it’s been a while since this retired singer flexed his vocal chords for a crowd, but maybe if you’re lucky he’ll serenade you. when it comes to his personality, this hot single is a loyal old soul who writes thank you cards but who’s also the type to get a spontaneous first-time tattoo. he’s looking for an emotionally available goofy guy… could you live in harmony together?
stay hot 🥵
what’s your claim to fame?
I turned down an opportunity to sing with Beyonce. Oops. Definitely one to dive deeper into on date 2, but the TLDR is that I was a singer growing up (retired now unless you count my steering wheel and shower head). I got recruited by a choir and ended up declining because I didn’t want to go to boarding school, only to realize that they then performed with Beyonce at the Oscars not too long after. I continued to sing for a few years after missing out on Queen B and then quit singing altogether ahead of going to college. I will always wonder what if, but hey, at least I got to perform in the UK and at the National Cathedral a few times!
what’s the best interaction you’ve had with a stranger?
There have been many, to be honest. I mean, running physically into Glenn Close while we were matching was iconic. My favorite interaction happened when I was standing on a street corner my first summer in NYC. A man walked between my best friend and I as we were waiting for the light to turn so we could cross. He turned and looked at me, flicked my nipple and screamed “bean dip”. Then he did the same to my friend and walked off. I’ve never laughed so hard and now it’s a running joke with all my crew.
😈 what’s your toxic trait?
🚩cue up the Britney track 🚩 I’d have to go with the fact that the Myers Briggs literally can’t rate me. I’m an independent Extroverted Introvert. While I’m pretty extroverted once you get to know me, I’m more introverted at first - partner that with my independence and it can sometimes come off as I’m not interested in someone, really reserved or exclusive. Peel back the layers though, I promise it’s worth it. Oh and don’t @ me, but I also really hate Oasis.
🥵 what makes you hot?
I’m loyal af (have had the same bestie since pre-school and the same roommate for 10 years)
Always down for an adventure whether it’s going to see some crazy performance, a trip or even got a small tattoo for the first time with a friend this year
Am a bit of an old soul (always send thank you notes, enjoy reading, like spending time with my family)
Will always surprise you (to say people were shocked when I got a tattoo)
Normally a calm presence since I try to always to remind myself of this Cleo Wade poem - more or less a metaphor for always being a lighthouse and keeping your light shining because you never know who you’re going to guide. We all go through our struggles, but I always try to see the shore ahead and when I can - I prefer to calm the sea rather than cause a storm.
Can reach to the high shelves
🔎 who are you looking for?
A fellow gay man, ideally someone international looking to lock in a green card and who carries multiple passports in countries that will also give me citizenship. But for legal purposes that is just a joke and I’m looking for someone who is down for adventure, frequently in a silly goofy mood, passionate about what they do, empathetic and emotionally available.
