Gay Boyfriend

A few years ago, when I was going through a particularly difficult time, I composed a personal ad. I never actually placed it, but this is an approximation of what it said:

Grace Seeks Will
Recently heart-broken straight female seeks gay male for cuddling, movie-watching, backrubbing, cooking, shopping, dancing, fashion advice, more cuddling, and commiserating about boys

I realized that I wasn't ready to date, didn't even want to date really, but that I missed being touched. I was lonely...but really all I wanted was somebody who would cuddle up with me on the couch and watch movies. I didn't need a boyfriend, I realized one day while watching Will and Grace. I needed a gay best friend. Perhaps a next-door neighbor, or even a roommate.

Of course fachless, my opera-singing girlfriend, has told me time and time again that they are not all they are cracked up to be. I suppose that she is right; television rarely matches up with reality. Still, it was a great idea in my head.

I never found my gay best friend, and instead I jumped into the wacky world of Internet Dating. This had its own adventures and wonderful rewards, and I have no regrets... but every now and then I remember my imaginary gay roommate and all the fun we had together. So I was quite pleased today to discover that I am not the only one who has come up with such ideas!
(warning: the link is hilarious but beware if you have perfect pitch!)
