As part of my attempt to blog more rather than just post pictures of delectable men, here’s a list of things to know about me.
*My real name is Mark.
*Both of my parents are still living.
*I have an older sister and an older brother.
*I was born in Arizona but the family moved (back) to California when I was one. I’ve been here ever since.
*I’m an ENFJ.
*I was a voracious reader as a child. I would read as many as 20 books throughout my summers.
*I was in Boy Scouts. In fact, I’m an Eagle Scout. I don’t support the organization any more because of their anti-gay stance.
*Although I was never very athletic, I played basketball in junior high and backpacked with my Scout troop. I’ve seen some beautiful country here in California, predominantly in the High Sierras.
*When I was little I wanted to be an FBI agent.
*I dislike guns.
*I feel sexier now as a 40-something overweight man than I did in my YTP days.
*YTP = Younger Thinner Prettier
*I’ve already taken my dream vacation.
*I’m an animal lover. I would rather donate money to the Humane Society or a no-kill animal sanctuary than to an organization that helps people. The exception is my annual support of AIDS Project LA.
*Like so many, I fought my gayness because of religious values.
*I once thought I would die by the time I was 40. Didn’t happen.
*I wear my heart on my sleeve.
*I’m an above-average speller and grammarian.
*My biggest regret in life was semi-closeting myself again after I came out to my parents.
*My range of attraction is broad.
*I have several nicknames: Markus, Santa, Behr, Belle. Most have an interesting story behind them.
*I'm a hug whore. If I could, I'd hug every person I meet.
Well there you have it, a short list about Behrmark. I’ll be expanding on these bits in future posts. Let me know what intrigues you most and I’ll start there. BEHR HUGS!!
