One of the most torturous symptoms of the breakup blues is struggling with being able to let go of your ex. This is especially the case when you are the partner who didn’t want the relationship to end, but even initiators of a relationship termination go through this as well. You know how it is. Your mind becomes preoccupied with thoughts of him that just won’t go away. You can’t stop thinking about him and what he’s doing, let alone who he’s with.

One of the most common gripes I hear from gay men is the complete lack of social etiquette or regard they feel they receive from dating prospects on the singles circuit. This is disheartening. As an already disenfranchised and stigmatized community, why can’t we treat each other with more compassion and kindness? We are, after all, in this together. Whether it be fear of rejection, hurting someone’s feelings, ignorance or blatant bad manners, we all have a responsibility to treat our fellow gay compatriots with common courtesy.

While our gay community is enjoying some well deserved heightened acceptance of our identities and relationships in society nowadays, the process of coming out as a gay man to ourselves and others can still be a difficult and painful journey. Coming to terms with our sexuality means facing the fact that we’re different from the norm and confronting fears about losing relationships with family and friends if they choose not to support us. It’s a form of grieving process that also involves working through feelings of shame, guilt, and fear as we work to combat internalized homophobia. But the benefits are great for those who dare, for living a life of authenticity parallels no other. To be “out” means to be free, spontaneous, uninhibited, and unafraid of judgment.

So let’s say you’ve been dating this great guy for a while and then things start to go south. Maybe you’ve been arguing a bit more. Or perhaps you feel a bit more distant and disconnected from each other lately. Or maybe the sex isn’t as good as it once was. One of the most excruciating dating dilemmas is having to make that difficult decision of whether to salvage a relationship or terminate it. These situations are made that much more torturous when you recognize that your partner is really a “good catch” and that you have a lot in common with mutual attraction. But yet something seems off and you’re really torn about what to do, not wanting to make a horrible mistake that you’ll regret for the rest of the your life.

Here is an interview I did with Harry Faddis on his radio show “The Quest of Life” where I share some insights into some research I did on the sexual behavior of gay men, including commentary on the apparent decrease in condom use, as well as the roles of honesty and integrity in relationships.

I’ve been getting a lot of letters lately from gay men interested in dating guys either much older or much younger than themselves and questioning whether these “May/December” relationships really work out in the long run. I personally don’t believe age gaps in relationships are as stigmatizing or concerning in the gay community; perhaps this has to do with the smaller pooler of dating prospects available, tendencies toward more open-mindedness and liberal attitudes, and already being more conditioned and accepting of diversity. But in short…yes, they can work! But these relationship pairings can pose some unique challenges that will require extra diligence and commitment to communication and compromise. And with most relationship dynamics, there are many rewards and difficulties inherent in these dating couplings.

One of the most important make-it-or-break-it moments in dating is your introduction when approaching someone you’re interested in getting to know. Since first impressions and judgments are formed within the first couple of minutes (or less) of meeting someone, your presentation during your approach is critical in ensuring that that hot guy you want to strike up a conversation with reciprocates an interest. This means that what you say, how you say it, and how you posture yourself with your body language all carry a lot of weight in how the other guy is going to interpret your advances, and the meanings he’ll attribute to it. You’ll of course want to put your best foot forward to increase your chances of success in charming and hooking him into having a flirtatious chat, and one of the strategies that you can employ in heightening your appeal to him is delivering a creative and witty “opening line.”
