Do you believe that gay relationship can last for eternity? Keeping your primary relationship healthy, positive, supportive and together isn’t easy. But it can be done. Here are ten tips on how to make your gay love last forever.

Practice forgiveness

Resentment, anger and blame are normal reactions when your loved one does something hurtful. Without forgiveness, however, little hurts as well as betrayals can tear a relationship apart.

People who don’t forgive often have problems maintaining positive feelings toward their partners. But partners who move toward forgiveness are better able to maintain their connection because they make a conscious decision not to dwell on the mistakes their partner has made.

Immortalize your love

Humans may be mortal, but powerful words and stories about them can become immortal. To immortalize the love you have for him, write a poem, compose a song, or even write a book about it. Your physical body may die, but your quantum information may live forever. Besides, isn’t it romantic if your loved one can read your literature or listen to your music?

Open to trying something new

A relationship thrives when both people are in touch with a lively, open, and vulnerable side to themselves that welcomes new experiences. We don’t have to love and participate in everything our partner enjoys, but sharing new activities, visiting new places, and breaking routines often breathes new life into a relationship that feels invigorating to both people.

Arguing is good, too

Yup, fighting is okay. Even about little things. Yes, really. According to the scientists, couples who complain to each other the most, and complain about the least important things, end up having more lasting relationships. In contrast, couples with high negativity thresholds—they only complain about serious problems—are much more likely to get separated.

Be realistic

Every long-term relationship will have its share of disappointments. But learning to look beyond a particular bad patch to see your partner objectively and lovingly can pull you through.

Remembering and nourishing memories of happy times you’ve had together can help you get past irritation and those times when you’re wondering if you want to stay in the relationship.

Learn what pleases your partner sexually

Make it clear that their pleasure is your pleasure, and you want to discover everything about what turns them on. They’ll be happy to have you experiment with them while making love.

Honesty and integrity

Secrets and lies weaken the foundation of any relationship. Ignoring problems (another form of keeping secrets) doesn’t make them go away. What is important is respectful, open communication regarding your feelings and dreams.

Respect for the other’s boundaries, priorities and goals

To avoid a fantasy bond, we have to see the other person as separate from us. That means respecting them as a unique, autonomous individual. Often, couples tend to take on roles or play into power dynamics. We may tell each other what to do or how to act. Or we may speak for and about each other in ways that are limiting or defining. Essentially, we treat them as extensions of ourselves rather than separate human beings.  As a result, we actually limit our own attraction to them.

Support the things that light your partner up

Never stop supporting and encouraging your partner to be the most alive and to do the things that make your partner feel the most like himself…even when those things aren’t what matter most to you.

Be humble

Last but not the least, have humility. Being humble is a simple yet powerful way to make your love last longer. This is because when you keep yourself humble, you constantly create rooms for improvement. So if you want your love to last forever, stay humble and make endless rooms for endless growth. Besides, true love is not envious and boastful, is it? Moreover, humility is one virtue that brings grace and mercy, which can give you great things despite your shortcomings.

Gay dating can be challenging. Most single gay men turn to gay dating apps to help them find a partner, only to discover they are missing a crucial piece of the puzzle: personality compatibility. It’s one of the most important ingredients of attraction, yet it’s not even a small consideration in most dating apps.

Fun Fact: A study published in 2019 titled “Disintermediating your friends: How online dating in the United States displaces other ways of meeting” found that 65% of gay couples met through dating apps. That doesn’t mean it’s always a good experience, though! This is why we highly recommend premier dating sites like Gay Dating Solutions and My Gay Match.

My Gay Match is a new gay dating site that focuses on matching gay men not only on demographic information but a unique personality measure developed by a psychologist. All members are personally confirmed and carefully screened by their staff to prove that they are real. If you’re looking to find a warm and meaningful connection with interesting and caring singles this is the site for you. The gay dating website is currently offering a free 30-day trial.
