Meet The Cramuels … a gay couple who found love the traditional way (at least in the 21st century) through a mobile dating application called Scruff.
We kissed many frogs before we found true love … but isn’t that the case of many couples? Love is not an easy game to play .. and more often than not it can get quite messy and painful.
Many gay men think that finding true love in the gay world is almost impossible … a world addicted to instant sexual gratification, quite a picky attitude and a certain lack of romance. It certainly is disheartening when you receive a first message via a dating app from someone saying “what are you into” or “do you want a picture of my cock” … especially when you are looking for true love. When you receive constant messages like that you feel like giving up on love and just play the game like everybody else does and join them in swapping naked pictures. You just give up being your true self and adapt to your surroundings.
We won’t deny that we haven’t fallen into that trap many times until the day we found each other.
When we first met online we thought this would just be another quick romance.
But as we both stood up for what we really wanted, we noticed we actually wanted the same thing … to be in a loving and stable relationship.
We discovered we were very compatible and that we enjoyed each other’s company very much … so much that we moved in almost right away!
Although we would advise others not to rush things and to take your time, in our case it just felt right from the start. What we are trying to say is “there’s no right or wrong … as long as you follow your gut” … and yes … don’t be afraid to take the risk to open your heart to that special one.
Like the saying goes “it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all”. We both have been in very damaging relationships and got badly hurt in the process. But we never stopped believing that true love would one day enter into our life.
The secret to finding true love is to be patient, to let go of the past and the fears and to whole heartedly believe that somewhere there’s a special someone for you.
Through this blog we would like to share with our readers that true love does exist within gay couples. Yes, genuine and stable relationships are achievable. Don’t lose hope and fight for that love! And for those ones that are new to the gay world or are afraid to come out of the closet … we know it can feel quite daunting (and perhaps a little dirty) … but there’s a beautiful side to it as well. Being gay isn’t all about your sexual preferences … it is about being unique, diverse and creative. Don’t be scared to be who you want to be. You are beautiful just the way you are.
We will be sharing parts of our lives as a gay couple … and ultimately you will be able to judge for yourselves whether true love is possible between two men.
We hope you enjoy our blog.
With true love,
The Cramuels (Craig & Samuel)
