Bi–Buy–Bye

Bi: a combining form meaning “twice,” or “two,” used in the formation of compound words.

Bipolar: characterized by both manic and depressive episodes.
Bipolar disorder affects approximately 5.7 million adult Americans, or about 2.6% of the U.S. population age 18 and older every year. 


From one pole to the other.
Bilingual: a person fluent in two languages.
The percentage of bilinguals is definitely on the rise. It was 11 percent in 1980, 14 percent in 1990, and close to 20 percent currently.

This is me.

Bisexual: a person who is sexually attracted to both men and women. 
78% of Americans say that they are completely heterosexual while 4% say that they are completely homosexual. 16% of American adults say that they fall somewhere in between. 12% of heterosexual American adults say that they have had a sexual experience with someone of the same sex. 24% of people aged 30 to 44 say that they're somewhere on the scale of bisexuality, compared to 8% or less of over-45s.
