I don't remember the exact day Colin not his real name became part of my life. A fleetingly glimpsed neighbour I'd sometimes nod to, I knew he was a long-distance truck driver and I think he knew who I was. When our paths crossed, he would seldom meet my gaze. I don't even remember when I first heard his name. A familiar voice uttered it, though: my wife's. It wasn't by way of an introduction, although years later I did wonder how that might have gone.
Coming Out: 5 Women On The First Time They Admitted They Were Gay Or Bisexual
I don't call myself bisexual – I let my stories tell themselves | Sexuality | The Guardian
The Kinsey Scale, developed in by Alfred Kinsey, Clyde Martin and Wardell Pomeroy, uses the numbers 1 through 6 to determine an individual's sexual preference. People who place at a 0 on the scale are considered heterosexual -- those with a score of 6 are considered gay or lesbian. Bisexual men and women are between a 1 and 5 on the scale. Aside from the formal test, there are several signs and behaviors that can indicate bisexuality in men. Counselor and nurse Kathy Labriola asserts that some men are circumstantial bisexuals, meaning they live as straight men most of the time, but will display attraction to the same sex when an opposite-sex partner is not available. This is common for men during time spent in jail or in the military. Men who have exhibited recreational bisexuality in the past, or who have had sexual relations with another man under the influence of drugs or alcohol, are more likely to repeat the behavior during another bout of intoxication.
A look into the experiences of bisexual women who happened to fall in love with men. I've only ever been with my boyfriend and one woman, so it was a big deal when I wrote down that I was bisexual on that form. At least for me; it was the first time I had identified myself in that way.
I guess it all started when I was about years old. We just had new neighbors move in across the street. At the time I did not care to much about meeting new people but my parents forced me to go over because there was a boy there my age named Luke.
