I am aware that some shows are available on the internet, but I rarely have the time, the interest, or the motivation to watch them. Most of my television viewing occurs in airports or on airplanes, where I do spend considerable time, and occasionally I visit a friend who is a TV watcher and end up on the couch in front of the TV. None of those conversations ever led to a show getting on the air so far as I know, although a few pilots were shot and at least one contract signed.

Organising to catch up can be difficult because he works early and very long hours which leaves him exhausted by the night….

This is a throwaway for obvious reasons. I have a profile on collarme. I actually met a guy, a real live relatively normal kinky guy on there. After about a week, he told me he was married which freaked me out. We discussed it a bit, he seemed to be upfront with anything i asked.
