Guys that have pretty narrow standards of how they want their sexual partners to look, both male and female. Because they have a bigger selection of potential mates
I.e. from the Kevin McHale thread, the bi guy might say he prefers only "exotic women".

"Bisexual" men -- who are, in reality, merely closeted gay men -- will cruise you while they're out shopping with their wives and kids. They're also generally stingy with the reciprocity in hookups, e.g. they want to suck and fuck but will rarely *do* the sucking or bottom.
"Bisexual" guys, if you encounter them at places like work and whatnot, will try to come up with any excuse they can think of to "hang out" -- but no, not ever EVER as a "gay" thing or, Christ forbid, a "date"! -- and then get conveniently drunk enough to claim plausible deniability about anything that transpires afterwards.

Bi dudes are generally more masculine and mainstream. They tend to like and play sports and refer to other males as "bro" and "dude." They are just like straight dudes, except, sometimes they notice other dudes, although most don't admit it to others.

Oh yeah, they both are currently in a serious long-term relationship with a women (who know they are bi). I don't think there is some truth to the fact that most bi guys will settle down with women.

IMHO, while some bi guys are really closeted gays (I was one, and got my huge share of pussy (although I was also married to a woman and after the divorce oddly dated strippers which led to my first encounter with a bi guy as a bi guy).
So, yes, I get the whole hate for bi guys by gay men since the great majority are just closeted.
But, I *do* believe there exists bisexual men: my definition: men who *admit* their sexual attraction to other me, and some actually act on it and are smart enough and confident enough to know it's OK. Most other men won't ever admit their attraction...even if just fleeting. And that's society's fault.

Men who are "bi" are mindfuckers. They are duplicitous. They will lead you on and then break your heart if you get too vulnerable with them OR reveal your feelings. They are careless with the emotions/feelings of gay men. They are all about themselves; many are sociopaths or borderline. They will feign shock and surprise when you tell them what they did to you. BE GUARDED around them. They are master manipulaters. They will reel you in and make you think you are truly special to them and then will mention some "hot girl" they want to fuck OR comment on some beautiful women in their line of sight. They hold just enough back to draw you in. They are a bit mysterious and can flirt like nobody's business. But they are cruel. They always find a way to remind you that they are not really 100% into you and are looking for pussy, too. OR are looking for "something" that you can't give them. It is always all about them. Always, ultimately. You can never trust a guy who identifies as "bi." I put it in quotes because the term is really up for a new definition. Most bi guys that I have known have ended up with women, not with other guys. Bi guys DO exist, no matter what the people posting want to convince you of. But they are usually the most messed up people you would never want to meet. Either that, or you will fall for one and just put your blinders on and only hear what you want to hear. And will still get your heart broken.

I'm confident that bisexuality truly exists, but it seems like bi women tend to exclusively date/marry men...and bi men tend to date/marry women and fuck around with men. The reason bi people are ridiculed is because they come across as self-loathing gays as opposed to just being indiscriminately sexual.
|by Anonymous||reply 56||11/04/2012|
There are enough bi guys out there who insist that their attraction to both men and women is real that I have to believe them. Insisting they don't know their own feelings is the same thing as straights insisting gay people really aren't gay.

It's not all about the sex. Most straight men are helpless in many ways and actually need a woman to help them function normally. Have you seen how single straight men live? When they marry what they're looking for is a mother and a sex partner. Like straight men, bi men may be more "dependent" on women than gay men are and that's why they settle down with women.

The difference between a married bi man and a straight married man is easy - pay close attention to the wife's position in his life. Is she integrated into all of it or is she effectively excluded from parts of his life. For example, he's out of town on business a lot, they live far away from his family, her friends are their friends, he's uncomfortable discussing her.
Between a gay guy and bisexual guy - I don't know. I am assuming we are talking about a man who comes across as gay, but ends up being bi.

If you're a bi male and would consider being in a long-term monogamous with a man man as well as woman, then just fine and dandy. But if you're only interested in long-term monogamous relationships with women and men are only for sex, then shove your sexuality ideas up your ass, jerk off and leave us alone. and none one of this "I can't find any men interested in a relationship" crap that someone else put forth in another posting.

I believe in bisexual men, but I have a question: do most bi men who date or marry women maintain an overpowering urge to be with the occasional man (and vice-versa)? Do they tend to date and marry partners who will give them "free passes"?

