To clear up the myths, here’s what actually true and what’s certainly not – the “facts.”Bisexual people, especially bisexual women, are often sexualized: We’re good for a romp in the sack, the logic goes, but not good enough to take home to the parents.
Yet many people believe that being bisexual and having sex with men will somehow put women off, as though your masculinity is somehow defined by the gender of the people you date.
But few things rock potential relationships more than one partner feeling insecure – and dating someone sexually fluid can feel threatening to even the most secure individuals.
Which is why there’s arguably nothing that scares a date off more than announcing you’re bisexual.
They may spurn them to avoid bi people romantically altogether, or even engage in damaging biphobia.
It’s time we all realized that bisexual people are just as good relationship material as anyone else – and that most of the assumptions about dating bi people aren’t true.
