Installing Rails Mac

I am unable to install rails on my mac. I am using 10.9 , but was unable to install with 10.8 either. The examples in the tutorial do nothing for me. I followed this. It is also not working. Particularly when I try to install rails I get
"Unable to require openssl, install OpenSSL and rebuild ruby (preferred) or use non-HTTPS sources". I checked that OpenSSl is installed and it is. I re-installed X-Code, and the dev tools. Re-installed ruby via rvm multiple times via various suggestions online. I installed OpenSSl manually and re-installed ruby. Nothing I can find online will work for me. Kind of new to this. What am I doing wrong? Thanks. :)

Give JewelryBox a shot. It's a GUI for managing RVM, but it can install RVM for you too if you don't have it installed yet. Great for starting out but once you get going with RVM it's much easier to work with it from the command line.
