Straight Acting Gay

Quotes from the world of internet dating:

“I’m pretty straight acting, but that’s a term I don’t like, because I’m not acting.”

What does this mean?

Toe-dipping in the internet dating pool

Following my post on d-d-d-dating I haven’t really blogged any updates on what I’m actually doing, other than thinking about it. But there is progress! (Sort of.)

I have signed up on an internet dating site so I can make contact with comely young gentlemen seeking the same.

So far I have contacted no-one. Internet dating is strange. Why?

What am I living for?

I recently had a conversation with some friends. They were feeling old; one of them was soon to turn 30 and the other was pondering having his first child. Time was ticking on and he was beginning to ask himself if there were things he might never get the chance to do. It struck me really deep and I started to ask myself some tough questions.

What do I want to do before I die? What am I living for?

Future Sex

What we perceive to be the future is really a projection of the present, based on the past.

D- D- D- Dating

I have decided that it is time.

My church hunt is over, and I have settled not for the MCC, Quakers or liberal High Church, but for my local Evangelical church. It is fairly conservative, without an LGBT ministry. My hopes that I might find a boyfriend through my Church (yeah, that was a real hope) have been deferred. I’m not disappointed, but my last window on meeting a nice, single gay guy has been closed. This moment had been approaching for a while, and my head and my heart have been guiding me towards one conclusion. I need to meet gay guys. I need to start d- I need to start d-d-d-dating..!

Hard Sun

I have decided to start a new series of posts called Songs that Touch My Heart. Building on White Blank Page, I will occasionally review and reflect on songs that I feel have a special way of reaching into the soul and resonating with something deep inside.

All the posts in this series will be put into one category which is clickable in the menu on the right.

Hard Sun by Eddie Vedder (an Indio cover), is from the Into the Wild soundtrack .

Bad Religion

I have been looking for a church to settle in recently. It has got me thinking about the way we think about church and spirituality and how we think about being Christian today.  For one thing, I find that I initially had to tread very carefully into the world of organised religion. There is a such thing as bad religion and I do not intend to get caught up in it. But the question is, how much of Christianity today is bad religion?

White Blank Page

You desired my attention

But denied my affections

I find this song chastening, mostly because much of the time I do desire people’s attention and do my best to deny their affections. Not that I’m sleeping around or anything, but to a certain extent Jesus had a good point when he said that a man who even looks at a woman in lust commits adultery in his heart. It’s a good reminder that we must consider people, and relationships, whole, and not superficially.
