Zya: I'm seeing someone right now.
Akez: Good for you, dear.
Zya: The thing is, he has a boyfriend. I'm his 'mistress'!
Akez: Oh no...
Zya: Well, we see each other once a week, and we have fun. That's it.
Akez: But didn't your ex cheat on you also? That caused your breakup, right?
Zya: I know.
Akez: So why are you allowing yourself to be an accessory to cheating this time?
Zya: Hmmm... I guess I'm not up for a serious relationship right now.
Akez: So, does it justify anything?
I don't really get it. I know this guy as someone who's a cut above the rest. Well, that's what I thought. I couldn't be more disappointed that he fell in this whole cheating trap, although he's more of the "accessory" this time rather than its victim. I'm hardly judgmental of my friends, but I really lost respect for him, I'm sorry to say that.
Why am I seeing more of these? Cheating bastards! There are countless accounts/confessions in blogs and it breaks my heart every time I read them.
It's quite unfortunate coz in the tricky world of gay dating, it seems we would all fall to cheating eventually. Is this a matter of who cheats who first? It sounds like a game to me and most gay men appear to just play along. I've heard it too often that it is the nature of men (whether gay or straight) to play around. So is it too much to expect that we all grow up somehow? As Miranda Priestly said: "Am I reaching for the stars here? I don't think so."
