Hi, I‘m Alex. I am Bisexual.

Italian professional belonging to the world of music and multimedia entertainment, now living in Palma de Mallorca. I love nature and outdoor lifestyle, although I really like staying at home with my cats sometimes ;)

What being bisexual means to me

It means that I can be attracted by a woman, as well as by a man, it's something I cannot plan. I feel it perfectly normal and beautiful, but too often I suffocated my emotions, preferring to shut up and pass by, in order not to give explanations to anybody... and I start to be fed up of that.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

That we aren't crazy, or perverted, or repressed gays... We have a higher sensitiveness and we're able to open our mind and heart to both women's and men's world.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

I read some stories written by other people on a forum, and I found myself in those words. Before, I didn't understand what was going on with me, I was asking myself if I really was a repressed gay, but at the same time I was attracted by women, so the confusion in my mind was high...

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

That it's really difficult to explain... You can only tell this to really open-minded people, because the others see you as a strange being...
There are some friends of mine, lovely people that I don't want to deceive, but they wouldn't understand, and would completely change their attitude towards me if told about this... And I really would like to be able to do it someday.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

You are not forced to affirm a precise orientation, you can live your life in a discreet way, because there are a lot of witnesses that can tell that you are straight, if asked.

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

The three people that know this, of course reacted in the right way. But I was sure about them ;)
Nobody else knows.

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

Make tests discreetly, clear your mind about that, then decide what to do, depending on how open-minded your environment is. If you're lucky and it's worth to come out, do it.
