The Trouble with Gay Men is...............

..............they are gay!

Earlier this week I was out for a celebratory lunch with my work pal Martin. Because we both travel a fair bit with our work we haven't had a good catch up for weeks. We swapped notes about what we had been up to. Martin told me how, last Friday, knowing his partner had had a hard week, he had........run him a bath...... poured him a glass of champagne and placed it by the said bath...............filled it (the bath not the champagne!) with flowers and had strewn flower heads from the front door to the bathroom.

Now, maybe I am becoming cynical in my old age, but I can count the number of straight men I know who would do such a thing.....on one......no, no hands! Now I have no wish to offend all you adorable straight men out there, but do tell my I am wrong and you all make equally romantic gestures to your partners on a regular basis! So, let's have a competition, let me know the most romantic thing you have ever done and I'll get Colin Ross to do a poll for the best.................who said I only chat about politcs???!

And if I get the zero replies I anticipate........I think it's about time I got Martin to organise some master classes............

Not sure many of us gay men could match that! Uniquely Martin I think.

Surely not James?! So maybe his master classes should be for everyone....or maybe we should get him to write a little book of hints and tips...............
