Dating

Hi! I’m Borja The Gay Explorer and a few months ago I decided to quit my job to travel the world and become a travel blogger. But there’s a plot twist, I’ll be going on a date with the guy in each city where he’ll show me around, take me to his favorite spots and discuss LGBTQ+ issues. Did you ever dream of traveling the world, of learning from people’s life stories and of having a great time while doing so? Then come and join me on this amazing journey. Hey, I’m Borja The Gay Explorer and we finally made it to Seattle!

Right now I’m gonna go to Mighty Doughnut, yeah, and I’m gonna go obviously grab a doughnut for breakfast, get a little bit caffeinated and then we’re gonna go tour around, find a nice place to take a few pictures and hopefully find someone to go on a date with. We finally had breakfast and luckily the sun is starting to come out so I’ll be able to take the sweater out and start wearing my white t-shirt as I usually do. We’ve actually stumbled upon the gay area in town and we’re on Pike’s Street so yeah, I’m gonna walk around here for a little bit and then see where we head next time. I’m trying to go to the market which is also very beautiful apparently so, few videos to be shot in there and then I think we may have a date for later.

Hey guys, so we finally made it to Pike’s Place Market and we’re going to stroll around for a bit. Actually the reason that it’s so famous this place is because apparently it’s one of the oldest continuously run markets in the US and it’s the most visited site in Seattle.https://www.reviewsxp.com/blog/top-dating-apps-in-india/ So, let’s go check it out!

He’s so shy now! – And then we’re gonna go to Tacos after this. – Your so shy, it’s even cute! – So I’ve lived in Seattle for three years now. – Are you husband material? – I’m looking for a husband. – Um, I think so, yeah. – Look at that, cocky even! So you’ve been living here for three years. And before? – I lived in Key West Florida – Nice! You know when once to Key West and it was a great experience however got a sunstroke so I had to be hospitalized…yeah it was a lovely time in Key West but hey I got a good tan which I don’t have now.

And so where are you from originally? Are you from Seattle? – No – So, I’m in Seattle not dating a Seattle-ER – Seattleite, Seattleite. – I was born in Oklahoma, but I was raised in Colorado. – And now living in Seattle, cool! – And what brought you here? – Um… I came out here and a road trip with my best friend. – And then you decided to stay? – Um, well, we moved out here together and then she moved back. – Cool! And then are you ready, I’m from Barcelona, so you’re ready to move to Barcelona and live together there? *Jay nods* Yeah?

Okay cool! Look we actually make a good couple. Don’t we? – You’re my date and you’re abandoning me! – I’m not abandoning you – At least for the date! Jay says that this park is not for cruising, but I think it is. – So this I got in Washington, well actually Oregon but it’s supposed to be the Washington state flower. I got it on my road trip with my best friend. – When you were coming here? – Yeah, before.. it was about 4 years ago almost. – Was first tattoos? – No, my first tattoo was.. – Oh, we go to a new collection of tattoos.

So, this is New York. These are for every city I’ve been to that I get inspiration from. So this was my first tattoo it’s actually the band symbol for Ladyhawke.

There’s more of a long story for that one, I was in New York and saw Eagles and Hawks on all the buildings and I decided to get that symbol. – Cool and the other one? – Seattle, this one doesn’t have as much symbolism behind it, it’s just green because Seattle is known as being the Emerald City. The last is San Francisco. It’s supposed to be kind of orangey/red and it’s for the San Francisco Bridge. – That’s Jays body tour.

I cannot show you my body because I don’t have any tattoos. Sorry for that. Okay, so Jay was trying to tell me that this was not for cruising but…like… This is like a cruising park! – In your mouth, in your mouth!

It’s like a blueberry! – At the end, that was not a cruising path, we actually ended up in the middle of a sculpture. That’s the entrance. Actually it’s a cool one and it’s nice for photoshoots. It’s a little bit more mysterious in here. This is a cool place actually. – It’s good for kissing. – It’s true. – That’s a beautiful guy.

Well Jay is not telling me beautiful things so I tell them myself. – I thought I said something earlier, I think. – He’s such a fast walker, he’s taller than me so I really need you like speed it up. – He’s saying “those little kids are very cute” I think he wants to be a daddy soon. – Someday. – You’re so tall to fit in the camera. – I’m sorry. – No, like this is good, but then I’m barely visible. – Should I walk behind you? – No, I’m always behind *laughs* – I’m sweating *laugh* but this is what we are doing for food. And, actually before I didn’t have the camera on but he got me a flower! He’s so cute anyways he’s a keeper. No! My flower!

Are we going to the gay area? – It’s where we are now! – Oh, this is the gay area? – This is the gay neighbourhood. – So then if we kiss here it would be okay. – Yes, well you can kiss anywhere. – In the city or in the body? – Anywhe..oh! Well.. both! – So we finally got dinner, he took me to a Mexican where there was a huge line and oh, my dish looks very small. I mean it’s a huge bag but then I get it and I’m like “voila” anyways, a lot of napkins as well.

That’s it? I asked for.. – They’re both on the same plate. – Yeah, but I asked for a Quesadilla and then a Burrito. – Oh they didn’t give you a Burrito. – What do you mean they didn’t? – I hope they did. Yes they did!

You scared me. – I forgot the Burritos are tiny. – Yeah, it’s a mini Burrito. Well Burrito, I asked for a *Spanish accent* Quesadilla y un Burrito. That’s with the “R” properly. Anyways, hope it doesn’t fall I’ve been wanting to do that for a while.

Good morning! I’m Borja The Gay Explorer and we’re still in Seattle! As a matter of fact we’re gonna go and meet Jay again, so as you may know the date yesterday went pretty well and I think we sort of like bonded bit.. but yeah so we decided to go out and have breakfast today because yesterday was getting a little bit late, so we both went home and yeah then we thought well since you’re still here what breakfast.

So that’s what we’re gonna do this morning. So we met on Grindr and Jay actually was one of the few ones with a full headshot and posing a little bit, acting all cocky. It was not a like a headless torso and he was actually dressed as well. That’s cute, that’s good. I was also.. well no..I was actually in the pool so I did …I am actually shirtless on my but I still do have a face picture in there. – Hey sexy *Jay laughs* – So Jay does get a little bit shy and nervous once in a while. – Not nervous. – Sorry. – I’m shy. – If I kiss you, is it better? – Maybe. – Just asking. – Should I? – You can if you want. – What do you mean you don’t want to? – I didn’t say I didn’t want to. – Anyways, I’m not kissing Jay as of now.

Hey guys, so we made it to Kerry Park and we actually had a small incident where the battery on my camera finished so we’re filming this with my phone. Sound and quality may not be as good but uh hopefully you can see the beautiful views that we have. Anyway so we’re seeing this sunset over here and now we’re gonna head back home. So this means that this is the end of our date, our date in Seattle with Jay.

I hope you enjoyed as much as I did and I loved it. Did you? – I did. – How much? A lot?
