In the past I've seen stereotype after stereotype claim that bisexual people are less likely to be faithful because of their attraction to both sexes. I'm just genuinely curious as to how many people would be less likely to date an openly bisexual person, and whether it's because of the aforementioned stereotype. Please explain why or why not in the comments, and at least attempt not to be biphobic, stating your reasons with a little politeness.
I have nothing against their sexuality nor do I question their faithfulness, but I wouldn't want to date one for health reasons. I wouldn't know how safe or careful he was when having sex with men so I'd want proof that he's clean. Anyone can have STDs but I feel like they have double the exposure if they're highly active on both sides. I'm probably wrong on this but that's how I feel about it.
I'm currently sleeping with a bisexual who still has yet to tell me (I found out accidentally on my own). It took me two days to get over it but whats done is done. He practices safe sex every time we make love so I feel comfortable with him.
No, but I much less likely to date any slut, and if she is a bisexual and a virgin then I would prefer her on slutty straight girl, and if she is not first hand, then a bisexual there is a chance that she been only with other girls, and I would in fact be much more okey with that, in comparison to if she been with other guys. I do believe that bisexuals are less likely to be faithful, but like I said I am also more forgiving if it's another girl an not another guy. I guess that I do not see a girl as a true replacement for me, and I do not see lesbian sex as important as PIV, for better and for worse. Anyway if she is a bisexual I want to know about it, and then decide. Anyway I would add that so far all the bisexuals that I was knowing was slutty.
Well I'm a straight guy so I like straight women, simple as that.
Besides wouldn't the bi girl always have that one side of her sexuality unfulfilled if she got in a relationship and stayed loyal? Unless you did threesomes or something, but I don't like sharing my partners with anyone.
I wouldn't care, I like both but I date guys, I wouldn't mind a man telling me he dated other men before me same with women, only It wouldn't be "dating" because I wouldn't pursue a relationship with a woman
Nope. I'm bisexual and I would date anyone regardless of being bisexual or not. I want to add that if I choose to be with someone it's because I want to be with them, it doesn't mean I'll suddenly want sex with someone else. Being bi doesn't automatically make me a cheater, it just means I like someone regardless of gender.
Im bi and never cheated on anyone I was with. It is a stereotype. Id date someone who was bi as well and it wouldn't bother me. There is no particular "group" of people who is more likely to cheat than the others. Women are not more likely to cheat than men, nor someone who is gay/les/bi are more likely to cheat than someone who is straight. Anyone who is selfish, immature about relationships or dishonest is more likely to cheat, plain and simple.
I am pansexual, and I would prefer to date a bisexual or pansexual. I also wouldn't mind him/her/them seeking out a partner of another gender if they needed or wanted to. Apparently that makes me weird, but I don't want to limit my partners.
I'm Less likely to because I'm a Christian and don't agree with that, I'd want to date someone who shared my faith. If it was the case they were simply attracted to the same gender but would never act on it as they see it as a sin, I'd be fine with that.
