” there are additional problems that arise from being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning, beyond the relationship troubles experienced by straight couples.
Mars Hallman, a freshman who identifies as pansexual, has had “really negative experience” with some of the pitfalls of LGBTQ relationships, like jealousy when one of the partners is attracted to multiple genders and the other isn’t.“I’ve been in a long-term relationship with people who were always afraid I would leave them for someone else of a different gender identity,” said Hallman. Even when I was completely devoted to one person they would always check over their shoulder, thinking I’m flirting with someone else.”As a transgender man, Hallman is also wary at times of cisgender partners who might not entirely respect his identity.“This goes out to my trans baby gays: my advice to you is if they’re transphobic, run." Hallman said.
“It feels nice liking who I like.” Lindsay Hamilton, a senior rhetoric major at Georgia College and State University, drove up to Athens from her home in Milledgeville Saturday morning for one reason: to attend the 2017 Connect Conference, hosted by the University of Georgia’s LGBT Resource Center.
“Coming to UGA has exposed me to a lot more queer people or people who would be okay dating queer people.”Ashley Waterfill, a sophomore who identifies as a lesbian, agrees that there are challenges in the recognition of other LGBTQ singles.“I think it’s probably just because it’s an insult to assume someone’s gay,” she said, before correcting herself.
“It’s not an insult to me, but some people might feel that way.”When asked about the differences between LGBTQ dating and straight dating, Waterfill laughed.“For me, it’d be so easy to find a guy,” Waterfill said. I would assume it’s a lot easier if you’re straight.”Instead of approaching strangers or going online, Waterfill typically goes on dates set up by her other LGBTQ friends, since she says, “it’s easier that way.”Even when a LGBTQ person meets another single and gets past the phase described by Eydam as “is she gay, is he gay, is it going to happen?
“You don’t have to subject yourself to a transphobic partner just because they’re hot and think you’re hot.
If they don’t support you and all of you, they’re not for you." Eydam similarly expressed some concerns in dating someone not of her identity—specifically, a straight man.“If I were to date a man, hopefully I could find one here that wouldn’t be opposed to dating a bisexual woman,” Eydam said.
Dating deal breakers While love and marriage are on the mind, deal breakers do exist for this group.
The top 3 dating deal breakers for 50 singles are someone who smokes (70%), someone who is not financially stable (63%), and someone who is pessimistic (58%).
“Singles over 50 are confident in many areas of their lives including finances, careers and friendships, but are not completely satisfied when it comes to their dating and sex lives,” Dr.
Robi Ludwig, relationship expert and author of Your Best Age is Now, said.
Waterfill’s said her hopes for the straight community regard how people view or stereotype lesbians.“I would say, don’t assume that all [women] that are feminine [are] automatically straight.
That would be great to start out with,” Waterfill said. Most of the stereotypes around women just get doubled.”Rashad Small, the Senior Coordinator of the LGBT Resource Center, seconds the notion that stereotypes are non-applicable.“You can’t tell by looking at somebody who is queer and who isn’t,” Small said.
Keeping open minds When it comes to dating and relationships, 45% of 50 singles say they’re open to having a “friends with benefits” relationship, and 27% are open to having a one-night stand.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
