My name's Tyler, and if your wondering about my username I should mention I am a big fan of the game "Tales of Symphonia", which Mithos Yggdrasil is a brilliant character in! (----Nerd)
So where to begin...Well I guess I should begin with saying that I came out in grade 9 of high school, and have matured well beyond my years due to this early outing. For many years I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, and thus like most people after high school I attended university in hopes I would find inspiration...There is no inspiration at university! There is only stress, professors who don't care about you, and overly-complicated systems you must navigate if you hope to have a good schedule. I quit after two years, and decided to embrace my love for science and medicine, and become a nurse.(Were you predicting doctor? I was too! Turns out it costs an obscene amount of money and near perfect grades in high school...which I certainly didn't have the first let alone the prior.) Fast forward a year and a half, and that brings you up to date. I am currently studying hard to become a nurse, and absolutely loving it! It is the best decision I have ever made in my life. I have a wonderful and supportive family, an awesome group of friends/classmates/teachers, and have some goals and dreams for the future. My graduation is set to be in February (Yay!) and I am super excited to be an LPN! I eventually want to further my education in medicine, but not just traditional medicine. Once I get a few years experience as a nurse utilizing traditional medicine, I want to study botany and learn to utilize natural properties to promote healing. With both a strong grip on human anatomy and physiology paired with education in both traditional healing practices as well as naturopathic healing practices, I feel I will understand how to better treat people to the best of my ability.
I'm going to be blunt, I'm not sure If I am capable of loving somebody as easily as it appears other gay men around my age are able to; I see all these guys dating new people every few months, and I just couldn't do it. I guess the point I'm trying to get across is that I seek the type of relationship where we both admire each other as individuals, and appreciate each others strengths and weaknesses . I don't see a point of dating somebody unless I like who they are at their core, appreciate how their mind works, and of course am physically attracted to them. I work hard to constantly improve myself, live life without regrets, learn from my failures, but most of all I try and enjoy life. We all have bad components of our life, but we also all have good components too! It's up to us whether we choose to emphasize the good or bad components, and my choice is to always try and look on the bright side - though to err is human, and I cannot always be an optimist.
1- I would not consider dating a guy in the closet
--------- I've been out for 7 years and if your not comfortable with your sexuality while friends is an option, I want a man who knows and accepts who he is, and is proud about it.
2- If you're looking for a "straight acting" guy to date, it's not me.
--------- I'm not super manly, but I'm not overly flamboyant either. I am exactly who I am, and I think everybody should just be themselves and stop trying to be things they aren't- you don't see straight men describe themselves as "gay acting", so its a little odd for gay men to describe themselves as 'straight acting' don't you think?
Thank you for reading this and if you made it all the way to this point I would sincerely like to hear from you. :)
