    Wow! I stumbled upon EC again in my bookmarks today so I thought I would log on and say "HI!" :slight_smile: I'm not sure if many people will remember me, but I saw a few usernames I remember as I poked around the threads.

    Not sure why I'm posting this thread exactly, but it just feels good to know that this site is still around. I was in a very dark place when I found EC and it probably saved my life. To anyone reading this that is not out yet or is having a hard time, hang in there! It definitely got better for me.

    I'm doing really good these days :slight_smile: I'm one semester (maybe two...) off finishing my BA of arts with an English major. I'm out, proud and have a great group of friends. My parents have finally accepted my sexuality and my home life is waaay better than it used to be. I even have a new dog! Things are great.

    But the main reason I wanted to come say hi was that I saw my Giant Video Thread for a sticky! EEEeeeeeeeeeee! I am so happy! I really believed in that thread and I'm sooooo happy it is still in use and helping people. I am so very honored to have a sticky on this amazing site. It just blows my mind.

    I may stick around and try and post once in awhile now. Did anything major happen in the past year and a half or so I've been gone from EC? Any major news? Let me know! and if you remember me, let me know that too! :slight_smile:

    It's a Poodle/Shih Tzu cross...

    But I don't carry it around in a purse or anything because I have not bought one yet

    So glad to see you back. I've thought about you several times over the past few months.

    I'm glad to hear that you are doing well.

    Always good to see people who no longer 'need' EC saying hello again - especially when the news is all happy and positive. :icon_bigg

    Hi!

    I'm also visiting after a year's absence (last visit 21 Oct 2010 according to the forum), though not as big a social butterfly as Greggers, so I don't expect anyone to recognize me.

    It's good to see there's still plenty of the regulars and activity.

    Lot's has happened to me as well. Moved, new job. Though it's a smaller more conservative town :/ I also got to visit a "village" in a large city, much better than what passes as a village in my home town.

    I remember you both, Greg and Kenko. Although, I doubt you remember me. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    Glad to hear that you're both doing well. I hope you two stay around this time. :slight_smile:

    GREG!!! long time no see indeed! And I'm apalled, Kenko, that you'd think I could forget you either!

    Good to see things are going well!

    EC-wise... I think it's still mostly the same as when you left. Some people left, others appeared, and the same happend with staff people. On the whole a lot of people came out, over the last year or so, so I think we're mostly doing our job :wink:

    Greg! I was wondering if you fell of the face of the planet or something! I'm pleased that everything turning out well for you now :grin: It's really good that your parents have accepted you at long last too.

    Little new things have happened to me, some major ones too :slight_smile:
