DILEMMA | Could my bisexual partner cheat on me?

Doctor Dannii Cohen answers reader’s questions. This week Dannii answers a question on whether a bisexual partner is twice as likely to cheat on you and leave?

Not because they are bisexual, no. This is a common misconception. In fact, when we asked our bisexual readers what myths really bugged them – this was one of the ones that kept cropping up.

Being bisexual does not mean twice as likely to cheat. A bisexual person falls in love the same way as anyone does. The only thing that is “different” is that they can fall in love with both genders.

If you feel your partner may be cheating on you, do not raid their computer, mobile or whatever.


A lot or relationships suffered not because of cheating but because the partner who is being spied upon feels hurt by the other’s secret snooping. Oddly the best thing to do is ask.

Dr Dannii says that communication is the key. If you think your partner is cheating, whether they are gay or bisexual, you should start with asking them outright.

Communication is the most important thing in a relationship.

This does not mean that the partner will automatically blurt out the truth the first time around: but knowing the conversation is open they will feel more ready to talk and admit to problems.
