Changing His OKCupid Profile from Straight to Bisexual

MTI5MjAyOTMyNzc1MTc2MjAyZachary Zane was pretty brave, but he did it it and it changed his life. And, he writes about it: “In one of the proudest moments of my life, I changed my OkCupid profile from straight to bisexual.”

He found that like Rodney Dangerfield’s joke that it really did double his chance for a date on a Friday night. He got offers for orgies, bondage play and meeting people of every sex. He is a Los Angeles native living in Boston.

Here is his story:

IT HAPPENED TO ME: I Came Out as Bisexual and Now Can’t Date Anyone Gay or Straight

He said it took five years to have sex with a man while he was sober, even though he liked dating women. It didn’t confuse him, but it consumed him. “I like the attention. I’m just horny and open-minded. I could never actually love a man.”

Find out who he ended up with (at least for now).
