    So I'm fairly new to this sight and when I logged in today I noticed the headline at the top of the RealJock page read:

    "RealJock: Gay sports and gay fitness for gay jocks, athletes, and fitness buffs."

    I happen to be passionate about fitness/health and I am an athlete and of course I'm Gay :-) What is the main reason you're a member of RJ?

    In the real world, eating lean proteins, whole grains, fruits, and veggies makes me strict; on RJ, it makes me healthy.

    In the real world, waking up at 6am to go for a shirtless run makes me crazy; on RJ, it makes me dedicated.

    In the real world, having a pot belly is normal; on RJ, having a six-pack is normal.

    In the real world, I'm an alien who for some reason works very hard to stay in shape; on RJ, I'm just a fellow athlete.

    To see if I could find guys in my area that aren't total flamers and make friends. Second to have a place to get advice on things I can't get answers to elsewhere since I am semi-closeted. Third for workout tips and weight gaining advice.

    I am here because it's fun trying to figure out who is phony and who is real.

    i've met various other gay mountain biking aficionados which is fantastic given i've only ever met one in real life.
    and filtering through all the nonsense taht can be posted on the site there is always a little pearl of knowledge to be found, be it about fitness, nutrition, health etc. And learning it from gay fellows makes it more fun .

    and when you get bored you can always look at hot guys.

    Same reason as ncsu20

    To see if I could find guys in my area that are like minded and to make new friends.

    Second to have a place to get advice on things I can't get answers to elsewhere since I am still semi-closeted.

    Third for workout tips and weight gaining advice.

    My husband joined this site to meet like minded people. To make friends with other athletic, less flamboyant gay men. Because he enjoys it, and he's met some pretty cool guys, I decided to give it a try.

    I got catfished by a guy on match.com who confessed, when i pressed him for who he stole the pix from that he was using on his fake profile... He told me realjock.com and the user name.

    I never heard of realjock before then, so i joined, tracked down the real guy to whom the pics belonged, and struck up a conversation with him, telling him the story. He was amused, at least.

    I stuck around, made a few friends, met a few, and now it's a place to hang out and stay in touch... And make a few new friends in the process.

    It's a way to connect and converse with other gay guys. I also like the running log thread because I can post my own boring running details that my Facebook friends would get too tired of reading.

    I work from my desk at home and I like a lot of the guys here. Masculine without the crazy. So when I get bored, I can toggle over and enjoy some eye candy or conversation. And I like the workout/athletic focus vs random.
