"I'm definitely much quieter when I'm the new person in the group, but quiet and reserved is certainly the opposite of who I am once I get used to people. It takes time and, I guess, I just want to know who I'm dealing with."

Difficulty with being confident/making friends

Hey guys. I am currently a guy in my mid-20s who has a problem with talking to other guys and establishing friendships with them. Whatever I see a group of guys get together and hang out, they seem so confident and have a great time chatting with each other. I want to be in a group and have a good time and experience the joys of hanging out with good buddies, but I lack the confidence and have poor self-esteem to even meet new people. I can be quite shy, and always fear that I would be just…See More

Wrestling Fight Club

This group is for anyone interested in the sport of wrestling, whether you wrestled in school or are just a fan and want to learn.  People say it's a dying sport but the popularity of MMA has really brought home the importance of wrestling as a skillset that every man needs, especially anyone interested in martial arts in general.  Hopefully this can facilitate discussion and people looking for training partners in their areaSee More
