There is something a bit unsettling about bumping into an “ex” on the rugby field. Especially, if that ex and you did not part on the best of terms. You could react in many ways. My way of coping? To try and flatten him at every opportunity. So OK, I was a bit late with a few of my tackles. And I was lucky not to get ‘sin binned’, but I think I showed that that I was the boss on the field.
You see, not all men are equals. One man is always the boss. Or should I say, one dog is always top dog. You have tops and bottoms, Doms and subs. There is always a hierarchy. It may be subtle, but it’s there. One thing is for sure, you don’t want to be your ex’s bitch!
In the end, I tackled myself all out and was substituted. I’d put in a stella performance and proven that even though he ended it, I was the boss of him!
Men, gay or straight, we really are simple creatures.
