Dating a down low man
Down-low is an African American slang term  that typically refers to a subculture of black men who usually identify as heterosexual, but who have sex with men ; some avoid sharing this information even if they have female sexual partner s , they are married, or they are single. The term originated in the black community, and was originally used to describe "any kind of slick, secretive behavior, including infidelity in heterosexual relationships". According to a study published in the Journal of Bisexuality , "[t]he Down Low is a lifestyle predominately practiced by young, urban [b]lack men who have sex with other men and women, yet do not identify as gay or bisexual". In this context, "being on the Down Low" is more than just men having sex with men in secret, or a variant of closeted homosexuality or bisexuality—it is a sexual identity that is, at least partly, defined by its "cult of masculinity" and its rejection of what is perceived as white culture including white LGBT culture and terms. Rejecting a gay culture they perceive as white and effeminate, many black men have settled on a new identity, with its own vocabulary and customs and its own name: Down Low.

8 Signs Of Low Self-Esteem And Insecurity In Men | YourTango
To all my gay black brothers who are free and open with their sexuality, it's time to let go of dating the men in your lives who are not. It's time to drop that "down-low" hook-up you met online who would not unlock his pictures until you met at a private location. No more chasing "trade" who will spew homophobic slurs in the day and then privately text you late at night. I'm not cautioning you about the obvious dangers that these habits might hold for your physical safety and health; trust that our straight friends and elders badger us about this all the time. I'm saying this because it's time for us to really challenge our community and each other on our self-worth.

Just as 'out' gay men have a duty to protect themselves from others forcing their will upon them, men refusing to conform to the label should acknowledge their sacrifice. What does it mean to put a label on your sexuality, to assign a category to your own existence? And where does it come from? Does it result from your actions, or how you feel inside?
Well, perhaps. They are exciting. You and this person have your own little secret.
