This video got me thinking (sorry): I haven’t been on a first date with another man in broad daylight in, well, ever. Who does this? The two men above, apparently. (I also haven’t been on a date–in daytime or nighttime–with someone who was actually single since last November, but that is another story.) (I also haven’t been on a date with someone who was actually single that didn’t include alcohol since last June, but that is also another story.) The men above met over the internet, through Gay.com, and while I’ve never “dated” a man from the internet, I did “have sex” with one that I met on the internet, from Twitter.com. That would be embarrassing if the sex were bad. It wasn’t. “Where did you meet?” someone will ask the couple in the YouTube video 50 years from now. “The internet,” they’ll say. “Congratulations! What did/do you have in common?” “We like to pole dance; Britney. Also, we’re gay. After all, we met on Gay.com.”
Is this how people meet and “fall in love”? Am I doing it wrong? Why can’t I go on a date without being drunk, in the day, with someone who isn’t “in an open relationship” or “estranged” or “cheating on his boyfriend”? Or, is this just how people like this meet and fall in love? Because if this is just how people like this meet (honestly, look/listen at/to them!)…phew.
