Recently, my "bi-sexual" (and please don't get mad at my using quotation marks, as I do have a reason for it) friend came out to me. By this, I don't mean that she told me she was bi (I knew that before we were friends) but instead, she confessed to me that she had just been telling people she was bisexual to get attention and make herself seem more interesting. I've always thought that sexuality was a really personal, emotional, mental and spiritual thing, so I was pretty shocked that she was just using it to make herself more popular. I was just wondering if any one else has had a similar experience with some one faking their sexuality (as a means of making themselves "cooler", and not for self-protection, of course) and if anyone had any ideas as to how to approach her about this?
