Masculine gay dating

Joe Kort, Ph, D, writes for Attitude Magazine in the UK Dear Joe, I am a gay guy and am only attracted to straight men.

I want a relationship with another man, but every time I try dating gay guys, I'm instantly turned off because they're usually not masculine enough.

I like straight-acting guys, but even knowing they're gay usually puts me off I know that, by only looking/or straight men, I'll stay lonely and single foreoer. ESSEX Dear Pete, Many gay men fantasise about being intimate with straight men, and there's nothing inherently wrong with these sexual scenarios.

But I don't seem to be able to help who I'm attracted to. The problem you're describing is that your attraction to straight men is so rigid that it blocks you from enjoying a genuine relationship with another gay man.

Younger gays can learn a lot about self-acceptance and, consequently, acceptance of others from men who’ve been doing so since before we were born.
