(Updated August 31, 2013) Chances are, I would enjoy chatting with you, so please say hi. If you're nearby and would enjoy doing something outdoors before summer is entirely over, definitely say hi. Now please forgive me while I go on a little rant. I won't be long.
---- BEGIN RANT ---- Like virtually everyone else on this site with an opinion, I hated the update, and especially the numerous bugs that lingered for months. As I have seen some gradual progress, I felt I should modify my complaints to at least reflect what has been corrected.
First of all...THANK YOU GAY.COM for finally giving me paragraphs!
Now, if you'd only add a few more things, I'd find the new system truly usable. (1) Make the online green dots consistent and universal. Let me look at my custom lists (a nice addition) and know who is online. (2) Quit telling me that I have an "Incoming Chat Message" when in fact it's one I sent myself. I think I am aware that I sent it. You don't need to remind me. (3) Break chat out into its own window like it used to be. You may think flyout windows are cool, but trust me, they are a pain to actually use. (4) Is it too much to ask that you give us an incoming message beep again as an option? The old system was kind enough to sit quietly in the background while I went about my other tasks and then let me know when something important happened. I miss that. (5) Can we please have contact notes again? Pretty please? (6) Chat history is nice, but could we perhaps have it not be backwards? ---- END RANT ----
As for me, I am at heart a romantic. I believe in friendship and love and I am looking for people who are "real". I have been on this site for many years and have encountered far too many guys who are pretenders and are not serious about making any sort of connection (except, perhaps, sexual). I want to know who you really are, learn about your interests and passions, and find that you are someone who means more to me than just words on a screen.
Now, I'll chat with just about anyone, so please say hi (assuming they ever get the messaging system to function).
Ask me about:
Oh, I don't know...maybe you should ask me about something I've said elsewhere in this lengthy profile. You could also ask why I now despise the phrase "I'm and open book." Or you could ask me for my Yahoo or Skype ID so we can actually chat.
Kinds of guys I'm looking for:
As noted above, I have always sought guys who believe in friendship, honesty, compassion, and love. I hope to find someone who wants to be more than just a chat buddy. As a rule, the friends I've had have been younger, but that's not a requirement. If you can hold a decent conversation, have at least a mildly adventurous spirit, and possibly share an interest or two of mine, then that's a good start. I'm generally rather shy, so please don't hesitate to say hi. If you send me a friend request, though, it would be nice if we had at least chatted first. I'm not sure how one can be friends with a stranger.
