Gay Bars and Pubs in London

Gay Dating is fun, and hey why should not it be? But although you are looking to reach a new level with your partner, past courting? However, there are a number of considerations before taking dating to the next level. Perhaps consider the following:
O Do you have an equal say in how the relationship is going? Are your opinions heard?
O Compatibility- Do you get along and have fun together. Does your boyfriend enjoy the same things as you? Of course they do not have to be in to everything you are into, but do complete opposites really attract?
O Power and Control- You should be your own person, and should never have to ask permission to do anything in your life. If you are being controlled, then you should get out of the relationship.
