I take the opposite approach: Those of us born to heterosexual parents are simply not like them. The stuff that makes relationships strong — no matter what your ages are — are when you both find something that you like to do together. To act like the daddy I never had. The third photo of the guy in the cop costume with the beard and buzzed head which are characteristics that make a guy look older is probably mid 30s and the muscle guy next to him is 20 something.
Last week I attended the birthday party for a great friend of mine.
I'm doing an internship in DC; he's in San Francisco working his big boy job. He's the first man to shower me with full, unadulterated attention since my balls dropped. It's a well-earned vacation from the electric stress of school.
Sometimes its the love.