I tend to agree with R2, I actually knew 4 bisexual men, and when I say I knew them - I mean I known them to have had sex with both genders - having admitted to sex with men but currently with women. The thing is they label themselves straight.
Two I knew were the bottoms in the situation and stated they wanted to see what it was like, the did the same guy who was hot. These guys wouldn't have relationships with men, just viewed it as experimentation.
Another I knew to have been involved with several women I know and sexually active with them. He revealed interest in men as one hit on him in a bar. I made a joke when he was given a number, he said it's something he did in the past and enjoyed very much. But he's in a monogamous relationship and needed to cut it out. He did get married and I have lost touch and don't know how that worked out.
The last was a married coworker who admitted to have been unsure of his sexuality when he was younger and tried it with men and didn't think it was the right fit for him and went with women.
Then there was another coworker of mine who flamed like the day is long and he said he was bisexual. He was young and I totally saw him as bisexual on the way to gay. For some reason, people tell me this shit (I am a woman btw), and any man who identifies as bisexual in my view is likely gay.
The word I'm bisexual never came out of the mouth of the 4 "straight" guys who had sexual experiences and/or attraction to men. I think you are likely to hear one say "I'm flexible" before you hear bisexual.

When I was a teenager struggling with my sexual identity, I confided in my high school chemistry teacher, who was known to be gay but not exactly out (this was Oklahoma, after all). I told him I thought I was honestly attracted to both sexes but Iâd seen an episode of Friends where Lisa Kudrow sang a song that has a lyric that said men who claimed to be bisexual were just fooling themselves. So maybe I was just rationalizing to myself. Mr. H, who identified as gay, nevertheless was open minded about the issue. He told me about the Kinsey scale and after talking it over we decided I was probably between a 4 and 3 on the scale. But then he talked about his own test â find a movie with equally attractive female and male leads and see which one you prefer. He said that he realized he was gay when he was young and saw the Fantastic Voyage and preferred Stephen Boyd to Raquel Welch.
So I did Mr. Hâs movie test. I went to see the Xmen movie, which was out about that time. But I found I was more attracted to Famke Jansen than James Marsden. Both of them were pretty much perfect specimens of their respective sexes, at least theoretically. So that was kind of weird. But I found Hugh Jackman hotter than either, even though as Wolverine he had that weird facial hair and all that I didnât like. This confused me even more, so I applied the test to other movies and TV shows. I found that in Lara Croft I totally preferred Daniel Craig to Angeline Jolie, even though heâs got that weird Stewie Griffin head, whereas Angelina is much more fuckable to me than Mr. Jolie, Brad Pitt, who is supposedly symmetrically and physically perfect but who leaves me cold. My tastes donât really seem to follow any logic. For me, Kate Upton is way hotter than Justin Verlander, but Iâd take Brad Ausmus over either. Liz Taylor is far more fuckable in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof than Paul Newman, who does nothing for me. But Iâd take Sean Connery over Ursula Andress in a second.
So Iâve come to the conclusion that while Iâm (a lot) more homo than hetero, it all depends on the context for me. Maybe for bi men sexual attraction is situational, the way ethics and politics are for thinking men.

r94 - but, couldn't that be a natural function of aging - as sexual interest declines with age, bisexual attraction settles for one or the other.

I get your point, R95, but no--a lot of people insist that bisexuals are inherently straight or inherently gay, and consider that fixed. I guess they are afraid that any other idea could lead to a slippery slope toward [dun, dun, DUNNN] the fluid sexuality possibility theory.
Anyway this thread is about how to tell bisexual men from straight men, not whether they exist. My response to this Q? If a guy is a certain breed of flirty and feely toward humans in general (which I would never be able to completely describe), I often consider that he might be bisexual. There are somewhat-reliable stereotypes about how some gay men will act around each sex, but I won't get into those.

A bisexual meets a woman who he falls in love with but is free to occasionally sleep with a man he's attracted to. That scenario exists quite commonly today especially if that woman has the comforts of life, children and a husband who remains committed to their marriage and family. It's referred to as an "open" marriage. That man will also sexually and emotionally satisfy his wife and since sex in marriage is often close to non-existent the longer a couple is married, it all works out. Being emotionally attached to a woman is what makes the "bi" in bisexual. You can call it closeted if you want, but being gay is an emotional as well as physical attraction to members of the same sex.
