Reading some of the above answers showed a rather entertaining mix of beliefs concerning bisexuality, mostly just attacks on it vaguely disguised as definitions. I don't care about the fact that you can write well, it doesn't persuade me that I'm 'mentally ill' at all. Bisexuals, like me, are simply people capable of falling in love with people of either gender. It's a simple matter of love, and NOT a step towards being gay. I acknowledge the fact that there are a lot of people out there who claim to be bisexual when they're really straght/gay/lesbian, but the majority of these are attention seekers. I am NOT to be classed in this category; if I was an attention seeker, everyone would know. I haven't told more than two people in the whole world so far, excluding all the people reading this. And, contrary to popular opinion, bisexual people can hold down relationships with one person at a time. They don't find the need to run off and have sex with the first good looking person they meet. That person is a bigot, not a bisexual. Just because some bigots are bisexual doesn't mean that all bisexuals are bigots.

In conclusion, I'd like to say that bisexuality is a perfectly normal choice that, whether they like to admit it or not, almost 95% of the population of the world is sitting on.
I've always wanted children, ever since I can remember. I've fallen desperately in love with a girl, so deep that it hurts every time I see her. But I fantasize over men and prefer their bodies. I am bisexual - get over it.

One who is attracted to both sexes.

This most certainly does NOT mean that they are all total whores who sleep with everyone that they see.

Both guys and girls can be bisexual.

Bi guys are not: Really gay just trying to be normal
Bi girls are not: Just saying their bi to get in a guys pants.

I do understand that the above things CAN happen, but you should not assume that every bi person fits into one of those catagories.
Samantha found that she was attracted to girls, thus being bisexual, but she still continued to date her boyfriend. They got married and had two kids.

Jeff started dating Sara, but he found that along with the fact that he liked Dave he was getting mild sexual feelings for him too. He decided that he was bisexual. Eventually, he broke up with Sara and asked Dave out, who turned him down. They are still friends.

The ability to be attracted (romantically, physically, etc) to people of either sex.

It does not mean:

-Slut/sex fiend
-Desperate
-Incapable of having a monogamous relationship
-Equally attracted to both sexes
-Polyamorous
Jill is bisexual, but she goes out with more girls than guys. Right now though, she and her boyfriend have been together for about four months.

Alex is a homophobe and replaces the word "stupid" with "gay" in his speech, then lusts after Jill because "omg bi girls are teh hawtness."

A person (man or woman; the common myth being women are more likely to be bisexual than men) who can be attracted sexually to people of both genders. While it is true that some people will experience a period of bisexuality in the transition from hetero to homosexuality (or back to heterosexuality), bisexuals are not usually in this 'phase' but in it for the long haul.
Some bisexuals will view themselves as being eager for fun with either gender; others will tell you they just dont mind and have no preference, or aren't bothered by encounters with either gender (not to be confused with those mythical people who change their sexuality because they can't get any, or are just a superslut/superwhore - altho some bisexuals are superwhores, but so are straight and gay people)
Some bisexuals may be attracted to any gender at any time; some may consciously opt for men, women, or both at different times depending on their mood (ie on a night out a bisexual may aim to hook up with a man)
I'm bisexual, and im one of the latter ones of the above sentance.

Someone who is into both men and women.
Nicole Van Avery slept with a boy one night, and got eaten out by the girl the next.

A person who is attracted romantically and sexually to both genders; male and female.

It's the most uncommon sexuality, as people are either heterosexual (most commonly) or homosexual.

Often enough, bisexuals experience some form of discrimination, doubt or questioning. Many homophobics do not like the "homosexual" aspect of being bisexual, and there are also people who think bisexuals are:

* Greedy.

This is bullshit, because you can't be "greedy" because you're ATTRACTED to both sexes, doesn't mean you HAVE both sexes. Plus even if you do have both sexes, it's their choice to be with you, right?

* Can't make up their mind/sexually confused.

This can actually be true, but not all bisexuals are confused. Is it that hard to like both?

* Only do it for attention.

While it's true you get some girls who claim to be bisexual to appeal to guys/guys claim to be bisexual to appeal to girls. Again. It doesn't mean all bisexuals are "heterosexuals in disguise".

* Like both males and females equally.

Again. SOME do, but not all. Some bisexuals prefer one gender over the other, it doesn't diminish their bisexuality though. It's possible for a man to prefer women, but would not mind having a sexual and romantic relationship with other men also. It's what bisexuality is all about.

BEST of BOTH worlds.
Bisexual male who prefers women to men, but that doesn't mean I'm straight. At least I don't believe it does. I'd still date and eff another man.

Being bisexual means you can have emotional, sexual, physical, spirtual, and/or mental attractions to people of either gender. (1) It's just as natural as heterosexuality or homosexuality, even if you don't choose to accept it as such. Being bisexual is NOT just something that people do for attention or something people to be unique, and it does NOT mean that you aren't ready to accept being gay, haven't "came out" completely yet, can't make up your mind, are a sex pervert, are so low that you just take whatever you can get, that you always cheat and have to have multiple relationships, and/or you engage in orgies every night. There ARE people, though, who do pretend that they're bisexual to try to be more "hardcore" or "edgy." (2) We are NOT all like that, and anyone who is like that is NOT actually bisexual, and so you shouldn't consider any REAL bisexual people to be like that. I'm sure some bisexual people do engage in orgies and stuff and do have multiple relationships at once, but they are in the minority. There are straight and gay people like that too.

Bisexuality is just as valid a sexual orintation as heterosexuality or homosexuality, and it is your own decision whether you choose to accept it as such or not, and I can't make that decision for you. I ask only that you don't, as many people do in this time we live in, judge bisexual people or consider them worth less.

Have a nice day.
1. Bob is bisexual, because he used to be dating Jane, and now he's going to ask out John. It's great that he can be so open about it.

2. Susan tried to get more attention by suddenly kissing random girls and acting bisexual. Unfortunately, with how low a level of sophistication the majority of today's society has fallen to, she did get more attention from unintelligent guys. Makes us real bisexual people look bad, doesn't it?

I'm bisexual, and I love it.

"Bisexual" is a term used to refer to those who are sexually and emotionally attracted to members of both genders.

Unfortunately in today's society bisexuals are not taken seriously. There are 3 types of "bisexual" (only one of which is genuine);

1. The genuine bisexual. This needs no further explanation.

2. The gay bisexual. This is someone who is actually homosexual but tells people they are bisexual to be able to have relationships with their own gender while feeling more socially accepted than they would if the truth was known about their sexual preference.

3. The attention seeker. These are mostly promiscuous females. Males tend to have a habit of liking seeing girls being sexual with other girls while still liking males. Desperate females claim bisexuality to get sex with superficial guys. If you are male, stay away from these girls. Actually, stay away from these girls no matter who you are.
1. Sarah is in a relationship with Sean. She loves him but she has deep feelings for her long lost friend, Cat, too.

2. Andrew has never been attracted to females, but he is dating one. His friends know him as bisexual, however.

3. Emma has trouble getting guys. One day she tells some guys that she is bisexual and they are impressed. She then tells everyone she meets and gets sex whenever she wants it...until she dies of syphilis. AHAHAHA!
