How to handle a relationship with someone that is bisexual?

“G”, a man from Massachusetts, asks:

How do you think it’s best to handle a relationship with someone that is bisexual?


I recommend complete transparency and honesty!

Especially about sexual desires, and especially at the very beginning of the relationship. Say what you want to have/do and what you dont want to have/do and say it without guild or shame or expectation, and let the chips fall where they may. Sit through any emotional reaction that comes up and just ask to have a conversation (mental/rational) about it.

Share your complete sexual history

And I’d share each others complete sexual history (but not in gorey detail unless you both get off on that) so you both know exactly what you are getting into.  It builds trust that you can count on the other person even with the hard to talk about conversations...
