Hello all,
I've read the articles on bisexuality but still have questions. Is it likely that one is bisexual if they fall hard for a specific person of the same sex and at times find the bodies or features of the same sex attractive?
Thanks!

I'm not 100% sure I understand your question. Are you asking if bisexual people find people of their same sex very attractive? Or if they will fall for a single person?

If those are your questions then, yes! Bisexual simply means that if you are a woman that you do not ONLY find other women or other men attractive, that you find both attractive. It doesn't mean that you date multiple people at one time. That's a totally different thing called polyamory.

Do you want to give this a read and come back with any additional questions? The Bees and...the Bees: A Homosexuality and Bisexuality Primer

Thanks Andy!
Let me rephrase. Can one's bisexuality be based on feelings for a specific person (i.e. not having fallen for other women)?

There's not just one definition of bisexuality. And really, if you don't want to label yourself, then there's no reason to.

You like somebody. That person happens to be the same sex as you. You can just go with that. It's not like you have to go register with the Regional Committee on Same-Sex Attraction or anything.
