Ok... I have recently come to realize that I'm bi. I just barely began to admit it to myself in the last month. I had been confused about my sexuality for the last year or two and in retrospect, I now realize that I was showing signs of it much earlier than that.

I have a girlfriend whom I love deeply. She was the first person I told. (and at this point, the only person) She is bi too and that really helped me to get the courage to accept my own sexuality. She is fine with it and has been such a great help. I plan on marrying her. I suppose the problem is, it's more than a little frustrating to expand the playing feild after you've already been taken out of the game. I would never cheat on her. I just sometimes wish I could know what it is like to be with a guy. Is that wrong?

No, there's nothing wrong with that. In fact, if this is gonna be on your mind for a while, you SHOULD go out and "play the field", just to see if you can get it out of your system and then settle down with your girlfriend. But don't let a good relationship turn into resentment by not exploring other relationships, ok? Good luck.

If you love your girlfriend and you're happy to be with her, then the fact that you've never been with a guy shouldn't really matter. However, I do understand that burning curiosity that you feel inside about it. If you are going to try and hook up with a guy, do the decent thing and break up with your g/f first. No one deserves to be cheated on. And don't find a man just to experiment on. No one likes to be treated like a lab rat. And, as usual, I'll give you the advice about protection. Condoms etc. Check out these articles by Miz S and the gang:
