Do you agree with this statement, guys? Why or why not?

We are bringing this up because we often read about this topic online, so we want to hear your stories and experiences.

For others, being gay is harder because of their life experiences. But of course, there are also other factors like culture, environment, and the law in countries that make having sex with other men illegal much less being gay. Add the society and self-acceptance to the mix and what is hard has become complicated as well.

Anyway, for this particular gay man, being gay is hard, he says and we quote, “especially if you’re not good-looking.” Further, he said, “At this point, I’d say it’s even pointless to try anything. No one is ever interested in me, only very rarely for one-time sex.”

Do you agree with what he said, guys? Why or why not?

Meanwhile, one guy talked about homophobia and how it is “killing him.” He added, “And so many of us suffer under societies that don’t accept gay people and don’t have legal protections for us. I wish I was never born.”

Another guy even moved away from his own country and “abandoned my family and friends in the pursuit of living somewhere where I can be myself.” But being away from everyone and everything he knows, he says, is lonely and scary. Read his story here.

For others, being gay or bisexual is hard, especially for those who struggled with self-acceptance like this 67-year-old man who lost his first love at age 17 because of it. He had not come into terms with his sexual orientation yet when his friend came onto him and his reaction drove them apart. It’s been 50 years, but he still regrets what happened to this day, though he is “glad that times have changed enough that some young guys will not go through what I have. It is easier to be out, it is easier to know how to make love with another man thanks to the Internet.” Finally, he advised, “So, if you find you are in love, be prepared so you don’t overreact or make a mistake.” Read his post here.

What about you, guys? Where are you from and did you also have to move to another country in order to be yourself like the guy above? Did you have to let go of the love of your life because at the time you were unable to accept your sexual orientation yet? Most importantly, what advice would you give to others who are going through these hardships right now? Share with us your thoughts and stories below!
