I joined Myspace...

and already connected to my buddies from college. I went ahead and made the big step of adding a gay friend to my list of friends. the reason this is a big step is because he lists himself as gay on his profile. so for me I guess that's one small shuffle forward from against the back wall of my closet, right?..... anyway, no big deal really 'cause most of my college buddies either know or have figured it out about me and wouldn't care. I guess I'm wondering what my family might think ( although they're pretty much unaware of mypage) and also if any of my class of students that graduated last year might track me down on there. The pretty lame thing, was the message I sent to my gay bud, T, after adding him as a friend, basically asking not to OUT me with any comment he might leave on there. The gay friend I'm talking about is my buddy T in Austin who is coming ot the lake with me for a weekend in late August. I found his myspace page and got all excited that his calendar said he'd be in OKC in a couple weeks....man I hope he gets the chance to stop by my place. He's the last guy I ever messed with and that's been since memorial weekend. yup, I've been a good boy this summer, staying offline at home and no locker room cruising . went through that stage a couple summers ago already.
I guess overall, I have to say that having an openly gay shouldnt' really make anyone immediately assume I'm gay, and yes str8 guys have gay friends right? of course they do, but not many, mainly 'casues I think gay guys sometimes don't bother keeping them or making any. Sure, no problem for a girl to have all the gay friends she wants, its cool and all that, but for a guy, of course everyone assumes, well why else is he associating with the other team.... hmm. Too bad. this might sound stupid, but I like to hope that if I were completely 100% straight I'd be openly friends to anyone no matter of gay or str8... but obviously I'll never know that one for sure, would I....
(ps if I've emailed you, you can search it on mypage if you want to check out my nerdy profile on there)
Summer is here guys, get outdoors and off the computer this weekend! later.

aww I want to see it!!

I just put "straight" on myspace profile even though I got people in my friend list who actually know that I bat for the other team too. But I put straight because my other (straight) friends in my friends list who don't know.

Do what ever you want to do Mate. Just dont hurt any of your friends in the process which I'm sure you wouldnt do. I think telling your gay friend not to out you is a good thing, at least he knows why you may not act the same online as you do in person.
