Hook Up at Mini Stop

Coming from my yoga class at Edsa Shangri-la and wearing my body hugging tank top, I was about to enter Mini-stop at the building where I live, when a friendly and flirty smile from a young boy greeted me.

I pretended not to see the boy as I knew what he was up to. I was dead tired from my yoga practice and was not interested for a hook up aside from the fact that I am already committed.

I got my bottled water and when I got out, the boy was waiting for me. He wasn't bad looking. He has nice Chinese eyes and a lanky frame revealing his young age. When I entered the gate of our building community, the boy followed me as I walked towards my building.

He asked me "anong building mo?" (Which building are you from?). I replied and I quickly asked him, "Ilang taon ka na?" (How old are you?). "18", he answered.

Then I bluntly told him, "Hijo, matanda na ako. Igalang mo naman ako. Ituring mo na lang akong parang tiyahin mo. Huwag mo naman akong karirin." (Young, I am much older than you are. Give me my due respect and treat me like your old aunt! Please don't try to hook up with me.

The boy was "astounded" by my response and quickly walked away.

Hi Lex. What's your view on missing chances for gays who are deeply into a relationship? Thanks.

What do you mean by "missing chances"?

Hi Lex,

I meant by "missing chances" opportunities for a "quickie" with anyone who comes our way. For an attractive gay man like you, there must be a lot of temptation, like this encounter at Mini Stop. How's it for a gay man deep into a relationship? Thanks.

It's not about missing chances. It's about not hurting your most beloved partner.
