Thread: Introducing myself since i just registered here :)

    Introducing myself since i just registered here :)

    Hi everyone! I just want to introduce myself to all of you, mermen and mermaids.

    My name is Alexis, i'm 24 and i'm french, living in Paris. I just heard about Eric Ducharme and his passion for mermaids and suddenly, deep in myself, he awoke a flame
    which has been burning in my heart since i was little, from the moment i watched "the little mermaid" movie. Eric and i have something else in common, i'm also gay just like him and i hope to find a boyfriend as supportive as his.

    Nice meeting all of you and I'll be checking back often since i have a lot of questions
    to ask.

    Friendly.

    Alex

    I think that's MVD, but it is most definitely a gorgeous tail. WELCOME!

    Hi Kalani,

    thanks for the quick reply. It's 3.42 am in Paris and i don't feel like sleeping yet because i'm so excited!
    I'm glad to join the mermaid community, you can count on one more gay merman here LOL.

    Unfortunately, my avatar represents my dream tail and the merman there is none other than Mike Van Daal who is the creator of Flip Tails. In this picture, he's swimming with his "Aquamarine" creation. The tail is amazing and i can see myself wearing it since the blue is my favorite color and perfectly matches the sea!

    Oh goodness yes, you learn pretty quickly here to distinguish one tail from another. Did you find Eric from My Crazy Obsession? If you did, I'm psyched that it wasn't as negative as we thought it was! =D

    Thank you Thalassa!

    i can't imagine mermaids without mermen to keep them company, right?

    MerEmma,

    are you a psychic?! Because it's totally from "My Crazy Obsession" that i have heard about Eric Ducharme.
    Funny story by the way because i heard about him on a gay porn blog and i saw the video of him swimming underwater and i was honestly stunned by what i saw!!!
    And ever since that, i have checking about Eric and merman tails since two days until now and i have decided to join here

    Hello and welcome! Glad you discovered us! We could definitely use more mermen!

    Haha, well, we all knew we'd get some light on the community but I didn't think it'd be so fast when it all came in and such. Glad you joined! And I'm no psychic...at least not that I know of. Would be pretty cool to be a psychic mermaid. ;P

    Hey~! (I still feel newbie-ish on here, so I feel weird saying welcome...but yeah.) Nice to have another mer swimming around! And your story there made me laugh. ><

    if i compare my number of posts and yours, i really feel like i'm a baby merman LOL

    A pleasure to meet all of you, ladies. Treat me well, you have a french gentleman in your ranks from now on

    i'm looking forward to ask my big questions to my seniors. i will post a new thread tomorrow. would that be ok?

  14. #14
    Oh yep, you can post quite a few threads here, haha. I didn't post my first thread aside from my introduction for what felt like forever (but wasn't really) because I was really nervous. Everyone here is so crazy welcoming and accepting and nice, I've really learned so much here and I've changed a lot since I joined. So glad Eric's appearance will shed some positive light on the forum too. You've got a lot to learn. :P

    Mermaid Pickles,

    i'm glad to know that my story about finding Eric Ducharme on a gay gossip porn blog made you laugh. Here is the quote which was written under his video from TLC :

    "More proof that gay marriage really is a slippery slope. If a man can marry another man, what’s to stop that man from marrying another man who thinks he’s a mermaid?"

    I couldn't stop myself from laughing after reading that!

    But then, i watched the video and Eric awoke an old dream.

    Well, it was just so out of the ordinary. I literally did a double take at your post there. And promptly laughed. But hey, to each their own, and who am I to judge? I think I have more guy friends who are gay than not, now that I think about it.

    MerEmma,

    you seem to know A LOT about Eric Ducharme than i do. Is it me or you have a negative opinion about him? Some things you said were awkward.

    "If you did, I'm psyched that it wasn't as negative as we thought it was!"
    "well, we all knew we'd get some light on the community but I didn't think it'd be so fast when it all came in and such."
    "So glad Eric's appearance will shed some positive light on the forum too."

    Am i wrong?

    OH NO. I mean that My Crazy Obsession showed mermaiding in a very negative light and the community has been kind of worried about it since it aired. The comments on news stories have been negative as well and it's just most of us. I don't have an overly negative opinion about him but you'll kind of figure out about how the community is with him. I don't really know how to explain it easily, sorry. I guess there have just been issues in the past (that have mostly been worked over now though!).

  19. #19
    well, since i'm living in France, all i could see is a two minutes video of Eric brieftly explaining his passion on the TLC show "My Crazy obsession".
    That's all i saw and in my opinion, it wasn't really bad at all.

    How exactly does it show a negative light on the mermaid community? On the contrary, it seems to be making a buzz on the internet, right?

  20. #20
    It is making a buzz, but the show made it out to be more WEIRD and CRAZY and FREAKY. It made it seem like mers are freaks and just...I don't know. It just makes it seem really weird and bad. I'm bad at explaining things, I apologize. :s
