Recently, my partner, Sterling has needed some reassurances that I am not looking to be with other men. Now, for me, this is somewhat absurd since I am a guy could never and would never break the trust or commitment I have with him. I love him dearly.
So, we’ve had several discussions regarding this topic over the past few weeks. I know he knows how much I love him but he always seems to focus on what guys in his past have been like and assumes I’m going to be like them if not now, eventually. Why is it that in DC gay men seem to just sit back and wait for their boyfriend or partner to cheat on them? Am I the only guy that can commit to being with my man and stick to it?
It all comes down to honesty in my book. If, for any reason, I even thought about cheating, I would sit down with my partner and talk about it and try to get to the bottom of why I was feeling that way. But, in my case, I’m totally madly and completely in love with Sterling. I can’t imagine anyone else by my side for life. Does he and do we have our troubles? Yes, of course we do! We are human after all. However, at the end of the day, I know that I want to come home to him and his smile. I want to hold him, love him and feel his love for me. He is my man and I need NO others!
I think it’s time for many DC men and maybe gay men in general to grow up! Life is about being happy and from the many Facebook posts and relationship status changes I see on a daily basis, most of you are not happy! Your just blindly sexing your way through life with guys of the moment, trying to steal other peoples boyfriends to satisfy your aging ego or backing away from good relationships because you are afraid that commitment will make you less of yourself and so many other things I will not write down.
I love Sterling. I cherish Sterling. He is my beautiful man and I’m thankful each day for him. It would break my heart to ever hurt him in any way. So, if occasionally due to the way he was treated by his exes, he needs some reassurances, I’m more than happy to give him those.
