Default Found this site, thought I'd sign up!

Hi,

My name is Mike, and I'm gay. I'm not out at all, except to a few online friends I have who are a part of another site that I belong to where I am a prominent member and a staff member. The other site I belong to is a teen help site, and I'm on there very often. The site consists of psych help, drug help, puberty questions, sexuality, family and friends, relationship troubles and then has a large general discussions section with various subjects :P Some similarities to this site. I don't know how active I'll be here since I'm there quite often, but I do like what I see here and I hope to be posting!

Hi Mike! Welcome to EC! There's a great community here, and it's really nice to be able to talk to people who share your experience! That's fantastic that you help with those teen help sites, they do a lot of amazing work.

Hello and welcome! It's a great site. I'm rather active on other sites as well, but I find myself on this one quite often since joining.
