At least someone called you fit, handsome, and successful… I think my mom has called me 1 of those.

It will happen when you least expect, don’t try to control fate. Just live your life, cultivate your friends, travel, keep meeting people, have fun, don’t become an allergic to sex nun, be confident, love yourself and your life. Someone will come along eventually.

It’s really nice to see someone pretty coming forward with some harsh realities about stereotypes some of us have (only made worse by social media) about pretty people being pretty and nothing more and just how wonderful and perfect their lives are. Thanks for being honest and open.

Yep I got that quite a bit during my single days. And also that I was a bit of prude for not hooking up on date one. I'm optimistic that there is always someone out there for any person who wants a relationship. Hope you find him soonish 🙂

I get this too and understand the frustration because it’s not about “getting with” anyone. I try not to let it bother me and take comfort knowing that something will come at some point. I also don’t waste my time with people who aren’t dating material usually, because it’s not about sex and validation for me. Most gay men are working through insecurity and emotional issues, so I would say maturation is slightly delayed, which is why it’s hard to find someone actually seeking a committed relationship.
