Why is it I can't seem to find someone to become my friend on here?

    I mean seriously, I know I am not the hottest person on here, and I don't claim to be. I don't even claim to be hot. All I would like is to have some actual friends I could talk to and get to know. I don't have many of them LOL.

    I don't know what you are doing wrong but 3 days into my membership I had made dozens of life-long friends, 3 fwb, and more hook-ups I care to remember.

    I had no friends for a very long time after joining Real Jock.
    After checking many profiles, I got the gist that to accumulate friends here you need to be:

    1. Under 50 years old, better still, under 40.
    2. Must be "hot" or to put it bluntly, his dick must stand on end when checking your profile pic.
    3.Very important - you must be well educated and hold a profession.
    4. You must be an atheist, but merely being agnostic is still acceptable.
    5. Never, never ever say that you have a female partner or that you have children.

    If you fail in any of these, there is one more chance - post electrifying material on the Forum.

    Sounds like you need to get out of the house more often if you're worried about making friends online!

    xrichx is right. the friends I've made have been through people sending me person messages in agreement or disagreement on forum posts. Stating the obvious, its easier to bond when theres something to bond over.

    Maybe (seriously - I'm not being snarky), the "partyboi" part of your screenname is turning some folks off. Not that this applies to you necessarily, but it's a phrase often associated with meth users/pnp.

    At the time I'm posting this, you have one forum post, that being the OP of this thread.

    Frankly I don't know how you'd get to know people here without posting to the forums. What means have you tried in the past to get to know people here?

    forum friendship is weird.

    you email them, they email you ... and then poof! they're gone.

    and then without notice they pop back up .. only to go again.
    i have internet friends i've been talking to in that sporadic manner for years.

    if you want to make some here at RJ, just email some profiles you've liked with material that will likely get a worthy reply.

    We do tend to have these come up on an occasional, but regular basis.
    I think of RJ as being a different form of "social party"... easier for some, not so easy for others. I have made a number of friends here.. and let me say we didn't always agree in the forums.. I can think of 2 of my better friends where we either were at odds and made comments directly to the other or we were at odds at some point. We worked through them.. today I not only like, but respect their views.

    Take the initiative here... I think thats key, you'll develop some friends.. there are decent guys here for sure.

    I just send random emails to members demanding them that they be my friend. That's how I roll.

    Hey partyboigonebad, you are just 18, looks wise you have potential and will get better as you grow older and lose puppy fat, right now go join a gym and build a nice physique atleast you wont be lacking in the looks and build department and may have people chasing you for friendship, but look after your looks and body dont let go, alsi experiment with different looks for your hair as well as facial hair, lots of cute boyish guys become very sexy keeping just a mustache.

    I used to know a scrawny ordinay looking guy, he started working out at age 16 with a vengence and turned into one of the hotest men I have come across.

    I joined RJ. Same day I browsed profiles, liked someone, sent an email, went out with them the next day...IN REAL LIFE =OOOOO!

    Send someone a message that directly expresses an interest to get to know them.

    It's a great site to find gabby chatty gay bois, but not so much for finding friends.

    I tend to disagree. I became very good friends with a guy from this site, and still stay in contact with him even though he moved to the west coast. icon_wink.gif

    are you serious? Why don't you focus your efforts on making HUMAN friends, ya know people with pulses and what not, rather than trying to befriend a speaking avatar on some profile.

    smh

    Reading their profiles before you send a message so you can engage something their specifically interested in is a good start. It also helps you to avoid any danger spots (for example in my profile I'm a bit of a tyrant about emails).

    Wait,, do you think you are not hot?
    You should always feel hot. It comes across as confidence that translates to hotness
