I am updating my profile. I recently turned 69 years of age. I posted new pics on my profile. I have not been active in the gay community, in anyway, for a number of years, at least 5. I retired three years ago. I was very active and openly public in all areas of my life starting in 1973. I fought for justice, acceptance equality for gay people and for other minority communities. I started as a young college guy. I never envisioned the possibility of gay marriage. My intent was fair and equal treatment. I feel that my work, and the work of so many others who are now my age, brought us to the major changes that are happening today. We are bruised and battle scared, but not in any way regretful. However, the fight continues and the guard must never be laid down.
I do not feel that the younger generation recognizes nor appreciates what we of the older generation have handed to them. Typical of youth. As we all know we probably were the same way. I want nothing back. I just want the torch passed to a sincere, responsible generation who will continue the fight. To be "pretty" is not the most important issue. It is a wonderful thing. I was pretty and still am. That is a gift. More important, is a person's attitude. The heart, soul mind are the essential elements of our being. Character, very much, counts.
As I have gotten older I decided to disengage from seeking any new friendships or relationships. I decided to stick to the tried and true, friends I have made throughout the years. I stick to small non-public gatherings and have kept a low profile. I did not want to take a chance and re-experience some of the bad relationships of my past. At my age, I have become very comfortable with myself and would not risk any new nonsense.
I can change my mind and I have. I am still vital and still have much to offer. I merely request the same in return from another. It may be a casual encounter, a friendship or to fall madly in love. There must be, for me, at least a minimum of emotional connection at the beginning that might grow and develop. Silent anonymous quick sex is not what I seek. I desire some substance and warmth. I would love to meet someone and build upon a basic friendship that might lead to something deep and rich.
I would love to hear from men of all ages and types everywhere. However, for realistic and practical purposes I really would like to communicate and meet guys from my area, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.
