After, however, it took me only a few months, and I met a great guy named Mike. But it was the reverse for me. I fell for him, and he kept me at a distance. We did quite a bit more than you and Dave. Then, he transferred to Hawaii. And I, for 'moral' reasons, decided to go straight. ;-)
After the Navy, I met a gal whom I then married. And since we've been married, I did the same thing. Can't share these guy's names, however, but there were four of whom, over the last eighteen years, I developed quite strong emotions for. The last was A. He was like all the others rolled up into one. Beautiful. We were friends for eight years. I think he had some kind of 'urge' toward me, but was afraid to admit it, because of the religious component. I haven't seen or talked to him in three years. He hurt me pretty badly.
I'm afraid of two things: AIDS or other std, and getting 'outed'.
I guess I told you all of this because I felt I needed to reciprocate!
Here's a pic of me. Please don't post it! [unless you cut my head off and take the background personal stuff out of it!]. (I've elected not to post his pic)
I don't even really know why I'm writing, except that I thought I was the only one like me on the planet. I live in HOUSTON for pete's sake, and I've never met like-minded men.
