Get To Know Me & Who I'm Looking For

Introduction

My name is Ben, and I currently reside in Franklin, TN (even though I live much closer to Bellevue in Davidson County). On August 28th, I will be 33 years old, and I wanted nothing more this year than freedom from my shame and loneliness. This is a transitional phase of my life, and I want to approach it carefully. I am certain that meeting others facing the same issues would be an important step to take. Here's a little more about me: I have known my sexual orientation for most of my life. However, being in a devout and very supportive Christian family, I did not want to accept myself as being gay and hoped that the Lord would eventually change me. Due to some rumors about me (some of which were true) throughout my adolescent years, I was regularly bullied in school and had very few friends. I hated my name and that stupid pain relief rub called Ben-gay. This became a callous spin-off for others to use as harassment, regularly hearing my classmates insult me by saying Ben-gayhow long? I had trouble relating to other males and would often go home in tears. As my classmates and I grew older and more mature, the bullying began to taper off, though my sexual attractions for males became much more evident. But since Ive always wanted my own family, and to lead a normal, God accepted life, I have continuously suppressed these feelings; I believe this is the challenge that most people of faith struggle with. While I have hesitantly shared my struggles with some of my family, I am ready to take bigger, bolder steps towards accepting myself and making it known to all of my family and friends. Im tired of feeling lonely and isolated, and I am eager to meet people of faith who can personally relate to what I have struggled with throughout my life. Its time for me to take courage, and trust that my decisions will actually strengthen my faith in God.
