Hi, I‘m AJ. I am Bisexual. I am a second year nursing degree student at the university of Stirling. I spend most of my time working and studying but when I have spare time I like to go to the gym, go running, cycling, hiking or swimming and I love rugby. I also love to read fictional books but don't have much time for that really. Originally I am from Brighton and am English rather than Scottish despite studying up here, although I do enjoy the Highlands up here.
What being bisexual means to meIt's not everything I am and try to avoid labels as much as possible but I would say I am attracted to men 60% and women 40%.
What I would like the world to know about bisexualsBisexuals are not just part way out as gay and just be a bi guy dates another guy it does not make him gay.
What was your path to a bisexual identity?I started dating a guy and came out as gay as I thought that was what you did, serious mistake as its impossible to now change how people perceive me.
What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?Trying to explain it to people no one understands and when they find out your dating a guy they assume your gay.
What is the best thing about being bisexual?Being attracted to both sexes opens up loads of opportunities and makes sex really exciting.
How have other people in your life reacted to your bisexuality?Not always positively and it tends to take more explaining than being gay or str8. People find it hard to understand as I date a gay guy so most the time I stop explaining.
What advice do you have for someone who thinks they may be bi or who is in the process of coming out as bi?Come out as bi not str8 or gay as its really tough changing people's ideas of you once your out and labelled.
