BY WOMEN! Seriously. What the hell is going on here? Not that it isn't a little flattering and all but why ONLY women?
Can I just get hit on by a guy once? Is that too much to ask?
This also goes for all my straight girl friends telling me, "If you were straight I would date you," or, even worse, "Why do you have to be gay?" What the hell? I might slap the next bitch that asks me that.
Uhhh, I was made that way, sorry. And you really aren't making it any easier to be gay by illustrating that if I were straight I would probably already be hitched (because it's actually legal to).
Last weekend I went out with some friends; dinner, some other crap, and then a gay club. There was a friend of a friend (a gay guy) who showed up, and he was pretty cute. We didn't get to talk much during dinner but the damn woman sitting next to me (a complete stranger not with our party) couldn't stop making physical contact and flirting with me. As she got up to leave she put a hand on my shoulder to get my attention, announced her departure, and lingered waiting for me to make a movie. When I didn't and only offered a polite "goodbye" and a smile, she made her way out of the restaurant. The dude, I don't know if he rreally even noticed I was there.
Now I realize that I am not the first thing one would think of as every gay guys wet dream (the guy above is more on par), and as such I understand that I am not going to get hit on by every gay man I come across. However, it might be nice to have one or two show some interest. It has taken years of hard work to just be able to get to the point where I can allow myself to be open to flirting, dating, hooking up, etc.
Now I just need a guy to make a move. Lord knows I won't be the one to do it.
