This is Ru's partner. I just discovered he was a member of this group. I am not sure how to inform those who know him from here, but will do my best. Last April, Ru was going through a very difficult depression. His family, friends, and myself tried to help him. Unfortunately, we were not able to. And he ended his life. I have struggled, trying to figure out what I could have done to prevent this, but know I did all I could.
For thos of you who had become friends with him, I am sure this is a shock. He was such a giving person, caring, and the best friend I could ever have. I ma sure he helped several of you as well. At least I hope he was able to.
To those who are still interested in a different group, Ning decided to make some "Major Changes". They began to charge for the use of the site/space. So I have set up a different place on the web. It is a bit different with the layout and format, but once you have bee nthere for a bit, you will get used to it.
I feel an apology is in order from me. With the way my schedule has been this summer, I have not been able to be on here, nor the MSI site as often as I want to be. Yes, even tho I set up the site I have had to depend on the other Admins to assist with any questions/problems. They have been great help to me and the others who have joined the "new" site.
As it starts to cool down, and I am slowly getting back to normal, I will be able to post more here too. I like everyone else enjoy the experiences we have shared previously on here. I just felt MSI was needed because of the treatment some members here were getting. I wanted a place where no judgements were held. With everyone who has signed on at http://grou.ps/msi4men/home I feel we have gotten to be more comfortable with all topics.View Thread
Refresher... Hey Guys, it has been brought to my attention some are still posting suggestive and possible "come on's" to meet up here on WebMD. I want to stress again, this website is not for that. Giving personal info re: will be in your town, etc.. is not part of this group. For those type of comments, please take it over to http://msi4men.ning.com/
WebMD is a great place to discuss medical, health, and more refined sexual issues. But for more "colorful" comments we have the other place.
Here is the link for you Gap.. http://msi4men.ning.com/ It does ask for some info, but not alot. Just want to know a few things about you. It is kept private, so feel free to join us if you still like or are interested.
I forwarded the email to Ramases. I want to thank you for your kind words, and your contributions here. I know that sometimes the topics tend to lean more towards the gay/bi intimacy here. Please know I understand that many brothers who are here are not gay or bi. I know I may not be able to add as much to the topics concerning straight issues, because I have not had any such relationships. But I do feel some of my own relationships may help as non-gender relevent concerns. After all... we are all human, and all have the same emotions. That above all is what makes us who we are.View Thread
I understand your comments, and your questions. I only set up the ning web site because there were several who were feeling they wanted more of an outlet to be more graphic with sharing. Part of that is being able to share photos. WebMD is not a place to "air" your deepest/hidden desires. That is what started the original break from Man to Man, and setting up the MSI group here. Then again, guys wanted to be a bit more free, so I took the chance to set up yahoo/ning site.
Yes.. there are many who are looking for the nudity, and the more indepth details of physical relations amoung us.
Yes.. there are hints and blunt comments about being able to meet in person. (again WebMD is not a place for that. I made that clear in our statement above. "NOT a Place HOOK-UPS".) MSI4Men on Ning can be whatever we want it to be.
I am not looking to divide us as brothers. With that said, I still comment to them, to continue sharing here as well. It is up to them what they decide to do.View Thread
I have been thinking the same way as you lately. Mine is not all to do with stress though. I have gone through some low confidence levels lately, and have wondered how to build my self esteem. When I get into these moods, I also start to feel jealous of others. That I am not accepted, or that everyone is "talking/laughing" about me. Any help from you guys would be great.
As for stress... Take time to evaluated the situation. Decide that the stress is nothing more than something you are unsure of how to control. Find a way to control it, and face it head on..View Thread
