    I was expecting something more evocative. That really was as surface-level of an approach to the topic as it gets, when there is quite a bit to work with either by being clever or actually discussing some of the tangential points of concern.

    With that being said, at least I now have confirmation I am not the only aging single gay looking for something long term and monogamous, so it was worth reading.

    Aging??? You're 25! I got together with my partner at age 26 and at my advanced age people comment on how young we were when we got together. You have plenty of time.

    "This gay boy wants to belong to the exclusive club of gay men who are in long-term monogamous relationships. They live among us! They find their partner one day in a crowded room, nest together, and become each other’s mates for life. They pick out antique furniture together at flea markets, throw dinner parties, and become that amazing gay couple that everyone is envious of."

    Story of my life lol. My biggest fear in life is ending up alone, living with a bunch of rabbits, walking around in 95 degree weather wearing a winter coat and singing Christmas songs to kids in the neighborhood.

    I can't believe I actually read this.

    "Sometimes I think of my fifty-something gay uncle in California who haunts his big mansion of a house, goes to movies alone, and trolls the internet for men, and I can’t help but get a little sad and sick. Is that my fate? Is that our fate?"

    Oh, no, fifty-something and with a big house! Comfortable enough with himself to go to a movie alone, and looks for dates and sex through the interwebs. Sad and sick is right!!! icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    Rabbits? Why rabbits? I think I'm going for cats.

    Oh come on now, you are making things sound completely hopeless. Fear not, there are those of us who are waiting for monogamous relationships...despite how few the numbers are. Oh, and that was intended to only scratch the surface I believe. It's pretty light writing, which I find better, since it's amusing and doesn't get people worked up.

    He does make a point though. How do you go from circuit party Grindr loving hookup dude to the monogamous gay couple that throws fabulous Sunday brunches? It sometimes seems a whole lot of point A and B and not a lot of exposition in between. The discussions on here I have found are very helpful in illuminating experiences of others, and giving my guidance in that matter however.
