    I'll second what others have said, that certainly give me hope as well. :)

    I was of the same opinion, but don't worry 'bout it. It sounds worse than it feels.

    I'll give an Amen to that!

    So went to a seminar for work today and on the drive home my upcoming trip came up. My boss asked me if Kevin is my bf. I said no. He then said well I need to get one. The others in the car agreed and said ya stop being so picky you're going to be 30 soon. I swear I wanted to murder each of them. I assured them I'm not being picky it's the opposite. such a great day :-\

    Wait, I just turned 45! If 30 is middle aged, what does that make me? :rotfl:

    Actually, don't answer that. ;)

    42 single and a Disney Fan. If I meet someone, great - if not I'm just happy with me. I'm lucky I have lots a crazy Disney friends (straight and gay) to go with me.

    But I think it would be cool for a lonely (Kingdom) hearts club Disney World trip!

    My bf of a year has never been to Disney (CA or FL). I keep wanting to take him but he prefers going to places more "adult" oriented (and cheaper lol). We went thru Downtown Disney when we down south once and he had an ok time tho, but I'm longing for the day to get him into a park so he can see what it's like!

    DTD is alright as an addition to park time but def nothing in lieu of it. Drag him to parks maybe he'll enjoy it, just go during F&W to make it more of an adult trip.

    You will find the guy who loved Disney just as much as you... and if you don't, you will make him love Disney just as much as you.

    I'm in the boat that when I met my now husband, I had never been to Disney and it didn't interest me much. He convinced me to go to Orlando with him for our first vacation together, but we only went to EPCOT. I think EPCOT is a great first experience for an adult who has never been to Disney because it shows you it isn't all about children and families. We had a GREAT time and it made me want to go back to check out the rest of the parks.

    Fast forward two years and we went back around Christmas and did all of the parks. I had such a great time I knew Disney was a place I would love forever. My husband was the original Disney fanatic, but he made a fanatic out of me too.

    After seeing Disney twice, anytime we are in Orlando I need to at least go to Downtown Disney to get a little fix of the magic. We have also been to Disneyland twice and we love it there as well. We actually just bought into DVC so we can force ourselves to make trips to Disney a priority since we both love it so much. I can't wait until we get the opportunity to do F&W together! Hang in there... when you find the perfect guy to love and spend your life with, he will love Disney just as much as you because he will realize it makes you both happy when you're there together.

    It will be Disneyland though. Those plane ticket prices to Orlando are RIDICULOUS!! Then tickets for the park are another thing...

    about $160 for gas to get there and back for DL. Yahoo!

    I've long thought it would be great to have a significant someone to enjoy my Disney trips with. Heck, I'd settle for an insignificant someone! But I'd like to be able to pack him on ice (or in a suspended animation chamber) the rest of the time.

    I'm in the oddly wonderful position of, at 48, living with my best friend and his boyfriend. We're jokingly referred to as the House of Thrupple (despite the fact that there's nothin' like that going on). We've managed to form an awesome little family unit. My best friend is what I call a "Disney hater" who does not understand the appeal at ALL. His boyfriend is sort of a take-it-or-leave-it guy, but he has two nephews and a niece whom we go to Disney with every couple years. (This is in addition to my at-least-once-a-year trips).

    Anyway, I'm rambling but... yeah, I get the desire to have a "Disneymate."

    I often would like a "Disneymate". I've been traveling to Disney solo for years.

    You're absolutely right. I discovered that the key was to WOW him on his first visit, even if getting him there for his first visit required a roofie-colada and a burlap sack.

    I managed to talk (okay, beg) him into a trip to WDW last new year. We stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge and did Epcot for New Year's Eve. The combination of dinner at Bistro de Paris, all the great NYE parties in World Showcase, and waking up to giraffes the next morning seemed to do the trick. At very least, he didn't complain when I suggested we return in October with two friends of ours and their 3 yr old son.

    For that trip, I wanted him to see a different side of Disney, so the 5 of us stayed in a Treehouse Villa. For all the slight inconveniences of staying in the Treehouses, it was AWESOME. I think he even liked it more than seeing zebras every day.

    Less than a year after our first trip, we are now DVC owners and he is (almost) as excited as I am about our cruise on the Fantasy next March!

    Hi guys... I too would love to find a Disney-lovin' BF, but have been less than aggressive in looking for Disney-related sources of where that guy might be. Any ideas (other than here :-))?

    FYI, through a sorta convoluted arrangement of events last year, I met an ex-CM and we developed a friendship that I had hoped would go further, but he did not share that, uh... goal. So... sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't. And it probably was a good thing, 'cause he was a recent ex-CM and was sorta jaded by his career at the mouse.

    At the same time, I am lucky enough to have lots of good friends that enjoy a Disney trip now and then. So that's good.

    I've met a few cm's (hooked up with em too LOL) but nothing ever really comes of it. The one guy was in CP and boy was he bitter and jaded I honestly couldn't wait to get rid of him. The other was a DCL CM we're still facebook friends though. I have a friend who works at the Disney Store here in T.O. but other than that circle liking Disney seems to be a big negative in gay culture (at least in Canada)
