"I wouldn’t necessarily mind people not knowing I’m gay, but I don’t like being thought of as straight — in the same way that I don’t mind people not knowing I’m a writer, but it would be awkward if they assumed I was an extreme skateboarder, because that’s so far removed from the reality of my life. But there is no blank slate where orientation is concerned; we are straight until proven otherwise. And if you’ve never seen how dramatically a conversation can be derailed by a casual admission of homosexuality, let me tell you, it gets awkward."

Anonymous asked: If i were dating you, I'd want to escape with you to wild places and explore forests, climb mountains and swim in lakes at dusk. I'd want to cherish you under the stars and when we finally came home, I'd want you to know how much you would mean to me, and how grateful I would be to have you in my life.
*blush* By all means, whisk me away! :]
