15 Secret Signs of Female Bisexuality to Recognize a Bisexual GirlFFOL Editor 1
You think you may be bisexual? Are you trying to figure out if a girl you like is bisexual or not? It’s time to look at the signs of female bisexuality.
There are signs of female bisexuality that you’ll be able to spot out to help you figure out either your own sexuality or the sexuality of someone else.
Dealing with uncertainty in sexuality
Growing up sucks. I know, I should be more positive, but it sucks, it really does. Not only are you trying to live, pay your bills, get a job, graduate college, but on top of that, you should figure out who you are and what makes you happy. That’s not a lot of pressure at all, right?
This is where sexual identity plays a big role. And when we’re in the dating world, it can even be more complicated. Now it’s not just about you, it’s about someone else as well. You may be into a girl, but you’re just not sure if she’s into you or not. [Read: Are you bisexual? How to understand your true desires]
Reading the signs of female bisexuality
Now, figuring out someone’s sexuality without them telling you isn’t that easy. Firstly, people are not so forthcoming with blurting out their sexuality to people they don’t really know, especially since bisexuality is often labeled as being confused.
But that’s not the only reason. Many people are still figuring out their sexuality and even though they may give off bisexual vibes, they haven’t confirmed it with themselves. So even though you’re trying to figure out someone’s sexuality, don’t assume that they have it settled in their head.
No one said sexuality is a walk in the park. But you can at least learn the signs of female bisexuality to help you along the way.
#1 You feel it. How can I explain this, you’ll feel if you’re bisexual or if someone else is. Of course, these signs can help you. But at the end of the day, you have intuition. This may be vague, but there’s no other way to say it. You just feel it. [Read: How to listen to your gut and strengthen your inner voice]
#2 She tells you. This is obviously the clearest and easiest way to figure out if someone’s bisexual. There’s no other sign that is clearer. If a woman tells you she’s bisexual, she already has it figured out.
She’s had the feeling. Maybe she has been in a bisexual relationship, or had an experience and she knows her sexuality. So, if she tells you, then you know. [Read: How to understand if you’re a lesbian or bisexual]
#3 She’s hooked up with the same gender before. Okay, some of us have had those moments where we’re drunk and made out with our friends. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re bisexual. Now, if, for example, you’ve hooked up with the same gender and you really liked it and want to do it again, that may be a sign of bisexuality.
#4 There’s an attraction to both genders. Female bisexuality is based on a woman being attracted to both men and women. This doesn’t mean they’ve had sexual experiences with the same gender. But, when they see a woman, they’re sexually attracted to her. You don’t need to have sex with someone to know that you’re attracted to them.

#5 She’s dated both men and women in the past. Now, she doesn’t technically call them relationships, more like casual dating. But it seems she’s casually dated people from both genders. If she’s had past flings with both men and women, well, she may be bisexual.
#6 She checks out other women. You may be having dinner with her and a good looking girl walks by and you both check her out. Okay, women look at other women, this doesn’t mean they’re bisexual.
But, there’s a difference between looking at other women and checking them out. If she’s openly talking about their beauty or specific features that aren’t related to their outfit or make-up, she could be bisexual. [Read: Sexually fluid: What does this even mean in the dating world?]
#7 She talks a lot about her same-sex experiences. We’ve all had some fun times. She seems to bring it up in conversation a lot. Whenever there’s an opportunity, she uses it right away to talk about that one time in the jacuzzi with some girl or a threesome she had on the weekend. Her stories seem never ending. Now, this doesn’t mean she’s bisexual but certainly leans on that side. [Read: Is she a lesbian? 20 signs your BFF is too close for comfort]
#8 She dresses like a tomboy. Of course, there are bisexual women that dress more feminine than others, but there are many bisexual women that dress more masculine or gender-neutral.
#9 She identifies with LGBTQ. If she’s openly told you that she identifies with the LGBTQ community, then she’s most likely either a lesbian or bisexual. Now, if you’re a guy, she’s probably bisexual. If you’re a woman, well, she could be either. If she identifies with the LGBTQ community, ask her what she identifies as.
#10 She’s one of the guys. This can be considered a stereotype because I even act like one of the guys and that doesn’t mean I’m attracted to the same sex. But if you’re looking for signs of female bisexuality, you could use this as a loose sign that she could be bisexual. She acts more masculine, hangs out with a lot of guys, and most of them interact with her as if she was a guy.
#11 Her friends are mostly from the LGBTQ community. Most of her friends are a part of the LGBTQ community. Most of her girlfriends are lesbians, her guy friends are gay. Again, it doesn’t mean she’s a lesbian or bisexual, but people tend to hang out with others that they identify with and feel comfortable and safe around.

#12 She accessorizes with LGBTQ signage. She wears LGBTQ t-shirts or pins. If her t-shirt says “I’m bisexual!” or “Gay rights matter” she could very well be bisexual. But, on the flip side, she could be straight and simply supporting the LGBTQ community.
If she has family members or friends that are gay, wearing a pin could be to support them and not mean that she’s bisexual. [Read: Commonly accepted sex myths that are so wrong]
#14 It’s all in the eyes. If you’re a woman and notice that another woman is holding eye contact with you for a longer period of time, she may be indicating that she likes you. It’s normal to make eye contact with people. But, if it’s longer than usual, she’s trying to tell you something. [Read: How to tell if a woman is attracted to another woman]
#15 Know that there are no real signs. Here’s the thing, all these signs don’t necessarily mean that she’s bisexual unless she’s straight up told you that she is. A straight or lesbian woman can wear baggy clothes, support the LGBTQ community and not actually be bisexual herself. This is why the best confirmation of her sexuality would be if she told you.
No one said figuring out your sexuality was going to be easy. After looking at the signs of female bisexuality, are you? Is your crush?
