You pointed out worries in regards to the awkwardness of really resting utilizing the man, and worries about being truly a ‘dud’. Forget about this. In my opinion, and also this is irrespective of sex, things have a tendency to work by themselves down just fine whenever both individuals are excited and involved with it. Passion alone can be well well worth a lot more than a perfect method. Put in a communication that is little it, and you also’re golden. Therefore just be sure for it, okay? posted by amelioration at 10:50 AM on May 30, 2009 that you wait ’til you’re all excited
Seconding, thirding and n-thing: be upfront with this, which might perhaps perhaps maybe not (or might, based on him) be a deal that is big. Bonus: he is the very first guy that tickled your interest. Huge ego boost! Drawback: talking as an etero guy, now he’s got 200% of this competition you, which could lead to a bit that is little of on their part about your relationship.
A lot of men have actually dreams about girl-girl-boy threesomes. Simply an idea to help keep within the relative straight straight straight back associated with the mind. See above paragraph on competition for drawbacks and just why he is not very likely planning to ask to ‘bring a pal’. YMMV.

I have been what your location is aswell. We are nevertheless together. Nthing keep in touch with him about any of it before such a thing takes place, plus it may also be useful to acknowledge that perhaps it’ll you need to be embarrassing (or embarrassing the very first time/first few) and therefore does not must be a negative experience, particularly if you can communicate with one another about any of it.
It type of noises, as other commenters have actually described, that the relevant concern of identity can be going swimming – you realize, “Am I ‘bi’ now, or exactly just what?” For me personally, really, it absolutely was a rather hard concern, despite the fact that at that time, We felt want it should never seem like such an issue. In retrospect, Wef only I’d accepted it was difficult in my situation. Dating a guy tossed off lots of a few ideas I’d about myself looked after cut me off from a feeling of being element of a queer community, and I also think this will be a typical feeling, regardless of how highly one thinks (if certainly one does) that sex does not figure out identity.
Fundamentally, we made my comfort with it. It aided to own more conversations them was in a lesbian support group, and at one point all of them were dating guys about it with my friends, and learn, for example, that one of! It don’t change anything basic in them, in addition they did not need to use any terms they did not desire to. They are able to feel nonetheless they desired about whomever they desired. This did not allow it to be any less awkward to re-think whom these people were, though. But whether or otherwise not you stick with this person, we bet this is an appealing minute that you know, one which offers you some insights you want to live into yourself and your surroundings and how. published by thesmallmachine at 12:11 PM may 30, 2009
If it will help, you are not initial individual to see this uncommon situation. It is best simply to be as upfront and truthful along with your partner.

snugglebunny: “And what is somebody who identifies as a lesbian doing dating some guy anyhow? I do believe you are establishing your self and him up for the complete large amount of difficulty.”
Um snugglebunny, will you be serious? I did not understand that as soon as you checked the “gay” package you had beenn’t permitted to date anyone associated with the contrary intercourse. The OP don’t sign some kind saying “I’m a lesbian and may never ever touch some guy once more.” Sheesh! The plain truth is that it’s *not* that easy although we tend to like to label sexuality (and gender) in nice, neat, check-able boxes.
OP, it is understandably tossing you via a cycle, partly given that it’s messing with your personal self-identity. Which is normal. And you also’re afraid since you have not been with a man in some time. Which is additionally normal. But do not *ever* let anybody inform you you “should never” be doing one thing simply you should be because it doesn’t fit with their idea of how. published by radioamy at 12:21 PM may 30, 2009 [4 favorites]
I will be a right guy and and, not so long ago, I happened to be dating a woman whom defined as a lesbian. perhaps perhaps not bi, a lesbian. it had been a relationship that is good. we lasted for 5 years and then we’re nevertheless extremely friends that are close.
and she arrived on the scene of it in what katherineg called her “lesbian street cred” intact. in my opinion (that is, admittedly, restricted), that kind of reasoning about sex and sex isn’t a great deal just how things are done any longer. It’s interesting, for example, that this presssing problem did not allow it to be to your concern at all. and i love what thesmalmachine and radioamy have actually to state, and so I’ll leave it at that.
so when you stated you did not wish to be a ‘dud,’ i did not think you had performance that is sexual brain; I was thinking you designed you did not require a relationship to go south with this man therefore right after the past one. published by spindle at 12:35 PM may 30, 2009 [1 favorite]
In reality he probably will not care anyway. Considering exactly exactly just how much lesbian porn guys view, he could really very well be more into you because of it. published by Ookseer at 12:51 PM may 30, 2009 [1 favorite]
Telling him “I’m a really lesbian” (your terms) will be equal to telling him, “I’m maybe maybe not drawn to you.” If you are drawn to him and would like to date him, you aren’t a lesbian. You are bisexual. Just how can you simply tell him this? Think about: “I’m bisexual.”
Just how do he is told by you you’ve just dated girls in past times? Think about: “I’ve just dated girls within the past.” Or “I’m bisexual, but we have a tendency to prefer girls/women.” You don’t have to justify this choice. Either he will are having issues he won’t with it or. In any event, you are going to both be better off continue with openness and sincerity. published by Jaltcoh at 12:54 PM may 30, 2009
