I have always been an advocate of online dating, for a variety of reasons. I think it's a great way to meet people you would never otherwise encounter, see places you may never have heard of and build confidence. Even if you go on one or two unsuccessful during the week, you still give off a vibe at the bar that says, "Yes, I am dating," as opposed to the I-haven't-been-on-a-date-in-three-months vibe that people annoyingly tend to pick up on, as if through an extra sense.
"Rm242 bi only dating," as easy as online dating has become it's evolved into the mainstream and is popular in New York City and across the countryit is still difficult to navigate as a bisexual woman.
Sure, there are dating sites specifically designed for bisexual women, but they do not have the reach or the users of other, more well-known sites, and frankly, they tend to alienate gay women and straight men. Because, like many other bi girls, I am attracted to gay women and straight men, I want that exposure. Also, I have had gay and bi friends alike find amazing partners, love and fun on Rm242 bi only dating sites. So let's discuss two popular sites, both of which you have probably heard of, and both of which tout millions of users, just waiting for you and a wound from Cupid's arrow.
When signing in to Match. Immediately it asks if you are a woman or a man, which is fine for me but isn't necessarily an easy question for others who don't identify with one or either gender. I checked the "woman" box and then proceeded to the next question, which asks if you are seeking a woman or a man.
So, before I have even started, I have hit a wall. Why are you making me decide something that I can't answer so definitively?
I am seeking love, and fun, but ultimately love, and I just don't know if that will be found in a man or a woman. It strikes me that there are two options: can 1 choose a gender that is appealing to me right at this moment, or 2 create two separate profiles.
