Yes, once again, you are definitely on to something here that I hadn’t previously considered. My women friends, if they knew I had a girlfriend would begin to wonder if I were sexually interested in them because a part of this dynamic is that people just assume you are a nymphomaniac who has no standards at all, but just wants anything that moves. Their husbands might wonder the same thing. This is why I keep my mouth largely shut.

Nearly all humans are a mix of masculine and feminine traits, Yin and Yang. It would be a better world if it were more socially acceptable for guys to embrace their Yin sides and for everyone to just be who they are.
