Love Dhakka

This is a crap culture to fall in love in. I kind of get why people will voluntarily go for arranged marriages. There’s no place anywhere to troll for potential mates. Gay men, you would think, have it easier, but actually, while gay men have a lot of places to find sex, there aren’t that many avenues for true love, or even true-enough love, in our culture. There is, however, a lot of fucking and running.

With straight people, there are more avenues – you can go out on dates and have relationships that are acceptable in culture. But even there, you have to fit a very narrow, tight definition of “girl” and “boy” to be successful, and that success tends to be outward more than inward. Macho guys and girlie girls. No variations allowed.

It’s luck and patience, finding a partner in love, and really hard work sticking together. And I think that’s true for gays, bis and straights – here anyway.

  1. “With straight people, there are more avenues – you can go out on dates and have relationships that are acceptable in culture.”

    Not true, except in certain circles and with certain people. For the rest, it’s still a fight, one that’s usually lost. You’re right, this is a crap culture to fall in love in.

  2. It is unfair to les or gay, isn’t it? However, I notify a new phenomenon, in some countries, as they are more accepting gays and welcoming them, there are more straight people are changed to be a gay. Honestly, thought it is new experience for straight people … it is quit disgusting for me. How you read this situation?
