Hi, I‘m Jess. I am Bisexual.

Im from Riverside, California and am going to school for nursing at Chaffey. I enjoy watching football. I love horror movies! I'm close to everyone in my family.

What being bisexual means to me

It means that that's how I am. I'm still human like everyone else. I just like men and women. I still have the same rights as everyone so there shouldn't be a reason to discriminate.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

We aren't weird people. I überly dislike it when a girl is like "oh you like girls?" and then backs up. Just because I like girls doesn't mean I'm going to throw myself at you. I have standards.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Being able to open up to people is always the hardest. Girls get weirded out and guys try to make it as if it's so hot.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

Being able to date men or women. And being able to switch up the roles.

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

A few people including my own father pretended like they didn't hear me when I talked about my sexuality. Other people were very comfortable around me yet told me that they still cared about me no matter who I was.

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

Just be you. Honestly who cares what others think? Be you and you will be happier. Even if someone walks out of your life because you like both sexes, you'll find someone else who cares about you enough not to walk away. Heck, if you need a friend, I'm here for you!
