I met a boy

    I am posting this here, not expecting any replies, but if I get some, that's cool. icon_cool.gif I just want to put this out into the universe.

    I met a boy.

    I can't believe that I would ever say this. It seems like so long, maybe a decade, when I met someone that makes me feel this way.

    I met a boy! And it's heaven and hell and chocolate and rotten eggs and puppy fur and tire puncture spikes.

    I went to a gay yoga class three weeks ago, since my friend invited me. I was pretty reluctant because typically gay men gatherings are kind of trollish. But I went with a positive attitude.
    It was really damn hot this particular evening. Before class even started I was sweating, and the water jug was empty. I went to the front desk and asked them if they had any more water. I hear a "you can have some of my water!" and I turn around to see the cutest, most adorable, smiling face looking at me.
    Of course, I replied, "Thanks!" and took a swig (yes, I waterfalled it).

    So the class ends, and this guy turns out being a friend of my friend, and a big group of us go out for Taco Tuesdays in the gayborhood. I'm sitting outside talking to the new people I meet, and he and my friend walk up and I scoot aside, and this guy ends up sitting right next to me.

    Throughout the night, I look over at him, he looks back at me, we smile, he looks down (I think he's kind of shy which makes it even more exciting). I was in pure heaven just being there next to him.

    I end up going back to the yoga class the next Tuesday. He's there again and I'm noticing he's wearing bright pink tiger print spandex yoga pants, which normally I wouldn't find too attractive but on him they are smoking HOT. I say to myself that he was wearing them just for me icon_wink.gif

    So we all go out again to Taco Tuesday and he sits diagonally from me. A cute guy comes up to him and touches him. I get kind of jealous. Dammit.. why do I have to be going through this NOW?? I'm not ready for it! icon_confused.gif

    After tacos we go to a piano bar. He ends up singing Jeff Buckley, Hallelujah, one of my all time favorite songs, and he has the whole thing memorized. I sing Imagine by John Lennon.
    I talked with him a bit at the bar, and found out that he was a rower in college and coaches crew for high school kids. Such a turn on for me!
    There is a group of probably 10 of us at this time. Then I tell my friend I want to go dancing across the street. He agrees and we end up going, and cute boy ends up being one of only four of us that decides to go out dancing. Again, I tell myself he's doing it because of me.

    We have an awesome time dancing all night and watching the ladyboy drag shows. I get close to him and dance with him a bit, but then back off.. I don't want to be too clingy. There's a fine dance to this game we call life.


    Then, when I was driving home, I had my iPhone playing through my car on shuffle. I have over 3,000 songs, and guess what song pops up? Hallelujah.

    Well, he ends up doing a triathlon this past Saturday with my friend, and they decide to celebrate that night. My friend invites me, and cute boy is there, in all his deliciousness and irresistibility. When I see him at the restaurant, he raises his hand up and then puts it down, saying "I was going to slap your ass!" I told him "I would like that, and I'm not wearing any underwear" (I really wasn't!)

    So we're out at dinner, six of us, talking, and I am getting to know these people, who are really cool and I'm so happy that I met them befriending them. Then four of us end up going out dancing and drinking. It was a lot of fun. But, again, I don't allow myself to get too close to him. I flirt with other guys, but I always come back to the group, and look over at him and give him a smile, and then he looks at me, smiles, and looks down.

    I think about him all the time. I praise God for bringing him into my life, under such amazing circumstances. This wasn't an adam4adam or grindr thing. This was REAL. And I haven't even kissed him yet. But I have real, deep feelings and adoration for him. I am so excited to see him and get to know him more. But, I'm not letting myself get too close. I guess when the time is right I will know? But maybe he is not even that into me. But maybe he is. And I can't wait to see what happens, and I'm really enjoying this journey!

    I stopped reading at "Taco Tuesdays".


    Mmmmmm! Tacos!

    Seriously, enjoy exploring the friendship and possibly more with your friend.

    Consider changing how you think of him regarding the use of the term "boy". If you're going to have even a glimmer of hope of a "relationship of equals" then thinking of him as a "man" is key.

    Buena suerte!

    Your story is really cute, I find it even more cute that you think he looks really good in bright pink tiger print spandex yoga pants, haha. You know you like someone if you can get past that, and then some.

    I do yoga all the time, and I have to say yoga is where its at.

    Cool story. Just give it some more time, and do just what you're doing. You're handling it right. Time will tell. You're not ever going to spoil it all by saying the "L" word or anything like that - I'm sure of it. What will you do next? Ask him to dinner? Or maybe ask him to go for a hike in the hills with you? Seems like you've done a good bit of hanging with other friends, so now it is time for a real date, I'm thinking.

    As far as Yoga - I've done it for many years - and sometimes in a nude class (for men only). You get a great work out / clothed or naked!

    Let us know how this plays out. Best of luck!

    Thanks guys! It is very exciting. So much change going on in my life right now, it's like a whirlwind, and then this on top of it, I can't even keep up. But, I have learned from the past, and I am going to take it very sloooowwwwly.

    I have given some thought to a first date, but, the fear of rejection keeps winning. Maybe some advice about how I could approach the subject?

    It makes it even more complicated because my friend, who introduced me to the yoga thing, and who is friends with cute MAN, admitted to me Saturday that he has a little crush on him.. oh the tangled web of testosterone!

    he's probably just waiting for your braces to come off and then you 2 girls can kiss.
    sounds like a whole lotta drama, BS and gamesicon_idea.gif


    A decade?? A decade??? I wonder why? No I don't.

    Seriously, if you want to live in 14 yr old girl world you will NEVER find a man and man relationship that lastsicon_idea.gif

    Ok it's time to go in for the kill. You've been keeping your distance long enough. You don't want him to start thinking you aren't interested. icon_wink.gif

    I'm going to see him on Tuesday.. Which would make it about 10 days since I last saw him. The problem is I can never get him alone to ask him, we are always in a big group. I could ask my friend for his number, but like I said, he told me he has a crush on him, so, I don't think that would be a good idea... Should I just wait until I see him next week?

    How encouraging to read your euphoric post, and nice to hear that you are actually happy (I seem to remember a lot of depressing posts in the past.) Like Anocxu and bizman said, it's time to ask him out. Just have some planned possible dates for the next time you see him and find some way to get to him at least a few feet away from the group. Nothing ventured . . .

    A 30 y/o meets a "boy" (sketchy much?) while prancing and dancing and yoga-ing and flirting and Taco Tuesday-ing around the gayborhood. The juvenile superficiality of it all. icon_lol.gif But hey, it's not hurting anybody. Good luck with your next fling, man! Can't wait to hear the drama of the inevitable break-up, after a few weeks/months, in the same excruciating detail! icon_twisted.gif
