    I'm new here, just figuring my way around.

    I have a loved one who never exhibited signs of being even remotely gay before the individual lost a loved one, tragically, and then immediately after, this person went full throttle homosexual, shockingly.

    I'm hardly an expert, but here are some guesses (note: I'm assuming the individual is male for ease of sentence structure):

    Possibility 1: He freaked out and is trying to be someone he's not because he can't stand being himself right now. (knowing nothing more than what you've told me, this one strikes me as the most likely)

    Possibility 2: The sudden shift in his life (and possible confrontation with his own mortality) prompted him to stop pretending to be straight (and perhaps he's over-enthusiastic about it due to the novelty).

    Possibility 3: The sudden shift in his life promted him to do some heavy soul-searching, realize, among other things, that he had been denying/misinterpreting his feelings towards certain other males his whole life (for any number of reasons), and decide to embrace those denied longings (perhaps over-enthusiasticly due to the novelty of it).

    Possibility 4: A secret government organization is testing their "gay ray" and selected him as a test subject because the recent upheaval in his life would give people plausible reasons to explain away his sudden shift in behavior so they wouldn't suspect clandestine intervention.

    This board is starting to have an unusual, and disturbing, increase in interest in being gay. :eusa_eh:

    I'm just saying.

    Doesn't suit your agenda huh? Why couldn't it? There is no evidence to rule it out as a possibility.

    I suspect there are plenty of covertly gay people who love their spouses and who remain in their heterosexual unions because of that.

    When that spouse they love dies, they come out of the closet.

    It's not actually all that rare an event.
