The closet

    I joined this site because I think it is hard to find athletic, masculine gay and bi men. I'm divorced and still pretty new to everything, but I know what kind of guy I like. My problem is that I'm not ready to be open in my business. I wish it were different, but I am at a high level in a medium-sized business, and the other owners "don't like the gays."

    I think it's ok to keep my sexuality private. It does, however, make it difficult to meet quality men. On this website, for example, I can't upload private photos without uploading a public photo of myself. I know there are sites where I can be totally private, but there is lower quality guys, not the level of the guys here.

    I wish I could be the next corporate example of masculine gay men, but that is just not my reality. My company is not that big. The gay rights movement is remarkable in that large private companies are leading the way. When the guys in the NFL, MLB, etc. who we all know (wish) are gay come out, I might be able to do it in a small business.

    Who one here is in a similar situation?

    I'm new here and looking forward to meeting everyone.

    Every Saturday while watching college football in the local bar, I used to wonder if anyone else in the bar liked guys too. After perusing the profiles on this site, I'm pretty sure I wasn't alone.

    I know I sound like a whiney bitch. I'm sorry for that--I am far from that. There are men on here who know what I am talking about.

    Sometimes, when a man reaches a high level of professional achievment, he is not willing to give that up. When you have spent 15 years building a business, you can't just "get another job." My fault for putting myself in this situation. Let's also blame the soldierswho are now trying to figure out how to be gay and also an a officer in the new army.

    So, given my past faults, does anyone have any advice?

    As a business owner myself, I understand where you are. There's always a balance that you have to maintain. Yes, I've lost a few clients who didn't agree with my lifestyle, but for most of them it really didn't matter. icon_wink.gif
