This Is Why I Am Single - Words With Fish

As a Dying Alone, one of my favorite pastimes is playing Words With Friends with friends.
Sometimes I play Words With Friends with friends' friends.
And I've actually met people through this game, like Dan from Melbourne, who's my friend Dennis Hensley's friend.
We played the word game for a year or so, then I met him in Melbourne when I went to Australia.  We had a great time!  ...Except a few hours after I ate a glutenful bun at Huxtabuger...
It wasn't their fault. We went there specifically because they had gluten friendly buns, but in the excitement and gabbing I forgot to order the bun... It's a messy story you really don't need to read about.  The point is, I met Dan on Words With Friends, then I flew across the world and met him in person.  If you would like to see other delicious Australian men I met/saw in Australia, click here.

All that is to say that I'm open to meeting new people, even on a game platform.
Cut to me seeing I have a message from a new opponent named John W Nicholson.  He was a very friendly Military man who was playing with me all the way from Saudi Arabia!  Somehow he figured I was gay and confessed to being gay, himself, which isn't easy in the Military.
Of course, the first thing I did was look him up on the Facebooks.  He had a page.  Then, I Googled him and he popped up right away.  I read his story.  I thought this had a slight chance of being real.  One of the things that kept me in was that his English was exceptionally good.  I conversed with him as I would any single gay guy in the Military.

The second set of texts confirmed my suspicions.  He got too friendly too fast, hoping to prey on my Dying Alone loneliness.  I decided to have fun and continue with this Catfish game... and the Words With Friends 'cause I was winning.  (Disclaimer: I'm one to talk about grammar & spelling, please excuse my errors in texting - I have fat, impatient fingers) (Also, if you're having trouble reading the texts, click the pic and it'll enlarge)

 His English skills also plummeted, so I figured this was a team;  someone well spoken to get 'em on the hook and another to keep 'em on until it's time to reel them in. Anyway, I decided to find out, once and for all what his deal was, so I began to tease.

I wanted him to know I am frivolous with this newly won money!

I liked that he didn't seem to mind that I totally ignored his texts that gave away his game too soon.

 I was really having a fun time.

Then I turned into that girl in Kill Bill,
O-Ren Ishii: You didn't think it was gonna be that easy, did you?

That damn Wikipedia page!!

I was amazed that he thought that there was still a chance for this visit to happen.
So why not give a little more hope?

Then, I got bored and deleted him.

It's interesting to me that people fall for these "too good to be true" connections so often.
Can't people tell right away that the compliments and kind words are not real?
Who pops out of the blue to tell you they like you??
Or are some of these guys real?

I thought the This Is Why I Am Single was because the only guys who hit me up are fake guys, but it might actually be...
This Is Why I Am Single; I'm immediately suspicious of anyone who shows interest in me.
I'm totally right about this one, but I have probably scared off a few guys who were actually into me because I refused to believe it was real.  Actually, I think there's a good chunk of my friends I made work hard for the friendship because I found it difficult to believe that they really liked me and valued my friendship.  Wow, THIS is the big reveal for me- not that this Gay Military Guy is a Catfisher, but that I could be scaring away the all wrong fish!

That's just awful.

Well, apparently I have some work to do on myself, so I'll leave you with this...

Real John William Nicholson Jr, if you're reading this and you're really gay, hit me up.  I think you're cute.

Gay of A Certain Age - The Falcon and the Go Man

Happy new Decade, Folks!!
I know many of you are anxiously waiting to find out if I got a calendar without dead porn stars in it, so here's the news... I flipped every page of my HOT HOUSE 2019 Calendar without seeing one dead porn star!  I was very excited.  I was also slightly disappointed that Austin Wolf's month photo was a rear view, with most of his delicious frontage turned away from my craving eyes.  Sure, he’s got a nice tush, but I would so enjoy a 30 day gander at his furry pecs.

 (Sure, he was on the cover, but that’s mightily inconvenient to flip every day to for just a loving glance.)

I am pleased to announce that my favorite of the year was Mr. December, Sean Maygers, of whom I had never heard.
  I checked out a bit of his reel and, based on the photo, was pleasantly surprised by his luscious deep voice.  I also enjoyed his hard work. Thank you HOT HOUSE!

