A recent trip to the Rainbow Shop in Plaza D*mas saw my card getting its 10th stamped. This meant that I had successfully spent 300 bucks on gay-related DVDs. This also meant that I get 50 bucks rebate to spend on anything I’d like.
I chose to get me a magazine called Instinct which featured the cast of Dante’s Cove (Sept 06 edition), a new gay supernatural thriller. Yup, you read right. Gay and Supernatural. I wish that was what they had planned for Supernatural starring my husband Jensen Ackles. Oh, and cutie pie, Jared Padalecki.
Dante’s Cove is also one of the DVDs that I bought so it made sense for me to get the magazine with a feature article about the show, rather than some other magazine featuring a shirtless hunk on a moped.
There was a very good article in that edition about dating and how our actions would later bite us in the ass. It’s called Karma. I found it interesting since I have been having bad karma when it comes to dating and I need to reassess what I had done to break the whole bad karma thingy.
It’s quite a long article so I’ll be posting it piece by piece. A disclaimer before I do. I did not write this article. It is copyrighted to Instinct Magazine.
Dating Karma: Proceed With Caution (by Bob Kasunic)
As they say in life, what comes around goes around. But if you’re a gay man playing the dating game – trust me – it comes around a whole lot faster! (What? So I’ve dated a bit. Don’t throw stones.) So why is it, then, that in the Tao of dating we are all too willing to test the Karmic Laws of the universe, believing that what we do to others won’t be done to us, and then have the unmitigated gall (read: bitchiness) to get mad when it does?
Now, for those of you who think this has nothing to do with you (giggle, giggle), I ask two questions, young grasshoppers: 1) How many times have you told someone, “I’ll call you” when you never had any intention of making that call – even as the words passed your pursed lips? 2) How many times have you sat by the phone waiting for it to ring because he promised, “I’ll call you”? (I’m willing to bet some of you went so far as to call Ma Bell to have the line checked to make sure it was still working.)
Be forewarned: much like that unforgiving fluorescent lighting in your office, Karma’s a bitch! It is inevitable, and it will find you. Maybe not today or even next month, but rest assured – eventually it will. The point is, the more you know, the better your chance are to get it right and not lose the man of your dreams today for some silly mistakes you made last year.
There are four basic Laws of Karma that can help you on your quest to keep Mr. Right.
#1 – Players Get Played
#2 – Karma Trumps Dogma
#3 – Mind Your P’s and Q’s
#4 – Just Say “No… Thank You”
Intrigued? I know I was. Hehehehe.
