There are three guarantees in every gay man's life: the moment when you realize you like dick; your first time at a gay bar, overwhelmed by all the hot guys; and conflict with your best girlfriend. (I won't say fag hag because it's retro and rude.)
We've all seen Will & Grace. We know how these friendships work. Gay men and women's relationships are rich and rewarding but also super fucking complicated. It truly is a boyfriend/girlfriend dynamic minus the sex. Many gay men find it easier to form emotional bonds with women than other homosexual men. They come on the faces of strangers they meet on Grindr, but reserve cuddling for their best girlfriends. Why? Because they aren't comfortable with the concept of loving a dude.
