Hottie Cub: "Would you be willing to be seen in public with me?"
Buddy Bear: ** hesitates** "Yes, I'd be seen in public with you. But I wouldn't go the movies with you and sit there surrounded by dozens of my students." My gay comfort level is being pushed along here, I think. I haven't yet gone out in public in my own town with another gay guy in a ... sort of.... dating situation.
He's a fantastic kisser, experienced and "open to pretty much anything." I know he will help me expand my sexual repertoire. He loves to cuddle as we hold each other tight..... my kind of a guy! As well, he's very nice with a great deal of perceptiveness and common sense.
We spend a couple of hours together in my own bed.... Such sweetness! Fantastic! Then I heard my son's dirt bike pull into the yard. OMFG! Because of the extreme heat, my son was back from his grass-cutting job at a nearby park three hours early!!
I was quite flustered, but I had to face the inevitable. Hottie Cub and my son had to meet. I wasn't going to make Hottie hide under the bed or climb out the window. We got dressed and went outside. I said to my son, "Hi, _ _ _, this is my friend ...er ... Brian." (In my panic, I had forgotten Hottie's real name.)
My son is nearly 16 and pretty oblivious to social cues, I think, but the expression on his face was priceless. Surprise, followed by deep thought and a narrowing of his eyes (I could practically see the gears turning in his brain) and finally, his "aha!" moment. He said "Hello", smiled, shook Hottie's hand and then excused himself.
Hottie Cub exclaimed: "Oh, my God.... he's so handsome! He's a clone of you!! He looked really surprised when I came out. "
BB: "Well, He already knows I'm gay. I think his sister told him that I'm seeing guys. (see Texting Oops!) I'm sure he knows what we were doing."
Hottie Cub: "Does that bother you?"
BB: "It'll be okay."
Another step forward for all of us....
