Despite the fact that I wouldn’t want to be a member of any club that would have my member (err...), I recently joined OkCupid. Along with most LiveJournal users, it seems.
I’m amused that most of the matches it picks for me are bisexual and polyamorous. I have absolutely no problem with either of these lifestyles; I’ve dated bisexual women before, and really enjoyed it — the experience of walking along, and both of us “checking out the scenery” is a very fun one.
Polyamory makes lots of sense to me, but it twigs my massive insecurities: I can’t make even one woman happy (thus ruling out multiple partners for me), and if I can’t make her happy, I’m obviously an inferior specimen, so why should she bother with me (thus ruling out my participation as one of her multiple partners). (Translation: I don’t think I’m worth the effort, why would anyone else?)
I did find this thought worth a giggle, though:
I’ve often heard the ha ha, only serious comment that being bisexual doubles your chances of getting a date. The converse must apply, however: if you’re attracted to someone who’s bisexual, your chances are halved.
