Hey everyone. Welcome back to Eliel Cruz Speaks. I’m going to give you five tips on dating bisexual people. I’ve heard it all.
The first one’s pretty simple. It’s actually really basic and necessary for any relationships. You need to get your shit together. You may be like, “Well, duh.”
A lot of people get into relationships without actually examining themselves and figure out what they need, figure yourself out. Know what you want and be independent. Come in with a clean slate, ready to fall in love with the person you’re going to date. Don’t be looking for someone else to complete yourself. Be complete in yourself and have that person add more to you.
Number two, we all know that relationships, in time, there’s a lot of jealousy that goes on, but there’s a special kind of jealousy when you’re dating someone bisexual. ‘Cause then I get people, you know, being jealous of not just men, but of women and everyone in between. Get out the parameters for your relationship. Make sure you guys are okay and on the same page, monogamy, polyamory, etc. The partner is with you. They’re with you for a reason and they’re not going to leave you for other sexes, because there’s no one else like you.
Number three, my identity is important. When you start dating me, you’ll realize how often I’ll get clocked for being gay or straight, depending on if I have a boyfriend or girlfriend at that time. It’s important for me, as someone who’s finally gotten to know myself and be really proud of who I am, for me to be ID’d correctly. I kind of see it like I’m Puerto Rican. If someone says I’m Dominican, well, that’s not bad. It’s really close. We’re really close in geography, similar in cultures. My identity is important.
Number four, do not ask me which is better. Focus on your relationship. Focus on us. Focus on the fact that we’re together and not with other people. It gets really complicated because one, you don’t understand bisexuality, that one gender is better than the other. More than likely, if I’m in love, it’s going to be you that’s the best, so let’s keep it that way.
Last point is, let’s just work on us. I chose you, and there’s a reason I chose you. Let’s not have sexuality or anything else get in the way of our relationships. I’m sure there’ll be other bumps in the road that we’ll have to get through.
My sexuality is cool. I don’t mind giving you some input or teaching you a little bit about it if you ask questions, but that shouldn’t define a relationship.
