I just read an article that listed a few reasons as to why many gay men have problems finding someone. I'll admit that some of them I had never thought about before.
1.They keep attracting the kind of partner who's wrong for them.
2. They're unrealistic in their standards, when they look for a guy.
3. They have weak social and dating skills.
4. They fear losing their personal freedom.
5. They have a difficult time establishing relationships because of internalized homophobia or intimacy fears.
6. They get involved with emotionally unavailable men.
7. They become overly-focused on the flaws of the men they date.
8. They try too hard at finding love and appear clingy and needy.
9. They have preconceived thoughts and notions such as: "Gay men aren't capable of having long-term relationships", "All the good ones are taken"; "I failed at relationships before, so I will again"
