Gay relationships have deeper benefits that go beyond companionships and sex. Our neurosis, rigidity, stubborness, bitterness can get polished out of our personalities when we are overcoming relationship challenges and dealing well with conflicts inside a relationship. While most people exit at the first sign of conflict or friction, the ones who stay and practice acceptance and letting go can see massive improvements in their general well being.
Acceptance is a powerful spiritual practice. When we accept other gay men as they are, we are training ourselves to accept our own insecurities, mistakes and baggage. When we reject another person, we are actually training ourselves to reject the parts of us that we don’t like.
Spiritual awakening for gay men is important because of the additional stresses we come across in relationships and in friendships. Our families are often ambivalent about our lives, so we need to stay “sane” and strong on our own. This is where spiritual practices come very helpful and powerful. With spirituality, we can fill our heart with the love that we need. By reconnecting to God, in whichever form he exists, we can receive ever-present love and connection that never goes away.
Emotional availability is the most important requirement for a healthy relationship. Without emotional availability, you cannot create trust, safety and acceptance, which are part of the bonding and connecting process. You must demand and require emotional expression from every man you date and put on standby those relationships which show emotional limitation and emotional unavailability. Everything you will experience inside emotionally empty relationship is torture and slow death and you know it!

Today’s uncertainty, economic instability and fear can paralyze even the strongest of men. This is why gay men need to become more selective about their friends. To solve current life’s challenges, we want to seek out those friends who will help us come out of denial, help us do the things that we are avoiding and also help us do the things we are afraid of. Time waste and laziness are no longer an option for successful gay professionals.
Identity crisis can be a challenge for gay men who are seeking deeper connections in dating. The idea is simple – “become the kind of person who behaves in such a way that the result you want produces itself”. Another way of saying it is: “shape your identity so that your behaviors lead you to the result of having commited gay relationships.” Let’s discuss the most common obstacles related to identity that prevent gay men from succeeding in relationships, money and health.
