Where have all the good men gone?

Hi all,

I'm on holiday at the moment! It's been so much fun, done a lot of trekking and seeing natural beauty all around me. It's been nice just taking a step back from the fast paced world of city life and going back to basics. Unfortunately though this means that there aren't many guys around if you want to lay pipe ;).

Case in point, I downloaded Grindr (I'm on holiday so don't judge). I found a few guys near me, no one really peaking interest until I got to the third row and found a guy that ticks all the right boxes. Tall, handsome (but not too handsome), nice smile... He was great. His profile was funny too (humour always wins), BUT he was 120 miles away! I thought I was seeing things but it was true. I know I am in the middle of a small town but didn't think pickings would be this slim! I looked back through the first couple of people and realised that other than me there were only 3 other gays in the village. It could have been the time of day, or lack of Grindr users but it made sense in some ways.

Oh well, I decided to go solo in my endeavours. It was weird though as its the first time I've been so remote and not found a lot of people to potentially meet or match with. I guess there are a lot more benefits in that sense to living in a city.

Can't wait until I'm back in London!

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
