I couldn't resist posting this but, Bet.com decided to provide a list of stereotypical things that may or may not suggest that your man is "a gay." Of course, the only way to really know is by asking him about his sexuality, but, in case that doesn't work, here's their guide to figuring it out; very funny:
The Bathroom Rituals
Ladies pay attention to how meticulous he is when he's grooming. The average straight man could care less about what brand or type of prooducts he uses. If your man is concerned about this - watch him. Another warning sign is the time he spends inside the bathroom. If he takes longer than you do, that may be a sign that he's batting for the other team.
My response: Really, BET?
The Diva Fascination
"If your man has a lot Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand and Miss Ross, the Boss, in his CD collection, and let's not forget Cher, then you could have a diva on your hands. And if he sings their songs in falsetto - watch him."
My response: Okay, their may be some truth to this. The gays do have an intense fascination with a fierce woman that can sing. If you do catch your man singing every lyric to Beyonce's songs, beware.
The Beauty Pageant Obsession
"If your man is fascinated with the beauty and glamour of pageants, you should be seriously concerned. If he can tell you what year actress Kenya Moore was crowned Miss USA and the sista who wore the crown before her, then be afraid, very afraid."
My response: Completely disagree. Straight guys check out the beauty pageant to look at the beautiful women in skimpy outfits and hear their thoughtless responses to really serious questions. I wouldn't be worried if you caught him checking this out. However, if he comments on how the dress glitters perfectly in that lighting, ask him what he thinks about the shoes??? Then, you'll know.
The Shifty Eyes
"Ever notice your man's eye wandering from one guy to the next? The next time you two are at the mall or walking around a place where there are some hott guys, you might want to check to see if he notices the same hott guys you notice. If you catch him, um, your man just might be gay."
My response: I'm on the fence with this one because he could appreciate the beauty of a good looking man; I do. Wait, I'm gay, so maybe this is right on.
The Oprah Quotes
"Is he always quoting Oprah or talking
about how Oprah did something amazing? Okay, Oprah is not gay, but many
gay people love her."
My response: Ok, BET, you're
waaaayyy off! Oprah surpasses sexuality; she's the voice of wisdom and
deserves to be quoted. I mean, she says some really profound things.
Oprah says, "As you become more clear about who you really are, you'll
be better able to decide what is best for you - the first time around."
The Fashion Compliments
ladies love the compliments, but if your man tells you he likes the way
your top matches your skin or how fierce your boots are, instead of
saying, "you look beautiful," you might just have a gay partner. Oh, if
he's particularly interested in top designer shoes and other
accessories, um, here again, you may have a gay man."
Try again, BET... Contrary to popular belief, some men do know fashion
and are able to tell you whether those boots match that skirt. You
should value this in a men. He doesn't want you looking a "hot mess."
The Downright Gay-bashing
people hiding inside the closet are usually very vocal about their
distaste and hatred for gay men. They don't want to be caught or be
suspected of being gay, so they would cover their true identity by
blatantly expressing their rage against gay men. They also tend to
overdo this; thus, they become harsh gay-bashers. If your boyfriend is
like that, then he might be gay. As one adage goes, the greatest
homophobe is gay."
My response: This is right on. . . Beware of the blatant homophobes!
The Hot Guys on his MySpace
of the most definitive signs that your boyfriend is gay is that there
are some male strangers in his MySpace list of friends or contacts. If
you have never seen these men or you don't know whether they are your
boyfriend's friends in person, they might just have had their
communication online. An average straight guy won't view a profile of a
man he doesn't know personally, much less add him to his list of
My response: Wrong! Maybe they went to high
school or elementary school together???? Come on, this is a bit
ridiculous! Now, if he's friends with gay men porn stars on Facebook on
MySpace, then question....Although, they could still be friends from
High School or College...who knows?
Here's my final advise, if
you're questioning whether your man is homo, then, chances are he might
just be. Same rules apply with cheating, if you think they're cheating
or have that gut feeling, it might be true. Happy dating!
