Thanks to years of hard work by LGBT activists, people in certain corners of the world feel more comfortable about coming out than ever before.
A recent survey found that 43 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds don’t identify as gay or straight; while another piece of research has suggested that women are never heterosexual, only gay or bisexual.
Even if you go on one or two unsuccessful dates during the week, you still give off a vibe at the bar that says, "Yes, I am dating," as opposed to the I-haven't-been-on-a-date-in-three-months vibe that people (annoyingly) tend to pick up on, as if through an extra sense.
Nevertheless, as easy as online dating has become (it's evolved into the mainstream and is popular in New York City and across the country), it is still difficult to navigate as a bisexual woman.
Americans have a well-documented tendency to drastically overestimate the percentage of queer folks among us.
Research has found that men who are bisexual - and feel comfortable being out - are better in bed - and the relationship develops - more caring long-term partners and fathers.
Some women who took part in an Australian study even said they would never be able to go back to dating straight men at all.
It turned out that straight men were the ones with more emotional and misogynistic baggage.
This is partly due to the fact that as these men tried to understand their sexuality, they also questioned the most negative aspects of masculine character traits: including aggression.
