First off, I'm not even sure there's a real issue here, but I need to talk about it and I need advice.This may be lengthy, so please bear with me.I've been dating this girl for almost a month and she's absolutely amazing. I was a little nervous at first because I was in a pretty rough relationship for almost two years. My ex is someone I've known forever and we had dated on and off again before getting serious and it was really just hell. So, I don't have a lot of experience.Anyway, my…See More

Lifestyles

Whenever I can after hearing persons talk about the "gay lifestyle," I share my take on the "straight lifestyle": When talking about the "straight lifestyle," who are you talking about, Hugh Hefner or the Waltons?  Both are straight, but they certainly have different lifestyles.Usually when I talk about acceptance of GLBTQ+ people I am not referring to the wild, outlandish persons that so often appear at events.  I'm usually referring to the ordinary people who live in a house with a dog and…See More
