While some women have reservations about dating a bisexual man, there are a number of helpful tips and pointers that will allow the relationship to run much more smoothly. Some women are able to take the news that their prospective partner is bisexual with a grain of salt, while others will struggle. By reading on to learn more about the following tips, you can avoid falling victim to common misconceptions and pitfalls.
Women often make the mistake of assuming that they know about the sexuality of their prospective boyfriend or husband based off hearsay or their own observations. But if you have not heard the truth from the proverbial horse’s mouth, don’t make assumptions. If you have reason to believe that he is bisexual, confront him and ask any questions that you may have. This allows you to proceed in a manner that is fully informed and if you are wondering why he hasn’t told you, bear in mind how difficult this process can be.
There is a tendency to believe that a bisexual man is at greater risk of being unfaithful, but a bisexual man is no more or less likely to cheat on you. If you are concerned and you have yet to discuss the matter in an open forum, there is nothing wrong with letting him know that the rules do not change because of his sexual orientation.
A man who experimented sexually at a young age may not have the same urges, but may also still identify as a bisexual. When he is willing to admit to past experimentation, your best bet is to remain supportive. Overreacting to the news may cause him to believe that you cannot handle a long term relationship with him and while you can ask a few questions, there is no need to fly off the handle over past occurrences.
If he’s already been forthcoming about his sexuality and being 100 percent honest about where he stands, you should not be experiencing any form of jealousy. When you find yourself continuing to struggle with his revelations, this usually means that you are the one who needs to take a deeper look within, not him. This is a sign that you will not be able to deal with it and you should take off before you waste too much of his time.
For some men, this may mean watching gay or bisexual porn together. Others may want a “hall pass” to indulge in their extracurricular fantasies while others are turned on by a woman who wants to date bisexual men. By deciding how far you are willing to go to make him happy during the early stages of a budding relationship, you can see if you are on the same page or if he is more broad minded than yourself.
