    Hey guys,

    I wanted to know from you Guys if you think that the Hetero "Love each other till death"(I am German so I dont know the Englisch phrase exactly) Love also exists for us Gays, Bis. I mean, how often do you hear about loving Gaycouples in theyre 60`s 70`s? And if so, how long have they been together? icon_cool.gif

    I did not have the luck of calling somebody my BF, but when I look in the threads here I read of 5 - 10 Year Couples and thats it. I am sure that some couples may be together for a longer Time, but in the end. Does the Gay Relationship has a date when its gonna be expired?

    So, tell me People. You think that there Is the Guy for Lifetime out there or that you already found him?

    A gay couple who are friends celebebrated their 50th anniversary last year.

    I know a lesbian couple with whom I celebrated their 35th anniversary this past summer.

    I know several couples who are 20-25 years + and counting.

    I think they are just quieter. For many people of those generations, an open long term gay relationship was not only difficult, it could be dangerous.

    Yes, I believe it is possible and does exist. No, I don't believe in expiration dates - only people who don't work hard enough.

    Yes, I believe I have found mine. His name is Iain.

    I know a gay couple in their 39th year, my Doctor is coming up to 20, and I know several in their teens. My partner and I will be together 10 years this January. I don't seen any reason why we won't be together until one of us passes on (hopefully we will go together but that is unlikely).

    Yes it does exist.

    I've been with my husband for 13 years. We have friends who have been together for nearly 40 years.

    My partner and I are working on our 16th year together. Absolutely the love can last forever. We have a great love for each other and our sex life is wonderful too but besides that we have built a history together along with each of our families. We do not have children to bond us together but I feel our family connection bonds us together and serves that purpose. We compliment each other well. We do a lot of things together that we mutually like. That bonds us even more.

    Not only is my partner my best friend but I get to love him, kiss him, hold him and then go to an intimate place that only we share. The emotional and physical connection become one and when you have a connection on a level that is more than just physical it makes the physical connection even that more intense.

    Our foreplay begins in the morning and goes on through out the day with emails and sometimes phone calls to each other. By the time we get home in the evening we can't stand it any longer and sometimes have to connect physically and spill that emotion out every where all over the sheets. icon_wink.gif

    My partner and I will celebrate 38 years on November 1 this year. I cannot imagine living without him. We've grown up together and we're going to grow old(er) together. I have no question we will be together forever.

    But, don't think keeping a relationship together this long is just's a lot of work and a lot of compromise and a lot of love. Look at how many of these threads are "how do I meet someone?"; "how did you find your guy?" When you find him, that's just the first hard part...then you have to figure out how to keep him and not run away the first, or second or even third time things don't go right.

    Forever love is out there, it's just not necessarily the Prince Charming storybook kind we once dreamed about.

    Are you referencing Konstantzusammenschaft? Cause I really like that word.

    Back to your point, heh:

    I think it does, absolutely. I think it's just a bit harder for us, because our dating pool is limited.

    I also meant to mention that most of our friends are in LTR's of 15 to 25 years.

    I'm sure it does, though for me, I can't imagine so. But then, I'm gay, and I think the original ? referenced such existing for heterosexual couples.

    Love is about people, not sex.

    I believe it will last only if you nuture it. If you keep it at the smae lavel it's gonna get old and die. You have to improve your relationship to another step as much as possible.More kisses, more presents, more vacations, more time, and more adventure.

    With my relationship I am always trying to take it to the next level. I'm not satified if things plateau.

    When bordeom sets in your relationship can start dying.
