Dating a girl and a guy at the same time

There are certain things which you think you would never do in your lifetime, but then the circumstances push us to it. Something like that happened in the past week. I ended up meeting a guy, very sweet guy who loved me to the core, he had honey for words and passion in his eyes. We had a great time, we spoke for a hours as if its just ten mins. We both felt it, that we liked each other, and he proposed. I rejected, or pretended to. Because I loved him, but it wouldn't work out.

This guy came to me, while planning a date with his fiance. Yes, he was about to get engaged. He apparently just decided to date me for a hookup, but things turned serious as he said that he was falling for me. If only. if only he had not said all that. It was painful, but then I hid it, I was trying to be understanding, because, I loved him. We both shared about each other a lot, and then he only asked me to stay with him and be his lifelong "friend", while he gets married. Not the first time I have gotten such an offer. All these married men want a "partner" who would be proclaimed as his lifelong "friend" who would be in a open relationship with him. 

I thought I was chilled out to be okay with it, but I couldn't. The week he met his fiance, they finalised on his wedding and from then, I was an unwanted toy. He said great things, he said he loved me, but then none of that he said and he did made sense. I started feeling that its already dying. and then I ended it, atleast I'll leave with the little self respect left. 

Having said that, I thought I completely understood how he felt, because there was this girl who is interested in me, and a lot. She has been caring and understanding, very pretty. The irony of the situation was that while she was behind me, asking if we could meet or call or text, I would be foolishly waiting for him to text. I craved for his attention and he was behind his "girl", his "bae", his "love", and he would dedicate songs to her and tell me so proudly that he was talking to her. 

Even now, as I think of it, I feel proud of myself. We had an amazing time, it was magical, but I wasn't sure if he was trustable, he had told me many times how he had kept a distance from guys who were getting too close, for the first time, I rejected him while he was trying to get close. Well, all I can say is that I followed my intuition. As for the girl, I don't "Feel" all that affinity towards her, but then she wants someone at this point, and I would be there, until I leave the country for good.

I still wonder if he is pretending to love her, or if he is pretending to love me. To me I genuinely have feelings for him, and I crave to be with him, while not the same with the girl. I now understand how these married men want a guy even though they are married. But I still don't feel like advocating such decisions, because I feel that two people are being taken for granted. Don't we deserve exclusivity and passion?

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
