Has anyone else ever dated a feminine/metrosexual kind of guy? I met a guy from online dating last week for drinks.
It can be a tough pill to swallow at times, but I appreciate your no-nonsense advice.
Mc Avoy does a fantastic job adopting the various personas Kevin is forced to live with – but I found myself squirming at the audience’s reaction to one of Kevin’s personalities. Every time Mc Avoy started to camp it up on screen, the audience – mostly men – would erupt with laughter. This was no Kenneth Williams run-around; Mc Avoy was playing the personality seriously, not for laughs.
Yet the people around me saw it naturally as a punchline.
I feel like an awful person saying this because he really is so nice and I really need and want a nice guy.
He replies to texts and phone calls promptly and I saw him last night again for drinks.
Here’s the trouble: While femininity can be dangerous for gay men, it is somewhat expected of them—a form of behavior or mode of self-presentation they are “allowed.” For bi guys like me, even a little femininity threatens to erase our entire identity. Both the straight and LGBTQ community regularly speculate on the veracity of my sexuality.I’m bisexual, and though I’ve never once identified as gay (not even when I came out as a teenager 10 years ago), that label is an assumption I face regularly—especially from those who’ve known me when I’ve been dating men.That I don’t mind playing up my femme side from time to time doesn’t help either.However, I was with my ex-girlfriend, and as we passionately made our bodies and lips into one on the dancefloor, it wasn’t my look that was turning people’s heads.It was the juxtaposition of my femme presentation with the clear fact that I was getting hot and heavy with a woman.
