Evening! So I got a little dilemma. About a month ago, a friend of mine from my hometown came up to Chicago to move. Like I did a couple of years ago, he came up here to find more opportunity, and so…Continue

Would you change sports teams allegiance?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Regular Joe Jul 27, 2015. 13 Replies

So I've been a Baltimore Ravens fan since the team won it's first Super Bowl 15 years ago, and for a while I was a huge fan, die-hard even.  Trouble is, I'm originally from Baltimore, I hated living…Continue

Hey guys, so I've been seeing a girl for about three months or so.  Long story short, we knew each other before, we were friends, and then things got real deep.  Currently, we live 90 minutes away,…Continue

"You know, we could merge this with the "Shirtless around women" thread and end up with some disturbingly outside-the-box ideas!  (Except that this houseguest is a dude.  Ah, well.)"
