    It's the same as any other kind of love. I don't think there's a difference when it comes to that. We might just have more stereotypes and misconceptions in this field.

    Think ours is more romantic, because it's hard to find.. so we do our best holding on it when we get it.

    I think ours is the best kind of love! There's something more liberating about playing outside the rules. We are more open to doing what makes us happy, what keeps us healthy. I think because our kind are already on the margins, we stick together more, too. Personally I see a lot more polyamorous relationships or other kinds of "different" relationships among the LGBT community, myself included, because since we're already so different we're willing to try out a lot more things that our families and societies tell us is forbidden. At least, that's how I like to think about it. Of course we have more than our share of drama and heartbreak as well. But overall, there's nothing like queer love.

    It's really our culture that makes our love special. So, in general, it's like all the others but if you specifically ask about LGBT love in the ME culture, I'd say it's different because we go through so much, with it being such a taboo. Our parents don't introduce our partners to us, we are not celebrated and we are constantly in hiding and paranoid. All that influence strengthens and weakens our love. Love is an adventure that we embark upon quietly, without announcement, and when it doesn't work out we go through our heartbreak without the support of friends (in some cases) and family (most cases). We feel so out of society that our average heterosexual couple cannot understand the complications that can come with being in a homosexual relationship. What makes our love special is the fact that the strength and sacrifice it can ask for is unique to us. But, of course, there are cases when there are heterosexual couples in an unusual relationship where they can understand how it is to love a kind of love that is deemed unacceptable by society.

  • Love in our community is liberating, but hard to find. I guess the bond we have is stronger, because usually it's all based on trust and mutual respect, and this may seem something common with heterosexual love, but heterosexual love lacks trust, as a lot of guys or gals like to fool around. OUR LOVE ROCKS! once it's found, it's hard to be lost

    the worst thing about a heterosexual marriage is, from the survey i did as a part of my psychology diploma 90% of them sometimes don't get their partner. this is to be granted for the fact that, they just got married and they need to build the feeling up.. but even this is true... if there's something comes in between them things simply collapse and wedge them apart.

    gay community love, granted of the same sex, each knows what each other needs. there's somesort of balance and majority of decision are of together rather than he say she say.. and yeah the feeling to declare rebellion against rules are liberating and fun that's why we gays do SnM!
