Abstract: Let $ M$ be a pseudo-Riemannian manifold. Locally a distance function may be defined. The bisector of two points is the set of points equidistant from these two points. Our main result is that the bisector of two points which are not zero distance apart is a totally geodesic submanifold of $ M$ if and only if $ M$ has constant curvature.
