I recently began dating a friend who is openly bisexual. I like him a lot, and it took a lot of thought, but I'm comfortable with his sexuality. We talked about it extensively before we decided to go out. Today, I told my mom that we were dating (she knows he's bi) and, even though she's quite liberal, she said she didn't quite know how to feel about him being bi. I asked how she thought my dad would take it, and she didn't respond...that made me nervous! I want to tell my dad tonight or soon, but I just don't know how to do it.

Your father should probably know who you're dating. About it not being important that you tell your father. I can't necessarily agree with that. I CAN say that it isn't a requirement that your parents know about who you're dating, but I do encourage you to make them aware. Now, to get down to the question at hand, I would just use a calm and sincere approach and tell your father what you want to say. If your father makes a big deal out of it, don't engage in an argument--as it will only make matters worse for you and will cause unneeded drama.
My advice: tell your father, but be cautious. be calm and sincere and don't engage in arguments or heated emotions (stay detached)/0
