I find these things fascinating, mostly because I know nothing about dating apps. This one will give you 4 polite ways to reject someone, if you're not so inclined to hook up with them.
Resist going into reasons as to why you’re not interested in someone, as it may come across like you’re criticizing them. You’re not interested, so leave it at that.
Maybe it's me, but saying you're not interested in someone sounds a little harsh, too. I guess there's nothing easy about rejection.
Here's the link where you can read all of them.
New Documentary About Gay Life In 1940s Mid-West
This is fascinating because we don't have much at all when it comes to gay culture or gay history. I can't wait to see this documentary.
In 1996, Story dropped by an estate sale in St. Louis, where he purchased two reels of 8 mm film he found in the home’s attic. The photographer and creative director, then 27, was intrigued by the canister containing the reels, which bore the label “a gay party.” Given the age of the film, he wondered, would “gay” mean “homosexual” or simply “merry”?
I would imagine gay means 'merry.' I'm actually finishing up a new book now that's set in 1940 and I use the word gay several times in reference to having fun. I've also written a few other books set in that time period and it's not easy to find words that actually work because many of the words we use today were not used back then with regard to LGBTQ people. And I will rarely ever use the word 'homosexual.' I despise that word.
In any event, you can read this one, here. It's a very good read.
The documentary is titled, Gay Home Movie, and you can check that out, here. It's the main web site for the documentary and it's worth the click just to see the samples.
