Beyond The Lights

Let's Have a Chat (Introduction)
Greetings to all who read, my name is Chris (short for Christopher, but I hate that name, so please call me Chris). Another name you can call me is Panda. Everyone calls me that (except for family, of course).

I was born and raised in Texas. But don't let that fool you. I'm not your typical "hillbilly hick". I have no accent, I hate cowboy boots and cowboy hats and I sure as hell don't like country music. This place was never meant for me. I belong somewhere else, like New York. A city I've always wanted to be in. I don't like the country and trailers. I like the city; Lights, people, and shopping. It's how I've always been, and honestly, I'm glad it's how I am. I personally don't want to be like my family.

I'm a different type of person. I like wearing all black (no, I'm not goth and I don't worship Satan). I love beanies, necklaces, bracelets, chains, belts, clip-on tails, combat boots, and converse shoes. I also love different colored hair (no, I'm not scene). I honestly want rainbow hair some day. I'm proud with the way I dress, and I'm definitely not ashamed of it. I've always been about standing out of the crowd and being your own person. If you saw me with my family, you'd think I'm adopted. Trust me, I look nothing like them nor do I act like them.

I'm a proud gay man. Currently single and not looking. I told my whole family, including my very close friends, that I was gay when I was 11 years old. My mother took it very well, because she loves the LGBT community. My friends were very accepting of it. My father didn't take it too well. He would say things like, "You're not gay" and "It's just a phase". Yes, the things he said were very discouraging and made me feel as if though he would never accept me. But I wasn't going to let that put me down. I was going to show him that it was the real me. It was who I am and who I was born to be. Eventually, he stopped saying all of those hateful things, because he realized it was me. Nothing was ever going to change.

My music taste consists of anything, except country and rap. I'll literally listen to whatever appeals to me, but for some reason, country and rap have never impressed me. As I said before, I don't belong in Texas.

Now for my Gaia story...

I joined Gaia sometime back in '08 and it feels like I've been on here forever; I was introduced to the sit by a used-to-be friend who kept nagging me to get it. So finally, I decided to give it a try. I've been hooked ever since. It's not a fancy site, but it helps kill time and I honestly find it to be a lot of fun.

I've met some amazing people on here, like my close friend/sissy, Mady. I've known her since day one of my Gaia life. She has always been there for me when I needed her most, and she helped me a lot! I can honestly say she's the best person I've ever met over the internet. Literally.

Over the course of the past years, I've grown very attached to Gaia. Nothing else compares to it. I love logging on and seeing the great, amazing community work together and have fun. It's amazing seeing how far this place has come, and it's gonna be a complete wreck watching it have to go. But I suppose I have a few other sites to turn to if that day ever comes. They just won't be as fun as this.

There's really not much to say about myself. What's for you to know is for you to find out. Add me, hang out with me, do whatever you please. But just know this: I don't mess around with boring people. If you can't hold a conversation, don't even bother with me. That's my only condition. Other than that, I'm sure we'll get along great!
