Adventures in Online Dating: Tinder Honesty

Being a gay guy living in a city like Tallahassee, dating was a struggle. My enthusiastic personality, ambition and not being picky per se but looking for certain qualities was stifling and off putting to some guys. “Nice” and “sweet” were words used to describe me, but where were “sexy,” “charming” and all those other […]

Confident Vulnerability

Sometimes the doubt and sentiment for the past floods in, and I immediately think about what my morning or work day or weekend would be like if I were back in Tallahassee and not a new city. The nostalgia and desire for what is comfortable overcomes me. Then I stop in the middle of this […]

Laugh, Cry & Look Ahead

Four years in Tallahassee and three years at the Zimmerman Agency came to a close last week. Another chapter for friendships and new adventures await! Last week was filled with many laughs and lots of tears. I had many ugly cries while hugging friends and standing from a whole department. I feel grateful and blessed […]

Turning the PR Page

For the first time I had to seriously question if it was time for a change to my young professional career. During my trip to Chicago last month it was time to decide what was next after graduation. I had to ask myself do I want to go full-time at the PR agency where I […]

Three Years! My Coming Out Anniversary

This month I’ve reached my three year anniversary of being out of the closet as gay and three years feels like a truly special place personally. For the past few months the thought often toyed around my mind of how I’ve never talked to my maternal grandmother about being gay, even though I’ve had conversations with […]

Bold Touches: Eyes Shaded

Last weekend in preparation for travels, I took a break from working on a class project to grab dinner with friends and buy needed items before packing my bag that night. Tallahassee each month hosts “First Friday” in Railroad Square, and there is a vintage store with an array of items. Shopping in vintage stores […]

Bold Touches: Brunch

Sunday brunch is one of my favorite activities to catch up with friends over, especially as a twenty-something. One of my friends interned in NYC this summer, so we decided to catch up over brunch at her home with her roommate. I wanted to soak in all things big city from her, even though my […]

A Spark? The Beginning of Passion?

In my touch of bold nature I have a history of being straightforward with my romantic intentions. I love the idea of meeting someone, saying you’re interested and then going on a date. Easy as 1,2,3. Just that happened a few weeks ago. I worked an event midsummer and met a guy named Stan (for […]

A Return to. . .

Today marks the beginning of the second half of the year and what strikes the beginning of my senior year. I walk forward into the last round of college and think back on junior year. Within this last year, I changed my job and transitioned once again while at the same company. I served on […]

Flirty Friday Date Inspiration: Six Goodies

My luck of actually going on dates throughout college has been sparse the past three years, but I love to try new places by myself or with friends. This has been great for my Tally friends who needed date idea inspiration outside of the typical, but don’t want to be too creative just yet! Here […]
