Could You Be Bisexual? 5 Signs That You're Not As Straight As You Think You Are

Are you sure you're 100% straight?

Though some people may say otherwise, bisexuals are very much real. But it's one of the more confusing sexual orientations, especially when society is constantly pressuring you to just "pick a side". But here are some signs of bisexuality in women you should look out for, just in case you suspect that you're not 100% hetero.

5 Signs Of Bisexuality In Women
1. You're sexually attracted to both men AND women.

Perhaps you only dated men in the past. Perhaps you exclusively dated women. Your dating history doesn't matter — if you're attracted to both, you're probably bisexual. If you're dating a man, but you're attracted to women, you might be bi. If you're dating a woman, but you're also attracted to men, you might be bi.

And when we talk about attraction, we're talking sexual attraction, not those semi-envious girlcrushes we sometimes get on women who make us feel slightly envious of their awesomeness but also make us wish we were their friends. Picture yourself doing the deed with these women. If that turns you on, you might be bi.

2. You've hooked up with both men AND women, and you enjoyed it both ways.

Don't be mistaken — if you hooked up with a girl just for lolz, if it was just a drunken thing, or if you were doing it to get attention from some dudes, then that doesn't count.

It really isn't that complicated. If both genders turn you on, then you're probably bi.

3. You fantasize about getting freaky with men AND women.

What do you think about when you touch yourself? Do you picture yourself exclusively with men? Or do you also picture yourself with women? If the thought of you with men and women makes you all tingly and excited, then you're probably bi.

4. You see yourself ending up with someone of either sex.

Bisexuality isn't just about having a sexual experience just for kicks. One common misconception about bisexuals is that they're more promiscuous than people who identify as simply heterosexual or homosexual, but that isn't the case.

Bisexuals can have meaningful relationships with both men and women. If you can picture yourself settling down with a man or woman, you could be bi.

5. Calling yourself bisexual just feels right.

The dictionary definition of a bisexual is simple: being sexually attracted to both men and women. That by itself might have struck a chord with you, and maybe the more you read about bisexuality, the more it makes sense.

You might prefer one gender over the other, and still be bi. At the end of the day, it's your call if that's the label you want to call yourself. But don't feel pressured by these labels — gender and sexuality isn't binary, and your sexual identity is a lot more fluid than you might think. 

At the end of the day, you should trust your gut. Finding your identity is a lot like finding someone to love. Sometimes, when you know, you know.
