* In the dystopian setting of ''Film/TheLobster'', adults are forcibly paired up through a dating service. When David tries to sign up as a bisexual, he is informed that the option "no longer exists". After a long pause, he decides to sign up as straight.

* Zigzagged with Sara Lance in the Franchise/ArrowVerse. On Arrow, Sara and Oliver were lovers, and was on the Queen's Gambit when the ship went down. Sara went on to join the League of Assassins, she became the lover of Nyssa, daughter of Ras Al' Ghul. When Sara returned to Star (then Starling) City, she and Oliver became physical for a time before breaking up for good. On Legends of Tomorrow except for a ShipTease moment with Captain Cold, she's only been with women.

* In ''Series/{{Friends}}'', prior to the start of the series, Ross's wife Carol comes out as a lesbian after seven years of marriage to a man - which is perhaps not in itself unusual, particularly in a less than gay-friendly early '90s context (especially since it's later made clear that her parents are at least vaguely homophobic). However, it's clear that she and Ross still enjoyed a sexual relationship together for a while after she got involved with Susan - not only does he explicitly bring up on one occasion how they had "some good times before she became a lesbian...and a few afterwards, as well," but a flashback to exactly one year before the pilot episode reveals that their son Ben must have been conceived at least three months after she admitted to seeing Susan. However, bisexuality is never brought up, and everyone accepts that she's exclusively gay.

** In one episode Joey refers to Ross as a guy who "married a woman who was nearly a lesbian, and then pushed her over the edge." Granted, it's intended as an insult and it's said by Joey, but Carol being bisexual would make a lot more sense.
** It might be that Carol is portrayed as gay to make her more sympathetic. An openly bisexual woman cheating on her husband, whether with a woman or man, and eventually leaving him for her new lover just wouldn't be as likeable (and may have a few UnfortunateImplications) as a repressed lesbian who's dealing with her sexual awakening and the breakdown of her marriage in the best way she can.
** Also, Phoebe is shown to be attracted to women on occasion, and seems to be seriously considering asking out Ross and Monica's ridiculously beautiful cousin Cassie (although it could be argued that this is more a case of Even the Girls Want Her / If Its You Its OK). She is, however, openly admiring of attractive women on a number of occasions. Despite this, she's only ever shown dating men.

** Archer subverts this to near the point of EveryoneIsBi. Pam is blatantly open about her equal attraction to both genders, Cheryl/Carol cares more about her [[EroticAsphyxiation choking kink]] than the gender of the person choking her, Archer has admitted to gay fantasies about [[IfIsYouItsOK Joe Frasier]] (not to mention [[LastRequest kissing]] Ramon), [[PitySex Lana]] and [[WhatDidIDoLastNight Malory]] have both slept with Pam, and Krieger is...[[AnythingThatMoves Krieger]]. Cyril may be the only heterosexual member of the main cast.

* Thankfully, this is completely and utterly {{averted}} in ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'', where Darryl, Rebecca's boss, becomes attracted to a guy (White Josh) and temporarily panics (Darryl has an ex-wife and daughter). After an enlightening yoga session however (where he looks at both male and female butts), he realizes that he is a "both-sexual." Then, because ''Crazy Ex-Girlfriend'' is a musical, he sings a song called [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5e7844P77Is "Getting Bi"]] which actually addresses bisexual erasure.

* ''Series/Dynasty'': Depending on what season and how it was written, Steven (who openly admitted he was gay in the show's first season) may or may not have had some genuine attraction to Claudia and Sammy Jo. Not that it ever lasted. By the reunion mini-series he had settled down permanently with Bart Fallmont, a love interest from a previous season.

* ''Series/{{Emmerdale}}'' seems to be taking this to almost psychotic extremes with Robert Sugden. During his previous stints on the show, he had numerous sexual relationships with females and clearly enjoyed them. On his return, he marries a woman and, while it was probably for money rather than love, there was no suggestion that he didn't enjoy sleeping with her. Yet every single character that finds out he cheated on her with Aaron seems to take it as read that he's a closeted gay who only got married because he's in denial. On the rare occasion that "bisexual" is suggested, it tends to be sarcastic or derogatory, with most conversations consisting of "You're gay"/"I'm not gay" arguments.
