I am Bisexual. I have known about it to

I am Bisexual. I have known about it to some extent since i was around 15/16. I've never really felt able to be open with it as I believe 90% of the people who i am close to would merely see bisexual as gay, when that is definately not the case. I am equally attracted to woman and indeed have only ever fallen in love with women, and i feel revealing a sexual attraction to men would come with more stigma than i would be prepared to deal with.

I am happily with my girlfriend and do not intend to be with anyone else, male or female, however sometimes it feels like a part of my personality is being withheld, repressed, and perhaps i should've risked the labelling earlier in my life (when i had less attachments) in order to be open about myself.

  • I think you should be whoever makes you happy, male or femmale. Who gives a s*** what anyone else has to say about it, it is your life, and that is all you need to be worried about. If you are happy with your girlfriend, stay with her. If you guys should break up, and you fall in love with a man, more power to you. Do not base your choices and decisions in life on what other's might think or say. Be with who ever the h*** you want, switch back and forth if you so choose, just say f*** everyone else!

  • Pick a side and stick with it. Don't be lazy.

  • (from the original confessee)In answer to the last post, i thought about that too and (from my own experience) ive found that if a person is going to cheat then they're going to cheat, and external influences have comparatively little to do with it.

    someone who has an affair usually has a reason, right or wrong (e.g. the relationship's not working, they're 'bored', and so forth), and is rarely ever 'tricked' into having an affair when theyre perfectly happy.

    i wouldn't say there's twice the temptation, but mainly because im committed to my girlfriend and so therefore people who are attractive are attractive but thats as far as it goes.

  • I wonder if a bisexual man who marries a woman is more likely to get divorced or have an affair than a hetero man would be. Twice the temptation?

  • Stay in the closet. Once gay always gay and like it or not that's how you are going to be seen. It's different for guys than it is for girls. If you were a girl then it wouldn't matter but because it's less acceptable for guys this is what you have to deal with. If you are happy with your girl and don't want anyone else then leave it be, otherwise be prepared to be explaining yourself alot.

  • This conflicts me because on the one hand I feel like you should be proud of who you are, and there should never be a stigma attached to being or expressing who you are or your sexual orientation, while I on the other I want to tell you to stick with women if you also feel a huge attraction to them because the health risks are significantly less.

  • i am in the same exact boat.
