Does being bisexual interfere with your love life?
Do you like both female and male at the same time or you only date one at a time?
What does your partner think about it ?

Well, to answer your questions specifically...

It doesn't really interfere with my love life, but the fact that I come from poly relationships for about 15 years of my dating life, sometimes it feels odd to only have 2 partners, especially when I am so close to one of my ex's who I would love to be with again (but it isn't something we are looking to pursue).

I have always dated a variety, but since I tend to prefer women over men, I tend to date more women at once than men. I've had quite a few partners at once, and it varies. I also am skoliosexual which means I date non-gender/bi-gender/t ransgender persons as well, with of course a preference to the more female side of the spectrum (such as more feminine bigenders, non-genders who are more feminine, and m2f transgender).

My partners are both also bisexual, so of course in a lot of ways they can relate. My hubby has never been in a poly relationship prior to meeting me, so it took a while for him to come to acceptance that I had a girlfriend, but he is okay with it now. I am sure if I ever asked him about getting back together with my ex-girlfriend he would accept and tolerate it, but I know he wouldn't like it, so I haven't bothered to push that matter.

Thats pretty cool i really never met someone like you. But im glad your hubby accepts it, because i know a lot of guys who wouldnt even want to date a bisexual girl. But i dated a bisexual guy before and i myself is bisexual and my hubby accepts it too but i havent brought another female in the picture. But i love your response.

This is a really interesting question. I identify as homoflexible ; )
I mostly sleep with women but every now and then a man catches my eye.

I have been with a girl for several months and we are in a BDSM relationship. She is monogamous to me and I am open. It is a really weird situation right now because I sleep with others and she doesn't. She is a lesbian who is slightly against men. I think if I slept with women only, she wouldn't be as upset. A few days ago I started seeing another person, a guy. I think being in open relationships is VERY difficult when one partner gets jealous.

As far a bisexuality/pan-sexual ity goes I have noticed a lot of discrepancies between my relationships. When I am with a women people treat her and I equally. But with a man, people will open the door for me, pour my water first, ask him things before me and treat him more respectfully. When I am with a guy it seems like people think I "belong" to him.

I like being poly but I keep my relationships separate.

Wow, I dont know if i can be in an open relationship, im the type of girl that says "Whats mine is mine" with who ever im dating. you can say im a little greedy. But I do talk to other females and fondle a little with them but thats about it.
But I agree with open relationships being difficult with a jealous partner.
And wow really, i havent noticed that yet, well like with a female but I see that alot when your with a man. I wonder how it is when the couple is two males.

Well good luck to you as well, with your girlfriend and your new guy friend.

My partner doesn't care at all, and really tries hard to be conscious of it. Although he's a hetero male, he will read the same lesbian blogs I do and is really interested in queer culture and attending stuff like Pride! I find that being fluid in my sexuality allows for me to have a way better love life than when I tried to limit it one way or another.

When I was monogamously dating a straight guy, it wasn't a problem. Now I'm in a polyamorous relationship with two other queer folks, and it's not a problem now, either. As long as you communicate, I think things generally work out fine. Being bisexual doesn't make you automatically more likely to cheat or need to sleep around, your sexuality is personal.

You guys are cool , Im so glad im meeting new people... but I dont know for me I cant be in a relationship with a bunch of people, i think it would be too stressful. One person is enough stress for me. Ill be attracted to another person but thats about it .

I mostly date men for longer more stable relationships even if I am more physically attracted to women. It just works better that way for me. I will date people who are compatible with me regardless of gender.

Being bi doesn't interfere with my love life in any way, really. My partner and I are in an open poly relationship, he can see other girls and so can I. We haven't really explored much into other people yet, we're still trying to get a feel for our boundaries. We communicate, and that's why it works so well.

It doesn't for me, my partner knows about my likes and understands them. We are looking for a poly relationship.
