Welcome to my journal. I use this place to make posts about things that are going on in my life. I'm involved in an open relationship, and much of what I write here is about the things I feel about that subject. I use the journal largely for hashing stuff out so that I can get my ideas in order and help myself to deal with issues I have with relationships, sex, and sexuality.
The title of the journal is "coming out as a heterosexual." This is a reference to a post I made in which I realize that sex and sexuality are very important to my personality, but I have felt pressure all my life to avoid letting on that I am interested in sex in order to avoid being perceived as creepy or lecherous. I was "in the closet" for a long time, and I have almost missed my chances at really great relationships with people I now love dearly because I was so careful about making people feel comfortable that I came across as uninterested in them sexually. I am now attempting to learn how to be open about being a sexual person without crossing the line into creepy. This journal is, in part, a chronicle of that.
I put most of my posts, but not all of them, under the friends filter. I will usually add people as a friend if I recognize them from communities I'm in, or if they are friends of friends, but if you're not either of those and you want to be added, just leave a message here explaining why you do.
The things I post here are not usually sexually explicit, but if you're not comfortable hearing a guy talk frankly about his private life, you'll probably dislike reading my stuff.
Thanks for visiting!
