No No It's Automatic

Hi all,

'Hey how are you?' Seems like a simple message right? In most cases it's used to connect with someone you haven't spoken to in a while, or find out an update on a person. But there is another use for this phrase and it comes on the very special app this is Grindr. Usually from an account that is offline. The guy is typically 2'4" tall (although the picture makes them look taller). Usually a muscled boy next door type that is shown to make you think you have been contacted by the dreamiest of all guys.

But in fact its a bot! You quickly learn that these occur when you haven't used the app in a while and its been dormant on your device. Maybe its the Grindr team forcing you to open the app by showing you a notification. Maybe they sell your usernames to generate more business? Who knows? But what I know is if you engage in conversation you can get some pretty funny results.

So that's what I did. I replied 'I am fine, how are you?' The response from the fake bot is 'wow that was quick' (to emphasise its been a few days since I received the message and messaged back - which it has not). At this point I decided to have some fun...

Me: 'Thats what he said ;)'

Fake Bot (FB): 'I'm really horny, what are you doing?'

Me: 'I'm actually in the middle of a parachute jump, but I forgot my parachute!'

FB: 'Cool, do you want to jerk with me?'

Me: 'Didn't you read that? I'm falling to the earth and will die!'

FB: 'I'm super hard and really want to jerk with someone'

Me: 'Wow, you really don't care that I will die? What kind of person are you?'

FB: 'You should check out my cam (gives random website address). After you join give me your details and I will add you, if you like we can then meet up and have fun'

Me: 'That isn't going to happen as I'm about to hit the......'

FB: 'Let me know when you have done it, I'm so hard waiting for you' (Thanks for the concern)

At this point I decided to block them, which is what I usually do. I usually delete my Grindr at this point as well, but I have left it on there for a while. I find if I open it every few days I don't get the annoying fake bots. Instead I get the annoying horny guys who just want dick pics (Try looking in the mirror! lol).

Have any of you had fun stories with fake bots? Would love to hear them.

Until next time,

Welcome to my house

Hi All, I got the best news this week! I’m going to be a home (flat) owner!!!! For those that know me and my story you will know that this is a big deal. It means I can finally move out of my parents place and start living life the way I want to, and in pride month no less. What better opportunity could I ask for? It means that I can live with the love of my life, and do all the cute and fun couple-y things that we were always meant to do.  It means I can just be me. That’s the main point really. No more hiding who I am, no more having to answer to others. Free to be who I want, go where I want, come back to the flat whoever I want. It’s not like I’m in a jail sentence at home, but the comments made on how late I come back home do take their toll. I’m the type of person who wants it to be easy, don’t cause too much of a fuss and that way no fights or arguments happen. I mean I am human and I will provoke sometimes, but for the most part I’m easy going and want things to be

This is the end

Hi All, I hope you have all been well, and that these troubled times of COVID are getting better in your respective countries. Thankfully with the vaccines out things will eventually get better and somewhat back to normal. I hope everyone is staying strong during these times too, as they are tough and have really tested humanity to almost breaking point. I realise it has been a long time since my last post. I mentioned a few posts ago that I have run out of things to say about my journey. I have a wonderful partner, a lovely home with him and a nice balance with my family who I can keep my secret life a secret from. So things are going well. This is something the 'me' of a few years ago would have never imagined. I remember a time when I was doubtful I would ever be this happy and in a long term relationship. But I persevered and am better for it now. Even during a pandemic and lockdown(s) I have remained happy, and thankful that I could still work.  I guess one of the reasons

Out

Hi all, Hope everyone is keeping safe from the pandemic and that the pressures are starting to ease off a little in terms of lockdown. It has definitely been a strange year, and it will continue to be for a little while longer. I honestly feel we should write off 2020 and forget it ever happened. Despite all the tragedies and despair there have been nice things to come from it. People are being friendlier towards each other and helping neighbours. They are innovating in times of need and helping out in any way that they can. It will be tough to move forward, and the effects of the lockdown will last for a generation, but we will endure. My post is about a little gem that I found on Disney+ called Out. It's a short animation about a closeted gay man who is struggling to tell his parents about his boyfriend, and the reason he is moving because of it. This is a first for Disney, as they have never really showed an out and proud gay character in anything before. They have alluded
