    1. 1.) I told him I didn't want to lead him on and that we should just be friends. He tried to convince me that we should date, but in the end agreed with the caveat that "we continue to fuck".

      2.) A non-tropical island.

    3. All I'll say is that's not a bad guess.

    1. Ha. Not a question, but someone else recently asked me about that. I said long distance running, so I'll stick with that.

  4. If you could make a living doing any one thing - and I'll leave it open as to how broadly or narrowly you want to interpret that - what would it be?

    1. Marine biologist, Tax Accountant, and Philatelist all seem pretty great.

      I don't know—writer, actor or director, I guess.

    1. That'll require another post. I'll write one just for you <3.

  6. I know you have said you don't like the gay bar scene, but I am curious about how active you are, if at all, in non-hetero movements. Are you active or do you plan to be active in non-hetero rights or movements? Are you active in other 'hetero' movements?

    1. Not active in any sort of 'movements'. I don't foresee myself as being a part of any non hetero ones for a variety of reasons. I don't think I'd be we'll received and I don't feel the need to make my sexuality such a large slice of my life, to name a couple.

    2. I just want to know from Nate Oman what the hell not liking the gay bar scene has to with being active in "non-hetero movements". The few times I have been in gay bars 95% of the people there wouldn't know gay rights movement from a hole in the ground.

    1. My job is currently business-related, but that'll be changing in the near future.

  8. I get the sense from some of your stuff that you've at least read or thought about postructualist stuff or at least some of your views on gender roles and stereotypes associated with non heteros coincide with Foucault and other bros in that field. What did you major in for your undergrad?

    1. I haven't read those bros too much, but I think we have similar views. I studied a bit of everything as an undergraduate, but my majors were psychology and history.

  9. What stereotype did you belong to in high school? You have to pick one.

    1. My high school had cliques, but they weren't at all like you'd see in some shitty 90s movie. My group was kind of like the smart athletes who liked to party, I guess? We associated with people who you could have called "jocks", "hippies", "nerds", etc. Just typing out those horrifically stupid labels pissed me off, though.

  10. Two questions: Are you a live in the now kind of guy or do you constantly think about the future and what it might hold? 2nd: To add to that, how long have you truly envisioned your future with a guy instead of a girl? I mean really, truly, seeing it.

    1. Neither. I think this gets at another bullshit dichotomy--that a person is either a planner or spontaneous. I have had good luck with delaying gratification and working towards difficult goals, so that'd fall under the planning side, but I'm also prone to taking impromptu trips, do "crazy" things, and generally riding the line of fun-bordering-on-illegal behavior.

      And I've envisioned myself with a bro since high school. I didn't see how it would work at the time, but I didn't have visions of myself with a wife and kids or anything. Unfortunately still delaying gratification on that one...

    2. Not one person is 100% one thing or another. We all fall somewhere along the grey scale of a dichotomy. And even at that, we are all so complex that it's not like a neat straight line from one dichotomy to the next. I get that. Being one thing with a lot of another or vice versa is why we aren't all running around in screaming match fights or getting in traffic accidents by following our guts instead of the traffic laws. Nobody falls neatly into a subsection of an MBTI test.

      But I like the answer.
