I used to go by a nickname that could be used by males or females. I casually dated a guy with the same name for about a month or so. I had a female fuck buddy that went by the same name. It was weird sometimes when people would say my name and I would be sure if they were addressing me or the other person. Since I never really got seriously involved i. Now I'm married to a man with a very different name from me. Grey area. I'd find it amusing more than anything. Probably easy fodder jokes among friends, I could throw in a little quip about being narcissistic and that would probably be the extent of it.
Assuming I was attracted to her, I'd have no problem dating a girl with my name, or a boy with the masculine version of it. It'd be nowhere near as weird as dating someone with the same name as my brother or sister I'm not sure if I could do that. My cousin, who goes by J.
L, married a woman named Joelle. John DiFool. I met 2 different couples on my recent trip which had this-Jamie and Jamie, and then Chris and Chris tie. Never had met any other couples like that, ever. My name is techically unisex, but considering that I've only met male Shannons twice my entire life, I would find it a combination of odd and off-putting. I'd like to claim I'd be able to get past it if the guy was great, but considering I couldn't when guys have shared my dad's name, I think the claim would probably not hold up in practice.

Two minutes to tell it all it. You even start automatically giving yourself constructive criticism according to how they react.
You think, "The llama joke caused Jessica to laugh more than it did with Daniel. Each time you tell it though, the facial expression of your audience is the same. It's the facial expression of a person slowly realising that your relationship story is no more interesting than a straight bloke talking about theirs. I don't even know what I'm having for dinner yet. You've thought about kids as much as any person your age, so you're tempted to say, "I'd rather have an iPad and a house with underfloor heating. A good side to gay relationships? When you stay round their flat on a weeknight and you can't be bothered to go back to yours before work the next day, you can wear their clothes to work.
Any of their clothes.

Including their boxers. A bad side to gay relationships? You get used to wearing their clothes so much you don't go home. You're then constantly worrying that all of your housemates think you're dead. When doing romantic things you can experience problems.
While having a romantic massage with your other half at a nice spa, for instances, the masseuses, thinking you're just male business associates on a business trip having a massage as a freebie, might ask things like, "So, how long have you been working together? Instead of explaining, "Oh, this is my boyfriend, we've been out for six months, the sex is good etc", you weirdly end up just going along with the "Yes, this is my business associate" play. You're not ashamed. You just can't be bothered to correct them.
It's the same with checking into a hotel and finding you haven't got a double bed. You can go to the front desk to complain, or you can just slam your beds together. And sometimes the hotel gives you two rooms instead of one.
Dating Someone With The Same Name As You
In certain parts of the world, May-December romances among gay men are treated differently than straight ones by the courts. While the legal age of consent ranges from 16 to 18 across the U. In Chile, for example, the age of consent is 14 for heterosexuals and 18 for gays. And it took until the turn of the century for the U.
The porn industry, meanwhile, has made the age differences of their stars a central taboo.
