First of all, I’m gay. I’m on Grindr and Scruff a lot. They are gay dating apps. Some say gay hookup apps. Also Tinder, but it’s not as effective. Well, neither are Grindr or Scruff. Right, the point is, I’m gay. Apparently I have a doppelganger and he works at a gay spa.
Quite frequently I get a message from someone on one of those apps and we’ll talk for a few minutes. Then they’ll mention they saw me out and they’ll say they thought I was cute. I’ll get very excited and start to wonder where they saw me at. But then they say they saw me at this gay spa here in Louisville.
I’m familiar with the place because everyone told me about it. People tell me it is a place where gay guys go to hook up. I’ve never been there. I’m not knocking it, it’s just not my thing. I’d rather secretly crush on someone for a few years, confess my undying love for them, and get turned down, like always.
Sometimes I’ll mention that I don’t go there because I’m not into hooking up with strangers, at least not like that. They’ll say, “Nope, this place isn’t actually like that.” Then they’ll try to get me to come back where they’re at in the spa.
Anyway, these guys won’t believe me when I tell them that it wasn’t me. They think I’m lying. They’ll swear up and down that it was me. Sometimes the conversations turn into really stupid fights because of it. These guys always get the last word, and it’s usually something like, “Okay, whatever, dude. I know it was you.”
All I want to know is, who is this guy? And does he really look like me? Is he younger or older? Is he cute?
I’ve thought about going to this gay spa to see if I can find him, but then I’ll lose my only real good defense in these situations: being able to say I’ve never been there.
By the way, I wrote this really quick Thursday night before bed on top of my clean clothes because I really wanted to post a blog every day this week. I DID IT! I blogged every day for a week while working full-time and going to grad school. It is possible. They might not have all been the greatest blog posts in the world, but I did it. I’d like to keep this going as long as I can. I’m afraid if I stop I’ll lose momentum. That’s what happened to my YouTube channel. Ever since grad school, I just haven’t been able to figure out a new way to make YouTube videos.
Also, my roommate snapped this picture of me while I was writing this blog post. He was playing with the new anime Snapchat filter. I’m pretty sure that anime filter got my lazy eye matched perfectly, which is super interesting.
Do you hook-up? Most gay guys tell me they do. I’m the “weird one”. It’s fine. You do you, man. Leave me a comment and let me know some of your weird Grindr and gay app dating stories. You can also contact me via my contact page, follow me on Twitter, and like my page on Facebook.
