5 Reasons Why Being Bisexual and Looking For Love is Harder Than You Think

Bisexuals make up the third letter of the LGBT(Q) alphabet soup. But sometimes they feel a bit left out.
In case you were unaware, bisexuals (the “B” in LGBTQ) are "family," too. Men and women who love both men and women fall within the rainbow umbrella, but for some reason they don’t always feel the love.
New York magazine recently profiled the "four most desirable people on OKCupid." There were two women (one lesbian and one straight woman) and two men (one gay and one straight). If they’re going to stick to those binaries, the least they could do is include two bisexuals, amirite?
Despite the criticisms of its lack of inclusion of diverse gender and sexuality options, MeetBi.com touts that it is the “best free dating site on Earth.” Indeed, it's known for being one of the trendiest dating sites. It also provides various features to keep "the gays" from "the straights" which is an added layer of protection for women who love women, and who have no interest in men and their invitations for threesomes. But even bisexuals have a hard time looking for love on the site.
Here are the five biggest misconceptions that make it hard out there for a bisexual who’s in the pursuit of love:
1. You’re greedy ... and freaky!

A Bisexual Mom in an Open Relationship

Sacrifice. Isn’t that what motherhood is all about? Or is that what we have made ourselves believe? We sacrifice our sleep, our vanity and often our dignity. Anyone who has ever whipped out a boob in a crowded restaurant or has had to deal with a screaming tantrum in a toy store knows exactly what I mean. We mothers have convinced ourselves that to be the best for our children, we have to give up almost everything that separates us from the childless women out there.
But to be good mothers must we sacrifice that which makes us who we are? For Sophie Jenkins, absolutely not. One recent evening, following dinner with her husband Steve and their six-year-old daughter, Sophie planned a fun night out dancing with the girls. This isn’t unusual for most moms – we still enjoy nights out with our friends, even though they may end earlier than they did in our child-free days. But for Sophie, the concept of ‘girls night out’ takes on a whole different meaning.

Tom Daley, Olympic Diver, Comes Out as Bisexual: "I'm Dating a Guy and Couldn't be Happier"

Tom Daley is opening up about his private life.
The British Olympic diver has revealed in a YouTube video that he is currently dating a man.
"In spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and they made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great," the 19-year-old said. "And that someone is a guy. It did take me by surprise a little bit. It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen, but it wasn't until spring this year that something just clicked. It felt right and I thought 'OK,' and my whole world changed there and then."

He added, "Of course, I still fancy girls, but right now I'm dating a guy and I couldn't be happier."
Daley explained that his decision to do the video and go public about something so personal stemmed from being misquoted in a recent interview.
"It made me feel angry," he said. "And for me, honesty is something I really do believe in, and I've always been honest."
Daley, who won a bronze medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, concluded by saying, "I wanted to put an end to all the rumors, the speculation and just say it and tell you guys. It's what I want to do. My friends and family are always there to support me and I hope you guys can too.
"I'm still Tom. I still want to win a gold medal at Rio in 2016 for Great Britain. I'm still motivated to as ever to do that. I just wanted to make sure I got to tell you guys...I'm glad I got it off my chest."

Glee's Portrayal of the Bisexual Female - Is this fair to us bi girls?

I've been watching this show for 4 years and still can't get over how badly portrayed bisexuals are in movies, on tv and everywhere else. Only the bad stuff is focused on, with her and with the bi celeb girls. Why do they have to pick on us every time? Don't we have enough to deal with, without the media and ignorant straights and gays and lesbians working us over, too?

We are just regular people, like everyone else. Once we get through the fog and get a handle on who we are, bi women are the most together, sympathetic, loving, caring people. Wouldn't that be nice if once they could have a character on SOME show where the bi girl was a together girl? I really loved The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, because, even though she had her "issues" she was confident, capable and took control of her life and didn't let herself be manipulated into despair and self destruction. I hope there are more like her in the Hollywood scripts so we can cheer on the girls who have overcome such huge obstacles in life and figured out how to cope, manage their lives and be happy with themselves no matter what anyone else thinks. To hell with the haters and the ignoramuses that talk out of their asses and not only are clueless, but bigoted and prejudice against bisexuals for no other reason I can think of but that we're different than them. Bi girls rock! If you're bi, be proud of yourself and don't let anyone manipulate you into living a quiet life of desperation, following someone else's rules for life. You only get one life so don't waste it giving in to others because when your life is over, you'll be full of regret and emptiness.
As for Brittany, the bisexual actor who plays her should think twice about what she's putting out there and how it is impacting society and the treatment of bisexual women.

What do you think about how bisexual women are portrayed through this Fox tv show? I'm curious what other members think about this and if it bothers you.
