Hi everyone! I'm new, my name's Kat. I've known I was bisexual for a long time but only experience full, long term relationships with men. I've had a lot of sexual encounters with women but unfortunately it's always been after a night of drinking or because a girl wanted to experiment, etc. In the past few months however I met a girl through an online dating site and now we're getting to a point where I think we both are ready to take it to the next level and admit that we're actually dating. The weird thing is, despite how open I've always been with friends about my bisexuality, I realize that this is the first time I'll actually be dating a girl. It's very strange in my head for a lot of reasons. Mainly I come from a VERY close knit community that raises their girls primarily to think the key to a happy life is marrying a man young, having children & living the country life. This also means that my parents are not particularly prepared for the reality of me bring a woman home to announce as my girlfriend. She's amazing and I'm enjoying this courtship and blossoming of what I think can be a great relationship. I'm just trying to find some love & support for others who have been in this position.
