This may be my most revealing post to date - a lot of stuff going on inside me right now.

I have been chatting with a guy from here for a couple weeks. I'm not sure who contacted who first, but I started interacting with him because he seems to be someone who is sexually compatible with me.

Side note: I think most regular visitors to my blog, know that I "label" myself bisexual. I have dated women, although it has been a long time since I have been in a dating relationship. I have never "dated" a man, although I have met a couple of men for sex on a regular basis. If I'm honest with myself (and with you), I'd have to say that I'm gay with bi-tendencies. End of side note.

I have interacted with quite a few men on this site, and have met a few. Typically they are guys that are married or divorced. All of my encounters have been with men and women who have attachments that preclude any relationship beyond our occasional encounters.

So, this guy has completely captured my imagination. We are getting together for dinner tonight. I don't know whether to call it a date or not, but it sure feels like one.

It kind of weirds me out. All of our sex talk has been hot, but I find myself going other places in my head (the big one with the brain, which does work sometimes) and heart. I find myself wondering about what a "more than sexual" relationship would be like with a dude, and this one in particular.

I have no issues with being attracted to men. I know I have been all my life (I remember my first crush on a guy as clear as day - 33 years ago). I am open with my family and friends about my bisexuality. I'm not worried about what anyone would think about my being in a relationship with a guy, and I don't think it would negatively affect any of those relationships.

Wow, I am way over-thinking this! I just need to pull back, have a good time at dinner and let things evolve as they may.

If you've gotten this far, thanks! I appreciate your time.

Life can sure get complicated when we start trying to figure out what we want and where we want to go can't it. Just do what makes you happy!

You're right. You ARE overthinking it. Just take it easy and don't get your hopes up too high. It's too early to have high hopes. You don't even know the guy yet.

def agree with 5er on that one. Always take your time with new people. I get that way too, I meet someone and get all excited and go head first full throttle. Then, when things have ended in utter disaster, Im left wondering what the hell happened lol.

Thanks for stopping by, and for commenting. There is someting gratifying about the fact that three straight dudes have commented on this post.

It's my opinion that what I am experiencing is a "universal" experience, even though (for me) it involves another dude.

So, tell me. How was dinner? Did you really overthink the whole situation or are you continuing the dating thing???

Just curious. I am so excited for people that truly find a match that might take it beyond just another sexual encounter relationship.

Dinner was great - good conversation - felt like I was hanging out with a friend. We continue to talk. Don't know where things will go, but he's a great guy! Best of all, I'm not overthinking it!

Thanks for stopping by!
