I still get...

Jealous. Well jealousy in general. Its a beast that needs to be tamed sometimes. Feeling jealous of someone because you feel they are better than you isn't a good feeling to have. I try to forego this emotion, but jealousy always rears its ugly head.

Let me set the scene. Me and my friend V are at the club. A gay club to be precise. Since coming out to V he has taken it upon himself to induct me into the gay world, promising me tips and tricks to pull. So far I have realised that he has the same insecurities as me and the same hang ups so there isn't much learning going on. Anyway, V is good looking. He is tall, slim and tattoo'ed. Guys seem to like this. Every time we are out together he will get hit on. Now initially this didn't bother me. Like I have said in previous posts everyone has a type and people that they find attractive. So i just stand there whilst he dismisses these guys as he is in a relationship.

But it gets me thinking. Why doesn't anyone ever hit on me? Like seriously. Do I repel people? I would like to think that  am slightly above average in looks, but I guess not. Clearly I am not what guys are looking for. Well at least the guys that go to G-A-Y. Maybe my crowd is somewhere else? Maybe I don't give off the vibe that allows people to feel comfortable talking to me. Or maybe I am too stunning and they are lost for words (even I am laughing at that one lol).

It could be something deeper than that. I have read articles and peoples blogs about racism in the gay scene, and that how Asian men are not seen as attractive by the masses. Racism does still exist in this world, case in point the new president of the states (god help us all), and this could be plausible. But you would think given that I am in London that there would be one person out there kind enough to hit on me.

Part of it is that I don't know how to flirt in real life. Give a WhatsApp and I will be the most charming person in the world, but face to face I would be dorky and uncool. I am working on this though. The other part is that I thought Mr LA was the love of my life and that I didn't want to find anyone else as this would be cheating on him. Sadly I was mistaken and Mr LA didn't see me as boyfriend potential.

Therefore I will actively try to flirt and talk to people. I am already trying this on a daily basis, get out of my comfort zone and gain confidence. It seems to be going well so far. So watch this space, my next entry could be about the first guy to come to me at a club and flirt!

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

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

I could be your private island

 Hi all, It's been a while since I last wrote a post, and to be honest not much has gone on in my world. Except for a pandemic, starting a new job and celebrating one year in the flat. So yeah, not much but also a lot! This year has been crazy, and it doesn't look like it will get any less crazy anytime soon. The pandemic is still rife, and affecting everyone and everything. I truly hope you are all keeping well and trying to maintain social distance with face coverings and hand gels galore. It has affected all walks of life, has made us adapt to a 'new normal' and has forced us to re-think our daily lives in general. One aspect that has affected everyone is travel. Be it local travel on public services, or the all elusive holiday abroad, we have all been affected. Bae has not been able to see his parents since the beginning, and every little sliver of a chance he gets to go back, the rules inevitably change and it becomes harder. I for one am tired of not having a holi
