Scorpio + Leo = ???? Part II

Folks, this blog series could go as long as the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion episodes. I left off with the break-up. Last night I found out from him that he messed around twice during the two months we dated. We agreed to be "exclusively dating" which meant no sex with anyone else. I, of course, was taken aback. I was then infuriated when I remembered that he proposed  that we take things up a notch to boyfriend status. His insecurities got the best of him but my intuition keep me from a broken heart. It is sad though that we as black gay men cannot seem to find ourselves, in general, to be loyal. There will always be someone cuter, smarter, taller, shorter (if you like them like me) and attractive in the world. We must learn to realize that when you have a good thing, keep it, it can possibly take you far and beyond your wildest dreams.

I had the pleasure to meet one of his friends who is graduating law school. He was the president of the student body of the law school. He is also openly gay and very much engaged to his fiancee. They will be getting married right after his graduates law school. They are young and black. If anything, that couple reminds me that there is hope. This situation I was in makes all gay men right now seem bleek but they are what seems to be a rare example, that it works if you try.

So consequently I have cut ties with him and wished him the best in life. The saying goes, "you don't miss a good thing till it's gone."
