Dating a biexual
However, to find out that the people I date are at just as much risk of biphobia as I am is shocking. I date people because of their personality, not just because of what’s in-between their legs and that’s a far more authentic way to live. Even if your married, your husband still notices other women.
How would you feel knowing that strangers have told the person you’re dating that you are confused or hiding the fact that you’re gay?I am a 24 year old bisexual man – no, I’m not confused, no, I’m not gay, no, I’m not going through a phase.What’s more, I’m proud to be a bi guy – if you only knew the fun I was having you’d be jealous.He was a true "50-50" bi guy, a lover of men and women, not an “attention-seeker” or a "halfway-there gay man" or any of the ridiculous and offensive claims people make about bisexuals. This led to his heartache, since he was trying to date me, a gay guy who was not monogamously inclined (and still isn’t), a guy who was too immature to say, “Hey, I’m not really looking for a relationship.” This seems basic, but it's unfortunately still necessary to note in an ongoing effort to counteract this bizarre notion that someone who is attracted to multiple genders will inevitably miss having sex with people of the gender they’re not sleeping with, and cheat. For him, as well as for many others, his claim to bisexuality wasn’t a transitional phase or halfway point between straight and gay.But even if a bisexual person does cheat, it's hardly evidence that bisexuality inclines a person toward infidelity. But I understand where this misconception comes from.
