I theorize my bisexuality has made me far more promiscuous, but it may not be the same for other bisexuals...I'm not like their spokeshuman or something.

And yeah like tv shows and jokes about it... I donno, I assumed it'd be embarrassing and sad but it was fine, dare I say even fun at times.
Legs cramped up, something no one ever tells you, I wasn't prepared for that.

Since we were talking about length a page back... I prefer it if girls are tall. I'm 193-4cm myself, so its kinda nice if someone is around the same length, or not too short compared to me.

I am pretty sure I am bi and if that has made me more promiscious, I have not noticed it.

If I could choose, I'd rather date a man though.

Imagine that you’re sitting down to dinner with your family, and while everyone else gets a serving of the meal, you don’t get any. So you say “I should get my fair share.” And as a direct response to this, your dad corrects you, saying, “everyone should get their fair share.” Now, that’s a wonderful sentiment — indeed, everyone should, and that was kinda your point in the first place: that you should be a part of everyone, and you should get your fair share also. However, dad’s smart-!@# comment just dismissed you and didn’t solve the problem that you still haven’t gotten any!

The problem is that the statement “I should get my fair share” had an implicit “too” at the end: “I should get my fair share, too, just like everyone else.” But your dad’s response treated your statement as though you meant “only I should get my fair share”, which clearly was not your intention. As a result, his statement that “everyone should get their fair share,” while true, only served to ignore the problem you were trying to point out.

That is why we need feminism, and why I am not simply egalitarian.

I'd like both...like at the same time, polyamory...

I find myself falling in love with men but lust more after women...

Hey there.




My bisexuality hasn't visibly altered anything at all, really. I'd say that there are far more straight people who are more promiscuous than I, and although I've yet to bump uglies with anyone, I haven't ever felt like I need or want to have lots of random casual sex. I imagine that if and when I do come to driving my choo-choo into someone's whoo-whoo, I might have a different outlook, but currently I'm happy just waiting until Mr/Mrs/Ms/Undefined Right comes along, even if it means passing up casual flings that might come my way.

A lot of fat men would disagree with that claim. Don't use weight as an excuse, it might narrow the dating pool but it doesn't make dating impossible.

There is no such thing as a hobby without politics. "Leave politics at the door" is itself a political statement, an endorsement of the status quo and an attempt to silence dissenting voices.

Well...if all you want to do I bang brainless sorority girls, then yes, being "cut" helps a lot. Being exceptionally good looking might be more of a hindrance to finding a meaningful relationship than a help.

The only way we can ever solve anything is to look in the mirror and find no enemy

The part where I fall down on those sorts of sites is trying to write a bio. I consider myself to be the most boring person in the world, and I have no idea which of the qualities I possess--if any--would be applicable to dating. I've never been good about writing about myself in general; even at school when we had to write person statements I was completely stuck. Other people, fictional people, I can do, but myself? Nope.

My bio includes mostly a long list of stuff I enjoy, from book to movies to music to food. Also mention quickly my other interest, including climbing, video games and wargaming.
But really, the trick is that even if you do not write a long bio, by answering tons of questions, you already say a bunch of stuff about yourself!

Try writing a novelization loosely based on your life. Like what would happen if Hollywood got ahold of your movie rights, and were going to put it up on the big screen. It might be tongue and cheek, over-the-top, and silly. But the core of who you are might leak through. At the very least, some gal might get a laugh out of it.

Which is a big deal.

Also, looking at what people say they look for on their profile might help you. For instance, I found a profile I was interested where she says she is looking for people interested in travels and with fun travels stories to share, so I added a list of countries I visited to my bio. Who knows, maybe this will make someone more interested, and I cannot see how that would drive someone away.

I want to get a date with someone, not require them to seek professional help after reading. If Hollywood got the rights to me life then it wouldn't be the fun, family film of the year, it'd be 60% depressing, 30% swearing, and 10% "I'm glad I'm not part of his life."

I was probably exaggerating a little in my last post for the purposes of comedic effect (for example, the last one's probably less than 10%, and the first might be a tad less than 60%; although the swearing is probably way under what it should be...) but enough has happened for stuff to be rather difficult.

Contrary to what Easy advised a few pages back, I went for it and got good results that unfortunately turned out to be not so good results in the end, but I was noticeably happier when the good stuff happened and I'm not exactly averse to trying again any more, so my past doesn't factor in so much as simply meaning that I have very few positive things to say about myself, and definitely not enough to think of 'novelising' it.
