If you’re a fan of many reality shows, lately it seems that at least ONE man from a series or two has been accused of being on the DL. If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta, that accusation was hurled at Walter. If you watch Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, K. Michelle has accused both Kurt and Mimi’s new man of being gay. Regardless of society’s acceptance of homosexuality, it seems accusing a woman’s man of being gay is an outright sign of disrespect. However, it’s an even bigger blow if the accusation turns out to be true. We’ve seen it with Terry McMillan and Dina McGreevey, both of whose ex-husbands later revealed that they were, indeed, gay.
I often wondered how a woman could not know that her man is gay. While we stereotypically view gay men as flamboyant, cross dressing wannabe females, not all gay men display what are typically considered to be “gay tendencies.” Some gay men, like recently out-of-the-closet NBA player Jason Collins, are your average, athletic, masculine men who date women. Even Jason Collins’ ex said she had no idea that he was gay. So what is a woman with broken “gaydar” to do? There is no sure-fire way to tell if your man might secretly be into men, but here are a few clues that you might want to look out for if you have your suspicions.
Why do men do the things they do? As women, this is a question we will likely never understand. Why don’t men ever call, why is it so hard for them to make commitments? These things fly way above our heads when it comes to the male species, and like the rest of the things on this list, I don’t think we’ll ever figure the answers out.
They say opposites attract. But the truth is, not all do. Some drive each other nuts. Want to know what your ideal opposite is?
I know we’re trained to believe women are more sensitive than men. It’s partially true, and it partially just looks that way because a) men are taught to suck it up and b) men don’t like confrontation, so they don’t always tell you when you’ve hurt their feelings. But you probably have, if you’ve done this:

Have you ever had to tell a guy “Man up!”?
“Oh Lance, you so sens-i-tive!,” so said Charmaine on “The Cosby Show”and shucks Ralph Tresvant made a whole song about being a man with “Sensitivity.” But how sensitive do you really want your man to be? Could you handle it if your man straight up burst into tears? Check out what our rough, rugged and raw New Yorkers had to say!
