Hello guys, a post by a newbie which you surely don't wanna miss

Unread postby JereW. » 17 October 2020, 16:55

Yo guys. I just came across this lovely forum and wanna reach out to more of you.

Warning: You might be about to read one of the most lengthy and exhausting posts which you've ever seen.

I was born and raised in a traditional small town in China (I'm not a CCP spy, so don't bite me or start at me plz). When I was a kid, I got bullied a lot, both mentally and physically, by those popular guys at school, who used to call me a "sissy dwarf". Even during those dark times, I always knew that I was into boys and that there should be nothing wrong about loving someone of the same gender.

I was fortunate enough to get accepted by one of the best universities in Hong Kong. My college experience is by no means perfect, but it has allowed me to freely explore who I truly am. I joined our school's LGBTI support group and participated in a lot of diversity and inclusion activities, including Hong Kong Pride Parade among a lot of other terrific events.

Right now I am doing my master's degree at a prestigious European university and really aspire to move on to pursue doctoral studies in North America or in Europe.

Straight-acting but into a lot of queer things. For instance, I really enjoy watching romantic gay movies and hence would expect you not to laugh at me for having a vulnerable little girl inside of my heart. I am an atheist but have full respect for people of all religions. I hope you wouldn't mind the fact that I am a non-native English speaker (so I might not be able to appreciate your humor instantly), though I do speak pretty decent English especially in an academic setting.

Last but not the least, I'd love to provide a What I Like list below so that you can better figure out whether we can make a good companion. Feel free to PM me for some chitchat. ;)
Jogging | Table Tennis | Hiking | Singing | Playing the Piano | Reading | Travelling | Watching Movies

Ah sorry. Guess that I don't really know the rules here. I've revised the original post and it should be fine now.

Welcome to the forum, Jeremiah.

What's the subject of the textbooks you're reading?

Hi Brenden. My current degree is rather interdisciplinary. It involves economics, sociology and public policy.
