    I think that to be true to ones self the Bi-sexual in question would have to be very up front about who they are and what they enjoy. If the other person feels they can live with this then it is worth giving it a shot. Honesty is always the best course of action in any relationship.

    I don't think anything is really hard.  Its all about how much you want it!  Doesn't matter your sexuality, isn't it usually the indivdual that matters.........ciao

    My initial reaction was to say "No harder or easier than for a bisexual to be in a gay relationship."

    But actually, given potential societal pressures, it's probably a little bit easier for a bisexual to be in a straight relationship. Depending on where you live it might be a lot easier to be in a straight relationship.

    As for whether it's hard for a bisexual to be in a monogamous relationship with a person of one sex, well, no. Bisexual means they CAN be attracted to either a male or a female, not that they want both at the same time.

    I think it depends on the age.  When you are a Bi person partner may feel the "need" to have relations ships with both genders.   In which case the Bi or straight person can get hurt.  If you are a bit older and have been there and done that I think a Bi person appreciates the individual and can have a long and loving relationship with either gender.  A good match is hard to find period. ** I feel that it is easier for a man to be with a Bi woman (he may like that) than a gay woman to be with a Bi woman she may feel threatened?

    I think it's harder for bisexual men to be in straight relationships because for some reason it's harder to find girls who are okay with the idea of it. Society puts all kinds of bad associations with bisexuality in general, but a lot of women find it creepy or weird to be dating a bisexual man unless they themselves are bisexual or accepting of the LGBT community. This also has a lot to due with gender roles that society has ingrained in us. I think a lot of women feel like if a man likes other men, it makes them less 'manly' and find that very hard to deal with.

    I personally am bisexual and in a straight relationship, and don't find it at all difficult. I was honest from the start about my sexuality and he's completely okay with it. However, I've never had a relationship with a girl, and that doesn't make me any less  bisexual than someone who has. Just because I haven't had experience with a girl, doesn't mean it's difficult for me to have a straight relationship. It's not something I want to pursue currently because I'm happy with what I have.

    I think it all has to do with honesty at the start and the willingness of the partner to accept it and not judge the other person on one aspect of their being. It's hard for people to understand that bisexual does not mean poly-amorous or promiscuity at all.

    It's actually not that hard at all, at least not for me. The hardest part was telling my boyfriend once I had finally managed to be honest with myself. I expected him to be a little put off, but I knew he'd stay with me because we had been together long enough at that point for me to know that he loved me---no matter what.

    Turns out he wasn't put off at all. He was happy. Very, very, very, very happy. I suppose for that reason alone it's a lot easier for bisexual girls to be in a straight relationship than it is for bisexual guys.
