Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) February 17, 2008
MeetGayCouples.com has launched its new, enhanced social networking platform, re-affirming itself as "the go-to web portal for gay and lesbian couples".
The newly launched Community Center at http://meetgaycouples.com enables gay and lesbian couples to create a free personal profile, upload photos, send private messages, post comments and create buddy lists. Advanced features enable members to create albums with the capacity up to 50MB of photos and video clips per member, write a blog, and create private interest groups within the site.
Already an established portal for the gay couples community, the site delivers a diverse collection of articles, essays, advice and resources on gay relationships, with two new contributing authors for 2008:
- Kort's Korner - A collection of essays on Communication and Relationship skills by Joe Kort, MA, MSW, a specialist in Gay Affirmative Psychotherapy, Marital Affairs, Mixed Orientation Marriages, Sexual Addiction, Sexual Abuse, and Imago Relationship Therapy. Kort is the author of two books, '10 Smart Things Gay Men Can Do To Improve Their Lives' on gay male identity, and '10 Smart Things Gay Men Can Do To Find Real Love' on gay relationships.
- Body | Mind | Soul - From John R. Ballew, MS, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Certified Massage Therapist -- a somewhat unusual combination that attests to the importance Ballew places on the connection between body, mind and soul. His excerpts and teachings focus on Spirituality, Sexuality and Wellness, often with an emphasis on helping men reconnect sexuality with a sense of the sacred.
- The Gay Love Coach - Man4Man Coaching - a collection of resource essays and advice by psychotherapist and licensed relationship coach, Brian Rzepczynski, MSW, co-author of the self-help book, 'A Guide to Getting It: Purpose & Passion'. Rzepczynski holds a Master's degree in Social Work and is a private-practice psychotherapist in Illinois. Among the topics: relationship mistakes; validation; intimacy; rejection; jealousy; understanding each other; the first time; and coping with infidelity.
- Ask Angelo - Angelo Pezzote, journalist, author, and psychotherapist, authors this biweekly internationally syndicated Q&A column. It is a unique mix of hip, fun and useful information with an often humorous and spiritual twist. Ask Angelo has won the hearts of readers in over 89 countries and is also translated in Chinese. Pezzote's new book, 'Straight Acting: Gay Men, Masculinity, and Finding True Love', hits bookstores in March.
Founded in 2005, MeetGayCouples.com began as a local message board for gay and lesbian couples and topic of interest to the gay community. Since then, the site has grown into a social networking forum, enabling gay and lesbian couples to foster new friendships with other couples, many of which have led to personal meetings and on-going friendships. While most member couples reside in the USA or Canada, the site counts member from as far away as China, Europe and Australia.
