Let’s be honest: We have all had moments in the past that, if frozen in time, would make us the seventh man to land on this list. We all struggle with highlighting the good and minimizing the bad, and there is nothing wrong with having a few traits that you might want to downplay on your résumé. But if you are a gay man who’s been dating long enough, chances are you have had the displeasure of running into a few men who exhibit more than just a couple personal flaws. These men are true character monsters, and they are the people dating nightmares are made of.
These are the six gay men you never want to meet: the sequel. (Here is Part I, if you need a refresher.)
The Fire Starter
This man’s spark may draw you in at first. He is magnetic and kinetic, and the sex is probably the best you’ve ever had. But the more you get to know him, the more you start to realize the heat that attracted you has burned so many in the past. To him, everyone else is “crazy,” and you realize he only has new friends and no old ones. He flares up easily, and what you construed as passion might just be a severe anger problem. Step slowly away … because the only consistent crazy part of his life is himself, and you could be left covered in ashes. (Illustrated by Clarione Gutierrez)
