Thank you so much, this is really, really appreciated. Have you experienced similar? He also knows about all of this and I even showed him this thread! It's been hard being open about it, but I'd definitely say it feels less awful when spoken aloud. I am starting therapy again soon, but it's so hard in the interim. Great advice to think of it that way though! :)
I'm so sorry to hear that. I am hoping that you can work on it or grow towards it in future. It does help to feel less alone in this, so I appreciate your comments so much.
If you ever need to chat more I am more than happy to!
I understand about being in a state!! I do think intimacy is salvageable though. And it's probably your OCD trying to make you feel that you 'don't like' men. Which is a very generalised statement as it is.
I really found that talking through my thoughts with my partner and looking at OCD material together helped us both. What we're experiencing is so textbook, we're not alone! I found a couple of good articles about being bisexual and having OCD too online, though I'm not sure if this is reassurance seeking.
