Haven’t posted in forever. Been working shit out.
Been getting hits on various “dating”: sites and apps, but it’s all been guys in relationships. some open and some under the dubious “don’t ask don’t tell.”
But this weekend had the weirdest experience.
there was this older dude who was flirty n then wanted to meet while he was in town. He found me on facebook and i accepted his request. Warning bells went off when . he posted on his facebook page: “i want you, <my name>” This wasn’t a private message but an actual posting on his wall.
The day before we were to meet he mentioned he’d be with his lover of 22 years. i decided i didn’t want to meet because it was weird. and even if it meant a 3 way set up, which i’m not against, i didnt find his partner attractive.
So i have a great weekend just hanging out with friends.
Then on monday i wake up to a message from the dude: “go fuck yourself you stuck up fat fuck”
ummm ok. so glad i trusted my instinct and avoided him.
SUMMARY: Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be.
I don’t make it a point to read Young Adult novels, but I recently bought a bunch of Latino authored books. I found this one by doing a search for gay Latino on Amazon. I ended up starting it on a Friday night and got through half of it, woke up the next morning and read the rest. I was hooked from the beginning despite being put off when one of the first things in the book is narrator Ari (Aristotle) bags a bit on Heart.(They’re one of my fave groups ever.) But this key point places the time of the book in the mid 1980s.
I absolutely fell in love with this book. Saenz created an absolutely believable cast of characters that I actually cared about. This book had me emotionally entangled throughout. It even brought me to tears.
