Mark and Rey fell in love at first sight after following each other on Twitter and Instagram, and the personal trainer and actor talk about what it takes to maintain a healthy long-term relationship in a new clip from Into’s ‘Queer Love’ series.
Said Rey about making relationships work: “So there is a stigma out there that gay men aren’t made to be in long term relationships. I don’t feel like I believe in that stigma. Every couple goes through hardships in their relationship whether it’s cheating or miscommunication – there are going to be times when you’re gonna make a mistake.”
Mark agreed: “I think it’s definitely communication and being able to fulfill each other’s needs. Even when there’s temptation you’ve got to remind yourself, you’ve invested a lot of time in this relationship and would you really want to throw it away for something that’s temporary.”
