I'm walking back to my car from lunch. I got some yogurt ice cream and Godiva chocolates. I'm resisting the urge to skip and hop. Heheheheh
I would consider myself lucky. Perhaps not on the dating/relationship front (more on that later), but definitely in health, money, and work. I have good health; perhaps not the most fit, but nothing ill. I have enough money to be happy; not a millionare by far, but I have the freedom to travel without wondering how I'm going to buy food in a couple of weeks. Lastly, I have the occasional freelance project coming down the pipe; it may not be the equivalent of a full time job, but it will stretch out my money and make ends meet.
Yeah, I'm happy with who I am right now.
In my last entry I noted that I would talk more about the dating aspect of my life in another entry. This is that entry.
In The Past
I haven't been on a date with anyone new in quite a while. It's not entirely for a lack of trying, although that is part of it. Mostly it is a lack of selection and lack of anyone interested in seeing what might happen. I've also been very restricted in approaching anyone around me who I can't be sure is or isn't gay (oh, the age old situation still occurring; That will be changing fairly soon, though).
On my OkCupid profile I've removed the "Long-term dating" selection. I wouldn't turn down one with the right if it presented itself, though.
The main reason why I removed the selection from my profile is because it's not what I'm primarily looking for right now. I'm looking for casual, enjoyable while it lasts, fun, intelligent, and intimate relations.
It is also not very feasible right now. As I ready to travel around the country it would be hard to start anything with the expectation of making it last for long. I also have no idea where I'll end up once I do settle down again, so the other person would have to follow where I go or try to find something where they are.
So now I'm going to look for people who are okay with here and now, enjoying the moment while it lasts, then letting it go and going on with their own lives. It will be interesting to see what becomes of this.
Well. That was interesting. I almost got involved in audience participation in Zumanity, I think. One of the cast members came up to me while another performance was on and asked if I was there by myself, etc etc etc, confirmed my sexuality, and moved me to a seat much closer to the front. He said he was going to hook me up tonight.
But nothing happened. End of show.
I'm not surprised. At the beginning of the show when the hostess asked where all her gay boys were only half a dozen voices were heard (including mine and a couple near the front).
I wonder if I should go back and see if I misunderstood something? ... probably not. *sigh*
