Dating a lesbian
Out of my three long-term relationship, only one has been with a woman.I think it's taken me this long to date a woman because I don't meet as many gay or bisexual women in my day to day life.Plus, it's easier in a lot of ways to be in a straight relationship, at least in my experience.You don't deal with comments or hollers or the complete invasion of privacy people seem to think is OK when you're in a lesbian relationship.Maybe the numbers point to some truth to the idea that most of them do end up with straight relationships, but I would argue that more bi people would be in same-sex relationships if more gay men and lesbian women were open to them.

Which made me go: Really? I'm not arguing with the numbers, I'm just surprised the numbers are so... I assumed that, just based on how many people identify as straight, you would find the majority of bisexuals in straight relationships, but with a whopping 84 percent of them — it just seems too big of a percentage to be just that.
