Our expert says:
If you happen to be bisexual in orientation and tastes, that's not something in itself to feel guilty about. Fine. But to choose to have a relationship with someone without disclosing something so potentially relevant to them and to the future happiness of the relationship, may be something that ought to concern you. So its very reasonable that you both feel that you ought to be frank with a potential future partner ( indeed, one of either sex ) and that you recognize that this might cause problems. Yes, you might be rejected. As might occur if you revealed that you are a secret smoker, or that you hate cats.
Anyone forming a potentially lasting relationship will have concerns about their partner. A routine heterosexual partner might cheat on you with people of the opposite sex, but many are nice people who won't do that because of the way they view their responsibilities within a relaionship, and not because of their sexual orientation. That a bisexual partner might stray with partners of either sex probably doesn't necessarily increase the risk.
You can't really make your potential partner more openminded than they already are, about general and theoretical issues. They may become more open to how they think about you, once they get to know you and find you to be trustworthy, but this takes time.
Even within a heterosexual relaionship, either partner might have unusual or particular sexual tastes, and their partner either finds that acceptable, pleasant, or unpleasant, or unacceptable.
I guess what I'm saying is that you seem to be assuming the issues you raise ( very reasonable ones ) are very specific to bisexuality, rather than as being part of the usual problems of human relationships. The issue is surely whether you choose to be monogamous and honest with your partner. ANY affair, with man, woman or beast, would be painful to your partner.
