I tell the story, I must say that I've met many people from IRC, they have
either shaped my life and helped me through troubles, yes, you can't take
IRC or AOL seriously but 1 out of the 10 people you chatted with there is
a person that will make your time worthwhile spent. I've known (not met in
person yet) many people and many nice people came across during the chatting
process... One of them is Chris... Recently, I've chatted with a few great
guys, like Mike of Cleveland (wise and good pool player, taught me a lot in
how to play well on regulation tables and now I got my own cue stick to play
him!), Michael B. of DC (a dear friend whom I'm extremely comfortable to talk
to not to mention, he is very cute), Jon of Columbus (someone I always talked
in Spanish with and his birthday is like a day before mine) :), David and
Brian of Cleveland (a wonderful, cute and hot couples that I've died to meet
long time ago and finally came through, David cooks wonderful meal!), Mike
of Malaysia (cute and great personality, he cares a lot for me and currently
dating a cool guy), and many others, so don't get jealous if you are not dedicated,
it will eventually. :) hehe
story unfold here.. During the winter of 1995 (December of 95 I think), after
my break up with Eduardo, I was very depressed and down, within a few months,
I spent almost 3K in food and travel, one of the trip I did was to visit Chris
from NJ (Piper on IRC, a good friend of mine and at the same time, went to
the club called Tunnel to dance)
At this wonderful
club that is divided into three sections, I met a bunch of people from the
#gayNYC channel on IRC, including bardoo the Diva gurl, enyc (my good friend
Eduardo, a Chinese/Hispanic from Peru, cool and warm friend), Capt. Max, David
(soemone from Boston), and a few others. Bardooie introduced me to several
people while getting in, the ONLY person's face I will never forget is Chris...
He was about
5'6", 130#, a tight black shirt and and club black pants on... He seemed
shy and had that puppy eyed look in his face all the time.. He didn't know
that I was following him most of the time at the club.. At that time, Chris
thought I was a bit unfriendly and didn't care less where I was... Of his
surprise, I was mostly around him...
I came back to
Cleveland thinking of him a lot and hoping that in the future I would bump
into him, no luck. I visited NYC many times and went to Roxy and Tunnel as
much as I can manage within my schedule, but I couldn't find him.
One day at #gaynyc, I ended up chatting with this person nick Onk
(now is Bambi-), we talked and then he told me he was at the club during the
time I visited, I was surprised, because I didn't know Chris was online as
well. He then sent me a picture of his.. What I can say is WOW, it's HIM!
I then proceeded telling him how much I wanted to meet him and never had a
chance.. etc. We agreed to meet next time when I'm in town.
I went to NYC
again, this time with Eddie (my best friend and the only family in Cleveland
and his moving to Orlando at the end of March) and Jason (Avatar21 on IRC),
at Tunnel, I met Chris, but we didn't talk much, probably because we were
meeting many other #gayNYC people and I was trying my best to entertain my
friends as well. Chris seemed shy again, and after a few hi and smiling, we
parted our way, it was NOT a very good meeting time.
Couple of days
later, we chatted on IRC, I've expressed my crush to him and he responded
as well, after a few flirting and jokes, we agreed to be the IRC boyfriends
(just for fun), where we will date and stuff and when we meet, we will take
times for each other... I've kept my communication open with him for the past
years and we've seen each other having boyfriends and going through breakups.
At many occasion,
I wanted to visit NYC again, but my work load prevented me to make the trip,
now, the table has changed, he most likely will be visiting me in March 1998
and we can catch up with all the times we missed each other.
2 years of knowing
him and now, fate has brought us closer and the more I get to know him, the
more I enjoyed being around him. For these past several months, he has brighten
my life and taught me a few things. And for his time being, I would want him
to have a time he won't forget! Chris, looking forward in meeting you again
and spend some good quality time with you!
Of the 5 days he was here, I had a wonderful time, got a chance to make a
dream come true and I'm very content of the result, I've miss him already
for not being around but I know our path will cross again soon in the near
future. ;) Since I am going to visit him in May, we will hang out in Orlando
in June and July he visiting again. :)
