Bi and bi - the funcrunch files


Sep. 12th, 2003 05:37 pm Bi and bi

I just read in this week's Savage Love column that according to Details magazine, everyone under 25 is bi. This new "trend" is apparently a phenomenon of college campuses, where it is now hip for students of both genders to be casually bisexual and then resume a straight identity (if they so choose) upon graduation.

The "everyone" bit sounds like an exaggeration to me, obviously, but Savage insists it is true, and what do I know - all the people I hang out with are over 25, and the university I work for is strictly for graduate and professional students. All I know is that I hardly met any other bi people when I was in college back in '88-'92, even after I came out. Hmmm...

I ponder the possibilities:


  • Should I expand my usual 25-45 age range in my personals searches to include the 18-24ish types?


  • Would an 18-24ish coed want anything to do with a plump, professional, partnered 33 year old?


  • Would an undergrad gal be more likely to decide during a relationship that she is actually straight or monogamous, and hence leave me in the lurch?



Hmmm...

Hip Before It Was Trendy

Okay, I'm officially envious.

On the other hand, we have the satisfaction of having been bi before it was trendy.

As for your questions:

Should I expand my usual 25-45 age range in my personals searches to include the 18-24ish types?

Dunno. Maybe the 21-24ish types. I myself am now focused on late 20s/early 30s Jewish female types, but I wouldn't rule out, say, a fling with a 19-year-old who threw him/herself at me. (Nor, for that matter, would I rule out a fling with a hot 50-year-old.) YMMV.

Would an 18-24ish coed want anything to do with a plump, professional, partnered 33 year old?

Depends on the coed, I suppose.

Would an undergrad gal be more likely to decide during a relationship that she is actually straight or monogamous, and hence leave me in the lurch?

Only one way to find out, really....
