The Science of Single: One Womans Grand Experiment in Modern Dating, Creating Chemistry, and Finding L ove by Rachel Machacek
One year of dating. One year of looking for love. One uproarious and touching memoir.
After years of dating without a connection, Rachel Machacek vowed to try a more dedicated, less slipshod, more scientific way of finding love. So, she committed a year of her life to trying every mainstream (and not-so-mainstream) method of meeting the right guy. In The Science of Single, Rachel welcomes readers into the findings from her roller- coaster year, and although she set out looking for the right chemistry, what she discovers in the process is hilarious, unexpected, and infinitely more exciting.
"I'm straight. I experimented with a girl in college and loved it."
Well, darling, you've come to the right place. And really, who hasn't been hungry for bi-curious advice at some point in their lives? I get floods of messages from girls asking for my bi-curious help every day. How does one even do it? Our sexuality is the foundation of our lives.
I have only ever had romantic encounters with men, save for a few teenage pashes with gal pals purely for the novelty of it. I know I am straight — I am totally attracted to men and enjoy sex with them — but as I get a bit older I am interested in exploring my sexuality, and that includes sexual experiences with women. My question is, how should I go about this? I adjusted my settings on dating apps for a while, to include men and women, but I felt really disingenuous. I didn't want to lead on women who were exclusively interested in women, or appear like I wanted to use them for sex. So I never replied to them and reverted to my previous 'men only' settings. I am curious about what it would be like to be with a woman, both in a physical and emotional sense, but I wouldn't want to hurt anyone's feelings or make them feel like they were a means to an end.
Maybe it's a friend whose tequila-fuelled "I love yooooooous! Or perhaps it's that woman who always makes a point of sitting next to you at yoga and who picked your car keys up with a wink when you dropped them after class last week. It could be that you've started to re-watch old episodes of Mad Men and you know deep down it's only for Christina Hendricks. Whatever it is that's making you question your sexuality, try not to push it out of your mind. That way lies madness. There is no need to lie awake until 5am watching The L Word on repeat and asking yourself "Am I bi then? Am I bi then?

This is not a new premise for those maturing to try. This is for anyone that feels as though they need to explore their options before knowing that is right for them Everyone is different and society is beginning to fully accept that.
I fall into that 60 percent so do these celebs. Sometimes when I catch myself staring at a beautiful woman in the grocery store, I wonder about my own sexuality. At least according to society. Would I date a woman? Experts support this view. When heterosexual women hook up with other women, their relationships are based on an emotional connection. Lisa Diamond from the University of Utah believes that it only takes the right person to convince a woman to enter into a relationship with someone of the same sex.
Bisexuality may be having a moment. According to certain studies, less than half of today's teens say they're straight, and a third identify as bi. For many women, stigma, stereotypes, and occasionally inaccurate media representation can make coming out as bi or even just admitting it to yourself difficult to navigate. A study published in Prevention Science found that people who identify as bi often face discrimination from both the heterosexual and gay and lesbian communities, and that resulting isolation puts them at a higher risk of anxiety and depression. Finally acknowledging and owning your authentic sexuality can be exciting, affirmative, and even transformative for anyone who spent their formative years feeling weird about being bi.
