I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

¿WHY CAN'T GAY MEN COMMUNICATE EFFECTIVELY IN RELATIONSHIPS?

There’s a common misconception that gay men can’t hold down a relationship or that they jump from boyfriend to boyfriend always looking for the next best thing. We of course know that’s not true. Many gay men are in long-term relationships, have civil partnerships or are married.

The lack of communication was often down to gay men not telling each other how they feel and, in some cases, not being able to communicate the type of sex they want. Perhaps this is just a human trait. Where love is concerned it’s often hard to see the wood for the trees, especially when the trees are yelling at you in the kitchen because you didn’t load the dishwasher. However, it could also be because gay men lack full education around same sex relationships. Anything gay men do hear growing up tends to be focused on heterosexual couples and more ‘traditional’ relationships, whereas gay men often don’t follow this path.

A lack of sex and relationships education could be the reason we often find it difficult to navigate their way out of difficult relationships or unable to resolve issues to save them. Perhaps it’s another inequality that we as gay men face and seek to change.

By focusing on issues such as developing communication and relationship skills, we can establish healthy relationships, which benefit our general well-being and the well-being of current and future relationships.
