A bisexual man has spoken about how he was a subject of biphobia after coming out to his girlfriend.

The Reddit user doybanger was dating the woman for a couple of weeks and despite having had hooked up with some men in the past, he had only been dating women since autumn.

However, when their conversation turned more sexual and he revelaed he was bisexual, she didn’t take it well and ended their relationship after sleeping with him.

He wrote on a now deleted Reddit post: “I’ve been seeing this woman for a couple of weeks, and everything was going great.

“Friday night was her first time at my place. We were having some wine and the conversation slowly turned more sexual.

“I told her I’d slept with guys in the past but I’m still far more attracted to women in general. This did not go over well.

“Even then we still ended up having sex that night. But the next morning she told me that the whole issue was not gonna work for her.

“And that she did not want to continue seeing each other.”

He went on to explain that he felt like she was just “daring me to prove that I was not ‘just gay’.”

“Her entire attitude around it was kind of immature and way too dismissive, unfortunately,” he added.

“Basically, she presumed that I have to be always obsessed with dick, and she just does not have the parts to satisfy that.”

He added that it “stings” because he had really liked her and opened up about his sexuality to her because he thought the relationship was going somewhere.
