My advice to you who want to back away, don't go to a GFMPH gathering, like the next one in Baton Rouge in April.
Once you meet some of guys that are on here, and realize what a neat bunch of guys are attached to the monikers they have used, you will be even more desirous of keeping in touch. Even worse, you will start calling and e-mailing them.
I don't anything about the other groups. But this forum has some really great men who are caring individuals. I hope to meet many more.
