Hi, I‘m Matt. I am Bisexual.

my life is pretty straightforward. I have have a wife and 5 year old son who are my whole world. I'm currently unemployed because of a layoff but I'm on the hunt so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I play alot of Playstation 4. I just finished playing the Uncharted remastered trilogy. I smoke weed as well but there's not much else to say about that. I'm a pretty big Star Wars nerd but please don't bring up episode VII. I'm also a big Brony and I love to talk about it. My most favorite foods are mexican, seafood and pizza. I love to cook and I attended culinary school which led to a job at a buffet for a while. I'm a huge dodgers fan. I love baseball. It's the only sport I follow. I don't play any sports though. That was back in high school. I do ride my bike though. It's great fun.

What being bisexual means to me

To me it gives me identity. I'm bisexual. There's really not much to say. It's who I am. It's what I'll always be. It gives me great pride to be able to accept it.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

It may sound over used but bisexuals are just normal humans. We live lives exactly like heterosexuals. Maybe with just a little more spice. :)

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

It was a very long one. I come from a christian home and I still to this day cannot talk to any of my family about it except for my brother. So I'm still "in the closet" if you must put it that way.

One day I talked to myself about it. I was completely honest with myself and I came to the decision that my happiness and identity come before people's opinion of me. I haven't been able to announce it formally yet. It will take baby steps.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

The toughest thing for me is telling my family and friends. My wife and brother know but that's it.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

It's the community. The acceptance and understanding and love.

How have other people in your life reacted to your bisexuality?

My wife and brother have been very supportive. I'm very happy to have them in my life. :)

What advice do you have for someone who thinks they may be bi or who is in the process of coming out as bi?

Sit yourself down and have a long honest talk with yourself.
