GAGFI?

I have already said that I would be 100% ok with my son being homosexual so hopefully that gives you an indication as to where I stand on the LBGTQ community as a whole. Annddd here is where I get hypocritical. You know when someone says “I’m not racist, but…” and you immediately know that the next words out of their mouth are going to be filled with some of the most racist crap that you have ever heard? Well, I promise that this won’t be that bad. But, at the same time, I really feel the need to preempt this rant by saying that I am not a homophobe, but…

I’ve come to the realization that I am in fact a GAGFI. I really don’t understand how, but, here I am… Wait, I should probably explain that one. A “GAGFI” is someone who Gives A Gay First Impression. Yup, apparently that’s me. What brought this up? Well, I was talking to a girl online. And by “talking” I mean that we exchanged maybe four messages at first, then went silent. The other day I started the conversation back up and she told me that we weren’t interested in the same things. Like I said, her and I had barely spoken, so how would she know what I was interested in? She then followed it up by saying “unless things have changed and you’re now bisexual”.

Um. Her and I never spoke about my sexuality, however, I do have “Ladies only please” in my profile. I think that I’ve told you before that I completely suck at online dating right? Like, I rarely ever go on the sites let alone start conversations… She initiated the initial conversation with me. So what this means is that she messaged me – either assuming or hoping that I was bi – before reading my profile. Then read it and figured that I wasn’t what she was looking for. This isn’t actually all that upsetting. What is upsetting is that this reminded me of the fact that on this site I have been approached by more men than women. And she is not the first woman to either hint at or flat out ask if I were willing to engage in activities with her and another man. On top of that, I’ve had a little more than a handful of women meet me in real life and assume that I wasn’t straight.

I’m not sure if it’s something about my profile or if the site is a notorious “down low” site, but like I said, I’ve been hit on by more guys than gals on MeetMe (only a slight exaggeration). MeetMe is the app that the pictures below came from. An actual conversation with some random guy on MeetMe. Before you scroll down and look at it, let me say that no, this is not how most of my interactions have gone on MeetMe. Usually after a guy messages me I just say “did you read my profile?” and he goes away. But this was too crazy for me not to post, in a post.

Now, I’m not upset at being hit on or approached by dudes (kinda take it as a compliment), but as I said before, I’ve had women question my sexuality as well. Granted, every time this has happened the woman has ended up hitting on me once they found out that I was straight, but you gotta think that there’s something to this. Right? Funny (random) story, the last first kiss that I had was a much older woman who forcefully kissed me as her way of testing the waters to see if I was straight”… She was hideous, But her reasoning was the same that I’ve heard before. I never bring women with me to my watering hole, and I never hit on women when I’m there.

Ok, this has gotten a little lengthy, and I didn’t really get to cover all of the points that I wanted to make. I guess I’ll have to do a follow-up post on this. Basically not that there is anything wrong with being homosexual, and not that this happens to me all that often, but it has happened enough (especially on MeetMe) by both men and women that I have to question, how am I a GAGFI?

 

Until next time, no means NO.

P.S. Did you know that you could make slideshows on here!? My blog is about to get a lot more interesting! Anyhoo, yes, I understand that saying “this is the reason homophobes exist” was probably not the best thing that I could say at the time… But I don’t completely apologize for it. No one likes having to consistently turn down the advances of someone that they are not interested in. And actions like this could potentially turn a person off of being interested in a type of person (because of sex, race, religion, hobby, anything really) if you feel like this undesired trait is the rule and not the exception… You know what I mean, don’t judge me!

P.P.S. I honestly still have no idea whether it should be “P.P.S” or “P.S.S”. I mean, it’s a post post-statement, but it is also a post statement statement… Anyhoo, that ladies and gentlemen is two guys sharing a French Kiss. An ex of mine strongly suggested that I take this picture off of my Facebook because it “gives the wrong impression”. I responded by getting two more buddies to take an even better (or worse?) picture which I will probably use in another post.

  2. Gagfi…. There is a word for that, huh? I have met a few men that I thought on first impression were gay and they weren’t. They are slightly feminine men. Or they are proper. Or care a lot about their appearance
