All those shitty nights we spent arguing over nothing and calling each other horrible names, had just left our minds.
We both realized that it was the alcohol that was ruining out relationships.
A few months ago my boyfriend and I were on the verge of breaking up.
We’ve been together for 3 years and the last year or so our relationship started to become really toxic.
Our strategy seems to be the same in these situations.
We don’t realize that we’re selling ourselves as a friend rather than someone we’re romantically interested in, so how do we fix it? ” As gay guys we seem to worry about this no matter how much pride we have in ourselves.
At some point I’m sure we’ll be going out a few nights a month, but right now we’re just focusing on ourselves.
And the times we didn’t go out friends would come over and we’d drink and watch TV.
Every night fighting about non-sense seemed to be a daily routine.
Thanks for letting me share this story, and hopefully it will help someone else’s relationship. Shy gay guys in the community are terrified to approach men—I’m one of them!
It might look like we’re extroverts but when it comes to matters of the heart, rarely do we have the courage of our convictions.
