Tristan Talks

Well first things first. I'm Tristan Skyler. I'm 17 years old and live in the United States. I started this journal so I could express my thoughts and feelings in words without being told to shut up on Facebook. Besides, I plan on sharing stuff I'd never want my friends or classmates to find out about. That's why I'm telling the rest of the world. Makes total sense, right?

The real reason I'm sharing this diary/journal/memoir/blog with the public is because, well, I'm hoping I can help someone who is struggling with the same life experiences as I am. I strongly encourage comments and responses from you guys, either with your own advice or your asking of advice from me. It's a fair trade, dare I say?

(Click here to read my "Introduction" that I imported from my older blog when I was 16)

So, a little about myself. I'm 6ft, weigh 145 pounds, and have dirty blonde hair and blueish green eyes. I don't consider myself attractive, but I also wouldn't consider myself ugly. I have very low self-confidence, but it's something I'm working on. I'm extremely shy and awkward around strangers, but with my closest friends I'm very open.

Speaking of being open, YES I am GAY. But I'm not flaming about it, and certainly not out of the closet. My best friends know, and some of their friends know, but to most of the world, I try to appear a little less...curved? It's not that I hide it (except from my parents), but I'm not one to announce to the world "Look at me, I like boys and I'm proud!" Truth is, I'm not so proud about it. Yes, I finally got over the phase of self-acceptance, but having grown up in a private Christian school until 9th grade I still have the subconscious feeling that it's not "right". Whatever that means.

Anyways, this is a short introduction about myself just to get things rolling. I'll probably do another entry later tonight about my interests.

Until then,


  1. hey tristan my name is david even tho im 25 ive been bl ever since i can remember i would love to get to know u more

  2. hey tristan. I am Sam. I think we have a lot in common. Im 23. We should chat sometime.

  3. Hi Tristan

    Anything I can do, ASK !!!!



    My hat's off to you. A friend told me about this (Cody@AT) and I'm going to spread the word to my friends and readers (carefully chosen).


  5. Hi Tristan,

    I like your blog. I grew up in the 70's when gay people were never talked about. I was extremely shy with low self-esteem myself when I started college in 1981. College did help some. I am sure you will get over it too. I am glad you have a GSA. There wasn't anything like that back in my time. I am now a youth pastor supporting the GLBT people. Remember that God loves you just as you are. He made everybody perfect. If some people can't understand that then it is their problem. Hope you have a nice day.

  6. You are very cute, no, I mean HOT!

  7. Hi Tristan, I think you are very attractive. I'm a little surprised you don't think you are but then most of the time we don't see ourselves the same way others do. You are attractive and very sexy to me and even your name Tristan is sexy!!!!
