I do not have any NUDE pictures! My private picture is just my verification picture, so don't even ask. Logan HeMan | Create Your Badge I have the POWER!
My story, yes, we all have one, but how and where to begin?
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness"...Oh, wait, wrong story! Let's try that again.
It's a brand new year! It's a new day and a new beginning. I'm trying to make new friends and see where life takes me. I'm hoping that by joining RealJock I can accomplish not only my fitness goals but also make some real, lifelong friendships.
I returned to school as an adult because I was tired of working mindless jobs. I wanted a career, but I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, and I still don’t. I love learning, love knowledge, in general, and I love to talk and share ideas, I guess I should become a teacher or a professor. I received my AA in Biochemistry & Philosophy and my BA in Psychology & Philosophy. Needless to say, I love school. I am a professional student, and eventually, I want to either teach at the university level or work in academia.
Education is extremely crucial to me. I don't mean schooling, per se, but keeping up with the latest breakthroughs in science, current affairs, and so forth is really important to me. I don't want anyone to think of me as being an intellectual snob, but for me, an education is really important. This doesn't mean that I expect my friends or significant other to be highly educated because I really don't. Because of reasons I won't go into here (very religious upbringing), I was not allowed to pursue the normal educational route that many young people traversed after high school. Since I have matured and have grown as a person, I find it important to continue learning. Again, I don't project that desire onto my friends or significant others. As long as you have some intelligence and can keep a conversation going, then I'm happy.
I also have a deep passion for working out and trying to stay healthy. I love to work out and keep physically fit. I feel so good when I work out for an hour or two everyday. Who needs to take recreational drugs to feel high when you can work out for an hour and feel great? Working out is my drug, and it keeps me mentally and physically fit. I can't even start my day unless I do something which involves physical activity (uh-hum!).
Oh, yea, as if you can't tell from my photos, I love and have tattoos. Yes, they are so addicting. All of my tattoos, which so far are the ones you see in the photos, are of Eastern deity figures (i.e., the god Shiva, the goddess Kali, along with the Kali Yantra and the Om). It's a long story, but after I left my very religious family, I wanted to run away to India and become a Yogi (I know it was a crazy idea--but, hey, that's me!). I was very much into Yoga, meditation, and the New Age movement at the time (a really long story). FYI, I'm no longer involved with any religious ideologies, creeds, or dogmas, unless it's for an academic curiosity, of course. Let's just say I've had a very interesting life.
I tend to be a mild introvert with some extrovert qualities. I am a hopeless romantic, and I wear my heart on my sleeve, so emotional honesty and openness is really important to me. If I like you, I won’t shy away from telling you how I feel, which turns some off. If I don't know you, I will more than likely not talk to you; however, once I get to know you, you won't be able to keep me quiet, either. This makes me come across rude because I don't engage in conversation with people I don't know. This is probably one of the biggest psychological hang-ups that I have -- that is, I have a deep fear of being rejected, so I will reject people before they even have the chance to reject me. I'm sure many of us in the gay community do the exact same thing because we are accustomed to being rejected daily by family members, the religious community, and the world in general. I know I have had my share of rejection by my parents, my church, people that I have liked and the world. It's not easy being gay in a heterosexist world, especially when you're not about to live in the closet.
I have so much I can talk about, and I could quite literally write a book about my life and the experiences that I have undergone (can’t we all, though) but I will save it for a later time. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me. I promise I won't bite you, unless that is what you're into.

Guys I'm Looking To Meet
I don't want someone who is perfect, just someone who is real with flaws and insecurities like the rest of us, and someone who will not pack up and abandon me when things get a little rough. Someone with a big heart to match mine would also be nice. Big heart, sexy smile and a hot body isn't too much to ask for, right? LOL... That may never exist!
I hate it when guys point out their own self-proclaimed hotness. Come on, just because you think you're hot, doesn't mean that we think you're hot. What I consider hot would probably turn a lot of guys off, and what other guys consider hot would probably turn me off. With that being stated, I know a lot of you think cockiness and self-assurance is sexy, but I don't. A guy that is humble, intelligent and sexy is the hottest thing around, but of course, that is just my opinion.
Anyway, I really want to make friends and, if something happens, so be it. I really try not to discriminate based on age because it's just down right meaningless to do so. I can befriend anyone of any age. I don't care if you're 18, 25, 35, 55, or 95. If we can connect on a mental, emotional, and spiritual (doesn't mean "religious") level, then we should be able to have a good time. Same goes for ethnic status and race, which I already discussed above, but I could care less if you are white, black, yellow, red, green, or blue. However, I would be quite intrigued by you if you were blue or green, just saying.
Well, if you've made it this far, then you must either (1) like what you're reading, or (2) you're really bored and have nothing better to do with your time. If it happens to be number one, then let's be friends, and if it happens to be number two, then get something to do and let's still be friends.
