rangersean: I've been hannging around for a couple weeks now and have felt welcomed, but I thought I might finally put my two cents in as a general introduction. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area (California), and am a biologist and teacher. I basically grew up here, though I've lived around the country. Though I hope to afford my own place, I'm back living with my mom (sigh) and we're good housemates. I've thoroughly enjoyed reading the posts here, am learning a lot (and laughing quite a bit too), and feel I'm really finding a 'home' here where I can talk about anything (I won't, but I feel like I can). I'm 100% gay. I'm not here looking for partners. I find attracting sexual partners is not at all difficult (you'll never guess why). I'm definately tired of quickies and one-night stands. And in my ten years + on the internet have been offered more than my share of plane tickets, and have even had people try to plan their vacations around getting at my cock. (BIG sigh). So far I've managed to avoid them all. Much much more important to me are friends (of any orientation or gender) that I can talk to, and that can talk to me. That's some basics. Thanks for listening.
