    I saw some people here in EC who declared gay or lesbian and married with opposite sex person? I don't get this, this not make sense to me. For example a guy who is gay can be still married with a woman even if this one coming out? :confused:

    Sorry if I someone fell offended, but this is not my intention, just a question.
    Thanks!:icon_redf

    Hi Rapha Lover,

    I don't take offense to a well-intentioned question on EC.

    While I have identified as bisexual (somewhere between 4 and 5 on the Kinsey scale) for the past 5 years based on what I've done, I now identify as gay based on how I feel at this point in my life. I have a strong preference for guys, and I'm looking for a gay relationship after I divorce. As a label, gay feels closer to the truth and is a better reflection of how I feel.

    See this thread where I went from being bisexual to gay http://emptyclosets.com/forum/lgbt-later-life/181163-married-guys-who-identify-gay.html
