Since I was a kid felt interest in my own gender. Of course at the time (I am in my late 50’s) it was something I barely acted upon neither was something “normal”.

Growing up, those feelings became more consistent and I started to feel weird: had I to be cured, what was wrong with me?. I put my feelings aside and tried to follow a “normal” life. Eventually I married and still am, with a woman I love and with whom we built a wonderful family.

My Myth never faded. I tried to “understand it” in so many different ways. I felt like living in an impossible geometry, where ups and downs were all but the same. I became a Grindr addict, looking for… I didn’t know. I had sex with many men that faded away. I wanted a “friend”, I wanted to be appreciated, listened to. I wanted to be complete, I wanted to live an open life to myself. I love my wife and family and feel that the “impossible geometry” of my sexuality should include them, even if there are no any references or models to follow.

A Myth…. A new narrative of my own, an identity that is mine and I have no need to explain it to anybody. I don’t need to excuse myself for who I am or how I feel.

After so much searching, I have found the answer with a married man of my same age, who wants to live a family life as well as his masculinity as a whole.

We are dear friends and partners, we respect ourselves and we are growing together a long overdue aspect of our lives. We feel hand to hand in uncharted territory and that’s more than enough to feel we are in the right side of our feelings,

The Myth is no longer a Myth, but a beautiful reality. We feel privileged.
