Hi, I‘m Tori. I am Bisexual.

I am single. I have a crush on by best friend who is a girl. I still go to school. I love sports and singing. I love to dance and do gymnastics. I love to edit pictures. I have a huge fear of spiders and being fat. I am depressed and suicidal. I get bullied. I am not accepted although everyone should be. I feel alone and I am very worried that I am or I am gonna be fat.

What being bisexual means to me

Being bisexual means to me that it's ok to be different. Bisexuality means you are unique because there isn't many other people who are bisexual. Bisexuality isn't bad. To me bisexuality is just something you like. Everyone is different. To me it's like the clothes you wear, how you style your hair, if you wear makeup of not, who you love isn't any different than that.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

Imagine the world if most people who bisexual, and you were the only one straight. Imagine people not accepting you for that, how would that make you feel. Who you love is who you love. It doesn't make you any different. It doesn't make you weird or inhuman. It's just another thing about you that makes you different from everyone else. Don't follow what the majority of people like, follow what you like.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

At first I didn't wanna believe it. Most people don't know I'm bisexual. I feel I am not accepted for it although I should be. I only told my closest friends (which is like two) and one of them happens to be bisexual herself. So I just haven't had the courage to tell many people. Especially since I'm already bullied. Bisexuality isn't something to be ashamed of, I just wanna hide it from the people who wouldn't accept it.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

The toughest thing is not having people accept you. Although you're like everyone else, some people don't understand that. I guess they would have to be bisexual to realize that. Besides the fact my friend is bisexual too and I have a crush on her. It would be a nightmare of she found out though she probably would think I'm a creep after that. Also getting a crush on someone of the same sex who is not a lesbian or bi.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

The best thing about Being bisexual is the feeling that you are different and when you tell someone about it, you get an amazing feeling of relief. Ive always wanted a girl friend which I haven't got had. Another good thing is that you can chose whether you like a boy or a girl and you can try loving someone of the same and different sex.

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

I haven't told many people. But my friends have seemed to accept me though. Especially since one friend is bisexual too. I am scared to tell my parents yet though because I dont know how they would react though even though they would probably accept it too.

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

Dont try to make yourself believe you're not bi. If you think you are then believe it. Think Of what your thoughts are of boys and girls. Think of who you like. Dont be afraid to be you. Dont worry about what people think.
