Bi sexual and lesbians dating
Luckily, she's not that kind of girl and has no problem dating bi people, but the fact that it's out there— an option to 'filter me out'— just makes me feel gross.
Polls have revealed that while most people believe LGBTQ people make up a full 23 percent of the population, but the number is actually closer to a scant 3.8 percent.Depending on the circles you run in, it's rarer than you might think.As Slate explains: Polls have revealed that while most people believe LGBTQ people make up a full 23 percent of the population, but the number is actually closer to a scant 3.8 percent.So not only is it statistically more likely more likely that a bisexual person will wind up with a partner of the opposite sex; it’s equally likely that they’ll wind up with someone from the over 96 percent of the population who identifies as straight.The bottom line is, if you want to you can find opportunities for same-sex relationships as a bisexual.I remember getting genuinely sad when my current girlfriend was explaining why some of her lesbian friends won't use Tinder — because they couldn't filter out bisexuals, which some lesbian dating apps let you do.
The idea that I could have missed out on meeting my girlfriend because she was avoiding my entire type is pretty awful.
" I think some would say it's easier to be in a straight relationship.
And it's simplifies having to explain to friends, family, co-workers etc. Not to mention, their preferred preference may be the opposite sex even though they may feel attraction and more to another gender." Before we jump into that, I'd like to say one thing if you're bi and in a straight relationship, because you've probably taken a bunch of sh*t for that.
Maybe the numbers point to some truth to the idea that most of them do end up with straight relationships, but I would argue that more bi people would be in same-sex relationships if more gay men and lesbian women were open to them.
But more than just a general dislike of bisexuals, is there a more basic numbers issue.
I'm a bisexual in a lesbian relationship and was totally shocked to read how rare that is.
