time ONE

7:15 am

Awake with my first alarm, that’s a miracle. I’m hoping to get back to my day gym regimen, but these days is actually tough, since I’m however recovering from a boozy weekend travel using my buddies. I am tired.

8:24 a.m.

I’m at the fitness center and hate-listening to Taylor Swift to have through twenty minutes throughout the StairMaster. Fuck.

10:05 a.m.

My personal levels of energy perk up inside my task, and that is at a magazine. My manager is out, thus I can take the day slow than usual. The weekend travel was just what I had to develop to emotionally reset, with the exception of the fact it miiiiight have reignited a vintage crush on Sean, one of my near — and very straight — friends. It is a total cliché, but he had been my first crush post-coming in school, where we were both communications majors upstate, and now that he’s transferred to the town, i ought ton’t be blown away at background repeating itself. Sean drunkenly explained he enjoys me personally (platonically, obv) on trip, which just put me personally back once again a couple of years. However, this might be good for my unofficial New-year’s quality to be a reduced amount of a slut …

6:43 p.m.

I forgot I’d plans to get drinks with a vintage co-worker after finishing up work, but here i’m. We are near Wall Street, in fact it is a surprisingly rich region for hookups. Overlooking my quality, I check Grindr while my friend is within the restroom — but no dice.

10:25 p.m.

Cautious everything desire. I’m residence, during intercourse, and Grindr is actually popping — now, with two dudes from my last: One is a hookup-turned-kinda-friend, in addition to additional is now stored during my contacts under “screwing Dick.” Turns out, my personal week-end and unacceptable crush made me just a little desperate … I decide to try starting one thing with each of them. Absolutely nothing pans away, and so I shower and go to bed without moving away from.

time a couple

10:30 a.m.

I am in a meeting and my personal co-worker shows me an unfairly lovable Insta of the woman cousin and his boyfriend. They live in the South, where I covertly think its much easier to satisfy and time individuals (personally i think because of this about anyplace beyond NYC). Also the Republican area that I’m from in Southern California is full of gays coupling with each other left and appropriate. Across weekend, a friend tried telling me everybody here should get off their own applications and “merely speak with people.” She might be correct, but she also resides in the Southern.

12:06 p.m.

I text Connor to state hi. Connor is … challenging. We came across three and a half years back on Grindr (shock!), so we’ve been hooking up off and on since. He’s hands down best intercourse of my life, but he also offers a girlfriend. So.

4:16 p.m.

The messages just take a hot change. He’s going right on through some household stuff, which I experimented with becoming receptive to, but i cannot make it. Whatever we have going on, it doesn’t consist of feelings or friendship.

5:09 p.m.

My efforts repay by means of a grainy video clip Connor delivers me from his restroom at your home, chance from under his butt as he arrives. We see it inside my work desk — volume muted, natch — before getting assigned a project that helps to keep myself at the office a couple of hours past when I often go home. Karma.

9:05 p.m.

Connor messages once again to share with me personally he is already been “practicing” with a toy. I do not answer, however it establishes the tone for my night.

9:23 p.m.

We start Grindr and content a cute man, just who also is the closest to me. Their show title says “Bottom.” Sold.

10:10 p.m.

Bottom gets to my apartment and I understand he has a feature (Polish, which I guess precisely; he isn’t one Polish guy I’ve slept with). The guy kisses myself and from that point, I move things along quickly because I’m not sure when my roommates are arriving house. Just as we seize his ass, I have the sudden compulsion to inquire about him what their name is. “Mark,” the guy informs me.

10:21 p.m.

Well, that is accomplished. Three minutes into banging him, Mark is finishing hands-free across his chest area. Its flattering, but he also decides he is the only person moving away from tonight. We deliver him on his method, yet not before kissing him within door — one thing i really do away from a feeling of obligation, not always desire. Whatever, I’m working through it. I have my self off during intercourse before thinking of moving the kitchen to complete some work.


10 a.m.

Bagel Wednesday in the office. Fuck yeah.

11:15 a.m.

We message Sean, asking him if he wants to see a film on the weekend. The guy already provides intends to find it together with his relative. Great, I’ll see it by myself.

1:52 p.m.

Connor messages, asking basically viewed their video clip again. Here is the the majority of hands-on he’s experienced a bit, that leads us to believe there might be an IRL conference on the horizon. He’s got to “figure completely their routine,” that I try imply “figure out of the girl circumstance.” I believe harmful to an instant before I remind myself personally it isn’t really my problem.

3:10 p.m.

Mike texts me. He is another unsaved quantity from apps, but we have been speaking continuously and I also believe I like him inasmuch as you’re able like some body you merely spoke to for a tremendously short time. Then again, i have additionally accomplished this prior to and been dissatisfied as soon as the man I never ever annoyed to save lots of to my personal connections eventually ends up ghosting myself. But Mike is sweet in which he’s asking about my personal pet. I believe he goes toward church.

6:32 p.m.

Mike likes football. I don’t have the heart to share with him Really don’t.


1:22 p.m.

Connor requires me about his video once more, which, ok, it isn’t really fucking


. But this is exactly good; we’re positively banging eventually.

6:15 p.m.

Like clockwork, my personal mom phone calls when I leave any office. We talk quite regularly, often as I’m walking to the train. Many times, i will tell the girl what’s on my head. Maybe not these days, though. These days I’m simply contemplating how I’m going to get see a film on my own, that we’d be fine with if it were not your proven fact that I would instead end up being viewing it with a specific boy. (I just


we’d have too much to speak about afterward, okay?)

My mother in general is actually eventually fine with me being homosexual, but we nonetheless cannot feel like i will communicate with the woman about internet dating and crushing and whatever. As soon as, I asked the lady just how she and dad would react if I introduced house a boy and she stuttered through a non-response for the full minute. So that’s that.

