Being 100% truthful to your partner is a major part of a stable relationship. Real love is about accepting the other person exactly as they are. Nevertheless, you should only open up to your girlfriend if you feel comfortable doing so. Don't force yourself to do something that could harm you, especially if she has previously displayed homophobic behavior. But bear what I first told you in mind. Ultimately, you get to make your own choice :) Best wishes.

If you want to have an open and honest relationship, it is best to be honest. If your GF does not know you are bisexual, how will she really know you?

if you think its the right thing to do then yes. you should tell her you have been thinking about something for some time and want to share with her. you should say its serious topic and than try to explain yourself and confess you are bi. if she is your gf she should support you and understand good luck :)

Coming out is a personal choice, it's never mandatory, so you should only do that if you feel ready for it. Generally, it's a good idea to share things with the people we love. This part of you is something very important, and you might want to share it with person you love, to make sure she knows and understands you more deeply. But ultimately, it's your choice. If you decide to tell her, you can do it very openly to ensure that she will truly understand what it means to be who you are. She should know that it doesn't affect your relationship or your feelings for her in any way. If your relationship is strong enough, it will resist!

Any way you do it it's going to be hard, you will not want to do it. But if you want to confess, make sure she knows that this doesn't change the relationship. That you are attracted to both females, and the other gender your attracted to. She may not understand that you still like her and you are attracted to her. Make sure she knows that. You can also teach her about the LGBTQ community and tell her that it's okay. For you to get ready for doing this, practice on someone else. Personally, it's easier to come out if you came out to someone before. I hope this helps.

Coming out is a personal choice, and you should do it when you feel the most comfortable. If you feel comfortable, it would be a good idea to share it with people who are closest to you first. Maybe this is friends or family. They may be able to support you tell your girlfriend. But it is really your choice. If you do choose to tell her, do allow and expect her to share their feelings also. It would be unrealistic to lead you down a path of she will not express her own feelings, because she will. Yet, you have been open with you and therefore you have done the kindest thing and been open and honest with her.
