A “less is more” mentality is best when you’re still in your formative stages: don’t make yourself fresh meat on the human buffet that is app culture.less Get comfortable being single This is one is never too late to learn, but if you can, get a head start now.LGBT relationships can be especially linked to a teen’s sense of self and purpose, but rest assured, you’re not a bad gay if your first gay relationship ends.You will go on to be happy and heartbroken many times in your dating life, but the good news is you only go through the pain of your first breakup once.In the years I’ve spent dating, my friends have remained steadfast and consistent support and, if you play your cards right, so can yours.less Hands off your partner in front of the family This goes for all teens gay, straight, bi, etc.There’s nothing less appealing than pawing your special someone in view of their parents (or yours).
It wasn’t until I was in my twenties that I realized what a huge loss this could be.
I know I previously said it’s a good idea to seek out trusted LGBT adults when you have questions, but it’s also a good idea to be suspicious of any adult who gives you attention that feels a little too…
let’s just say “intimate.” As you get older and more experienced, you’ll be able to spot the users and the abusers more easily, but when you’re young you can be a much easier target for adults with less than honorable intentions.
Get to know who you are as a single person and you’ll be much better suited to knowing what makes a good partner in the future.
less Choose friends over lovers every time This is another one a lot of teenagers learn the hard way.
