I’ve been home with family during quarantine. Seeing my family members (dad + mom, sis + brother in law) going through life together unconditionally makes me question my own life as a gay man and whether or not I’ll ever find true love.

Gotta tell ya it isn’t all butterflies and rainbows. What you don’t see are the really tough moments/fights/arguments etc. Not saying you shouldn’t strive for it if you want, but would caution that any relationship worth engaging in requires a significant amount of effort too that isn’t always seen from the outside 💪🏼

You’ll def find one. It’s prolly not the time yet but one day you’ll. Also if you look around there are people who do love you unconditionally. Maybe your family and friends won’t explicitly say it but they do. As far as finding a SO, you’ll find him one day but in the meantime you should love yourself and be happy. Life is very unexpected and you never know what happen so live your life to the fullest😊☺️

On the bright sight at least you have an ex / have found some sort of love before! There are plenty of gays (like me) who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting someone who liked them back...and therefore have never been in a relationship before

Honestly, love pops up in the most random places at the most random time. 5 years ago a bad thunderstorm blew through Dallas and I left work early and randomly decided to pop into a Starbucks in a part of town I rarely went to, to work on a paper... got on Grindr and found a guy who’s power just went out and couldn’t work who lived down the street! I got there, ended up talking for 2ish hours before we even hooked up, and the rest is history! Been dating ever since. So it was truly just a huge game of chance we met and clicked.

Def isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, but overall we have a great relationship! I always joke we work because we’re both consultants so we only see each other 3 days a week 😂 so if anything the quarantine of being locked in the apartment together since March has made our relationship firmer. Luckily. Haha

My fiancé wants to be invited to my informal happy hours with coworkers. I usually have one that lasts a couple hours each month. None of my other coworkers invite their SOs. She made a big deal out of it and I’m curious if anyone else has had this come up?

I have a very emotional friend who always comes to me with problems, and if I said the "wrong" thing, she tends to get very emotional and yell (or talk really loud by her definition), which upsets me a lot. I pretend to be her friend (just to keep her around) and always tell other people her problems as stories and discuss with other friends. Today she found out and she's really upset. If we have to do a comparison here, I think I am still the better one, right?

Advice re: office crush

I’m a junior and he’s a senior in the same group with ~20 people. He doesn’t supervise me, but we aren’t at our largest office, so we might still bump into each other awkwardly if things go wrong. We are both single.

I’ve been holding my feelings back hard. (He still invites me to group/office outings, so pretty sure he senses nothing weird.) I know it’s hard to find someone like him though, and I wonder if I really should just silently kill my feelings for him?

My boyfriend is not the best at providing emotional support. I’m pretty sure a lot of it stems from him not being able to fully express his emotions when he was younger.

So my brother doesn't talk to me for 6 months.   (I had offered my lake house guest space to my cousin who said yes instead of my brother who didn't know if he could come nor when he might know if he could come, how unfair of me).

On Thanksgiving day mom arrives and tells me that brother might come by in an hour.  He had ignored my invite weeks ago.  (Uh ok, sure).

I’m mid 30s F. Recently started seeing this guy, where he is “good enough”. Good conversations, decent time together, he has a good heart, but nothing about him shines. - not fit (I work out everyday and play sports), meh social skills (he doesn’t have best friends, just few he hangs out with), bit less energy than me.
There is a feeling in me that says “he’s going to be a comfortable life partner” and “he is just good enough, but if I break up I won’t find someone for a long time”
Do I stay?
