I have been out and active in the M2M scene for nearly 30 years. After the end of a 16-year relationship, and the death of my 2nd partner, I found it hard to get back into the dating scene. Then I found OP's Manly-Men group.
The Manly-Men group gave me the opportunity to meet lots of great guys and to hook up with me with similar interests as mine, particularly other men! I became a Calendar Guy on M-M, wrote the jingle for the group, and was asked to lead discussions! I continue to be active in the discussions and find that I rank second only to the group moderator for number of postings to the group. My interests continued to grow (as did the bulge in my pants) and I began exploring OP in general. I wrote my first blog, added to the polls, and became a defacto expert on health and sexuality on the magazine. I feel as though some of the guys who post regularly are part of my online family (although I'd prefer to have sex with all of these guys than to have them be part of my family!).
Participating in OP gives me much joy. It's damn fun, gives me the chance to explore my beliefs and feelings, provides a pool of sexy, hot, horny men to fuck around with, and helps me to feel like I'm contributing to my community. Who could ask for anything more? But of most importance, OP has given me a voice as an openly gay, proud, Midwestern, hairy, husky, nearly-50-year-old man! Thank you, OP, for letting the real Vanya-Vanya stand up!
