Questions & Answers

To be bisexual, does a person have to be with a man and a woman at the same time?

In a word – no.  To be bisexual, you only have to have to capacity to be attracted to both men and women. Relationship status or even lifelong celibacy do not change the sexuality of a straight, gay, or lesbian person.  A bisexual person’s sexuality is just as resilient as anyone else’s.


Bisexuality is about feelings, not actions. I'm a bisexual woman who hasn't even dated another woman. Instead, the first person to fall in love with me back was a man. We're married and monogamous.

But I'm still bisexual, because feeling aroused by somebody is involuntary.
