Relationships and Love - Support
An Introduction . . .
Falling in love with someone can be the most wonderful feelings in the world. It can, however, also be one of the most painful feelings in the world. Controlling our emotions when it comes to love can be difficult and a lot of people suffer from great heartache at one point or another in their life. Accepting your sexuality most likely occurred when you realized just how powerful, unpredictable and uncontrollable your feelings for someone were.
Falling for someone . . .
Most of the world has fallen for at least one person in their life who they could never be with. We've all had crushes and fallen for someone who didn't feel the same way and return the love. Dealing with it for the first time can be a really difficult, challenging and eye opening experience. We usually tell ourselves that he or she is the one and only one. It is important to remember that studies have shown falling in love doesn't just happen once.
Finding someone . . .
Being a member of the LGBT community makes it that little bit harder to find someone who you love who loves you back. The ultimate truth is that the world we live in assumes heterosexuality by default. Online dating is becoming increasingly common as a form of meeting people. Naturally being involved with your local LGBT community will open up a lot more opportunities for you to meet people.
Dealing with heartbreak . . .
Being heartbroken can be extremely painful and difficult to overcome but through everything it is important to remember that there is always hope. Heartbreak is something that almost everyone suffers from at points in life. Breaking up with someone can be very hard to move on from, as can getting over someone who you know will never feel the same way about you. However you've been heartbroken be sure not to suffer in silence. Talk to friends and family and get support if you are finding it really difficult. Talking to a councillor will often help.
