Out of my three long-term relationship, only one has been with a woman.I think it's taken me this long to date a woman because I don't meet as many gay or bisexual women in my day to day life.Depending on the circles you run in, it's rarer than you might think.As Slate explains: Polls have revealed that while most people believe LGBTQ people make up a full 23 percent of the population, but the number is actually closer to a scant 3.8 percent.
It doesn't mean your bisexuality was "just a phase" or you only made out with that girl for attention or whatever nonsense people are chortling at you when you get into a straight relationship.

Which made me go: Really? I'm not arguing with the numbers, I'm just surprised the numbers are so... I assumed that, just based on how many people identify as straight, you would find the majority of bisexuals in straight relationships, but with a whopping 84 percent of them — it just seems too big of a percentage to be just that.
