The second option seems daunting, because, again, if you have ever filled out an online dating profile, you know it is a tedious, aggravating procedure. My profile now states that I am bi and looking for guys and girls who like bi girls. As much as I like to avoid stereotypes, I couldn't help but wonder how many gay women would actively search out bi women on a dating site.Even if a gay girl is open to dating a bi girl, even if she doesn't harbor preconceived conceptions about bisexual women, my guess is that to make things easier and more streamlined, she is going to search for gay women.
To further support this assumption, out of the 24 emails I received within the first 12 hours after creating my profile, I was not contacted by one single female.
Four out of the 24 men who emailed me were part of a couple, and they were on a hunt for a third.
" You and I both know that this is not entirely true, considering how many questions you have to answer to complete your profile (physical characteristics as well as "likes" and "dislikes") and how much of a pain it is to allocate and upload attractive photos of yourself. Immediately it asks if you are a woman or a man, which is fine for me but isn't necessarily an easy question for others who don't identify with one or either gender. Why are you making me decide something that I can't answer so definitively?
I checked the "woman" box and then proceeded to the next question, which asks if you are seeking a woman or a man. I am seeking love, and fun, but ultimately love, and I just don't know if that will be found in a man or a woman.
Whether you are looking for a friend, companion or a steady relationship, is your ideal place.
