Bisexual people have shared the differences that they’ve experienced in dating different genders.

The group discussed on an AskReddit thread which asked the differences they had noticed.

The main difference that everyone picked up on was how straight forward men were, especially gay men.

“Guys just tend to be more forward,” one person writes. “Gay culture tends to be more direct, particularly around sex stuff.”

Other’s noticed that it was more difficult to for them to flirt and spark with a relationship with women.

“Bi male here,” one person wrote. “50,000 times harder to have sex with women than to have sex with men.”

Someone else added: “Bi female here. Agree 100%.”

However, someone wrote that women were often more likely to be upfront if they had an issue.

“The girls I’ve dated have actually been significantly quicker to tell me when somethings wrong,” someone wrote. “The guys I’ve dated bottled it in sometimes for a month before I even knew anything was up.”

Other’s noticed that being bisexual, they were more likely to be asked for a threesome.

One woman explained: “Men dating bisexual women are a lot more likely to ask for a threesome.

“Men dating bisexual women who ask for a threesome repeatedly … don’t date bisexual women for very long.”

Another agreed: “A lot of men ask me for threesomes when they hear that I’m bi. I always agree on the condition that I’m the only woman in the threesome. Then that question never gets asked again.”

Others noted that they often experienced bi-erasure in relationships.

“My ex-boyfriend acted that way and wanted me to ‘admit’ that I prefer men over women,” someone wrote. “It used to p*ss me off a lot. Apparently the concept of bisexuality is difficult to grasp for some.”
