Don't want her to be the one that got away.

There is this girl that I'm friends with maybe more but we really never discussed things...I know that bad but. I have mentioned her before, but was really never able to have her make a commentment. She is bi. Maybe I wan't what I can't have, but despite her being crazy, she has a heart of gold, is into cars, is intelegent and is beautiful. I hope that I have not fallen in love, but the truth may not be able to be denied. It seems like maybe I should move on, but it seems dificult. Then again nothing worth waiting for will come easily.

Ahh it's just been a long day, maybe I'm letting emotions get to me but. what can I say.

You will find a picture of her in one of my earliar threads and she is NOT the blonde one that scared me lol. She is the one who's name I googled.


I googled this girls name, what language is this page?

What's her sexual preference have to do with anything? Unless it's some way of implying that she's not interested in people of your gender (which it can't be, since she likes both) then it's really not a salient piece of information and only serves to marginalize her. Labeling anyone by their sexual preference doesn't really serve any constructive purpose in really any situation.

That aside, why not try and talk to her? Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Besides, women like a guy who is to the point and assertive and so forth.

Personally I would stay away. But you have to decide for yourself. This characteristic of her is not going to change. A marriage is based on both parties being committed to the other individual. For myself, being married to someone who is not committed to the relationship exclusively is not acceptable.

For some folks that might be OK I suppose, but in every case that I personally know of one of the parties wanted exclusivity and the other just wanted whomever he or she could get.

Is your self esteem really so low that you would settle,nay crave the dubious companionship of Ms.Borderline Personality?

This BI nonsense is simply a crutch for her own flagging ego lack of a cohesive persona,and a red warning light for future trouble....of course if you thrive on drama and lead a boring life........have at it.

Until YOU evolve you'll always attract the weirdos,so just use'em to get your rocks off until you wake up.

Oh, I thought this was about a car you wanted to buy . . .

Well, good luck. If this one doesn't work out, another one will be along shortly.

Why? I know girls with bi men and vice versa. Just because I am bi and married doesn't men I will step out on my wife with another man and just because my wife is bi doesn't mean she will step out with another woman. Bi means they are attracted to either sex. Doesn't mean they will form a bond with one or the other sex. So yes, you can have her even if she is bi.

CRAZY is a big drawback. Run for the hills.

Bisexuality, while the smallest of the sexual orientations, isn't "nonsense" or "a crutch" and generally isn't really even effective as a popularity move. Someone else in this thread also mentioned that their feelings and sexual preference don't mean that they're going to be more trouble than others, and that's true.

People who appropriate minority sexual orientations in a manner central to their personality are generally highly stigmatized, and this does have an impact on the successful social and emotional development of those individuals. Attitudes like your -- blind derision bordering on hatred of anyone "different" -- certainly don't help matters. The perceived interpersonal/relationship problems stem from the availability heuristic in your mind, and those examples only became available in the first place because so many of those problems are adjustment-related. And the adjustment problems come from everyone they meet during the time they express a sexual identity (even if they don't express it TO anyone) giving them **** about it!

Sexual orientation has nothing to do with someone's ability to maintain a healthy relationship. It has nothing to do with whether someone has a "lack of a cohesive persona" or anything of that nature. The only thing it has to do with is who a person might be willing to spend a few hours in bed or the backseat of a car with.

If you want to attack this woman (I don't know the whole story) do it on her history, etc. but as soon a you start attributing those characteristics to her sexual preference, you're committing a great social and personal injustice to her.

Ahh, put in my place by the defender of the misunderstood.

You are absolutely correct in many of your statements,I know plenty of otherwise faithful husbands who stop at the "buddy booths"on their way home for a quick handjob,so what?My wife and I used to be into the Swinger thing,and matters may have proceeded beyond the exploration stage,on BOTH sides,big deal..........

But mentally ill is mentally ill and I like to think I have enough experience to sense it.

As to the rest of your tirade,shove it.

No, just using myself and the wife as an example.

Nobody. We got married by a Justice of the Peace. Besides, bi people are NOT necessarily cross dressers.

No ****. I mean, can this stuff all be real???? Dating is not freaking astro-physics for gods sake.


Anyway, if you choose to hang stuff like this out there for opinions you are going to get one: I checked the link to the picture, and that chick is one of the least attractive women I have ever seen. I mean not in my drunkest, most desperate hour would I even consider........well, you get the point.

Cool Two quotes

Two quotes on the "bisexual" thing:

"Being bisexual means you just doubled your chances of a date on Saturday night."
(-- Woody Allen)

"Gee, I just thought my wife was cool."
(-- David Schwimmer's Ross Geller on Friends, ruefully commenting on his ex-wife's penchant for looking at women and her openness to a threesome)

My second wife claimed she was bi. And like Ross, I thought that was cool. Later I found out her "lack of a cohesive persona" was indeed "a red warning light for future trouble," as Carleton put it so neatly.

That's not to say anyone whose gate swings both east and west is a disaster . . . but be careful.
