Lynette & Corey, an engaged couple of four years, open up about their relationships and discuss the real struggles, and insecurities surrounding sexuality.
Corey, who is straight, finds it tough to imagine he is enough for Lynette, who is bisexual and has dated both men and women.
Their relationship has been both on and off, and during the off periods he was worried that she was using that time to date women and get with her ex-girlfriends.
What is interesting though, is he is not threatened by her dating other men, but if she still wants to see other women.
Even though Lynette says it ‘really isn’t an issue’, Corey still doesn’t understand.
He wants to know if women were still a factor, because “it’s still present one way or the other.” In order to truly trust her, he wanted her to come clean about everything.
Lynette responded by saying sexuality can be fluid, and it’s not always black-and-white.
It’s a part of her life, and something she never wants to get in the way of her relationship with Corey.
She tells him
In my experience and I feel like several other people’s experiences, sexuality can be very fluid. There have been several instances where I’ve been attracted to this person. It’s caused me not only a lot of really fucked up hurt and stuff like that, because it’s so confusing.
I knew immediately when I met you that I choose this person. I didn’t know, a long time ago I thought I might end up with a woman. I was open to that a long time ago. But now after meeting you, I knew that wasn’t an issue anymore.
It wasn’t a case of, “Oh, that’s dead now”, but it’s “I choose you” and I wouldn’t do anything to fuck that up.”
