I've recently ended a relationship with a girl who identified as a lesbian. I'm not a lesbian- I'm bisexual, but this always seemed to be a bit of a problem for her. She would always make barbed comments about how I'd been with men before I'd been with her, and now it's stung me so much that I can't help but feel that in the future, I should just tell girls I'm gay instead of bisexual in case it happens again. What should I do? I hate thinking that I should hide who I am.
No. You definitely should not do that. You should be open about being bisexual. If someone is with you because you told them you were gay, but they wouldn’t want to be with you if they knew you were bisexual, why the actual fuck would you want to be with them anyway? You should be with someone who loves you for you, not a lie you told them. People who won’t date bisexual people, or as I and many others like to call them, assholes, aren’t worth your damn time at all. Being bisexual is a fucking wonderful thing, your sexuality is a wonderful part of who you are and there are so many people out there that will see that; you shouldn’t give those that won’t any of your time.
