By my intimacy with nature I find myself withdrawn from man. My interest in the sun and the moon, in the morning and the evening, compels me to solitude.
Henry David Thoreau (via ladyjungle)
There needs to be an app where gay/queer men who don’t fit into the whole muscle/bear/jock/cub/daddy stereotypes of the gay world can meet and talk. Somewhere that’s NOT grindr.
Somewhere for all the queer, alternative, geeky, artsy, intellectually-inclined, not obsessed with being muscled guys. Somewhere for all the weirdos like the gay community used to be.
There are just no sites are apps like this. There are barely any places like this in general. This needs to be a thing.
