So many people get the wrong idea when people tell them they are bi. I have many friends that are bisexual, and just because they are bisexual doesn't mean they like women and men equally, or even at the same time.

Bisexuality means you can love more than one gender, not that you dig them both equally.


What are your thoughts on this, not just how lots of people get the wrong idea, but just any thoughts on bisexuality?

Both of my ex's were bi, I've no issue with it.
I find women more attractive than men but I'm straight.
In some ways I find women more sexually appealing too but it's not likely that I'd ever act on that attraction.
I like men...*shrugs*

It didn't work out though.

True, but that was more due to an issue of cheating on me (with a guy.. although, really, I'd have left him if he'd cheated on me with a girl) with the first, and a mutual break-up in the second case. So while sexuality played a part, I've got no harsh feelings left.

It's good that you are not sour, that never helps. Bisexuality is fundamentally incompatible with monogamy though.

I'd say that probably depends on the people involved. I never stopped my second ex from looking at pornography to sate what I biologically could not, but different reasons were involved for our break-up. The first cheated on me because he didn't know how to admit that he preferred men rather than women and men, so that was a communications error. I think that a bisexual individual could commit, if they and their partner agreed on a 1 x 1 relationship.

Now I'm with someone who is hetero', monogamous and hates porn lol

Pornography is not really a healthy outlet.

Depends on how much they are looking at it, what sort they are into and if it is an addictive level or not.

Cocaine, in moderation and used responsibly, is not a healthy pastime.

Correct. Neither is healthy though.

Why is pornography unhealthy?

Anyway, if bisexuality means you have the potential to be attracted to either gender (not necessarily equally), don't most people have the potential to be bisexual?

Yes, and no. It is more than the potential that everyone has...
