Hello everyone. I got this idea for making a blog from reading other blogs about men that were well as confused as I am. My name is Alessandro, I am 24, nearly 25, and confused about who I am. I come from a traditional Catholic family, two of my older brothers are in the Priesthood. I am the youngest in the family and a spoiled brat and not afraid to admit it.

I am also possibly gay. There is a man in my life who is far more certain about his sexuality than I am and I suppose we have been together for a few weeks and have had a lot of fun. I enjoy his company and I cannot say I have ever had a successful relationship with a woman in the past anyway.

Another problem is that I do use drugs. I am not particularly proud of it, but I do (and so does my "boyfriend").

My father has been pressuring me to "be a man" and to find a wife. That is the last thing I want to do, even before I became involved with a man, is get married. I never really planned to.

I feel as though I am trapped between the bounds of my family and my Catholicism and the fact that I have genuine feelings for another man.

Anyway that is a little about me.

Hi there!

I look forward reading your blog. I'm a little excited about it, I find it extremely cool that there is another italian guy that wants to keep a blog in english. We'll have a lot in common!

Anyways, good luck with the task. Later,

Ciao to you, Alessandro! Welcome to the world of blogging.

I saw your comment on another blog and followed your "bread-trail" and found you. Was I surprized!! You had my blog in your link section. I went over there and read your message; thank you. I hope that seeing things through the eyes of a 58 year old man might influence you to be more open - at least *with yourself*!

Good luck with the difficulties you face ahead. I have already bookmarked your blog and will return regularly!

I can't preach to you about using drugs as I occasionally use them too... but please be careful!
