    So Im at the local gay bar at the after party.. guy says to me

    "yeah, I saw you at the opera 6 months ago, my bf and I thought you were wierd" ...

    mind you they just saw me, never talked to me, so I ask him

    "really? how did you get that impression?"

    says he:

    "you seem less complicated than everyone else here"

    ROFL! I dont know what to think... it seems like a compliment, since the island gay scene here is like that... like a huge gay Latino soap opera gone wrong lol .... but maybe he was just calling me "easy" which for the island scene is NOT a compliment lol icon_rolleyes.gif

    no wonder I always date foreigners, lol icon_razz.gif
    Mind you, both of the couple of bf's started hitting on me the moment they broke up lol

    Maybe he meant weird as in artsy type, you look different, not mainstream, so maybe that's what he meant, and I don't think that's an insult.

    hmmm. it seems they are defining weird as: "you are so much outside our limited and narrow perception of what it means to be gay, since you are your own person with a strong but comfortable sense of self, imbued with a sense of artistry we can only dream of, and a cosmopolitan perspective far beyond our ken, that we don't know how to process it because we lack these qualities we seemingly mock you for but actually desire for our selves."

    maybe you should wear a scarlet "W" on your chest, just so the other boys know. people need help from time to time.

    have a great day babe. icon_biggrin.gif

    Weird...i.e. being different, not normal, not average, not like everyone else...is a HUGE compliment in my book. Take it as a compliment and be authentic to who you are. Embrace that which is different...sounds like you already do.

    I think you give off a mysterious vibe. It was a compliment.

    I get called weird all of the time and I take it as a compliment. I'd prefer to be quirky and different than status quo ;). People tend to appreciate weird.

    Take it as a compliment. The dude was probably envious because we call could use a life less complicated.

    Sit, my child.... sit down and sip your cocoa and let me translate it for you...

    Statement: "We saw you and we both thought you were weird"

    Translation: "I am stupid. I have very few words in my... voca... vocabu..... storehouse of words. We both thought you were exotic and insanely sexy, but we know you willl never be attracted to us because we are self-loathing. I think I will call you a fucked name and reject YOU since I already know that at some point you will reject me... because I am self-loathing and falsely confident. Wait! You are calling me on it? To explain? You understand that I am an organism? I'm a REAL BOY!!! Well, then I will temper my rejection in case you want to pity fuck me. Wow!! This is so exciting!!! When I dump Mr. GuyIamWithThisWeek I will totally try to get with you!!"

    Voila..... done!

    I got called 'weird' cuz I don't turn on lights in my house at night.
    Hello.
    I don't have curtains & I can see just fine in the dark.
    ...plus the neighbors would see me looking out with my binoculars.

    'Weird' is so much more attractive than mainstream, trendy, and expected.

    I'd rather be called weird, than being called a drama queen.

    Nothing wrong with being weird. It's cool, different and usually a good thing. Take it as a complement.

    weird in that way means a good thing.

    like you're not the typical complicated person that they're used to.

    Why do people have to make things so constipated?

    I mean complicated.

    beau,

    you're hella weird. it's why you are one of the few people i call "friend". (okay. okay. okay. i call you a lot of different things, but you know what i mean. i "less than three" you beau, although that whole "black socks with tightie whities" thing really pushes the envelope for me).

    boooooooooyyyyyeaaaahhhhhhh.

    But "weird," "eccentric," and "geeky," etc. make the day so much more interesting...

    I get told I'm can be weird...As opposed to what..Being conventional?!

    The only thing conventional about me is that I just want an attractive guy to compliment me when I'm with him.....

    Yea I'm weird.....

    I hope suddenly started experiencing a twitch in your left arm and letting loose high-pitched yeeps and yelps.

    Though in actuality his comments seems rather dull and harmless.
