Romantic Relationship Problems

with one comment

While the majority of our calls, chats and emails deal with coming-out and the related feelings that arise from this process, we also receive a large number of contacts from people who want to talk about problems they are having in romantic relationships.  These callers often are not out to their friends and families or have been rejected by their families for being gay, lesbian, bisexual and/or transgendered, and so they can feel extremely isolated.

These callers want to talk about issues that can arise in any romantic relationship: In-laws, household chores, miscommunications, etc.  But because of the pronouns (he/she/his/her), they are unable to share these otherwise run-of-the-mill discussions with anyone in their lives.  It is a true reflection of how alone individual members of the queer community can feel when they cannot share with others such a fundamental aspect of themselves like sexual orientation or gender identity.  It results in not being able to discuss one’s partner, spouse, date or boyfriend/girlfriend.

Do you need to talk about a problem you’re having with a significant other or romantic interest?  Please get in touch with us.  Our volunteer peer-counselors can help.
