i have no idea if i'm bisexual, or heterosexual, or homosexual or what..

i used to think i was bi...i like girls and boys...boys sometimes more, but i also like girls, i just don't show it as much, ya know?

my boyfriend doesn't belive i'm bisexual, so now i'm starting to wonder if i'm just a nymphomaniac or something...

gah. so confused.

I think if you think you are bi, you probably are. I think bi is very natural. It can be a problem cause it's hard for other people to understand, but to me it just seems like the way to be. Also you can be different kinds of bi, that is, more inclined toward one sex or another. Not only that it can vary from time to time- maybe day to day, maybe month to month.

I'm sorry I don't know how to handle the thing with your boy friend. In my imagination I think if I was a straight guy and my girl friend wanted to go out with another girl, I'd say "fine" doesn't that seem less threatening than going out with other guys?

good luck

To you perhaps, but not necessarily to everyone else. In any event, in a monogamous relationship dating anyone other than the person you are committed can definitely be detrimental to the relationship.

And while I felt that was important enough to address, we're both missing what was actually asked.

i_eat_postcards, why would your boyfriend doubt you? I realize you may not be very outwardly attracted to women, but I'm not entirely sure what one would have to do to prove their sexuality to someone else.

Especially if you're in a monogamous relationship (I'm assuming the monogamous bit here -- correct me if I'm wrong). As I mentioned above, there isn't really room for another person if that's the case, bisexual or not.
