So if you really like this guy, at some point you should open up more of your world to him. But I think most of the things that apply to heterosexual relationships have resonance with same-sex relationships.Question from Fran in San Fran: You don't mention a lot about homosexuals dating. Of course there are some differences, and I would be sensitive to those differences. Join singles groups that do the activities you love.There's always a little bit of time if you look for it and prioritize.
Question from Barbara: I'm currently dating a gentleman very sweet in every aspect. It is very intimate to let someone into your home and it may set up expectations for a fuller relationship that you're not ready for.
We both are widowed, and we have gone out, but I'm not ready to invite him into my home. Still, there is an arch to relationships: They either get more or less intimate. It hasn't been clear that someone was asking the question about a gay relationship.
On the other hand, if you went with a buddy, you could have fun even if there was nobody interesting there.
So if you have a friend who will make any trip interesting no matter what, then give it a shot.
I'm trying to find someone who will accept me and my kids. Question from Betty: What attracts a mature male to a mature woman once the hormones have stopped?
PS: He likes her wisdom, her energy, her self-knowledge, her acceptance of him.
And it's easy to grow apart because you're not sharing day-to-day life.
That said, I know people who had HUGE distances between them and survived that and ended up committed and together.
I think people should go out with the people they are attracted to.
