alright, so I know my fair share of "bisexual" people. The thing is, many of them started out straight, had several perfectly normal relationships, and then when they were 21 or so decided to try out the other sex. is this normal? does this really make them bisexual? because I also know a girl and a guy who have been attracted to both sexes since early ages, such as 13 or 14.

Are the other people only faking it? Do you think that true Bisexualism is recognisable from an early age, or do people also gradually acknowledge their tendencies? Or do they just pretend to be Bi to be "different"?

Maybe they got bored with the opposite sex. Or maybe they were faking not being bisexual

I believe it's genuine. Sure, I've seen 'bi sexuals', but I know friends who have had straight and gay sex whilst being in open straight or gay relationships. It's their business mind, I'm not gonna step in my foot and go 'NO YOU'RE LYING!', as I know they've been in loving relationships in both scenarios.

Maybe they didn't realize it until then?

I'm not talking about people trying out the same sex, I'm talking about people who say they are bi, but realised that very late.

EDIT: I know this girl who only started to be "bi" when friends of her did and because of the stupid Manga she was reading.

A lot of people have difficulty coming out, and it can take a long time for them to be comfortable enough with themselves to come out.

I believe Bisexuality is legit.
I believe there should be no restrictions if you love someone.
Vagina + Penis, Vagina + Vagina or penis + penis shouldnt restrict you from being with someone.

You like who you like
You love who you love
Its whats inside that matters :]

are you sure? Because I seriously have the feeling that many people are just jumping the "being different" bandwagon of being bi.

Of course, not all; of them.

Actually i know exactly what you mean. In my area all of the sudden everyother person, usually the "popular" or the "look at me im an attention ***** type" all of the sudden are Bi sexual. Its like the new cool thing to be, we know they arent but for some reason they post if on their myspace/facebooks/attention getting site.

I don't think anyone would "fake" being a different sexual orientation.

I do. A girl in my grade did it for a year. She now claims that she's "not Bi anymore".

If you're asking whether or not I think people can really be bisexual, then yes, of course they can.

I hate how so many people this narrow-minded view of sexuality, where everyone has to be labeled something, and once you are a certain sexuality you can't change, ect ect.

its just plain wrong. not only do people change constantly, by labeling yourself you only confine yourself. At the risk of sounding like a hippie, just love who it feels right to love. And respect people in who they feel its right to love.

I'd say a minority are doing it to be cool. The thing you have to remember is that everyone is different. One person might realise they're gay at a very young age, others may not realize until a lot later on. Some people my come out pretty much straight away, some people may never come out. Everyone is different.

I was just curious on how people are attracted to the same gender.

I myself have said on numerous occasions that there are certain men I would be gay for (Johnny Depp being one of them). And i mean that in all seriousness. Does that make me bi? I, personally, do not think so.

But the "just love who it feels right etc", I have to agree. I'm not trying to label anyone, I'm just asking if anybody else has the feeling that this "bisexual" thing is becoming more of a trend than reality.

I would not have a problem having a threesome with a guy and a chick. But that doesn't mean I would PREFER having the guy there. I'd still prefer the chick. Then again, if the guy were totally awesome...

I believe a lot of them are genuine, but I've noticed a huge trend lately of people being bi or gay just because it's "cool." I've gotten a lot of them to admit to it, too. It's really quite sad.

i really hate how we have to label people.

the term bi carries different meanings for different people...

most of them are barely attracted to their own gender and wouldn't really get into any kind of serious same-sex relationship... but might make out with one of them at a drunken party.

that can be said for most people really.

Of course, I know tons of chicks that have made out with chicks, but that doesn't mean that they say they're bi!

They usually say they just wanted to try it out, but I know of alot of people who say they're gay without ever really having BEEN with a chick, just havin made out with one, yaknow?

There are definitely people who are legitimately bisexual. On the other hand though, it seems that recently it has become "cool" to be bi, as part of the faux-emo-scene-hot-topic-nonconformity trend (there's an oxymoron for you). Some people who declare that they are attracted to both sexes fairly late may just have been afraid about coming out, much as many gays try to hide, ignore, or suppress their sexuality by attempting heterosexual relationships before eventually coming out. Others, though, may just be following the trend.

I have trouble believing that it is possible to be perfectly bisexual, to like both sexes as much.
To me bisexuals are just heterosexuals or homosexuals that don't really care who they have sex with. When love is concerned they would usually go towards one sex.

I just think you can't be in the middle of the sexual spectrum so to speak.

I hope that was clear...

I know this one girl who, after reading a Mange called Saiyuki, was convinced she was attracted to girls. now, 2 years later, she admits that this was only because she thought it was different and cool, but this is a trend that I am increasingly noticing amungst youths. Not that I have anything against being bisexual, mind you.

Well I don't tend label people but most of the attention whorish people aka scene people say their bi but yea its just to get attention and yea its annoying and I want to take a chainsaw to their faces not cause their so called "bisexuality" but their OMG LOOK AT MY I LIKE GIRLS AND GUYS PAY ATTENTION TO ME attitudes.

I'm hesitant to label myself as bisexual because I don't think sexuality should be such a big part of people's identities as it appears to be these days. I don't want to be pigeonholed like that; and it's not important to me to make those kinds of declarations about my sexual orientation. It's always been completely natural to me to find both men and women physically attractive, but it's not a big deal.
I can understand some people 'adopting' bisexuality as a sort of social construct, to put across open-mindedness etc. If anything this should be understood as a sign that we are becoming less bothered about things like this, but obviously it could make people who have come out as bi in the past feel that their sexuality has been hijacked.
