I ask this now and then. My straight friends say dang you would be a good catch. 5'10", 188, not the body I had at 33 but at 53 I don't look much different. I was huge muscular then more lean now. I am more active than most. Hike, bike, waterski almost every weekend. I am in the gym everyday, I love lifting and have done it for 35 years. Not Arnold but he was definitely an example of what was possible. I look 39, bodywise, but my face says 43. Thanks genetics for that. Since I am 53. All my buddies got married, though most did nothing for Gay Marriage. They could not be bothered to demonstrate or protest. I did. Arrested twice for demonstrating for marriage. I am everyone's best friend. I am godfather to half of my friend's kids. I am the guy you call if you are moving houses or having a dinner party. I am considered handsome though I don't see it. George Clooney mixed with George Costanza. I am well read and witty, not in a gay way, but I can talk with anyone. Spent last weekend with a bunch of truckers. I can speak their language. Can wear a tux and talk Brexit or the fall of the Brazillian economy in depth. My happiest times are on my boat with a mix of folks. I put up with liberals and I tolerate conservatives. I am a realist, not an idealist. But at some point you have to say, why are all my friends getting married and I am not? Part of it is me. I like independence. I like the fact that I can lock my door, jump on my motorcycle, and drive anywhere. I have strong opinions but listen to most anyone and sometimes change my mind. I like kids and pets, but don't want either. I am a better Uncle than Father. I look damn good, have a great job, am very presentable in any situation. Why am I still single?
