Somewhere there had to be a companion for him, just waiting. His dream man wasn’t in all the places he had fruitlessly checked, like the bars, backstage, and in his office. But he was out there, and like Ethan, he too was pulling the covers up by himself and thinking the answer to the riddle of how to escape a solitary existence was just within reach.In VGL Male Seeks Same, Ethan signs up for a dating site and adds a recent picture to his profile ... and waits and waits for responses. But when Ethan replaces his profile picture with that of a gorgeous silver fox, those emails start rolling in. The story has a lot to say about perceptions and expectations and "what it feels like to be loved for oneself, warts and all." I really enjoyed this story, giving it 4 stars.
All of us are wounded creatures. Each and every one of us is, in some way, broken. Yet how many of us see that wound or that brokenness as a gift instead of a liability?While at first Status Update seems an unlikely fit with the other two stories, it brings completeness to Ethan's story, and is not an end but a new beginning to his search for love. It is beautifully written and I give it 5 stars.
... love, real love, was never about what was on the surface, but the heart and kindness lying beneath the façade.
