Self-worth is a key factor in long term monogamous and healthy intimate relationships, gay or straight. Kids will pass off sex for love because they don't have a healthy self view to believe they can expect and demand both (no sex without committed love).
It's true. I don't have a degree in psychology or sociology. But I do have fifty-plus-years of life experience as a gay man. And I know what I'm talking about when I make a direct connection between low self-esteem and mistaking sex for love.
