Setting a Standard

For all of you out there. The Gay world is haphazard. Very few I see have come in terms with themselves and have lived a meaningful life. I wish to see more that way. Being Bi, Gay or Trans is not something that we need to be ashamed of, instead, I invite you to make meaning out of it. Something that gives me hope, would be that.

Going through countless profiles, dreaming, getting disappointed, the loneliness and the ache when you are not accepted. For someone who is closeted, the pain is as real. Sometimes you wish you could just come out and be okay with it, but the scene in the Gay world is not so inviting. Seeing a couple of my friends who are openly gay, they lead a life that makes me wonder if I would ever want to take such a decision. and the worst part is that, its not their fault at all!. In fact, they are the saviors (as long as they came out because they made meaning and not because it was apparent). To hide a part of your identity, however small, is a task.

I was told that the Gay relationship need not be heteronormative. I wouldn't know how many would agree to this, but for me Gay is "Normal" as much as a heterosexual relationship. To be Monogamous is not about the gender, but the respect you give to the other person. It is about going deep inside the ocean of the person and when you are smitten by them, the fascination only grows. To respect and be with one person and to passionately get to know him, to be surprised by the similarities or compatibility and to accept the differences of one person, and to evolve and be evolved by the other is worth all this wait. When we set our standards, we don't settle for anything less. We strive and change and break our heads. When we find him, it all makes sense. Wait till then and whine, cose those days are over!

End of a time

It's been so long since I wrote. But then when I see people read my blog, and say how much they relate. It compels me to write more. I thought that I don't have much to write anymore. Same old issues, same old stories. I even didn't want to write thinking that the issues I mentioned would probably dilute the matter with too many posts. But then I write today because something recently struck me hard. A conversation with a love interest who is looking for a partner, realized that I talked a lot about my previous love .Which I didn't know was so obvious. But I clearly didn't move on. After may be discussing for a whole hour, he asked if I am looking for a lover or a partner? Because you don't have much time until you spend time loving someone who may never be your partner. That's when I realized that I for all these years, haven't had a proper romance, and I am already out of that age. I am old enough to settle down and look for a partner, instead of

Walk of Shame

usually walk of shame happens when you have had sex with a total stranger, and you just regret to have done that while getting back home in the morning. But, to me it was different. Some few months back, I met this guy, he was really smart. well behaved and very talented. Mind you, I didn't meet him on any apps, but for work. Everytime he comes to work, he gives special attention to me, while other men "see", he "watches" me. While other man just touch, he "feels" me. He used to openly make it clear that he is there to see me and me only. I used to feel so special. But I never had the guts to reciprocate. Partly because the reputation he has for being a player. he is extremely smart, very soft spoken and has that charm. Girls fall for him so easy. I used act like I don't like him, but all my peers started noticing the attention I get from him. He talks only to me, the way he looks at me, how closely he stands, how he gets pissed if I have a figh

What I would tell my young gay self

Sometimes when you are gay, you are isolated, there are no mentors to guide you what is right and what is wrong. You have to tread carefully and move forward. With all the experience that I have gained so far, I would have to see what is gonna work and what doesn't. A few things that I would want to tell my younger self if I were to meet him. 1) They are as scared as you are - I remember the days when I used to ask a hundred questions before I share my photos. I was worried that I would be blackmailed, that I would be raped, and that the guys would kidnap and sell me off. Yes, all this does happen. There are many who are really evil, but as time went, I realized that most of the guys are just helpless and are scared themselves. There are many married men who live a double life, there are famous men, who don't want to come out, there are young boys who are going through the same as you. In fact, some of them are more closed than you are! 2) You would be rejected - Rej
