    Hi everyone :smilewave

    So I finally did it. I had been lurking for months, but now it's official. I decided to man up and I joined EC. It was a tough decision for me, partly because I feel that being here is kind of like making a statement (even if I haven't filled out the orientation column for now). So there's that and a couple other reasons, but I'm not going to bore you. :icon_wink

    I really hope to make some new friends here and find people to talk to about... everything, really.

    For obvious reasons I'd rather not give you my real name, but feel free to call me by my user name or just Joe(y).

    Cheers

    And no, unfortunately I don't speak Spanish, though I really wish I did.

    Hey, Joe.
    Keith here, and I just really want to say, "Hi!" since that's really all I can think of (sorry).
    I agree that joining this site is making a statement to yourself about being gay, bisexual or transsexual, that's the reason what made joining this site a little easier is that I had already admitted to myself that I'm gay. Anyway, hope to "see" you around!

    Thank you, Lad. And Kieth, no need to be sorry, "Hi" will do :slight_smile:. I'm sure we'll get many opportunies to have more extended conversations in the future.
