The results weren't that appealing frankly speaking. Everyone was asking for my stats and cell number. The funny thing is, I was so naive that I had absolutely no idea what are stats and I used to share my sister's cell phone so I couldn't give out my number. Although the idea of hooking up did fascinate me but I needed to trust the other person. But that wasn't happening. Everyone wanted quick service. It's my ass, you moron! I need to trust you before I let you even touch it once!
I had also joined in a few forums, but I didn't actively participate in any of the discussion going on over there. I took a back seat and observed what people said. Amongst the entire crowd, one person stood out to me most. His views were definite and thought provoking. He had also posted a fiction story somewhere and I can't describe in words how amazing it felt to read it. 'Satisfaction' doesn't begin to describe what I felt after reading it. It was like finding an extremely good book in the most pathetic library ever!
As mentioned earlier the profile didn't last very long. But even after I had deleted it, I used to visit the gay forums just to see if he had made any new post or written a new story. Sometimes I felt the urge to add him on my straight profile but then I used to think about my other 162 contacts and chicken out. He was literally my own personal gay icon!
Back then, he had this really obscure picture of image of the Indian actor, Arjun Rampal. It was so obscure that many people thought it was actually him. Poor dude had to include in his 'About Me' that it's not him in the picture. However let me add this, his 'About Me' was one of the best I had ever read. I wish I had saved a copy of it somewhere, but sadly I haven't.
At the end of 2007, I made a new gay profile on Orkut and this ID became Phunk Factor. And it was on this ID that I got to know him. He wasn't the first person I added into my friendlist, but he does happen to be the first person that I revealed my real identity to and then added him onto my straight profile on Orkut as well. That counts for alot!
What started in the beginning of 2008 has lasted till now and it has kept on getting better and better. It might be abit too self-absorbed to say, but we're like the ladies of Sex and the City. Been friends through alot. It's sad that I've never met him. I've seen him on web-cam and we've exchanged pictures on special occasions, but we know each other really well. To watch him move out of a small city to one of the metropolitian cities of India has been amazing. I don't know when I'll be meeting him, but I can tell you one thing for sure. Before I exit this not-so-cruel world, I plan to meet him once, give him a real tight hug and smack him for making a couple of really stupid decision.
Being one of the important people in my life, he certainly deserved a place on my blog. And he will be known as Christian. Stay tuned, alot more to come on him sooner and later!
Happy Birthday, Christian!
Hope I managed to make your day special once again!
