'My friend turned out to be a bisexual'

May 31, 2013, 01:27 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, One of my friends suddenly confessed to me that she is a bisexual.

She says that she loves me and wants to take our friendship to the next level. It has come to me as a huge shock. To make things worse, she is married and has a kid. Can someone decide to turn bisexual overnight? I don’t know what to do.

Dear Sonora,
Bisexual people can be found in all walks of society and everywhere in the world. There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about them. Your friend’s case is certainly unique. Overnight she decided to turn bisexual. She may have been a closet bisexual and finally decided to come out in the open. Your pal certainly needs help. She needs immediate counselling to see things in perspective. Chances are that her hubby is unaware, so remember she also needs to be honest with him. More than being scared of her, you need to first make it clear to her that you no such intentions and then help her. 

Diana will solve it!
