    The capability of being attracted to more than one gender does not equal a requirement to act on it.

    Maybe 20 years ago, I went to a conference on bisexuality, and at one workshop we went around and introduced ourselves, several people wondered aloud if they "counted. "  Do you count as bi if you're mostly attracted to one sex, but get involved with the other maybe once every ten years?   If you've never had sex with someone of your own gender, but feel the attraction?  If you like romantic relationships with one gender, but just sex with the other?

    By the time we got around the circle, we were laughing and realizing how alike and how different we were, and how we all "count."

    •  "Count," oh, that word. (6+ / 0-)

      That's totally a word I've used to hedge on my sexuality. And honestly, I don't know. I identify as gay because that's ultimately what I want. When I crawl in bed at night and hug my pillow to sleep, I fantasize about it being a dude. But then, my greatest relationship was with a woman, and I've fantasized about having a boyfriend/husband and having a threesome with a woman. So, I don't know. The only thing I can say I am definitively is lonely.
