I’m an ally for the community (happy Pride month! ) but as a straight person writing a bisexual main character, I want to know something about being bisexual and if what I have in mind is offensive to the community at all or if it depends on the context, situation, and person.
I understand that you can be in both a homosexual and heterosexual relationships, and neither means you being one or the other (like if you’re in a heterosexual relationship, it doesn’t mean you’re straight nor does it define who you are, same as the opposite). Right? But I’m stumped on if there is a specific gender or person that you have in mind for settling down with or seeing a future with?
I’ve heard (and understand) that just because you marry the opposite gender, doesn’t make you less of a bisexual person. You loved that person enough to share a life with them. You still are attracted to the same gender, you’re just not in the position to date anyone else. Right? So my question is if my male MC is bisexual but mostly saw himself in a heterosexual relationship, is that offensive at all?
Nicolas, my MC, starts off in a heterosexual relationship. She dies and after her death, he meets someone (a guy) and eventually gains feelings for him. And while they will share a relationship in the story, there is a part I’m trying to work out in my head where he might see himself in a heterosexual relationship more…? I’m trying to figure out how to end this romantic subplot in my head prior to the entire series ending, and while I want him to end up with his future boyfriend, I don’t know if that’s the route I want to take.
There’s also another ending I had in mind where he doesn’t get with anyone in the end and his future boyfriend would end up doing something else or going somewhere.
Anyway, what do y’all think?
