Hi, I‘m Phae. I am Bisexual.

Hi, I'm Phaedra, but you can call me Phae :) I'm from Belgium, so I speak Dutch and French; but, I also speak English, just because I'm good at languages ;) I'm 17, and would love to meet other bisexual, or even pansexual, people. I've been looking for someone for a long time now. At first, I was kind of afraid to show myself as bisexual, but I've realized I am who I am, and being with another girl makes me happier than being with a boy. I loooove pizza! That's something you can give me night and day. :D I have never been with a girl, but I'm ready now :p I do not, in any way, care about what someone looks like. I fall in love with someone for who they are, and not their looks. I used to dance and do horse riding, but had to stop because of school. I love adventure and my dream is to live in the U.S. I'm happy to meet new people, although I'm quite shy at first, but once you get to know me, I can be very caring. I love to help people, and I am absolutely not ashamed to talk about how I feel. I like to express myself by writing and drawing; sometimes I paint too. My worst fear is to lose the ones I love. I haven't been very close to my family lately, but I still love them. I love dogs; my favorite animals are cats and raccoons, though. My favorite coulour is blue :) Don't be afraid to talk to me. I don't bite :D

What being bisexual means to me

Being bisexual means knowing who I am, accepting myself the way I was made to be: and that's bisexual.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

I want the world to know that being bisexual isn't a crime. I hear other bisexual, or even gay, people get called namesm and I don't think that's the right way to deal with it. People need to know that there's nothing wrong about it. If you don't judge me for being who I am, then I won't judge you for you being yourself.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

I had a massive crush on my teacher; and it went from having a crush to really seeing that I liked girls more than just as friends.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Telling other people is, for me, the toughest thing, because I'm still young and no one knows.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

The best thing about being bisexual is getting to share my life with a girl, and getting to meet people like me who understand.

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

Not a lot of them know, but the ones who do have reacted quite well. I'm still coming out though.

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

Be who you want to be, and if you're not sure, just try :D
