According to OKCupid, 80% of people who identify themselves as bisexual on their site are not really bisexual.
According to a site-wide study by Okcupid.com, only 23% of the people who identified themselves as bisexual messaged both genders. According the study, 41% of “bisexuals” sent messages to only men and 36% of “bisexuals” sent messages to only women.
This suggests that, at least for OK Cupid users, bisexuality is a “hedge” for gay people or is by straight people to appear more sexually adventurous.
Here's a few more interesting thing they found:
- People on average, say they're two inches taller than they really are.
- People exaggerate their income by 20%
- The more attractive a profile pic is, the more likely it is to be out of date.
