There are no rules! Do whatever you want. It's a great big world and there's plenty of room for everyone and everything! In truth, gay dating is no different than straight dating. Being that people stop thinking along the lines of dating in the 's where gender roles is the woman is the passive one and the man is the dominant one. That doesn't always apply to any relationship, especially now-a-days.
The words rules and gay should ideally never appear together in the same sentence. In a global community that is still conflicted about its attitude towards the LGBT, the roots of being gay expand from a very intimate, personal love to a political stand against an unjust society. As such, the act itself of coming out of the closet is an act of defiance against authority, of breaking preconceived norms, of blurring boundaries that have once upon a time been crystal. Yet, we are all still tied by social convention.
