Bisexual

United States



Hi, I‘m Mindy. I am Bisexual.

I live in the Portland community in Oregon. I am currently looking for work. I love making out with my boyfriend. I love watching tv shows and learning about who I am. I finally fully embraced being bisexual and I love that about myself.

What being bisexual means to me

I can be fully commited to my boyfriend but still can embrace the fact that I will love girls and be aroused by them. I can still be me without having conflicting thoughts.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

I would like the world to know that it doesn't matter what religion you are or race, etc. that people are just sexual beings and not to be labeled.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

When I was a child, my mom asked me if I was a tomboy or a girly girl. I couldn't answer then cause I l liked doing both. I shut it down then as an adult I realized that I was bi-curious but thought that was part of my sex addiction I had so I cut it off. I was talking with my boyfriend's brother about human sexuality and realized with saying that I girls turn me on that I truly identified myself as bisexual. I came out to my boyfriend and he says it turns him on and that he still loves me no matter what.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

I don't know how to share with anyone about this. I am a Christian as well and I know that no one would think I was one if I shared this.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

Knowing that I can be who I am as a person.

How have other people in your life reacted to your bisexuality?

So far it is positive. I don't know how to share it to others.

What advice do you have for someone who thinks they may be bi or who is in the process of coming out as bi?

Be yourself.
