

    when I was here early on, we were together, he didn't give a crap, but that was expected, we were completely two different people with the internet, we had both looked at sites we visit, we both become bored, I think we made it to like the second site..

    My boyfriend knows that I participate in RJ. Occasionally, I'll mention something I've learned on here. But he's not a message board person, so it doesn't really interest him. Sometimes he'll tell me I need to step away from RJ and come to bed.

    My partner has no interest in social networking sites. His family, friends, and I can't even get him to create a Facebook account. He "wastes" all of his time on the Internet reading substantive articles.

    He doesn't really care.... He's seen my profile, knows my interest in fitness and health related concerns is major and knows some of the topics discussed (and thinks some of it is a waste of time). He knows its one of my social outlets
    and complains that I spend too much time here..... and this is somebody who spends hours playing games on Facebook (love ya!)... LOL

    Your partner sounds dreamy.

    Like many here, my partner finds it boring. He has no interest in a facebook site or its German equivalent - Wer kennt wen. The idea of people from his past finding him makes him shudder. "If I still wanted them in my life, and vice versa, they'd still be there." He doesn't really enjoy using the Internet as anything but a source of information - and online shopping. He prefers books ("the computer doesn't give you that "new ink" smell") and, lest you imagine he's the more intellectual one, he watches a lot more television than I do (okay, I don't watch any television, so it isn't hard).

    I occasionally show him the profile photos of people of our age or older still in fantastic shape, which we both find incredibly motivating and reassuring.

    Is he threatened by the occasional flirting that happens on the forums? He's sitting right next to me at his computer, so I'll ask... He asked me to tell him if it goes beyond flirting so he can decide whether to join us or not. Was he being facetious? You decide.

    My partner occasionally asks me what's up with the closet cases, otherwise he couldn't be less interested.

    Mine doesn't care at all. He's a member but doesn't participate and rarely logs on. Then again, neither of us are on the internet when we're together unless we're looking sometime up or watching something together. It's too solitary of an activity and we like doing stuff together! awwww

    i fwd RJ threads to him that I think he will enjoy/be interested in. i dunno if he is a member here, doubt it as his interests lie elsewhere.

    Mine is a member (Baxter2009), but he rarely, if ever logs in. He just doesn't have the time, and gets a lot of weird emails anyways. We both have access to all of each others accounts (email, facebook, RJ, etc), and the only time they're off limits is during birthdays, holidays and anniversaries, and during The Real Housewives..

    Mine hated it... but not because he thought I was flirting. He's just a natural-born-internetphobe.

    when I'm in a relationship I closed down my accounts no need for them. The only ocail nextwork that I am on during that time is Facebook to stay connected to my very large Latino/African American family. I would not concerned what social networks that my partner would be on. B/c we would discuss the rules of engagement. 8-) I don't see smoke if there is no fire.

    Not to be all cliche or trite, but it's thanks to Realjock that we met. Was talkin to a guy on here who said I should talk to his friend who had a lot i common with me. And yeah... things progressed from there.

    But he's on here too. And while we both may be flirts and teases at times, we also know who we come home to.

    My partner is a member on here (alex49). He did not want to join at first, but he did. Not a major thing with him as he is also a member of other sites. I do share info with him or vice versa. So it has been interesting and fun.

    My ex cant speak or read English. I sometimes told him about what I write and read here. Some information about safe sex, Real Jock members and etc. But we no longer together. So this stuff is all in the past.

    My partner knows I am on here, he could really care less....I told him one time that I could stand in a room full of naked men and he probably wouldn't bat an eye. He is so not the jealous type...I wish I could be more like him. haha.

    Mine (BGcat57) is on here as well (we met actually in these Forums) so naturally he doesn't mind one bit. The health and fitness information is important - and we have good friends here.

    My bf and I met through here. Since we've been together, though, he hardly ever signs on.

    My male person of interest has a RJ profile as well. That's how we met.

    By the way, my husband says that, yes, Nick Denbeigh is hot... touch-ups or not. And whoever the second model posted there is is also hot. And that before and after photo of Madonna is shocking and very eye opening.

    his 2 cents

    I like to mention from time to time what I've read on the many forums that I frequent. Usually, they don't have a problem.

    I'd say if someone is in a committed relationship and on this site, there is no reason to hide it from a partner. In my opinion, it's very shady if someone tries to conceal the fact they come on this site especially if they aren't misbehaving - - why hide? what's the big deal at that point?! I dealt with an issue very similar to this in my past relationship. My bf hid it, I found out from a friend who was on a certain site, then the trust dwindled from that point forward. We were very much in love - - he's now an ex! Catch my drift?

    To the guys that "hide" it, be honest with your partner about it ESP. if there's nothing to hide. Suppose the tables were turned, how would you feel if you found your partner on a gay site and he didn't say anything? Everyone is different of course, but, my main point is, if you have great relationship is it really worth losing esp. if it's harmless on your end? True love is VERY hard to find.

    Kudos to the men on here who are fully open and honest with your partners icon_smile.gif To those that aren't, perhaps you may want to reconsider.
