Sexual Orientation, Dating, and Relationships
Part of being human is to yearn to belong, to connect, to understand, and to experience. These basic human yearnings are often blocked for individuals who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, pansexual, or questioning.
External and internal homophobia and other forms of sexual and gender based prejudice can be barriers to belonging and connection. Confusion about one’s sexual attraction can be a barrier to understanding. Fear of failing at relationships or being defective in relationships can be a barrier to experiencing love.
