I'm new to the community; I just thought I would say a brief hello and pose a question. What is your idea of a perfect first date/romantic evening? Where would you and your beloved go? What would you do together? If time, money, responsibilities and obligations were not a factor, what would your ideal date be like?

thoughts on craigslist 
12:17am 28/12/2009
  as of late i've been looking through posts on craigslist in the misc. romance section. a few peek my interests, but it seems rather unfulfilling. you don't seem to get straight answers from the guys on there or they are just as picky as the ads for anonymous sex. i've posted my own ad once, but got nothing but guys who just wanted to screw around with a guy who wasn't as slutty.

to think, i'm in san francisco, too.

i'm a rather private person, and don't deal well approaching someone interesting or someone i'm attracted to on the streets, in the public. it just seems like i fear the person is not gay or bi and may be upset or angry by the compliment/gesture. plus it spotlights me....

what's a guy like me to do?

  with all of us here being self-described romantics, I'm wondering how much importance you guys put on a guy's physical looks?

also! I'm new here. =) the name's Andrew.

A thought experiment... the strategy of let's get tested TOGETHER BEFORE we have sex.

  A thought experiment...

A phenomenon going on without being observed by public health officials. The strategy of let's get tested TOGETHER BEFORE we have sex for A VARIETY of sexually transmitted diseases. Here are a few exchanges of ideas about the strategy http://community.livejournal.com/gay_sex_tips/500292.html

Just a question...

mood: lonely
I got stood up today. It seems I'm always getting stood up by idiot men.

I don't get it. I'm nice, I'm told I'm funny, I'm reasonably attractive (I'm told)....why is it that guys only want to have sex and then leave? And why is it that some of them never even bother to meet you at all??

I get so tired of not having someone to cuddle with, someone to be with. I'm a very romantic person, and that SUCKS, because nobody else I meet ever is. Or, they SAY they are and it turns out they're lying. Lately, the prospects seem so grim, and it's making me lose hope. That's why I'm glad this community exists, even though I never see anyone post in it. Which leads me to my question....

Doesn't anybody ever DATE anymore? And if they do, WHERE ARE THEY???

  Hello why is the community so dead?  Did everyone just decide to give up on the love crap and resort to massive slutiness?

mood: anxious
So I'm 24, rapidly approaching 25, and I've never had a boyfriend. As a hopeless romantic, it bothers me because I want someone to love. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do to meet guys. Online venues aren't conducive unless you're looking for something that I'm not. I'm way too shy for the bars, plus I always had the deer-in-the-headlight look there. And there aren't that many (if any) social groups here. I'm saving money to move away from here (Kentucky), but in the meantime, I'm sick of being single. Plus, I'm worried that I'll meet guys who will think "You're 24 and have never been in a relationship? Is there something wrong with you?" Will my lack of relationship and dating experience (I haven't even dated that much, my last date being two years ago) hurt me in finding someone?

I know it's supposed to happen when you least expect it, but I'm NOT expecting it. It'd just be nice to finally fall in love and find the man of my dreams.

I don't know if introduction posts are allowed. So if not please delete this. But seeing how there has been little activity in this community for a few months, I figured why not? My name's Andrew. I'm sixteen and currently living in Kentucky. I'm gay and romantic. Thus, I'm here! :D I adore this community already.

  Yesterday I was in a great rage because I saw for the first time one of the horrible Fred Phelps's propaganda videos. It filled me with anger, and shock, and contempt, and sadness.

But then, i've found this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sfln-GJ2D6E&search=Fred%20Phelps&watch2
and i kept crying for nearly an hour. It's a very moving video, very well made, very true. And it made me want to DO something, even if just a little something.
So this is it: watch it and tell me what you think. The message I want to bring is: your are not alone.

  12. Like It Or Not

You can call me a sinner
But you can't call me a saint
Celebrate me for who I am
Dislike me for what I ain't
Put me up on a pedestal
Or drag me down in the dirt
Sticks and stones will break my bones
But your names will never hurt

I'll be the garden, you'll be the snake
All of my fruit is yours to take
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow

This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I'm never gonna stop, no no

Cleopatra had her way
Matahari too
Whether they were good or bad
Is strictly up to you

Life is a paradox
And it doesn't make much sense
Can it be filled without the router?
Please don't take offense

Don't let the fruit rot under the vine
Fill up your cup and let's drink the wine
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow

This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I'm never gonna stop, no no, you know
This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I'm never gonna stop, no no, you know

No no, you know
No no, you know
No no, you know
No no, you know

I'll be the garden, you'll be the snake
All of my fruit is yours to take
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow

This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I'm never gonna stop, no no, you know
This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I'm never gonna stop, no no, you know

No no, you know
No no, you know
No no, you know
No no, you know

The Five-Date Rule 
01:14pm 26/03/2006
mood: relaxed
So as a way of introducing myself to the group, I thought I'd write about a discussion I had this morning with a gay guy who just got dumped by his "boyfriend" - mind you, they'd only been going out for a couple weeks, having rampant sex all over the place, and then the other guy just "lost interest".

