That's just the way it has been in my experience. I also know a few lesbian women. They are attracted to women, aren't attracted to men, and have had various degrees of relationship success. Once again this doesn't mean that this is true for all lesbians, this is just from my experience. I know a few gay guys. One is my uncle through marriage (one more is his "husband" of course) and they tell me that they never felt women to be especially attractive. Some of them tried to make a male-female relationship work and failed. Some got married, had kids, saw those marriages fall apart for rather obvious reasons. What does it all mean? Hell if I know. I think we can say it's more complicated than trying to label someone's sexual identity and then expecting them to fit that label.
I know of some bisexuals too. Like this one elected to congress and openly bisexual. http://www.thedailydolt.com/2012/11/...r-of-congress/
My former roomate who I went to hi school with, lived a straight lifestyle until her 30's, even got married. Then had an encounter with a lesbian and decided that's what she was. Then I had a male gay friend, who decided after living the gay lifestyle, he wasn't gay...and later got married.
I am not saying there are no bisexuals. All I'm suggesting is that some people are confused, some experiment and decide later what they are—whatever they are.
