JayPride42 saidWhy do so many people seem convinced gay men want a mirror image of themselves in a partner?.
Take a look around you. How often do you see couples that are a nerd and a jock, a pretty boy and a gamer, a scuffy guy and a queeny guy..etc? mostly i ever see guys that are very similar. Several times I've seen some couples that look so similar that at first glance I would say they are bothers!
But the fact of the matter is, when someone is into health and fitness...that is generally reflected in other areas of their life, so if their partner can't at the very least be a part of that in some way...
To me it is about being on the same wavelength as much as possible.
I understand the whole 'opposites attract' but for me that works only sexually (I'm brown and prefer white guys esp the pasty white type
) In all other aspects the more in common the better.
