I am not a psycharist. Over a twelve year period, I have talked to nine people who have been in love affairs with both same sex and opposite partners. They all agree that their love affair with the opposite sex partner was somehow more profound than with their same sex partner. All nine persons stated that they felt more tightly bound to their partner of the opposite sex. Is there anything in Psychological literature that explains why this could be? Out of the nine people, three were gay men. Four were lesbian women. The final two were a mam and a woman that was heterosexual.
