Unfortunately, some of the things I’ve heard since I came out as bisexual truly bum me out.
To be fair, I’ve said a lot of dumb things about bisexuality in the past myself.
But when I phoned a dating agency eight months ago, everything had taken on a new sense of urgency. ‘Haven’t you found yourself a husband yet, Bridgey? But don’t look desperate — men hate that.’ I went speed-dating, online-dating, wine-tasting dating, quiz-dating and dinner-dating.
You've seen worse girls nab coveted guys, but you can't even lock down a steady hookup. I had to pause and really consider this for a while.“I don't get it,” my friend started on a recent Gchat. No moments of weirdness or blackout bragging about how I pissed the bed and still got laid (lol remember that?), and I still haven't gotten a text.”It's a situation that we're all too familiar with and is still puzzling.If I weren’t taking a break from dating right now, I would be open to dating a kind, attractive, sexually-generous bisexual dude — but I haven’t always felt this way.In fact, I used to tell my friends that I wouldn’t feel comfortable dating a bisexual man.I wrote about a few of the things studies can tell us about bisexual women, (we smoke the most weed, we’re particularly susceptible to mental illness, etc.) and I posted it on Facebook.
