Single Perks - I Love the Movies!


One of my favorite things in the world is seeing someone's astonished face when I reveal that I love going to the movies alone.  Many people enjoy doing that, so I don't know what's astonishing about it, but I delight in their horror of even considering doing something like that alone.

I find it quite peaceful and enjoyable, sitting in a movie theater with no one at either side and no one trying to finish a conversation during the previews.  It also may be due to some trauma I experienced in my collage years when I was enjoying HOWARD'S END at the Fountain Theatre in Mesilla, New Mexico.

In those days, my home town of El Paso, Texas was not much an art house cinema haven, so there were many films we had to drive 45 minutes away, into another state, to see.  HOWARD'S END was one of them.  I was enjoying the movie very much (Not so much THE INHERITANCE on Broadway, based on this book) when it became very clear that two of the five of us were not enjoying the movie.  One of them actually went to the back of the house and took a snooze on the sofa by the snacks!  I spent the last half of the movie worrying that my friends were not having a good time.  Imagine how much more I would have enjoyed the movie if they weren't there.

Not much longer, two more friends and I went to see MILLER'S CROSSING on campus at the Student Union (Fortunately, the Union Programs Office was another source for artsy films).
Again, half way through this Coen Brothers movie, my two companions were making it very clear that they were not having a good time.  Their constant, very audible, sighs and obvious shifting in their seats was driving me nuts!  I, too, was having my patience tested by this particular Coen Brothers outing, but it was so hard to get into the movie and immerse myself in the world of gangsters with these two acting like they were on their third homily in a very special Sunday mass.  This time I was less worried for their amusement and more annoyed by their insistence that everyone around them know that they were bored and must suffer along with them. "NAY," I say, "NAY!"

Sure I've had great times seeing movies with groups of friends...
(...like when we went to see GODZILLA
and got photo-bombed by director Gareth Edwards & friend!)
But I find it much easier to enjoy myself, when I'm by myself.

To prove I'm not just some weirdo with a blog, HERE'S scientific proof, by way of Kayleigh Dray of STYLIST, that going to the movies alone is actually good for you!

Going to a movie and not worrying about anyone else but the shirtless guy on screen... Them's the perks!

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!




ENJOY!
