I have always been an advocate of online dating, for a variety of reasons.
I think it's a great way to meet people you would never otherwise encounter, see places you may never have heard of and build confidence.
Now, while this doesn’t sound like some major Nelly and Kelly drama, it is to me as a newly bisexual man. So, do I leave it out and tell people in the course of online conversation?
It’s a minefield on what is a predominantly straight dating site as I just know (or assume) that if I put ‘bisexual’ on my bio, het women are going to run a mile screaming “HE SUCKS DICK AS WELL!!! Even this sounds positively terrifying, as there is a chasm between chatting to someone online and talking in the flesh and these kind of intrinsic details about yourself may be conveyed in wholly the wrong manner. I think it’s probably a topic best left for discussion in person. While this dating site is all very well if you’re looking for some quick sexual gratification in the back of a grubby Ford Focus on a Wednesday lunchtime, dating as a bisexual man is a whole different ballgame. ) from 55-year-old men who obviously missed the bit where I put a maximum age of 40.
Not that it’s proved much ‘use’ to me so far, as my love life is still as barren as Ken Livingstone’s political career is looking. You’re not given an option of sexuality in your profile – even though 23% of the UK population don’t class themselves as 100% heterosexual, with this rising to 49% among 18-24 year-olds.
So, it comes down to the dilemma of whether you write it in your bio or not.Welcome to Girl Friends Meet, a new and exciting casual dating and social network exclusively for Lesbian, Bi-Sexual and Bi-Curious Women.At Girl Friends Meet you'll get a secure, fun and engaging online community to browse women in your area,interact, chat and share interests.

Not that it really matters, anyway, as the number of online conversations I’ve had in six months has rocketed to the dizzy heights of two. The other bisexual men (in my experience) tend to all be anonymous and only there so they can chat to you about what you’d do to their wives as they were doing something to you, while concurrently they have a Barclays at the other end. There’s also probably the whole ‘Bi Now, Gay Later’ thing going on – if you need that translating, it means many gay and lesbian people think us bis are merely on a ‘journey’ towards all-out ‘gayness’, like some desperate contestant who really can’t sing but has been put through to Judges’ Houses for the humiliation-led humour of it all. THEN, there’s the even more terrifying platform of social media.
