Brand new to this, so here goes. I live in the deep south so it has been ingrained into my head that if you're not heterosexual, you're a weird p.o.s. I had my first experience with another male when I was 18 and have never been able to get it out of my mind. I've felt an attraction most of my life to men but have always pushed it back and told myself it was a weird phase and to just ignore it. I've been burying it. Deep down in my subconscious. I mean, I have a strong attraction to women as well. I also feel like I can only be romantically involved with women. I dont know for certain because I've only just now helped myself realize that it's okay to be bi. It's freeing, but also confusing. I have only come out to my amazing girlfriend who is extremely accepting. She is the love of my life. I just have urges periodically for intimacy with a male and have never gotten to explore. Lol, it took me forever to spit it out and it worried my girlfriend. Like 25 minutes just to say the words, "I'm bisexual". Anyone else feel the delima of being in a great relationship with the opposite sex and having strong urges for same sex encounters/romance?

@boduke185 yeah, i know the pain of not having someone around to talk to. i live in my wife's small texas hometown now. (I'm from NYC.) I do keep up with a friend also in recovery in NYC who's gay, and he's a good coach on how to be accepting of myself on the emotional and spiritual levels. It helps keep the keel even during the temptation storm.

Hey Boduke,
Absolutely god loves us as we are. We are not just bisexuals. We are children of God, brothers of Christ, lovers of all others, but once married (validly) our vow was to two others God and spouse. Therefore it’s more Important imo to be faithful son and brother.
That being said even if and for me did fail there he was with love, mercy and redemption. That was probably 15 years ago.
So, I just look on it as my cross for now which in time becomes my crown.
