My Ex Is Gay

It took an outsider to actually open my eyes to the fact that my ex is gay. No one in my family could have convinced me at the time I was dating him. I guess I had to learn the hard way.
The gay angle really does explain a LOT of things. Like how he loved jewellery and shoes. He knew all the designers and their perfumes.

No wonder he had no qualms about pressing his cheek on every woman he knew. He told me all the time that it didn't mean a thing when I made a big fuss over it. It meant something to me, for the love of God! You do not go around like a single man when you are dating someone exclusively. I can see now it probably didn't mean anything to him because he was gay. There was no emotion involved, he told me as much. But I just couldn't see it at the time. What straight man would go about doing such a thing? That would make him an utter womaniser.

And he never did make any plans for the future with me, for all we dated for two years. His parents were extremely supportive and hopeful that we would settle down. They probably knew their son was gay but hoped that he would take a wife anyway and quash all speculation. I do blame them in part for not letting me know this. But it's all over now.
