    Because I don't consider myself 100% gay, nor do I think anyone can claim 100% sexuality either way. I see it as a fluid thing which can change depending on where one finds themselves in their life and who with.

    I'm in a long term gay relationship, and I love my boyfriend very much, but I'd consider myself probably 70/30 gay to straight. Even if I've only been with a woman fleetingly once.

    I suppose I've never really had to give it that much thought, but I don't want a 70/30%, or a 100% stat, to be misleading.

    I've always believed the most beautiful things can be found in the most unexpected places. I'm not sure I want to put myself in one place or the other, just rather ask why the need for labels, percentages and names?

    Then do 70/30. That's what I did when I started here.

    About the whole "misleading" thing, do keep in mind that there are people on here that have/claim "100% Straight" on their profile, yet openly pursue the same gender. I wouldn't worry too much about that...

    Do what you believe best represents yourself. Regardless of if it's putting 70/30, 100%, unsure, or just not bothering it the whole percentage/label thing at all. Especially if you're questioning the need for it.

    I just put 'no response' - I don't think sexuality is so easily defined.

    That question is just like, totally gay. 100%.

    Maybe they should change it to ratios? As long as your funny bone is no less than 50% humour to 50% drama, all is well. Just have to watch what tickles your bone....

    I always tell people that I become 1% more gay for every year that I am a member and that they should ignore the listed percentage.

    Forget it - once he drops to 90%, I'll traumatize him back to 100%. :biggrin1:

    I can see i may need to revise my percentage then, having had 36 appointments with different General Practitioners for Anal Examinations......may be an indicator of my sexual preferences.........very confusing as they were all female......weirder and weirder
