Have any of the other bisexual people here ever felt like they can never be attractive to the opposite sex, because they aren't masculine/feminine enough?
I'm a boy, and I've not exactly feminine, but I'm small and kind of quiet. I think that girls want a boy that they think can "defend" them. Yesterday, in school, there was this guy in my gym class- for some reason he decided to show off by flexing in front of some girl. He was going completely over the top, rubbing his arms, rolling his sleeves up and down over and over again, stretching in a weird exaggerated way. The weirdest thing was that he's not in great shape, he has muscle but I have bigger arms than him and stuff. Surprisingly (to me) some of the girls seemed to be pretty impressed by it. Maybe girls are impressed just by guys that show off more, regardless of whether or not they have much to show off? They're probably attracted to confidence, but I act confident, I'm not exactly shy.
I don't think that I could ever fill that role. I want either an equal relationship, or one where I'm the one being protected and adored. I hate being around girls that are overly feminine and needy.
I've asked some of my close friends about it, and most of the girls say that I'm a lot of fun to be around and they love being friends and they think that I'm physically attractive, but that I just don't have the personality of someone that they would want to be with.
So I just don't know, maybe its just my imagination, in the back of my head I keep thinking "how could a girl ever find me attractive? I'm attracted to other men.".
