United States

Hi, I‘m Knox. I am Bisexual.

I'm a veterinarian who lives in Maryland between DC, Baltimore, and Annapolis. I enjoy this area because you are so close to so much: history, current events, the arts, science, nature and the outdoors... I enjoy walking around and exploring the National Mall in DC, checking out the art museums or the historic part of Annapolis on the water. I try to always keep learning and expanding my horizons. I also want to find ways to educate people about bisexuality so that we can all live happier, more productive lives.

What being bisexual means to me

Attraction to more than one gender, not necessarily to the same degree, in the same way, or at the same time. I feel that sexuality is complex and that a large portion of the population as a whole are between 100% straight and 100% gay in terms of their attractions. I don't get caught up with labels personally. Bisexual, pansexual, fluid, queer, and so on all work for me. I feel that many get too caught up in "labels." The important thing is to know and accept your sexuality, whatever that is.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

We are just as honest, caring, loving, and even monogamous as anyone else.
Give us a chance. Don't automatically reject someone because they are bisexual. Get to know the person.
Everyone deserves a chance.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

I have almost no dating life. I would like to find someone special. I'd be totally faithful. But as a relationship minded bi man in his 40s, the vast majority of people reject me as soon as they find out about my sexuality.
My life is very isolating and lonely.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

Feeling free and ok about being attracted to more than one gender.

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

My parents and siblings handled it fine. But potential dates do not.
