What being bisexual means to me

To me, being bisexual means that I like men and women both. I don't exactly care if someone is male or female, I'm attracted to both sexes.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

I want the world to know that I am not confused. I am attracted to both sexes, and that's okay. I want them to know that I am not bisexual because I want "more attention", but because I genuinely am attracted to both sexes. I can't help who I am.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

I have known that I was attracted to women as well as men since I was in tenth grade. I attempted to supress that attraction until I got to college. I met a girl and I found myself often flirting with her. I was sure about it when I found myself about to kiss a girl at a hockey game.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

The hardest thing about being a bisexual person is that sometimes I feel like I don't feel like I fit into a group. I feel like I am not straight enough to fit in perfectly with the straight community, or gay enough to fit in with the gay community.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

The best thing about being bisexual is that I can fall in love with either a boy or a girl!

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

All of my friends that I have told so far have been really supportive. I have yet to tell my parents, because I want to have all the answers for them.

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

I just want them to know that coming out as bisexual is one of the most freeing things that I personally have ever done.
