Leading a homosexual life is just as normal as leading a heterosexual one. Although everybody's personal life is very different, there are similarities in everyone's. Whether you are white or black, short or tall, straight or gay, the daily routine is the same. The similarities in leading a homosexual life versus a heterosexual life are vast. As a straight person in today's society, nobody looks at you as you walk down the street holding hands with you partner. If you were gay, would you be looked at the same?

All of these things you normally would not do on your own, but are fun with you significant other. Going to clubs, dancing, drive-in movie theaters and getting together with friends, all of these things are activities that both straight and gay people do.

Searching for a house is a big responsibility for anyone. First, obtaining the financing, then the search. Everybody looks at big houses, small houses, houses with basements, and houses without. Is a garage important, or is it not? These are all decisions that must be made. Little decisions have to be made in everybody's life. What dish soap to buy, what color to paint the living room, do you use Crest or Aqua Fresh, Tide or Whisk? These are all things to be considered. Will you buy a couch or matching recliners, why not both? Just because someone may be straight, or may not does that mean they will not have to make these decisions? Everybody must think of these things regardless of sexual orientation. Generally, leading a homosexual lifestyle is the same as heterosexual. Everybody gets out of bed in the morning, takes a shower, brushes their hair and teeth. Homosexuals must work for a living the same as heterosexuals. Gay people eat dinner, so do straight. Although television is primarily geared toward heterosexuals, gay people still watch it. Everybody has bills to pay. All in all the responsibilities are the same, as is the day to day routine.
