Oh the dog days of summer... June

With June being Gay Pride month all the boys were out in full force here in Denver.

June left me with no doubt one of the weirdest dating relationships I have ever had. (Names have been changed to protect the guilty!) My best friend Randy and I have a weekly ritual for outings with one another since we both work so hard... Thursday nights at Charlie's and Sunday afternoons at the Denver Wrangler for the beer bust. Several months ago Randy and I met a group of four friends in the backroom of the Wrangler and we ended up picking one for each of us. While that night just turned into some making out with the hot bois we remained casual friends speaking at the bar. As time progressed one of the other boys in the group and I starting paying more attention to one another talking outside the bar. After several weeks I took matters into my own hands and ask him out to which he quickly said yes.

Over the next several weeks we talked daily and went on several dates. Finally the weekend we wait all year for arrives, Gay Pride. We have lots of plans... Babylon @ Tracks on Friday, shopping and bar-b-ques on Saturday, Pride Parade and the Wrangler on Sunday, and Gay Day at Six Flag Elitch Garden's on Monday. My new boy and I have it all planned out with our friends. After several weeks of dating my new boy tells Randy he wants me to be his offical boyfriend while at Babylon on Friday, so I ask him to be my boyfriend and to be in a relationship with me, after all now I know thats what he wants and I like him that much also.

Things are going wonderful, we have a great weekend and we couldn't be happier together, or so we think. When Monday rolls around we go to Six Flags and are having a wonderful time when his flighty gay friend shows up to hang out with us. The day was over from there. He ignored me once his friend from the friendly skies showed up and the tension continued to grow as everyone in our group saw something was wrong. After winding the day down it was time for a heart to heart. Apparently the relationship he wanted on Friday he no longer wanted on Monday. What?! He asked for it, I gave it to him, I showed him the weekend of his life paying for everything, he didnt have to ask for a thing and now he was done with me???

Needless to say I really liked my new teacher boy and he had just used me and kicked me aside when he was done. Ofcourse we had the "I just want to be friends talk..." but anyone who has ever had that converstaion knows its CRAP! You want to be friends - an easy statement to make to someone whom you just used and hurt... What makes you think I want to be friends? And am I really suppose to be your friends knowing that everytime I see you I will know I had/have feelings for you and want you?

I spent a few days upset over the situation and then dusted myself off, bought some new clothes, and back on the market I went. Someone call the realtor, this real estate is back on the market!
