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.

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

Beards

So I grew a pretty nice beard last winter, did not shave the face (did shave the neck) from September to March. It was fairly gnarly by March.  Looking for some good direction on opinions.  Style a beard yourself or pay the $5.00 and have a barber do it?  If you style it yourself, where did you learn and what do you use.  I am a bald guy, short, athletic build.  Just want to look nice with a bald head and beard, I know it can be done.  Look forward to your thoughts.  I have attached a picture…See More
