Bisexual

Australia



Hi, I‘m Caitlin. I am Bisexual.

My name is Caitlin, and I like Japanese anime and culture. I like to read, be creative and have fun. I like Japanese Fashion, Lolita Fashion being my favourite. I am a closeted bisexual, and only a few of my friends know about my sexuality ^^'

What being bisexual means to me

Bisexual means to me, anyone who is attracted or has been attracted to someone of the same sex.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

Bisexuals aren't greedy or confused, it also isn't a phase. Like everyone, some people are confused about their sexuality at first. Some people automatically know throughout their life they are straight, others question or identify as otherwise. Some people may think they are gay and realise they are in fact bisexual, and make the mistake of coming out as gay at first. Being confused on what to label yourself doesn't make you confused about who you are once you get there. Bisexuality is a sexual preference that is real, and once you discover who you are it will not change. It's always been there, you were just confused on what to label yourself.

Everyone is free to love regardless of their sexual preference or who they fall in love with.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

I have always been bisexual for as long as I can remember, it was just something that I didn't realise until I was older and I found myself attracted to a close friend. I've never dated a girl, but I know that I'm attracted to them. I will date whoever I happen to fall in love with, whether it's a guy or girl. You can't help who you are attracted to ^w^

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

I'm scared many people will misunderstand and think that I am gay, or argue that I'm straight and confused as I've only dated guys.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

I'm free to love whomever I chose

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

I have told some of my close friends and they have all reacted positively. I haven't told my family or come out to many people as I'm afraid they'll misunderstand.

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 who you are, if someone can't accept you for who you are that's their loss not yours. You are a beautiful amazing person, and you are on this earth for a reason.
