HI GUYS,
 
THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS BEING SENT TO YOU AS A REQUEST TO PARTICIPATE IN AN IMPORTANT SURVEY THAT IS PART OF A BOOK RESEARCH PROJECT BY DR. RICHARD TRAVIS. I RECOMMEND AND ENCOURAGE YOUR PARTICIPATION. THE DOCTOR WILL BE LEADING A DISCUSSION LATER THIS SPRING AT  ONE OF OUR  WEDNESDAY GROUP MEETINGS TO DISCUSS THE RESULTS.
 
–THANKS, JOHN RAMOS (Goldleaf69@aol.com)
 
Dr. Richard Travis, a prominent therapist in our community in Fort Lauderdale and author of several self-help books is currently putting together an advice book for gay teens. In the book he will be posting advice given from some of us older and perhaps wiser gay men. The topics include such questions as:
 
1. What do you have to tell them about sexually transmitted diseases? 
2. Have you ever been bullied? Describe the incidences or circumstances.
 
If you like to take the time and answer the following questions, and
email the responses directly back to Dr. Travis,  it would be most helpful in giving vital advise to many young people who would benefit from your life experiences. 
 
Also, if you would like to call Dr. Travis directly with more details about your responses, his contact information is listed below.  Leave your name and phone number and he will return your call to discuss the survey.
 
Thank you for your time and effort. This book promises to be helpful to many, many confused gay teens. Part of the proceeds are donated to young LGBT groups.

Book Description

 Publication Date:October 26, 2012
Where are all of the healthy gay role models? Are there healthy gay relationships out there? Can a single gay male find a mate who is emotionally available? Gay men are entitled to have good, healthy friendships and good, healthy relationships.Gay men have often been perceived as “damaged goods” and therefore often act out in self-abusive ways by choosing inappropriate or unavailable men to date or befriend. This book helps identify personality characteristics or behaviors that get in the way of successful relationships. There is a need for all of us to take responsibility for what we bring to the relationship, and be totally conscious of what the other man also brings to the relationship.This book addresses the struggle that gay men have to just find safety in home, employment and relationships. It also focuses on the different needs gay men have, as individuals and as a group. So this book is about working at being conscious; conscious of our own behavior and needs, and conscious of other’s behavior and needs.There are also poignant thoughts and quotes from gay men in successful relationships given to those who might benefit by their wisdom and experience. There are also many suggestions from gay men, who were surveyed, as to how to seek out a healthy date or potential partner.You will read about what kind of relationships seem to work better than others. You also will read about gay codependent relationships and how difficult they are. There is also a section describing relationships with 2 men, 3 men and 4 men. You can also read about the gay men who choose to have a relationship with no men.

This book will help guide you to look at you and others, to help lead you to the kind of friends and relationships that will enrich your life, and make you thrive and grow. This book addresses the struggles and the hope that gay men have, to just find safety in home, employment and relationships. It also focuses on the different needs gay men have, as individuals and as a group. This book could be the one book that you read to get you moving toward positive change, and getting or keeping that “special someone.”
