This domain name is a remnant of a time and place past. I reclaimed and used it, only because the domain name I have now was not available. Since registering Inesia.net, there is no real need to hold on to this old domain name, there is no intrinsic value in it, not any sentimental value.
As the first step in this process, this blog moved from myblog.curdsign.com to myblog.inesia.net. further steps will include disabling of the email capabilities between now and the coming 6 months.
If I decide to pursue any commercial activities in the future, I'll register another more meaningful domain name.
I sure hope this first change goes well.

A couple of months ago, I wrote how I had met this wonderful guy who summarized all I have been missing in my previous relationships.
I just realized that I forgot to post any update on that.
I guess life wanted to teach me yet another lesson, namely that it doesn’t matter how many boxes someone ticks. Without love, it just doesn’t work.
There’s not much I can say about what happened. We had a wonderful time while it lasted. Unfortunately, it just didn’t last. Now we’re back to square one and trying to build a platonic friendship.
Having gone through the realization that it wouldn’t work, did cost me a lot of my self-esteem and caused some setbacks. But in the end, I had to remind myself that my happiness was not dependent on anybody but myself.
In no way am I saying that this was easy, it cost me a lot of energy and pain, but I’m getting there.
I do ask myself why I never learn. The thing is that, no matter how much I try, I can not enjoy being intimate with someone I don’t feel some connection with. I guess I must be old-fashioned or something.
This blog is short and has no real reason for being, just me rambling on a bit. Hope you liked it anyway.

It’s been a while since I sat down to write something to for my blog. While I had a lot to say, not much of it had any relevance for people other than myself. This last week I finally found something worth voicing my opinion about.
As a member of the couchsurfing community, I’ve been following a thread about whether we should tell our guests that we’re gay or not. There are nearly as many different opinions on the matter as there are participants in this whole thread. This thread was started over a month ago and is still going on.
This had led me to ask myself my personal reasons for volunteering personal information or not. When do I tell someone my nationality, ethnicity, age or sensual preference?
It has taken me over a month to finish writing this blog, because I couldn’t answer abovementioned question for myself. I kept coming up with different answers for different situations.
In the end I remember something my mum taught me. I am who I am, and those who don’t like it can take a hike. This in no way means that I set out to antagonize. I still think it would be foolish to go into a highly bigoted country, or city, and rub my sexuality under their nose. The same goes for people. People who are very bigoted or highly judgmental, don’t go past being acquaintances.
By no means do I kid myself into thinking that alert people will mistake me for being straight, I’m too much at ease with myself to hide my true self. I *do* turn my head to look at hot guys, just like a heterosexual man would turn and look at the ladies.
On the other hand, I’m sure that this might come as a shock to some of my readers. I’d say, you have to be pay more attention to what goes on around you.
In the end, my conclusion has to be that you have to be yourself and don’t allow anyone or anything to pressure you into any uncomfortable situation. It also takes some courage, to get the hell out of dodge when things start going pear-shaped.