7:30 p.m.

I’m in a motion picture movie theater with Shake Shack hidden during my case, by yourself.

7:45 p.m.

Due to a certain software,

I get a blow-job offer from someone in the region. However the motion picture’s going to start and that I already know I’m heading direct house after. Not the very first time recently, I contemplate deleting Grindr.

time FIVE

7:50 a.m.

We wake up to a text from Mike, which will be … wonderful. Their routine is really he comes asleep before me, but he always begins your day by picking right up last night’s talk.

11:09 a.m.

I am functioning whenever my personal telephone buzzes. It is a finance guy that’s blown me once before. He’s usage of their friend’s apartment nearby which time, he would like to screw. My diary is actually bare … not that I wouldn’t have relocated things around in any event.

12:15 p.m.

Finance guy needs me here promptly — quickie policies and all of — and that I oblige. Their friend’s bed room provides huge north-facing house windows, and I focus on the unobstructed view of Midtown when I fuck him from at the rear of.

2:17 p.m.

Buzz. Not surprisingly, Connor has leisure time this weekend. We determine tomorrow, 1 p.m., my location.

4:40 p.m.

Mike and that I are having a constant backwards and forwards over text, which I think excellent in regards to. He will leave work around 4, therefore he is currently at a bar, having and looking forward to buddies.

I have a tendency of oversharing when We decide I really like some body. I’m trying to rein it in with Mike, as opposed to scare him down with the normal “I really like you” and “you’re so great to speak with” I lob at men whenever they start make payment on littlest little attention to me. We’ve hit a good balance of light teasing, without phrase nausea on my component. But I’ve found out he in addition cherished Britney Spears while developing right up, so he’s that makes it hard.

8:12 p.m.

A friend asks me to emerge and go dance at some homosexual party tonight. The thing is, monday evening is actually my time and energy to decompress from a long few days; I’ve never been in a position to understand those who go from work, to meal, to maybe house, to bar jumping until at the beginning of the day. The other thing is, I’m already in comfortable garments to my couch, to make sure that’s maybe not occurring.

time SIX

11:09 a.m.

I wake-up, shower, and immediately will tidying the apartment. By some miracle, one of my roommates is at her parents’ when it comes down to week-end together with additional are at a random dude’s she actually is watching. Eventually, I’ll be capable contact somebody “that guy i am watching.” But these days — your day I’m fucking some girl’s date — isn’t that day.

12:50 p.m.

Connor messages so that myself know he is running late because he forgot their gloves in the home. Before I’m able to always check so how cool its external, he comes after with: “In my opinion i am only stressed.” It’s lovable.

1:23 p.m.

Goddamn, Connor is hot. He’s 30, that’s admittedly since old as I’ve ever eliminated, but he tends to make me give consideration to rendering it a typical thing because wow, the guy understands just what he is performing. We write out for a time — a treat, when compared to 20-somethings who would favor a peck or two prior to getting right to it.

1:30 p.m.

He consumes me down want it’s an Olympic recreation.

1:50 p.m.

I have him off with just my personal fingers inside him. The guy demands a little to recover, therefore we chat. We do not really live on their household problems, but he tells me about his brand new task as well as how he’s contemplating acquiring a pet. It really is strange to imagine our lives will not really intersect beyond this, yet still, I allow my personal head wander.

2:40 p.m.

Connor kisses me at doorway on their solution, and it’s sweeter than it demands as. Probably will not see him once again for months.

7 p.m.

Not fun tonight either, that I’m okay with. Rather, pals are arriving up to view flicks and order Indian meals. Sean shows up and goes right when it comes to alcohol inside my refrigerator. We decide it was the dash of a wasted week-end out that helped me believe I liked him again. He’s in a precarious scenario, anyhow: His long-time sweetheart simply broke up with him (once more) fairly lately.

10:20 p.m.

However, we snuggle nearer to Sean on the couch since the 2nd motion picture starts. I can not help it.

time SEVEN

9:27 a.m.

I can never ever sleep in on Sundays. My body has made it a rule. We cuddle with my pet for an hour, letting the woman purr against my area when I scroll through Instagram and each other app. Maybe not Grindr, however; I will stay down for some times after a very great lay.

11 a.m.

Because the guy can not appear to realize boundaries or even the concept of an individual existence regarding the week-end, my supervisor texts myself about a contact he delivered yesterday evening. The email can wait until I’m back on clock; we overlook him and determine nowadays will likely be a cleaning day.

2:30 p.m.

I cleaned the bathroom, your kitchen, the kitty litter box, together with family room. I debate actually committing and tackling my personal place next, but I find yourself regarding sofa, weed pen at your fingertips.

4 p.m.

Good, I’m on Grindr. You will find no justification, other than I’m kinda large and it’s something you should do. Plus, the bout of

Dark Echo

I am watching is bleak as fuck, and I also need certainly to check out. I inform myself personally I’m not really angling to connect with any individual, so it is okay.

4:34 p.m.

Mike saves myself from my self in a large method. He asks when I’m liberated to hang out. We decide on conference in precisely weekly, every day after stakes tend to be lower — or so we tell myself personally.

8:30 p.m.

I am showered plus sleep much prior to when meant. I’ve a physician’s appointment this week: only a routine checkup and an HIV/STD examination, that’ll (hopefully) allay latent stress and anxiety which comes roaring to life after days like the one i have only had. My head begins extrapolating various hypothetical scenarios from various hypothetical outcomes, and so I pull open a manuscript and start reading.

9:07 p.m.

Mike delivers me personally a selfie from a bar he is at. My personal initial idea  is actually “sweet!” but we pay my personal book and contemplate some thing much less … enthusiastic. I’m playing the very long online game here.
