What being bisexual means to me

Bisexuality to me is a term i use to describe my love for others. Its a way for me to tell people hey i am interested in both men and women. Its also a big part of who i am even though i keep it hidden.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

We arent just a phase or a passing phad, how we feel is as relevant as any other sexuality. We are also people like everyone else not monsters and certainly not easy people who sleep with everyone, bisexuality is how we feel and who we are.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

I've always felt an attraction to men but I've always kept it secret as i am growing up in an non understanding house hold. But when i reached high school i met others like me soon had a boyfriend and here we are. I still very much like women but thats ok in my house.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Knowing that some people really hate you for it and just pure lack of understanding. I have friends who are homophobes and who i wouldn't care to lose. So that is the hardest part, lossing others because of the way you are.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

I get both cute guys and girls so dating is fun because i connect with all the genders and i get to see a wide variety of human nature plus cute high school bisexual couples are pretty sweet. I also feel really complete ever since i excepted it so that is a huge bonus.

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

All my gay friends are cool and even some of the straight ones so far I've had no conflict but that's because i pick my battles and am still relatively in the closet.

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

Don't let people tell you you are wrong; because you are not. Love is the freest feeling we can feel and to have others control it is just dumb. But do what you feel is right TO YOU and everything will turn out amazing!!!
