So there’s this guy at the afternoon gym who I’ve mused about for about 3 years or so. He comes in usually about the same time as myself, so we’re usually changing at the same time. He’s very attractive in a normal, unobtrusive way. Nice build, average height, average looks, average build. Never ever have I heard him speak to anyone, or make eye contact or any sort of contact at all ever. To anyone. Ever. He’s extremely upright, walking with a crisp, quick, ramrod straight gait. Always. From his car (a BMW) to the gym, from the locker room to the floor, and from machine to machine always ramrod straight, no nonsense and F-O-C-U-S-E-D.
I have no idea, really, whether he’s straight or gay or whatever. There’s never been a hint of personality to tell. Since I am anything but the chatty sort myself, I’m not liable to find out. I wonder what people at the gym think of me? Or if they do at all? Among gay men I’m not “hot” so I don’t really exist. Straight people don’t regard me much, either. So I doubt if I’m much noticed at all. Interesting, and I hope never to know for sure.
