It happens sometimes that i comme across freemasons and not to sure how to act because a little while back there was a car with the official logo of freemasons with a G and i waved and the freemason waved back but he looked unconfortable. I came across him again and i didn’t know what to do… say hi again because he seemed happy. But i am a very shy person and more than happy to come across freemasons in the city where there are 3 rivers crossing this city… For some you are seen like superstars and alot of people are really interested because you are considered a secret society.

Thanks,

Philippe Heinisch Ducharme

P.s. on second part thougt i totally understand because if you say hi to a fellow that you don’t know and just because they are in a religion or a society. You really pass for an ousider even if your intentions are good.

I’m a bit confused about this question myself. If a stranger waved to me I would probably wave back and wonder where I had met him causing me to look a bit uncomfortable, too. To my knowledge, nobody has ever looked at me as a superstar :)

Just curious…

You have been posting many items/posts since at least this time last year. Have you actually petitioned and joined a lodge as of yet? If so then where?

I have asked for the info on how to become a freemason. There are two lodges about 1 hour and a half away in 2 Major City’s. My firsts approch of freemason was by leaving letters at these 2 lodges. Later on honestly approched freemasons on one of your official website and hoped to get somebody that likes science to exchange with. (My family and friends not really interested in science). On one of these lodges website i left my name and email and a few days later i was asked to fill in a form with all my contact information and the reason why i want to become a freemason. I haven’t filled the form yet. But i am not sure if i would be a good candidate because of my past even if i would probably be the one who would value the most being a freemason in your futur candidates. The way i treat my friends now i am the one who wants the most to helpout in good days and bad days.

I like exchanging with the few masons who are on this website i am shy of nature so it takes time for me to exchange with new people in real life…

Thanks,

Philippe

Fill out that form. You will never find out whether or not you are a “good candidate” unless you do. They are not going to ask you to join.

All, I have removed this user as I believe that there are other issues with the individual based on his online presence which I feel would distract us from our tasks here to inform the public.  If anyone disagrees with this, feel free to reach out to me on private message.
