Always seem to be single around gay days, I just got dumped last month after about 2 months... although it was probably for the best

I'm going this year if anyone wants to meet up... I haven't been in about 2 years but I used to go to all the parks single all the time when I lived in Tampa for college in the 90's. I even dated a few CM's after realizing I was gay! (I was very naive and innocent until my sister got me drunk for the first time and told me I was gay when I turned 25 in 1998.) So I've been going to gaydays since 1999.

Have been a Disney fan since my parents took us in 1978 from New York when I was 5 and I've been to every park except MK during opening week. I'd like to live in Orlando but currently I'm stuck about 3 hours south because I own an Italian restaurant with my brother (I also play viola in the local symphony.)

I am so jealous of you!!!! I never got to go as a child and to have gone during the opening of the other parks very cool.

So here goes, I really have no idea what to put in here

I just find it really hard to find a guy in general then mention the fact that I LOVE Disney and it goes downhill from there. Why is there such a stigma on loving Disney? Oh yeah being here in Canada doesn't help matters much.

It's so funny when all my girlfriends keep saying "We'll find you someone", sure you will. The last guy they suggested I go out with turned out to be a complete liar and broke my heart.

So anyome else? lol

I can see I'm a bit late in joining this thread but I share your frustrations of finding a guy who doesn't run for the hills when I mention I'm a Disney fan. I sometimes think they must at that point assume I'm a big nelly queen. Which I'm not, I just happen to be obsessed with Disney.

Oh well, I will meet the right guy someday. I'm wishing....

I too am late in joining this thread! But I do understand. My friends just look at me and shake their head when they find out I am going to Orlando, especially by myself!

I am not an over-the-top Disney fan, but I do have my fair share of memorabilia! I look at it as we just have great taste in a man, and a company that has created some great works of art! And look at the fun and enjoyment it has brought to so many people!

I get the same reaction every time I go. I travel a lot by myself and don't mind. I'm going back to WDW on December 7th and then sailing out on the Fantasy on the 8th.

In the early 90s, I traveled all the time by myself...I'd go to NYC three times a year...I would see a bunch of musicals and hang at the bars at night...then for the past 15 years I was in a relationship, so I always traveled with my BF...well we broke up this past March...I'm going to WDW solo on Sunday for a week...so I'm a bit nervous about traveling alone again...not that I can't do it...I just don't know if I can be totally 'at ease' with myself...I used to just hit the road and do stuff and not think twice about what I was doing...now, I'm double-guessing myself...so next week, traveling solo at WDW will be kinda of a test...if I can do WDW on my own, then I'll feel better about traveling over-seas next year...I'll just have to wait and see...!!!

Single and Gay and a Disney Fanatic

Nice to see this conversation. Im a single GWM, just turned 50, and so ready for a trip to DL. I am hoping to head down in a month...need a major DIsney fix. Has anyone stayed at Paradise Pier or the Grand Californian? What do you recommend? Take it easy!

Florida or Cali ?

I've been to WDW, so many times and loved it. I liked GayDays Orlando in 2011, it was ok. Never been to California before, would like to see DL. I can't pick where I want to go this year.

Every day is gay day :)

Hi all. Anyone else go to Disneyland regularly? I live in San Francisco but like to get down there as often as I can and not seeing the guy I went with so thought Id put it out there and see if any other Disneyland fans possibly interested in sharing some Disney talk or potentially meeting up at DL.

Is it weird that I hate being single but am almost completely indifferent to dating right now? Well, besides the fact that my work schedule makes it next to impossible to go anywhere, coupled with not having a car so I'm at the mercy of the bus. Plus, Dallas gays are so shallow and conceited and cliquish that you have to be attractive to even have guys want to be your friends. And I'm only moderate at best. IDK. My depression has been back and forth lately. I'll start the day ok, but by the end of the day I'm just blah. And I see friends on Facebook going out and doing stuff with other friends. Or people talking about meeting people and such. And its completely unfair that almost every other profile I see online is a triad relationship, and I can't even get one guy to have a casual friendship with. Its insane.

I know this, but from what a lot of people not from Dallas have told me, the shallowness is worse here? Something like that. I blame the TV show, lol.

If you think they're shallow in Dallas, try Miami. It's REAL bad here.
