Morning Quickie: “He Keeps Asking for a Break”

I have been in a relationship with a guy for 10 months now. Four months ago his brother went to jail for protesting against the government. He is still detained.

“I’m Torn Between Two Lovers”

I'm a gay man and I'm torn between two lovers. What do I do? Which one should I choose? Why do we have to choose? Can't we love two people at the same time? As much as we want to love two people at the same time, society doesn't look at it in a positive [...]

I was seeing this amazing guy for about four months. Everything was great. He told me he had feelings for me and I felt the same way. Then, out of nowhere, he started ignoring my calls and texts. I demanded an answer, and he said that, even though he cares for me and has feelings [...]
