And a very Happy Valentine's to you as well Joshua! Going out with my baby later on tonite.
It's such a contrast. I post here and on a gay men's forum and right now there are at least 4 Valentines threads going on over there. Gay couples wishing everyone a happy Valentine's, singles feigning to be angry over not having a Valentines and all kinds of other funny and touching Valentine's Day comments, you see a real joy and fun spirit over there. Here it's still discussing whether libertarians sleep on box spring beds to "where's the best place to hide a knife?" from a week ago. Thank GOD I'm a gay man.
Cisco, the foundation of gay culture is the same-sex romantic relationship, right? Therefore V-day is a big deal, as it celebrates relationships based upon romantic love.
AOM is a very different place. As an outsider to it's culture I don't get it either, but I do enjoy observing men in their native, virtual environment, something I don't get in my real life, except for the occasional eavesdropped conversation at the gym.
Happy V-Day to you.
Valentines Day is for opposite-sex romantic relationships too if I'm not mistaken. Enjoy yourself Carl, you deserve it.
I suppose it'd be worrisome if there wasn't a contrast.
Valentine's is celebrated with the wife and kids ... not with everybody everywhere. I thought that was the point.
Would it kill you to respond to someone who's wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day with at least saying; "My girlfriend/wife and I wish you a Happy Valentines Day?" Or tell of your plans with said girlfriend/wife like Carl did? And no Jack, gay men are not aliens in comparison to straight men, as much as you would like to believe it.
I'm not calling myself an alien, I'm pointing out how jack see's gay men, here and in other posting on these other forums. He sees me as so alien and so Foreign from himself that I might as well be an alien from space.
This 'bitch with a chip on your shoulder' bit is getting tired Shieldes. try a new line, it was cute the first few times you said it, now?...
I promise anyone who posts here, you won't come off as any less of a man if you do.
The issue, is, you think you matter. Guacamole, I hate tomato-based anything.
I though commies love everything red. I'm a white sauce loving anarchist...with Jesus in my heart...
Cisco, you seem like you're putting us down.
you see a real joy and fun spirit over there. Here it's still discussing whether libertarians sleep on box spring beds to "where's the best place to hide a knife?" from a week ago. Thank GOD I'm a gay man.
Would it kill you to have a conversation without trying to pick a fight? Nobody gives a damn that you're gay. You'd be more interesting if you were capable of talking about something else, though.
As for the "alien" thing -- you're the one that drew a contrast, not me. I just agreed. Don't proclaim how thankful you are for the differences ... and then have a bitchfit when I'm fine with it.
To be honest, I didn't know it was even necessary to wish anybody but the wife and kids a Happy Valentine's Day. I can't think of the last time I said it to anybody else. Its a couples' holiday, not a public one.
We're celebrating this weekend rather than tonight.
Just got flowers for each and every one of my ladies, and on the way home will buy gin and meat.
Doesn't get any better than that.
