Women's concerns about infidelity weren't as affected by their partner's gender.
Of women dating women, 25 percent said the sex would bother them more than the emotional infidelity, the same answer given by 17 percent of women dating men.
Do you think things like “ugh I wonder if guys are this clingy” or “dang I wonder if girls are this close-minded.” Well, unless you change overnight, you’ll never REALLY know. Although some may be slightly biased and can’t really be said for EVERY SINGLE PERSON of that sex, it’s still some pretty interesting shizzz.
What Works for One, Doesn’t Work For All Bi Individuals Just think, some politicians are straight, but they seem to be acceptable to the open marriage rule.
It only means that you and your partner need to decide what will or won’t work out for the two of you.
Forty-eight of the participants were bisexual women dating men, 36 were bisexual women dating women, 27 were bisexual men dating women and 23 were bisexual men dating men.
The answers showed that the men dating women were far more likely than other groups to be most stressed by sexual infidelity.
One limitation of the study is that it didn't take into account the gender of the person the partner was cheating with, Scherer said.
That person's gender could complicate matters — for example, a man whose female partner cheated with another woman wouldn't have to worry about a surprise pregnancy, so perhaps emotional jealousy would become more important.Forcing people to make a choice about which bothers them more can illuminate intriguing gender differences, though, he said.The bisexual participants' answers support the idea that a threat to reproduction helped lead to the evolution of jealousy, Scherer said.A man dating a man doesn't have to worry about accidentally raising another man's baby if his partner gets pregnant.But if that same man is dating a woman, he can't be entirely sure that any baby she has is his, which could have led to more anxiety about sexual fidelity.Granted, if you are not into it, it can be a hard sell—sort of like Nato (Japan fermented beans)…I get it.
