If you’re looking for a fun and safe way to find a bisexual date, you’re looking for CityBi.com. It caters not only to bisexual and bi-curious men, women and couple, the City Bi community wholeheartedly accepts whatever sexual preference you may be into.
The price of finding yourself a date
Standard membership and Pro membership at CityBi.com is a whole lot similar to other sites. With a standard membership, a user can create a profile and upload 27photos of themselves, search for dates with a country filter, and “wink” at people they’re interested in. With a Pro membership, you get to do all that while also having access to do the following:
- a) Send emails to people you’re interested in
- b) Have favorite people and profiles so you can connect faster
- c) Filter the emails and winks you receive
- d) Set your profile, pictures, videos and albums to private
- e) Search for potential matches using advanced location options, keywords and astrological signs
It was some time in 2013 when City Bi opened the site for beta testing, giving Pro membership access to those with free accounts. Now you need to pay $12.99 a month to access the features of paid membership, though they offer 2 months of free subscription upon signing up for 1 month of Pro membership.
City Bi features you wouldn’t want to miss
City Bi encourages members to explore their sexual desires and fantasies with other members by letting the members create and manage events and parties for groups and couples. This can strengthen the bond between friends, but it can also pave the way to new and romantic relationships. Of course, uploading kinky photos is also allowed and highly encouraged!
Weighing the advantages and disadvantages
Aside from entertaining bisexuals, City Bi also caters to the LGBT community. While this shouldn’t be a big deal amidst the rising acceptance of the LGBT genders, this is a big deal with dating sites as there are a few out there that cater solely to bisexuals. Another point is added to CityBi.com for allowing guests to see online members, their profile pictures, and how many friends they currently have in their network.
One downside we see is that non-paying members can only search for people using a country filter. Many other dating sites can narrow the results down to a city or a state even with free membership only. And because it is a gay, straight and bisexual community, it may be harder for a bisexual to actually find another bisexual to date. 90% of the members are from the US, so members from other countries may find it more difficult to find another bisexual from their home countries.
Verdict: As a last resort?
It’s true that it’s a lot harder for bisexual to find dates, contrary to popular belief that their gender preference should actually double their chances of finding a partner. There are now thousands of bisexual dating sites up and running at any given time, but there are only a few that stands out. City Bi is one of the few stand-outs, but only because of the stint they did back in 2013, when they offered beta testing of the site to everybody.
CityBi.com was one of the best startup dating communities, but fast-forward to 2015, and what’s left of the site is some thousands of inactive profiles. It was one of the best there is in bisexual dating, but now it seems like it could like any other dating site on the web, visited by many as kind of a last resort. But don’t fret! Sometimes the things you’re looking for just takes too long to arrive.
