My Trip Out

Gay married man coming out story

Previous applicants need not apply

I apologize for my emotional outburst yesterday. I assume you read this as a prospective on your own life and perhaps taking some guidance from my own little adventure.

I awoke this morning clutching my pillow normally where TC would be and alas all I got was feathers. To be clear, TC isn’t entirely gone, he’s in Toronto and already has called numerous times to check on me. The issue is there is no set plan for his return. He’s not happy about it, I’m not happy about it and I hope the hell you’re not happy about it.

The issue is IF (and I’m using a big IF), we don’t get back together, well then what? Two people who got on well, but can’t seem to make the logistics works, well boo hoo, get on with it. That’s my Germanic logic application, unfortunately my tender white underside is miserable. Miserable that some new adventure will have to begin and frankly, I’m not looking forward to the voyage. I hope he comes back, please with sugar on top.

Finding a new partner is damn hard. TC, if you’ll remember, was discovered one Sunday morning  at Duesseldorf Aiport Baggage Claim while I was in some sleepless state. Lucky me. I’m not looking forward to the gay scene, bitchy queers, mind games, communicating via text messages, the inevitable “I like you, but you don’t like me”, unreturned phone calls, missed dates and the real art of trying to figure out whether it’s a hook-up or the beginning of something. It ain’t easy for anyone single, but factor in the fruit element and the complexity grows.

Single Guy in the City is coming to DC for Christmas and we’ll get together. Lucky for me, he just broke up with his boyfriend. We’ll have a great time crying in our beer.

image9238 copyI’m a good guy, not bad looking, honest, trust worthy, an excellent cook, knowledgeable on wine, can talk for at least an hour about Balsamic vinegar and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (everyone should, right?), reasonably intelligent (prone to only brief periods of stupidity), quick temper, but fast recovery, find humor in all things, in fact the perfect gift!  So if you’re in need of a house boy, over 70 and willing to set-up a trust fund for me, apply now, operators are standing by.


  1. Keep your hope high, I know it is not easy; but try to think in the next time you will be able to be with TC.
    It is just a matter of time, if there is love in your relationship (and anyone can tell that), you both will get through this; and you´ll keep on with your relationship. Better times will come for you.

    Greetings from Canary Islands, Spain.

  2. Lucky for you he broke up…..hmmm..not happy Jan! LOL

    You are kindda cute for a middle aged guy!
