Relate counsellor Holly Roberts says it’s important to consider how you approach people you’re potentially interested in, romantically or sexually.Holly tells ‘You might not feel ready to open up fully about your bicuriosity, so be patient with yourself knowing that it takes a safe environment to feel able to express and share intimate thoughts. ‘Be mindful of the impact of not saying anything – to yourself and to the other person. ‘If you’re still exploring and working things out, you might want to tell someone that perhaps you aren’t ready for commitment. ‘Are you with someone for some light-hearted fun and you have no desire to have a long-term relationship?

If so, it would be good to let the other person know. ‘As with any relationship, think about how your actions impact your date or partner and keep them in the picture about what your intentions are before any misunderstandings on either part occur.’Last year, more Brits identified as lesbian, gay or bisexual than ever before according to a survey for the Office for National Statistics, highlighting our queer community is growing.

Alongside heterosexuality and those definitive queer categories, many people ticked ‘don’t know’ or ‘other’.Not knowing isn’t a bad thing – and exploration is to be celebrated, as long as you’re doing it with respect and care for everyone involved.