So, here’s to another year, hoping to happily flip through the months without being struck by the boner killing face of a recycled dead porn star. (Like I saw consistently in COLT MEN Calendars)
This year I went with THE MEN OF FALCON based on the cover photo, their great history and the fact that I had only 4 or 5 choices!
It’s getting crazy hard to find a nice porn star boner calendar these days!  A lot of the fun bookstores have closed down and Barnes & Noble must have them hidden somewhere away from the
Don’t Fuck With Cats, Dog Shaming  and those gross exploitative SPORTS ILLUSTRATED girlie calendars.

It’s not easy choosing these from Amazon, which is what I did, because they give you very little to go on and it makes me so reluctant to try a brand I’m not familiar with. I need a little bit of a sample to make sure the images are clear, well lit and tasteful.  And real classy, you know?
'Cause, as a Gay of A Certain Age, if you gotta watch time fly by, it might as well be with classy  view of a porn star's boner!

Speaking of classy, I also posed for the BEST IN DRAG SHOW 2020 Calendar

and if you like your porn stars tastefully (and strategically) posed with some drag on the side, you should definitely get your Calendar HERE.

Tell 'em Reba Areba Sent you!

Merry Christmas 2019!!

This Christmas, I am in El Paso with family and friends, celebrating the holidays and life!
I am not alone this season, but for those of you who are, find that light in you and enjoy yourself! Take yourself out for a fancy dinner.  Even for those who don't mind spending holidays alone, it can be tricky not wallowing in loneliness, so, at the very least get yourself out of the house, for a coffee maybe and read a book or the newspaper (all 5 pages) in public.  Even if you're not with them, being around people can help.  If you insist on staying in, please masturbate.   That's always good for cheering me up! 

This one is always a treat so enjoy Marcus.
Enjoy the holidays!
Enjoy yourself!

Gay of A Certain Age - Not this Year, Stupid Tree!

Gentle reader, as you may recall, several past Christmases have ended the same way; me, listening to post-Christmas Chris Isaak, sipping prosecco from a cute little glass and falling into a weeping heap of alone, flailing because I realized no one saw my tree.  "Not this year," I say!!   I have outsmarted my elusive tree, that I swear points with all its branches and laughs at me when I open that front door and am alone; no friend, no neighbor, no desperate guy who wants to be touched by ANYONE with a pulse. Just me.  This year I took an event, well, the only event I have that brings people into my home every year, CRAFT NIGHT, and made it a Pop Up Christmas Card Crafting Adventure!

Here's the very necessary Disclaimer: Sorry you weren't invited!
The guest list was very small and consisted of a few Craft Night Originals and other people who have recently had me in their home. When what very little was said was done, I had 7 guests altogether who could make it and that was the perfect amount.  I wanted to get back to basics and actually sit & talk & craft with everybody, rather than playing host and making sure everyone was alright with food, drink, snacks and parking permits.  And that's what happened.  Also, now at least 7 people have seen my Christmas tree!
And now, so have you!

It was a nice small, but lively group and we crafted and laughed and caught up and created some really fun cards.

Take a look at some cards!

And some of mine...

This may be my favorite creation this year.
Love Connie
is such a treat!

Of Course, there were some Naughty ones you can see HERE

I really appreciate my friends, especially the ones with eyes who have bared witness to my Christmas Tree.  ...And since I'm showing of my tree, here are some favorite ornaments

I got this one at Pornaments.com!
Would my tree be the tree of a Gay of a Certain Age without it?

I thought it would be fun to get us each a coordinating Merman ornament as a gift.
(except Steven; I couldn't find one with a crown of thorns!)
I got them from December Diamonds on Amazon

Shannon Van Pelt

Why, yes, that is a MEAN GIRLS THE MUSICAL ornament!
Would my tree be the tree of a Gay of a Certain Age without it?

So, aside from going to Disneyland, you can find other scary ornaments at Horrornaments

As a Gay of A Certain Age, I know that when I put up a Christmas tree each year, that I do it to make myself happy and cheerful whether anybody sees it or not.  I also knows it's super nice when people do see it, so it's a great excuse to invite people into my home to see it!
