    Maybe this should have been a blog, I'm still not sure. :06: It was inspred by this thread.

    As some people here know, I am prone to wake up texting whatever pops into my head, at any hour.

    Anyway I have a good friend who over the course of the last 35 years or so seems only to attract bisexual or gay men. As for me I attract gay men like moths to a flame dame. :tongue: :wink: Don't get me wrong, I love my gays! Any straight man I am with has to know and accept that I have gay friends and they aren't going anywhere. Sometimes I wonder, what it is about me that attracts gay men, yet repels straight men?

    My initial question to my friend is in blue as are my comments. Her response is in purple. I don't know that I agree with all that she said but some of it makes sense.

    Why do you and I attract gay and bisexual men so much? Why can't I attract straight men like that? NJQT466

    Ah, dear, this is blog worthy.

    Being single at your age is hard--one of my best friends divorced at 52, and found what was out there was "the left overs"....

    Being friends with the gay men is a lot better than being alone.

    What makes it blog worthy? The fact I tend to ramble on incessantly or the fact I don't really ask a direct question?

    You want my take, babe? I dunno about the gay / bi man thing but I do know it isn't what you are looking for - so best just enjoy the friendships there for what they are.

    I do have an opinion on the straight man thing - why they might stay away. You have too many rules. You want blue collar with white collar money, you want a white man not a black man, you want a man of a certain age, you want this, you want that etc, etc, etc. The most important thing your friend said was this:
    She is 100% right. You are judging every man you meet by your past experience. You make assumptions about them and, IME, one thing an awful lot of guys will not stand for is being tarred with somebody else's brush.

    I'm not suggesting you disregard everything that has ever happened to you - I just think guys sense that they are being evaluated and it is a turn off.

    *cringes and awaits response* :wink:

    :lmao: I am being open to relationships with everyone and that's what's bugging her and a few other people that know me well. The fact that I relaxed or completely disregarded many of my 'rules' for my current beau seems to be driving some people batshitcrazy. :biggrin1: I find it amusing actually because he makes me happy. It seems my friends think I am settling, could do better, and/or that I should be more particular. :rofl:

    As I told one male friend, the difference between my guy and every other guy I have seen or dated in the past is that he honors me and treats me with respect. He makes me feel like a woman without kissing or touching me. I know that sounds weird but that is what out weighs the smoking, and a few other things which in the past may have been deal breakers for me.

    PA,

    I am so glad to hear that things are going well for you. It sounds like you may be on the right track. I wish you and your friend the best. I am soooo glad you are enjoying him treating you like a lady and not second guessing the way it is manifested. Carry on!

    Why we attract gay men? I don't know. Well they say opposites attract, but I deff attract the men I want... so, hm, it's a good pondering question.

    NJ the reason why I call you Internet Mommy for three reasons.

    1. You are old enough to be my mom.

    2. You remind me of how my mom treats me. Kinda harshly, backhanded. And my mom like you. Hasn't had a man in years. And in her hasnt even tried. (As much as she disdained our father we loved him and werent gonna let someone else be "daddy".

    and not hopefully 3. I feel we're similar and you might be the female version of me in 20 years >_<.

    *hugs NJ*

    I know. I put it there so people would stop asking me A/S/L in chat. It hasn't worked but what the hey. C'est la vie.

    If you start calling me mommy I will spank you and take away your riding privileges for a week.

    Yea my parents divorced. My mom honestly hasn't gone on a date in at least maybe 8-10 years. The one guy she did bring home we scared because my sister and I were still at the age where we thought my Dad was coming back and didn't know what a relationship was much less sex. By the time we realized what was going on I guess my mom had given up and my Dad was already moved in with his girlfriend now his wife and my stepmom

    I hear her sometimes bitching how her friends are married and involved and that she doesnt have anyone to help around the house. I dont try to be nosey if you lived at my house youd know. My mom never goes out unless its for something work related and thats RARE. Me and my sister really dislike our mother. I know this is kind of messed up I feel bad for my mom knowing that she's going to die alone. Her kids hate her. Her sisters are sour on her and honestly If I was any man I wouldnt want to date her with any other reason to golddig. My sister and I have actually asked my dad why did you even date her. Sad but true.

    P, I'm glad to hear that you have a beau that you like and respects you. That's the most important thing. I don't think that you are complicated at all. I do think that you believe that you could always have more from a relationship and in that is where frustration might lie. It's fine to want more, but you have to know that it can be time consuming trying to find it. It a hard thing to find someone when you have preferences without settling for someone to spend your intimate time with.

    I feel you on church not being 'the spot' to find someone, but I know you believe in God and they are some good people there. Faith's a hard thing to follow sometimes because we want things in our time. I'm not even getting into that 'cause you know how it goes. I think what you need is someone as strong-willed and intimidating as you and that might be match made in heaven. So your shyness in real life and your tenacity here just hasn't run across the right one yet. Time is slow for some us while other travel at light speed:wink:

    Ahh if only it was as easy as attracting a man any man you want!
    Nj, we have discussed men being bisexual so I won't lecture you {maybe}
    on the fact that because a man is bisexual it doesn't mean he is a practising bisexual.
    I can speak from personal experience here too. With both of us being bisexual and neither of us having sex with others does'nt mean I will want to go this route always but for now it makes Mr. Ed happy that I don't.
    I do think you have found someone who makes you feel secure in "D."
    I hope that you will be able to work out all those issues you've talked about here.
    Make it work baby!
    cigarbabe:saevil:
    p.s.
    If you want to give an "Ed" a try again have I got one for you! :rolleyes: :eek:

    I should clarify that the only place I attract bi-guys is here. If I have met any IRL they didn't reveal themselves to me and I never picked up on it.

    I'm screaming right along with you. Trust me. Time is the worse. Then not knowing what's going happen tomorrow, that's just more irritation. If we knew exactly when we were going to get what we wanted out of life, we might be more patient. I know I would be.

    You don't intimidate me. I chose to use that word to describe you like that because I'm a man and other men (only speaking from my personal experience) tend to find confident women that know what they want and have no problem stating it as intimidating. That kind of guy is a wuss. What could be simpler than having a woman that knows what she wants? With that in place, a man could really have shit together instead of running around trying to 'create somethint out of nothing' for example, because of what he thinks she might want. This woman might not want the world from him, perhaps just a city or two.
