It’s always exciting to enter the honeymoon phase of a new relationship. It’s when gay guys revel in physical exploration and see what interests they share. Being in a new relationship can almost feel like a game. There are certain rules, and not all of them will be apparent at ﬁrst. It can take time to feel comfortable with the vulnerability that comes with loving someone. Here are some tips for gay guys to keep you on a winning streak.
Gay Guys’ Relationships: 4 Basics
Getting into a new relationship is a heady experience. The physical intensity and passion of the honeymoon phase can sweep you off your feet. That said, it’s vital to lay foundations on solid ground and keep a few ground rules in mind. Here are four of them…
Take Part in Their Interests
In any budding relationship, it’s imperative to uncover your partner’s main interests. It’s important to take note of what he spends his time on. Usually, within a few months, you’ll be able to notice two or three interests your partner’s universe revolves around.
Some common passions I’ve noticed over the years include being a foodie, working out, traveling extensively, or heading into the great outdoors. I have nothing against someone adopting a vegan diet. But if a guy wants to try all types of food at the weekend, he’d slowly become disappointed if his partner would rather eat at home.
I’ve always been the type of person to give someone the beneﬁt of the doubt and to try things their way, and you should try it too. However, if frustration or compromise can’t be met, you either budge, adopt your partner’s interest, or jump ship. If two gay guys really like each other, they will eventually ﬁgure things out, creating a smooth path rather than a rocky one.
Define Your Need for Intimacy
Gay guys will almost always value physical intimacy more than the heterosexual narrative. As humans, we’re always evolving and creating bonds with the people we encounter. Be sure to know if your potential partner prefers monogamy or something like an open, polyamorous gay relationship.
As a newly gay man, I was extremely embarrassed and timid about discussing my needs or likes in the bedroom. A lot of gay guys like me that had a rather rural and religious upbringing can relate to the experience I’m referencing. As my confidence grew, I became more comfortable voicing things about sex and intimacy.
Most gay guys these days have a lot of these things plastered on their dating app proﬁles. In retrospect, I found this very helpful as the hindsight of it all allowed me to not waste my time with a simple swipe.
