I am 53 and an out gay father from BC, Canada. My wife found out I was gay six years ago; much drama ensued but we achieved a reasonably non-adversarial divorce. Woo-hoo! I now try to balance my new sex and social life with family, career and LGBTQ social activism. I am mainly living on my own because my three adult kids are now making their way in the world. I now am an LTR having met my soulmate and am embarking on the most exciting phase of my journey so far!
Recently I was out with my kids and ran into a young man who had been my client for a couple of years. I hadn't seen him in about five years.
He was about 23 and had been on a football scholarship at a US college. He was the most gorgeous physical specimen; amazing ass, brilliant blue eyes, muscular, shaved head with a pretty face.
Although he was a very masculine'football jock' and indeed, had a girlfriend when I knew him years ago, I constantly wondered if he had an interest in guys. He had always been locking eyes with me and seemed to have an intensity about him whenever we spoke. If he was gay (and I'm not at all sure that he was), then I'm sure that he sensed my latent gayness as well. All the gay boys (or those who were probably gay) always seemed to figure me out.
We chatted for a minute about his football career and I complimented him on his weight gain (he'd been a skinny kid.) He confirmed it was needed for football. He then flashed a beautiful smile and said to me, "You look hot!" *
There was a long pause with his brilliant blue eyes still locked on me; I didn't know what to say, Gosh, he's a former client!!!..... hmmmm..... while he waited for my reaction. I said "Thank you......... but why are you telling me this?" I then said I had to go and practically ran away. My kids waiting for me; that was my excuse.
I know he was dead serious but wondered why he told me that. Looking back, I think he was just being flirtatious. Another possibility is that he was one of those straight boys who likes to tease, who likes to get gay guys all hot and bothered.
I am accustomed to receiving the occasional compliments in my real life, but this one was a first!! The first I've received since I've admitted I was gay and from a hot, very young man. It freaked me out a bit (okay, a lot); first, he was a former client ** and second, he was less than half my age. I'm older than his parents, for Pete's sake!
* I was wearing a tight black T and black skinny jeans with my coolest shoes. I think I did look pretty darn hot, for a middle-aged guy.
** fraternizing with former clients is allowed only if the client is an adult and one full year has passed since the client relationship ended.
