I'm gay and want to meet people!

Unread postby Ryan_bisexual » 24 August 2022, 13:01

Hey everyone! I'm new here.

My name is Ryan and I'm a 26 year old bisexual male (they/them) who just moved to Sydney Australia all the way from Yarmouth in England!

I just wanted to share one of my favourite photos with everyone :)

I'm not on my computer very frequently, but if you're also gay/bi and new to Sydney please feel free to text me or email me! I'd love to make some new friends - perhaps we could explore more of Sydney together!

My number: ##########
My email: removed@gmail.com

Hello, Ryan.

Catfishing being the easy task that social media has made it in modern times, could you not find a picture that wasn’t taken on 35mm film in 1996?

Hi Marmaduke, this photo was taken around a month ago with an iPhone! It's just a filter I used for Instagram.
If you'd like to reach out to me via email, I'd be happy to send you my Instagram username, so you can see all my photos.

Whilst Ryan shows definite willing to learn the business of being an internet sleazebag, and it certainly happy to apply himself to the task at hand, his attention to detail and overall lack of understanding of a non-suspect social dynamic in a contemporary context is leading him to failure.

Ryan would do well to remember that nobody communicates by email outside of a work context anymore, so he does somewhat betray his own ends in stubbornly insisting upon using it.

Overall, he should perhaps take time to step back and consider a more vocational occupation such as bricklaying or scaffolding. The world as it is seems beyond his comfort zone, almost as if to suggest he’s in his late 50s.

Hi Ryan, nice to meet you!

I totally respect pronouns, but what's the point of using "they/them" if you identify as a bisexual male?

Btw, extremely dangerous to share your number and email like that. I'd remove it and send it privately to anyone who might be interested.

Thanks for the report card Marmaduke, I joined this forum expecting to be greeted with open arms, which in large part I have. I don't appreciate your unwarranted criticism. Apologies if I have offended you by 'insisting' which I haven't, was merely a suggestion for those who may prefer email; I'm keeping all options open. Perhaps you should re-evaluate your critical response - take a step back and realise you're on an online a gay forum, and not a r/roastme subreddit. I can already tell you'd be an awful person to hang out with.

So many words, yet nothing to substantiate you’re a real person. Your phone number, full name and email address, these things we may have. Your instagram, by which you intend to validate yourself, you’d like to keep private? This we must email you for?

Perhaps you’d prefer we message you on AIM, or via Blackberry messenger?

Welcome Ryan!


But in all honesty, you’ve to admit Marmie is making some good, reasonable points here. Plus, even if he wasn’t, you would still certainly have to admire and appreciate how he seems to always come up with some clever and creative form in which to deliver his remarks, whether scathing or merely expressive of his dubiousness about something (or someone).

Though, to be fair to the newcomer, I don’t know anyone who’s 50+ and knows what a subreddit is. That, then, is at least one point in his favor.

Wait, never mind, I just remembered that Mary frequently reads r/AmItheAsshole.

[Edit] Also, did anyone else notice that the OP posted this topic twice within the span of ten minutes? Either way, why???

No thank you, I don’t feel like giving my phone number to an anonymous sociopath from the internet. I’m pretty confident of my read of this situation. I’m the sort of arrogantly self-assured asshole that doesn’t need to validate his own conclusions.

I’ve laid the burden of proof at your feet. Meet it or don’t, it’s super easy, up to you.

It just occurred to me that the "male" part could be in reference to his biological sex rather than his gender identity. Plus, any gender identity, or lack thereof, is compatible with being bisexual; I'm agender—sometimes identified as gender neutral, despite the connotation that such seems a term denoting a gender, as opposed "agender"—but I've still sometimes identified as bisexual—though, better I think would actually be pansexual in my case. So I see little reason to think the OP's remarks generate a contradiction, supposing one interprets them charitably.

And, as I've tried doing before, let's be fair to the OP. I mean, if you're not willing to give him a call/facetime (and certainly, I'm not either—though perhaps for different reasons), how would he go about proving his age, looks, etc.? A photo of a government-issued ID sounds like an even worse idea than giving out your phone/email so publicly.

Also, as much as I'm a bit ashamed to be that kind of person, I should still remind you that contractions do require apostrophes. Hence, "don't" rather than "dont" and "let's" rather than "lets." I know, I'm absurd and ridiculous and so on!
