Now that everyone is coming out of the closet and bringing their partners to the alter, there’s going to be those high profile gay relationships that don’t quite survive that harsh spotlight. Here’s some helpful tips to survive those moments when you realize that the love of your life has become the bane of your existence.
The course of true love gathers no moss, but the rocky road of a break-up sure does gather some shade. It’s hard enough finding a relationship in this big gay world of ours, let alone maintaining one.

Or…well, we could go on but we’d be here all damn day. By taking a note from these and other failed relationships, we’ve compiled a how-to guide to surviving the end of a high profile gay relationship. Even if that profile is only visible to your friends on Facebook.
