as a straight man who fell in love with another straight man, I’ve received (literally) thousands of e-mails from readers who offered their perspectives, argued their viewpoints, shared their own stories, smiled, laughed, and even cried.
I never expected such sincere outpouring of emotion and discussion from my own story.
I’ve talked to people in polyamorous relationships, long-distance relationships, sexless, open, and every combination in between.
Normal is a very relative term, especially when it comes to relationships. It’s about creating a life that feels right and honest and authentic to you.
I went on to date a number of trans guys, and in my mind, “bi” was also indicative of a gender binary I didn’t believe existed.
Perhaps I haven't met enough of them, which would be understandable considering they are often compelled to remain closeted when it comes to their split sexuality.He was a true "50-50" bi guy, a lover of men and women, not an “attention-seeker” or a "halfway-there gay man" or any of the ridiculous and offensive claims people make about bisexuals. This led to his heartache, since he was trying to date me, a gay guy who was not monogamously inclined (and still isn’t), a guy who was too immature to say, “Hey, I’m not really looking for a relationship.” This seems basic, but it's unfortunately still necessary to note in an ongoing effort to counteract this bizarre notion that someone who is attracted to multiple genders will inevitably miss having sex with people of the gender they’re not sleeping with, and cheat. For him, as well as for many others, his claim to bisexuality wasn’t a transitional phase or halfway point between straight and gay.But even if a bisexual person does cheat, it's hardly evidence that bisexuality inclines a person toward infidelity. But I understand where this misconception comes from." Of course, men and women differ in sexual responses, attractions and desires.Women tend to be more flexible in their sexuality, but whether that’s innate or a function of living in a society where Katy Perry is worshipped for singing a song called ‘I Kissed a Girl’, and Madonna snogs Britney Spears on stage, remains to be seen.When I started dating a woman for the first time after years of happily dating men, I had a go-to joke ready for when I was called upon to explain my sexual orientation to the confused: “I’m half gay.
