Hi, I‘m Lily. I am Bisexual.

I'm a 23 year old, single mom of a wonderful 10 months old little prince, just got divorced from my 31 year old husband. Bi and Bipolar. As if being Bi wasn't already hard ;)

What being bisexual means to me

Loving souls; not skins, genders, ethnicity.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

This is not a stage. I have been bi since I have memory, since I was a little girl learning to speak and going to kinder. Since I first explored sexuality. I have fell in love deeply with both women and men, at different moments of my life and is even more confusing than just being gay per sei, cause we tend to even judge ourselves and question our own nature.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

I got married and during my marriage I just accepted myself. I'm bi. It wa so hard to believe that, even for myself. I used to deny to myself my own sexuality. And even now it's hard to let everyone one.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Falling in love for my best friends and being judge by all people, from my own husband to people that don't even know me.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

To develop our nature and our sexuality. Feeling the same excitement for either women or men.

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

I don't even know how to explain it. Skeptical. Most of the time. They either believe is a stage and I'm lesbian or believe is a lie and I just don't even know what I want.

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

It's not just to fall in love with your best friend, is also physical attraction for both sex. If you're in the process, just try to understand yourself, and where is all this coming out from.
