Today I'll answer Buddy Bear's questions:
Q: What can you tell us about your best friend that you've had the longest time?
A: Out of my graduating class of 30 there were about half that had gone all the way from kindergarten through our senior year together. I still keep in contact with about 3 of them, all are dear friends. One in particular shares my love of renaissance history and reading.
Q: Do you know any Mormon friends/acquaintances back in Utah who you suspect are married and closeted?
A: I know of two friends that are closeted. Utah has many married closeted men! I try not to speculate about my friends, I don't want to think like some gay men and interpret friendship as something other than that. If someone is friendly I don't think that the guy is secretly "into me". I may have an inkling, but I'll just leave it at that. There are many shades of gray between the black and white of gay and straight. One slight shade away from black (or white) does not make a guy gay.
Q: Were you ever secretly infatuated with a guy when you were a teenager? Can you tell us about it?
A: Not really. I was teased in junior high and high school about being gay. Because of this I was very aware of who I looked sideways at, I could not afford to be caught ogling anyone, although I still probably did. If there was a hint of something I was bullied even more. I might have checked things out in the locker room, but never had a crush on someone who would ever pick on me! A few weeks ago I talked about a crush I had on a teacher. I also had a crush on two of the coaches too.
Q: Does anyone in your workplace know about you blog?
A: A few coworkers know about my blog. A few read (past tense) it for a while. I don't hide the fact that I write a blog, but I certainly don't advertise it either.
Q: Do you like to cuddle?
A: Yes! Very much so!
