Having certain feelings and acting on them are very different things - the first is not a choice, the second is. And you may have several reasons for making this choice. That doesn't change your identity, you're still bisexual whether you act on your feelings or not. However, it's always good to ask ourselves what's the reason for not wanting to act on a feeling: sometimes we have a psychological block about it for social reasons, and overcoming it would make us happy and free. Anyway, everything is fine as long as you genuinely feel happy with it!
