The Guy with two boy friends

As I mentioned in my last post, I was speaking with this guy who had two boy friends, and he showed me his first guy, who was really handsome. The guy I met wasn't so bad too, but the fact that he stood with the other (and being monogamous) to him was something that I wondered more than anything. 

That's when I realized something that I didn't before. Conventionally, Men go for looks and Women go for words. Which is something I really believe in, as I have seen that work. It took some time for me to realise that this guy I was talking to was amazing with his speech. This took me back to the times I was attracted to Kel, whom I missed at that point more than ever. Althoug Kel was handsome, hands down, what made me fall for him is the way he could hold a conversation. Be it with SDev or Dobby for that matter. Dobby isn't conventionally good looking, but I wondered why a friend of mine said that he likes him. Beyond his filtered pics and fake posts to make him look well off, he could hold an intellectual conversation, Also, he was a listener. Leaving this aside, I asked him directly, what is that makes them want you, The answer was that he is low maintenance

It made more sense than anything to me. I would dread those high maintenance guys who through a drama and seek attention. But on the other hand, I like attention. I would be attracted to someone with a good physique, but if someone can talk well, I don't think physique matters, as long as he is not bad to look at. 

The missing puzzle in the equation was just that. If you are pretty okay looking, and yet you carry yourself pretty well, and can hold a conversation well, may be that is all you need for a good relationship. Also, to be low maintenance and give more attention. These are the things I learned from the guy with two Boy friends.

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
