Is a normal life possible for me ?

Unread postby Nice guy Mark » 26 August 2019, 05:25

I am a 22 year old gay male that lives in the middle east. In case no one knows being gay in the middle east is punishable by death so being gay there is a death sentence if they find out . I will get straight to the point is a life with that special someone possible in my future or should i just move on and never date or marry a man?

For sure you will never marry and have a legal husband. If that matters.

You will always be looking over your shoulder.

Have you considered re locating? While your young.

Yeah my suggestion is always to just leave.

The choice is yours but also requires a choice to stay or leave as per the two replies above.

Only you can answer that question, as it all depends on what you are willing to do to make that possible future happen.

Where you are, the cultural climate won't accept you as a gay man, and that's probably not likely to change any time soon unfortunately, so I agree with the other responders.

If it were me, I would be looking into studying overseas as one possible option to pursue.

That's so sad and I'm very sorry you're going through that. Anything's possible but what you want is never a possibility where you're currently at. The only way it could possibly happen is if you relocate. I wish you the best of luck and stay safe dude! *hugs*

I worked in Saudi Arabia for a year in my early 20s. Yes it is possible to have a thriving sex-life there but the fact that I was hiding who I was and the fact that I wouldn't be able to date a guy got to me in the end

So if you want a future and happiness my advice ks to relocate. You are still young so look at studying abroad

You could relocate.

It's not possible for everyone, of course, but you could try.

Human beings haven't always had safe zones in history but they have done normal human things (like falling in love as a gay man) regardless.
