KT is a 29-year-old Dabawenyo MGG reader who contemplates about growing old and lonely. We shall all grow old, that’s for sure, but being happy or lonely is totally our decision. Read the following excerpt from his letter, and his interesting plan when he turns 35.
When I was younger, I was never serious about my relationships. I just know that they come and go. With this kind of lifestyle, I gathered that it is too easy to find sex yet it is so difficult to sustain a meaningful relationship. At 29, I feel (it is) even more difficult to find that “ideal” relationship. Since I’ve gained weight, it is even doubly harder for me. I realized that the attraction among gay/bisexual is too much dependent on the physical aspect. It seems everyone wants to have a trophy boyfriend and all that crap. I’ve also given up hooking with younger men because I know they’re just exploring, like what I did when I was younger.
And here’s his plan…
This is why I am giving myself a deadline at 35. If nothing happens, I will have to find a wife and raise kids like normal guys do. I think that it would be better to suppress that desire for males than to be in relationships that’s not secure. I am afraid to grow old lonely… I even cringe at the thought of being that old gay “sugar daddy” of young guys, just to get their love and affection. What do you think?
Yes dears, what do you think? Do share your thoughts with our letter sender from Davao, KT.
