    OK, so an RJer is staying in south Florida for a few days, and as always when a member contacts me, we agreed to meet, along with my partner. He immediately recognized my partner as someone he knew from their nearby MCC gay church, when he previously lived here! I was like stunned!

    And we met in a gay bar, that I knew was later hosting a group of leather men who are our friends. And guess what? The RJ guy used to be into leather himself, and his eyes lit up as the leather guys arrived. I whispered into his ear that our good friends, who run the group, also keep a dungeon in their home. They used an iPhone BUMP app to swap contact info, as I did, too. We left early, giving our RJ friend unencumbered free reign to all these leather guys.

    Isn't the Internet wonderful, and gay sites like RJ? Modern marvels that let us set up things like this, with guys thousands of miles apart. I suppose younger guys will shrug, and say what's the big deal? But to me, at least, it is nothing less than fucking miraculous. icon_biggrin.gif

    That's fuckin cool!
    And yeah, even though I haven't met many people from RJ yet (count them on one hand with fingers left over), I can say that those I've met have been very cool people.

    Are you fucking kidding with this response to Wilton's post? This, coming from you...you bloody stupid, fat, "bitter" old sod. How dare you?!?!?!?
    To say what you did to anyone is ridiculous, but to direct that at Wilton?!? icon_eek.gif
    He is one of, if not the nicest guy on this site!

    So the forums are here only for what......subjects you are interested in only? Piss off then! icon_mad.gif
    If this topic didn't interest you, then you should have skipped it.
    I find it to be a very small world here on RJ. It is brilliant that some have connected through this fantastic site!

    However, looking the way you do, and from the wonderful attitude you have exhibited here, no wonder you are a "bitter bitch" as someone else referred to you as. Maybe you can channel all of that bitter jealousy and use it in the gym where you obviously and desperately need it the most!
    I think it's so laughable that on your profile you penned about yourself: "reserved, quiet, thoughtful, observant, considerate, intolerant of fools....etc....."
    Yes, that "considerable thoughtfulness" of yours is certainly one of your more noticable characteristics. (Aside from the obvious physical ones. (Stupid bloody cow!))
    How do you "tolerate" your own "foolishness?"

    Thanks guys. If you read my stuff here you've probably already noticed that I usually try to make a point or convey some kind of message with these personal anecdotes. Not that I haven't slipped and posted some pretty vapid & useless stuff at times, but I try to keep those to a minimum. My message with this one?

    - That meeting fellow RJers can be fun & rewarding, and sometimes even amazing, like last night. Try it yourselves!
    - If you're traveling somewhere, tell other RJers. They may be able to help you to have a better time there, either with advice online, or by getting together with you in person. It was our out-of-town visitor who shot me an RJ email.
    - Volunteer to help out a visiting RJer with tips & advice, or showing them around in person.
    - The members I've met are great guys, never been disappointed yet. In fact, one we both previously joined for dinner will be attending my birthday party next week along with his partner. We were also guests at their lovely home near here.

    I know lots of us do all of the above already, we read those threads here all the time. But even more RJers can, too, and it's them I want to encourage to do likewise, by assuring them how much fun it was for my partner & me last night, not a dull duty or obligation.

    Hey Bob, thanks for sharing that... I always enjoy hearing about those personal
    connections that you discover along the way.... and nice of you to allow the RJ member the flexibility of a little "discovery" of his own....

    When I'm in West Palm the next time I'll have to be a little more gregarious about exploring RJ connections on my own. I usually don't have (or haven't made) the time for such things.

    Wilton, that story made me more than a little wistful. We've yet to meet another RJ guy.

We left early, giving our RJ friend unencumbered free reign to all these leather guys.

    Well include us, too, we do sometimes go up there, or maybe we'd all have something to do in Boca, where my partner's sister lives and we also visit fairly regularly.

    Well you know we'll meet if you ever come to south Florida, even the Keys if the timing's right. Don't you guys ever get down to Seattle? Lots of members there, and a lively gay scene, especially in the Cap Hill district. And there are dozens of members in Vancouver not far from you, or is that too close to count?

    Interesting it is; Vancouver is so close but we haven't met any RJ guys locally on line here that wish to meet.

    Yes it is very miraculous. I've met a RJer myself who lives thousands of miles away too - and he is one of the smartest and nicest guys I've ever met. Just to think a few decades ago, gay guys were isolated due to geography and a lack of technology. I really feel sorry for guys who lived many many decades ago wondering who else was out there while dealing the terror of someone else finding out their "secret." Yeah, we've come a long way. icon_biggrin.gif
