    What have you found to be the biggest hurdles or challenges to overcome in past gay relationships that you've been in?

    Cargojock, nice to see you here.

    Adventure is a two-way street, as is communication. Sometimes when someone is very slow to respond, or hesitant, it takes extra patience AND COMMUNICATION in making them feel comfortable in what kind of adventure you want to partake in. At the beginning, they may refuse, or not be overly receptive to it, but I'm sure that if you were patient, understanding and slowly walked him through what it is that interested you, over time, he would have been more "entertaining".

    They call there mom by their first name, "Darlene."

    They only buy Chevy.

    They call their older friend "my pa."

    They call their grandparents "the andersons"

    Uhm. Oh this was all one guy. Yeah. If it's enough to weird me out, then it's pretty bad.

    So I'd have to say...interests. And morals.

    meeting the parents. my dad knows about Kat's "difference" and said if I ever wanted to see a psychologist, he'd pay for it :hs: my mom doesn't know though (she's very closed minded despite describing herself as liberal) and that's a good sign. I'm pretty sure my dad won't tell her either. So yeah, dealing with the 'rents would have to have been the biggest challenge.

    My friends are very openminded about things, and I'm pretty sure that 2 or 3 of them know, but they don't treat Kat any differently than any of my GFs from the past.

    How this would affect my parents in the social life. I live in a very consertive community and being or knowing some one who is gay is a very large no no.

    My dad is a teacher at a local hs and mom works in a law office as a legal assistant.

    Thankfully the area is starting to come around. There is finally a gay bar in my town and it is also in a very socially active part of town.
