How To Become Friends With An Ex
Just because a romantic relationship expires doesn't mean a new connection can't eventually evolve. Becoming friends with an ex can be complex but not impossible. In my latest video, my good friend and ex-boyfriend Kyle Krieger and I share our personal story and what's helped us have a successful friendship post romance in addition to some tips for anyone looking to do the same.
Gay Men & The Shirtless Selfie
Social media let's us pick and choose what we present about ourselves, but how can we tell when it becomes more indulgent and less authentic? In my latest video, I speak with my friend Raymond Braun who previously worked at YouTube and knows a little something about social media trends particularly within the gay male community. We talk about the need to get likes, how a lot of gay men get them, and some of the issues from it all.
