Hails, comrades!

Unread postby Mosin1917 » 1 February 2021, 20:26

Good afternoon, I hope you guys are doing all you can to mitigate the effects this mental trench warzone era has on our collective sanity. As for yours truly, my self-therapy regimen consists of fucktons of bud, edgelord metal tunes, Doom Eternal, and daily social media contact with my international crew of degenerates. But no one has proven more instrumental in healing all my suffering than my partner... I sometimes have to pinch myself in sheer wonder at him. Je t'adore plus que la vie elle-même, ma petite fleur de cerisier...

Anyway, now that we got all that sappy shit out of the way, a little about myself. I'll be a quarter-century old later this month, and sometimes I still feel like that clueless little kid inside, with the Coke bottle glasses, obsessed with trains and Calvin and Hobbes comics. I know forums are soooo '90s and 2000s, but honestly, some of my first-ever social experiences were on them, so that model still has a place in my heart. I always identified as bi, but part of me is debating whether or not pan would be a better fit. Currently, I actually have a decent remote job where I'm in my element for once, and miraculously earned my BA in English as part of the ill-fated class of 2020, or as I like to call it, the spring break that never ended.

I've endured a fuckton of trauma throughout my childhood that has weighed on me heavily, but also shaped me into a resilient, empathetic, somewhat less socially inept man. Having been deprived of many experiences considered part of a "normal childhood", the term "gay pride" has taken on a whole new significance to me and my partner. It's something more humble and individualist, and represents the newfound autonomy and freedom that I lacked for so long, that my peers in the boujee-ass towns I grew up in took for granted.

I'm not exactly a veteran of the glory hole scene, nor am I interested in the prospect of cruising. Grindr is out of the fucking question, as are poppers. Call me a traditionalist in that regard... in fact, I gotta confess that I was a complete virgin prior to meeting my boyfriend over OKCupid. For the most part, I'm on here to share camraderie, empathy, and my opinions and experiences with fellow degenerates. Anyway, I should probably cut it off now before I make an ass of myself any further. Feel free to ask me any questions here if you wanna get to know me better. In the meantime, take care of yourselves, and spasibo for reading!

How long have you and your boyfriend been together?

Nice. Mine is wine, disorienting mix of industrial/hyperpop, historical RTS games, and shitposting on various niche forums. Mostly the wine, though.

How degenerate is the crew? And how international? A rogue, rapscallion, rake, rascal and reprobate on every continent?

Btw, the guy above is the boss man. He's the worst scoundrel of them all. Trust nothing he says.

Well you certainly don’t seem to be very degenerate if the beginning of this paragraph is to be believed! :nod:

If I was in Ukraine, I probably wouldn't have the balls to post here and for good reason, so put two and two together LMAO. And to answer your question, in April we'll be together for two years.

Perhaps you'd be surprised, then. There was a Ukrainian guy who posted for a little bit. I remember because he had blue hair and was pretty. :P

Welcome, comrade. Mind translating your Surrenderese from the first paragraph for those of us who took German in high school?
