“…before you take it away.”
I heard this line as I was watching one of the first few episodes of “Heroes.” It caught my attention not because I identified with it, rather because I want to identify with it. The character who said the line just came out of a relationship, and she’s talking to someone who has just professed love to her.
People who have religiously followed MGG would have surmised that I just came out of a relationship (November 2006). I’ve been trying to enjoy single life since then, and while several have hovered around, none has in fact captured my focused attention. Truth is, paranoia has started to creep in… perhaps I will never ever meet anyone again who will “take my breath away” — and I get to think, are my standards too high? Am I expecting too much from my potential partner? Should I be more realistic and settle for whoever just comes by, that at a minimum catches my attention?
Migs is a pretty idealistic kind of guy. And so if I let myself answer the questions I just posed, my answer would be the predictable “no!” I will tell myself to just wait and enjoy single life… meet new friends, spend time with things that matter to me, etcetera, hoping that someday somehow the right guy will come along. These really make sense, and I want to do all that. But then again, the paranoia continues, will the right one really just magically come along? Will I ever meet that someone who will “take my breath away”?
What do you suggest, dear MGG readers, to those single gay guys who, like Migs, are going through such phase?
