Gay Life- The Paulinator: Reconnection

Posted Tuesday, March 17th, 2009 at 8:50 am by paul in Social Bees. More in 10011

The night of the Missed Connection, after getting on the train, I was immediately drawn to the gentleman and as my companion for the night left the subway to head home, I decided to not sit anywhere else, but right beside him. In my mind I was planning this to actually happen and strangely enough it worked out to my advantage- screenwriters couldn’t have penned a better turnout. Now, to protect the innocent (him) and the not-so-innocent (me) I am going to change up a few minor details. McCutie (as we will now call him) and myself share several friends but we have never officially met. I’ve seen him from afar at parties and other social events we attend which is how I was able to recognize him when I first entered the train. I knew it was only a matter of moments before he worked up enough courage to talk to me! Score, when this happened he was pretty much under my spell it seemed.

After the emails stopped altogether, a few weeks past and I didn’t give it much thought, until I realized we would inevitably run into each other when our mutual friends got together and sure enough, last Monday we reconnected. It actually was really sweet and was just like the conversation we had on the subway. He’s really easy to talk to and it’s fun, which is nice. It would be real simple to forget about all the other prospects and move full steam ahead with this one, but alas there is one catch, and it’s a biggie. I’ve always had one rule when it comes to hooking up/dating, never sh*t where I eat. Technically right now we do not work together, but if I had my way, we could potentially be co-workers some day. This makes things tricky because if something was to happen before getting this job, I could potentially be out of the running until McCutie no longer works at my future place of employment. On the other hand, it could work to my advantage. McCutie could without a doubt pull some strings (yeah, he has some pull) and definitely get my foot in the door. It would be a total casting couch scenario though and is that really what I want in the back of my mind, should I go down this path of employment?!

So I’ve reached a strange predicament, and it wasn’t until we shared a cab ride home that I realized I was about to throw caution to the wind. The taxi make-out session with McCutie won me over and we now have been communicating a bit more and I’ve decided, as much as it pains me, to hold off on even considering a change in employment. I don’t want to burn bridges and I certainly don’t want him to think I’m using him for sex AND a better job. But if I could get both, why shouldn’t I at least try; I’m only human, right?! We are suppose to be making plans for a get together this week… hopefully all goes well!
