This is 2012 and the dynamics of relationships and dating are operating under a completely new set of rules and a different dynamic.
No longer is it the traditional man meets woman - woman marries man - couple makes children and lives happily ever scenario.
Most would agree that there are so many offshoots of that original relationship template that are manifest in this day and age but what I wanted to focus on was the phenomenon called men living on the Down-Low.
Before you ask me why I chose THIS to be the topic of discussion for this week, let me tell you that out of all of the types of connections that could be made between two people, this is one (There are a few others!) that is based on secrecy and deception in order to thrive.
Do understand that this is NOT an attack on any man who chooses the Gay lifestyle as his way of living but the spotlight is on those men who choose to indulge in reckless dangerous activity behind the backs of their unknowing significant other and never gave her the choice of knowing when they either got together or when he felt a need to explore his sexuality with men.
Not only that, but the reckless lifestyle of having anonymous unprotected sex with multiple partners who are total strangers puts that innocent woman in the crossthreads of death because of the potential of catching AIDS and other dangerous Sexually Transmitted Diseases!
Out of all the vast types of unions that there are out here in the world, not ONE of them requires that their partner be secretive. No one wants to be lied to and deceived and this is what tonights show is all about!
Tonight we want to hear your reactions to the question asked as well as your real life stories of what it was like when you found out that horrible secret as it was brought out into the light.
There are more ladies dealing with this type of heartbreak and letdown than you might think!
