Hi, I‘m Pietro. I am Bisexual.

I am young entrepreneur, currently located in South Florida, however plan to be Bi-Coastal (California) soon. My hobbies include traveling, eating good food, motorcycles, spending time with my closest friends. I'm also Italian, (born there but raised in South Florida) so I have a natural proclivity towards cultures and pondering the meaning of life.

What being bisexual means to me

I identify mostly as heteromantic. I'm generally attracted to and date women, but I've always felt an attraction towards other genders.

Therefore, for me, bisexuality is the ability to feel attraction towards multiple genders, "not necessarily in the same way, and not necessarily to the same degree". (Thank you Robyn Ochs)

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

That not every bisexual has the same attractions and their approach towards intimacy and sex is different.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

I'm currently still on that path and am involving myself in the community to connect with others who have been on this journey longer than I have.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

For me is dealing with the waves of sexual fluidity and understand what that means for me personally.

Our lack of visibility contributes to so many misconceptions which makes it difficult for others to come to terms with their sexuality.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

I feel bisexuals have a great capacity to be in a loving relationship because we come from a world that deal with ambiguity, and as a result we tend to be more understanding of others.

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

My closest friends see me in the same way since I never really changed. I've only had one negative reaction which was with a potential partner. Since then, we've maintained communication, but I've realized I must begin being more open about my sexual orientation where eventually I can openly celebrate it.

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

You're not alone. You're a normal human being.

Go and connect with the bi community in any way possible. Once you do, you'll find your self worth increase dramatically. It did for me.
