often times i feel like very invisible.
no one tries to get at me.
it can feel like you are unwanted and lonely,
but i see i’m not the only one going through it.
magic johnson’s son,
shared how dating as a gay male in his life is difficult.
this is what he had to say via “the daily mail”…
EJ Johnson has said it’s not easy for him to date.
According to the reality TV star, 26, people just want to get close to his basketball icon dad Magic Johnson, 58, he told Jada Pinkett Smith, Adrienne Banfield-Jones and Willow Smith on Red Table Talk.
‘It’s always been a struggle. There’s so many factors. First of all, the celebrity thing — who are you here for, are you dating me or are you trying to date my dad?’ he said.
‘These men either just want to be there for one thing and then don’t want to stay for the real relationship part, or they just want to ride the wave and be bougie and go out and have their picture taken and do all of that.’
Smith asks him if he has introduced any beaus to Magic.
‘I have not, because every time I would be ready to something happens and then I’m like, “Okay,”‘ he said.
i have a question...
Is Magic that big of a deal that gay males want to meet him?
sure they can discuss how he contracted hiv,
but most males want to talk about his glory days in basketball.
is it enough to use ej just to have that riveting discussion?
i’ve realized that masculine or feminine,
it’s interesting how we may all be different,
but most of us share the same struggle in this life.
even if you are rich af,
you are still looking for someone to call your man.
from the outside looking in,
i thought it’d be easy for ej.
i always felt really feminine males that are extra,
or the ones who had access to the right circles,
had it easier when it comes to getting into a relationship.
i’m sure it’s easy to (get) fucked…
…but it’s a whole lotta “nope”.
it’s always something.
lowkey: if only real life dating was like how jussie smolett met his alleged boyfriend.
i’m sure jussie went through it,
but he found someone that stuck around.
