I've seen dozens, literally dozens... and they're all really, really ugly - to me at least.

I'm not really complaining lol, but it seems funny.

why are you using a forum to complain about random people's sexual orientations on anon?

Perhaps if you were unsure about what you were or wanted to experiment, it's less awkward to do it online?

'Bisexual' does not go in inverted commas.

(I know I just did it, but that's because I was talking about it as a word, not as an adjective, blah blah etc.)

Optimistic answer: Because there are plenty of people out there.

Pessimistic answer: My experience at uni taught me a large proportion of lesbian and bi-sexual women state they are as such simply due to difficulty of attracting the opposite sex. Once they do they quite often become heterosexual again. IIRC this was stated by a lesbian last year that she did so due to her inability to attract a man, which is still a tad controversial. I know of a fair few women who did such at my own uni. Also I feel a ever decreasing number of women feel like men are attracted to bi girls. I remember about 5 years back when virtually every girl on dating sites, especially the slutty types would claim to be bi without ever getting with another woman.

Because sexuality is on a scale and being at one extreme of the scale is actually rarer than being somewhere between the extremes (hence why a lot of people who identify as straight have one or two people of the same gender they would "turn gay" for. Not everyone, but still a good number). For some reason (maybe social expectations) women seem to either be more likely to be towards the middle than men or just more likely to be open about it.

Have faith! I've never been exposed to anyone saying anything like that myself, and can assure you the genuine bisexuals are out there still and not all just pretending to be until we can attract a man (I've never had problems attracting men, yet I'm unashamedly into both men and women. Boyfriend was the first person I ever came out to, after a year and a half long relationship ). Most of my friends are also just genuinely bisexual (maybe it's just the circles I run in?) so from where I am at least there seems to be a lot of us, both male and female.

They are not really Bisexual, they just change their profile orientation when they see you checking them out (but can't change it to 'gay' as they don't wanna ruin any potential connection with a 'real man' that might want to message them).

Mehhh seeing I know four who where all engaged to guys and fully straight when I last saw them.... with only one being bi..... meh I think it still to a degree depends on a persons ability to attract the opposite sex when you get to college and uni.

I do understand the vast majority of people state they are bi actually are. I tend to find those who cry it from the rooftops or to get into certain social circles are more questionable.

Some comments on here are so stupid -_-

Even if a bi person does meet someone and has a relationship with them, they're still bi. Dating the same gender does not make you temporarily gay. Dating the opposite gender does not make you temporarily straight. Your relationship status and sexual activity do not determine your sexual orientation. By that logic, all single people are aromantic, all people who aren't having sex 24/7 are asexual, and straight people who are single or virgins or both aren't really straight. It's stupid logic really.

Anyone of any sexuality or gender can go on dating sites. End of. :yy:

Well lots of those 'bisexuals' on dating sites are probably not bisexual at all, they just want male attention.

Bisexuality and experimenting with the same sex is more accepted in society when it comes to females. Hence they have less reason to hide it than bisexual men who are constantly accused of being half-in, half-out the closet.

Seriously? You really want to contribute to bisexual erasure?

So you deny the fact that being bisexual is trendy nowadays and attention seekers pretend to be bisexual to attract male attention?

I think you have no right to judge the validity of the sexuality of someone you've never met.
