This little short story has explicit M/M content but it is not erotic.
It is not exceptionally well written (some grammar flaws here and there) but it manages to capture a precise, eloquent snapshot of the life of a -presumably- thirty something/middle-aged gay man when he realises he has settled for an unhealthy relationship instead of looking for a man who really loves him.
It is short, concise, fluid. The mood is not cheerful but it never becomes too heavy or depressing.
A good job.

Interesting!

This isn't a typical HEA in the usual sense but this is a total HEA for this guy. I'm glad it ended the way it did and that the MC realized life could be better. Would love to know more about the MC and where his new found freedom brought him.

Really enjoyed this short story about a man reaching a moment in time when he realizes his relationship no longer works for him and that he deserves better. There's no romantic HEA/HFN just a sense that his life will be better going forward. I would enjoy reading about that future.

Interesting story about a guy who realizes what he is missing in his current relationship after visiting a gay bathouse and having an encounter with a guy who shows him there really are guys out there who want the same things he does.

Very short story that doesn't really end with a HEA ending. Bit of a slice of life depiction of discovering you don't have to settle in relationship.

This was a sweet/bittersweet short about a man coming to the realization that he deserved more than what he had. It wasn't necessarily a HEA ending, but more a WBH (will be happy). Nice piece.
