So I've not been by, or played, for a few months now; can we be gay yet?

In reality I think you'd find plenty of bisexuals who are more or less average joes and janes, not particularly atypical in thought process or behavior. You'd also find plenty of "open minded" people who happen to only be interested in the opposite gender, despite not being "closed minded."
I'll also add that your wording makes it sound like sexuality is a choice rather than uncontrolled inclination, enough if you didn't intend so.
Hmm. I don't think I expressed my thoughts about Kira very well; looking back at what I wrote, I'm not sure if I even agree with myself. That's what I get for posting about a tricksy topic when I'm tired, I suppose. I'll just say I have no trouble seeing Kira as bisexual and leave it at that.

I do want to clarify a few things, though:

I did not, in any way, refer to bisexuality as "abnormal" or "atypical". Those are your words, not mine. When I referred to Kira as "unconventional", I was talking about her personality, not trying to define her sexuality. Also, I do not in any way think sexuality is a choice, and looking back on my post, I don't see how you got that from what I said. I believe I was pretty clear when I said this:

I really don't see how that, or anything else I said, would lead you to believe I thought sexuality was a conscious choice.

Not yet, sadly enough. Patch 1.4 is a possibility, but there's been no confirmation.

He's so sweet an interesting and he offers to cook for me xD.
I bet Corso could cook up a nice wholesome meal as well. He just strikes me as the homely type.

More than likely we will have to wait till they extend the class story arcs, or when they introduce more companions, until then gotta keep the discussion going.

On the plus side, we learned at the guild summit that SGRs are coming with the story update. And what was mentioned in the E3 promotional video for this year? The story update. So it's coming! ...somewhen in the next six months.

But hey, I've enjoyed the game plenty for almost six months, I'm sure I'll keep liking it for at least the rest of the year.

I think when they do create SGR's they need to create something in the character creation screen or something in the legacy system that will allow you to choose your sexual preference. Not only will this prevent flirt options from popping up with almost every npc you run into, but will also add an even greater rpg element to the game. If you create a new character, you can choose your preference as part of the creation process and that will allow companions and other npc's to be flirted with depending on your preference which will add greater variety to the game. This will also allow for greater character depth so your character can be a better representation so far. Of course extra dialogue will have to be made to come with the addition of SGR. That's how I see it being done. Someone's going to take this the wrong way. I can feel it...
