Lusiphur: It's never too late. I know it's hard, and it's terrifying, but you'll move on, and one day you'll meet someone new that will think you're the most awesome thing ever, and it will have all been worth it.

More to the point, I've never actually told this to anyone except my ex-wife, current fiance, and brother, but I'm a straight-identified male who is occasionally attracted to other men.

This is probably not the best place to come out, but since I've been stuck at home recovering form a surgery, it'll have to do.


I'm probably about the same as you are, sexually.

I hate to define emotions but if I had to I'd say that I'm about 90% hetero. I often find myself attracted to other men, however never sexually. I'll find them attractive if they are strong, confident guys and yeah, I'll admit that I'll find them attractive if they are good looking and have good bodies. However, I never fantasize about being with another guy sexually. And it's not because I'm repressing anything. I spent years searching my heart before I finally understood how I felt.

Thing is, I'm really happy with the way I am. I love being with women in all ways. But I love being around guys too, especially guys I'm slightly attracted to. I've considered what a relationship with a guy might be like, but since I have no desire to even kiss another guy I've never bothered to pursue that. To me, a relationship with another guy would be a very close friendship. And in some ways I have that with some of my friends. Perhaps it seems dishonest to some that I'm hanging out with guys I'm attracted to and not telling them but it's not like I'm going to take advantage of them. Plus most of the guys I hang out with are, like me, very secure in their sexuality and not bothered by the idea of male contact as long as it isn't intimate.

The only person I've ever told this to is my mum, who has never judged me or treated me any different for it.

I came out as bisexual 2 years ago

(my wife knew for decades)

My friends' response was exactly what it should be

"so what ?" - nobody that mattered cared at all. It is only relevant to your partner. Society does not care (unless you live in a repressive society in which case - I suggest moving)

factoryconnection: WTFDYW: There are no kids. We're both in our 50's, so I guess we both figure it's to late to start all over again. I have considered finding a "fark" buddy from time to time though.

It sounds like you still have sexual desire, perhaps still for her, and she has none. If she cares enough about you to stay in your life, she should care enough to enter therapy (couples or solo) to be at least able to express why that is. Spouses are not supposed to be unilaterally opposed to doing anything whatsoever that the other spouse wants... that's not exactly a partnership. I doubt that she's just being a jerk; there is an underlying problem or set of problems at play.

Now that being said my wife and I are in our mid-30s with three little kids; I don't know what it is like to be 50 something. However, most couples experience their lowest relationship satisfaction at my point in their marriage, but wife and I are completely happy together and continue to have frequent sex. We talk about it regularly and do our best to stay on the same page on our relationship. I hope that, if you both want to be together, that this drought can be overcome to your mutual benefit.


Oh I definately have the desire. The problem started when menopause set in for her. Her desire went down hill fast. We just don't talk about it anymore. We still love each other very much, there's just no matress mamba.

"Initial" is the word that, when used before "post" will invoke the "weeners" filter.

A funny one is when you write the hull number of an aircraft carrier (CVN) out, say the USS Teddy Roosevelt (72):coont2

The filter is so smart that it reads the "v" as a "u," deletes the space, and 1337 re-spells the 7 into a "t."

I'm bi. So's my husband. We both grew up in very repressive churchy-type families. For most of our lives, we've been the only ones who knew about each other. Nowadays, my sisters and his mom know and are all okay with it. I haven't said anything to my mom, but not because I care what she'd think. Quite the opposite, actually... I don't give enough of a flying fark to waste my time and energy bothering with the argument.

Because there are doofus morons out there who care about writing the initial remark, that's why. I used to read texts from last night, until I remembered I'm not prepubescent, and the only people who comment on them write "initial remarking, yay (except they actually write what gets caught in the filter)!!!" or make terrible your mom jokes. I think drew got tired of it and it became funny.

Diogenes: thelordofcheese: I think coming out is stupid. Unless you're attracted to someone what concern is it? It's just as stupid as other people trying to keep you from dating people to whom you are mutually attracted.

It means something different for each person. For some, it's no big deal because everyone figured it out already. For some, there may be negative consequences - with friends, family, work, etc.

It's not always a big announcement with a party and pink streamers. For me, it was a decision to be honest about it if asked. Otherwise it was no one's business. But that is just one example of coming out.




I'm guessing if people are asking you if you're gay...it is probably not necessary to come out

KingKauff: In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max's toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew School play. In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog... When my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I got nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out... But the worst thing I ever done - I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, t-t-then, I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa - and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life.

hershy799: susansto-helit: I came out as bisexual in high school. At 34, I still am. This confuses people.

Count me as one of the confused. Why are you still in high school????


There are a lot of people, some of whom post in these Fark threads, that don't see bisexuality as a real thing. They'll argue that men can't be bi, for example, or that bisexuals are "really gay" but "in denial."

Or, if you're bisexual, you'll tell your gay friend that you're bi, and he'll say, "Yeah, I used to be bi, too" or "Yeah, I used to think I was bi, too." A lot of people in the LBGTQ community think bisexuality is just a "waystation" before a person becomes "fully gay" or "realizes that they were gay all along."

And, to be fair, this does SOMETIMES happen. Some gay period do go through a period where they think they're bisexual before they realize that they were really exclusively gay all along, and some people's orientation does change over time. The problem lies in assuming that that's how it works for every bisexual, and therefore expecting a bisexual to stop being bisexual eventually.
