I wouldn't say it feels any more 'hectic' it's just nice I guess. When I was young I assumed I was straight, as I'm sure most people do. At around 14 or so I started finding myself attracted to girls, and with many late-nights sneaking onto the computer for some experimenting with lesbian porn google, I came to the conclusion that I was a lesbian. It felt weird obviously as I was still young and naiive, however I came to accept it.
That was until I had my first experience with a guy; and I realized; 'Maybe i'm not gay after all'

I was 17 before I actually realized I was bi, and boy did it simplify things.

How do you perceive the body odour of the gender you're attracted/not attracted to?
I'm not sure I fully understand what youre asking but I'll answer anyway;

I'm not sure whether it's because I'm attracted to both genders, but I find smell of another person to be wonderful usually, be it a male or female person. Obviously though, if you don't shower for a week you're not going to smell good regardless of your gender.

I find guys generally smell 'muskier' or have a stronger smell, and girls usually have a more subtle scent. Either way the only time I've really ever noticed and appreciated the smell of another person is either sleeping together, or during moments of passion.

Mayhap it's simply part of infatuation.

In addition to what I mentioned earlier about monogamy; I've only ever felt like i've fully loved someone once, being my current partner.
Since I've been with her, I've found myself less emotionally attracted to others, of either gender. My physical attraction to either gender hasn't changed.

I guess that's probably some sort of natural, monogamous instinct.

    An asexual and can just as well be romantic, and many are, seeking the love and companionship of whatever gender they connect with, but having little or no interest in the physical (ie. sexual) aspect of the matter. Conversely, a bisexual could be aromantic, let's say. One could even be a heteroromantic homosexual, in theory; and so on.

    I was thinking that how you view body odour could reflect ones sexual preferences. Because sex is a sensual experience and smell definitely plays a part, even if its a small one. I didn't want to spell it out cuz that might skew some of your answers but I suck at making things clear anyways :P

      Like when I smell a certain someone, I get a mental thumbs up. I can't describe it in words - kind of like magnetism. It doesn't "objectively" smell good, as I'd rather be smelling chocolates or strawberries, but there is an attraction and I feel my perception is influenced by my orientation.
      I think I understand now...
      But, I don't know how to answer this question.

      Haha it took me forever to come up with what I did above. Or maybe body odour is sensually significant for me :P But I understand this isn't a kink club.

      I've never noticed a girl having a smell, and guys only smell when they're haven't showered or are really sweaty which is gross, so... yeah. Scent doesn't play a role in it for me afaik.

        GUYS!
        I did it!
        I came out to my brother! And told him about my boyfriend! And the fact he was 19.
        He told me to be careful, and then went to tell me about his little gay experiences...
        And now he's engaged to the woman he's been dating for years...
        It's weird.

        Congratulations! I'm sure most of us here know how hard that can be, especially to a peer rather than an adult. Glad he seemed understanding, he clearly cares for you as a brother which is great.

        I always wished I had an older brother, I think it would have been pretty cool.

          Yes. Women smell great to me, whereas guys don't seem to give off any kind of scent unless they are sweaty. But yeah, all women smell good to me- my girlfriend especially.

          Congrats! I would tell you the same thing, you can't trust older men. My girlfriend's ex being one year older scared the crap out of me and is still unsettling. But I guess my ego was at stake :P

          What's it like dating someone older? or younger? I can't imagine myself doing either.

            Yeah, he's kinda stupid sometimes, but I love the poor lug.
            Both he and his girlfriend understand, and they both have a metric ton of bi/gay friends.

            Well, it's pretty much the same as dating someone whose the same age. Especially with him because I believe I'm his first...
            But I love him so much, but, the distance kills me...

            Yay! *claps* I'm glad for you :D

            That's cool you were able to work up courage to tell him. Now you guys must be a little closer.

              Ehh, as close as we'll ever get.
              I still want to whack his head for being stupid sometimes though.

              I think you underestimate your closeness, tbh. The fact that he felt comfortable enough with you to tell you specifics about any 'gay' experience he's had, or any sexual experience at all, says a lot. My sister knows I'm gay and I wouldn't feel comfortable even approaching a sexual topic with her, nor would she with me. I envy that a bit.

              I always wanted a brother too, though.

              Also re: smells... the guy I was dating wore Britney Spears perfume and I really liked him, and my roommate that I'm slowly falling in love with wears men's cologne. So there's nothing to that for me.

                I believe the question pertains only to natural body odour(s), not manufactured fragrances to which we are not genetically predisposed to react.

                  Somehow, I feel like the rest of my family knows somehow, because, while I was working in the kitchen making dinner with my mom and sister, they told me that they're "proud of me for saying that" and my mom said "I'm proud of you for just being you" or something to the sort, and my dad wanted to talk to me earlier...

                  If you just told a close family member, and then the rest of your family suddenly knows, I'd say it's pretty obvious what happened.

                    Well, at least he made things easier for you, unless you wanted to tell your close relatives personally. Lol

                    I mean, now you know that they're fairly accepting of it, so I guess it wasn't too bad. He should have never said anything in the first place, though. :P

                      Eh. I know I'll have to go face-to-face on them with the topic later.
                      Just hearing it from the brother a good source does not make.

                      It's sort of bad etiquette to just.. tell the whole family something personal like that, but he probably knew they'd accept it.

                      I'm glad it's going well

                        Yeah...
                        I think the hard part would be telling them my boyfriend is 19...

                        Haha, but at least you're no worse than anyone else in your situation :P I think if they were okay with it so far it's only reason to be confident about the future ahead.

                        And yet it's really common. At least from what I've heard from people. If you tell one family member and they think another family member will be okay then they often tell them without asking you first. You know, because "OMG, Bobby told me he was gay. Me! I have to tell someone!"
