A young bisexual woman took to Reddit for opinions after she refused to change her wardrobe just because it made her roommate uncomfortable. It wasn’t a problem when everyone thought she was a lesbian. Here is the full story.
They’re Not Friends
OP is a 25-year-old woman who lives with a 27-year-old woman.
The two are not close and only share a place so they can afford the rent.
She Had a Secret
OP is bisexual, but her roommate has only known her to date women.
She Had a Steady
When the roommates connected through Facebook a couple years back, OP was in a relationship with a woman, and that lasted for about another year.
She Stayed Single a Long Time
For most of the time after the breakup, OP wasn’t really dating anyone.
He’s a Good Guy
OP’s roommate, meanwhile, has a boyfriend who’s in his 30s.
He’s at their place all the time, but he’s quiet and generally seems like a good guy.
They Geek Out Together
OP has no problem with her roommate having her boyfriend around all the time, and they all get along fine.
OP and the BF even share an interest in the Marvel universe.
They’re a Mismatch
One thing OP has noticed, though, is that her roommate is very emotional, while her boyfriend is pretty flat most of the time.
It Was a Quick Breakup
A while back, they got in a big fight, and the boyfriend broke up with OP’s roommate.
It didn’t stick though, and they were soon back to smiling and hanging out every night.
She Was Insecure
But there was some volatility, and OP thinks her roommate was probably insecure about it.
She Couldn’t Hide Her Happiness
All of those factors came to a head recently when OP went out on a date with a guy.
The night went really well, and she was gushing about the experience when she got home.
It Was a Big Shock
OP’s roommate was surprised to find out that she was interested in guys.
They Formed a Stronger Bond
But it turned out to be a good ice breaker, because OP’s roommate revealed that she is also bisexual.
The two women had a good chat and ended up with a new understanding of each other.
She Was Being Provocative
The good vibes took a turn south a few days later, though.
OP’s roommate came to her and asked her to stop wearing provocative pajamas and walking around in a bra or towel.
They Were Uncomfortable
The roommate said that OP was making her and her boyfriend uncomfortable.
She Flashes Them From Time to Time
That was pretty shocking to OP, who doesn’t wear anything more provocative than pajama shorts, though she does sometimes workout in a sports bra.
She also admits to sometimes walking from her room to the shower in a towel.
She Was Suspicious
It was pretty clear to OP that this out-of-the blue problem was her roommate’s response to finding out that she was bisexual.
She Was Jealous
It seemed to OP that her roommate was suddenly worried that she would start hitting on her boyfriend.
She Needed Some Time
OP didn’t have a knee-jerk reaction and told her roommate she needed some time to think about her request.
It’s Not Her Problem
But after thinking about it for a while, OP thinks her roommate is being ridiculous.
She Can Do What She Wants
OP has never flirted with the other girl’s boyfriend, and she’s not attracted to him.
Besides, it’s OP’s home, and she should be able to do whatever she wants.
Redditors overwhelmingly agree with OP and think that her roommate is way out of line.
They say she’s letting her insecurities get the best of her.
And several commenters point out how hypocritical the roommate is since she’s not worried about hurting her boyfriend by living with a woman she theoretically could have a relationship with.
