Howdy. I’m Patrick RichardsFink. Thanks for reading my blog.
I an a Licensed Professional Counselor in private practice in MN serving the LGBTQ+ community. I’ve been bisexual as long as I’ve been aware of having a sexuality, but have only been out to the world for a couple years. My partner, with whom I am in an exclusive monogamous relationship, has known since before we met. I am also on the end of the Autism Spectrum called Asperger’s (pre DSM 5).
If the preceding sentences cause you any confusion? You’re reading the right blog. If you are nodding your head and saying “Wow, I thought I was the only one”, again, you are in the right place.
Originally, I intended this blog as a place to talk about a variety of issues, but it’s pretty quickly gotten much more tightly focused. So the content is primarily bisexual issues, with a little bit about Asperger’s and the occasional one-off about stuff that has really gotten under my skin. I also may have guest bloggers from time to time, and will gladly expand on discussions in the comments. I also blog at Huffington Post, but not as much as I do here as I find it hard to say anything in 1000 words or less, which is why my middle name on FaceBook is “tldr”. UPDATE: I am semiretired from blogging, so new updates are rare.
I have collected the first 50,000 words or so of this blog (plus a couple of posts in other locations and otherwise unpublished articles) in an ebook available from Amazon. It’s on the sidebar. I’ve chosen to do this as a way to get a little monetary compensation without banner ads (which I find annoying, and which I would not have control over the content of, which is a serious issue for me).
I served on the board of BiNet USA from 2013 to 2016.
Thanks for being here. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
