5 Things Same-Sex Couples Just ‘Get’
Tired of your relationships not working out? Maybe you’re dating the wrong kind of person.
Men and women sometimes just don’t understand each other. Even from an early age, often boys hang out with boys and gravitate toward … but why? Because they GET it. But when dudes mix with chicks, there’s always that slight gap of disparity in understanding.
The same rings true in relationships. So why force yourself to a future of misunderstanding?
Studies have proven that same- relationships are not only healthier and more communicative, but overall longer-lasting than heterosexual ones.
Want to know why? Well check out these 5 reasons same-sex couples work better than their heterosexual counterparts:
1. You can bond over gender-specific issues that someone not your gender would never understand.
Men’s issues are very different than women’s. The fact that you and your partner in a same-sex relationship can bond over these problems — the way a heterosexual couple couldn’t — is powerful. “It’s easier for a man to understand the experiences of another man,” psychologist Julie Gottman told Politico Magazine, “and a woman to understand the experiences of another woman, than for a man to understand the experiences of another woman, and a woman to understand the experiences of another man.”
Case in point: TAMPONS. We (as men) usually don’t get those. Or maybe he says he does (lucky you), but the fact of the matter is that in a same-sex relationship, both people can understand the gender-specific struggles of their other. This in itself creates a mentality of deeper relation and further compatibility.
2. They can get you where you want to be in the bedroom.
Sex. Let’s be real, sometimes your other just doesn’t “push the right button.” In same-sex relationships, there’s a mutual understanding of where the “no-go’s” and the “hell-yeahs!” are. Male and female anatomy are different, but in a same-sex relationship, it’s like you both took the same course and know exactly how to ace the test.
Men know where they want to be touched, women know just how they want to be pleased. In same-sex relationships, you both know how to pleasure your partner because that’s how you like to be pleasured too! Not to mention eliminating the risk of accidental pregnancy. So there’s that.
