Taken for granted

I would say that I am that person who takes things for granted unless I loose it, And with the people around me, I wouldn't take that risk. Having been someone who has been in his own company most of the time, I know the value of people in my life. Yet, there are those who don't.

Gay men are those beings who are okay with being taken for granted. A guy can sleep with several men, and those men offer themselves happily. In a way, when there is more supply of any goods, its value goes down. Like we make sure our iPhones are unscathed, but our notebooks torn and twisted. Gay men give their heart away so easy, those with the good body can have ample, and be an ass, only to see more men licking his boots. We are taken for granted at every point and we are okay with it. Getting married while his boy friend becomes his best man. He doesn;t speak a word. Being ignored in public, while enjoyed in private, we accept it as our fate. Being okay with being treated as a "timepass". He hangs out with you until he gets a better meat. How can you be okay with it?!

From Open relationships to cheating boyfriends, to leaving the guy spread eagle without a even a kiss, the stories that I hear makes me wonder if we are not taking ourselves seriously. Even to be rejected, I like those who ask me, "Sorry, but may I know why you are not interested in me?", and I gladly reply accordingly. When you are not taken for granted and stand up to yourself, there would be this group of people who would suddenly alienate you. you would feel stranded all alone, but then as time goes by, you meet those who would value your presence and take you seriously. But are we ready to let go of our old space of comfort?

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
