What do you do when your family is convinced you need a mate?
From Gavin, in response to The Pressure to Partner:
I say good for you Christian! I am a single 56 year old trans male who gets this “You need to find a partner” stuff all the time. I identify as gay yet my closet friends have suggested that I ought to be dating one of their female family members! When I point out that I am gay the answer I get is that I should overlook the fact that she is female and just have a sexless marriage! The premise seems to be that any relationship is better than no relationship. I am OK single. Sure there are times when I start to feel a little lonely but I just don’t want to have to work around someone else’s needs or interests. I like my life as it is.
