In Praise of Virtual Boyfriends
NOTE: On Facebook, I shared the following post. It generated a lost of enthusiastic response so I wanted to share it in my blog too. It is a small window into the heart of one gay man in the new millennium. Mine.
I have a "virtual boyfriend." What's that? It's someone who often lives in another country but you click really well with. And though you might not ever meet, you want to feel a bit more connected. So Leon is my virtual boyfriend in Serbia. We've been VBs for a few months. I will share a bit of our correspondence today.
DWIGHT: Yes, bread is nice. Bake for me some day, Boyfriend. And feel free to call me boyfriend because i have almost never been called that. :(
LEON: hehe, I would bake bread + cook for you...you're a great guy and the best virtual boyfriend that I ever had, Boyfriend!
