Simple, Starving to be Safe

25. ABC. Political junkie. Retired science nerd. Traveler. I live for good food, my friends, and boba milk tea. Figuring out myself and what I really want from life, while at the same time trying to find that someone with "a smile that could light up this whole town"

"Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something."

ox-85: hmmm... tell us a story about the most illegal thing you've done. :P

I haven’t really ever done anything seriously illegal. I’m definitely a serial offender of jay walking and speeding. Haha!

Oh! I just remembered something. I had some leftovers from EDC. They may or may not have made their way into my check-in luggage in bottle of vitamin C tablets…

unduplicated: Okay, here you go. How's everything?

My life in general is good I guess. Summer is over, so my work schedule is more relaxed. I’ve been going to the gym on a regular basis and eating a lot more calories thanks to protein shakes.

The only thing I’m lacking in life now is a good core group of gay friends. I have a solid group of straight friends, but I only have one close gay friend. I’ve been trying to meet more people but sadly the pool of gay, down to earth, easy going, English speakers in Taipei isn’t very large. Trying to stay positive and optimistic though.

"We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past. The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings."

My posts as of late have been more on the not so positive side. My life does in fact have its good moments! I figured I’d post something happy.

1. If he doesn’t answer, don’t keep sending texts. If he wanted to talk to you, he would’ve responded.

2. People will make time for you when they care about you. If he says he’s too busy or constantly cancels his plans, he doesn’t care. People fight for you when they care.

3. Don’t let him touch you on the first date. If he tries, he’s not there for the same reasons you are.

4. You can tell a lot about a person by their favorite book.

5. If he can stomach more than ten straight shots without feeling a thing, he drinks too much.

6. Ask the uncomfortable things. When was the last time he was so high he couldn’t speak? What does he regret the most? Does he drink to remember or to forget?

7. Don’t send pictures unless you want to. If he has to talk you into it, don’t do it. If you hesitate, don’t do it. If you do take a picture, don’t include your face. Keep yourself safe.

8. If you can’t laugh when you’re having sex with him, maybe you aren’t sleeping with the right person. Sex isn’t about tricks and tips and routines.

9. If he hurts you, cut him out. He’s gone, he isn’t coming back, and you don’t need to prolong the pain.

10. Don’t be afraid to open up again. I promise not everyone will love you with a knife behind their back.
