if you've come here,
you're warm for my form? Cool. If so, odds are, you can save
yourself some time by going to OkCupid
to see how compatible we're not. But if the site doesn't say "Y'All Got Issues," feel free to say Hi.
I see men say over and over that they
hate writing profiles, and would
rather answer endless questions in person. To me, as an introvert, that
I would much rather create my own FAQ.
Skip past all the getting to
know you chitchat and start having real conversations about things like
dreams... I've got a mountain of projects, and 3.5 billion men to sort
through. I prefer the efficiency.
As I like to say, your profile lets me know what's on your mind. So, please, don't leave it blank.
I came out to myself at 17 largely because I discovered my love for maximum
glutes. It took me a few more years to make it official. In that time,
I tended to be anywhere from packing on a few extra pounds, to double
my healthy weight. Believe it or not, that contributed to me feeling
quite unpopular among gay men. Then, I lost a lot of weight, and I thought, okay,
this ought to resolve that. Here's the result. Unfortunately,
the body got skinny, but the
brain still behaved like a fat girl at the high school dance. Yes, I
did have some fun, and found out some encouraging news about myself... I went to Long
Beach Pride and met a great guy from the other side of the country. I
actually got to be in the West Hollywood Pride Parade, and I don't
remember being booed or hissed for a change, but when the parade was over, I was bored out of my
gourd. And then I did Pride here in my own back yard, Orange County. I
think I was mentally done...
The problem wasn't the weight. It was my personality! Yay! No sarcasm
there... You see, I happen to like my personality.
If others don't, I can stop worrying
about trying to please them... I spent most of my life doing things the
way I thought I
was supposed to, the way the world said was right. And I was miserable.
When I realized that in 2013, I didn't quite have a name for it, but I
decided to listen to my own heart for a
change... Gradually, for the first time in my life, I was open to
meeting new people, but I was no longer "looking." I gave being a
bachelor a chance. And the results were amazing. I met some really
great men that I hope to know for the
rest of my life. And I've become acquainted with a few more I hope to
meet in the near future. I don't necessarily believe in The One, but if
there is one, maybe it'll be one of them, when my schedule permits. Or
maybe it'll be you.
