1. I should specify that this whole identity-forsaking saga thing, while not easily pinned to a particular instant in time, took place roughly two years before I fell in love with Mr. DM. Otherwise, readers might think, “Well duh! Of course your gay identity took a hit, because you fell for a guy!” But it didn’t work that way at all. While I wrestled with these issues, I was not aware of any significant bisexual potential. I fully expected to live and die single, celibate, and totally same-sex attracted. Renouncing gay identity with that sort of life outlook seems to me a very different matter than suddenly falling in love in a way you hadn’t quite planned for.

So interesting that now we have met, now I hear your humor in your posts.
Uh, for those who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting me, and therefore may not be hearing the (evidently inadequately conveyed) humor in my posts…it may help enhance your DM experience if you realize that I don’t take myself all that seriously. Granted, I’m no comedian, and this blog isn’t meant to be slapstick hilarious anyway. But you should know that when I write this stuff, most of the time I have a wryly amused smile on my face.
