    It is important to me that people authentically be themselves.

    I think you might offend a few with that term. :frown1:

    For me, I think I know what you're referring to, and yes, I do prefer guys who are not flambouyant or real feminine. However, I also don't care for real "macho" or overly butch.

    Most of all, I just want them genuine and compassionate. :smile:

    This.

    I don't want my boyfriend to be "acting" at all. If he has to be putting on an act, he ain't gonna be happy.

    Like CG said before me: Genuine and compassionate.

    No acting desired - just be your true self. But if your true self is feminine or flamboyant, then my true self will not be attracted to you.

    I think that it is repulsive when gay men refer to themselves as "straight acting".
    How straight does a man look with a dick in his mouth or up his ass?

    Bingo.
    That's what i crave.
    Three votes for no acting...do i hear a fourth?
    And there ya go. The four of you have hit the nail on the head. Yes we all have preferences as to who we are drawn to, but I think most of us have awider range then would be assumed, and we'd rather habe our partners be themselves then some weird parody of wh they really are in a misguided attempt to please others.

    I'm more concerned that his snoring (music to my ears) is developing into a case of medically compromising sleep apnea.

    But there are times when he's completely off his Latin macho muscle bear guard and he'll throw his hands in the air and squeal as if he's just sold 1,000 boxes of girl scout cookies. I find that equally charming.

    However, I could not wish for a person who is more authentic, truthful, and caring. He makes my life a pretty nice place.
