I know I am not the only one facing this conundrum, because throughout my searches, there were many women who included in their profile summary a clear disclaimer.
Whether they had initially checked "bi" or "gay," many women stated, "I identify as queer but picked [___] for lack of better options." So I follow suit.
Even if a gay girl is open to dating a bi girl, even if she doesn't harbor preconceived conceptions about bisexual women, my guess is that to make things easier and more streamlined, she is going to search for gay women.
To further support this assumption, out of the 24 emails I received within the first 12 hours after creating my profile, I was not contacted by one single female.
I have always been an advocate of online dating, for a variety of reasons.