I told my friend that I had a "Five-Date Rule" where I don't put out until after the fifth date - and then I might still not have sex with the guy if it doesn't feel right. But at the bare minimum, the first five dates are totally without sex. A good-night kiss is about as far as I'll go!

He said "this is the most ludicrous thing I've ever heard... how can you control your hormones?" I found that to be quite a bizarre comment. He seemed to feel that men are totally controlled by their sex drive, and when he sees a hot guy, he just has to have sex with him.

Anyhow, he didn't seem to get what I was trying to communicate - that in my mind, there are more important things in life than sex! Especially when you're meeting someone and exploring if they're potential dating/boyfriend material - why not give it a chance to get off the ground before you introduce sex into the equation? Besides - I've found my "Five-Date Rule" to be a very handy way to get rid of the guys who are interested in ONLY sex.

Sadly, the vast majority of guys don't make it to the fifth date. But, I like it as an effective screening tool.

So, do any of you have a similar rule?

How about some of your favourite quotes? 
02:00pm 22/01/2006
mood: melancholy
In no particular order...

"Love is when you shed a tear and still want him, it's when he ignores you and you still love him, it's when he loves another but you still smile and say I'm happy for you, when all you really want to do is cry."

"In love, it is better to know and be disappointed, than to not know and always wonder."

"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief ... and unspeakable love."

"It takes a minute to have a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone. But it takes a lifetime to forget someone."

"Everyone hears what you say. Friends listen to what you say. Best friends listen to what you don`t say."

"To the world you may be one person,but to one person you may be the world"

"The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you can't have them."

"Don't be reckless with other people's hearts, and don't put up with people who are reckless with yours."

"The supreme happiness in life is the conviction that we are loved."

"If I could give you one gift, my friend, I'd give you the gift to see yourself as others see you, so you could see how special you really are."

"There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams
and hug them for real!"

This one from a personal website I came across some time ago. I don't know whose website it was so I hope they don't mind me reproducing it here. Let me know if it's an issue :-) It's just beautifully written. You can feel the pain huh?

"I will wait for you, for a time, so I can know for sure if you are searching for me as I am for you, and hope that should you have left me behind, I rekindle quickly from the smarting realisation, I am alone, adrift once more"

  Alright, be forewarned that this post may be more to rant and vent moreso than actually attract advice.

With that out of the way I will begin.  I have a friend a friend, and well, I have a big crush/infatuation on him, and I cannot get it out of my system.  I guess it would be understood better if I explained the history between us.

Hi there.... 
01:45am 20/12/2005
  Hi there, my name is Brad and I am a junior Economics major at Berry College in Georgia. Honestly, I am not your typical gay man. I am a Libertarian and conservative in a lot of matters; I am big into Finance and stock investing; I am a geek of all trades, math, science, computers, anime, and computer games; I don't identify with the whole bar, clubbing, and partying scenes which seem so popular among some of my gay friends... Really the only things which make me gay are the fact that I get along great with girls, I have a pretty good sense of fashion (don't let me loose in Hollister with a credit card :P), and of course that I like other guys. :)

What brings me here? Well I seem to have different ideas about sexa nd relationships than a lot of people my age apparently. In the words of an older LJ friend, I am "20 going on 40". I don't believe in "hook-ups", "one night stands", or open relationships. I believe in love (real love), and monagamous, committed relationships. I feel that that sex, while really pleasurable, is an extremely intimate bond between tow persons, and thus it should only be done in the presence of a relationship, third date at the earliest. Not necessarily right now, but someday I want to find and settle down with Mr. Right, and honestly start a family (kids, house in the suburbs, and all the rest; plus between my sister and myself, I got the maternal instinct). In the mean time I would like to meet people, date a little, and maybe get into a couple of long term relationships. Of course I am finding that this whole plan is a lot easier said then done. Well I should probably wrap this up, as I need to get in bed. If you have any questions for me, feel free to ask in a comment, and lemme see if I can find a good picture of myself for this post.
