More and More Straight people Join Bisexual Sites to Explore Their Bisexuality
A straight person joining a bi dating site was completely unheard of a few years back, but now it’s not such a strange thing. Whichever dating site for bisexuals you may pick up, you are sure to find many straight people there. This trend is not limited to or seen majorly in one sex: both straight men and women in almost equal counts are found on dating sites meant for bisexuals.
Most of these straight people join such a site for one reason—to explore their bisexuality. Straight people joining bi dating sites is good news, but, as a bisexual, how to deal with them?
Here are some useful tips in this regard.
- Ask yourself if you are comfortable with dating straight people
The first person you should ask a question or two regarding this is you. With other bisexuals, you are not likely to feel any awkward moments regarding your sexual orientation, but this may not be always true in case of straight people, especially at the start of your relationship, no matter how many times they tell you that they are really keen on exploring bisexuality.
A straight person may come with some preconceived notions about bisexuality, most of which are likely to be completely false. This can be a turn off for some while some others may find dating a straight person a new, exciting thing.
You decide how you feel about this, and in case you are undecided, perhaps it will be best to give it a try. Who knows, it might turn out to be a really good thing.
- Don’t answer any questions you are uncomfortable with
A straight person may let curiosity get better of common sense and may ask you personal questions too early in the relationship, like number of partners you have slept with or how did your family reacted to your disclosure about your sexual orientation.

If such questions make you uncomfortable, politely and firmly tell your new partner that you are not willing to answer such questions. Also it wouldn’t hurt to draw the boundaries of your relationship; this will help your partner understand what is permissible and what not.
- Ask the reason behind their interest in dating bisexuals
Many straight guys or girls who join bisexual sites are only interested in a threesome. You may or may not be fine with this. On the other hand, there are some straight people who have felt or feel strong same-sex attraction currents beside being attractive to the opposite sex. They might be a little confused about their sexual orientation. For them, an online site for bisexual dating provides an opportunity to know themselves better.
Ask your companion what’s his or her reasons are behind dating you. This will help you, as well as your partner, understand what he or she wants from the relationship. It will also give you an idea if this is something that you would want to take forward.
With help of these tips, you can meet and start a relationship with a straight person met on a bisexual dating site.
