4th of July
A lot of shit has happened over the last few months. I've met a few guys, had some flings and most importantly learned a lot about myself and my friends.
I've had my roommate move in on a guy I asked out on a date, lie about hooking up with him and then finally confessing to me that he did hook up with him after I found out through other people. I hate drama. He always tries to swoop in and add me into his crazy and I just got tired of it. My roommate could be an entire book worth of of shit about my roommate.
Moving on... I managed to have an incredibly romantic 4th of July. The above picture was my view of the Macy's fireworks here in NYC. I was also able to meet up with this guy David that I have been talking to over the last few months.
David and I met on Grindr. Our conversation just sparked and we hit it off right away. Messages moved on to texting and then phone calls. We first met up in the beginning of June and there was an instant spark. Have you ever met someone that you just fall for immediately? There was something about David that just gave me butterflies in my stomach and made my heart pound harder than it has in a long time. There is something special about David. I can't put my finger on it but he is special.
I worked all morning on the 4th and woke up in the afternoon planning on just hitting the gym and then heading back into work. Last 4th of July I spent it by myself... drinking a beer on my rooftop surrounded by people having fun before heading back into work for a 12 hour shift. Even though I had to work I wanted to have some fun.
David and I had been texting while I was at the gym and he asked me what my plans were. Since I had none I asked him if he wanted to catch the fireworks together. We met up near his apartment and grabbed burgers. Sitting in this burger shop we just talked, drank beer and smiled at each other. A lot.
If you have ever been down to Hudson River Park you know that it's a fantastic place. On the 4th of July, if you don't have a pass to get into the "Macy's Area" it's hell. You are trapped in pens set up by the NYPD. There are people EVERYWHERE. We went down there and expected to get an ok spot to watch the fireworks and it was packed with people.
Luckily I ran into a friend of mine who is a cop and he was able to bring me and David into the NYPD family area right up against the water to the south of The Frying Pan.
Leading up to the show, David and I found a quiet spot on the grass to sit down and hang out. We talked and just enjoyed each others company. He's fantastic.
It was such a great time. I'm taking him to his first Yankees game on Friday. I'm hoping that he has the same feelings I do because I can't stop thinking about him.
