Welcome to Grommr, the next generation in social networking for guys into gaining, encouraging and all things belly.
This is a site for guys of a similar mindset—that bigger is, most often, better. It's a site for all the guys who spent their childhoods stuffing pillows under their shirts or staring a little too long at big-bellied men in the supermarket. And for guys who always thought infomercials got the "before" and "after" pictures in the wrong order. This is a site for those of us who watched with an unexplained fascination The Santa Clause, Raging Bull or any other movie or TV show featuring men with expanding waistlines. And it's for the guys who always thought they were alone in their desires until the day they discovered Bellybuilders, Gainrweb or the Frat. This is a site for doctors, lawyers, waiters, students, businessmen, truckers, dog-walkers, Oscar-nominees and everyone in between. And it's for guys of every size—from skinny to bellied to massively huge. But ultimately, this site is for anyone who feels they belong here. Welcome home.
Grommr is part social network, part personals. We've blended the best of both worlds—allowing users to connect with their friends and the community at large and also seek out the kinds of guys they like for dates, romances, hook-ups or friendships.
The site has been designed with a particular emphasis on the emerging needs of our ever-maturing community—including easier ways to meet face-to-face and set up group events; strong search functions to find local guys who share your interests; and customized features for tracking gains and progress.
So you might be wondering, what on earth is a "grommr"? Grommr is actually a contraction of two words: growth and community. It's a name that subtly conveys the idea of this site as a welcoming place for all guys into growth—whether that be belly, muscle, fat all over—but also takes on a new meaning all its own. "Grommr" has some meaning for our community, but it's also a name that you could feel comfortable saying out loud in a bar or having your roommate (or boyfriend) see in the browser history without knowing exactly what it meant. Having shared computers at one time or another in our lives, that's something that resonated with the Grommr team.
In order to be self-sustaining, Grommr offers a paid premium option known as GrommrXL. By paying a small monthly fee (as low as $5 per month), premium members have access to special features, unlimited photo viewing and uploading and unlimited e-note use. But it's also important to the Grommr team that non-paying members can actively engage in the site as well. That's why regular members still have access to basic features (including updating their profiles, posting wall and photo comments, private messaging and more) and are able to view a limited number of photos each day.
