People will ask YOU questions, too Jane, Joanne*, a recent graduate of Northwestern University who has dated a bisexual guy, and Danielle, a recent graduate of Harvard University who is currently dating a bisexual guy, have all had experiences with people asking them questions about their relationships.
“There has to be trust, attraction, love and ground rules.” Jane also says that neither of her relationships ended because of either guy’s sexuality.
“These relationships ended because of conventional relationship problems, which is something I think some people don’t get,” she says.
“My first boyfriend who was bisexual told me that he had dated more women than men, and that was important to him when defining his sexuality,” she says.
“In contrast, my second bisexual boyfriend was attracted to both guys and girls equally, and he thought that was an important part of being bisexual.” Smith also reminds collegiettes that being bisexual says nothing about a person’s promiscuity.
“Before you talk, make sure you are both aware that you are having a serious conversation about sexual orientation and your relationship status, and make sure that it’s at an appropriate time,” she says.
