Out to Build Bridges

This is a GSRM (Gender Sexual Romantic Minorities or LGBTQ+) group.  But And straight men and cis-men are encouraged to join as well.However, unlike the already established AoM group "Gay and Bisexual Men", this group is wide open, no privacy settings enabled.  The overall purpose of the group is to encourage conversations between the straight and non-straight communities.  This already happens in AoM, but it is scattered.  And it can't happen in the private "Gay and Bisexual Men" group.Debate…See More

needing a change

Posted on March 3, 2014 at 2:25pm 14 Comments

I have taken odd jobs, trying to pay off student loans. I feel trapped in my current situation.

I want to move but not sure where. My family doesn't talk to me and I don't have friends to hang out with anymore (they are busy raising their family,etc.) I am not married and there are no kids.

So, what would you suggest?

no Lucius, I have not lied about anything. You are just still pissed because I refuse to believe what you believe in. You are a child.

Lucius, it would seem the opposite is true seeing as how you follow me everywhere.

Depending on sanitation conditions, and available safe drinking water, a case of diarrhea can be life or death important. FWIW.

At 11:44pm on February 19, 2014, John White said…

you're as important as a case of diarrhea.

At 9:51pm on February 19, 2014, John White said…

you aren't as important as you think you are.

At 8:44pm on February 19, 2014, John White said…

because your comments are not worth posting.

At 8:29pm on February 19, 2014, John White said…

Lucius, you should know by now that your comments only serve to prove me right.

At 6:59pm on February 18, 2014, John White said…

you cant prove jack and if you were an adult, you would have dropped this a long time ago.

"They're bigger rounds with better stopping power.  A 9mm is the weapon of choice for many, but it will often take a few hits center-mass to stop somebody.  .45s tear bigger holes, so it takes less shots to stop. JB"
