This is the story of how I discovered Shybi.
Two years ago, I became attracted to a local mother whose son attends the same elementary school as my son. Her name starts with the letter "D", so let's call her "D". For years prior to that, I'd see D at various school and community functions where we would chitchat about typical things mothers talked about, such as homework, extracurricular activities, etc. -- it was unremarkable. I've always noticed her understated beauty where her sweet face was never masked by excessive makeup, and her body was naturally cared for by her healthy lifestyle. However, I am sapiosexual (attracted to intelligence) and somewhat demisexual, so looks alone is not enough to attract me; I needed more. Then one day at a kid's birthday party, I found out D is a biology professor at the local college and has recently been promoted to the position of Dean. That immediately peaked my interest in her and got me conversing extensively with her. I found that D is an exceptionally intelligent woman with passions and values that match mine. Each conversation with her leaves me swooning and lusting for her. I soon found myself obsessed with her.
I spent each day looking for bi clues and hoping she was secretly attracted to women as I am. I downloaded the HER app hoping to find her there. She wasn't. I scoured the internet searching her name with lgbt related terminologies, to no avail. Then I came to Shybi, also hoping to find her here. She wasn't. I eventually gave up and concluded she is straight.
However, in my dashed hopes for a special relationship with D, I remained here at Shybi where I am learning more and more about myself, and it was here where I discovered my identity as a bisexual woman. From then on I've made further progress: I admitted my attraction to D to my husband, who was surprised but intrigued to find that she was my type. I also had serious talks with him about my expectations and my strict limitations if I were to develop feelings for other women in the future. As an additional benefit, our (already strong) relationship became stronger.
Every time I see D, I want thank her for taking me to a place where I can further my journey as a bisexual woman, however I believe I will forever keep my gratitude a secret.
Dear beautiful D, in the off-chance you come to this site and read this blog entry, thank you!
