Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Good Night

Out of nowhere came an SMS from him, a former FB whom I’ve stopped seeing a long time ago. I had forgotten to delete his number in my phone, which was how I was able to identify him.

His message: Sex is more mental & psychological than physical to all gay men. Contrary to popular belief, we don’t necessarily crave and lust over another man’s dick. We crave and lust over the possibility that he will eventually fall for us after having sex… Now think about that! Good evening.

Upon reading it, I automatically typed: “Obviously I didn’t fall for you.”

With my finger about to press the “send” button, I hesitated. Pressed “delete” instead, then switched off my phone before turning in for the night. I think I was smiling when I fell asleep.

The following day I remembered to delete his number from my phonebook.

Actually there is a grain of truth in what he said... There is something mental when we do have sex with someone.

That is in my point of view of course. :)

@MUGEN: I agree with you. But unfortunately for him, I fell within the "popular belief" side, as far as he was concerned.

di mo tinuloy ang pag send. may puso ka.

binura mo ang number nya. siguro wala cyang mukha. o di kaaya-aya ang kanyang hipon nyang pagkatao. pero ung sinabi nya. totoo.

di para sakin.

@XANDER: Nice one! Pero two promos so close to one another is too much. Easy ka lang. =)

@ANTONGALON: I've had sex with him three times, so I can say that he's not a hipon. He does look hapon, though.

I actually could relate to the statement.. though sometimes it was all about getting laid- more often than not I had just wanted the guy I'm sleeping with to still be there weeks, months, or years later. I think by now kasi I've learned I'm the kind of person who values company and genuine friendship and relationship that's based on trust rather than a pretty face to boost your ego or keep you company for a night or two.

All those years of dating and ONS... I really just got into that in hopes of getting a bf. To have the same person to say goodnight to, or celebrate anniversaries with, or be with you when you lose a loved one. But of course the sex has to be good too haha! ; )
