But there are indeed a few things that LGBT couples face that straight couples aren't subjected to. For instance, there's the serious stuff, like knowing when you'll be safe being affectionate in public. There's the less serious stuff that's still annoying, like people assuming you're straight and just friends. There's some funny stuff too, like how gay couples end up sharing clothes or having to go to the bathroom together. You don't want an accidental fart to slip out when you're in the bathroom stall next to your date after all We're becoming more progressive as a society but that doesn't mean that us gays have it totally easy now.
AMAs should be about:
So here are the things that the LGBT people of Reddit shared on the relationship or dating issues they face that straight people generally don't. It will open your eyes to some stuff you may not have previously thought about whatever your sexual orientation. The women I am attracted to are not the women I want to look like.
I would love to be as thin and delicate as the skinniest catwalk model, but while I admire that body aesthetically, I never want to bang those waifs. I want to bang girls with lovely breasts and curving waists and the kind of thighs that could wrap strongly around my head.
It's just - weird, that the kind of girl I want to look like, the ideal that I hate myself for falling short of, isn't at all the kind of girl I'm sexually attracted to. I'd just like to say we should all accept our bodies the way they are, be healthy instead of striving for some ideal. I can imagine though, that there could be insecurity in LGBT relationships for some people, in terms of comparing yourself to the other.
Cis, straight men and women won't have this issue because their bodies are very different to begin with. Just imagine any time you broke up with someone and later saw them with someone you knew, and add in kinda being into the person they're dating now too as well as still having feelings for them. Or the True Unidirectional love triangle.

It's a vortex of suffering. This is one of those universal things that lesbians and gays complain about, no matter where they're from. Even if you're in a big city, you still probably go to the same few bars with the same crowd or you're all in the same women's soccer league etc. The incestuousness of a small community is an unfortunate part of queer life. There is a very strong sense of culture in the community, some people take it very seriously. I don't participate, not because I don't agree with it well thats a lie, I think most of it is stupid but more like I just don't feel any connection, but some times I date guys who only hang out with gay people and don't have any straight friends at all who aren't women.
This can get kind of "weird". It's kind of the old story of not getting along with your significant other's friends with a strange twist. I'm personally well into gay culture, but I know people who aren't and they have their own reasons. Perhaps they don't want to fit a stereotype or be constricted to one tribe and that's cool, whatever makes you happy.
I think you can do both though, enjoy gay culture and hanging out with other gays, while still doing your own thing and hanging out with whoever you want to. My boyfriend is not completely out, but I love his family. I know they would accept him, but he is afraid. It is difficult because I love spending time with his family.
I don't like being the best friend, though. Another is public outness. I'm very out, but very aware of my surroundings and safety. We are not big guys, we are small and nerdy. Neither of us is muscular or intimidating. I know that we wouldn't be able to defend ourselves in a fight, so I'm always looking over my shoulder before I hold his hand. You'd think in this day and age that everyone who is gay would just be out. But unfortunately it's not true, some LGBT people can't come out to their families for fear of rejection.
It's sad, but hopefully we can become progressive enough that it becomes easier for those people. It can be really tough to meet someone when you're gay because you have no way of knowing for sure of a man's orientation other than by using intuition. Unless you go to a gay club, you just can't know for sure. And unfortunately, a lot of men, myself included, don't like the gay bars. You can form your own view. Subscribe now.

It was a sweltering summer night, so my friend and I were in just our boxers, hanging out in his back house. I start to do it too. It was weird because we just acted like nothing happened.
He turned off the porn and we started playing Mario Kart. Never talked about it again and we were friends for years. Swimming Buddies "One time in high school me and a buddy were swimming in my pool and for reasons unknown my buddy floated on his back, stuck only his dick out of the water and made the jaws duh-nuh noise repeatedly.

So I did the same for a good ten minutes. My mother looked out the window to check on us and saw us both dicks in the air. That was a weird conversation with her later that day. The Undercover Date "I made a really big sale at my job and the entire company was really excited about it. A new hire was a guy that was years older than me and he asked if I wanted to grab a steak to celebrate.

He was a cool guy so I said sure. We had fun at dinner and he insisted on picking up the whole tab. He was talking about how he just moved to town for the job and didn't know anyone else so I thought I'd be nice and ask if he wanted to see movie or something so we did and I bought the tickets and sodas.
