Maybe your friend isn’t comfortable being your sounding board; maybe she senses you’re looking to form a camaraderie against another person that she’s not interested in joining. If you really want your man to open up and talk about his sexuality, you will need to show him that it isn’t an issue for you. One bisexual told me he has a friend who, for several years, received a ton of matches from women on dating apps when he was listed as straight. For instance, LGBTQ+ rights charity Stonewall uses the term “bi” to refer to people who “have a romantic and/or sexual attraction towards more than one gender. Again, we’ve been given no indication that he wants to continue these relationships, or that he wants to deviate from your enforced monogamy.

Fewer girls were out, but if there was speculation that they were lesbian or bisexual they were deemed a freak and not to be associated with.However, being “out” in some settings and to people who react negatively can add to the stress experienced by gay and bisexual men, and can lead to poorer mental health and discrimination. But at certain times, I can look back at things, add them up, and finally see what was, well, right in front of my face.

I wish I hadn’t allowed my school friends to push it aside and repress my attraction to other women.We do talk about other things, but I always feel like it’s fun to banter about our own lives and others’ too, to an extent, and now I’m so unsure of what our friendship is supposed to be, and I have no idea what to do. Bring up bisexuality and talk about it in a positive manner (if this is indeed something that you can do).

You likely have good intentions, but it's important to remember that they don't have to be honest with you. Regardless of gender, bisexual individuals face stigma and erasure, but these challenges can manifest differently for men compared to women.The strain society puts on bisexual men often forces them to be in relationships with women without expressing their true sexual preferences.

You could even practice coming out to your family and friends with a trusted therapist who can help you navigate potential reaction scenarios. With over 15 years of experience, she specializes in creating safe spaces, respectful of marginalized identities, at the high school and college levels.

Unfortunately, as optimistic as popular progressive media narratives may be, the challenges for bisexuals persist in a quiet way that is often overlooked. In the five years we have been together, my feelings for her have never changed based on her gender.
