Indulge me Lex you big hunk of gorgeous manhood!:biggrin1: My boyfriend and I have several (actually four) heterosexual couples our own age who seek out our company regularly. It's on my mind since I was posting in the Leno thread about the mixing of hetero and straight couples. With two of these heterosexual couples we find ourselves very friendly socially. In fact they seek us out to dine with them, come to their dinner parties, go on their boat during the summer, and stay "down Cape" at their cottages. Most of the time I make a conscious choice not to read anything more into it than they simply like us. Lately though, I sense that we're a bit of a curiousity and perhaps (just perhaps) it's the basis of the friendships. We were at one particular couple's house for a soirée two weeks ago. The margaritas and cosmopolitans were flowing freely. As we were introduced around the group by the hostess the questions about gay marriage and how we were able to "get along" in this world bordered on the oppressive and invasive. It felt like we (I) was being grilled after a while much as the inquiring faces had the "simpatici" look of pseudo-understanding to them. I'm curious to know if anyone else who's involved in a commited gay relationship has experienced anything similar to this phenomenon. It's not a complaint mind you and I value (no matter what the forum) the exposure we can give to others who'd not usually have the experience of being around a gay couple.
