Tyler Blackburn has revealed he is dating an ‘amazing guy’.
Back in April, the Pretty Little Liars actor came out as bisexual saying he's privately identified as such since his teens but has only recently found the courage to fully embrace his sexuality.
And now in his first interview since coming out, the actor told Playboy that he is in a committed relationship with an ‘amazing guy’.
He said: “I had to really be patient with myself—and more so with men.
“Certain things are much easier with women, just anatomically, and there’s a freedom in that.
“As I got older, I realised good sex is when you really have something between the two of you.
“It’s not just a body. The more I’ve realised that, the more able I am to be settled in my sexuality. I’m freer in my sexuality now. I’m very sexual; it’s a beautiful aspect of life.
“Once I decided to date men, I was like, Please just let me be gay and be okay with that, because it would be a lot fucking easier.
“At times, bisexuality feels like a big grey zone.
“I’ve had to check myself and say, I know how I felt when I was in love with women and when I slept with women. That was true and real.
“Don’t discredit that, because you’re feeding into what other people think about bisexuality.”
